Lately I've been gravitating towards neutral cream blushes and peachy nude lips for an effortless and natural look. I grabbed these four products from my vanity and everyday makeup bag and realized how similar they look swatched next to each other. Whether I'm going for a really simple look or a dramatic taupe smokey eye, these cheek and lip colors fit the bill nicely.
I've blogged about how much I like Stila's Convertible Color in Peony before and it's one of my most reached for blushes. If you're looking for a budget dupe, NYX's Stick Blush in Hibiscus comes pretty close. Hibiscus is a tad more pink and the formula is slightly more dense. Both blushes are easy to apply and blend on the cheeks and I highly recommend them both.
The next two products coincidentally share the same shade name. The Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil in Blush is new addition to my makeup stash a la the recent Birchbox CEW Prestige Box. I wore this on my cheeks and lips yesterday and was happy with the creaminess and blendability. It's the perfect my-lips-but-better nude for my skintone and lip color. My favorite lipgloss of late is the Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Blush. It's a beautiful shiny peach that makes my lips look healthy and plump and the formula is not too sticky or uncomfortable. I remember these glosses were pretty popular a few years ago but nobody seems to talk about them anymore. Laura Mercier tends to do a mini set for the holidays so I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for that this year.
Have you tried any of these products? Do you have any peachy nude favorites to recommend?
