TEN BEST DRUGSTORE BLUSHES – 2018

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I have a few rules when it comes to spending on beauty products. I tend to splurge on products like foundation and concealer while skimping on color cosmetics like eyeliners, blushes, eyeshadows, and lipsticks. The simple reason behind this rule is that foundations and other base products that suit your skin tone and type are very hard to find. They should be carefully chosen as they can damage the skin and the makeup look if the right products are not used. I already have a collection of some of the best drugstore blushes available in the market and have reviewed two of them on the blog as well.

Another reason is that I tend to get bored of eyeliners and blushes very quickly. So when it comes to blushes, drugstore brands tend to feature a lot in my collection and I have compiled a list of ten best drugstore blushes for you to select the best drugstore blush according to your color preferences.

1. Maybelline New York Color Show Blush
