Who among us doesn't love a multitasking beauty product? Strobing blushes might just be the next dual-use product to add to your arsenal: They're perfect for streamlining your routine since they deposit color and shine onto your cheeks in one fell swoop.
Matte products have their time and place, but there's just something special about a great shimmer blush that adds such a lovely, natural glow to your complexion. Lucky for us, more and more brands have been adding shimmer-packed blushes to their lineups, from cult favorites like the Milani Baked Blushes all the way up to brand new faves like the ultra-luxe Natasha Denona Diamond & Blush Palette. Ready to get your highlight and blush on (at the same time)? Keep on reading for 14 of our favorite strobing blushes.
Hourglass recently updated its blush collection with a new strobing line and it definitely measures up to the high bar the brand has set. Finely milled and delicately shimmery, these blushes add a lit-from-within highlight that's ideal for that glamorously windswept model-off-duty look.
They may be jam-packed with metallic shimmer and sparkly glitter but don't let that intimidate you: These highlighting blushes are actually quite flattering and surprisingly wearable. The sparkle game is insane and while the shimmer outstrips the pigment, they still work as blushers (especially the two darker shades).
How adorable is the packaging on these bad boys? The formula itself is equally as stellar since it's super pigmented with a fine shimmer. While the color has some major punch, the highlight is of the more subtle variety and adds a healthy, natural glow to your complexion.
With shades that range from ivory nude to rich bronze, these multi-purpose powders don't all technically count as blushes (though the Amber Light shade most certainly does). The outer rim is matte and the inner circle is shimmery — mix them together and you're well on your way to rosy cheeks with just the perfect amount of glow. Plus, between the flattering, neutral shade and the finely-milled, pigmented formula, there's something almost foolproof about this blush.
