To carry on from my favourite Coral Lipsticks post I thought I would share my favourite coral blushes with you.

Bobbi Brown ' Coral' is a rich pinky coral shade with a tiny hint of shimmer that catches the light on the cheeks. Perfect for everyday wear and a variety of make up looks

Sleek Blush by 3 in 'Lace' contains some gorgeous shades of orange and coral, all highly pigmented and fantastic value for money.
'Chantilly' is a warm peachy orange shade, which in the pan can look quite scary but when blended out looks stunning on the skin. 
'Guipure' is a Nars Orgasm dupe. A pinky coral shade with gold shimmer running through it. This, like its high end dupe looks stunning on the skin, catching the light in all the right places.
'Crochet' is more of a burnt orangey red shade that delivers a natural flush to the skin and suitable more most skin tones ( pale skinned girls need to use a light hand).

Laura Mercier 'Lush Nectarine' is a light peachy coral in a satin finish which looks natural on the skin, just reflecting the light slightly to cast a sheen over the cheeks. This is my most worn blush and I wear it all year round to add some life into my skin.

George Crème Blush ' Coral'* is a dewy finish as oppose to a crème to powder blush, which adds a healthy glow to the cheeks in the form of a deep pinky coral. It looks very natural on the skin and warms up the complexion to give a beautiful pinky flush to the cheeks. (Full review with swatches here)
