LATM: Red blush (Sleek, Guerlain, Shiseido, Nars, Makeup Forever, Mac)

I'm currently loving bold blushes, especially red ones. I used to be afraid of them since I thought I could look clownish. However, I recently found out you can get a marvelous flushed look with it, you just have to keep it sheer. So, I decided to show you today the ones I currently own:

Now, here are heavy swatches:

From left to right:

  1. Sleek Molten
  2. Sleek Bon Fire
  3. Sleek Furnace
  4. Guerlain Red Hot (the small part)
  5. Shiseido Orchid (RD401)
  6. Nars Exhibit A
  7. Makeup Forever 99
  8. Mac Love Thing

The bolder ones are Bon Fire, Furnace and Exhibit A. I actually find Bon Fire and Exhibit A are too close, just a slightly different undertone. Exhibit A leans a little bit more orange.

The ones I find sheerer and then better to start with are Molten, Red Hot and Orchid. Especially Orchid, since it leans to pink.

MUFE 99 can also be worn as an eyeshadow while Love Thing is a nice red for fall.

My personal favorites are Bon Fire and Exhibit A, yes the boldest. As a recommendation to use it, you need to pair it with some bronzer to avoid the clownish look.  A video by MonsiieurAlex was very helpful to me to learn how to use red blush, so I'm sharing you the link:  

Which is your favorite red blush?

... About the blogger

He sido una “beauty junkie” incluso desde antes que estuviera de moda esto de tener blog. Siempre me ha gustado el maquillaje high end (el que venden en las tiendas departamentales), y más desde que mi mamá me regaló mi primer quinteto y gloss de Dior. Varias amigas y conocidas me han pedido recomendaciones de productos, y algunas veces hasta las he maquillado. Por ello, un día decidí que debía compartir un poquito más esta afición escribiendo un blog.

I’ve been a beauty junkie before beauty blogs became that popular. I’ve always loved HE makeup, since my mom gave me as a gift my first dior quint and gloss. Many friends and acquaintances asked me for makeup recommendations and sometimes even to do their makeup. So just one day, I decided to share my thoughts and experience by writing a blog.
