7 Best Blush Palettes for Every Budget

Eyeshadow palettes are cool and all (we’ve got about twenty stashed under our desks to prove it) but cool, creative, ‘grammable blush palettes are having a moment. Gone are the days when we treated blush like the outsider of our beauty routine. Instead, we’re celebrating unique palettes in all forms, like the classic (and affordable!) e.l.f. powder blush palette that’s a staple in every beauty novice’s beauty stash, the PÜR Blush Book that basically doubles as a work of art and the Urban Decay Backtalk Palette, which contains everything you need to complete your makeup look.

Read on to find out more about all seven blush palettes we’re loving right now:

The Drugstore Must-Have

e.l.f. Powder Blush Palette,$8

You can’t beat the price of this $6 palette containing four pigmented shades of must-have blush shades. There are two variations of the palette: a light and a dark version depending on the color payoff you want, or your blush shade preference for your skin tone.



The Versatile Palette With a Fun Addition

Maybelline FaceStudio Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit, $15.99

The best part about this palette is that the three blushes contained inside are super different — one being a coral pink, another a light pink and a dark crimson. Either use each shade on its own or mix together to create a personalized look. Finally, finish with the highlighter that’s included in the palette to complete your warm, glowy look.



The Palette You’ll Use For Years

NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette, $27

As is the case with every NYX Professional Makeup palette, the Sweet Cheeks Blush palette makes application easy because it gives you so many different options depending on the look you’re going for. This palette contains eight highly-pigmented shades ranging from a shimmery neutral pink that doubles as highlighter, bright coral-pink and a rosy hue. Since it has so many gorgeous options, this palette’s sure to be a staple in your vanity for years to come.



The Blush Book We Can’t Stop Staring At

PUR 4-in-1 Blush Book, $36

The PÜR Blush Book is a palette we think every beauty lover can get onboard with. Whether you’re looking to get a sheer flush of color or something bold, the palette contains four blushes named Honest (salmon pink), Passionate (pink), Determined (orange-red), and Loyal (magenta pink).  



The Ombré Palette You Need In Your Beauty Stash

Kevyn Aucoin The Neo-Blush, $38

Not only is this ombré blush palette fun to stare at, but it’s super pretty to wear, too. You can either use each shade individually or swirl all three colors together to create a warm flush of color.




The Palette with 5-Star Reviews at Sephora

Viseart Blush Palette, $80

The price tag of this one is a little scary, we know, but it’s too good to keep off the list. The palette comes in three different options: rose-coral (the one we currently can’t stop watching), plum-bronze and orange-violet.
