If you’ve been around here for a while, you all know that I love drugstore makeup. Okay, I love every kind of makeup, but I feel especially accomplished when I find a gem at the drugstore. I think many of y’all appreciate it, too, because you aren’t collectors like I am. You want great stuff and don’t want to pay a lot. You want a pretty face. I totally get it!
But that’s why I’m here. I find all the good stuff. And today we’re blabbing about blushes. There’s just something about a good blush that instantly brightens your complexion and completes your makeup look. Blushes are just so fun to collect. But what are the best drugstore blushes? Well, let’s just dive right in! I got you, girl.
Milani Baked Blush // This blush in the shade “Luminoso” is my all-time favorite drugstore blush, and in my top 5 blushes ever. It’s so gorgeous. I’m usually not a shimmery blush kind of girl, but this one leaves a beautiful finish and flush. I love the peachy color. I also have the colors “Rose D’Oro” and “Corallina.”
Milani Rose Powder Blush // Milani kills it in the blush department. These Rose blushes are matte and seriously gorgeous. You also get a lot of product, as these compacts are pretty big.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher // I’ve gotta say, this blush in “Pearlescent Pink” is an amazing every day blush that goes with so much. This one’s my second favorite on this list! I also have the color “Mellow Wine” and it’s a perfect fall berry blush.
Essence Silky Touch Blush // I was so impressed with how smooth, silky, and easy these blushes go on. They’re very pigmented, too!
L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Blush // You don’t really hear much about these blushes, but I really love the formula and finish of these blushes. I also really appreciate that they are sorted by skin color undertone. If you’re a blush newbie and not sure what color to get, this is a great place to start. Depending on whether you’re cool, neutral, or warm toned, you select a blush from those lines.
ELF Pressed Mineral Blush // I ordered this one online, and I am not sure if I see it much in the stores that sell ELF. However, this one is worth mentioning. It’s super crazy pigmented, the colors are gorgeous, and are very blendable.
ELF HD Blush // This is the most intense cream blush ever! The tiniest dot goes a long way, and it looks best applied with a stipple brush. I sometimes like to use this when I want to layer it under a more dramatic makeup look that I want to last all day. I have it in the shade “Diva” and it’s an intense hot pink!
NYX Cream Blush // Hands down, the best cream blush available at the drugstore. had to give the ladies who love cream blushes an option. I have it in “Natural,” and it’s the most perfect every day cream blush.
What’s your favorite drugstore blush? Better yet, what’s your favorite blush of all time?!
