I haven't done a roundup post in a while, and since I am somewhat of a blush maniac (read: addict) I thought this would be a useful post for you girls. I don't stock up on luxury makeup often, but when I do it's something that I know will be a holy grail product.
Today I have blushes by Nars, Hourglass and Topshop. Topshop isn't high end per say, but it's not drugstore either and it's a gorgeous colour so I wanted to include it.
Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion, Topshop Good Girl Blush and Nars Luster Blush.
Here are some close ups of the shades, quite different but you can tell I love my bright pinks and peaches! These are most complementary for my skin tone and I imagine they would suit almost anyone. The shade of course would look different but it definitely brightens up the face. The finishes are all quite different too, and they feature very diffused sparkles.

Topshop is the cheapest, at just £7. This is the most compact and the girliest pink shade. The sparkles are visible but not in a garish way, they just make your cheeks look more glowing. The most pigmented has to be Nars which is a holy grail brand! This is a deeper warm peach which would work as a bronzer or contouring if you have a tan. They all feature mirrors, so they are good on the go or when travelling and you need to top up. Lastly, Hourglass is a brand I'm only just venturing into but so far so good.
This shade is a pink tone with champagne highlights mixed in, so you get a beautiful glowing pink. This builds up to a brighter shade but can be very subtle just on the apples of your cheeks.
Have you tried any?
