Luscious Blushes

Get it? Luscious Blushes... fun to say! But these are so much fun to WEAR! I received some new products in the mail recently from the folks at Bee Luscious... and these blushes take the cake! To be clear, these are referred to as Baked Mineralized Finishing Powder on the Bee Luscious website... but for the shades that I've tried, one is without a doubt a blush, and the other is more of a blush/highlight. You wouldn't want to dust these all over your face to finish the look- because they contain so much pigmentation, and in some cases, sparkle. However I think they're fantastic as a blush. And blush is such a great way to spruce up your look, and really add radiance to your face quickly & easily.

I know... they're stunning. The one on the left is called Apricot Swirl. In the picture below, I used this as a highlight on top of my cheekbones. It's a gorgeous golden peach... reminds me of MAC's Rubenesque paint pot in powder form. This one has soft shimmer, but no actual particles of glitter. I think it's just as lovely on as it looks in the packaging. (Plus these come packaged with nice mirrors!)


Berry Swirl is my must-have of the two. It's rare to find a gorgeous, luminous blush in a pretty berry shade. It's a gorgeous deep rose-berry shade laced with gold that gives the blush a subtle sparkle (there are tiny glitter-like flecks in this, but as you can see in the picture, it's nothing obvious). I applied this to the outer apple of my cheek (not in close to my nose so I don't appear to have redness there), and while it works on my medium skintone, I think deep skintones would look lovely with this, and even applied sparingly on light skin- it would really be nice. You barely have to tap your brush into the product- it's that pigmented.

I like using Berry Swirl as the blush and Apricot Swirl as the highlight because they both have a golden undertone that makes the two look flawless together. I know I often say- don't incorporate too much shimmer if you don't want pores and fine lines to stand out. But if you have a little shimmer in your blush (on top of a matte foundation & powder), you will really look fresh. What better way to start off Spring? Now the price tag on the Bee Luscious website for these is rather high- $39.95 each. But keep in mind- there's a 35% discount on all orders, which really makes the product more doable. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, and have a wonderful day!

  8. Are these private label products too, or actually produced by Bee Luscious? I was quite annoyed when I saw that you can buy their $40 rose blushes for $10 at Morgana Minerals.

  13. I look at your vids al the time on youtube. I get the impression that you are truely excited about makeup and try to help your subscibers as much as possibe. I live in Trinidad and Tobago so many of the brands especially high end ones are not available. The ones that are available are MAC, Clinique, Mary Kay, Estee Lauder and Elizabeth Arden to a limited capacity.
    However many of your drug store and dollar brands are available to us here. I have been an avid collector of sorts of Milani and NYX.
    I am happy with my puchase of the milani Liquif'eye eye pencil in black. I hold your opinion in very high regard and I sought after it. It really is a great pencil.
    I also enjoy your tutorials. I appreciate your fondness for bargain brands which is mostly what is available to me as well as it is what I can afford.
    I just want to say thanks for sharing your passion for make up and life in general and keep up the good work!
