Blush is definitely a make up product you can get away with from the drugstore. One of my recent finds is Hema Wet and Dry Blush in 52 (red) and 54 (brown). Hema make up is quite budget friendly with a great range of products and selection of colors. Both blush colors remind me of MAC Mineralize Skinfinish powders, with the only difference of price (even packaging looks very similar).
Both Hema Wet and Dry Blush colors look very pigmented and shimmering in the pan but there is nothing to worry. Hema Blush in 52 (red) is a very natural rouge color and is suitable for moments when you want a bit of color on your cheeks. The color is very buildable which gives you more control. The shimmer is finely milled and it reflects the lights on the skin. On my fair complexion the shimmery particles tend to worm my fair shin and give dimension to my face. Hema Wet and Dry Blush in 54 (brown) is something between bronzer and highlighter. For me it works better as a highlighter or can even double up as a eye shadow (strongly recommend!). These blushes can also be used with wet brush, in case you want to achieve more vivid and pigmented color.
