The Rankings

Maybelline Fit Me Blush
Rank & Style Approved


Maybelline Fit Me Blush

LOVED FOR: Its creamy and smooth texture

USERS SAID: “It's almost like it's a 2-in-1 blush and highlighter! It gives a nice pop of colour to the cheeks. It also adds a bit of a glow (sort of like a highlighter does), but it's VERY subtle.”

Milani Rose Powder Blush

BEST FOR: A natural look

COMPLETE THE LOOK: Complement with one of these equally affordable bronzers for a perfect summer glow

Burt's Bees 100% Natural Blush

WHAT IT DOES: Bamboo, honey, and vitamin E nourish your skin while creating a rosy glow.

e.l.f. Blush Palette

LOVED FOR: Mix and match pigments that create custom colors

USERS SAID: “This is a great palette, especially for the cost. The colors are highly pigmented which is of particular importance to me as I am Afro Caribbean (falling in the range of medium to dark brown skin). Also, they blend well and last all day.”

L'oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Blush

WHAT IT DOES: Cream blush that gives a healthy glow while helping to erase fine lines and wrinkles

USERS SAID: “Just use a teeny bit of this and blend toward the top of the cheek bone and you're done...it stays all day and looks so natural. And it doesn't move into crease lines!!!”

NYX Powder Blush

WHY YOU NEED IT: Rich pigmentation means long-lasting, all-day color.

CoverGirl Cheekers Blendable PowderBlush

BEST FOR: Fair skin

HELPFUL TIP: Experiment with applying more than one layer to achieve your desired level of color.
