Best Blushes (Under $15)

View the List

As 2017 comes to a close, it’s time to reflect back on the products I’ve reviewed during the past year and share with you my personal favorites. When I went to pull my favorite blushes reviewed in the last year that were under $15 in price, I noticed that there weren’t that many options, and there weren’t quite as many options as I expected above the $15 price point either… but there were a lot more highlighters. I’d love to hear about your favorite affordable blush formulas and shades — share yours in the comments! 🙂

I hope Milani will consider adding more shades to their Baked Blush range in 2018!  I’m sure we’ll see at least a dozen new shades of ColourPop’s Super Shock Cheek formula next year, and I hope they’ll tweak their powder blush formula so that maybe there will be a lot more shades that could be considered for next year’s best of blush list.

Check out the full list of products that made my list this year below…

Colour Pop Whipped

Whipped is a muted, rosy bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture on this shade was a little more emollient and wet to the touch, so it did not build up coverage quite as easily as other shades. Read full review.
