Loving Liquid Blush

September 07, 2020 in


Happy LBD, Mes Amies!

Are you all enjoying this long weekend? 

Last weekend was my birthday. My dear friend, Amy gave me a Sephora Gift Card (she knows me!)

I used this gift card to restock my liquid blush.

For years and years, I used powder blush, I mean who hasn't? However, on an impromptu trip to Sephora last fall, I saw that they had "Orgasm" blush in liquid form. I bought it and was immediately hooked. 

Liquid blushes might be labeled as gel, tint, creams or stains. All in all though, they are all pretty similar. They are pigments in a non powder form. If you have skin that is more on the oily side, a tint will be your best bet. They are water based and have much greater staying power than powder blushes.

If your skin runs dry, or mature, opt for a cream formula

Okay, so you might be saying "Why do I need a liquid blush?"  I'm so glad you asked, there are many benefits.

  • It looks far more natural. It looks much more as if this is your natural coloring and not a cosmetic.
  • It is not aging in the way that powder blush can be. Each layer of powder products that you apply to your face makes your overall look appear cakey.
  • Liquid blush has far more staying powder than its powdered counterpart.

When applying liquid blush, keep the following points in mind.

  • Use a very small amount. A little goes a very long way. You can always add more, but too much will make you look like you should have a red nose and a lapel flower that squirts water.
  • Use your favorite blush brush for application. Sure, you can use your fingers. Personally, I find that this gives a streaky application though. a blush brush makes for a far better blending.

Okay, so you want to try this type of blush. There are so many different ones to choose from. Below are a few that I have p;personally tried and would recommend.

Have you tried non-powder based blush? What do you think?
