which pinks have you tried so far?
i am still exploring what i like best best. can't decide. sometimes i like them all. sometimes i dun.

diff colors match diff clothes and create diff image. eg. pure pink blush with no peach undertones will not go well with yellow clothes. something brown, peach or amber (red brown) goes better. pink blush can be used to create the very blushed and nude glossy lips image very popular with sugar sweetness. peach amber can be used to create healthy more active glow or when you emphasize your lips etc. also i dun think strong pink blush goes well deep red or bright red lipsticks so you need a few to mix and match.

for some brands you can't see the diff cos the color selection is few and also the color is not as strong.

i have used MAC too but i prefer Shu. MAC is not bad as well for blush. i used to own angel. but that was a long time ago. except i really hate how the adverts scream sex and tartiness.

hi anna
hmmm...me oso dunno leh...how to describe leh??? so far i stick to all the lighter colours one..cos i think at least if not enuff can add more colour rather than have a strong one lor. maybe i not used to strong colours lor...prefer pastel kind.

hi adel

i think Origins got this "pinch your cheeks" quite natural and lasting...but gotta blend it in cos it is like creamy kind...something like paint. think dat one can last quite long cos my fren tried before...me lazy kinda so wun want to spend so much time blending it so didnt buy.

shu blushes already last me the entire day... so i nvr think of how to make them last longer. if you really need to, dust on top with loose powder after blusher.

or can go for cream blushers but those are much harder to blend. you'll hv to blend like a fiend.

starmoon
i mean the numbers. shu blushers come in numbers. 33e for eg sells really well here. although i am not quite a fan of that color. shld go check out 19d but is not available locally. there is a big rave abt that color but i din really like it. its bright red in the pan but a peachy pink when applied. gd if you like peach.

racherlle n starmoon,
i had wanted to try origins "Pinch your cheeks" but when i try it out at the counter, it looked really red. Need to check, after blending, wld u be able to achieve literally a "pinch your cheeks" natural look or very make-up like??? N is it very difficult (n take very long) to blend??

Anyone has suggestions for natural looking blusher. Those that will make u look glowing n healthy?

hi b2b3m4

Hi Lourdes

I was looking at the peach one too.....now wondering if i shld buy that too......hey is the Lemond-aid useful? will it make us look yellower since we're asians.....i thot lemon aid may be more useful for the ang mos

Hi Lourdes

I read some bad reviews on lemon aid. Is it really that hard to apply it on? Will this clash with our Asian Skin tone?

Hi Lourdes

In amazon.com lor.....some say very hard to apply on....texture too sticky etc.....

Hey is it like cream concealor texture?
 

lourdes

hi sowie,

i only apply on the eyelid area but if you gona apply other places like lower eyelid than i think not suitable cos very hard to apply and somehow dry...

not really cream texture, is soft texture kind.


hi adel,

they give me eyecon sample but i never use, don't know whether good or not...

Hi ladies

I ordered the Dandelion blusher....gotta rave to u gals that it's really as good as it says on the reviews......esp for fair skin gals.......it's so natural tat i looked like i had faint rosy pink cheeks from exercising.....totally natural looking, makes me look healthier......try to pool orders to split the shipping costs...I ordered mine from the Benefit website directly.....got it within 2 weeks of ordering....

Best is you wont' have to worry about overdoing it and having 2 apple cheeks instead.....cos the powder is quite light in pigmentation....u can dust over yr forehead and chin for a healthy glow....totally worth the price.....
