The Lipstick League - Week of 8.3.15

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

Name the ONE blush you find yourself reaching for the most right now. 

G's answer: I have recently fallen back in love with the L'Oreal Visible Blur Blush in Soft Berry that I reviewed for you last summer. So easy to apply, and I love the flush it gives my cheeks. I reached for it every day last week!

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by we heart this - Brooke over at Blushing Noir always introduces me to a must-have, like this Dior 556 Contraste Horizon palette. Plus, I love her photos (especially her swatches and eye images.)


  1. I don't always do blush, but probably the ones I'm reaching for the most are The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Velvet Sticks. For summer I'm using the coral and the pink shades, or mixing them together a bit.

  2. From the barbie loves mac collection Don’t Be Shy Bright pink (satin)

  3. I recently rediscovered a splurge from a few years ago. Chanel Blush Horiztonal (idk how it was spelled in French since I don't have it with me). But right now I am loving it even though I was shopping my stash for a cream blush which is what I like this time of year.

  4. Replies
    1. Oh, right! And Red Vino!! Wonderful colors that last!

  5. An old favorite: clinique Clover blush. Was the awesomest color ever. They have the "New Clover" now, but it's just not the same.....

  6. I have been using Clinique Chestnut Blush. I have a beautiful Milani Romantic Rose that I like to stare at, but haven't used.
