When wefadetogray asked me to create a post of my favorite pink blushes, I really had my work cut out for me. I have a scary penchant for pink blushes, and as frightening as it may be- this represents a small portion of my blush stash!

Tweed Pink is a gorgeous two-toned light blue-based pink. Half of it is a very light pink while the remainder is a bubble gum pink, but the mixture of the two is perfection.
Chanel Narcisse (U.S. unbaked version) is a very lovely pale pink that is a touch more neutral and less cool than Tweed Pink and Burberry Misty.
Burberry Misty is a lovely light pink that is a touch muted in the pan, but is more vibrant on the skin. It is one of my favorite and most wearable pink blushes.
Burberry Peony, on the other hand, is a richer, darker and more vibrant cool-toned.pink. Burberry blushes are so finely milled and luxurious, but they do have a pronounced floral scent that bothers many people sensitive to fragrance in makeup.
Edward Bess Filled With Desire is a more clear and complex light cool-leaning pink with an unbelievably gorgeous sheen (the shimmer itself is pink).
These five blushes are within the shade range that I reach for all of the time because they impart a natural healthy glow, and because the colors are subtle (but buildable).
Rouge Bunny Rouge Gracilis is a stunning medium tone rose with a touch of mauve- RBR makes amazing finely milled blushes that are among the best on the market.
NARS Gaiety is a decidedly cool-toned light-medium toned pink that remains one of my favorite shades.
Tom Ford Wicked is a gorgeous mid-toned cool-leaning raspberry pink with multicolor pearl. It is very pigmented, and therefore requires a light-hand, but it is a stunning blush.
Giorgio Armani No. 02 Pink hardly seems pink at all next to these other pinks. It is more of subtle light peach with a touch of pink. I love it and reach for it often, but really do wish that Armani would make a truly pink blush because their formula is simply outstanding. In fact, their formula is one of my very favorites.
Susan Thompson Cosmetics Liquid Blush in Mim's the Word remains one of my very favorite pink blushes of all time. It is a gorgeous cool-toned ballerina pink, and the formula is outstanding. In fact, I have never ever tried a liquid or cream blush that can hold a candle to this beauty.
Chanel Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Inspiration is a beautiful light cool-toned pink, but seen next to Mim's the Word, Inspiration appears to include a touch of mauve.
Milani Beauty's Touch is not just one of my most beloved blushes, but it is also one of the most affordable! This melange of different colored roses becomes a luminous cool-toned light pink that is very finely milled. In fact, the quality is so high that it rivals the quality of my luxury blushes at a fraction of the price. However, it does lack luxe packaging, but I don't care-- it is an amazing blush!
Prestige Cosmetics Pink Sorbet, like Milani, is a high quality drugstore brand. It is a finely milled light peachy pink blush that is so beautiful and natural on the skin. I am constantly stunned by the high quality and affordability of Prestige Cosmetics.
One would think that these pretty shades would satisfy my pink blush craving, but I have a wondering eye and am always on the hunt for other beauties to join the clan.
