Not only is the start of spring (which is now only a few weeks away) a time to shop fresh styles — it also makes for an ideal moment to introduce new makeup into your routine. And with the winter months almost behind you, it wouldn't be far-fetched to say that you're probably ready to add a dose of color to make up for the glow that winter so often takes away. Fortunately, you'll be pleased to learn you can liven up your look at a low cost by shopping some of the best drugstore blushes, all of which have received the stamp of approval from many fellow beauty lovers.
Right now, top-rated blushes from favorite drugstore brands span a range colors, from peachy nudes and rosy pinks to berry hues, giving you lots of options to choose from. The best part? The low prices, of course, which give you the opportunity to try out a couple of different shades while leaving you with extra money for other products you're eager to bring into your makeup bag.
Speaking of wallet-friendly prices, don't let the $5 tag on this e.l.f. Blush & Bronzer fool you; the dynamic duo will not only give your cheeks a kiss of color, but define your cheekbones, too. If you like to contour (or are open to giving it a whirl), add this to your collection stat. The highly-reviewed combination product has received five stars from more than 600 customers. And for even more options, try out e.l.f.'s Blush Palette — it's $5.80 at Jet and gives you more for your money with four shades that reviewers say have the perfect amount of pigment.
Those looking for several color options should take a peek at L'Oréal's True Match Super Blendable Blush, which is available in nine different hues at Ulta for $11.99 each. Reviewers praise the product for its effortless application and its easy-to-blend, lightweight formula. However, if you're after a shade with more sheen, sweep on Milani's Baked Blush in one of its shimmering colors for a radiant glow. Reviewers agree that it provides a natural, pretty color, and, as one shopper even put it, it's "a game changer." Plus, it'll only set you back $7.99.
