Spring Approved: Must Have Drugstore Blushes

If you know me at all you know I am a BLUSH ADDICT!!!! It all started when I was 9 and was heavily involved in dance (read more and see a picture here lol). To me no makeup look is complete without blush and when spring and summer arrive its my favorite time of the year to get my cheek all peachy and ready to glow! Drugstores blushes are some of the best out there and I adore finding affordable makeup. With some many pinks, peaches, corals and nudes to choose from how can one not get excited! Not to mention endless options of shimmers, mattes, creams and powders.

Here are some must have Drugstore Blushes to get you ready for Spring on a budget!

  • ELF Beautifully Bare Blush: Shade Peach Perfection ($4.00) This is a cream based blush that can be easily applied with your fingers or a small stippling brush. I love this one from Elf. This swatches darker than it actually looks on the cheek. Its a gorgeous sheer tint of peach!
  • Pixi By Petra Glowy Powder: Shade Rome Rose ($16.00)  Ohhhh Pixi Beauty has stolen my heart. This powder is peachy pink with gold shimmer perfection that goes on so smoothly. The most expensive out of them all but Pixi Beauty is high end at the drugstore! (see the Pixi Glowy Powder Collection with swatches and my review here)
  • Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush: Shade Apricot In The Middle ($2.99) My absolute go to blush that I know will never fail me. For everyday natural looks to a bold red lip look for a night out! You will not be disappointing plus these Wet N Wild blushes apply like high end blushes! Winning!!!!!
  • Milani Baked Blush: Shade Luminoso ($6.99) This blush pretty much has a cult following and for a good reason.
  • Physicians Formula Butter Blush: Shade Natural Glow ($12.99) Glowy Shimmer Perfection. A blush that can be worn alone or as a topper to give a more matte blush a bit of peachy pink shimmer!

Drugstore Blushes, Spring Blushes

Each of these drugstore blushes offer such soft shades of pinks and peaches to give your skin that spring glow we all want. They can be pared with nude looks, bright & bold looks and perfectly transition to day to night when you are on the go!

NEW Pixi + Aspynovard Glow-y Powder: Review & Swatches

The New Pixi Highlighter / Cheek Powders  are apart of their blogger collaborations they recently launched. Lifestyle Blogger Aspyn Ovard created three gorgeous Glow-y Powders for all skin tones and the best part is you can get them right at your local Target!  Pixi Beauty explains “these velvety soft highlighter adds a hint of glow,creating a luminous effect. Natural mineral powder hydrates and reflects light to brighten complexion” I could not agree more. Pixi Beauty has a way of creating products that give you a very natural no makeup, makeup kind of look. I am loving everything I have been trying and these Glow-y Powders are no exception! Get ready to glow on a budget! Look at this pigment!!

Pixi Highlighter

These are the first highlighters and powders I have ever tried that give me the same feeling as BECCA Cosmetics Highlighters. If you have been following me for some time you know that says a lot because to me there are really no comparisons to BECCA highlighters. These have that buttery smooth feel to them with absolutely no chalkiness or glitter. Its a beautiful subtle glow that can be used for day or layered at night for that extra glow we all secretly want. Or is that just me? lol Notice on the brush how you can see the product, that is a must for me when it comes to highlighters.

Product Information:

  • 3 Shades Available –  Rome Rose, London Luster, Santorini Sunset
  • Available at Target and Pixibeauty.com
  • Retail for $16.00 (USD)

I know $16 may seem like a larger amount for a drugstore product however the pan sizes are big and when I say these are high end products at the drugstore they are! The Strobe & Sculpt brush in this collaboration is also equally fabulous and I highly recommend it. The brush was designed by Youtuber Maryam Maquillage  (stay tuned as I will be giving full review of the brush and Strobing and Bronzing palette soon)
