Blush, Bronzer and Highlighter / My Updated Makeup Collection

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Today I'm onto blushers, bronzers and highlighters. I'll start with bronzers.

I actually only have about 3 or 4 bronzers. My favourite is NYC's bronzer in Sunny. I love this for both warming up the face and contouring. I also have Covergirls Bronzer and I have to say I really don't like it. It isn't very pigmented and has sparkles which make it really difficult to use without making your face glittery. I find the same thing happens with one I have from Sal & Jo's.  I also keep a matte brown eyeshadow with my bronzers because I like to use it for a heavier contour. 

As for the highlighters, I have a sample size of Benefits Girl Meets Pearl and High Beam. I really like High Beam because I prefer cream based products and its a nice natural highlight. I also have Wet N Wilds Reserve Your Cabana highlighter which I probably use the most. I don't find this to be very pigmented if I use a brush to apply it but it applies great with my fingers or a flat brush. The only other highlight I have is a MAC Cream Colour Base in the shade Shell which is a nice natural, peachy highlight.

Firstly, I have two of the Bourjois Blushers in the shades 15 and 16. I think these are my favourite drugstore blushes. I also have one from Stila but I don't know the shade, this is my favourite blush- I love it. I have one from Covergirl but I don't find it to be very nice on my cheeks, I like to use it as eyeshadow though. I also have Benefits Thrrrob which I got for free with a phone. This is a really pale, natural blush with a slight sparkle. I'm not sure its sold anymore though. Onto my cream blushes, I have a Maybelline Master Glaze in the shade Pinched Pink and Benefits Cha Cha Tint. I also have MACs cream blush in the shade LadyBlush which is a lovely, natural pink. 

Other Face Powders
As well as the blushes, bronzers and highlighters, I also have three miscellaneous type products. I have Rimmels Stay Matte Powder because this is my only powder so I throw it in with this section of my collection. I also have a powder foundation by Fresh Essentials which should really go with my foundations but I like to keep it with my powder. The other thing I have is Benefits 10 which is supposed to be a bronzer/highlighter duo except min has been so smashed up that it all is blended into one shimmery, golden powder. 

This is it for this part of my makeup collection. My next post will be on Sunday
