In our opinion, blush is pretty much perfect and always will be. It's one of the first cosmetics we ever got our digits on, and to this day, we can confidently say it's never let us down.
So, whenever brand-new iterations of our favorite beauty item hit the market, we're slightly skeptical. Why mess with perfection? But, a certain breed of blusher has us totally eating our words — and, it comes in a stick.
Allow us a moment to fully extol the virtues of stick blushes: They're incredibly blendable and boast silky, creamy formulas suitable for use on lips as well. The portability factor is also a major draw: No more powder-y pink explosions in your purse. Plus, there's just something innately awesome about a beauty product that so closely resembles a push pop, no?
Lucky for us all, a whole new wave of stick blushes has emerged for spring. So, we've rounded 'em up — along with some super-reliable standbys — in the slides to follow.
