Two blushers that I can't get enough of

It's no big surprise that most of my blog posts are influenced by some of my favorite bloggers (listed on the right hand side of my blog- those are just a few, I have many faves!). I saw Claire's (at beauty&lechic) post earlier about Benefits Coralista and thought it looked beautiful on her. (Not a difficult job- Claire is stunning!). I don't personally own any Benefit blushes but her swatch reminded me of the much loved Milani Luminoso, which is often said to be a dupe of NARS Orgasm. Either one may be a dupe (depending on ones skin tone perhaps?) but Luminoso is undoubtedly one of my most used blushers and I adore it! It's one of those blushers that is beautiful and suitable for all skin tones. I thought it'd be too light and chalky for my skin but it's quite nice and adds that sheen that I love for summer! I definitely recommend this one to all!

My next love is Hard Candy's bombshell baked bronzer. I'm dating myself but does anyone else remember when Hard Candy was sold in Nordstoms!? No- just me? Maybe, but if I'm not mistaken I think it was sold there in the 90's. Ah, regardless I spotted this bronzer while searching for a dupe for MAC Warm Soul mineralized powder. I've had my eyes on Warm Soul forevah! But at $30 bucks, em, no can do. Again as I don't own Warm Soul I can't vouch for the "dupeness" of it but it's a gorgeous bronzer on it's own! I swatched Luminoso (heavy swatch to show up) and Bombshell was just one swipe!
I'll let the pictures show how truly beautiful they both are!

  2. Nice picks! I have been putting off my review of the Milani Baked Blushes for MONTHS now (because I always get more excited about other products and push back reviews :P). I have Luminoso and from what I've seen, it's beautiful! I did own Warm Soul but ended up giving that one away...I just never wore it for some reason even though I LOVED it when I first got it

  3. Thanks Becca! I agree- so much makeup, so little time, ha! I've had luminoso for a while now but am so happy I gave into the hype and bought it! And hard candy, well their baked bronzers and blushers are great for the price! As much as I live MAC I really have to watch my $!

  4. Ooo I like these. I always see them at Walmart but pass them out. The one is similar to warm soul as I own that color by MAC. How much do they run for?? Following you back too btw :)

  5. Hi Carly- glad to hear it looks like Warm Soul! I'd def recommend this- it was $7! I really like Hard Candy and am glad Walmart carries the brand.

    Thanks for following back!
