Blush: Reality TV For Make-Up Artists

Okay…so ummm..I’m not so into this show. Blush is a yet another reality show for makeup artists. They compete for $100,000, a magazine cover, yada yada yada. I heard about it from various friends and family, and I really, really wanted to like this show, but it’s cheap, corny, and just boring. Before I totally give it the boot, I’ll watch a few more episodes. What do you think? If you haven’t seen it, check out Lifetime on Tuesdays at 10pm.
