Regardless of the amount of horse hoof cleaning videos and dance challenges flooding our TikTok For You page, we come across at least a handful of creators singing their praises for Rare Beauty’s liquid blush.
Highly pigmented, you only need a few drops per application to get a fully flushed, dewy, sunkissed look. The lightweight formula is also infused with soothing and nourishing skin care ingredients such as lotus, gardenia and white water lily. You can even blend the formula over dark circles and under your favourite concealer to minimise shadow using the TikTok blush under eyes hack, too.
The only downside is that the liquid blush’s popularity has resulted in the product being consistently sold out. And while we're happy to sign up for a spot on the lengthy waitlist, we want something we can use in the interim.
That’s where these Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush dupes come in…
#1 Flower Blush Bomb Color Drops for Cheeks in ‘Melon’
Trust resident rain-lover and the physical embodiment of Piscean whimsy, Drew Barrymore, to bring us an equally lovely liquid blush at a mere fraction of the price.
Flower Blush Bomb Color Drops for Cheeks in ‘Melon’ ($6.99 at Chemist Warehouse) is a peppy, watermelon-pink liquid blush formula that packs a punch of healthy, dewy cheek colour. It’s also an uncanny doppelganger for Rare Beauty’s liquid blush in the shade ‘Lucky’.
#2 ColourPop Serum Blush in ‘Bubbles’
The ColourPop Serum Blush in ‘Bubbles’ ($10.40 at ColourPop) isn’t just a great dupe, it also boasts a glass-skin finish that not even Rare Beauty can rival. Infused with hyaluronic acid and vitamins C and E, this beaming flush of a blush helps to hydrate and brighten the complexion too.
#3 Revolution Blush Bomb Cream Blusher in ‘Peach Filter’
While it may be the exxiest option on this list, forking over $12 for the Revolution Blush Bomb Cream Blusher in ‘Peach Filter’ ($12 at Revolution Beauty), seems a mere pittance when you consider how similar in finish and feel this stuff is to Rare Beauty’s liquid blush.
This lightweight, dewy, sunkissed cheek colour is enriched with vitamin E and packs the same pigmented punch we’ve come to know and love from Liquid Pinch.
