Favourite High-End Blushes for Fall 2013

I'm a huge blush fiend, and I thought I would share my favourite blushes for Fall 2013 with you! I have quite a large blush collection, but I'm always on the lookout for the next best shade. I have a nice mix of shades to share with you today, including nudes, berries, reds, pinks, and highlighters. 



Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty (reviewed here) - This blush is a beautiful red with pink undertones. This gives your cheeks what look like a natural flush of colour, and it lasts all day long. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dazzled (reviewed here) - Dazzled is a muted pink with plum undertones, and a hint of shimmer. This blush is fairly light, so it's great to pair with a smokey eye!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride (reviewed here) - This is probably my favourite blush at the moment, I just love it! Blushing Bride offers a beautiful plum colour with golden shimmer. 

MAKE UP FOR EVER Powder Blush #99* (reviewed here) - This blush is a bit redder than Tarte's Natural Beauty, and it is very pigmented. A little bit goes a long way, and I love the pop of colour that it adds to my cheeks. 

NARS Cactus Flower Cream Blush (reviewed here) - This was the first cream blush that I'd ever used, and I instantly fell in love! Cactus Flower is a gorgeous corally red with slight golden shimmer.

IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush Stain in Sweet Cheeks* (reviewed here) - Although this shade doesn't scream "Fall", I think it's a great blush to pair with a smokey eye or a vampy lip. This is a loose powder blush, but it applies very easily and isn't messy at all!

Stila Convertible Color in Peony (reviewed here) - I just have a sample of this blush, but I really love it! Peony is a pinky-nude shade that is extremely flattering. 

Benefit Bella Bamba (reviewed here) - Bella Bamba is a beautiful watermelon pink blush with golden shimmer. This blush really adds a beautiful glow to your cheeks, and you can skip the highlighter when using this blush.

NARS Luster (reviewed here) - This blush is so wearable and versatile, it won't clash with any eye look or lip colour that you wear. This shade is a bronze apricot with golden shimmers.

NARS Sin - This is a beautiful berry shade with golden shimmer. I actually really like mixing NARS' Sin and Tarte's Blushing Bride together for a lovely berry cheek!

IT Cosmetics Vitality Flush Anti-Aging Color Reviver Stain in Rose Flush* - This cream blush stick offers a sheer wash of colour, and it can be used on both your cheeks and lips. Rose Flush is a pretty dusty pink shade that is very flattering.

Lancôme Blush Highlighter in Rose Étincelle* - This is a new product from Lancome, and will be available November 1st 2013. This highlighter offers a hint of light pink, and brings a really beautiful glow to the cheeks. This powder can also be dusted on your décolleté, and it looks absolutely gorgeous!

Dior Amber Diamond (reviewed here) - This is more of a highlighter, but you could use it as a blush if you wanted to. I really like pairing this with NARS' Cactus Flower, the duo is incredible!

MAKE UP FOR EVER 12 Flash Color Case* (reviewed here) - The shades Fuchsia and Red from this palette are perfect blush shades for Fall and Winter! These work amazingly on their own, but you can also add a similar shade of powder blush over top. These are very pigmented, but they can easily be sheered out, so don't be scared!

So there you have it, my top high-end blush picks for Fall 2013! Do we have any favourite blushes in common? Do you change up your makeup up with the change of seasons? :)
