“Rose Gold” Series — Part 2 (Blush)

Welcome back to Part 2 of my “Rose Gold” Makeup Series!

Without further ado…

Top Rose-Gold Blushes:

1) Nars “Orgasm”

This blush, with its peachy-pink goodness, is the epitome of rose-gold allure. This blush has achieved iconic stature in the beauty community, and it’s easy to see why. Although it does contain a sheen, it assimilates into the skin seamlessly once applied. With its dueling pink (cool) and golden (warm) tones, it is universally flattering — as are so many rose-gold products. This blush costs $30.

2) L’Oreal “Rose Gold Lift”

This beautiful cream blush is a true rose-gold. It can be applied with the fingers or with a stipple brush. More than any other shade mentioned in this post, it provides a stunning (and very flattering) highlight to the cheeks. It is not highly pigmented, but just enough to provide a natural rose gold flush on those mornings when you are struggling to get out the door! At $12, you can’t beat the price.

3) Benefit’s “Rockateur”

If I had to choose one blush to wear with every makeup look for the rest of my life, this would be it. It’s gorgeous in the pan — neutral enough to flatter any outfit or eyeshadow look, but packing an understated feminine punch. As demonstrated by this promo image released by the company, it flatters all skin tones:

I previously reviewed this blush here. It costs $28.

4) Sleek Makeup’s “Rose Gold”

“Sleek” makeup is a British cosmetics brand, widely known in beauty circles for their affordable (and incredibly pigmented) blushes. I ordered this blush from the UK a year ago, and its beauty rivals that of Nars’ “Orgasm.” It leans warm (with a prominent golden sheen) but still manages to flatter most skin tones. You can order this blush from sleekmakeup.com for $7. In other words, it’s an absolute steal!

5) Clinique’s “Precious Posy”

This is such an underrated blush! A hidden treasure at the Clinique counter. Very pretty, and more on the matte side than any blush mentioned even though it has subtle gold shimmer in the pan. Excellent lasting power as well. It costs $21 at your local Clinique counter.
