Fall is getting colder, leaves are turning red and Halloween is approaching. This is my favourite part of the year – full of excitement, joy and fun! But also love Fall for the beautiful shades we all incorporate to our looks – like mauve and berry. My absolute favourite colour for cheeks for the season is mauve and I have a few favourite blushes in this particular shade. What about you?
To my surprise there isn’t that many mauve blushes on the market. There are plenty of pinks and corals, a couple of reds and tons of golden peaches (thanks to the trend set by NARS Orgasm) – but there isn’t much to choose from when it comes to mauve. I believe, that mauve is the most universal, feminine and beautiful blush colour that suits everyone and I have found a few that you might like.
NARS Blush in Sin is an old favourite of mine. This is one of the very first mauve blushes on the market and it is quite unique as I haven’t yet seen any close dupes to it. I’d even describe it as a golden mauve with a strong purple hue to it. The golden shimmer makes it appear warmer on the skin and adds a highlighting effect.
NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me is the newest release by NYX. As the names says it definitely is a mauve blush that is combined with a baby pink highlighting shade that adds a nice luminosity to the finish if used together with the main colour. It is one of the most gorgeous mauve blushes I have ever seen – it applies beautifully and looks absolutely stunning on the skin.
When Max Factor launched their Creme Puff Blushes – everyone went crazy over them as these blushes were named the dupes of the Hourglass Ambient Blushes. I also fell in love with these blushes and have a review on four of them. I love the two shades from the range that fall into mauve-ish category: Lavish Mauve and Gorgeous Berries – the first one a bit lighter and the second one is deeper.

Have an amazing day!
