So I am thinking about starting a new series on my blog called “Makeup Collection” and breaking it down into different sections and products so that I can organize, compare and maybe declutter some products. I love watching these types of videos on Youtube, I have no idea why. I also love watching Makeup Declutters because I love seeing what people have and want to get rid of or keep and why. Anyways, since a bronzer was my most recent purchase I felt that it would be appropriate to start this series with bronzers. But, because I don’t have a lot of bronzers, I will be doing it with my blushes! If you are interested, keep on reading.
So I currently only have 3 bronzers, I would have 4 but guess what? My Physicians Formula Muru Muru Butter Bronzer cracked and decided to shatter all over my floor! Im so upset about it, and I wont be repurchasing it anytime soon because it did break and I didn’t even drop it! So in my collection I have:
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
This one is a cult favorite because it is has a matte finish, which I love to have because sometimes I’m not down to have a sheer / shimmery bronzer. I love this one because it is light and a bit ashy so that I can use it for a nice, natural bronze and I can even contour with it. I think that out of all over my bronzers, I get the most compliments / questions when I wear this one.
NARS Laguna Bronzer
This is yet another cult favorite, I believe that Laguna is the best selling bronzer that NARS has. I got this because at one point I was on a NARS kick, but I ended up loving this one because its very sheer and has a nice shimmer to it, giving me the summer glow all year round. I haven’t used this in a while, and I want to pick it up again especially since its the summer.
MAC Matte Bronze Bronzing Powder
I just picked this one up from Macys because I have been watching videos about some MAC bronzers and out of all the ones I swatched, this one was matte and not overly orange like the others. For some reason I am back on a MAC kick, I have been picking up some products from them lately, I know I shouldn’t but I am.
Top to Bottom: Hoola, Laguna & Matte Bronze
I know, bronzer swatches are useless because obviously the way the apply to your face is going to be different but I swatched them so I can see and compare their tones. Hoola is more a true soft brown, Nars is a golden sheen brown and MAC is more of a reddish brown.
This year I have been all about blushes, previously I never really wear blushes but now I can see the difference it can make and how it give my face dimension!
NARS Blush in Madly
I like the color and tone of this blush but I barely use it because all of the NARS blushes have some shimmer in it, but like I said maybe I could use it in the summer because it is a nice neutral nude pink.
MAC Blush in Melba
I got this recently because I have been on the hunt for this one, I guess it is a popular shade because I could never find it at the MAC stores and counters around me. I’m glad I got it because it is a gorgeous pinky peach shade and looks so natural on the skin.
Stellar Eclipse Cosmic Blush in Flare
I got this blush in my gratis, not sure if I will be keeping this one because I am not a huge fan of shimmery blushes, it is a pretty color though.
Kat Von D Lolita Blush/Eyeshadow
This one is a limited edition item that was released about 2 months ago? Anyway Kat made a shade of blush / eyeshadow in the shade Lolita, which is her number one seller in her lipstick line. I love this as an eyeshadow but it is a great blush and not as dark as I thought it would be, because it is buildable.
Tarte Blush in Paarty
This is the blush in the Sephora birthday gift for this year, and this shade is exclusive to Sephora. It is a pretty baby pink but it translates well on the skin, very buildable.
NARS Blush in Goulue
This mini sized blush was the VIB Rouge gift from 2016, I’m going to be honest, I dont reach for this shade because it is a bit dark for me but we will see, because I am pretty dark right now because I have been going to the beach more often.
Top to Bottom: Goulue, Madly, Paarty, Flare, Lolita & Melba.
Well those are all of the items in my bronzers and blushes stash, what are some of your bronzers / blushes in your collections? Also, is this a series that I should continue? Please let me know your thoughts on that. But thank you for reading!
