Best Buy Series-Blushes

Blush application has been reinvented since the days of shoulder pads and excessive use of AquaNet hair spray. A perfectly placed rouge on the apples of your cheeks can be the difference between a hot mama or looking like your own mama. Drugstores offer fantastic options in this category so lets highlight some of them!


Maybeline comes in with two fantastic options in two very different finishes:

First up is Maybelline's Fit Blush  ($6.00)

It offers great color payoff with a slight irridescence for that ultimate sun kissed look.  I chose a similar effect on my model, Dada (above). I placed the Fit blush (she is working the product fiercely I might add!) on top of a cream based blush, which brings me to Maybelline's second winning product.  Available at most drugstores (CVS, Duane Reade, Walgreens and Walmart)

Dream Mousse Blush- $5.00
This rich and creamy but light blush offers the perfect amount of color with out over doing it. It offers buildable coverage and yet you wont look overly done. Available at most drugstores (CVS, Duane Reade, Walgreens and Walmart)


Black Radiance- $4.00
 Words cannot describe how luxuriously pigmented this $4.00 product is. The range of colors are also quite beautiful. It is my ultimate go-to product that is a veritable staple in my makeup kit. Clients love the color payoff and the sheerness of the product. Available at most drugstores (CVS, Duane Reade, Walgreens and Walmart)

Vera Moore Cosmetics -$14.50  

A little goes a long way with this long lasting blush. Vera Moore Cosmetics knows a thing or two about colors that compliment women of color. The variety is truly remarkable. Sangria is my ultimate fav and is a good dupe for MAC's Razin.Coral Gold is a good dupe for Nars' Orgasm, a must have blush for women of color. As a makeup artist (or just plain old makeup junkie), Vera Moore's blushes should be in your kit! Its available in most drug stores namely Duane Reade's Look Boutiques.


I have fallen in love with NYX cosmetics. They had me at Jumbo Pencil in Milk. The texture and finish of this blush is unbelievable for a product so inexpensive. They are incredibly pigmented and again, a little goes a long way. The variety of colors is insanely diverse so there is something for every woman. Another must have. This is available at most beauty supply stores or on their website

NYX Powder Blush -$6.00

NYX Cream Rouge- $6.75

That's all folks!
