Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Blushes

I have a serious blush problem. I love it. I think it’s one of the few things that makes fair-skinned lovelies like myself look alive and awake. I was introduced to Jane Iredale cosmetics over 10 years ago thanks to my wonderful mom. She said that if I was going to use makeup it might as well be good for your skin. I’ve been pretty hooked ever since. 

I started working with Jane Iredale at my job about 5 years ago. Trust me when you see makeup every single day, you’re going to go home with more than you intend from time to time. It started with Parfait- a satiny cool pink that looks like my natural flush. Parfait is my go to blush. I use it all the time as you’ll notice from my nearly naked pan of it. Whisper and Cotton Candy are my next frequently used. The 24k gold flakes in them give a bit of sparkle to the skin but doesn’t look like you’re going to a rave. Mocha and Tawny are my most recent acquires. I tend to use them a little less. Tawny is a barely there peachy tone on my skin. I love it for no makeup days. Mocha is a plummy rose that works beautifully with a smoky eye.  The bronzer I included is great for fair skin. It is not too orange and has a touch of pink to it that makes it so wearable for me. I like the light shimmery part to it as it makes the bronzer a little paler and have a bit of sheen to it.

All in all I love these blushes. They are mineral blushes in a pressed format so they’re easy to use. The color spectrum though limited is a very wearable selection. They look natural and blend beautifully on the skin. None of that chalky nonsense I commonly encounter with other brands. Price point isn’t terrible either-  $20 USD. 
Enough chatter I’ll leave you to the swatches.
