8 Blushes To Give You A Beautiful Flush This Winter

If you are looking to get that nice flush to brighten up your face and bring color back into your face in the winter season, these blushes are a must-buy!

1. Buxom Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blush in Dolly

This first one is my favorite of all of the blushes I have ever purchased and tried for myself. Buxom is a super high-quality brand that is specifically known for the lip products that they produce, however, the formula of the Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blushes is so spectacular! The blush itself is a powder and the primer that Buxom has formulated into it ensures that this product will give you that gorgeous flush all day long. I have dry skin and although this is a highly pigmented powder product, it does not cling to dry patches of skin and gives the skin such a nice glow. The shade Dolly is a rich mauve color, looks good on several skin tones, and specifically is my personal favorite from this range of blushes. These Buxom blushes retail at $22, which for a face product from a higher-end makeup brand is a great price!

2. Colourpop Blush Stix in Invite Only

If you prefer cream blushes, the Colourpop Blush Stix is definitely a range you should check out. This blush is formulated to be extremely blendable and lightweight to create a natural, glowy look on the cheeks. Invite Only is the shade that I am most drawn to from this range. It is a warm, terracotta shade with rosy undertones that create such a beautiful naturally flushed color for your cheeks. The stick packaging makes it so easy to swipe this blush across the apples of your cheeks and you can simply use your fingers to blend it into the skin for a natural look. If you want a more dramatic flush, then I would recommend using a stippling brush to really pack the color onto your cheeks. These Colourpop Blush Stix retail for only $8.00 on the Ulta website and come in eight stunning shades, so if this one is not your cup of tea, there are many more shades to choose from.

3. COVER FX Monochromatic Blush Duo in Sweet Mulberry

This next blush is a bit of a splurge, but the amount of gorgeous product you get is well worth the price. The Monochromatic Blush Duos from COVER FX are some of the top-selling blushes on the market right now and come in six colors. The one I have my eye on for the winter season is the duo in the shade Sweet Mulberry, which is a rich berry color as the name of the shade suggests. These duos retail for $38.00, however, you get both a matte and a shimmer shade within the duo, so you are basically getting two stunning blushes for $38.00. These blushes are formulated to be able to use them individually or together to create a custom color for you! The berry shades in the monochromatic duo are absolutely beautiful and are perfect for the winter months to bring color to your face when everyone is getting less sunlight.

4. NYX Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint in Nude’tude

Back to another more affordable blush option is the NYX Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint. This collection of blushes are a mousse texture that is quite unique and the shades range from bright pink to orange. My favorite shade from this range of blushes is the shade Nude’tude, which is a taupe color. It is only $9.00 from Ulta and the formula is 100% vegan from a brand that is cruelty-free! Similar to the Colourpop Blush Stix in the fact that the blush formula is very buildable and blendable, so whether you want an intense wash of color or a natural flush, this blush range has a shade that will be what you are looking for. The doe-foot applicator allows for a precise application of the product onto the cheeks, while feeling like you are not wearing any heavy makeup. Also, at the time I am writing this piece, Ulta is doing a free gift with a purchase offer that includes a free brush and sponge set with any $20.00 NYX makeup purchase. So, if you are looking to stock up on some products, I would definitely take advantage of this offer.

5. Burt’s Bees Blush with Vitamin E in Toasted Cinnamon

Lastly, for this roundup of winter blushes, we have one from the brand Burt’s Bees. The company has launched a powder blush infused with Vitamin E, bamboo, and honey to help every skin tone glow. The range has three shades, my favorite being Toasted Cinnamon which is a shade that would look especially beautiful on darker skin tones. This shade is described as a tawny brown color and is just gorgeous! It is free of parabens, SLS, phthalates, talc, petroleum, and synthetic fragrances, therefore your skin will not only look fabulous while wearing this product it will also refrain from irritating your skin. As someone with very sensitive skin, the fact that Burt’s Bees has taken the time and care to formulate these blushes with natural ingredients that are beneficial to the skin and to omit harmful ingredients means the world to me. It is so important to have confidence that the makeup products you are putting on your face not only look good but also feel good on the skin! These Burt’s Bees Blushes with Vitamin E retail for $9.99 on Ulta’s website. Plus, if you act soon, you can take advantage of the free gift with purchase offer that Ulta is running for the brand. If you spend $15.00 on Burt’s Bees makeup, you will qualify to receive a free sample of the Dusty Woods eyeshadow pallet! This offer is only online and is valid until December 31, 2020.
