Raging Red Blush!!!

Ever since January when latinadiva posted a photo of NARS Exhibit A, I've been really curious about raging red blushes!  If you read Victorian novels a lot of the characters have "high spots of colors on her cheeks" and that's what I love using super bright pigmented blushes for. 

 

Anyone else love super bright blushes?

No need to cry :smileyhappy: go onto the sleek website and sign up for their emails! They occasionally have free U.S. shipping! I've heard its a dupe for Exhibit A ( I wouldn't know) and its cheaper, while you're over there go ahead and pick up some of their shadows! They're amazing!!!

OH MY GOD, Exhibit A is amazing, I love it love it love it.

 

It is amazing for bright, bold cheeks, but I love it for everyday too. I tap a tiny bit across my cheekbones and then get a big fluffy brush and blend like crazy. You can apply it as light and sheer as you like this way or build it up to whatever level you want! It was my present to myself when I picked up my shiny Rouge card, because I thought it was fitting, haha.

I have never tried an Orange Blush! but for some reason the past 3 weeks i have been obsessed with orange products! I bought 3 orange lippies! I know summer is almost over but, i think i want to try one! soon! lol

drrragon

Re: Raging Red Blush!!!

oh yeah I went crazy with the orange/corals this spring, at least in terms of lippies.  I HAD to try the Maybelline Color Sensationals in Vibrant Mandarin and Shocking Coral among others!  It's a fun way to brighten up a look!

Re: Raging Red Blush!!!

one of the things i bought was from the Marc Jacob's line! It's my baby right now! <33 I went to 2 sephora stores looking for it! because the first store didn't have it in stock! But i find myself only wearing that color lip with a navy blue shirt! i dont know what else could compliment that orange!

haha yeah it's hard to find the right colors to match bright orange LOL!    was it a gel lipstick?  I've been so curious about those!  how do you like it?

JenBlush

Re: Raging Red Blush!!!

Well, he calls it Lip Vinyl, not sure about the gel lipstick, but maybe? haha! it is like a lipstick in the sense that it is VERY pigmented. 

I love the color, but it has some kind of mint feeling.. like if you were chewing gum and u put it on ur lips and then took it off. yea, that's the only way i know how to explain it!

Re: Raging Red Blush!!!

JenBlush

Re: Raging Red Blush!!!

I know!!! i think i might be adding two or three more to the collection sometime soon! <3 They are lovely! 

But yes, Orange is one of those colors that I am not too sure what to wear it with! :\ and i wish i could wear it more often! 

But... theres only so many navy blue shirts i can wear

Re: Raging Red Blush!!!

Oh that orange is so pretty. My absolute favorite summer combination is orange lips with mint colored shirt.

(oh this reminded me I still have to hunt for a white shirt with studded collar. Been wanting one since forever).

 

Fall is the season of orange, so forest green or dark brown works well.

 

I like wearing red or white in the winter. I think it was last yr where the trend was color blocking, so you can pair orange lips with red, white OR yellow for a bold look.

 

Personally I actually like blue with fuschia/pink better than orange. I think the only colors you might not want to pair with orange are purple, sky blue or kelly green cuz they are too bright, or black cuz it's a bit halloween. Basically you want at most one other color, either a dark or pastel.
