Discovering Old Favourites

Don’t you just love it when you rifle through your make up and find some old bits that you fall in love with? I certainly do! So I found a box full of make up that I’d half sorted through and must have forgotten about and came across a few blushes that I haven’t used in a while!

The Barry M blush is one I’ve had for well over a year now, used a few times and really liked it but then somehow forgot about it?! It’s a lovely bright pink blush which is quite heavily pigmented but with light application it’s such a beautiful colour on the cheeks. It’s quote a bit brighter than I usually go but just a light sweep really looks nice against my skin tone.
The Bourjois blush I’ve had even longer and never used before for some reason unknown to me! It’s quite similar to NARS Orgasm but with a brighter pink base colour which I prefer a lot more than Orgasm. It’s has a lovely powdery perfumey scent to it which I love too! This had been my go to blush pretty much all week!
Last but not least is Natural Collections Peach Melba which I wore religiously every day not long ago but for the past few weeks it’s just sat in my face box untouched! I love this blush and have raved about it many a time before. It’s a gorgeous peachy shade which looks so natural on my cheeks and for £1.99 you can’t go wrong.

    Love the packaging of the Bourjois one ^^
    It's fun to "shop" our own collection, that way nothing goes to waste. Lovely blog ♥ xo

    how great is the wear on the natural collection blusher? I was eyeing them up the other day but i'm a bit cautious? bit of a makeup snob what can I do? 😉 xoxo

    Love Natalie

    I swatched some Natural Collection blushes in Boots a few days ago and was so impressed! They are well pigmented and soft! I only stopped myself from buying it because I've got sooo many blushes! But I will defnitely pick it up when I'll manage to finish at least one from my collection 🙂
