My Top 5 Blushes!

Hey guys!

Today I’m talking all about my top 5 favorite blushes! Blush has become my favorite makeup product to shop for and my favorite step in my makeup routine. There are SO many brands that provide great quality blushes and I’ve gathered my top picks that work well on many different skin tones. So lets get started!

I first wanted to swatch all of them for you so you can get a side by side of each! Keep reading for the details!


Fresh Melon by City Color

city color blush

city color blushThis is easily one of the most smooth blushes I’ve ever used! It is a gorgeous peachy melon shade that is completely matte, which I love! Another a great thing about this blush is the size. It will take me forever to hit pan on this product. It has intense pigmentation, so a light hand when applying this product is key.

Peach by NYX

NYX Blush

NYX BlushAn oldie, but a goodie! This blush is the least pigmented out of my whole collection. That being said, I always reach for this guy when I am going for a more natural makeup look. It is completely matte and can be built up to a gorgeous barbie pink shade. The name is peach, but it is definitely a true bright pink in the packaging! Another great aspect of this line is how affordable they are. This can be found at many different drugstores, as well as online.

Heather Silk by Wet n Wild

Wet N Wild blush

Wet N Wild blushThis is another blush from Wet n Wild that I believe you MUST own! It is the most pigmented out of any blush in my collection. I love the matte dark pink shade and creamy formula as well. If you are looking for a blush that is more budget friendly, then this is the right pick for you!

Pearlescent Pink by Wet n Wild

Wet n wild blush

Wet n wild blushYou guys have heard me rave over this blush, so its no surprise it made it into my top 5. It is also very easy to apply and is super creamy. I love the slight shimmer in the powder that comes off a bit glowy on the skin. The shimmer is just enough to make you look fresh faced and awake no matter what!

Peach Bellini by Model Co

Model Co blush

Model Co blushThis blush was an unexpected favorite for sure. It is on the peachy-orange side and also has a sheen to it. When it’s applied on the skin you seem to have a bronze, healthy glow that is too gorgeous! This is a perfect choice for anyone with a more tan skin tone.

That’s it for my top picks of my collection! Let me know some of your favorite blushes in your collection, drugstore or high end! I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to subscribe to this blog for new posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! Love and light! :)

XX, Amy

  1. Wet & Wild Heather Silk is my all-time favorite! So nice to see it made your list as well! :) It is the most pigmented, but also surprisingly the most blendable and natural finish that I’ve found. I’ll have to try their Pearlescent Pink shade; it almost looks reminiscent of the Milani Baked Blushes, and I’d be curious to see how they compare.


  2. Fresh Melon and Peach Bellini are my favourites! I’ve never tried any of your top 5 blushers!
    NYX blush shade names are ridiculous – I have one called “mocha” which is nice mid-tone pink, haha!


  3. Wet and Wild gets such a bad rep for cost when really it’s NY go to for brushes, makeup, and polishes. Their pigment and quality is awesome. Back in the day they used to crumble easy but now I’m in love
