Coloured Raine x Power Collection (50% off)

Coloured Raine partnered up with the Power, a Starz television show, to release this beautiful collection.  It originally launched in September 2019, but they still have inventory that is currently 50% off.  I really think they did an excellent job with the packaging and color story.  This collection didn’t seem to get as much love as their Queen of Hearts Palette or single eyeshadows seem to get.

Top 3 Drugstore Blushes under $10

These are my personal favorite blushes from the drugstore.  In my opinion, these blushes are great, not just good for the price.

e.l.f. Primer Infused Blush in Always Rosy, $6.00:  This blush actually is listed as a bestseller on e.l.f.’s website.  They have also recently added 3 more for a total of seven shades.

The e.l.f. always rosy blush has a beautiful formula.  I don’t really think there is a noticeable difference in performance and wear time due to it being primer infused.  The texture of the powder is definitely smoother than other blushes I’ve tried, but I just don’t notice that it made a difference overall.  I found it easy to pick up with any brush and easy to blend.  I immediately felt like this reminded me of a more pink version of the Mac blush in the shade Mocha.  I feel like Mac Mocha has more red to it than this shade.

MAC Mineralize Blushes (Love Joy and Love Thing)

MAC Mineralize Blush in Love Joy and Love Thing
L to R: MAC Love Joy and Love Thing

This finish of MAC Blush isn’t talked about as much their regular powder formula but it really is one of their standout products.  I was not able to capture the shimmer particles on camera, but both of these have some shimmer to them.  Love Thing has larger gold shimmer particles that I was worried it would be a glittery mess on the face.  It turned out not to be messy at all and I didn’t feel like you could even see the particles once it was blended out.  Neither shade accentuates texture and they both give a nice sheen that suits my dry skin.

Becca Luminous Blush Swatches

Becca Luminous Blush (snapdragon, blushed copper, dahlia)
Top to Bottom: Dahlia, Blushed Copper, Snapdragon

This has to be one of the least talked about blushes these days.  I used to hear the occasional mention of them, but lately, it is all about the Cover FX blush duos or more recently cream blushes.  I typically stick to matte blushes because I often get breakouts on my cheeks, but I was pleasantly surprised that these look more satin once applied.  They do not accentuate any texture that I have and I haven’t used any other formula that looks as healthy on my dry skin.

L to R: Snapdragon, blushed copper, dahlia

While this formula is easy to blend, it is quite pigmented.  I suggest using the fluffiest blush brush you own and starting with a small amount.  Snapdragon is not as luminous or as pigmented as blushed copper and dahlia.  So if you are nervous about the pigment level but still curious to try out this formula I would give Snapdragon a try first.

The luminous blush line has a total of 6 colors and they retail for $34.00.
