When it comes to blushes I'll definitely admit that I'm a hoarder. But when it comes to orange blushes, it's more of an obsession. When you find a color that compliments your skin tone, you tend to buy more of that color. I think I have about 24 total, but the 10 listed in this post are all permanent and still available online (links provided for convenience). I didn't think it was fair to include orange blushes that were LE or no longer available. I like to rotate my blushes giving them all some love and even though they may look new, I've actually worn all of them.

Beauty ~ Tom Ford Honeymoon Palette | Chanel L'Intemporel De Chanel Palette | Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Blush
These are a few items that I've been looking forward to wearing and creating some fun looks for Spring/Summer and beyond. The Tom Ford Honeymoon Palette was just released in the Tom Ford Spring 2016 collection. The Chanel L'Intemporel De Chanel Palette was from the Chanel Fall 2015 collection and the Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Blush is part of the new Chanel Spring 2016 collection

I know..... I know it's a sad situation when you just throw all of your precious blushes in a drawer never to be seen or touched again. I was feeling this way so I finally went to the 99 cents store and brought 10 of these small baskets, I also organized my highlighter drawer too. I probably have every orange blush known to man in my stash, for awhile I was collecting them and after counting 25 I said enough! Then a few of my readers wanted to see live swatches of all my orange blushes so I did a blog post and swatch video.... you can find it here. There are about 5 that I decided to keep on my vanity for easy access which were all the Tom Ford, Estee Lauder and Chanel blushes. I figured I might as well use them frequently since they're the most expensive blushes in my collection.

Tom Ford Cheek Color in Savage is one of those blushes that you really need in your collection. The velvety texture and smooth application screams love at first blush (haha). This is the third TF blush that I own, I own Wicked and Flush, both very well used and loved. However, with Savage I feel this will definitely become one of my daily staples.

Swatches ~ Mac Vamplify, MACnificent Me Luzmaria & Tresor, Dazzleshadow and Studio Sculpt Superblack Mascara
I purchased the several items from the Mac Cosmetics store in my local Macy's and a few others online. I don't think that I have very many fall lipsticks so I wanted to add just a few to my stash. I'm still not sure if dark lipsticks a flattering on women over a certain age but I couldn't resist trying these two colors since the swatches I'd seen were breathtaking and complimented the fall eye looks that i've been so eagerly trying.

Last week I uploaded a Blog post entitled "Top 10 Orange Blushes Every Girl Needed for Spring" and I mentioned that I would be adding a video to compliment the post. Well, I decided to make a video including my entire Orange/Coral Blush collection. I hope you enjoy the live outdoor swatches!

The Tie-Dye Summer Collection"(limited edition) Blush in Coral Sunset is a beautiful kaleidoscope of colors ranging from corals to oranges with a bright streak of white to give it a little flair. I missed out on the beautiful Dior My Lady blush from the spring collection, as soon as it was released, it sold out pretty fast, so I decided to order this one from Macy's as soon as I saw it online.

Literally nano-seconds after I ordered these from the Urban Decay website it was announced that Sephora was now carrying this entire line. I could have racked up some major points on this purchase with Sephora had I waited another day..... note to self.... have a little more patience! This blush is absolutely gorgeous! It would've definitely been in my Top 10 Blushes for Spring if I'd waited another week to write the post.

I'm re uploading this post from 2013 of my Nars Blush Collection because I've added a few more blushes that I wanted to include into this collection blog post. I now have a total of 13 Nars blushes total that I have in my collection now.

Among the items I purchased from the new Gucci Cosmetics Line was the Gucci Cherry Nectar Blush. I chose this blush for no special reason. I have an array of corals, peaches and oranges in my collection already so I thought this would fall under the plums, wines and berries which I have a limited collection in my stash.

This Tom Ford Stroked Blush Highlighter Duo is one of the most beautiful highlighter/blush duos that I've ever laid eyes on is none other than the Tom Ford Duo in Softcore. Well, Softcore was all sold out everywhere but I was able to snag Stroked which is just as beautiful but a tad bit lighter than Softcore.

I thought this packaging was absolutely adorable! I picked up almost all the items from this collection except for the one of the blushes, I don't remember if there were any lipsticks released in this or not, nevertheless I don't really wear lipsticks any longer.

How in the world did I end up with so many blushes! Well, I initially placed my order with Mac online for two Sunset Beach blushes and two lipsticks from the Proenza Schouler collection. At the time, they were completely sold out of the Ocean City blushes, so I placed an order with Nordstroms online for two Ocean City blushes as well.

Beauty Encounter. I just couldn't pass up a $15.00 brand name blush. I ordered these the same day that I posted the sale link which you can find HERE. I posted that link on the 7th and they arrived today the 10th. You can still order these blushes online at Beauty Encounter for $15.00 each. The colors are # 21 and #18 and they are discontinued blushes and no longer on the YSL website.

There's something about Nars Blushes that I just can't get enough of. Whenever there's a new blush that comes out, I search all over the internet looking for swatches until I can find a swatch that comes pretty close to my complexion. I have a deep infinity for orange blushes and my collection is growing by the minute. I feel about orange the way most girls feel about pink. Pink blushes really don't show up on me all too well, unless they're a deep rose or fuchsia color and have darker pigmentation to them.

Rock & Republic (R&R) was a makeup line that's been discontinued for about 2yrs now. Their collection contained about 10 beautiful blushes that were to die for. R&R blush in "Lust" is my favorite blush of all times... hands down, there's no other blush in this Universe that I love more than Lust. It's breathtakingly beautiful on my ebony skin and gives my cheeks an amazing glow that I can't even begin to describe in words.
