Comparison Swatch: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed vs. Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in 5

Comparison pics! I like these because it prevents me from buying dupey things. :) 
I'm comparing two good everyday blushes. :) GA 5 and Tarte Exposed.
In natural light
As you can see, exposed is more red. And it pulls even more red on my cheeks. I know it doesn't do this for everyone so as with anything ymmv. :)
I recall a blogger calling GA 5 "violet beige" and I agree with that description. On me, it doesn't swatch or wear as brown as it looks in the pan. :) Super wearable nude blush, and it's one of my favorites.

 GA texture is far superior, the color (without red) is more flattering on me, so I recommend GA 5 between the two. GA 5 is especially good because you don't have to be particularly careful with the application. Nicely sheer. :) But if you prefer a more obvious block of color and don't mind the reddish tinge, Exposed is good too. It was well used when it was one of the two blushes I had (oh gosh...) but I don't have it anymore. I was just not reaching for it over other blushes like GA 5. Hope this helps. :)

Hi all! I am finally back. I thought I would ease my way back in by starting with rather simple posts. I also plan on being less wordy from now on. Lol.

Comparison Review: MAC Blacktrack Fluidline and Wet 'n' Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyelienr

Another comparison review time! I am going to review the popular MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and mad affordable Wet 'n' Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyelienr. The result of the wear test (aka having MAC on one eye and Wet 'n' Wild on the other and swapping the next day) was quite surprising. It was opposite of the impression of each product as I wore them by themselves. Anyhow, more of that to come later.

First off, hoot for deluxe sample sizes. :D Benefit High Beam and NARS Illuminator in Copacabana are both liquid highlighter/illuminator. I thought I would keep things simple and try using a table. lol
