We all know that summer is dominated by shades of coral, so this first pick is a bit of an obvious one, but boy is it a good one. Benefit's CORALista is the ultimate summer shade; a perfect coral with slight pink undertones and a shimmer that gives you that post-holiday glow. Oh, and not to mention the gorgeous packing it comes in... all boxes ticked? I thought so. Next up is the newest blush to my collection, Clarin's Spring 2013 blush. Although no longer easy to get a hold of, this is the bee knees when it comes to a matte peach shade. A quick sweep of this over your cheeks and your good to go with a natural peach flush. Another offering from Benefit in the line up is their Bella Bamba blush, and not just for the cute name. A shimmering pink with peach undertones gives a warmer pop of colour to your cheeks but with added glow. Finally, probably the most eye catching one of them all - MAC's Ripe Peach. There is just something about the ombre effect, isn't there? Still a peach shade but definitely more on the orange side, this blush definitely adds a pop of colour to any make up look. Another limited edition shade, but fear not as Estee Lauder have a pretty similar offering in Peach Nuance if you can find one at your local counter...
So there is a whole lot of peachy pink goodness for you to feast your eyes on, but in my opinion Benefit's CORALista wins first place.
