However, I loved the ones I tried from Milani and NYX Professional Makeup.

The blushes I tried — Maybelline's $7.99 Cheek Heat Gel, NYX Professional Makeup's $9.50 Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint, e.l.f.

Cosmetics' $7 Putty blush, and Milani's $9.99 Cheek Kiss cream blush — constantly appear on my TikTok For You Page.

Though the four brands don't offer identical shades, I tried to stick with blushes that were similar.

E.l.f. Cosmetics recommends using its Putty Blush Brush or your fingers to apply this product, so to stay consistent, I used the latter.
