Almay Healthy Hue Blush: Review & Swatches

Hello everyone!

Recently, I made an online Target purchase, in which I ordered some beauty and skincare related items; some of which I recently shared in my last post. If you haven’t checked my last post, feel free to check it here. I shared a skincare haul in that post and in today’s post I am sharing a bit from that purchase which is about Almay’s new Healthy Hue Blushes. At these blushes retail for $8.99 each for 0.17 oz of product in each pan.

In Brand’s Own Words:

According to the brand, “This is lightweight blush for a flush of color. Almay Healthy Hue Blush is formulated with high pigment technology that provides true color payoff. Made with sustainably sourced paper. The lightweight formula blends effortlessly and is buildable from subtle to intense for a smooth lightweight finish.

This Product is not only Clean (formulated without: Phthalates, Propyl-paraben & Butyl-paraben and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)), but also Cruelty Free and/or not tested on animals. Also, it does not contain any synthetic fragrances as well.


The packaging of this blush is different from all the other products from this brand. It is more eco friendly because it is made from recyclable paper. There’s a transparent lid on the top, so you’re able to see the actual color of the blush without opening it. The overall packaging of this blush is made from a cardboard material which closes with a magnetic click. There is no mirror or brush inside whatsoever. As you can see in the pictures, the blush comes in a unique embossed design which looks really pretty.

The shades I’ve picked are: 

  • 100 Nearly Nude

  • 200 So Peachy

Nearly Nude

This is a medium nude shade with a warm brownish-peach tone to it. It has a very subtle luminosity to it. It is sheer at first but you can easily build it up to get the desired color on your cheeks.

So Peachy

So Peachy is a very beautiful, perfect peachy shade of blush for Summer. It has a pinky undertone to it with an added sheen.


My Thoughts:

In my opinion, these are very good drugstore blushes. These are cruelty free, fragrance free and are free from all sorts of nasty chemicals. It is a budget friendly option, as you can get this blush under $10 (USD). 

Texture wise, both of these blushes apply very smoothly. Pigmentation wise, I don’t think these fall more on sheer side, instead they do add a flush of color to the cheeks which is buildable. Also, the shades are beautiful in each pan.

I, personally really liked these blushes and I am so happy with my purchase! How about you? Have you tried’em yet? What are your thoughts on these blushes? Don’t forget to share 🙂
