Cheek Obsession du Jour 6.24.09

All of a sudden I have a blush obsession. Wierd! I used to never even look twice at blush but all of a sudden BAM...LOVE IT! I have been amassing a quite large collection of blushes, and out of all of them around 30 or so, these two are by far my favorite. I picked them both up at a CCO not too long ago. They were released with the Neo-Sci Fi collection.

On the left we have X- Rocks and on the right we have Spaced out, they are both Sheertone Shimmer Blushes by MAC. Personally, Sheertones are the absolute best in quality!

X-Rocks is a shimmery plum that works on any skin tone, it gives a very natural flush. It looks dark but I rpomise once it hits your skin it transforms into a very wearable color. Spaced Out is a very unique color, it is a peach duochrome. Spaced out gives you a peach sunkissed look. These two are definitley HG status.

What is your HG blush?


  1. I too have a blush obsession! I love X-rocks.
    My faves though right now are Cargo's Tonga, Benefit Coralista, MAC's Margin and NARs Sin.
    I don't have an HG blush or maybe I refuse to pick one -- it would be too limiting for me :-)

  2. lipstickrules- how do you like coralista? I hear so much about this one, to me it looks like a basic peach. What makes it so great? Nars blushes are FAB!

  3. I'm obsessed with blushes. They're my fave MU product.
    My faves @ the mo are NARS Lovejoy, MAC Raizin, Loverush, Springsheen & On A Mission.

  4. MAC's margin is my HG for sure! If I don't want the sparkle then I wear MAC's gingerly.

  5. Alas I put my hand up and hang my head in shame, for I too have a blush obsession!

    But being the addict I am it's not my fault! I was totally enabled by that pesky YouTube blush tag! Before that I had ONE staple go to blush!

    Now I have...Lets just say it's a lot more than one! :s

    I also love X-Rocks, it's a great everyday blush but can also be worn out on special occasions!

    Like lipstickrules I don't have an HG blush but I do have a few favourites;

    NARS Mounia - This is such a lovely colour, it looks quite intimidating in the pan but it's a lovely raspberry/plum colour and would suit all skintones! – a light hand is advised mind you!

    MAC Azalea – A bright fuchsia pink! Again this can look quite intimidating, but it gives a lovely flush of colour to the cheeks.

    NYX Copper – I found this to be a nice alternative to NARS Taj Mahal (not too orangey)! Leaves the cheeks with a nice glow! (“,)

    MAC Sweet As Cocoa – Similar to X-Rocks!

  6. @Belledujour: I thought that too initially. Thought it would be similar to Orgasm. But it's not. More peachy than pink and not overly shimmery. It gives a great glow and perfect for summer!

  7. NARS Orgasm: what hasn't been said about this one? =) I want to start a NARS collection soon...

    NYX Creme Rouge in Glow: So pigmented and a great steal!

    NYX Desert Rose: Looks similar to MAC's Desert Rose for me

    Argh, seems like everyone I know has Spaced Out except for me

  8. KillaCam- I have heard alot about Margin? Is it sparkly?

  9. Patience- I want to try Mounia too! Blush addicts UNITE!

  10. AlwaysAdira- Orgasm is great, but we have alllll heard about that one havent we? Spaced out is fantastic, if you have a CCO go get it!

  11. Margin is awesome! not sparkly at all! my two cents.

  12. Wow! I so want X-Rocks and Spaced Out blushes!!! My favorite Sheertone Shimmer blush is Dollymix! I apply is lightly on the apples of my cheeks and it looks so pretty!
