Two favorite blushes at the moment

I actually don't wear blush much these days, as it seems to be getting hotter and hotter here (30°C) and my face just gets flushed so easily, but when I do, which is usually when I feel more like dressing up, I find myself ignoring my other blushes for these two: Benefit Coralista and Fyrinnae Glow Blush in Enchant.



Benefit Coralista


Coralista is a warm coral pink with a slight sheen to it, and compared to the swatch below, on my cheeks it turns into a warmer shade after a while. It's very close to the actual color of my cheeks when they're naturally flushed. Very pretty and very nice for this weather.

Fyrinnae Enchant


Fyrinnae Glow blush in Enchant looks almost neon in the pot- a bright pink-orange color. Looks scarily bright, but once applied looks as Fyrinnae describes it, which is a soft peach with a bit of pink shimmer. A soft, light pink peach, quite subtle. The finish gives a flattering, glowy touch of color to my face. Perks up my mood!

Swatches:


Top- Fyrinnae Enchant (blended out a bit) , Bottom - Benefit Coralista. Taken under natural light.


In same order, photographed with flash.

Love them both and will most probably continue to wear them exclusively, though I am craving for more blushes from both brands. Despite the humidity, I find both blushes to be longlasting too.

I'm torn between Benefit Coralista and Nars Blush in Orgasm ^_^. Coralista looks so pretty in the swatch but I'm afraid it might not show on my face ^_^

Ida said...

Ems, I think it will. :) On my face it looks more like the 2nd swatch photo, but warmer! I want to try Orgasm too but when I swatched it at the counter it seemed too shimmery for me.

Ida, glad to know that Coralista is one of your fave blushes at the moment. So pretty! :P

The coralista looks so pretty...do you think it will look good on me too? ^_^

Ida said...

Pammy, yes, pretty indeed. Is it still one of your faves?

Gale, yes I do think the color will look good on you. :)

Both are SO pretty! They probably look great together too. I've been dying to try Coralista, btw. Jealous! =)

i have about 4 blushes/brighteners (whatever they are called by koreans, kkkk) but i just don't know how to properly apply them. i ended up buying 2 more because the SAs applied them so well. i'm just using the brightener as an overall eyeshadow, haha... i wish i could have a coralista too... more and more korean cosmetic companies here are imitating the packaging but it would be nice to really have a real coralista...

Ida said...

Jehan, I do see a lot of those online- the ones that look like blushes but go on like highlighters? Those look cute. I think the Benefit website ships to Korea. So you can order your Coralista that way. :)

Ida said...

Hi Marce! Trying them together's a good idea. I'll do that. :)

Chelle said...

I'm loving your Coralista! <3 it looks gorgeous!!

Those blushes look so pretty. I agree, Fyrinnae Enchan looks scarily neon. I was like, "What?! This bright neon red orange blush is her favorite?". LOL. Until I read the rest of the entry. I thought it would look too bright on the cheeks but I was wrong.

Lots of love,

Ida said...

LOL. Imagine, neon cheeks! Hehe :D In actual, on the cheeks, it looks much, much more subtle :)

Ida said...

Chelle, thanks! You should try it :)
