Blusherful

16 Nov

Usually with makeup palettes you have only eyeshadows, or you have a mix of mediums, or maybe even just lip colors. You rarely see just a blush palette. Blush palettes have been coming out of the woodworks lately and we might have bought one or two, and by might, I mean we did.

Laura Gellar Baby Cakes Blush Palette ($39.75, ulta.com): In this palette you get four good sized baked blushes in a variety of colors. You have shimmers and mattes to help you achieve any look you are going for. Red has this palette and really likes it. It is perfect for traveling.

Nars Danmari All About Cheeks Palette ($65, sephora.com): Before you fall out of your seat because of the price of this palette just know that a typical Nars blush is $27. If there are several colors you are going to try, you’ll shell out close to that much money just trying two blushes. Also, Nars blushes are AH-mazing. They are SO pigmented and they wear nicely all day. You better believe that we Glimmer Shimmer girls have this palette.  We both have had our eyes on Sin and Desire for quite a while and this gave us the perfect opportunity to try them out.

Benefit’s POWda WOWza ($28, sephora.com): This palette consists of CORALista and Bella Bomba blushes as well as Hoola bronzer. We Glimmer Shimmer girls have been wanting to try these blushes and bronzer for quite a while and now we’re not going to be able to resist. Sephora just needs to get it back in stock already, sheesh.

Tell us, is there a blush or bronzer that you have been dying to try?

    What is the shelf life of makeup products? I like trying new things but worry about how long I can keep all the different products.

      Everyone seems to think different about this. Personally, I think powder products are fine for years. Mascara I usually get rid of after three or four months. Lip or cream products I get rid of if they start to smell weird, looked dried up or feel different. I did find this set of guidelines:

      Oil-free foundation: 1 year
      Cream or compact foundation: 18 months
      Concealer: 12-18 months
      Powder: 2 years
      Blush and bronzer: 2 years
      Cream blush: 12-18 months
      Powder eyeshadow: 2 years
      Cream eyeshadow: 12-18 months
      Eyeliner: 2 years
      Liquid eyeliner: 3-6 months
      Mascara: 3 months
      Lipstick: 2 years
      Lip liner: 2 years
      Lip gloss: 18-24 months
      Nail color: 1 year
      Fragrance: 2-5 years
