Today, I’m asking for your Best Highlighting Blushes (specific shades, please!). If you’re unfamiliar with the idea of a highlighting blush, it’s the type of blush and finish that adds both color and shine to the skin, so it could be a darker-colored highlighter or a very shimmery blush. The 10 most recommended highlighting blushes are listed below, and the list will automatically update as more recommendations are made!

You can view all recommendations here, where you can also refine recommendations by things like price, skin type, skin tone, etc. and share your own recommendations. If you think you might be making recommendations often, consider registering and filling out your profile as the form will pre-fill with your profile information for you each time!

Thank you for taking the time to add your recommendations to our database! 🙂

I really like Natasha Denona Duo Glow in Alba and Rayo. They are pretty intense for a blush I personally use them in between my blush and highlight.

I think the Natasha Denona Blushes are gorgeous. I ordered two of the duos… sadly I cannot handle the high fragrance of them 🙁 They have such a Strong floral smell and I get migraines from fragrance. Many people have sensitivities to fragrance but companies add it to everything! But YES they are beautiful!!!

LOL, I didn’t actually know what a “highlighting blush” was until I read your explanation, Christine! And I own two of them at least – the MAC ED blushes which I absolutely adore!

I really love that you take on unique ideas like this Christine! I appreciate it as I’m sure most of the people that are on here do! 😉
I would Absolutely agree with Fairly Precious. That is my go to when I look extra tired, which is often. It wakes my face up! I also have Into the Pink E.D.B. But I don’t care for it.
Some different mentions from me would that of ; Hourglass Strobe lighting blushes and Becca Luminous blushes! 😊💕

I love my Soap & Glory blushes in pink & peach I guess they can be considered blush highliters as they do add a pretty but not to the moon sheen and the colors are beautiful too. I also have Luminoso I like it but is not really my favorite for my skin shade I like Corallina better.
