I have quite a few blushes, but I don't really like wearing them (though I do, of course). My cheeks tend to be quite red, especially at work where our air conditioning is sucktacular, and I feel like they don't need any help in this regard. It seems weird to me that I make every attempt to disguise the redness with green concealers and full coverage foundation, and then put it back on top again. For that reason, I have an extremely light hand when it comes to blush - just a teensy dab and I'm good to go.
I had MAC Honour shoved away in a drawer because I thought it was boring, and also because I'm a little bit afraid of brown on my face (the reason I never use bronzer or do any kind of contouring). However, I pulled it out about a month ago when I was just starting my "shopping my stash" bizzo, and had decided to give every product at least one airing.
Well, since then I've been wearing this almost every day, and I just love it. It's quite a sheer light beige with a subtle gold shimmer, and it gives just enough colour to make me look alive, but not at all red. I don't know why it took me so long to discover this; I've had it for AGES.
It was IMPOSSIBLE to get a good swatch of this - this was the best I could do, I'm afraid, and it doesn't do it justice at all. One thing I wonder about is why "honour" is spelled in the English (and also Australian) way, and not the US way. That seems weird to me.
But anyway, two thumbs up! This blush is great, and it has inspired me to go digging around in my makeup collection for more forgotten treasures.
