Autumn Edit: Blushes

Hello! I have returned with another post in my Autumnal makeup feature, and today I have a little selection of autumnal blushes!





 Sleek blush in Pomegranate: I LOVE this colour, it is so gorgeous, and so A/W appropriate. I don't quite feel like this is the right sort of colour to wear in the spring or summer, because it's quite deep and plummy, but I've been waiting for the Autumn to crack this one out, I think the colour just screams Autumn! I know that NARS do a similar shade to this, although I'm not sure what it's called, but why buy the expensive one when you can have the cheaper (and great quality) version!


 Sleek blush in Flushed: another lovely deep, rich, autumnal colour from sleek, this is more of a red than the last one, but it's not a bright red, more of a brick sort of colour I suppose. And this is such a lovely colour, it's just so rich! Again, I've been saving this one to wear during the colder months, so I'm excited they're finally here!!





 Sleek blush by 3 palette in Sugar: can you see the cheeky swatch I've made on the middle shade (muscovado)? I think this is an absolutely perfect trio for autumn, you've got a lovely plummy red, it looks like a mixture of the two blushes above. A shimmery burgundy, and a terracotta. All three shades are such rich, autumny colours, they just remind me of the colours of falling leaves or something, I haven't had a proper chance to try this out yet, I got it when they were first released in the summer because I knew this would be great come the autumn, so I will be reporting how this one goes!!
Jelly pong pong jelly flush: I absolutely love this one, it's more of a stain than your typical powder blush, but I love that it's different, I hardly ever some across push-up stick blushes like this! It's a really lovely soft glowy red colour, it gives you the sort of glow you'd get from a walk on a lovely crisp autumn day. I think jelly pong pong are currently in the process of rebranding to "so susan" so if you were interested in this but couldn't find jelly pong pong, just try looking for so susan instead! 

What are your favourite autumn blush picks? Do you have any of these blushes?
