Blush Challenge – Lucy Minerals Juicy Peach

Day 1 of my attempt to try a new blush in my inventory everyday.

I got this blush a few months ago but hadn’t yet tried it until today. There were some raves for this blush at Mineral Makeup Forums,so I ordered it with one of Lucy Minerals‘ amazing stock-up specials.

Juicy Peach ingredients

This is a sheer peachy color with a hint of sparkle.

Juicy Peach swatch

Juicy Peach is so pretty. The color is sheer, so it’s great for me since I tend to have a heavy hand. You can layer it for more intensity, but even just a quick sweep gives you a nice peachy glow. I really like this and will keep it in regular rotation now.

Blush inventory

How many blushes do I actually have?
I decided to count and the answer was obviously too many.

blush inventory

The total came to 44 items, a few dupes, mostly of Everyday Minerals. Ah, the heady days of the free sample kits.

I’m going to set myself a Blush Challenge. For the month of November, I’m going to use a different blush every day. That will take me into December too, and by the end of this challenge I will have a good idea of what to keep and what to get rid of.


Today’s workout – P90X Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps and butterscotch protein shake

I did this workout at home today, because I would be ashamed for people at the gym to see me fall flat on my face while attempting plyo push-ups. Although I managed 10 today! (on my knees) That’s the most I’ve ever been able to do.

I worked so hard today I wasn’t even thrown off when Tony Horton kept calling this guy by the wrong name.

Dave, David, Davey, anything, even Sean

Today’s protein shake:

  • 1/2 Trader Joe’s fat-free cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop CrioSport 100% Whey in vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons sugar-free butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum
  • however much water fits in the Magic Bullet canister

I gave the canister a good shake and blended it up on the Magic Bullet. 277 calories, 2.5 grams fat, 12.7 grams carbs, 41 grams protein. I could probably get regular cottage cheese to add in some fat.

Butterscotch Protein Shake


Very tasty! Just like a regular butterscotch milkshake (almost)
