My Blusher/Bronzer/Highlighter Stash

 Hi Everyone, 
Here is my blusher, bronzer and highlighter stash :)

I'm pretty new to using blusher, bronzer or highlighters, I never used to wear any of these things on my cheeks! But now I love them, especially highlighters! :)

So lets start with bronzers...

Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzer in Shade 51
This bronzer smells lovely, it smells kind of sweet. I kind of wish i'd bought this in the darker shade as it's pretty pale. It does a good job of warming up my complexion though.

17 Instant Glow Bronzer
This is a pretty pale bronzer, it's not that pigmented and it's pretty chalky. This was the first bronzer I bought.

MUA Bronzer in Shade 3
This is the darkest bronzer out of the three, it's very pigmented and only cost £1! I've not used it that much though as I always feel that I'm too pale to pull it off.

Now onto the blushers...

MAC Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte Powder
This is kinda of blush/highlighter, it's not that pigmented but it has a lovely sheen to it :)

Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades in Blushalicious
I picked this up on a whim because I saw someone talking about it on Youtube, I love that you can use this as 4 individual blushes or swirl them altogether and use as a fifth blush.

Revlon Golden Affair in Berry Daring
I love this blush, it's really warm toned and has a nice golden shimmer to it, its very pigmented and I think this will be my go to blush in the Autumn.

MUA Blush in Shade 2
I love this light berry shade, it's lovely and natural. It's also a total bargain at only £1.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Blush in Summer Fever
This was a bargain Poundland blush, it's nice that it's got three complimenting shades. 
I don't use it much though.

Last but definitely not least, are the highlighters.

No7 Vital Enlightening Highlighter Powder
This was from the No7 Spring collection and was the first highlighter that I bought. It's buttery soft and a gorgeous champagne colour.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle
I am totally in love with this highlighter! 

Technics High Lights
This is a dupe for Benefit's High Beam, it's so pretty and it only cost me £1.50! I love mixing it with my foundation :)

    1. I didn't realise I had so many until I grouped them all together lol oops. :) I'd definitely try out the MUA blushes if you just wanted to try a new shade, can't go wrong for a quid :D

  4. Oh wow that MUA bronzer looks quite dark, will definitely give it a go. Not a huge bronzer person so can't go wrong with £1. Great collection Jess :) x
