Best of Sephora: Cheeks

Part 4 in our recap of the 2007 Best of Sephora winners! Unfortunately, this one's a real snoozer. Is anyone really surprised by the blush winner?

Blush: NARS Blush in Orgasm
Come on! This blush is more overexposed than Paris Hilton. It's a great color (I own and love it), but it isn't a miracle worker. There are other blushes out there, people! You don't have to keep parroting the words of every beauty magazine that's ever touted Orgasm as the best invention since the wheel. It's becoming the next Great Lash, way overhyped. 100,000 votes for Best of Sephora and the other nominees (including one of my favorites, Tarte Cheek Stain) didn't even stand a chance.

Bronzer: Benefit Hoola
Frankly I'm surprised they didn't just declare the Orgasm/Laguna duo the winner across both categories and be done with it! But seriously, Hoola is a worthy winner. It's shimmer-free, so you won't end up with that shiny, burnt Barbie look, and the shade is pretty neutral, neither orange nor muddy. I still have love for DuWop Bronzerush and LORAC Blush/Bronzer Duo, but Hoola is up there with the best of them!

What are your thoughts on the winners in this category? Is it time for beauty fanatics to overthrow Orgasm in a cosmetics coup?
