Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to go over some very much neglected blushes… probably so because they only cost a mere $2.50 each as a refill ($3 individual pot).  Helloooo, cheaper than a drugstore blush? And you say it’s good?  Heck yeah, but it’s not just good, it is undoubtably awesome.  I find that they are even better than the department store blushes…

Here is my stash…

Isn’t this just a purrdy sight?  Makeup Porn at it’s best.  (Don’t worry there’s more coming, hehehe).  As you can see, I have it in a Make Up For Ever Metal Palette… it holds 24 La Femme Blushes (which means I have plenty of room for more ;op  ).    BTW, the La Femme blushes DO NOT fit into the regular MUFE palette with the dividers that you can get from MUFE directly or from Sephora.  I have it, I tried, and it does not fit… the blushes were just slightly too big to fit in the wells.

Where I purchased the blush refills from, they also have an empty 12-well palette available for purchase and also something that they call “The Palette Lab” where you ‘create your own Palette: Your Palette pattern will be transmitted directly to our warehouse where little Palette elves will put it together exactly the way you want it! (Okay – how cool is that?!?!).Have fun and happy Palette-making!’ (excerpt from MakeUpMania website).  I don’t know about the elves, but I’ve had great customer service from them.

I decided to order from MakeUpMania.com since they had the largest available selection and also I combined it with other items purchased for my kit (they were the cheaper alternative for me compared to CameraReadyCosmetics).  I decided to skip the much ordered and raved-about Palette Lab with the lil’ elves and ordered just the refills so that I could put them in any palette that I wanted.

I think I first heard about these blushes from Goss Makeup Artist and I was soooo sold.  Yup, I AM that easy… LOL.  Now for the hard part… choosing the colors that I want/need from an astounding selection of colors and finishes.  Let the research begin.  I need to get some colors that would work from the lightest to the darkest of skin tones.  For this I relied on some of my youtube subscriptions.  As a jump-off base, Goss Makeup Artist.  For the lightest of skin tones, Tildzbox.  For darker/african american skin tones, Destiny Godley and Coloured Beautiful.   These are some great youtubers people, so if you don’t follow them, what are you waiting for??? Don’t worry, I will still be here when you come back from subscribing to ALL of them.

Ok, now that you are back, lets get these swatches started…

Toodles until next time…
