When it comes to the spring, I either go to the bright blushes (which I already posted about here), or the natural looking, barely there shades that I can sweep on in a matter of seconds, and those are what I'll be sharing today, featuring an old favourite and a new addition.

The golden oldie is the Dainty Doll Cream Blush in Paper Roses, a pale pink with a hint of silver shimmer, and whenever I slap this one on my cheeks (read: gently tap on and blend with a brush), I always seem to get compliments and questions on my cheek colour, which makes this one an instant winner.

The new love is the Rimmel Mono Blush in Santa Rose, which is slightly more peachy so is less noticeable on the cheeks. This is a firm blogger favourite, and I can tell why. Its slightly shimmery, natural toned, and adds a light flush to the cheeks, and using the contour brush to just focus is on certain areas of the cheeks is my way to go about using this one.

2 blushes, 2 brushes, and the perfect no frills cheeks...


  1. Love this post - been dying to try some of the Daint Doll products - blushes especially - and this also reminds me to pick up the Rimmel blush, for whatever reason, I'm yet to purchase it!

  2. I haven't tried anything from Dainty Doll but this blusher looks so pretty! Definitely going to keep an eye out for it! :) x

  3. I've been eyeing up the nars doucer blush which I think is along the same lines as these, sometimes if you want a smokey eye it looks better to have a subtle blush. Great post.

  9. I've been hoping to try Santa Rose! I've heard quite a bit about it recently and it's so affordable that I should just give it a go. I recently purchased NARS Douceur and that's definitely one of those minimal, natural looking blushes. xx
