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!
