Like Willie Nelson says, I’m on the road again, and what goes great with travel?

Games! :)

I thought it might be fun to hold a few giveaways while I’m here; tonight’s features a product near and dear to my heart. MAC Blushbaby was the very first MAC blush I ever purchased (not this exact pan, of course…because that would be gross), and it ended up being the only blush I wore for years.

Before Blushbaby, I don’t think I ever wore blush at all. Then, one random day, a friendly MAC artist introduced me to this sheer, pinkish beige powder (it produces a lovely, natural-looking flush), and look at me now — hooked! Turns out Blushbaby was my gateway blush.

Warm up those fingertips because our giveaway starts in three, two, one…

A Makeup and Beauty Blog Giveaway!

One lucky lady will win…

  • One (1) pan of MAC Powder Blush in Blushbaby (a $19.50 value)

I think Blushbaby looks great on pale pretties and darker divas alike. I can’t remember ever seeing it on anyone and thinking, “Hmm…” It’s a great everyday shade that looks fantastic on a wide range of skin tones.

  4. Erin says:

    I haven’t hit pan on a blush since I’ve been “into” makeup. I switch up the blush I wear daily so it will probably take me awhile!
    Thanks for the giveaway, Karen!

    OMG, Blushbaby was my first MAC blush, too!!! It’s now my go-to item in my makeup kit – I agree, it looks great on pretty much everyone! So yes, I’ve definitely hit pan on this one. would love to get a new one! heehee :)

  11. Runeda says:

    I used to have this pre-conceived notion that blush was for old ladies. Don’t ask where that came from! However, recently I dropped by to see my lovely friend who works at MAC to ask about the semi precious collection and I told her I wanted to try blush. Lo and behold the holy angels sang! I was hooked. Definitely a staple in my makeup collection now :)

  12. Courtney says:

    I love the name of this blush. So fun!

  13. Joyce says:

    This would be my first MAC blush! It’ll probably be a gateway blush: I use one and it pushes me to use them allllll.

  44. Jillian says:

    I can’t wait to get to Korea in a week and a half and go crazy with new beauty products!

  45. I don’t know how he does it, but my boyfriend is really good at making me blush at totally random things. He’s such a prude too, so it’s nothing dirty! I used to only have one blush, up until a month or so ago.. now I’m searching for the perfect shade!

  46. Kelly says:

    Hi! I just found this website today and I just wanted to say I’m a huge fan already! And for my comment, I’m going to share a quick blush story:
    I have pale skin, and the my red undertones stand out alot. Even when I don’t wear blush, my friends say it looks like I’m wearing way too much. For this reason, I’ve never really worn blush until about a year ago. I’m just a teenager, so a lot of the time I get stuff from the drugstore. I picked up a $5 blush for the heck of it… and I’ve been in love with blushes ever since! They cover my red cheeks and only show a beautiful pink glow. Wearing blush makes me feel SO much more confident and it would rock if I could get an actually god quality blush from this contest.

  47. Karen says:

    I’m excited for fall!

  48. Rosie says:

    when I blush, my entire face turns red! haha.

  49. Missy says:

    Wow, gorgeous color! I’ve just discovered MAC and I’m in love :-)

    Never hit pan yet, but perhaps blushbaby will be the first? I’ve been loving trying other textures of blush lately such as liquid cheek tints!

  54. Andrea says:

    I’ve never hit pan on any blush yet… Maybe one day!! :P

  55. Jody says:

    I’ve never hit the pan…but sure would like to accomplish that one day. :)

  59. Pamela says:

    Happy Friday! Hope you have a fab weekend!

  60. Grace says:

    Can never have too much blush! :)

  61. Eden-Avalon says:

    xD My first first first blush was this ANCIENT revlon powder blush. I bought it at a garage sale when I was…13? I wore way too much and it was awful (some berryish shade.) Turns out it was really old – I applied it on my sister (9 at the time) and she got a really bad rash. True facts.

  62. Katherine says:

    I have kind of a sick obsession with blush and have many of the nars blushes in both powder and creme so I really haven’t had enough days and faces of makeup to hit pan on any!

  63. chibicheeks says:

    I hit pan on a couple of drugstore blushes when I was younger (and they were the only ones I had). Now I have way too many to ever hit pan!

  64. Joanne says:

    I’ve hit the pan on a blush before – only because I like to use up a blush before I buy a new one!

  65. Kim says:

    This looks a lot like one of my favorite blushes, Douceur by NARS

  66. Mikki says:

    I got my tube of EvRev yesterday, and I love it!

  67. Mary says:

    I really want to try Blushbaby! I think it just might be my gateway blush also.

  68. Jules says:

    Yep. I have hit pan on blush twice in my life. Both times it was NARS Orgasm and I was very loyal. But now I love all sorts Of blush!

  69. Samantha says:

    I loooove Blushbaby. It was my first MAC blush too!

  70. Win C. says:

    looks nice! :) ill have to check it out at mac next time

  71. evo says:

    Now that summer has FINALLY arrive, you need to come back to Vancouver :)

  72. Elle says:

    I’m getting more into blush right now, and this is such a pretty color…

  73. Janet says:

    I’ve always wanted to try this blush haven’t yet!

  74. Anna says:

    I own 4 blushes atm – I’ve hit the pan on my NARS Orgasm and MAC Pinch o’ Peach :(

    As for techniques – I love to use my 187 brush to tap and then blend blush on the apples of my cheeks. The 187 applies so well and it looks uber natural.

  75. Roxanna says:

    Another great product from MAC! Love their blushes, especially the bright pinks! This one looks really pretty :)

  76. Shannon Varty says:

    I love to smile when I put blush on! It the perfect way to get the best application.

  77. Elin says:

    Want want want!

  78. Carissa says:

    I really want this blush hehe :)

  79. Stephanie Fabian says:

    I blushed today when my boyfriend called me beautiful

  80. Tina Lane says:

    I have never hit pan on any of my blushes…mainly because I only just started getting into blushes this year. It’s weird. I’m 21 and been wearing makeup for about 6 years, but I was never into blush until today

  81. Sib says:

    So, I’m kinda permanently blushing. Everything embarrases me! But at least with blusher, I can make it look deliberate ;)

  82. Joanne says:

    I use the brush that comes with the blush. I just pat and smear if that makes sense

  83. Nina says:

    I have never worn blush except for maybe 5 times in my life. But I want to get into it. My boyfriend is the last person to make me blush

  84. Denise says:

    I had pictures taken with my favorite college basketball player yesterday. He’s younger than me but he’s so cute and tall and he smells good to boot!

