On Rotation: Cheeks

There have been many days when I would sit there thinking what I would apply on my face. So, I’ve been pulling out some stuff and put them in my makeup bag so I’d just use them without thinking. Then every once in a while, I’d rotate them out for something else. For the past month or so, I’ve been using these cheek products.



blushes blushes open



The Lunasol cream blush (limited edition) is a nude that’s so neutral, it goes with everything. I’ve also been making a point to use my bronzer so here, you see Dior Aurora. It’s quite light, and on me, it’s more of a “blonzer” more than anything else. And of course, a coral blush to pick me up when I needed it. This Sculpting blush in Defining Nectars from Clinique is really pretty, and the different depth of shades in one pan simplify things.

I will be changing things up a bit once I get bored. So when I have new stuff on rotation, I’ll be sure to update. What’s in your makeup bag lately?

  • That one is called Aurora too? I thought it was only the crosshatch patterned one? I love my Aurora….gotta use it more!

    • Lily

      Yes, it’s called Aurora too! I wanted the one you’re talking about, but they didn’t carry it in our country back then. So sad. I love the pattern!

  • Emma Bovary

    Love a good blush picture like that! I’m lusting over a Dior compact like that, so damn luxe and tugs at my heartstrings for some reason!

    • Lily

      I know what you mean. Some are so pretty, it’s difficult for me to use them.

  • I have been using bronzer lately – Chocolate Soleil from Too Faced (I just have a mini). But for a while I skipped blush because i had a rash on my cheeks, lol, and blush was not helping šŸ˜›

    • Lily

      I have something from Too Faced too! It’s their heart shaped one, named after Sex in the City characters. Do you still have rashes on your cheeks? I hope it goes away soon!

  • I love the word “blonzer”! These are great picks and I cosign them all. šŸ˜‰ Lately my go-to blonzer is theBalm Balm Springs, and after 2 YEARS of dreaming, I finally bought the Burberry Cameo blush. It’s everything I’d hoped for and more! It smells so amazing and the color lasts and lasts. Like 12 hours. So pleased with it!

    • Lily

      Oooo…. you just reminded me I have Cameo too! Bought it off Liz’s blog sale. In fact, I have a total of 5 Burberry blushes, which I haven’t used much of!! I love their texture, and I really need to remember what I have. Just saying that makes me cringe. I’m absolutely guilty of hoarding, and I am changing my ways. I swear!

  • Hi Lily, I always have these grand plans to pack a makeup bag or even a small organizer with stuff that I’d like to put some love in…. but they always go out of the window the moment new stuff comes out! And I just realized that I’ve had a couple of palettes from last Holiday in my organizer that I never even touched all year!! ARGH!!!

    • Lily

      Oh gosh, I think I know what you mean. I go through my stuff pretty regularly though, and those which I haven’t touched for more than a year are given away to friends and family. Lately, I gave my mom a huge bag of goodies and she gave them to her friends. I guess she was really popular that day. LOL!

  • Oooh, that Lunasol cream blush! I’ve found a way to buy Lunasol products quite affordable, so this one goes on my list. To think about it, my stash lacks “nude” blush! ;o

    • Lily

      Oh great to hear, Lena! I haven’t been to a Lunasol counter for ages. I was obsessed with the brand once, but after a while, they all looked the same. Can’t deny there are lots of good stuff though.

  • Nice picks! I am religiously finishing up my MAC Springsheen. It’s almost done! wee haha!

    blonzer is such a cute word. I should add that in my vocabulary! haha! Take care, Lily!

    • Lily

      Wow! Using up a blush is not an easy job so well done! And yes, I think I read blonzer somewhere, can’t remember, so I can’t take the credit. But please, use it šŸ™‚
