New Blush Favorites: The All Natural Face, Pure Anada & Silk Naturals

With skin as pale as mine, it's very easy to overdo it with blush and end up looking like a clown.  For that reason, it's taken me a while to fully embrace wearing blush, but I think I'm officially a convert.  Today I want to talk about three fairly new-to-me blushes I've been loving.


The All Natural Face Desert Sand Glow
Technically this one is an all over face glow, not a blush, but it's way too dark on my skin to use all over.  Instead, I love using it as a subtle blush.  It's a nude pink color that goes with just about any makeup look.  It works equally well to tone down an otherwise dramatic makeup look, or just as an easy blush to grab when you're in a hurry or can't decide what color to wear.  

Pure Anada Fresh Mandarin Blush
Peach blushes are always a favorite around here and Fresh Mandarin is a pretty, burnt orange shade that seems especially fitting for fall.  I've mostly gotten used to loose blushes, but the added convenience of a pressed blush definitely comes in handy sometimes.  One drawback of this product is that it has a weird, putty-like smell, but according to the company, this is just the scent of the raw, unrefined jojoba oil that's used as a binder.  Would I like it better without the smell? Definitely, but it only smells in the pan, not on your face, so it isn't enough to stop me from enjoying such a pretty blush shade.

Silk Naturals Abstract Sheer Blush
Abstract is a pale, plummy pink shade with a nice, luminous finish, but no actual shimmer or glitter. The base is a cool-toned pink, but it has a slight gold sheen that warms it up nicely.  Seriously, I've been using this color almost non-stop these last few months and I just love it.  Silk Naturals' blushes are fantastic for us lighter skinned folk, because they go on sheer (at first) and blend very easily.  They're still very buildable though, so I don't think darker skinned ladies would have any issues using them either.  


The Bottom Line
The swatches of these three paint a pretty clear picture of how I like my blushes: not too dark and not too pigmented.  I'll reach for a more vivid blush on occasion, but for everyday, I usually go for a fairly subtle cheek color, somewhere along the lines of these three.  

What's your go-to blush color?

  1. The All Natural Face and Silk Naturals were early finds of mine when I was first introduced to the green beauty scene. Definitely love the latter's eyeshadow palette. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You're welcome! Silk Naturals was one of the first companies I found too! I haven't got very many eye shadows from them, but I always end up adding a couple blush samples into every order :)

    1. Glad I'm not the only one! I always see people get excited over extra pigmented blushes, but those tend to just scare me off, haha :)

  5. I love the variety that SN has, especially their dupes! Right now I'm solely using Gressa's Aux Rouge lip boost as my blush - it gives the perfect, natural redness!

    1. So true! I always end up adding a couple blush samples to any Silk Naturals order :) Aux Rouge looks like it would make a pretty blush!

  6. I really like TANF products but i have yet to try their blushes... I may have to give desert sand rose a try. My go to are cream blushes right now by either 100% Pure or by Ilia (tenderly is my favourite).

    1. My skin always seems to do better with powders than creams, so I haven't tried either of those! Tenderly looks like a great color though :)