  86. Allison W says:

    Blush is my favorite makeup item, just makes me feel pretty! Blushbaby is new to me but looks like a staple. Looks beautiful on you! I hit pan on Stila Lilium and a Calvin Klein cream blush that I am still trying to find a replacement for!

  87. Sannah says:

    The last time someone made me blush, I was walking on the beach with the man I really liked, and he put his arms around my waist and I was so happy!

  88. ashley says:

    pretty!

  89. Amanda says:

    I love applying blush with my 168 but it has yet to touch a pan of Blushbaby!

  90. Catherine says:

    I have yet to reach pan on any of my blushes. Yes I still continue to get more =) Thanks for the quick contest!

  91. Emily says:

    I’ve never hit the pan on a blush. Probably because I never had one that works really well for me so I tend not to wear blush much. But Blushbaby looks great! Maybe this one will work for me and I’ll make it part of my daily makeup routine…

  92. Alison says:

    I just got a really great drugstore blush the other day: Milani baked blush in Luminoso. I actually have 3 of the Milani baked blushes now, and they’re all very nice!

  93. shusheshe says:

    My favourite go-to everyday blush is Benefit’s sugarbomb~ I actually don’t think I own ANY MAC blushes yet!

  94. Melissa says:

    This blush has a cute name :)

  95. Kathy says:

    I tend to go from product to product, so I’ve only hit the pan on one blush: Nars cream blush in Penny Lane.

  96. Chris J says:

    just finished my workout… gotta prepare for big lunch w/ the boyfriend and his mom tmr!

  104. Katarina says:

    My favorite blush is Desert Rose by MAC. It’s the most beautiful dark rose color that I usually apply using a duo-fiber brush because the pigment packs a punch! You really must try it if you get the chance to!(:

  105. Anna says:

    love the name of this blush

  106. Melissa C says:

    New to your blog and I love, love, LOVE! Keep up the fabulous work, lady!

  107. Mina says:

    I love blushbaby!

  108. Milagros says:

    i hit i have never hit the pan of anything because i always get new things and stop using the old ones, and probably i blush more often than i can make people blush. :)

  109. Wendy says:

    Ohh I have hit pan on blush; it was a Mac shade that I wore every.single.day when I was in college. Can’t remember the name of it though!

  110. shokozlo says:

    My first blush was MAC Pink Swoon, then it was broken, but I fixed it with alchohol and it’s still with me^)))

  111. Anna H says:

    I favourite blush of the moment is MAC Marine Life. Beautiful yet subtle.

  112. Ami says:

    The only blush I’ve ever hit pan on is… MAC’s Blushbaby! Haha! I just hit pan on my beloved HG Blushbaby last week! I apply my blush with Nars’ #21 Ita brush and sweep it along my cheeks at an angle. Paired with Blushbaby it’s perfect because it gives me a blush/ contour effect with just one color.

  113. Nina says:

    I’ve never hit pan on a blush yet. I gravitate towards orange, peaches and corals when it comes to blushes so I end up with a ton of blush that’s basically the same color on my cheeks. I’d love to try this color just to break my orange habit!

  114. Tara says:

    I’ve never hit pan!

  115. i always blush when i think about my first crush…. ;)
    desperate mama recently posted … Have you ever thought about becoming a vegetarian?

  116. Orangey67 says:

    I apply my blush with a little bit of a swirl, and tap motion- and always approx 2 fingers away from the nose!

  117. Stephanie says:

    I use the Bobbi Brown 2 blush approach, even when I’m wearing bronzer. I just love blush! First it’s the neutral type color and then I use something as a pop!

  118. Maple says:

    Oooh.. I’ve been looking for a good blush

  119. Anna says:

    I’m afraid of hitting pan on my MAC Pink Cult – it’s my absolute favourite but I only ever use it rarely just in case it never comes back. I really hope they repromote it!

  120. Lucia says:

    I feel like I hardly ever “blush” but I guess the last time would be when my boyfriend called me a term of endearment =D

  121. Biba says:

    I think this one would be a great addition to my blush collection! :)

  122. Neeshie says:

    I have far too much blush – but funnily enough I don’t have this one!

  123. CF says:

    So happy to hit pan on my Benefit Dandelion. Can’t wait to try more MAC blushers. Currently on my wishlist MAC Pink Cult Blush (if it’s still available) and MAC Semi-Precious Rose Quartz Mineral.

  124. Tukta says:

    TGIF !

    I miss my Man J so much!!!!!

  125. Polly says:

    I don’t think I have ever hit pan on a blusher! :)

  126. Jenn says:

    The best method to apply blush was learned from you, Ms. K! I take the blush onto my 129 and “bounce” the powder onto the apples of my cheeks. Works wonders and wayy better than my previous method. :)

  127. lorraine says:

    have been wanting to try mac blushes, dainty perhaps? :D

  128. Carrie Ann says:

    I use EcoTools brushes to apply my blush. I just got the angled blush brush and I’m surprised at how much I love it. I’d never used an angled brush to apply my blush before, but I keep reaching for that one and neglecting my other blush brush. It’s so soft and it applies very nicely.

  129. This one is on the top of my whislist! I started using bluses only two months ago, so I did not hit any pan yet. ;)

  130. Christy O says:

    I was just at the Burberry counter sighing over the blushes. Too expensive. I’d love to win this, looks like such a great neutral shade to brighten.

  131. sol says:

    i only have one blush which i hit the pan, it’s NARS Madly, only because the texture is soft and buttery unlike the other NARS blushes!

  132. Marieke says:

    I’ve never hit the pan on any blush… I think it’s because I only have blushes of good quality. I only need a little product to make me blush!

  133. Alina says:

    You were the first one to introduce BlushBaby to me, now I am looking forward to get it somehow)

  134. Christine says:

    Wow!! This blush is gorgeous on you!! I’ve been using MAC products for years but I have never tried their blushes! I would love to try this one on! :D

  135. Marinshe says:

    Yeey giveaway again :) I’m in :) Thank yoouuu

  136. Jennifer says:

    I am about to run out of this color! I’d love it! :)

  137. Laura says:

    I didn’t know this shade!! It looks so pretty :)

  138. Gina G says:

    This shade looks really pretty! <3

  139. Tasha says:

    Been meaning to buy some new blush, so this would be perfect!

  140. Marie says:

    This is such a universally flattering shade!

  141. DalaLuz says:

    I totally love my blushes :-) Most girls list mascara as the absolute must have essential, but if I am in a hurry some blush on my cheeks & brow bone+ is always my go to quickie make up :-) I have a bit of a square face and very round eyes, so a little sculpting goes a long way.

