The 10 Best Drugstore Blushes under $10

Today we’re talking THE BEST drugstore blushes under $10. One of the most frequent questions I get asked about my makeup is what blush I’m wearing, so I thought I’d share a roundup of the best drugstore blushes that are both great quality and budget-friendly at under $10.

If you’ve been around these parts for awhile, you know how much of a fan I am of drugstore makeup. (Check out my best drugstore makeup series over here!) Not only is drugstore makeup inexpensive and easily accessible at your local drugstore, but with a little searching you can often find better quality makeup products than some high end makeup, making it a no-brainer choice. This is especially true with blushes and they’re the perfect makeup item to add some color and glow to your cheeks.

Let’s dig into my fave drugstore blushes and as always I’ve linked all the products below for easy shopping!

The Best Drugstore Blushes

Milani Baked Blush // At the top of my list is my holy grail, absolute favorite blush of all time- Milani Baked Blush. These blushes have a mix of beautiful colors all in one with a touch of shimmer, and are super pigmented giving you a beautiful color and glow on the cheeks. You honestly can’t go wrong with any of their blushes, but my personal favorite drugstore blushes for fair skin include Berry Amore, Delizioso Pink, and Corallina!

Maybelline Fit Me Blush // Another one of my favorite drugstore blushes is the Fit Me Blush for Maybelline. They offer one of the best blush color selections (in my opinion) with a range of peach, pink, and mauve tones that work with all skin tones. The texture is really creamy and smooth on the skin and I find this one holds up really nicely throughout the day. (And they’re under $6!)

Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Powder // One of the first drugstore brands I ever owned was Physicians Formula, and their blush and bronzer products never disappoint! This product gives such a gorgeous glow to the cheeks and even claims to give you endorphins to put you in a better mood. I must say I’m always pretty happy wearing this blush!

e.l.f. Blush Palette // e.l.f. really outdid themselves with their beautiful blush palette. Not only do you get 4 versatile shades in one, but the pigmentation is on point!  This palette is perfect for traveling or for keeping handy in your makeup bag and is really the perfect affordable blush option if you like to have multiple colors to choose from.

NYX Professional High Definition Blush // If you want something that is going to last on the cheeks all day long, look no further than the NYX Professional HD blushes! These were actually one of the first products I bought from NYX, and I haven’t been let down yet. Shown is the color “Intuition” but I own tons of pink shades that look so pretty year-round!

Milani Illuminating Face Powder // Although the baked blushes are my first love, these illuminating face powders are just as beautiful and a total must-have. The packaging itself is gorgeous featuring beautiful roses, but all the colors mixed together on the cheeks look so pretty! The shade “Beauty’s Touch” offers more of a pinky, rose tone while the shade “Amber Nectar” is equally gorgeous and is the perfect product for getting that summer time bronzey glow. I love swirling around my brush in them to get a super pretty pigmentation.

Physicians Formula Organic Wear Dewy Blush Elixir // I used to avoid cream and liquid blushes until I got my hands on the Physicians Formula Dewy Blushes from their new Organic Wear collection and they’re SO beautiful on the skin! (Check out my full review here) They are GORGEOUS, highly pigmented, and so easy to apply using a tiny dot of product on a makeup brush. They also have a slight dewy finish to them which adds a bit of natural highlight to the skin. Also to be organic and under $10 – yes, please!

L.A. Girl Just Blushing Powder // I discovered this hidden gem of a blush on a random trip to CVS and it’s quickly became a favorite in my makeup collection. The velvet soft texture feels amazing on the skin and it blends out like a dream for a beautiful, natural look. My personal favorites are Just Kissed and Just Peachy.

Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Blush // The Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Blushes are a classic blush choice at the drugstore and add the perfect amount of color to the cheeks. I own several shades including their pink one, a coral one, and a rose one- all of which are beautiful and highly affordable.

e.l.f. Blush // Last but certainly not least is e.l.f.’s original blush! While it may be one of the most inexpensive products on the list at $3 it is one of the best drugstore blushes out there in terms of pigmentation. If you want an inexpensive product that gives you great color, definitely give it a try. Shown is Candid Coral, which is so pretty on the cheeks!

  7. I’ve become really enthusiastic over makeup the last few months and I’ve been looking for some great blushes. These are all great suggestions! I like the really pigmented one πŸ™‚

    1. I love adding blush to the cheeks for that little extra bit of color! Glad you enjoyed the post! πŸ™‚

  8. These are all gorgeous! I love Milani Luminoso and the Elf Quad. But I have never tried a Sonia Kashuk blush before and that one looks beautiful!

