The Highest-Ranked Drugstore Blush Right Now

Some products are lifelong staples in our medicine cabinets, like affordable fragrances, our crème de la crème contouring products, and some anti-aging serums and moisturizers. Another go-to that we're always stocked up on? Blush. But, that can sometimes cost a pretty penny. So, is there one out there that's both inexpensive yet still provides a good color payoff?  The folks over at Rank & Style have the answer. 

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush the winner.

NYX takes the gold because it's insanely popular, a top pick among editors, and has garnered some pretty stellar user reviews. On Amazon, user BDaisy says: "This is the first time purchasing an NYX blush, and I am very happy with it! Perfect color (very similar to NARS Orgasm, which is why I gave it a shot), great pigment and lasts all day." We love it because not only does it add a subtle hint of sun-kissed color, but it can also be used for contouring, if that's your thing. 

Blush is an easy addition to any makeup look that helps you look instantly brighter. And, the best part in this case is you don't have to break the bank to get the effect.

NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush, $5, available at Amazon