  142. Rae says:

    Believe it or not I have never owned blush. This is actually the one I’m looking at for my first blush!

  143. ami says:

    Just started getting into MAC blushes- well blushes in general I need to expand my collection!

  144. Judith van Bemmel says:

    Wow, i love this blush! The color is beautifull!

  145. Yvette K says:

    haha i’ve never hit pan on a blush – probably because i get so excited about new ones :) like this! :D love this colour!

  146. Jennifer Lam says:

    I love blush and I think this would be a good one to add to my collection!

  150. Aileen says:

    Me? Hit pan on a blush? That would be a miracle! Lol I’m such a blush addict! I don’t know if I’ll ever see pan in a blush!

  151. FragrantWitch says:

    I am long- time lurker who loves your blog – this blush has been on my wish list so I am coming out of the shadows. Thanks for the chance!

  167. Katrina says:

    I don’t wear blush everyday so I’ve yet to hit the bottom of the pan.

  168. Kristen says:

    I’ve hit the pan on a Bobbi Brown blush.

  169. Sara says:

    this was one of the first mac products i ever purchased and now there is so little left in the pan that i can hardly use it.

  172. Chloe says:

    The only time I’ve ever hit the pan on a blush is when they’ve fallen on the floor, smashed, and been completely useless. Sob.

  173. LustreBonBon says:

    I need to begin a MAC Blush collection.

  174. Sandy says:

    I’m finally hitting pan on my NARS Orgasm blush — the very first product I ever bought from Sephora (embarassed to say how many years ago!). So I could totally use Blushbaby, and would love to try it out!

  175. halli says:

    mmm this looks wonderful, I really need to start expanding my blush collection. I don’t own many, and I’ve certainly never hit the pan haha

  176. Destinee says:

    My first MAC blush was Melba. I am still in love with that blush. I haven’t hit pan on it yet but I think I will really soon.

  177. Megan says:

    Can’t leave the house without a bit of blush on! Gorgeous colour! Need to start collecting MAC makeup big time!! :)

  178. Lex B. says:

    Been on blush kick lately, right now my fav go to is Mac Pinch Me. Wouldn’t mind adding another to my growing collection. Lol. Happy Friday!

  179. Joan says:

    I NEED that blush! You can change my life, just like that nice MAC lady changed yours!

  180. Hohe says:

    Looks like a nice color for a blush.

  181. april says:

    Hey Karen! Let’s rally for MAC to have a JEM makeup line. I would love to see what a Holigram MSF or a Misfit e/s would look like! Rio/ El Hub would swoon!

  182. Emma says:

    Thanks to your unsung hero post from yesterday I’m wearing MAC Mulch eyeshadow this morning : )

    Have a great weekend!

  198. Stacie says:

    I have just started wearing blush so I would love this.

  199. Alison says:

    never hit pan on a blush so i’ve got a million now

  200. Atifa H says:

    Hit pan on a blush? Oh yeah, Revlon Amythyst Rose. One of the most beautiful colours I’ve ever seen– it’s now discontinued. Worthy of a few tears.

  201. Katie says:

    Love your blog! Never even owned MAC cosmetics because of my budget :-/

  202. Stephanie says:

    i’ve never hit pan on a blush… how weird haha! :)

  203. Kaitlin says:

    I’ve definitely hit the pan on blush before! I had a shade from Clinique when was the only thing I’d wear for years. I went through about two pans of it – amazing!

    Have fun on your trip!

  204. Marika says:

    I’ve never hit pan on a blush, but I feel like I’m getting close to pan on Benefit’s Bella Bamba :)

  205. KPrice says:

    I would love to win this! Thanks for a chance at a giveaway.

  206. Vijaya says:

    Today I’m watching the Colbert report.
    Vijaya recently posted … On Cloud Nine

  207. KellyG says:

    That’s such a pretty shade….I wish I knew how to apply it correctly. I never get it right

  208. jade says:

    made a trip to the shu uemura counter today. splurged on an eye brush but i think it’ll be a good investment!

  209. Jennifer says:

    Pick me me me! (I’m steak!) *Btw, that’s a line from Madagascar. I’ve just watched it 2 days ago. :P

    Thank you for yet another giveaway! I only have 2 blush in my makeup bag, they are actually the same color (Nude Pink, I think) from Estee Lauder. I got them in a promotion, so they’re not the best color for my skin… And I don’t know if it’s normal, but the product kinda have a hard layer on top… I can’t barely pack any product on my brush. :(

    Have a nice day Karen!

  210. Brenda says:

    Hit pan on benefit coralista :D and being near my boyfriend always makes me blush :) xxx

  211. Evelyn says:

    I’ve never taken a look at this blush before, but it looks beautiful on you!

  212. Chris25 says:

    I just woke up. I need coffee.

  213. Bunny says:

    I’m always hitting pan on MAC”s Pinch O’Peach. I think I’ve gone through at least 4 of it ( and I have a large collection that I wear a lot too).

  214. Tuhina says:

    Thank god it’s Friday!

  215. Reyes says:

  219. Inky says:

    I love the Real Techniques Blush Brush for applying brush these days!

  220. Claud says:

    Last time I blushed? Used to be every single time someone gave me a compliment, but nowadays, it’s my little 8 months old who receive all the compliments! I’m so proud of her that I don’t mind – but I could use some blush to compensate! :)

  221. Krista says:

    My new favorite blush brush is by Ecotools

  222. Kuhika Gupta says:

    I have been eyeing this blush for soooo long!!!! I have never hit pan on a blush, but I might just on this one, if I win it obviously :)

    TGIF! Can’t wait to get out and enjoy the sun this weekend!

  230. Rachel J says:

    I need this blush. Winning would be a perfect end to what has started out as a horrible day which will include an emergency trip to the dentist! Fingers crossed!

  231. Yuri says:

    I like to used my fingers to apply blush I think the warmth of my fingers mAke it easier to apply

  232. Sarah S. says:

    I love how you styled your bangs in your photo on this post!

  233. Mylie says:

    I’ve never hit a pan of blush! lol But I always want some new ones! lol

  234. Sarah says:

    I’d just like to reiterate how much I love your blog. It’s the perfect mix of Tabs-awesomeness, drugstore cosmetics, and big counter cosmetics. Your personality shines through every review and article you do! It brightens my day.

  235. Christine says:

    Oooooh pretty! I don’t have any MAC blush, yet!

  236. Shubana says:

    I’ve been contemplating replacing my beloved chanel blush with either a mac or a nars made one… the decisions !

