Cop a rosy cheek without breaking the bank!

A look is rarely complete without blush, so much so that most of us won't dare to skip it every time we do our makeup. In fact, it's often one of the first products that run out; because admittedly, we don't only use blush on our cheeks—we apply it on our eyes and lips, too. So to make sure you never have to go without it, it's best to find an affordable formula that you could easily repurchase multiple times. Below, we list a few of our cream, liquid, and powder blush picks from the drugstore that you should check out:

Best Drugstore Cream/Liquid Blush

Cream and liquid blush formulas are the best for creating a natural flush without needing tools. Provided that they're easy to blend and are pigmented enough, these can double as a lip stain as well if you're on the go! Here are some of our favorite affordable creams and liquids that get the job done:

1. EB Advance Lip and Cheek Stain

The lasting power of this cheek stain already makes it such a steal for its price tag, particularly if you have a tricky skin type. However, what we love more about it is the squeeze tube packaging, which allows for a sanitary and even application on both your cheeks and lips!

2. Human Nature Perfect Flush Cream Tint

If you prefer a dewy flush, you'll love this creamy, all-natural formula from Human Nature. It comes in three rosy shades that look flattering on different skin tones, and it blends like a dream even on dry skin.

3. BLK Creamy All-Over Paint

This versatile, three-in-one tube can be used as an eyeshadow, blush, and lip color. While it may be called a creamy paint, its texture is comfortable and lightweight on the skin so you're always left with a fresh-faced finish after application.

4. Banila Co Cheek Water Cheek

For those who have a habit of accidentally overapplying blush, we recommend opting for sheer, watery tints you can slowly build up in layers. In order for this to work, however, you'll need a very blendable formula like this milky tint from Banila Co that glides easily over the skin without disturbing the makeup underneath.

5. Colourette Colourtint Fresh

Your cheek tint game will never be boring with Colourette's wide range of shades that have everything from bright corals to muted purples. Infused with beeswax and argan oil, the Colourtint Fresh promises to nourish the skin while giving it a longwearing wash of color.

6. Careline Multi Stick

Stick blushes make for a more pigmented and precise application, so if that's your thing, check out the pigmented rose and peach shades of Careline's Multi Sticks. Not only are these easy to swipe on, the cream fuses naturally with bare skin and a foundation-covered base.

7. L'Oréal Lucent Magique Cushion Blush

The mineral water in this cushion blush helps achieve that "glass skin" finish that's favored in K-beauty but without the sticky feeling. Instead of rubbing the product on your cheeks, the cushion sponge carefully deposits the vibrant pigment until fully blended.

8. Pixi Multibalm

Pixi's Multibalm sticks offer all the benefits of cream blush but in a powder-like finish even those with oily skin types can appreciate. That said, it does contain moisturizing ingredients like rosehip oil and shea butter to maintain that skin-like sheen.

Best Drugstore Powder Blush

If you prefer the precision of a brush with your makeup, a powder blush could be best for your routine. Powders are easier to control compared to creams, and if you're oily, they can mattify your cheek or set your cream blush for a longer-lasting look. For affordable options to add to your stash, keep scrolling!

1. Sleek Makeup Blush

Fans of Nars' cult-favorite blush in Orgasm will love Sleek's powder compact in Rose Gold. Both have a subtle golden sheen that adds a beautiful glow to the cheeks, but Sleek does it for a fraction of the price. The rest of the shades in this line have the same reflective finish that we love for a high-impact flush.

2. Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher

The muted and wearable shades of the Lovely Cookie Blusher is perfect for creating a sheer wash of color that looks practically undetectable on the skin. Korean YouTuber Pony often uses this on her makeup tutorials to complement a dramatic eye and barely-there looks!

3. Vice Cosmetics Aura Cheek

Vice Cosmetics' first foray into powder blushes is this collection of vibrant and functional shades with buildable color payoff. We say functional because aside from shades of pink and peach for an everyday look, the Aura Cheek comes in colors for highlighting and contouring. And for P145 a pop, you won't mind picking up more than one.

4. BYS Contour Trio in Sweet

What's even more functional than a multi-use color is having everything you need for your cheeks in one kit. This contour trio from BYS not only has a universally-flattering rose blush, it also comes with a highlighter and a contour shade to match!

5. Pink Sugar Sweet Cheeks HD Cheek Color

Reapplying your blush in the middle of the day is no biggie with this product—and it's not just because of the mirror's hefty size, but also for its finely-milled consistency that won't cake up your base after multiple layers.

7. Happy Skin Instant Glow Longwear Powder Blush

For a blush that's Kathryn Bernardo-approved, check out the morena-friendly shades of her collaboration with Happy Skin. These powder compacts provide a barely-there color that glides smoothly on the skin, which is partly thanks to the concentration of sunflower seed oil.
