I have a weakness for blush. Maybe it’s the story of this one or maybe it’s the glamorous associations I have with it, but it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite makeup products to use. That, in itself, is crazy, considering I used to avoid it completely. You see, I’ve struggled with redness and rosacea for most of my life, and the idea of exacerbating the redness wasn’t something I found very appealing. It wasn’t until I hit my late twenties that I realized the power and potential of blush. Placed correctly, it does not accentuate my redness; instead, it brightens my skin tone, eliminates dullness, and makes me look lively.
I also recently joined TikTok, which means I spent a lot of time scrolling through videos, many of which are reviews and types of prep with me. What I have noticed is that the majority of viral TikTok makeup products are blush. Whether it’s cream, liquid or oil (more on the latter in a minute), TikTokers can’t get enough. So, like any good beauty editor would, I decided to test them all, pitting the products against each other to find the best of the best. Ahead, see all the blushes I tested, how they looked IRL, and which one was the winner (hint: even I was surprised at the result).
