How many times have you wasted your entire paycheck on a fancy-ass blush, only to get home and realize it looks and feels oddly similar to that drugstore formula lying at the bottom of your makeup bag? Welp, that’s because it’s 2017 and drugstores are currently loaded with blushes that aren’t only dirt-cheap, but extremely high quality. But anyone who has ever step foot in a drugstore is well-acquainted with the frantic scene of running down the makeup aisle in search of that perfect, creamy shade, only to be overwhelmed by the insanely large amount of products that all claim to be “the most natural-looking” and “the most pigmented.”

And after panicking one-too-many times and opting for a $25 not-so-special blush that left our cheeks lifeless, we finally drew the line. We took it upon ourselves to sift through shelves upon shelves of drugstore blushes to find the absolute best formulas on the market. Ahead, you’ll find our nine favorite formulas (which, by the way, are all under $11) that look and feel seriously good, including a cult-favorite, ultra-creamy blush from Physicians Formula, and a silky smooth powder blush from Milani. Shop all nine, ahead, and get swiping.
