Makeup trends come and go, but if there’s one product that will never go out of style, it’s blush. Available as a powder, cream or liquid, blush can add a soft touch of rosy colour to any and all complexions. Of course, there are so many to choose from now. So, I’ve compiled a list of the eight best blushes of all time to help you choose the right one for you. Ready? Let’s go! 

1. NARS Orgasm 

It’s not just the controversial name that makes this blush so iconic. The award-winning formula and rosy pink shade has earned its status by delivery a natural-looking flush that really does complement all skin tones. Plus, how can you not love its subtle golden glimmer?  

2. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks 

Don’t you just love a multipurpose product? This award-winning Lips and Cheeks cream colour adds a beautiful, healthy glow to your pout and complexion. 

Perfect for those who are still a bit apprehensive about using blush, this soft tint adds just a hint of colour to your skin for a delicate, stained effect.  

3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio 

Why limit yourself to one blush when you can enjoy three? 

Featuring three shades, you can customise your look by layering on more colour for a bold effect, or dusting your cheeks with a single hue for a subtle look. Either way, the silky-smooth pigments will blend effortlessly onto your skin and stay put all day long.

6. NARS’ Orgasm Liquid Blush

If you prefer a liquid blush (guilty!), you can still enjoy the iconic peachy pink hue of NARS Orgasm thanks to their new formula.  

Enriched with a skin-loving blend of Monoi and Tamanu oils, this blush not only adds a flush of colour, but provides a dose of moisture to your skin too. Your dewy radiance awaits! 

4. Benefit Cosmetics' Garlifornia Blush

If you have a medium to dark skin tone, this is undeniably one of the best blushes for you!

The perfect cross between a highlighter and a blush, this cute little compact will add a soft, rosy radiance to your complexion. Expect a bright pink hue with luscious shimmering gold undertones. 

5. Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher 

This beauty gem offers the same highlighter/blush duo as the powder above, only in liquid form.  

Infused with jojoba and vitamin E, this multi-award winning, water-resistant blush nourishes and conditions skin, whilst delivering streak-free, blendable colour. Expect a subtle, dewy sheen.  

7. Clinique’s Chubby Stick Cheek Colour 

If you prefer a cream blush but have an oily complexion, then you’re going to think that this is the best blush ever!  

Boasting a creamy, oil-free formula, this buildable blush glides over your skin to create a natural-looking, healthy glow. It’s the perfect way of adding a touch of colour to cheeks. Simply swipe on, then blend with your fingers. 

8. Armani A-Blush 

Love the ‘no-makeup makeup’ look? Then this is one of the best blushes you can use! 

lipgloss/creamy blush hybrid, this versatile makeup must-have can be used to enhance both your lips and your cheeks, creating a subtle makeup look. Use the doe foot applicator to apply it with precision, then blend it out for a seamless finish.  

And there you have it, the best blushes of all time, all of which are available to buy from using your Glossy Credit.
