7 Under $7: Blushes & Bronzers

It's been awhile since I've done one of these so I decided to tackle my favorite category of makeup, blushers and bronzers! Luckily some of my all time favorite products are drugstore that I absolutely swear by an use as a daily basis so I have some good suggestions today! It was hard to just limit it to 7 but I tried to choose a wide variety of brands.

  • $3 NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny has to be my all time favorite bronzer. The shade is perfect for my skin tone with a slight shimmer that gives a gorgeously natural tan look. I love using this all over my face or even for some soft contouring.
  • $5 Maybelline Fit Me Bronzer, I haven't tried out a lot of the Fit Me line but I hear rave reviews all the time. I love this bronzer though, the colors are the perfect sun-kissed hues and I'm actually a fan of the little brush it comes with.
  • $5 Rimmel Natural Bronzer is a cousin of my beloved Stay Matte powder from the same line. Very long lasting, it claims to be waterproof but I don't really see that.
  • $3 Elf Blush and Contour in St. Lucia works as a great transition from bronzers to blushers. Many claim this is a dupe for the NARS Orgasm/Laguna combo (stay tuned for my thoughts on that too!), but dupe or not this is a nice sleek set that comes with two beautiful powders that apply nicely and compliment each other well.
  • $7 Milani Baked Blushes in Luminoso just barely squeaks under the 7 dollar mark but this is such a good one I had to include it. Most places it retails for $7.47 but I found it Walmart for $6.97 so it counts! Luminoso is the most beautiful illuminating peach blush. I feel like it compliments all skin tones and wears well year round.
  • $5 NYX Powder Blushes, I don't have one particular one that I love but there is such a grand selection of colors with a consistently great product this definitely had to make the list.
  • $3 Wet n' Wild Color Icon Blusher in Pearlescent Pink is a new buy for me. Everybody raves about it and I finally got around to picking it up and now I totally understand. I'm also a sucker for the flatter packaging, I just feel like it stores so much better than large boxes, ahem, benefit (but I still love them!).
What are some of your top drugstore picks in blushes and bronzers?
