Top Blushers of 2014

I know when I put up photos of my make up collections, there are many people who ask themselves how on earth I can afford so many products. 

I wanted to just let you know that these are beauty products I have collected over the year and it does take a great deal of organising to stick to a limited budget every month. I try and treat myself once a month, I have a strict budget and I can't afford to just blow it on beauty products, although if I could, I would. I purchase £20 worth of cosmetics a month to keep up with different looks and to try out any products I have been keen to trial. 

Not everything is expensive and I tend to keep to high street brands to stick within my budget. Otherwise, I would be constantly talking to you about Chanel, YSL and Tom Ford. I WISH! I wanted to show you that you can buy great beauty products at bargain prices. 

Here is my blusher collection and the majority of them are under £10! 


That's right, you heard correctly! If you look in the right places you can find gorgeous products at affordable prices. 
I don't just shop in one store, I like to mooch about and find blushers that I am going to want to wear. 

N07 Pop and Glow cream blush 
Stunning and easy to use, handy to keep in your handbag and easily applied. Great bargain at £9.95 in Boots, and it lasts for approximately 5 hours before having to re-apply. 

Rimmel Stay Blushed | Pop of Pink
Ultra light on the skin, only a small amount needs to be applied to achieve that summer rose cheek look. Great for keeping in your makeup bag and wonderful on holiday for the evening if you only want to add that extra glow to your cheeks. Bargain at £4.49 from Boots.

B. Glowing Shimmer Block  Just Peachy 161

At £4.99 this little beauty is perfect to bring the shimmer back into your cheeks. Purchased from Superdrug this unexpected bargain buy really lived up to expectation and presented me with a new evening look. The blend of colours are great and they offer a more natural appearance. 

Bare Minerals | Rose Pink
This is one of the more expensive blushers that I own, at £19.99 on the Bare Minerals website. This particular blush offers a healthy glow, it may be expensive in price but it's definitely worth it. It's long lasting and smooth on your skin. I would advise that you keep the small circle pad that stops your blusher powder from going everywhere in the casing. I lost mine (well I threw it away like an idiot) and now I struggle to get the right amount of powder on my brush as it just clumps together. 

Bourjois Cream Blush 02 Healthy Glow
This is one of my more recent purchases, I love Bourjois products as you're all aware. This particular blusher is a cream, it's easily applied and looks great on more natural skin. Great for work and definitely one of the more affordable blushers in my collection. £7.99

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush | Healthy Mix 

Soft and velvety feel with a gorgeous scent. It's only £7.99 which is a great price for this blusher as it's of a luxury quality and well worth the price. 

Soap & Glory | Love at first blush

This particular blusher I purchased from eBay for £3.99 brand new, however I know that this is sold in store for £11 which is a decent price for such a great quality blusher. It works really well on olive skin tones and provides that healthy look that most of us are in need of after a long week at work. 

Mac Powder Blush | Peaches

This is my most expensive blusher, worth £18 it is one of my ultimate favourites. I use this blusher less often as it's not in a large pot and I want it to last as it's rather pricey. 
I love the peaches powder but I do know they have a variety of colours to choose from, it just depends on what look and colour you prefer. Not a lot of powder is needed to get the look you want, it's long lasting and has a warm tone which compliments my skin.
