Top 5 Under 5- Summer Blush

Summer is well under way and I find myself craving bright and wonderful colours. Eye, lips and cheeks.
I've been loving mixing up what I use on my face, specifically my blush so I thought I'd share with you what has been giving me a flush of colour this summer- aside from the heat!

Budget summer Blush

budget summer blush swatches

1) Makeup Revolution Baked Blush in Bang Bang you're dead- This is a lovely light, cool toned pink shade with lots of nice shimmer. It's like an innocent glow and best of all- it's £2.50

2) Elf Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky- This is a very light peachy shimmery blush with veins of a darker colour, I had actually forgotten about it until recently. It's nice to warm up the cheeks, not go too OTT and give a lovely glow. This comes in at £3.95 but I got it in a 50% sale so it's even better!

3) Sleek Blush in Flamingo- this is a very vibrant bright pink colour with some shimmer. When I first put this on I was like woah jebus hand me the foundation brush but it blends in really nicely. 1 tip- use a light hand and it's only £4.49

4) Sleek Blush in Rose Gold- This is a bit of a cult favourite and noted as a dupe for Nars orgasm I believe, I don't have orgasm (teehee) so I can't compare. It's a lovely pinky coral with tonnes of golden, almost orange shimmer- jeepers that's a lot of colours! I think this would be perfect with a tan and again it's on £4.49

5) MUA Blush in Lolly- A blooming steal at £1. It's a nice bright, alsmost sherbet orange blush with not much real visible glitter/shimmer but gives a lovely sheen to the cheeks and is nice with a tan. It looks a wee bit darker in this swatch because of the light but you can see in the top pic how lovely it is!

So that's my roundup of my fave summer blushes- did you sense a theme? I love a good glow haha! What are you loving for summer?
