Budget Blushers

Budget Blushers featuring Natural Collection Blush in Sweet Cheeks, ELF Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky, Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender and Maxfactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink

While there’s some makeup products worth spending more money on, blusher isn’t one of them.  You can easily find a great quality blush at the drugstores with many colour choices and finishes to choose from.  My favourite shades to buy are very soft pinks which give a sort of glowing from within effect to waken up my dull looking skin.  Here’s some of my favourites from the drugstore, all under £10.

Whenever I’m in Boots, I can’t resist picking up a new Natural Collection Blush.  Usually my colour choice is Peach Melba but everytime I visit it’s always out of stock.  Luckily all of the colours are quite similar so the shade Sweet Cheeks does the job.  The finish is usually matte so they’re perfect for everyday wear and if you ever see me, it’s usually what I have on.  They’re only £1.99 each but I always stock up when the 3 for 2 offer is on, it would be rude not to!

It’s been a while since I tried a few ELF products but the ELF Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky* has really impressed me lately.  I think their prices have went up a little as it costs £3.75 but it has a whopping 6g of product so it’s definitely worth the money considering a typical Nars blush has 4.8g.  It’s on the shimmery side and has a sort of rose gold finish to it which is lovely.  You could also double it up as a highlighter too so it’s worth checking out if you want a multi-purpose product.

From the cream blusher side, we have the Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender* which has completely changed my opinion on cream blushers, I love it!  It’s your classic soft pink shade which looks lovely on everyone and has a tiny bit of shimmer to brighten up your face.  The cream to powder formula makes it a lot easier to apply and gives you the most gorgeous inner glow.  A little more expensive at £7.99 but will last you ages!

I’m still undecided on how I feel about creamy finish blushers but I’ve been giving the MaxFactor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in Soft Pink a try.  If you want a very pigmented colour, look no further.  It applies very bold but once you blend it out it looks much softer on the skin.  Although I prefer a powder finish I really enjoy experimenting with it.  It may look tiny for £6.99 but for the pigmentation it’s definitely worth it.

There’s plenty of budget blushers to choose from in the drugstore and if you have any other recommendations I’d love to know.  To balance everything out, I’ve also written a post on my high end blushers so make sure to check back on Wednesday to see what they are.
