How do you know the difference between a good expensive blush and a cheap drugstore one? Everything looks the same to me.

Just make sure it doesn’t have talc, pls!

Not much difference. Just find a tone that works for you, and blush that holds long enough. I have a blush from bare minerals that I bought 7 years ago, and still can’t finish. Great blush!

Pigment and staying power, but you can find those qualities in both drug store and prestige brands. Whatever works for you! Just because it’s pricey doesn’t mean it’s good!

Expensive doesn’t always mean better. Look for talc-free, longlasting formulas, tones that suit your complexion, and pigments that that come alive on the face.

For powder blush, try HausLabs. Liquid: Rare Beauty. Cream: Danessa Myricks. Apply all of these very sparingly because they are very pigmented.

I personally don’t gravitate to drugstore makeup, but there are a lot of budget friendly brands at Sephora. Tower28 ($20), LYS ($18) cream blushes are my favorites and BareMinerals powder ($26) and they all last a long time both on the skin and in the pan. Both Sephora and the brands websites will do 15-20% off during the year. I try to only buy new makeup during sales which helps too! Sephora has a decent rewards program and you can use points as $10 off coupons.

Ulta has a good rewards program too. I shop at both of them

Usually the biggest difference is how long it stays on the face. Some cheap drug store brands will only be visible for like 2 hours.
Also ingredients, the more expensive ones are usually “cleaner”.

Expensive blush = not found in drugstore

Try Sephora or Nordstrom?

Suggest you re-read the question.
