MAC Salsarose and Frankly Scarlet Blushes
Bright blushes might look a little intimidating to those who aren’t very comfortable with color, but you can really use any blush and make it look natural by using the smallest amount. Two of my favorite bright blushes are MAC Frankly Scarlet and MAC Salsarose. Both are extremely similar raspberry shades, with Frankly Scarlet being slightly more red, and Salsarose being slighlty more pink. Swatched heavy, you can see the difference, but swatched lightly you can barely tell them apart. The lovely thing about shades like this, is when applied lightly to the face, the color is very reminiscent of the actual reddish hue your face will naturally turn when you blush.

Frankly Scarlet is a permanent MAC shade, whereas Salsarose is a PRO shade and can only be purchased at a MAC Pro store or ordered by phone at 1-800-866-6464 (for US orders). (See more information about PRO products here) MAC Dollymix is another favorite of mine, but I actually lost mine, and I’m going to have to purchase another one pretty soon.
Some other brights that are on my wish list are: MAC Devil (Pro), MAC Full Fuchsia (Pro), Nars Rhubarb (Pro), Nars Exhibit A, Nars Taj Mahal, NYX Hot Pink & NYX Red Cheeks.
