My Make Up Collection: Blushes

A while ago I started a new series here on Born to Buy, My Make Up Collection. I decided that I'd share a part of my make up collection with you each week until, well, you've seen it all. This series is not about reviewing products because but I'll be sure to link reviews if they've been written. 
I'm sure this goes without saying, but please don't take this series of posts as bragging. That it not my intention at all. 

Also, before I continue, I'd like to apologise for the fact that the swatches aren't that vibrant! All of the powder blushes are more pigmented than they seem. I'm not sure why they didn't photograph well.
Benefit Posie Tint | Benefit BeneTint | Essence Rebels Lip & Cheek Pot in #01 Peach Punk* | NP Set Cruise Blush in Atlantic | Aveda Petal Essence Cheek Tint in Phlox | NP Set Cruise Blush in Pacific | DB Lip & Cheek Rouge in Irresistible* | MAC Casual Colour in Keep it Loose
This is my cream and liquid blush collection. I find myself using these more in the cooler months of the years as I feel like they're going to 'melt off' due the heat. My favourite in the collection is definitely my MAC Casual Colour. I wish I'd picked up more from the collection. I love it.
MAC Well Dressed Powder | NARS Deep Throat | Essence Cherry Blossom Girl | NARS Orgasm | MAC Born to Love 

These are my most used powder blushes. I find them all to be beautiful products and so versatile. As I said, however, they're a lot more pigmented than they appear.
Adorn Mineral Cosmetics Barely Blushing | Bellapierre Mineral Blush in Desert Rose* | BYS Mineral Naturale Blush in Gentle Pink | Bellapierre Mineral Blush in Peony* | BareMinerals Blush in Rarest Rose

I rarely use these blushes, purely because they make such a mess. In saying that, however, they have great colour payoff so I definitely should! I might start pulling them out again.
Benefit Dandelion sample | elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder | Revlon A Floral Affair #460 Hushed Blush | BYS #04 Candyfloss 

I rarely use these blushes. Some I don't like, some I forget about and others are specific to certain looks.

I don't have as many blushes as you may expect, but I definitely have enough. My go to blushes are NARS Orgasm, MAC Casual Colour in Keep it Loose, MAC Born to Love and Essence Cherry Blossom Girl powder blush. 

I know I haven't reviewed many of the products featured above. If you would like to see a review of a product that hasn't been linked, please comment below. I'd be happy to add it to my list of products to review!

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them? Not that I need to buy any more blush, but do you use any you'd recommend? 

As I said, my make up collection is going to be a weekly (I hope but they may be more than a week apart) series - Next up? Eye Primers and Mascara!

* Indicates products that were provided for review. These products have remained in my collection, meaning that I have not yet posted about them or I genuinely like them or both.
Always look your best,
Sophie
