Hey guys!

Check out this newly launched site by a friend! She got sick of having all her Sephora Beauty Insider points pile up. It’s a great way to keep track of what’s being offered as samples at the moment!

Let her know what you think!


Benefit’s Coralista Blush

24 May

I just received a sample of Benefit’s Coralista Blush & am absolutely in love with it! Sephora describes it as a coral pink sheen. I personally think it has more pink tones than coral tones.

Lots of people compare this to Nars Orgasm, but I think Coralista is a bit more muted than Orgasm. Definitely great for everyday wear! It’s also very, very finely milled which lets the blush go on more naturally. I prefer blushes that aren’t too overpowering for daytime wear.

Since it’s nighttime and I can’t get a picture of a good swatch in, here is a photo from another fabulous blogger out there!


MakeupGeek even listed it as one of her favorite blushes in this post here.

This blush retails for $28 in its full size. If you’re looking for a new color to try out for the summer, I highly recommend this!

Nars Sin Blush

15 Apr

My recent favorite purchase is this Nars Blush in Sin. I am absolutely in love with it! It’s described on the website as Berry with Gold Shimmer, and has a light subtle purple hue to it. A perfect alternative for those who don’t want bright red/coral cheeks all the time. I think it’s perfect for going out, and the berry color of it actually helps contour your cheeks a bit. I highly encourage everyone to try out this color! One of the most flattering blushes I’ve laid my hands (or cheeks ;-D) on!

I also tried Oasis the last time I was at Nordstrom, which is basically just a much more shimmery version of Sin. I figure you can always add shimmer to your colors but you can’t remove it! I opted to purchase Sin instead =). Here are descriptions of the other Nars blush colors.

These blushes retail for $27 each. Orgasm is by far their most popular shade. Which Nars blushes do you swear by? Would love to hear!
