The first is a blush...that falls into the red category category, and it is Bourdeaux cream blush by The All Natural Face.
It is the newest of my TANF blush collection, and the one that I have been wearing pretty much every time I wear blush at all. It is so pretty and kind of an intense burgundy color, and I was actually terrified to try it on when I first opened it. But if you use a light hand, it can be very subdues and make your cheeks look flushed. Like you were out in the cold for a while...and right now I can get that rosy glow from stepping outside, but I'd rather fake it. With this blush :) It goes on really smoothly, the same way the other TANF cream blushes do, and it stays put pretty much all day on my skin. $5.75 http://www.theallnaturalface.com
Next up is a true PURPLE, also from TANF. This beauty is Purple Passion lipstick and I AM IN LOVE WITH IT (especially with a little Petal Rebel from RAL mixed in)!

There is one downside to this lipstick shade though, as with other purple cream items from TANF, it gets a little spotty when you apply it. I'm not sure why but all of their purples do that. Other than that, wow is this lipstick gorgeous! I have totally become a huge purple lipstick addict from this baby. It is moisturizing, and doesn't have a taste or smell that I have detected, so for those who are sensitive to scents, worry not. $8.05 http://www.theallnaturalface.com
Another beautiful purple lip color, Asset from Silk Naturals, is a very well known shade in the green beauty community.
For good reason may I add!
The third and final lip color ( can you tell I am loving purple lipstick yet??) is from a newer brand to me, called Etherealle. I found them on etsy sometime last summer and ordered a 5 pc lipstick sampler. The shade that wowed me though was called Muse.
$2.95 for sample, $9.95 for full size https://www.etsy.com/shop/Etherealle
Lastly, we are going to move to a different part of the face...the eyes. The windows to your soul. The place where guys should look instead of at your boobs. Haha, This shade is from Concrete Minerals, one of my personal FAVE brands of mineral makeup, and it is called Saint.
Well thats it for my red and purple shade obsession...so far. If you have any other recommendations, I'd love to hear them!!
