IMO, the saying “you get what you pay for” is true 99 percent of the time—except when it comes to makeup, specifically drugstore blush.

Seriously, when you’re using the best of the best the drugstore has to offer, you’re getting bright and blendable pigments that apply like butter and last all day. So save yourself the $$ next time you’re in the market for a new blush and try one of these 12 best drugstore blushes that are not only less than $20, but will also give your skin the most gorgeous, natural-looking glow.

Best Drugstore Blush for Dry Skin

Burt’s Bees Color Nurture Moisturizing Cream Blush

Made with 99 percent natural ingredients, including nourishing coconut oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E, this creamy blush gives you a soft, realistic flush while also moisturizing your face, making it the perfect option for dry skin types.

Best Long-Lasting Drugstore Blush

E.l.f. Cosmetics Primer-Infused Blush

Part face primer, part powder blush, this nourishing formula blends into skin seamlessly (bless you, shea butter and jojoba oil) and lasts for hours without fading or getting patchy, thanks to bamboo stem powder.

3

Best Drugstore Blush Stain

Pixi by Petra Sheer Cheek Gel

Think of this gel blush like a lip stain for your cheeks. The sheer, lightweight formula immediately melts into skin and leaves behind a wash of juicy berry color. It basically feels like nothing on your face and lasts for hours too.

Best Shimmery Drugstore Blush

Milani Baked Blush

Ever heard of Nars Orgasm? It’s the most iconic blush of all time, but at $30, it isn’t exactly a bargain. DW though, I found the best drugstore dupe for Orgasm: Milani’s Baked Blush in Luminoso. It’s the internet’s favorite drugstore blush, and it leaves your skin with the same peachy pink glow for a third of the price.

5

Best Organic Drugstore Blush

Physicians Formula Dewy Blush Elixir

I love that this drugstore blush is made with plant-based ingredients but doesn’t cost a ton like other clean, green makeup products. It’s made with organic aloe vera, jojoba oil, and super-fruits (like cranberry and blueberry) to condition your skin for an ultra-dewy glow.

6

Best Drugstore Jelly Blush

NYX Bare With Me Cannabis Sativa Jelly Cheek Color

This drugstore blush has the most satisfying bouncy, jelly-like texture that’s easy to blend and build and treats skin to an instant cooling sensation. Plus, it’s infused with anti-inflammatory cannabis sativa oil to help soothe and hydrate your skin.

7

Best Drugstore Blush Palette

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Blush

You can’t beat the price of this blush palette. For $10, you get four ultra-pigmented and long-lasting powder blush shades that work on a variety of skin tones—plus it comes with a cute little makeup brush for easy application too.

8

Best Drugstore Powder Blush

Covergirl Trublend So Flushed High Pigment Blush

Perfect for anyone with combo or oily skin, this powder blush has a long-lasting matte finish that gives skin a rosy glow without looking too shiny. Use a fluffy brush to lightly sweep it across your nose, the apples of your cheeks, and the tops of your cheekbones too.

9

Best Drugstore Stick Blush

Revlon Photoready Insta-Blush Stick

Stash the stick formula in your makeup bag (P.S., It won’t ever spill, leak, or make a mess), and when you’re ready to create a subtle flush, just tap the cream color in the apples of your cheeks and quickly blend it out with your fingers.

10

Best Gel-Cream Drugstore Blush

Maybelline New York Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush

This oil-free, water-based blush has a lightweight gel-cream texture that’s perf for anyone who likes to create different blush looks for day and night. It’s super buildable—meaning you can wear it sheer for a soft flush or really layer it on for a bold pop of color.

11

Best Easy-To-Use Drugstore Blush

Flower Beauty Blush Bomb Color Drops

This drugstore option from Flower Beauty is hands down the easiest blush on the list to use. The liquid formula is dispensed in tiny drops (so you can’t really overdo it) and has a silky texture that applies easily without makeup sponges or brushes.

12

Best Derm-Approved Drugstore Blush

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Powder Blush

If you have sensitive skin, this derm-approved blush from Neutrogena is a safe choice. It doesn’t contain any potential skin irritants (like fragrance) and is made with blendable powder pigments, vitamin C, and plant-based conditioners.
