If you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans of blush around here — especially when it’s top-rated, quality and affordable. We’re constantly on the hunt for the latest and greatest launches to complete our makeup look and change up what product we use on the daily (because, let's face it: blush can get boring if you don’t change things up often enough).

Our latest blush obsessions are great for your face and your wallet. Enter, five drugstore blushes that are ideal for everyone from beginners to experts. There’s a super affordable, top-rated blush from Essence Makeup, a trendy, blendable blush stick from Pixi by Petra and a glow-infused baked blush from NYX Professional Makeup. Click through to see all five, ahead.
