A Touch of Blusher is eleven years old today!

In recent months, I have been thinking about how my tastes in makeup have (or haven’t) changed since I started my blog. With eyeshadows, I have always liked purples and warm neutrals. However, with blushers, I have become far more adventurous with different colors, finishes and pigmentation levels. In terms of beauty brands, I definitely still love many of the brands I wrote about eleven years ago (such as Lunasol, Jill Stuart, Paul & Joe and SUQQU).

Over the years, my blog has become a record of my own likes and dislikes in beauty, and I thank you all for reading my blog and sharing my passion!

Once again, let’s look back at the last 12 months of A Touch of Blusher:

November 2016: Albion celebrated its 60th anniversary.

December: THREE renewed its loose-powder eyeshadow range in spring 2017.

January 2017: We finally got to see a new seasonal makeup collection from Ayura.

February: Paul & Joe celebrated its beauty line’s 15th anniversary.

March: Jill Stuart launched a new blusher range in summer 2017.

April: I shared my thoughts on my first purchase from Sweets Sweets.

May: I (finally) reviewed Les Merveilleuses de Ladurée’s Face Color Rose Ladurée in 02.

June: Kanebo Twany’s Lara Bouquet made its debut.

July: I reviewed Addiction’s Blush in 04 Amazing.

August: Deep red and sheer blue are the on-trend shades in fall 2017.

September: I focused on Japanese beauty brand Celvoke.

October: Cosme Decorte was launched in the UK.

Thank you all very much once again, and I hope that you will enjoy reading my upcoming posts!

Congratulations! I’m still keeping an eye on the pulse, as it were, seeing as you are the only blog out there I know of that still focuses on Asian/Japanese brands :D I do think our tastes change along the way, but there will always be some things that never change, like our love for beauty ;)

Hi Paris,

Thank you very much! :) This blog has always been of a personal nature from the beginning, as I tend to focus on the brands, products and topics which I am interested in. Indeed, over the years, my tastes in beauty have changed, but, like what you said, I think I will always feel passionate about beauty! :)
