Show me your Marbles...

A week ago I received my 1st Sephora haul...Ofcourse, L.O.V.E...Some highly unaccessible brands like Tarte are finally within my reach.

I also added the Becca Beachtint in Raspberry, which got me into looking at my other marbles (=marbled blushes).
Somehow, like primary school, it feels like showing your marbles before playing a game.

1. Clio ArtBlusher in Light Brown 3: I purchased some of these minerals in 2009 and forgot about these.
2. New Cid Cosmetic Glow Mini in Sirocco
I received 2 of these Mini's as a GWP. In fact, they're both gorgeous colours, longlasting and travel friendly
3. Terra Del Sol No 4:
Once hunted these down at the German Douglas based on rave reviews. Sometimes the chase is better than the catch because I cannot remember using this one
4. Banila Co de la Couture Face blusher:
Korean know how to do BB balms but they also had a good selection of marbled blushers going on.
5. My other New Cid Cosmetic Glow mini: in Coral Crush
6. Prorance Finish Water glow in M16:
Korean & from Gmarket
7. Stila Cheek Duo in Pink Glow
8. YES, my newbie Becca Beachtint Souffle in Watermelon that spurred on the marble-post.
9. My other Clio Artblush in 2 Pink
10. Lioelle Marbling Blusher: Guess from which country? Yes??
11. SkinFood All over Muffin Cake Finish: The Koreans probably think that girls wanna smear cakemix over their face...but it makes a sweet glow for sure.

And, unlike the glassy marbtles of our youth, we can swatch these:
1. Clio ArtBlusher in Light Brown 3: Sometimes Marbles are Matte! And this colour looks like the perfect matte bronzer/shader.
 2. New Cid Cosmetic Glow Mini in Sirocco: A glowy highlighter with peach undertones
 3. Terra Del Sol No 4: Sweet, I
 4. Banila Co de la Couture Face blusher: A golden peach
 5. New Cid Cosmetic Glow mini: Sort of NARS Deep Throat dupe without the glitter

 6. Prorance Finish Water glow in M16: This colour has a slightly frosty finish in a warmer pink (peachy) glow
 7. Stila Cheek Duo in Pink Glow: Both shades are more traditional blush than mineralized finish. In both cases, they hint towards coolness with the top shade slightly bubblegum & the bottom Raspberry
 8. Becca Beachtint Souffle in Raspberry is both longlasting, well-blending and in that perfect shade of fruity pink that hints towards berry-ness.
 9.  Clio Artblush in 2 Pink: WOWZA, how did I forget about this one. A deeper pink-berry.
10. Lioelle Marbling Blusher: The funny thing about Marbled blush is that you cannot always forsee the outcome being swached. This one is highlighter whitish pink with a slight frost.
 11. SkinFood All over Muffin Cake Finish: Slightly warmer/peachier highlighter hue than Lioelle and probably a lovely blush on N 15-20 skin.

It's good to know that I had no dupe for my new Becca Beachtint Souffle (no 8). I'm also happy to rediscovered some old new vintage marbles around.

Omg, I'm so jealous of some of your pieces! I love marbleized products but own very few. I think I only have like 5 marbleized blushes but I would love more! I've been rediscovering single eyeshadows in my collection recently!
