What is the most you'll pay for a blush?

I know I’ve bought some Cle de Peau cheek products in the past, so those were probably nearly $90 or more… I’m not particularly comfortable at that price point, though! I feel like ~$50 is a personal maximum unless it’s really special/the perfect shade and formula kind of thing.

I think the most I would pay would be $50, but it would have to be an incredible formula, make me look 10 years younger and do my dishes

I have multiple shades each from Dior, Gucci and Tom Ford at $45-$60 but the color and formula would have to be extraordinary for me to pay much more than that for a single blush. That said, I’ve paid $90 for cheek palettes.

I think the most expensive blush I’ve purchased is Dior’s Rosy Glow Awakening Blush (Sephora in Canada no longer has it on their site but the one I have is the older packaging – with an accompanying and unnecessary brush – so I don’t know what I might have paid for it. The blushes they do have now are just shy of $60 and I would pay that to replace this blush but that’s probably close to my upper limit.

I need blush like I need the plague. Formerly bought Chanel, more recently Nars. For certain it won’t be Sephora. Omg, they used to be pretty good.

I’ve spent close to 100 for a palette. For single blushes it’s around 70, but these are exceptions, not the rule. I use blushes under 40 bucks regularly.

$40 tops and must be incredible finish/shade. Almost caved for the new Armani Glow but opted to re-buy tried and true NARS. I love the mini’s, it’s rare for me to hit pan even with them. With NARS mini’s I get known quality and freshen my blush stash at a more affordable price point. Just got Orgasm X and Laguda #1 mini’s and love them :).

Most, if not all, DS blushes here in Aus to try are pretty average, so I don’t buy those. I think around the $30-40 mark is what I generally pay for a better quality one. I probably should check out Nude by Nature’s blushes – more expensive than the usual, but they might be better. Sadly, not many reviews of them.
The last one I bought, and have yet to use, is a MAC one at around $35.
