Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you might have spotted Billie Eilish breaking the internet sporting hughes of rose, pink and peach coinciding with her nabbing the title of quickest ever liked photo on Instagram. With Billie’s blush on the brain, we got to thinking, what did we do to deserve the simple impact a blusher can have? Recently, the pink-studded product has been trending on social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram, either for extreme blusher challenges (applying a bright colour all over the face pre base make-up) or simply for the ‘new’ way to apply the product (think less apples of the cheek and more high points of the cheekbone).
Blush is back and in high demand, with high-street retailers such as Boots, Superdrug and Cult Beauty all seeing at least a 45% increase in searches compared to last year. So, as a nod to our favourite pink powder, we’ve rounded up some brand new blush crushes we’re sure will take your fancy too…
BY TERRY – Brightening CC Palette Beach Bomb
With a shade for every occasion and a powder formula that promises to glide on with ease, this 4 in 1 palette entices a unique Optical Glow technology that features light reflecting prisms that naturally lift the complexion. If you love a blush/highlighter/bronzer – this is for you.
Charlotte Tilbury – Tinted Love Lip and Cheek Tint
A new hybrid lip and cheek product from the rose studded Queen herself. Available in six shades, this tint promises a just-kissed liquid finish that also hydrates the skin with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. Perfect for a subtle sun-kissed glow make-up lover.
Zara Beauty – Cheek Colour in 3
Now, if the long awaited arrival of Zara Beauty wasn’t already enticing enough with promises of chic and subtle packaging, the thought of a refillable cheek palette containing the perfect peachy blush has sent us over the edge.
