March Favorites Day 5- Matte Blushes
Favorite Matte Blush (high-end):
Lorac Color Source Buildable Blush ($23)
You can tell just by looking at the swatches how smooth and soft these are! They go on a little sheerer when applied with a brush (finger swatches make them look deeper than they really are) and the shade range is just gorgeous. As a pale-skinned girl, my favorite shades to wear are Tinge, Prism, and Spectra...they're all stunning. These slightly edged out my second favorite high-end matte blushes which are from The Balm (those are amazing too) because they're just so easy to work with.

Favorite Matte Blush (drugstore):
City Color Be Matte Blush ($3.99)
I discovered these years ago and they're still my favorite affordable matte blushes! Like the Lorac ones, these are highly pigmented but blend really nicely on your cheeks. Plus the pans are huge and they're an absolute steal at just under $4. My favorite shades to wear are Papaya, Guava, and Blackberry, and Toasted Coconut is a fabulous matte bronzer for fair to light skin tones.
