Fall 2014 Picks: Blush!

I was going through my blushes to find the best colors for Fall, and I had some faves from all kinds of price points and wanted to share this list with you!


My Fave Shades for Fall 2014:




Sleek Blush By 3 in Sugar: 
This blush is BEAUTIFUL. These colors remind me of the leaves when they change
color from green to an orange then red and then brown. The pigmentation is the BEST out of these blushes on this list and it's price is pretty awesome for a trio of shades. You can find more of these at the Sleek Cosmetics website.



Elf Blush in Berry Merry: This blush is one of my all time faves for like forever! It's a BEAUTIFUL deep berry shade with a teensy amount of shimmer that just catches the light in all of the right ways. It's awesome by itself and looks very pretty layered with a light pink or gold blush too. It's a steal for under $4!


Benefit's Dallas: This is a nice matte deep brown shade. I use this for contouring sometimes, and I love layering it with other blush too, as well as applying it under a lighter blush to help push the color "upwards." This is a bit more pricey...it's almost $30.00, but even getting your hands on a sample would be awesome for your handbag and your wallet--not to mention your cheeks. 



Elf Mineral Pressed Blush in Jet Setter: Oh golly gee...I love this little round token of rocks-my-face-off flush! The formula is SO pigmented, it lasts for a very long time with little fading throughout the day and it would look beautiful on ANY skin tone. If you are looking for a soft medium berry shade for Fall, this is for you. It's also $5, better quality than any blush at the drugstore for an even better price. Aw yisss!



Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful: This shade is beautiful and playful--not as dramatic as the other blushes on this list but it will work for any skin tone and is super pigmented, made with awesome ingredients, Has nice packaging and blends pretty well. When paired with Elf's Vixen or Berry Merry or Benefit's Dallas, it's stunning. This blush is upwards of around $30, so it's a bit pricey, but a little really goes a long way with this product.



Elf Cream Blush in Vixen: This is a VERY sexy matte berry shade. The formula is smooth and silky, light as a feather and it stays ALL DAY LONG. These are $6, and I feel like they are worth $20+. The formula is luxurious and creamy, you won't feel the product, it blends like a dream and gives such a nice warm flush that looks very natural. Def. a great bargain blush!



Mac Blush in Blushbaby: This is a very pretty muted berry shade that's warm and light. It's pigmented, has a nice feel and blends really well. This looks gorgeous alone or with a deeper shade blended on the bottom of the cheek bone. The price point of this one is kinda high, at around $20, but there's a lot of product, and it will last quite some time with regular usage. 



This is my list of Fave blushes for Fall 2014. What's your go-to blush for Fall? And what would you suggest for myself and for the other gals? I'd love to hear which ones you really dig!
