Two words will suffice for our fantasy blush: soft and radiant. The ideal shade of rouge should make us look like we’re in the pink of health, no matter how much we’ve neglected ourselves. You know the look: fresh from the gym, kissed by the sun, and bouncy as a cherry blossom. We need that 24/7 glow—and our customers say these blushes do the trick. Woohoo!

L’Oréal Paris Lucent Magique Cushion Blush in Rose Affair, P900
Jacqueline, 41, Fair Skin: “I got this in the shade Rose Affair. Really love how natural and glowy the color is on me. It doesn’t cake and gives me a flush like I just came out of the gym. It takes some getting used to to apply this at the beginning, so apply with a light hand. But once I got the hang of it, it was easy. This doesn’t have any scent and can be layered if you want a darker shade. Love it!”

Pixi by Petra Sheer Cheek Gel in Flushed, P890
Ginger, 44, Fair Skin: “I like cheek gels in general because they go on with a translucence that makes for a very natural glow, [which in turn] makes you look healthy and sun-kissed. This one is particularly nice. The color might overwhelm you at first, but don’t worry. It’s a very subtle color once you spread it and it gives you a wind-burned (or sunburned) hue on your cheeks. This is excellent when you want to skip full on make up but want to still look made up. A swipe of this on your cheeks, some tinted lipgloss, and you’ve got a natural, laidback look. Will definitely repeat purchase this baby!”

Palgantong Pop Cheek Blush in Virgin Peach, on sale at P630 (limited time only)
Kat, 26, Medium Skin: “I got this in Virgin Peach, and I love it! It’s highly pigmented without being overbearing. The color is perfect for my skin tone. It doesn’t break me out, which is a huge plus. And it makes me feel pretty. And isn’t that what make up is for?”

Missha Sheer Fluid Blusher in Morning Rose, Vivid Coral, and Sugar Apricot, P699 each
Margaret, 20, Medium Skin: “I love how healthy this product feels with the argan oil content. It has a supple feel after using it. It lends a natural flushed glow and is so lightweight, perfect for our weather. I love products that combine skin care and makeup and this is a prime example of such. It lasts for about three hours depending on how much you put. The pump takes some practice in order for you to get the right amount. Overall, this blush is now my makeup bag staple.”

DETAIL Bloom Matte Blush in Innocent and Independent, P180 each
Kristiana, 21, Medium Skin: “I have Innocent and Independent, and I love them both SO much. I haven’t touched any of my other blushes ever since…Definitely beats all my other blushes (both local AND international brands). The blushes are super pigmented, especially Independent. Innocent looks amazing on my Morena skin; it’s a perfect muted peach that makes you look blooming and very fresh. I’ve recommended these blushes to all of my friends because I love it so much. If the company decides to make a highlight/blush palette, I’ll be sure to snatch it. Not bad for my first Detail product!”

Human Nature Perfect Flush Cream Tint in Rosy, P395
Gigi, 30, Medium Skin: “Unlike the usual lip and cheek tints that come in a transparent, runny formula that dries in seconds, this cream tint comes in (as the name suggests) a creamy, opaque liquid that goes on evenly and never streakily. The creaminess allows you to properly blend it in, giving a very natural, glowing blush to your cheeks. Also, a little goes a long way since this tint is extremely pigmented. The glow stays on for about 3-4 hours max (I have oily skin) which is pretty decent. The best part? It’s COMPLETELY safe to use because of its all-natural ingredients and it’s cruelty free. A total win-win!”
