Anyway, here are my top three picks for powder blushes.
NARS Powder Blush:
NARS blushes are really amazing. The colors are absolutely vibrant, highly pigmented, and last a long time. These blushes are so finely milled and feel rich and silky smooth to the touch. They apply perfectly, blend in so easily, and look very natural. So far, I have three NARS blush palettes, and I've been extremely impressed with every blush I've tried. They're wonderful and well worth the price point.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush:
These are some of the best powder blushes on the market (right up there with NARS). They are highly pigmented, creamy, and blend smoothly. I haven't found that they last 12 hours, but they do wear very well (about 8-10 hours) on me. I like that the packaging is colored because it makes it very easy to find the color I want to use. I have quite a few Tarte blushes, and I will definitely purchase more.
MAC Powder Blush:
I own several MAC powder blushes and like using them a lot. The texture is usually soft, smooth, and easy to blend. They come in a wide variety of vibrant, buildable, and wearable colors. They come in a variety of textures as well (matte, satin, frost, sheertone, etc.), so there is truly something for everyone. They stay on for a long time, and they don't change colors later in the day.