  237. Zara says:

    Would love to win a giveaway at somepoint in my life…so till then.

  238. knownever says:

    I’m still working on hitting pan on blush. i guess i dont wear makeup enough to hit pan on anything

  239. Laurenn111 says:

    I used a sigma angled blush brush!

  240. Kali says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever hit pan on any blushes, but I have on two bronzers – Snow Bunny by Too Faced and Smashbox’s Fusion Soft Lights.

  241. Rebecca says:

    I have never hit bottom of a blush but that’s cuz I have soooo many. I love blush!

    Blushbaby looks gorgeous! I would love to try it! :)

  244. Mandy says:

    I have hit pan on a couple… NARS Orgasm comes to mind!

  245. aubrie soetaert says:

    The only blush I’ve ever hit pan on is Orgasm.

  246. Lydia says:

    I never use blush! I always use a darker MSF :) But this looks really pretty.

  247. Rona says:

    My mac confession is that yesterday after swearing that I wouldn’t buy any more makeup (way to make a promise I can’t keep) I saw vex eye shadow and fell in love with it. I bought it in the pan and didn’t get a bag so that I could hide it from the people I was with so they thought I was sticking to my make up ban! I also tested blushbaby and it’s gorgeous. Hope I win!

  248. Alicia says:

    Looking for the perfect pink blush…can this be it? Only now starting to love blush…

  249. Michelle says:

    Blushbaby was my first MAC blush and I love it also!!

  250. Sabah says:

    You look like Jackie Chan here!

  255. Lia says:

    I love blush, I just love it.

  256. Franny says:

    Pretty blush! I definitely have nothing like it. Also, SO glad that it’s Friday :)

  257. Christina C says:

    I went to yoga and I am so sore all over, I can hardly move!

  258. Gunita says:

    Blushbaby is my absolute favorite! Wore it for my sushi date last night :) YUM

  259. Heather says:

    I’ve always wanted to try MAC!

  260. Norlyn says:

    I love this color!! It reminds me of my favorite bareminerals blush that I’m about to run out of. On a different note – my fiance proposed to me last night!! I’m spending the whole work day looking at my ring. :)

  261. Rachel says:

    i will cry when i hit pan on my mac angel blush!

  262. Amber L. says:

    I’ve hit the pan on my Nars Orgasm finally. That stuff has lasted me for a long time!

  263. Nat says:

    The last time someone made me blush was yesterday. When I ran into an ex boyfriend at a store. Lol.

  264. Jill says:

    Happy Friday!!!!!!!! :)

  265. I only have one thing of blush. This would be awesome to win!

  266. Gala says:

    wow!!! yay!! I dont usually blush.. being the clumsy being that I am you get used to being emabrassed :)

  267. I would love to win this. I only have one blush!

  268. Lans says:

    i love mac blushes!!! :D

  269. Cecille says:

    Woohoo, finally friday! Have a great weekend.

  272. Marilyn says:

    I blush when my husband tells me I’m beatiful!

  273. Sandra L says:

    Hi! First time I enter a contest in here. I love blush but currently have only one. My dear Guerlain Divinore Rose pluie d’or has entered retirement (after way too long), I broke another one to pieces and I am currently left with a Givenchy le prim blush in vintage rose which hopefully is one of those multitasker colours that look good with anything.
    Good luck everyone!

  274. laura says:

    i just hit the pan on my sonia kashuk blush. for some reason i was very excited about it (the prospect of needing a new blush soon perhaps?)

  275. Stephanie P. says:

    Well I’ve only recently found the beauty in blush. I love it now, and I think Blushbaby is a very pretty color that I’d love to have.

  276. Kelly says:

    This is a beauty and I would love to win it!

  277. Petra says:

    I could really, really use this blush. Under-employed and broke:(

  278. Shannon says:

    pretty! I’ve never hit the pan on a blush, but that might be due to the fact that I always seem to lose them, lol! The 3 I have now are keepers, and I plan on using ‘em till the pans are EMPTY!

  279. Jessica says:

    last time I blushed was yesterday when I received what my significant other got me for my birthday. ^__^

  280. Jennifer says:

    Hi Karen, I have a few blushes but have only ever hit pan on one – which also happens to be my first ever MAC blush (Ladyblush in the cremeblend formula)! It would be lovely to have another MAC blush :)

  281. Telsa Love says:

    i always have to smile when putting on my blush! gets it in the perfect place.

  282. Katherine says:

    I’ve been wanting to try this blush for awhile!

  283. Natalie says:

    The first blush I ever wore was by Clinique – my mother took me to the Clinique counter of our local Macy’s to buy me my first makeup when I was 13, so needless to say that pan is long gone! I haven’t worn blush since then because I always thought I was naturally flushed enough – until last week I was introduced to Blushbaby at my local MAC! I LOVE this color – it’s very natural and sheer but builds beautifully. I’d love to have a back-up pan in case I lose mine!

  284. Nichole Clark says:

    Oh this is so pretty! I’ve hit pan on Estee Lauder’s blush all day in “mocha rose”. Since my skin is so pale i use just a little bit and use it more like a pinkish contour {if that makes sense}.

  285. Stephanie R says:

    I usually use my fingers when it comes to applying a cream blush (unless it’s a stick blush), a fan brush if it’s powder. Right now my favorite is the Limited Edition Gradient Blush from Clinique in Black Honey.

  286. Nadeen K says:

    in desperate need of a new blush!

  287. Nadya says:

    i am just recently discovering blush

  288. Shannon says:

    Honey, I NEED a good, go-to blush. Especially one that works on the brown girl, skin. It seems that whenever I go to the makeup counter and look at the blush, I am attracted to really, really, really frosty shades. Frosty shades that make people ask me if I’ve been crafting, or using glitter in any way. Maybe this one will hit my inner Ctrl-Alt-Del and get me started on a new path. LOL!

  289. Karen B says:

    Me me me me! Hehe.
    I would love to win as I’ve never tried Blushbaby. I keep on wanting to but somehow never leave the MAC counter with it…

  290. Cassandra says:

    My last occasion to blush was this morning. The boyfriend left me a sweet message on my voicemail wishing me a good day at work.

  291. Aretha Alencar says:

    I like very much to apply blush with a duo fibre brush…I think the result is more natural

    A great weekend for everyone! :)

  292. BitseyZ says:

    I have a rather pink complexion and refused to wear blush for A LONG TIME. Now that I have my skin under control I cannot stop buying blush!

