does anybody know of a blush that is pink with blue shimmer/sp
I enjoy using MAC's stars n rockets on my cheeks, it's a beautiful pinky color with blue sparkles and it makes the cheeks just glow but since it's an eyeshadow, the pot is small so it's not very convenient and i tend to go through it quickly! It's getting quite pricey! does anybody know of a blush similar to it?

I've never heard of a blush with blue shimmer. But since it sounds like you're looking for a pink blush that has shimmer, will give your cheeks a nice glow, and will give you a lot of product for your money, I recommend Benefit Cosmetics "Bella Bamba." (Sephora Product Page) "Bella Bamba" is a watermelon-pink blush laced with shimmering gold undertones. This boxed blush, which gives you enough product to last for at least a year, amplifies cheekbones and creates the illusion of sculpted features for a gorgeous 3D effect. Your face will look instantly brighter with just a quick swipe of this ultra-flattering color on the cheeks. It's a bit expensive, but the shimmering glow it gives me is unlike any other blush I've ever used, and since you get a lot product for your money, I'd say it's well worth it.
I hope this helps you!
I have never seen a blush with blue sparkle either, but I think you could make your own. Could you use a pink blush and then do a very light overlay with sparkle shadow? Urban Decay Stardust shadow is very sparkly and the color Atmosphere is a turquoise sparkle. Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hypershadow Memento is a dark lapis blue with blue micro glitter. Just use a really fluffy brush to pick up the shadow and tap most of it off before you start and you should be able to apply the barest hint of sparkle over your pink blush. (I just tried this with a glittery shadow of my own and it is relatively easy to do).
Hope this helps!
Clinique does one called pink love which I think comes close but some other options may include
Make Up forever's Candy Pink 85

I don't know of another blush that is pink with blue shimmer, but I think that you could create your own pink blush with a blue shimmer effect in a more cost effective way by doing the following:
1) First of all, buy a pink loose powder blush such as BE's bareMinerals All-Over Face Color in Rose Radiance, which you can find here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P61
2) Then mix in Make Up For Ever's Diamond Powder in Baby Blue 12 which you can find here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P86
3) Make Up For Ever's Star Powder in Pastel Blue 928 which you can find here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P12
You will then have your own custom-made version of the blush that should last much longer because the blush I mentioned above is so highly pigmented that it'll only take a small amount to give a great pop of color.
Hope this helps!
Have a great day!
