I'm probably not a very good blush fiend. I think most of mine are limited edition, which makes me hesitant about sharing my picks or seasonal go-tos.
I guess that didn't stop me from actually picking an LE blush, but you know, it at least gave me some pause. And I did think of some permanent blushes that were similar, so hey - I'm looking out for you.
|Tarte Stellar*, the RT blush brush, and my Charlie Brown hoodie.|
I have to preface this by saying that I don't love Tarte's blushes. They're ok, but they're not the end-all of blushes for me. I actually sold off the one that I owned. But I got Stellar (part of last year's Christmas set) from a friend, and it's not half bad. It's shimmery, but the shimmers are subtle, and I use a highlighter anyway, so it doesn't much matter. On me, it's a browny rosey something, not orange and actually perfect for subtle contouring. You know, something about cheekbones.
|The silver specks look really chunky here, and they kind of are, but they don't show up as chunks of tinsel on cheeks. Thank goodness. Why does everyone seem to think that we only want sparkle-central blush?|
|Wearing Stellar as a "contour" shade. In quotes because my contouring skills are nonexistent. Also, sorry, I still have some dark-haired photos kicking around. Stellar still works with my new hair color, but it's a little different.|
