Blush: No Embarassment Required

It can be pretty hard to keep from blushing. This natural reaction to embarrassment ranges from cute to uncontrollable, and can be especially humiliating when trying to keep your cool, whether its after finding toilet paper stuck to the bottom of your strappy heels or catching sight of your crush at the mall.

When blushing is desired, it can be quite hard to achieve a natural look. What everyone wants is a little bit of rosy color, that just-stepped-in-from-the-cold-and-now-I'm-going-to-warm-myself-by-the-toasty-fire look.

What I have found is that most powder blushes produce a chalky, powdery look. The most natural and longest lasting product I've ever tried is the Benefit Benetint Pocket Pal. This product has already earned valuable space in my purse that is reserved only for the essentials. The double ended design is very smart, a red stain on one side and a shiny, clear gloss on the other side: double duty. Although it looks harsh and bright in the bottle, Benetint delivers a rosy glow that looks lit from within, and lasts all day long. The stain also looks lovely on the lips, an excellent alternative to red lipstick. Layering the red stain with the clear gloss on my lips also made my teeth look whiter, an added bonus.

With an all-day flush, they will never know when you really are embarrassed.
