My Top 3 Winter Blushes

Top Winter Blushes

MAC Springsheen Blush

Too Faced Full Bloom Lip & Cheek Creme Color in Sweet Pea

YSL Cream Blush in #9 Baby Doll

Oh my… how much I love me a good blush! Blushes, along with lipsticks, are definitely my beauty weaknesses and I pretty much never leave the house without some gracing on my cheeks. I can basically pop some concealer and mascara on, add some bold lipstick and just swirl some blush on the apples of my cheeks and I am good to go. I tend to change my blush pretty much every day but here are the top three gems that I keep coming back to since the colder months rolled in.

Pretty much a cult beauty product, MAC Springsheen (review and swatches here) is on top of my list and for a good reason. This gorgeous peachy pink is absolutely beautiful and the golden shimmer running through it completely stole my heart. Springsheen adds lovely warmth to my cheeks and its stunning golden sheen perks up my dull skin beautifully. Thanks to this beaut I look so much more alive and healthy and when I fancy more of a glow-y, dewy finish I opt for this one. As with any MAC blush, I can’t fault the formula of Springsheen – it is everything you look for in a blush, and more.

Too Faced strikes again – I rediscovered one of their products in my stash and I am now completely smitten by it. Yes, I am talking about you Full Bloom Lip& Cheek Crème Color in Sweet Pea (review and swatches here)! When my skin is dry and dull my usual partner in crime has been this gem and it works wonders, let me tell you! It is the perfect winter cream blush and its gorgeous medium toned berry shade compliments my darker, plum-y lipsticks beautifully. The Full Bloom Crème Color is super creamy and leaves the skin looking so luminous and dewy, whilst adding beautiful hint of color. It glides on the cheeks so effortlessly creating the illusion of super healthy skin, which let’s face it – I don’t exactly have during the winter. Sweet Pea is really pigmented so you only need the tiniest amount of product. Just dab it on those apples and enjoy your brighter, blotch-free complexion.

Last but certainly not least on my list we have YSL Cream Blush in #9 Baby Doll (review and swatches here). I never thought that this would make a great winter blush but it luckily proved me wrong. Baby Doll adds the most beautiful, natural frosty flush of color and makes you look as if you’ve just came home from the cold outside. I adore how fresh and radiant my skin looks when I wear this. The bright bubblegum pink shade looks a bit too much in the pan but on the cheeks is a whole nother story – it looks divine and you won’t end up looking like clown, I promise. The cream-to-powder formula of this is right up my street as it manages to add the glow and luminosity I love, minus the grease. Brilliant.

Have you tried any of these blushes? Which is your favorite winter blush?

  4. Mac's springsheen is such a gorgeous color, I am loving that shade and how it isn't an official pink pink but instead has a bit of a coral undertone

  10. I feel like bright pinks tend to transcend the seasons because they imitate that natural flush and just liven up the skin! I've been loving the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Dollface which is another pretty bright pink :)
