Happy Saturday my friends! Today on Glamorousandgeeky I wanted to share some of my favorite blushes and highlighters. I love blush so much, not only because they are so pretty, but because they can give some color to my pale face. That way I look less like a vampire and more like a human. I get so happy when I find a blush that has a great color and great prices. I do love my prestige brands like Tarte, and Too Faced. But I also love some of the drug store brands, like E.L.F and Milani.

So, I have listed my faves of the prestige and drug store. So there is blush for everyone and every budget! And all of them have phenomenal quality and pigment! Note, I did not include any liquid highlighters or blush, why? Well, personally as someone with super oily skin some never stay on or I also have issues with them. I never get them on right. So, never use them.

OK, so brands I love, let’s go over Prestige.

Tarte. I love this brand. Their blushes are some of my all time faves. I have their highlighters too. Their products are cruelty free and some are vegan. Super pigmented as well. You can get these blushes in a lot of their gift sets like this one here.

Too Faced another cruelty free brand with vegan products. I love their packaging and designs their highlighters are good too. Their blush is super pigmented a little goes a long way.

Nars I love their bronzer and i tried their blush recently. Wow! It’s really good!!! Love the color selection.

So for drug store(i am typing this with one arm. my son is sleeping on one arm.)

E.L.F. I have been a fan of their blushes and highlighters for years!! Affordable and good! These are widely available too.

Milani their baked blush is always so good!!!! Good colors and affordable!!

Nyx a great line and their blushes are so good! love them!!! Affordable too and also widely available!! They have some great brushes.

These are all highlighters that I currently own or have tried and or want! Want like the Urban Decay, it is just so pretty and sparkly. The Amazonian clay Tarte Highlighter stays on for a good time and the ELF is one I have repurchased several times! The Too Faced is one I have swatched and want as well. All of these have great shine and some more sparkle than others.

    I need to check some of these highlighters out. I love trying new products! I really love a particular highlighter from Pixi though, but currently I’m using a highlighter I got in a subscription box that is lovely, but not as awesome as the Pixi one I love.

      I have 2 from Pixie and end up back to my E.L.F or TArte. I keep saying I will get the Urban decay one because it is great for days where I don’t want a lot of shine but want sparkle too.

    I love ELF and Milani blushes! The only NYX blush I tried was a baked blush and it was awful, wouldn’t even come off on the brush. But, I’ll have to try one of their other blushes. You know, another good affordable blush is Essence. Their Satin Touch Blushes are actually really good and a great price! I like them better than ELF.


    • Stephanie January 15, 2018 at 2:14 PM

      Oh No! That is no good! I had a NYX baked blush before and it wasn’t bad, that is until my son played in it and I had to toss it. (happens a lot) Thanks for the recommendation . The Tarte and Too FAced are on the pricier side but are worth it! They have a lot of pigment and come off onto the brush easy.
