#25 shopping my stash - blushers

I blogged last week about the foundations I want to use up before allowing myself to buy any more. So I thought I'd show you today the blushers I want to finish!

In 2010 when I blogged about my make up storage, I only had five blushers. It's now gone up to 19 and looking at the top photo, that top row at the start looks pretty identical to me. The only ones I usually wear all the time are the two Illamasqua cream blushers I own in Rude and Promise. I honestly feel like I could lose my entire blush collection - well, maybe keeping MAC Movie Star Red as well - and be fine with just those to use. I barely touch the rest of the collection now I own the cream blushes. 

The products I really want to use up though are the 6 pictured on the second picture. Maybelline Dream Mousse and Pure Blush Mineral, The Body Shop Cool Dusk, Maxfactor Miracle Blush and the two Bene/Posie Tint samples that came free with a magazine not too long ago. 

I can't say I'm as enthusiastic about using these up as I am with using the foundations up, I'm stuck in a little blush rut I guess using the same couple over and over and when I'm in that mindset nothing else comes close to looking nice! 

Gosh I had such  a late night last night that I'm practically typing this with my eyes closed, definitely hitting t he sack once this post has been published! 

Can't believe a month ago today was Christmas Day!! I miss Christmas :( 



  1. I totally know what you mean, I think I have about the same amount of blushers as you and I probably use 4 on a regular basis! Can I ask what the 2 pink Illamasqua blushers are, they look gorge! I always think Rude looks amazing, but it's never suited me :(

  2. Blush pictures are like porn to me I swear lol. I am dying to try some Illamasqua cream blushes as they are raved again and again :).

  3. Wow, such an amazing collection! Good luck with using up the ones you've picked, I find it takes me forever to finish a blusher as I have so many that I alternate between! x

  4. Nice collection you got going there! I seem to have become a blusher fanatic without even realising it - have way too many now. xxx

  5. I am the same! I had hardly any blushers when I started, and now I have SO many!! They take ages too use up too so good luck! haha XO
