Le Monochromatique, $25

While the pink and red shades were mesmerizing to look at, it’s a little unfair to call this product just a blush. This cushiony cream-to-powder (judge Jane Larkworthy compared the texture to Silly Putty) can also be used as eyeshadow or even on the lips; the product’s 10 shades also include bronze tones and a white highlight. The color payoff is *legit* as judges Daniel Martin and Nina Park both noted—Nina likes to dust some on top of cream blush for a really bright cheek.

“I found the blush tones jaw-dropping. A deep rose, a bright red, a petal pink…. I couldn’t stop staring or touching the soft texture.” —Katie Becker

“The cushiony texture and rich shades glide on smoothly, and I used it on my eyes as well as my cheeks. This was hands down my favorite.” —Kahlana Barfield Brown

“The shades of this blush are on another level. The consistency is creamy so I applied to my lids and lips as well as my cheeks.” —Marianna Hewitt

Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush, $29

In addition to the delicious whipped texture, the airbrushed finish elicited many thumbs up. Kahlana Barfield Brown tested the blush under and over her foundation: “Both results looked super natural, like the color was coming from within.” And Nina found a bonus use: “I mixed this with some liquid bronzer for a sun-kissed flush.”
