Coral Blushes: Sleek Pan Tao, MAC My Highland Honey, Illamasqua Lover


Photobucket

Hello everyone! I was finally able to get my hands on Sleek Pan Tao blush from their peach Avoir La Peche Collection. Its a 3 item collection with this blush, an eyeshadow palette and a lip balm, and I'm happy to own all 3! I just love anything peach-toned as I feel as though it flatters my warm yellow skin without looking like I'm wearing too much makeup. In this post I've compared it to MAC My Highland Honey blush and Illamasqua Lover Blush (which will be in the following pictures). I hope this post will be useful! ♥

Sleek Pan Tao is a matte medium coral. It looks very bright on the pan, but it swatches bright too (no problems with pigmentation there!). I would recommend using a duo-fibre brush (such as the MAC 188 or Sigma alternative), which picks up a little amount of colour at a time, and then building colour from there for lighter skins.

Looking at Sleek Pan Tao, MAC My Highland Honey and Illamasqua Lover in their pots, it looks as though Pan Tao is definitely darker than the both, which are similar to each other.

Swatched however, Pan Tao is just a shade darker than Lover, and My Highland Honey is much much lighter and yellower than either of them.

Out of the three though, Lover is still my favourite as it has that 'brightening' effect. I suppose its because of Lover has more pinker tones than the both of them, but still coral.

Do you tend to wear pinks or peaches for blush? :)
And if you could add, what's your favourite blush ever? I'd like to know incase I might be able to check it out! :) xx
