Re: Blush[ Edited ]
I am similar in coloring and hope that you find something nice Here are some of the products I currently use and like.
Alima Pure in Freja (Alima pure also has matte blushes this one is shimmery though).
Pure Hearts Clean Hands makes a great mineral blush in the color papaya. I really like it and you dont need a lot of the product to make a nice hint of color.
Maia Minerals makes a blush called Misty Rose. It is really subtle and pretty. Has some glitter in it but it is not too noticable.
If you aren't a fan of mineral blushes 100% Pure has some great options.
I use cranberry cheek tint when i want a little more flush.
100% Pure also has a ton of great shades for powdered blush (not mineral- it is pressed powder).
Also I like Jane Iredale pure pressed blush. It is pressed blush but the picture shows it crushed up. Not sure why ? lol.
I also use NARS in laguna for a bronzer but I notice that i get little bumps on my cheeks after using it. All of the other blushes I mentioned above have great ratings from EWG for not containing a bunch of toxins that are banned in other countries as potentially harmful (which in the US are not banned).
I would try Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Blissful. I have a similar skin tone and purchased this blush about 2 months ago. It is a gorgeous and very flattering blush that I have been reaching for everyday. I have few other tarte blushes in different shades and they are all great but Blissful is definitely my favorite.
I'm NC20 as well and agree about the 10 blush palette, I used it once! None of the colors look even remotely the same on the skin and disappears quickly. If you like peach, I like NARS Deep Throat (shimmery peach) & Torrid (shimmery coral) $29.
From MAC my fave so far is Melba $21 (matte soft coral).
With your skin tone a soft peach or pink would be nice. Since your skin is on the cooler side less warm shades would be a better option. Here are my suggestions:
Illamasqua Powder Blush
Katie Light Milky Pink
Lover - vibrant apricot
Color Theory Sculpting Blush
I think Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour blush in Blissful would look great based on your description. You could also look at the Nars Foreplay palette- it comes with 4 shades and Nars is known for their amazing blushes. The Too Faced Sweetheart blush is also really pretty!
