InStyle Best Beauty Buys: Cheeks

Hey, everyone! It's Friday once again! :D

I may have mentioned before that I am not a makeup expert, but thanks to many of my fellow bloggers, I am now interested in learning more about it. I love reading your comments and opinions about makeup. :)

Here are the best blush products according to InStyle:
*these are 3 out of 6*

1. L'Oreal True Match - gives a hint of color, a soft effect. ($9,

2. Revlon Color Stay Mineral Finishing Powder - warms complexion with a healthy flush.(about $14)

3. Stila Convertible Color - can be used on both cheeks and lips. *interesting!*

I haven't personally tried any of these products.
Have you used these? What brand do you normally use?

Have a great weekend! :)

  1. the Stila blush looks pretty!

  2. Exquisite colors :)
    I love a good blusher.
    I have not tries any of these myself but I have a ton that seem to be in my freq. used section. Perhaps you have just given me a reason for another blog hehe. I'll deff. be answering your questions in my blog thanks Mimi :D

    P.s. + wow now 3 more Cosmetic "wants" have been added to my list :)

  3. I like the pearly look of the revlon color, I'll have to try it!

    Chic on the Cheap

  4. I've tried the revlon finishing powder, it's more of a highlight than a blush but it's really pretty and I've heard even comparable to MAC msfs :) xx

  5. ive never tried blush (except for an 80's party..haha) but i use bronzer everyday! i really like covergirl makeup but l'oreal is my second favorite!

  6. hm i haven't tried these products either. pretty colours, though!

  7. I'd love to try that Revlon Color Stay. Liking the color :-)

  8. ohhh i'm liking the stila blush!! i'm guessing it's a cream blush so that's why it can be also used on the lips (?) ahh, i really want a cream blush! :)

  9. Ooo! I love blushes! I have yet to try these out though! My favorite blush has got to be Benefit's Coralista blush. So pretty. =]

  10. LOVE my Stila Convertible Color! I use it on my cheeks about 80% of the time (other 20% being Nars). I love the fresh, slightly dewy look, as opposed to dry powder blush. And it's always a nice nudish tone on my lips.

  11. Interesting on the stila! I just recently bought high beam, my first venture into a liquidy sort of makeup to put on my cheeks.. and I love it~

  12. I haven't tried any of them, but I would like to try the first one! And it's so cheap in the States, here I would probably have to pay 20 dollars.

  13. I have the Stila Convertible Color in a discontinued color - Orchid. Its a dark reddish/purple and it's really super pigmented so I try not to put on too much. I wish I had gone for Lillium instead, it's the light pink/nude one - more wearable for everyday :)

  14. I have the Stila Convertible in Gerbera! love it :) but it doesn't work well on lips in my opinion lol!

  15. I use this mineral one by 'the body shop' I love it.

  16. I have the last one at home and its pretty good :D Thanks for you comment darling
    Much Love MaryWhitney
