Best in Beauty 2016: Blush

NARS Blush in Orgasm.
A pop of color is essential when achieving a beautiful glow. What better way to achieve a healthy glow then with a blush. A blush is simply a flush of color used to emphasize your cheeks. Blush was originally created an effort to redden the cheeks; however, now days it is used to simply give color and add definition. And whether you are searching for a powder finish or simply looking for a cream that melts into your skin, there are so many different types that exist. So, what are they? What are the best blushes of 2016?

1. NARS Blush - When it comes to this blush, it is one of the few that provides your face with the perfect amount of pigment. The color pay-off is incredibly outstanding. As the colors are quite extensively, I must say that the quality of this blush is one of the best ever in any face makeup product.

2. Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain - This fantastic Benefit addition is one of the best blushes in the world. Not only is it pigmented to perfection, delivering an outstanding color pay-off as a result, but it is an outstanding transitional shade. It goes on smooth and lasts modestly long. There is a reason why so many of you are obsessed with this product.

3. Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush - A blush should always feel amazing on the skin, as it should always possess enough pigmentation to produce a fine color pay-off. Although a blush can be used transitionally to add something extra to the face, it should never be muddy or chalky. This is one of those blushes.

4. Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color - Sometimes the best beauty discoveries are those multi-use gems that you never expect to be so amazing, but are. After trying an array of blush products this year, I have to admit that I love this one. This one goes on smooth and yet dries swiftly. It's both blendable and buildable, which is something to both love and appreciate.

5. Essence Mosaic Blush - After trying an array of blushes this year, I discovered this one to be one of the best. Everything from the pigmented presentation to it's ability to deliver an excellent color pay-off. Not only is this one of the best blushes of the year it is one of the most inexpensive.


The beautiful Nicole Kidman is quite busy as she is both a full-time mom and actress, but always makes time for her Benefit Benetint, as it is one of her favorite blush products. Actress Leelee Sobieski also loves this product.

The amazingly talented Adele loves NARS Blush in Orgasm, as does actresses Rooney Mara, and Rachel McAdams. In fact, in an exclusive interview with the Stylist, Mara said she takes it with her virtually everywhere.

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks absolutely loves the Make Up For Ever HD Blush.


Buzzworthy in Beauty, what is the hottest blush (or should I say hautest blush) right now? I have discovered that the Les Merveilleuses de Laduree is one of the most raved about makeup essentials of 2016. I don't know if it is because it's unique packaging or because of it's price tag, but this blush is definitely creating a lot of buzz in the beauty world. Although this blush is currently being sold in Paris, Hong Kong and different areas of Japan, you can find it online at various boutiques.
