What's your number, blush baby?

Hellooo ladies!

Sometime last year, I did a post asking all you lovely ladies to get counting on the number of lippies you have. And boy, did we get good feedback on it. =P

So today, we're going to continue with the mathwork here - but on blushers instead. My pet subject. Oh boy oh boy oh boy. *grin*

In my daily makeup routine, blush is the one essential item I cannot do without. I may be in a blurry haze flying out the door (because we all know that that five minutes of extra sleep is necessary), and there will only be time for the very bare minimum makeup. But blush will be there.

Blush, applied well, can do a myriad of magic tricks. It can make your face look slimmer, brighter, it can give you an amazing complexion (nevermind if you haven't had any decent sleep in months), and it can make you look like you're in the pink of health. Nevermind again that you might have been having that flu bug since who-knows-when.

Put on that blush, and you'll be glowing like no tomorrow. Talk about faking it.

So anyhoo, I've since gotten counting to see how many blushers I've somehow accumulated over the last couple of years. It's always good to do some stock-keeping, no?

And the total tally freaked even me out. A little bit. My number's a big fat round 8-0.

Including bronzers, mineral blushers (which was a mere 3, I think) and those included in palettes. (So THAT's where all my money went...*gulp* )

So spit it out. What's your number?

Oh, and I think my number is about 10? But a good half are mineral samples.

All Women Stalker said...

I don't think anyone can top your 80 blushes! LOL. I have less than 10, and one is even a cheek stain that I can't leave the house without. But I agree that a blush can certainly make a face healthier-looking and blooming :)

kuri said...

I think I have 7 or 8 at the moment. 80 would be fun! But I barely use my 7 or 8 as it is :P

Lavender said...

I have less than 10. Do u want to sell some?

Meldee said...

I'd ask you to prove it, but since I've actually seen this famed blush collection for myself, I will hold my peace.

I have...um...5. Whoopee. And 4 stains.

Yani said...

80 is a staggering number! You ARE the quintessential blush queen!

michelle said...

I have 3, including one is nearly finished and another one which you gave lol....

Syen said...

Hello girls! Sorry for the late reply. Was away on a short trip to Hong Kong with Kahani and had only gotten home very late last night.

Thank you all for your comments. And yes, 80 IS an insane number, no? I don't quite believe it myself, but I did count.

*shivers*

Haven't thought of selling any, since all are unique in their own way. But if I ever do, will let you know. =P

(I'll keep to blush princess. I've seen ParisB's collection and I'm quite sure it's STILL bigger than mine. *all hail Blush Queen* tee hee)

Connie De Alwis said...

Kahani said...

81 now thanks to Nars Torrid. *grins*

Maybe I should add a "Syen's Blush Counter" to the site...
