This might sound totally weird, but my favorite blush right now is Clarins's delicious-smelling Rouge Prodige ($24). Why lipstick as blush? I've got dry skin, so moisturizing lipstick formulas don't desiccate my skin like powder blushes, and long-wearing versions deliver the kind of lasting color usually only available from cheek stains. Plus, you only have to buy one product instead of two coordinating shades. The color I've been using, Red Prodige, is a nice primary red that will work on most skin tones, and it delivers a sheer, natural-looking wash of cheek color that's very blendable. Plus, this stuff smells like rainbow sherbet, and your kisses will be memorably sweet. It's not a cheap product by any stretch of the imagination, but as a combo deal I'm extremely fond of it. If you've got dry skin and you're willing to experiment, it comes highly recommended.
