You’ll forgive me if I’m partial to today’s blush swatches; Springsheen is one of my favorites. It’s a peach pink with gold shimmer (though I never see actual shimmer on my cheek) —Â not too pigmented, perfect for fairer skin.
What about NARS Orgasm, you ask? Orgasm is also peach-pink-with-gold, right? Orgasm is a little peachier, with a little more gold. For some, the gold shimmer is too much. For me, the extra peach makes it a little garish on my cheek. Of the NARS blushes, I prefer the pinker Deep Throat. NARS is also a more pigmented blush, and it’s easier to go overboard and add too much. I have to be careful with Deep Throat; I don’t have to think too hard about applying Springsheen.
Peachykeen is also peach-pink, but a little more beige pink than Springsheen. It has some gold sheen, but less than Springsheen.
Fleur Power is a strong, matte warm pink. Salsarose is an atomic rose red. Frankly Scarlet is comparatively warmer/less blue than Salsarose. It’s a strong rose-pink.
MAC’s potted blushes are $18.50; the pans are $15.50. To buy a pro shade, you can visit a pro store, or call 1-800-387-6707.
