My Favorite New Bare Escentuals Blushes

I know I have said this a million times in the last few months but Bare Escentuals has released a bunch of really awesome blushes lately. To make my case I thought I would try to list all my new favorites. I have always liked BE blushes but I hadn’t really found that many that I wanted to use often (and I have a ton of BE blushes). So it has been nice to get a bunch that I can’t get enough of. So here they are in no particular order.

1. Pink Tourmaline—technically this is not brand new it was from the Jewel kit from Ulta two Christmases ago, but I love it and haven’t stopped wearing it since I got it.

2. Optimist—this was the first one that I was really impressed with. It is not quite peach or pink and it looks really good on. I think it actually makes my face look thinner if that’s possible.

3. Irresistible—this came out first in one of the Grand collections on QVC that I didn’t get, I got it in a more recent kit. I use this blush all the time now. It is the perfect light pink.

4. Pink Petal—this is also a blush that first came out in a grand collection that I didn’t get. I got it in the Shimmer and shine kit from Sephora. So pretty!

5. Boost—This is another pink-y peach that is similar to NARS orgasm but less sparkly and I like it better. I think orgasm might be a bit pinker too.

6. TTYL—I love this blush because it is neutral. You can wear it with anything and it looks good. This was the blush from the Girlfriend collection.

7. Miracle—this blush makes you look fresh and alive. I think it is the spring version of Compassion blush. It is brighter but still gives you that pretty doll face effect that I like.

8. Chuckle—another great pink. This is from the Face Fashion pure happiness kit.

9. Avant-Garden is another great pink that goes with just about anything.

Here are some swatches of all the blushes:

Some older blushes that I really like:

Purplish Pinks: Compassion, Heaven, Posh

Neutral: Sorbet, Desert Rose

Pink: Giddy Pink, Bliss, Azalea, Rose Radiance

Peach: Vintage Peach, Morning

What are some of your favorites?


  1. Nice blush post!

    What do you think of the click lock go sifter tops on blushes? I'm not sure yet..... But when it comes to my BE products I never take off the white sticker cover but instead I poke 1 or 2 holes in them so I can tap out the product.

    I HATE when there is product lose! LOL Especially when you take a lid off of an eyeshadow and some spills out DOH!

  2. I'm not sure about the CLG sifters yet either. I kind of like them because like you I hate having lots of product above the sifter, but I worry about getting all the product out of the jar when i get to the last bits (I doubt that will ever happen with a blush but it will with founadtion). Some of the CLG sifters I have are loose and so I just leave them closed and tap and a nice sprinkle comes out and it does keep things neat, so maybe I do like them...

  3. Hello, Becky! I am a new BE addict and very new to makeup. Your blog has been very helpful and inspirational.

    My BE collection is very small, but my three favorite blushes are Glee; Naughty, Naughty; and Chestnut

  4. Thanks JuJu. I like your favorites as well. I don't have chestnut so I'll have to check that out.
