Blush is one of those makeup products that we never forget to apply, even on the laziest of days. One swipe brings color and life to your face, even if you’ve slept a total of zero hours. And because we run through the stuff like no one’s business, it doesn’t hurt to find one that won’t break the bank! Whether it’s serious color-payoff or a natural hue you’re lookin’ for, we’ve got the best blush picks you can find at the drugstore — most of which won’t cost you more than six bucks!

Drugstore Blushes

1. NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé

For only $6, this whipped mousse can also give your lips some color! With bright red and berry finishes, or natural pinks, this creamy formula leaves the apples of your cheeks looking soft and naturally flushed

2. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush

As if it isn’t enough that the mess-free applicator is the cutest packaging we’ve ever seen, the creamy gel formula also provides a sheer and just-pinched flush!

For a blush that packs a pigmented punch, go “baked” or go home! It’s a blush and highlighter that can be used wet or dry, depending on the color intensity you’re going for.