  293. Nicole says:

    Here I am, one of the biggest makeup junkies with tons of MAC eyeshadows, paint pots, lipsticks & glosses but can you believe I do not own one single MAC blush?!?!?! I know, I know…it’s blasphemy!!! I have 2 of the cream blushes but winning Blushbaby could make it my “gateway” blush ….. :)

  294. Maria says:

    a new guy started at work and hes super cute! he definitly was the last person who made me blush.

  295. Sammy says:

    Hi! This is my first time commenting on your blog I love all of your posts! :)

  296. Selene says:

    I love blush!!! I can pass for a ghost without one.

  297. Melissa says:

    Enjoy your time traveling!

  298. Melissa says:

    I absolutely love this blush! I have a MAC blush that’s a similar color. I can’t think of the name now, but this is a great giveaway!

  299. Ria says:

    I want to go on vacation, but this would make me happy as well.

  300. Priscilla says:

    I have honestly never hit pan on anything. I don’t have occasion to wear much makeup, but I love it in general. Weird huh? Feel more like a collector than an owner.

  301. indoorkitty says:

    I’ve never panned a blush but panned many a bronzer liberally abused as a blush. Bronzer was my gateway to blush-dom. I’m like twenty blushes deep. I never got blushes before as they wouldn’t show up on me or they’d be way way too bright; then I got my hands on a stippling brush and some Cargo Siena and the rest is history!

  302. Marian says:

    I blush easily. There is a man who flirts with me at the grocery store every time I go and I blush furiously each time!

  303. annick says:

    Tweeted this too!

    Last time I blushed was when my boyfriend texted me something naughty yesterday *BLUSH*

  304. Fiorella says:

    I’ve hit pan on two blushbabies!

  305. bunnada says:

    That brush looks lovely!! ^^

  306. Aleeya says:

    Wow this blush looks fantastic. It looks even better on you. I have not gotten into wearing blushes yet but this is a great starter color for me.

  307. Etra says:

    This color looks great!

  308. Vanessa says:

    Just started wearing blush this summer. Now I don’t feel like I’ve got all my makeup on without a swipe of blush. Getting kind of addicted!

  309. Alex says:

    Blushbaby has been on my lust list for so long!!!!!

  310. Marni says:

    I hit pan on NARS orgasm, love it!

  311. Allyson says:

    I’ve hit the pan in my NARS blush. I’ve been thinking of getting a cream blush from MAC next, would love this!!

  312. Sanah says:

    How’s Tabs?!

  313. Kimberly says:

    love this color!

  314. anne says:

    Karen, your site is just plain addicting, I have to stop by at least 3x/day to see what’s new!!

  315. kimkats says:

    I’ve always wanted this blush, but never seem to think to get it when I’m at MAC! Thanks for the contest – So nice of you to give it away!

  316. Grace says:

    My favorite makeup item is blush, and I am always looking for that perfect everyday color with a bit of a warmth to it! Blushbaby could be it! Usually I go for darker “fun” colors just because they catch my eye, but I do have a weakness for wearable neutrals! Thank you for doing this giveaway and good luck to all :)

  317. Carissa says:

    this is one of my all time favorite mac blush colors! i always take it with me on vacation!!

  318. Jill says:

    TGIF! Blushbaby looks so gorgeous! I can’t believe I haven’t tried it yet! Time for a visit to a MAC store!

  319. Maria says:

    Never, ever hit pan on a blush. I have a ton of them so it’s time to get cracking on that, lol.

  320. vive says:

    I have always wanted to try this one, Karen!

  321. yio says:

    my vacation is almost over! :(

  322. Brian McD aka Roulette says:

    I would love to add blushbaby to my collection…! It’s one that I don’t have.

  323. Laura says:

    This blush is so beautiful. I don’t have a single mac blush.

  324. Love it!!!! I am dying to try this shade!

  325. Jula says:

    I was blushing yesterday, haha ;)

  326. Jody says:

    I think the only time I ever hit pan on a blush was on the first blush I ever owned which was by Jane. Since my makeup collecting aka hoarding habit, I have never hit pan.

  327. Olivia A. says:

    Surprisingly (to me) I actually have hit pan on a blush… It was Clinique’s Cheeky Peach, which they don’t make anymore (so sad!), and my pan is pretty old…….. Hmm…

    Anyhoo, I hope you have safe travels, and a wonderful weekend! :-) And thank you for hosting this giveaway, Karen!

  328. Erika says:

    I’ve always wanted a cat but am allergic…so i got a fox terrier and named him kitty instead. :D

  329. Linnea says:

    I have definitely hit the pan on one blush, but have never come close on any other one! I just threw out the shards of it once it broke up!

    twitter: linneacs.

  330. Christina says:

    My first “high end” blush was from Stila, and I still have it!

  331. Lisa S. says:

    Havn’t hit pan on any blush in years! When I apply blush, I always smile, hit the apples with a circular motion and then sweep it up towards my temples. I use ecotools blush brushes and I have one brush for every blush I have. So I have about 12(!) brushes. I then blend, blend, blend
    With my clean fingers and if that’s not enough, I’ll take a cotton pad and buff the edges.

  332. Issa says:

    i haven’t tried anything from MAC blushes…hopefully, this will be the first time… :)

  333. Melody says:

    lol Gateway blush! I know how that goes. I haven’t hit pan on a blush in a year or two, because I’ve started buying new ones too often. It feels weird to think about because even though I’ve worn makeup since I was 13, i didn’t wear blush until I was 18.

  334. Barbara says:

    I’ve never even tried a MAC blush…

  335. Erin says:

    I love that blush. Also, your hair looks amazing!!!

  336. Aish says:

    That looks like a gorgeous blush. I’ve never gotten a Mac blush before… maybe this will be MY gateway blush!

  337. irishkicks says:

    im just now starting to get into blushes … my collection is so mini!

  338. BooBooNinja says:

    Played soft/baseball with friends for the 5th time in my life last night.
    So much fun!
    Was a silly, fun, goofy way to spend a lovely summer evening.

  339. Sellen says:

    Pretty! I”m always looking for blushes that create a natural look.

  340. Jenny says:

    I’ve hit pan on blush back when I only had a couple (it was a Jane blush), now I have so many that I’m sure it won’t happen for a long time!

  341. Lorinda Hicks says:

    Would love to give this blush a try, it looks incredibly versatile and I love that it would probably work on both my tan skin and my daughter’s very very pale skin!

  342. TheMissTrious says:

    Happy Friday !

  343. Emily says:

    I think I hit pan on a blush once…way back in high school. It was my only blush, and I wore it every day, I don’t have it anymore, so that must have been what happened…Or was it just a dream?

