Favorite pink blush for WOC

post #1 of 140
Thread Starter 
It's so hard to find a nice pink blush for women with deeper skin tones. I tried Nars super orgasm, but it didn't show up on my skin(reference skintone NC45). So far my favorite pink blush is Nars Angelika, but I'm curious to know what my fellow WOC name as their favorite pink blush.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

have you tried MAC fleur power? It's really good and bright. I'm just a tiny bit lighter than NC45 (BB honey), but it shows up so bright on me if I'm not careful that I'm sure it'll work one or two shades up.

I also have a Maybelline blush in rose or whatver it's called, and it's good on me as a cheap portable blush. I also like my Bourjois cendre de roses brune blush. It's now a bit hard and difficult to get the blush off the dome onto the brush though, but it's such a pretty colour.

Alot of WOC love Dollymix. It's a sheertone blush.

My favorite pink blush right now would have to be Tippy it's a bright pink w/ a sheen to it. Not too over the top and great for everyday use. I also love Azalea (PRO)...that's a bright hot pigmented pink.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

I second Azalea blush if you like a brighter pink cheek. It's a gorgeous bright color in the pan, but if you apply it lightly, you'll get a beautiful, flushed cheek with a bit of a glow.

I also like Dame, which is a pale cool pink. You might want to check it out.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

I tried Nars Crazed, but it was a little too reddish for me. I just bought Tippy yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I'll have to check out Azalea and Dollymix.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

I love NYX Pinky blush. I own MAC Flirt & Tease and another one I can't remember the name of now but I'm tired of paying $18 for a blush. I'm also NC 45.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

I picked up Dollymix earlier today and I can see why it's well recommended, it should be applied lightly though but once I got the hang of it, I really like how it looks.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

Shu Uemura P Wine 25 is my favorite. It's similar to MAC Tippy but way better texture and blending.

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

I loves me some pink blush! A few favs of mine are NYX Pinky (similar Tippy but nicer imo), MAC Azalea looks scary but sooo pretty!, disc. Cheekhue in Rhythmic (darkish bright raspberry), Prestige Love Eyeshadow ( too add a pink glow over blush), and last my all time favorite pink blush is NYX Mosaic in Paradise it's a pigmented dark pink with a great glowy look someone else must try it! I'll take pics with it on just to show the awesomeness!

Re: Favorite pink blush for WOC

I'm really loving Tippy at the moment. It's such a pretty color!! NYX Pinky is also really pretty, but its matte and matte's aren't really my favorite.
