We have never heard anyone say that one kind of blush is enough! Yes, there are several kinds of blush available in the market today, and while one always has their favourites, we thought of curating a mini edit of the most amazing options that you can’t not have in your make-up bag. From technologically-advanced formulas to multi-taskers, these babies make a compelling case for going on that li’l spendthrift to ensure you have the right pick for every occasion.
The Fuss-Free Formula
Elizabeth Arden Cool Glow Cheek Blush
It blends seamlessly and creates a luminous, healthy looking glow without disrupting the makeup underneath.
Elizabeth Arden is known to create technologically-advanced formulas that look and feel amazing. This water-based, cool-to-the-touch gel blush is perfect for when you want a natural flush of colour. It sculpts and defines cheeks with a sheer finish. What’s amazing is that it is housed in a netted pot delivery system designed to release the perfect amount of product for each application.
Whipped Cream for the Win
Shiseido Minimalist WhippedPowder Blush
Use sparingly to create a natural flush and you can always layer to build intensity.
Okay, this has got to be the coolest blush E.V.E.R! Formulated with AirFusion Technology, which are basically micro bubbles of air, this blush is literally weightless. The air-whipped cream blush transforms into a breathable, long-lasting powder with a soft matte finish, and is super-easy to blend. The formula also boasts of flexible silicone powder, which creates a silky texture that never looks dry.Promising to stay put for eight hours (yes!), this blush is available in six shades inspired by Shiseido’s muses and collaborators of the past and present. Pro tip: when it comes to blush, a little goes a long way.
Oh Hello, Multi-Tasker!
The Body Shop Lip And Cheek Stain
If you’re feeling adventurous, dab a little on your lids for a matchy-matchy vibe.
We are all partial to formulas that work hard and can be used in various ways...because, let’s face it, they don’t just make it easy (and quick) to achieve the desired look, but also save a lot of space in our make-up bag. This liquid stain offers buildable coverage and leaves a natural pop of colour on your lips and cheeks. You can use it under lip gloss for a glorious pout and dab onto cheeks for a rosy glow.
The Timeless Formula
The Balm Cabana Boy Shadow And Blush
Promising a silky texture, this shadow and blush is a talc- and paraben-free formula.
Super-cute packaging aside, this formula is excellent for when you want to make a statement. The finely-graded powder provides an even and smooth finish, while the subtle shimmer particles catch the light and reflect an ethereal glow that looks incredibly natural. The shade is timeless and can be used during both day and night.
