Purple blush is popular right now—and we think it’s about time. An often overlooked color, in general, purple makes for a gorgeous flush of pigment on the cheeks, whether it’s a light lilac or a deep berry. As searches for purple blush climb, we wanted to share a few of our favorites with you, including lavender shades for the end of summer, bright classic grape pigments, and rich plums to ring in fall.

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Faith ($23)

Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush in Party Hour ($20)

This fun and flirty sun-kissed lavender pink, as Tower 28 calls it, is perfectly buildable, so you can adjust just how much purple pigment you want on your face. It’s really more of a tinted balm than a blush, so it’s packed with skin-loving ingredients like green tea and aloe vera extracts.

Keys Soulcare Sheer Flush Cheek Tint in Sensual ($22)

Ms. Alicia Keys’ brand put me on to purple blush last year. I was skeptical at first but when I put this shade on my skin, it was love at first swatch.

Nars Blush in Aroused ($40)

This top-seller and TikTok-trending blush comes in a delightful deep burgundy berry shade. The powder is super fine, and the pigment is buildable, so you can create a handful of different looks with one shade.

This bright, bold blush transforms into a liquid when it hits the skin for a diffused, translucent finish. The Score shade is the perfect purple we never knew we needed.

Glossier Cloud Paint in Wisp ($20)

I’m a longtime Cloud Paint fan but new to the Wisp shade. The gel-cream formula is easy to apply and provides a natural-looking flush.

Danessa Myricks Beauty Vision Flush Blush, Eyeshadow and Lip Color in Grape ($20)

This Grape shade is capital p Purple. It’s especially perfect for a monochromatic look because it triples as blush, eyeshadow and lip color.

10 / 10

Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Drama Cla$$ ($24)

It’s no surprise Rihanna’s Fenty would have a perfect purple shade of blush. This soft violet shade is sweat-resistant and super lightweight, so it’s in it for the long haul and a late night out.