  344. Heather says:

    The last person to make me blush was one of my friends when she was teasing me about me and my boyfriend.

  345. Paula says:

    I’m not a big blush wearer, but I’d love to try this one!

  346. lillian says:

    I love blush i havent found the right brush to apply it. The ones i have are either to big or to small.

  347. Nicole says:

    I love that you have stayed true to this blush for so long! My first MAC blush was Swoon, and I too only wore it for years. I have never tried Blush Baby, but because of its soft pink tones, I think it would be a perfect shade!

  348. Emily says:

    I blush all the time. Can’t really help it my cheeks turn red for any old reason.

  349. inycat says:

    I own 1 blush…and it’s a so-so Clinique freeby. Would love to own blushbaby!

  350. Sarah says:

    That is a pretty color! I love blush

  351. supriya says:

    I love MAC!!!

  352. Lívia Alves says:

    I don’t have a MAC blush, I would really love to have one to try *-* Everybody says they are amazing!

  353. Natalie Wilkinson says:

    my boyfirend is taking me to a wonderful dinner tomorrow. i am very excited. i wish only that i had made a dress for our date earlier this month!

    but today i am going to get a waxing and then to the naval ship harbored in San Diego called the midway =)

  354. Rachelle says:

    Hi Karen! I love MAC products and I think your kitty Tabs is absolutely gorgeous!!!!! JHave a great weekend!

  355. Linda says:

    i have never hit pan on a blush :( it takes forever and i have so much! xO thanks for this giveaway! :)

  356. alyssa schwab says:

    That is a pretty color of blush, ive wanted blushbaby for sometime now, and MANY OTHER mac blushes haaa :) just havent made the jump on em yet. i would really love to try them out. but i like to use a big fluffy brush like a kabuki size brush and swivle it around so i get a nice natural even color.

  357. Darlene says:

    I LOVE Mac!!!

  358. Chiantelle says:

    The first time I hit pan on my blush was just a couple of weeks ago. It was my first blush purchase and it was the blush that came with the E.L.F. face beauty book. It was a very satisfying moment for me :)

  359. Christina says:

    Pretty!

  360. Jade says:

    loooove mac blushes1

  361. Katie says:

    I’m working at a pageant this week!

  362. Kylie says:

    This is so pretty!:)

  363. Pam says:

    I just bought this blush for my mom. (I updated her makeup bag as the bulk of the products and tools were old and I know she would never do this for herself.) When I picked out this blush, I thought that I should try this for myself. Maybe this will be my chance…..

  364. Katrina says:

    Ouuu pretty!

  365. Erica K says:

    My new favorite MAC blush is Trace of Gold but this one would be great to try out!

  366. Laura says:

    love your blog!! xoxo

  367. Michelle says:

    I would love to try a MAC blush. I have actually only just started using MAC… as in, I went there once last week and bought 2 eye shadows and a lipstick. I must say though, I’m already hooked!

    I am also blush-obsessed… and MBB-obsessed! Love your blog Karen! :)

  368. helen says:

    Why just this morning Zeus the Wondercat was telling me that he wanted to add Blushbaby to his kit. I told him if he won that he would have to pose with Blushbaby and EvRev– he agreed to my terms– and any that you may also have! Have a great weekend!

  369. Airess says:

    I have barely hit pan on my Nars Orgasm blush! The only things that I really hit pan on is my ELF Bronzer and my everyday eyeshadows!

  370. Christine says:

    Oh my gosh this blush has been on my mac wishlist for quite sometime now, it would be awesome to win !

  371. Terri B. says:

    I hit the pan on NARS Sertao. Love that color.

  372. Rachel Phillips says:

    Thank you Karen!

  373. MoreBoopThanBetty says:

    I love love LOVE blush! Probably one of my biggest makeup addictions. I especially love MAC blushes! Great pigment, great colours, great application – LOVE!

  374. GinaBMontes says:

    I had a similar experience with Blushbaby, never really wore blush, but immediately feel in love with how nice it made my whole face :o)

  375. Michele says:

    I would be thrilled to try a MAC blush! Thannx for the giveaway! :)

  376. Jennifer says:

    This blush is so pretty!

  377. DalaLuz says:

    It would be my first MAC blush too :-) I love my blushes!

  378. TL says:

    Looks lovely!

  379. becky kaplan farone says:

  380. Elaine says:

    The last time someone made me blush was when an older gentleman complimented me :)

  381. Beth says:

    Blushing is so cute and honest! There is no hiding it!

  382. Beth says:

    I’ve never tried any by mac. Winning a blush would make me blush!

  383. Mandy says:

    I have never owned a MAC blush so would love to win one!

  384. Sabrina says:

    Here’s my story: yesterday, my boyfriend of 7 months broke up with me. I cried for a LONG time before I realized that I needed to get over it. You know what I reached for first? My MAC Evolution Revolution lipglass. When I held it in my hand, I could see all the multidimensional sparkles glistening and it was as if each sparkle was encouraging me, pushing me to stop crying and telling me that yes, everything was going to be okay.

    I would really love to win this blush because it would make me feel so much better and give me the encouragement that I need. Every time I feel sad or angry, I come to your blog and read a random post and it makes me feel better. So thank you, Karen. Even if I don’t win this blush I want to thank you. I hope you know that you touch people’s hearts every day. :)

  385. maxi says:

    wow this looks absolutely beautiful and settled blush ..love to win one :)
    and hi tu Mr.TABs ;)

  386. Sherry B. says:

    The only time I’ve ever hit pan on a blush was many years ago on a no-name blush that I got in a cheap Xmas kit This was from a discount store. Don’t know what it was, but I used every last scrap of the blush and hated to see the end of it! It was the only blush that has ever really looked natural and healthy on me. This is coming from a person who prefers high-quality cosmetics! The really funny part is that the shade was a total dupe for this MAC Blushbaby! I wish I had seen this one a long time ago; could have saved me a lot of money.

  387. Nicolette says:

    wow that blush is gorge!

  388. Joyce B says:

    Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend and tell us if anything makes you blush this weeekend!

  389. Bernice says:

  392. amanda says:

    ahhh i’ve been wanting to try blushbaby for MONTHS!!! happy friday! :)

  393. Jess says:

    The last time someone made me blush was almost a year ago at a wedding, where my boyfriend was the best man. After he did his best man’s speech, the groom grabbed the mic and yelled, “You’re next man! When are you proposing?!” Everyone looked at me and all I could do was blush with a sheepish smile! So embarrassing!!

