Yep, I know. How much can a girl talk about one line of blush? I'm apologizing in advance, 'cuz it's about to get gushy here. Since I now have 5 of the Laura Geller Blush-n-Brightens I thought it would be the perfect time to do a little round-up of my thoughts on the shades in my collection. Overall they're long lasting, highly pigmented, and give the cheeks a bit of sheen. All of the shades make your cheeks look like "natural you with a boost". They each give off a gorgeous healthy glow and are really flattering.
Boysenberry // the pink one
One of the newest in my collection, Boysenberry is the most pink and least shimmery of the bunch. It's considered a matte on their website, but when applied, it still has a bit of an understated glow. The peachy-pink tone is a good one if you're looking for a girly and bright cheek. Admittedly I reach for this one the least out of the group, but I still give it a thumbs-up.
Tropic Hues // the one that goes with everything
Where to begin...Tropic Hues is the faintest, but most used one of them all. The shade is shimmery yet sheer and gives the cheeks a light wash of color and glow. It's probably reached for most often because it goes with any makeup look since it's so neutral, but it still gives a light flush of color to the face.
Pink Grapefruit // the one that looks good on everyone
I won't hammer on too much about this, since I've already done a full review (here). Pink Grapefruit is that blush shade that I use when I'm looking for a boost. I love the mauve mixed with the shimmery pink and the glowy-warmth that it gives to my face. The color is more of a medium tone, so it would be really beautiful on many different skin tones.
Golden Apricot // the one for the peach blush lover
Out of all the shades I have, Golden Apricot just screams summer to me, The peach-heavy color, sprinkled with a hint of gold is perfect if you're looking for that golden goddess look. (Who isn't?) It has just enough pink laced in it to make it nicely balanced, too, so it's not overpoweringly peach.
Sunswept // the one to give you a slight tan
The color that Sunswept gives to your cheeks is a unique one in my blush collection. It's almost a hybrid of a blush and bronzer. This one also has a balanced combination of peach and pink, but it's the level of bronze throughout it that makes it stand out. I swear, every time I wear this and look in the mirror I instantly notice that I look more tan than I normally do. The only downside is that if you're more pale you'll definitely have to add some bronzer around your face to make look more even and natural.
Have you ever tried the Laura Geller blushes before? If you've tried Roseberry or Pink Buttercream, let me know you're thoughts and if I need to pick them up to round out the collection!
I hope you all had a great weekend! For the 4th of July we didn't do anything special. The Mr and I watched fireworks on Thursday night, so on Saturday we did a little shopping (of course!) and had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. On Sunday we went kayaking, which I'm sure my arms will be thanking me for all week. I think we're going to go out again on Monday, but to a different creek. We thankfully live in an area that's full of places to go boating, jet skiiing, kayaking, canoeing - you name it- so it's about time we got around to picking up some kayaks. It was actually really fun, but definitely a workout- especially for someone as out of shape as me. I'm on vacation all week and I'm really looking forward to relaxing a bit. Have a great week everyone!
