The French Kiss Blush $22
I have been eyeing this blush online for a while and when I saw it in person I knew I wanted to give it a try. I’m really glad I did because it’s a new favorite! It’s described as a watermelon pink and I must say it looks good enough to eat on my cheeks. Such a great lively happy shade that lasts all day into the night like all Bare Minerals products do.
French Kiss is beautiful agains the skin. It brightens my whole face up. Click on a picture if you’d like to blow it up!
This is a buildable color. You can control how vibrant it is so don’t be scared that this will be to much for you. I have my eye on another Ready blush shade…I see The Tease (raspberry sorbet color) in my future.
Let me know if you have tried a Ready blush. There are ten shades (I think) and they have something for every skin tone.
Blush lover that I am I get so excited trying new brands of blush and colors. I’ll put ANYTHING on my cheeks (no jokes please) because I love trying out blush colors so much. The thing I never expected is a blush stain. It’s a totally new idea in a powder form and it LASTS like no other. All darn day and into the night!
I love it when a company gives us a new take on a popular staple like blush.
Pretty in Peony and Magical in Mauve ($24, /.136 oz.’s)
I think blush is so important because it makes us all look way more lively than we do without it. I look kind of dead in the face without blush. I need some color! Take a look at the swatches of Pretty in Peony and Magical in Mauve on my skin.
Look at the sexy shimmer especially in Pretty in Peony. Remember to click on a picture if you’d like to see it bigger!

As if that wasn’t enough let me briefly tell you about THE BRUSH. The French Boutique Blush Brush is the softest blush brush that I have. It’s light as air and makes applying blush so easy! I love the angled shape. I’m trying to be light-hearted here but I’ll tell you right now you’d have to pry this out of my cold dead hand basically to get it away from me. Because I constantly use this brush every day now. I love it.
I first came across It Cosmetics on QVC. You can take a look at all their products there (check out the video presentations of products you are interested in) or on www.itcosmetics.com. I have two other posts you can take a look at also. The Pretty in Amber Eye Trio is one of my favorites as well as the Vitality Lip Flush Trio which is about as amazing on my lips as these two blushes are on my cheeks! Vitality is a good word to use for these products because they all just make my face full of complementary color and brighter. I like that!
I’ve been hearing about the quality and incredible value on La Femme blushes for a few years now on YouTube. I finally ordered some last month when they had an Independence Day discount on Makeup Mania (17.76% off how cute!) and I am so excited about the pigmentation and price! These can be ordered individually to create your own palette like I did or in a self contained package ($3 each) if you’d just like one.
I ordered from Makeup Mania (www.makeupmania.com) which worked out really well. I went for a palette since the colors were $2.50 each (they just had a price increase, they are $2.87 each now) and I paid for an empty palette (it’s $14 currently) and started picking colors.
Here’s what I ended up with and some quick swatches. Remember that you can click on a picture to make it bigger!

These are an amazing deal. I love the colors that I got and the pigmentation is out of this world! I ordered mattes mostly which I love. All the shades in the palette last all day and look fantastic. I highly recommend checking these out and giving La Femme blush a try. I still can’t believe how inexpensive and good these shades are! There are a BILLION different shades to choose from on the website and I got my order in about ten days.
