Who doesn’t like a bit of bargain? Finding the raved products on sale or even discovering some good stuff. Nowadays with the makeup, there are so many alternatives. Think about blushes… Whether your budget is a few quids or unlimited, there’re blushes for every budget.

I might not wear pink clothes often but when it comes to makeup, I love pink shades. Alternatives are limitless, lighter pink to darker pink, budget friendly drugstore to expensive high-end products. It is all about deciding how much you want to spend on it.

Due to the wedding, I was on a spending ban and I didn’t want to melt my budget on makeup products so I sticked to the ones I already have. Spending ban is good for helping you discover the products you love and evaluate the quality. Let’s start with the 3 pink blushes for every budget…

Kiko Colour Veil blush in 01 is the cheapest one I have. I got it when it was on sale and paid something below £4. Light pink blush has micro glitters in it and give sun glow when the sun hits your skin. For that price, the colour payoff is not bad, you need to layer up for the intensity. I have oily skin and it lasts 4-5 hours on my skin before it starts fading. It has soft texture and it is easy to work with.

Next one on the list is Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink. It is £8.99 and you won’t be dissapointed with this blush. Seductive pink is a mixture of pink with veins of soft peach. So if you are not a fan of true pink, this one will be good for you. Mixture of pink and peach gives our a really beautiful colour and again this one has so soft texture and micro glitters!

Last one on the list is MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen is a mixture of peach and pink with fine gold shimmers. Peachykeen is £18.50 for 6 grams. If you are after effortless subtle look, this will tick the box. It is buildable and lasting power is around 5-6 hours on my oily skin.  Texture is not as soft as the other two, but it is still easy to work with.

Pink blushes for every budget. There are so many brands out in the market and some of them offer so many affordable products. Top 3 pink blushes for every budget.

L to R: Peachykeen, Seductive Pink, 01 Pink

These are my top 3 pink blushes that I’ve been wearing a lot recently. They are good!

If you have to choose 3 blushes, which blushes would be in your pink blushes for every budget list?

  • I absolutely love Wet’n’Wild blushes… They’re very pigmented and easy to blend at the same time… I also have an Essence one, but it’s quite old and not very pigmented… I think their newer blushes are way better, though 🙂 I love the first two swatches, the one by Kiko is a bit too pink for my liking 😀 x


    • Wen n Wild and Essence products are really good and affordable 🙂 x

  • Erin Russell

    I have the maxfactor one and love it too 🙂 So so pretty! I do love the seventeen ones though, they are so good for the price 🙂

    Gemma Louise

    • Peachykeen is a gorgeous pinkish peachy colour, I really like it! x

  • These all look beautiful!! All I use is a £1 natural collection blusher I bought around 3 years ago. I think I’m long overdue a change!

    Katie // wordsbykatie.com

    • I only tried a few things from Natural and the quality is really good!

  • I never tried a blush before because I was scared I’d end up looking like a clown. I really like your collection.


  • You’ve taken such pretty pictures Ela! I love pink make-up too, it’s so beautiful all year round! I also love the idea of a spending ban, I definitely need to appreciate what I have more. As I’m always trying to look for new things, before I’ve used things I already have. I’ve wanted to try the Max Factor Creme Puff blushes so much. They remind me of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes, but for obviously a fraction of the price. I’m loving my NYX Baked Blush in the shade Wanderlust, for a budget option – it’s gorgeous.:)

    • Thank you so much, lovely! It is really hard to resist the new releases, however when we keep buying, we don’t really use the ones we already have, so spending ban is a good idea 🙂

  • All of these look so pretty, ‘Seductive Pink’ is my favorite!

    xx, The Makeup Feed

  • The Max Factor Cream Puff blushes are my absolute favorites, and Seductive Pikn is the shade I love the most.

    • Seductive pink is gorgeous, it even looks good on bare skin.

  • Pinky blushers are so perfect for this time of the year ^_^ I 100% recommend you Deep Throat from NARS, its the perfect pink shade and it lasts soooo long!

  • I love dark pink shades. That peachykeen is right up my alley!

  • 01 pink is gorgeous!!
    Kathy x

  • These are all such gorgeous shades and it looks like they have very similar consistencies. I love learning about products that measure up to the top of the line products like MAC!

    • Colour wise they kinda look similar too, I guess this tones are my favourite 🙂

  • Siffat Haider

    MAC always has the most amazing products. All three of these blushes are so pretty!

    Love the swatches. I’ve not tried these before, I’m not a massive hoarder of blushes at the moment, I seem to have got stuck in the world of bronzers currently!


    • I am trying to use the ones I already have before getting new ones 🙂

  • I love posts like these because i think its so important to reach out to everybody on different budgets! i know this will help a lot of people as well as myself! Thanks for sharing

  • I love the different tones within the Max Factor blushers! I tend to only use cream products, as I am not a huge fan of powders, so I use the Soap & Glory Sexy MotherBlusher! x


    • Since I have oily skin, creamy products don’t last on me that’s why I keep avoidong them. I love S&G products, they are good! x

  • I’m also constantly in love with pink shades when it comes to makeup – in years to come I’m sure someone will discover they’re addictive in some way haha 😉 There’s so many gorgeous options around, especially at the moment! All three of these shades look really pretty and MAC’s Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen is probably my favourite, going by your swatches.

    • Except the pink eyeshadows (girly, pinkish ones), I love pink makeup! I never thought I’d love it but now when I check my makeup products, I have so many pinks there 🙂 x

  • Those three shades look awesome! I tend to change up my blushes every time though depending on the weather. 🙂

    • I really want to get my hands on Hourglass ones, I am just a little put off by the price :/

  • I love the Naked blushes. So beautiful and shimmery.
    Thanks so much for the inspiration.

    Stunning photographs Ela, I have Seductive Pink and absolutely love it, pink blushes like these really brighten up your skin don’t they?



    • Thank you so much! Pink blushes really brightens up the skin! x

  • FloralsandCoralsx

    I adore Kiko right now; until recently I didn’t even know how cheap it was and I was astounded! It’s such a good brand. My cheapest blush is from Makeup Revolution and it costed only £1.00, yet I still think it is as pigmented and gorgeous as the higher end of the spectrum. It is so easy to find alternatives now a days! Thanks for sharing xx

    I must own about three of the Max Factor Creme Puff blushes! The low price is naturally very appealing to me, but when the colour payoff is as beautiful as they are, I’m not surprised they are such a hit!

    Musings & More

    • Colour payoff and the texture are beautiful, it is really easy to work with.

  • I’m a huge fan of KIKO, so high quality but still affordable 🙂
    Nati xx

  • I’ve never tried the permanent blush formula by Kiko (I have a few limited edition blushes), and I’ve heard a lot of great reviews of the Max Factor ones. Peachykeen looks so pretty!


    • I couldn’t get my hands on some of the limited editions I wanted from Kiko. Peachykeen is one of my favourite!

  • those colors look awesome!

  • Rbc Mrm

    They do all look pretty similar! I love using pinkish colored blushes, perfect for this summery weather! I must admit I’ve never tried any blushes from neither Kiko nor Max Factor. Might give them a try soon!

    xx, rebecca

    • I didn’t notice how similar they look until I swatch them. Max Factor one is really good, I’d highly recommend it! x

  • Corinne C

    Thanks for sharing this! I need a new plus and I’m going to check out the kiko one!

    Love this post. When makeup shopping, I never tend to go for new blushes, I dont know why. I feel like there’s not a lot of varieties out there, but seeing this has made me reevaluate that! I love the middle Max Factor one because I am all for a subtle flush of colour.. I’ll have to have a look! <3
