Beauty | Top 10 Orange Blushes Every Girl Needs for Spring!

10 Orange Blushes Every Girl Needs for Spring
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

Beauty ~ Finally a Much Needed Blush Organization By Brand

Blush Organization & Storage

 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.

Swatches ~ Tom Ford Savage Blush Swatched on Brown Skin

 Tom Ford Savage Blush

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

Mac Vamplify, MACnificent Me Luzmaria & Tresor, Dazzle Shadow 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.

Swatches ~ Dior "The Tie-Dye Summer Collection" Blush in Coral Sunset

 Dior "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.

Swatches ~ Urban Decay Revolution Afterglow Blush, Lip Gloss & Nail Color

Urban Decay Revolution Afterglow Blush, Lip Gloss & Nail Color

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.

Swatches ~ My NARS Blush Collection Updated


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.

Swatches ~ Gucci Cosmetics Cherry Nectar Blush

Gucci Cherry Nectar Blush

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.

Swatches ~ Tom Ford Stroked Blush Highlighter Duo Christmas 2014

Tom Ford Stroked Blush Highlighter Duo Christmas 2014


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.

Swatches ~ Mac The Simpson Collection Photos & Swatches

Mac The Simpson Collection Photos & Swatches

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.

Swatches ~ Mac Proenza Schouler Ombre Blushes

 Mac Proenza Schouler Ombre Blushes

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.

Swatches ~ Nars Pierre Hardy Blush in Rotonde

Nars Pierre Hardy Blush in Rotonde
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.

Beauty ~ My Beloved Rock and Republic Blush in Lust Returns!

Rock & Republic Blush in Lust
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.

Swatches ~ Hot Nights Blush from Mac Temperature Rising Collection

mac hot nights powder blush

Hot Nights is a very pink rosey blush that might be the perfect color for summer.  This blush is heavy pigmented and a little goes a very long way. I added a few links to some other blushes I reviewed for comparisons.

Swatches ~ Mac Fiery Impact Extra Dimension Blush

Mac Fiery Impact Extra Dimension Blush

This is the other blush I purchased from the Mac Extra Dimension Collection.  This blush shows up on me a lot more than the Blazing Haute reviewed. I really like this blush and I actually wore it with Mac's Center of the Universe MSF, it was such a pretty combination!

Swatches ~ Mac Blazing Haute Extra Dimension Blush

Mac Blazing Haute Extra Dimension Blush

This is the first of two blushes that I purchased from the Mac's In Extra Dimension collection.  When I purchased it I wasn't sure if I would wear it as a highlighter or as blush. I was searching for a rose color highlighter that would actually look rose on my complexion and I was pretty sure this blush might do the trick.  I'm on the fence with the results.  The swatch looked a little gold on my arm but when I applied it to my cheeks, it looked slightly rose in color.

Swatches ~ Nars Seduction Blush and Comparisons

Nars Seduction Blush and Comparisons

Nars Seduction Blush is so beautiful and this is one of the rare shades that really compliment women of color. It's a deep berry color that applies matte and is very pigmented. A light hand is all you need when applying this blush.  It's also beautiful as an eyeshadow a well.

Swatches ~ Wicked Blush by Tom Ford

Tom Ford Blush Wicked

I bought myself several items for Xmas that i've been lusting for and this is the first one. This is the second Tom Ford blush that I own, I also have Flush which I reviewed here. So I purchased the Wicked Blush by Tom Ford and i'm in love with it. It's a very beautiful matte pink that's not too bright but very pigmented. I'm in love with this one but there still one TF blush i'm lusting for and that's Savage which will hopefully be a Valentine's gift from my husband.
