Blush

Clockwise from left:

Nars powder blush in Orgasm ($30, narscosmetics.com) has already achieved star status, which our testers considered justified. The fusion of cool pink and warm peach, with the slightest hint of golden shimmer, gave everyone’s cheeks a natural flush. “The light-reflecting particles diffuse the color, so it doesn’t come on too strong,” says Carmindy. Said one fair-skinned tester, “It didn’t overpower my skin or make me look clownish.”

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Nectar ($24, elizabetharden.com) had universal appeal, thanks to its blendability. “I could make it so sheer that my skin’s coloring came through,” said an olive-toned tester.

Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in Petal/RD103 ($30, shiseido.com) has a touch of brown, “so it looks like your skin would with a tan,” says Carmindy. Testers also liked the smooth texture and the buildable, slightly translucent formula.