    Needless to say, it was all part of my boyfriend’s plan! because he proposed the following wknd while we were on vacay!

    That was the best blush of my life <3

  394. Christine says:

    Usually I apply my blush using the “bounce” method I saw in one of your videos :-). Gives such a natural look :D.

  395. Bridget says:

    It is soooo flipping easy to make me blush. Lol I hate that! I have no pokerface! ;)

  396. Christine says:

    one of my fav blushes is MAC pinch o’ peach

  397. Elo says:

    Great!!!
    I just have to blushes, so really need this product from M.A.C to improve my “collection”.

  398. Lisa says:

    I’ve been looking for a new blush tone, this one looks great!

  399. Essy says:

    I’m just discovering the joys of blush in the last few months. It’s amazing what a little color can do for the whole face!

  400. Rachel says:

    It takes A LOT to make me blush…so I can’t recall the last time it happened…I’ve never hit pan on a blush (I have TOO many!). My “go to” blushes are Dollymix and Full Fuschia from MAC’s overdyed collection. I love me some bright pink!

  401. Georgia says:

    Tomorrow I’m heading off with the girlies for my birthday weekend away! And I reckon blushbaby would make an excellent addition to my modest present stash…

  402. Jones says:

    Oh man, I am a blush fiend lately. I’ve never tried any of MAC’s blushes. Currently I’m loving NYC’s Blushable Creme Sticks in Plaza Pink ($3! And it looks really nice and natural on my skin). Have you tried those?

  403. Anna says:

    Craving mango!

  404. Elaine R says:

    I am a fair skinned beauty and could use some color-this blush looks lovely!

  405. Cece says:

    last time someone made me blush was the last time i saw my boyfriend. We went on vacation and the first thing he said to me when i woke up with no makeup on was”youre beautiful” i was speechless.

  406. saku says:

    I blush easily, but sometimes can’t tell.

  407. Cece says:

    last time someone made me blush was the last time i saw my boyfriend. We went on vacation and the first thing he said to me when i woke up with no makeup on was”youre beautiful” i was speechless. I BLLUUUSSSHHHEEEEDD

  421. AAJ83 says:

    About to hit the pan on my MAC TENDERLING soon :)

  422. Ginelle says:

    Going out in NYC tonight, this blush would have worked perfectly with my outfit :)

  425. Astha says:

    Last time I hit the pan was a shimmer waves blush in Rose from the Body Shop. I just bought a new blush from Estee Lauder which is a perfect reddish plum which will be perfect for fall. (Also, cant believe summer is almost over)

  426. Chelsie says:

  436. elyse says:

    this looks like a really pretty natural blush. I would be happy to win it, as I am a blush addict.

  437. Lors says:

    I’d love to have this. My first and only MAC blush was Plum Foolery that I used up about 3 yrs ago!

  438. Andrea says:

    Today I chipped my nails at work, so on my break I got a fresh manicure. Great way to start the weekend :o)

  439. daniela says:

    OMG!!!!!! love this blush, amazing opportunity!!♥

  440. Liz says:

    I pretty much don’t blush, haha – I think it must be my skin color or something. Which is why I adore blush to add some color to my complexion. I’ve been using Cargo’s The Big Easy a lot lately, and I just use a regular blush brush from Posh.

    Also, after going through your old Mac Unsung Heroes posts the other day, I went and picked up a Technakohl liner, which I am loving so far for tightlining – so thank you, Karen! :)

  441. Stacy Z says:

    The last time someone made me blush: the Andrew Garfield-lookalike at my library noticed that I was staring at him!

  442. Quinn says:

    I’ve never hit the pan on a blush, but I’ve only been wearing blush since maybe February of this year. I have 4 pans, but two of them are super pink so I’ll probably never hit the pans on those, I’ll have to toss ‘em first. Blushbaby looks so pretty I bet I’d hit the pan on that one because I’d want to wear it everyday fo’ real!

  443. Lucy Huggins says:

    I have never hit pan on a blush- it seems to last forever!

  444. Katie S. says:

    Soooo glad it’s Friday! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

  445. steph b says:

    I have never hit pan on blush. I’m still looking for a blush that makes me look better, not like I’m wearing obvious blush.

  446. tina says:

    such a pretty colour! x

  447. Kim says:

    I love blush! I probably own more nail polish than anything else, but blush is second with eyeliners a close third. I’ve definitely hit pan on a few.

  448. ayesha says:

    I blushed earlier today at my gym class! I was doing a zumba class, and we had to bellydance…and the instructor pointed me out for doing a move correctly!! ehehhe :D

  449. Brianna G. says:

    I’ve never hit pan before!

  450. Barbara says:

    I love applying blush using flat fluffy brush! It gets all over my cheek, while looking natural.

  451. Yasmine says:

    Our skintones are similar and I generally don’t wear blush, so I’m hoping this’ll be my gateway product, too. Hah.

  452. brooke says:

  457. aundrea says:

    I just hit the pan on my favorite chanel blush!! Saddest feeling ever…its not sold anymore :(

  458. Sammie says:

    I’ve yet to hit pan on a blush but I’m pretty sure that’s because I have the attention span of a child and constantly switch between my blushes or just keep buying new ones when I get bored of my current ones!

  459. PS says:

    Would love to win. I apply blush with a fan brush.

  460. blusher12 says:

  464. Val says:

    I use my new 187 to apply blush, and I love it!!

  465. JC says:

    My first blush was Nars Orgasm and I still have not hit pan. I would love to try a MAC blush…

  466. Hailey says:

    I love the MAC ladyblush blush creme and I was so disappointed when they discontinued it. I hope they will repromote it in another collection.

  475. Jane says:

  476. Jamie says:

    Happy Friday! I hit pan on one blush, but that was years ago. I can’t even remember what blush it was. That’s terrible. :(

  477. MODowd says:

    I use MAC’s 116 Blush Brush, and have hit pan on Trace Gold blush and Warm Soul Mineralized blush–I hope they never get discontinued!

  478. Alka says:

  480. Svetlana says:

    I use MAC 187 brush to apply my blush.

  481. Amy from NY says:

    I would love a MAC Blushbaby blush! In terms of MAC blushes, I only own 1 MAC blush, but it’s a plum LE from the Liberty of London collection and it’s more wearable as an eyeshadow!

  482. brittany says:

    i want it! :)

  483. Natalie says:

    I’ve never hit pan on any blush – I think I have too many to do that!

    Blush is my obsession! My most recent blush purchase was MAC Peachykeen –the perfect summer color!

