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.
Let’s face it, Soft Pinch is one of the most popular blushes on the market—just take a look at the over 6.5 thousand positive reviews on Sephora. This matte deep berry shade has all the magic of the favored formula with a bold take on color.
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.
Moodie Blu is a cool, deep eggplant color we’ve never seen the likes of in a blush before. Hot tip: it looks amazing on the eyes and lips as well.
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.
This Grape shade is capital p Purple. It’s especially perfect for a monochromatic look because it triples as blush, eyeshadow and lip color.
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.