  9. I love this guide! I just bought a new blush with my Urban Decay palette. It came with bronzer, highlight, and blush. I do need to find another shade so I’m definitely going to check these out!

  10. I have almost all of these! They are AWESOME. Elf is one of my favorite blush brands – so pigmented!

    1. I know, it’s crazy! Also the fact that they are so inexpensive too, which is awesome.

  11. I love this post! Thanks so much for sharing! I’m big on drugstore brands because I don’t love spending tons of money on my makeup since I don’t wear much to begin with. I have super dry skin so I use a liquid blush by L’Oreal at the moment, which I love, but I’m definitely willing to try one of these!

    1. Oh- interesting. I’ve never heard of a liquid one by L’Oreal so I’ll have to check that out. I have dry skin too but haven’t noticed any issues with any of these powder products. πŸ™‚

  12. I love these – I will definitely be following your recommendations here. I love Sonia Kashuk makeup, but I noticed two different Target stores near me no longer carry it. Wonder what’s up? Good thing I have these options πŸ™‚

    1. Hmm that’s strange! Maybe try seeing if you can find the products online and ship it to the store! πŸ™‚

    1. I love coming across good dupes at the drugstore, so I definitely recommend giving some of these a try! Milani and Wet n’ Wild are probably my fave!

  15. I love hearing about all the positive comments and reviews from inexpensive brands like NYX, elf, etc. But I love that you have a great mix of blushes here from brands I have always wanted to try to Milani Baked Blush because it has the best reviews and it’s also affordable. Love this list!

    1. Once you try it, you’ll never go back! haha I’m obsessed with milani baked blushes- they’re absolutely beautiful. πŸ™‚

  16. So many amazing choices here. I didn’t used to wear blush but now i’m obsessed. I love that ELF palette, it’s one of my daily “go tos”. I’ve been wanting to try the Milani Illuminiating Face Palette and the Wet ‘n Wild Ombre one, too!

    1. I love adding a little color to my cheeks even when I don’t have on a full-face of makeup. I definitely recommend both of those! πŸ™‚

  17. The Milani Baked Blushes are some of the best of ALL time! I love Luminoso and Rose D’Oro. I also really love essence cosmetics ombre blush – it’s super pigmented for a great price!

    1. Milani Baked blushes are amazing! I’ll have to check the essence ombre one out! πŸ™‚

  18. Thank you for the amazing tips. I would love to give it a try to both mentioned Milani blushes. They just look so gorgeous.

  19. These are some great blushes! The WnW Color Icon ones are my favorite! Milani has great ones too. If you have ever heard of City Color Cosmetics their matte blushes are AWESOME and HUGE and less than $5.00.

    1. Oh I’ll have to check those out! Milani and WnW are probably my faves! They have great pigmentation!

  20. milani blushes are so so pretty!! i really need to get my hands on one xx

  21. Pixi and NYX I’ve used before and they’re great! They’re such great starter products for those who don’t use makeup that often.

  22. I just got a ‘roller’ for highlighter & really like how it applys – I’d love to have a blush in that.

  23. Such great picks!! I love the Elf one – I use their bronzer/blush duo and LOVE it! It’s a great dupe for the NARS one!

    1. Thanks! I’ve heard that from a lot of people! It’s nice to find good dupes! πŸ™‚

  24. Milani is my favorite drugstore brand for blushes!!! I like their lip gloss colors too. I will have to check out the Pixi one.

  25. That Pixi blush stick looks really interesting. I think I need to try that one!

  26. Wet n wild an elf have really amaze me with how wonderful their products have been, especially of late! Well I love my Nars blush, it’s always nice to be able to pick up a fun drugstore brand. Have a marvelous Monday beautiful lady!

    1. I agree! It’s nice to know there are affordable options out there that work just as well! πŸ™‚

  27. Great article–I am often at the drugstore and uncertain of which products to try when I’m in a pinch. I have tried the Sonia Kashuk in the past and not been disappointed πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks! They have really good foundation products too! I love their lightweight foundation. πŸ™‚

  28. I think that the NYX blush (in “Pinched”) is totally a dupe for NARS Orgasm blush! It’s crazy how almost identical they are to each other!
