Monday beauty & what "look" to wear to my birthday party
Readers' Favorite Blushes

Was Nars Orgasm blush no. 1? Or did another blush beat it? Find out!

A good blush gives a lit-from-within, healthy-looking glow, something we all strive for with our makeup. A bad blush gives a streaky, sparkly, clownish look -- not attractive. Luckily, readers have tried tons of blushes, and here we share their favorites. Give them a try, they guarantee you wont look like you're auditioning for the circus.

No. 19: Paula Dorf Cheek Color, $21 average reader rating: 9

It "was perfect for that just-in-from-the-cold flush" and the blushes "last all day."

No. 18: Clinique Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher, $18.50 average reader rating: 9

Readers say this blush is "very natural looking... it's nearly impossible to make yourself look clownish with it."

No. 17: Revlon Powder Blush, $9.79 average reader rating: 9.1

This blush's greatest asset: its staying power. "I apply it at 5 a.m. and it still looks great at 8 p.m.," one reader says.

On a more personal note, I'm planning what to wear makeup wise for my birthday. Now I have several parties to go to, but I want each look to be different. I almost always wear the demi wispy lashes, but I'm thinking something bigger?
Post a look if you have one you want me to try!
