Favorites: Coral Blushes

This summer beauty is all about bright color, bold trends, a sexy summer glow and so much more.Coral is a major color trend for this summer as always.I have just recently become interested in coral cheeks, to be honest it's not a colour I even thought of as something I could wear, but to my surprise it looks good on medium dark or NC30-35 skin tone.
I own many blushes,I cant stop buying more , God help me.I planned to write this post a month ago but I was waiting for a package to arrive so i could add those coral blushes to the list. It was dispatched on June 15 from USA via USPS priority mail. 
Lets hope i get it as it contains many interesting items.

So here are some of my Coral / Orange blushes and their swatches :)

1- Korres ZEA MAYS Powder Blush 44 Orange: Orange shade might seem scary to most of you but It is such a beautiful and  bright yet natural and a unique shade that can be worn everyday.Its deep coral.
2-Korres ZEA MAYS Powder Blush 45 Coral It is an almost pinky -peach that is very flattering on medium dark skin tone.It does have with slight shimmer.
3- Illamasqua Expose :is such a beautiful coral shade(although illamasqua described it as terracotta), It brings gorgeous warmth to the face.
