Top 4 Drugstore Blushers

Blush is probably one of my favourite steps in my makeup routine. It sort of ties the whole makeup look together in my opinion. Just by adding a hint of flush and colour to the cheeks gives that youthful healthy look to the complexion. Being a huge blush lover is was hard to narrow it down to just four but these are the ones which we reach for most of the time and are probably our all time favourite drugstore blushers.

When Maxfactor came out with these beauties, there was no doubt that these blushes just had to be an addition to the makeup collection. Packaging wise, Maxfactor have got it spot on. Sleek, compact packaging with a gold rim on the edges - more than enough to draw me in. I love the shade range that they have which are suited to different skin tones. My favourite has the be the shade gorgeous berries, which is exactly what it says on the tin -gorgeous! It is a deep purple shade with a very slight hint of gold shimmer running throughout it, which gives an instant summery glow to the skin. These blushes remind me a little of the Milani baked blushes in appearance which I am yet to try.

Hunting down for a good drugstore matte blush can be pretty difficult as the formula may not be right or the shade range is pretty disappointing. However these Nyx blushes are just perfect in formula and when it come to application (You can also read about it here). This particular shade is just perfect as it gives that natural flush to cheeks which is so wearable on an everyday basis. Basically a 'your-cheeks-but-better' (kinda of a cliche but its so true). This a definite staple to add to the makeup collection.

Mineral makeup can often be a pain to deal with, loose powder falling over everywhere can be stressful especially when you're in a rush but I like to save this one for those not-in-such-a-rush days. Normally in not a huge fan of this sort of packaging but this blush has to be an exception because this product is too good to give a miss. (You can read more about it here). We've both been using this for years now, but our heart sank a little when we found out that it is sadly discontinued :( So the hunt begins for a dupe for the No7 mineral blush, let us know in the comments if have any recommendations. 

Cream products are great for the summer and spring months as it gives a very fresh faced dewy look to the skin and it is great for those minimal makeup days. Some cream blushes that I've tried have been quite disappointing as they haven't been creamy enough to distribute evenly on the skin or have been a little too slippery which last barely an hour on the face. This formula however is soo dreamy, I instantly fell in love with it. This colour pay off is perfect giving the right amount of pigmentation on the skin and this coral shade in particular looks amazing on so many skin tones being not too bright but more of a deep coral colour.