  486. Darianne says:

    I’ve never hit pan on a blush. I’ve always wanted to try something else or gotten bored with a color. Yet, I always like blushes that are bigger in size! Catch 22.

    I love blush… I have hit pan on Cargo Blu Ray blush/highlighter (original) one. I use it for everything. Thanks for the contest.

  490. Stephanie says:

    I like the EcoTools blush brush. I pat the blush on with the flat side first and then use the fluffy end to blend it.

  491. Johana says:

    Have a great trip. Would love to win never worn MAC before but i have other blushes I like but none this color.

  492. amanda johnson says:

  502. Regina says:

    This blush looks like an awesome / universal color!

  503. Rielle says:

    The only time I’ve ever hit pan on a blush was my last well-dressed. Love it!

  504. Katty says:

    Always wanted to try this :]

  505. Allison says:

    I have never hit the pan on a blush! My favorite is Tarte’s Blushing Bride cheekstain. I’ve had it for over 2 years and it seems like there’s still a neverending supply!

  506. Jocelyn says:

    I’ve never worn a beige based blush before, it would be interesting to try.

  507. Katie says:

    Woooo I need me some Blush Baby!

  508. jane h. says:

    Hit pan on MAC blush crime called lillicent.

  509. pearl says:

    My fav blush is Tarte amazonian blush. I love how much longer they stay..

  510. Nikki Nikita says:

    I’ve been using my fingers to apply my blush recently because I can’t get enough of cream blushes!

  511. Now that I think about it I’ve never hit the pan on a blush before… the closet I’ve came was with my NARS Orgasm blush but that was when I only had one… now I have too many blushes. My favorite blush of the moment is Vincent Longo’s Day Play Duo Combo Blush. Gorgeouss really.

  512. Kristina says:

    I’ve only hit the pan once on a blush, it was a Revlon cream blush in the most amazing color. I know I’ll never find it again and that makes me so sad.

  513. Lauren says:

    I’ve yet to hit pan on a blush, and I’ve only had two in my life! (-: But I do love the stuff, and wear it every time I put on makeup!

  514. J says:

    I’ve hit the pan on NARS deep throat more times than I can count!

  515. Lore says:

    I’m too tan to blush! :P

    But my favorite is Physicians Formula Powder Palette Blush in Blushing Mocha. Nothing beats that! Well… Maybe Blushbaby. It’s soo beautiful!

  516. Kelly says:

    I just hit pan on my favorite MAC blush Shy Beauty. It was a limited edition, so now I my hoping they repromote it real soon.

  517. Barbara says:

    I’ve hit the pan on 2 Boots No.7 blushes in Soft Damson. Now that I’ve found a blush that doesn’t make my pale self look like a clown, Target doesn’t have it anymore!!
    Would love to try a MAC blush!!

  518. Melisa says:

    The color is pretty!!! I want it

  519. Patricia says:

    I don’t usually blush because my skin in a nice chocolate tone but the last time someone made me “chocolate blush” lol was my boyfriend when he says “anything for my future wife.” Ahhhhh love

  520. Audrey says:

    I’m vacationing in San Francisco right now! It’s so cold but beautiful!

  521. Kate says:

    So many blushes….so little time! Just recieved a mini order from MAC in the mail today, picked up some Bloggers Obssession items!!

  522. Laura says:

    cats!

  523. SH says:

    I actually use the brush they give you! It’s from Covergirl and it actually works if you have a really light hand. I mean, it’s not all in my head; I have gotten compliments from those who know I’m wearing it, and those who aren’t told just think I’m feeling really healthy that day. I tried using the brush for a rimmel blush I got and it IS crappy, so I guess not all included brushes are created equal.

  524. Amy N. says:

    I would like to try it

  525. Ice Queen says:

    I don’t smile when I apply blush. If I do, when I drop the smile, my blush ends up i weird places. lol A neutral expression and blush applied right on my cheekbones gives me a pretty flush and it is lifting, too. :)

  526. Brooke H. says:

    Oooh, I’ve never seen that color before! Very pretty, would love to win it! :-)

  546. Dlori says:

    I always love the unsung hero articles because the reviews introduce me to MAC products that I would have easily overlooked because I thought they looked too plain the way they were portrayed by the pictures posted by MAC. However, between your swatch and your review, I can see why you think these products are so fabulous and I’m trying a whole new group of products from MAC I ordinarily would not have been attracted to. Thank you for this addition to your blog.

    I’ve been wanting to try this blush since I saw this is something you actually hit the pan on

  548. Samantha says:

    MAC Blushbaby was my very first MAC blush too! I’m in need of another one :)

  549. Nora says:

    Have fun at the confrence!

  550. Robyn says:

    I blush (actually majorly flush) the minute I start presenting to a group of people I don’t know. It stays for about 25seconds or so and then it fades. But I’ve always been so self conscious of it!

    I love the color on your lips in this picture. I have hit pan once on my fav Physician’s Formula blush.

  552. Jennifer says:

    really looks warm in the pan like nars douceur, would love to try this since i dont’ own both!

  553. Christina says:

    I went for a long night walk with an almost-stranger the other night and have never felt so refreshed afterward.

  554. Siena says:

    I love my sigma F80 to death! It’s great for blush, be it powder or cream or those weird little liquidy stain ones haha and the best part: it’s great quality for a cheap price

  555. Cindy says:

    Hi Karen. Love your unsung heroes series. I’ve discovered some great lipsticks b/c of you. Wish I’d know you were coming to Vancouver before your post!

    Always on the lookout for the perfect blush . . .

  559. Jenny says:

    I finally hit pan on my sculpt & shape. Wow..

  560. Nadine says:

    In summer I don’t worry about blush too much, I always find I’m warm enough to have it naturally!

  561. Dee says:

    I lightly dab on the apple of my cheeks with a darker hue and then use a lighter more sheen blush to gloss over it :)

  562. Liz says:

    Lately I’ve been using Bobbi Brown’s technique for cheeks, using mostly bronzer then adding a little pop of pink right on the apples. Looks lovely and natural!

  563. Emily says:

    My favorite way of applying blush is dotting a cream blush on the apples and blending out with my fingertips. Then for extra staying power, I like to use a big, fluffy powder brush and sweep a shimmery color over the cream. I top that off with a little highlighter along the cheekbones and waaahla! a beautifully blushed cheek. :]

  564. Jennifer says:

    Yay! Another Sephora giveaway! I hope I win! :)

    • Jennifer says:

      Oops, I click on the wrong post. xD Well, I still hope I win this blush! I don’t currently have a blush… I think my bronzer does the job for now. :)
