Three of a kind – Radiant blushes
The last couple of years have seen an increase in more advanced formulas of makeup and what was once quite a rarity is now quite easy to find across both the department stores and drugstore.
One such item which has become a lot more attainable of late are the radiant blushes, veined with highlighting pigments to add a little extra oomph to your complexion. Here are three radiant blushes that are readily available at different price points.
Hourglass was one of the first to combine rich pigmented highlighter in the same pan as a complimentary blush in the much hyped Ambient lighting blushes ( $46) They contain almost equal parts of blush and highlighter which results in a beautifully rich glow result on the cheeks or wherever you place them. Available in 7 shades from Mecca in Australia they’re kind of pricey but lovely and smooth.
Max Factor Creme Puff blush ($21.95) was released earlier this year and has become a bit of a hit. The little pans are marbled with veining of luminous powder amongst a pretty blush (although the one I own has minimal marbling on the surface). They’re mid priced and although the pans are small the satin to shimmery finish these give make them well worth the money.
Finally the newest and most affordable of the bunch is the Models Prefer soft touch Mineral blush. These blushes contain veining of the Soft touch mineral powders (said to be an alternative to the Hourglass ambient powders) At $12.99 they’re a nice product which contain lots of glimmery highlighter. For me this one was a little too light as the blush to highlighter ratio was a little low but this might change as the pan wears down (the same thing happened for me with the hourglass product)
