Blush on a Budget!

Blush on a Budget

Here is my second “…on a Budget!” post. Today I will be listing my favorite drugstore blushes. These blushes are very comparable to high-end blushes and in my opinion in some cases they are better.

Each of these products can be found at your local Wal-Mart, Target, CVS and Ulta (drugstore section).

So let’s begin…


Milani Baked Blush $7 – These blushes are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! They come in 7 different shades- Bellissimo Bronze, Berry Amore,  Corallina, Dolce Pink, Fantastico Mauve, Luminoso, Red Vino and Rose D’oro. These blushes are highly pigmented and give a radiant glow. They have great staying power as well. All of these shades are great, but my favorite has to be Luminoso. It is a definite must-have!


Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush $7 – This blush comes in 10 shades- Fresh Pink 05, Pink Frosting 10, Rose Petal 15, Peach Satin 20, Candy Coral 30, Pink Plum 40, Orchid Hush 45, Plum Wine 50, Coffee Cake 60 and Hot Tamale 70. This is a great blush, it has a very unique texture- it is a powder gel formula. This blush is great for a very natural flushed look. It provides a very sheer color, but is definitely buildable to achieve the perfect color.


e.l.f Studio HD Blush $3 – I love this blush. This blush was also on my list for my most loved e.l.f products which you can read more here. This blush comes in 5 shades- Headliner, Superstar, Diva, Encore and Showstopper. This blush is very pigmented and lasts all day long. It is very creamy and gives a gives a very flushed look. Best thing about it is it is only $3. Such a steal!


Nyx Powder Blush $6 – This blush comes is 12 shades – Mocha, Peach, Terra Cotta, Pinched, Dusty Rose, Cinnamon, Desert Rose, Rose Garden, Summer Peach, Bourgeois Pig, Amber and Mauve. I love the way this product feels- the powder is super silky and goes on so smooth. It has great pigmentation and stays on all day. The best thing about this blush is that it comes in so many different shades- everything from a deep red, light pink to a peach color.


L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Blush $9 – This blush is really one of a kind. This is a natural blush that is formulated to complement your skin tone and undertone perfectly. With this product, you really get the most natural flush of color. This blush is also great because it also helps to hide blemishes and imperfections. This blush comes in 12 shades- Apricot Kiss, Baby Blossom, Bare Honey, Barely Blushing, Innocent Flush, Precious Peach, Rosy Outlook, Soft Sun, Spiced Plum, Subtle Sable, Sweet Ginger and Tender Rose.

Have you tried any of these blushes? I would love to hear your thoughts on these!
