In my opinion, blush can make or break a look. It is my favorite makeup to play around with and can impact my whole mood — flirty and summery in a poppy pink, contoured and sexy in a deep cranberry, or fresh and natural in a sun-kissed peach. And now that there are so many different formulations, from cream to powder to gel, the blush world really is a playground.

When I'm trying new shades, there are specific things I'm looking for. Most important: the blend. Anything streaky is going to be a no-go for me. Next: the color itself. A blush that's overly pigmented that makes me look borderline clown-ish is definitely not what I want — I prefer all my makeup, especially blush, to stay on the natural side. Finally, the glow. I love a blush that has a nice highlight and dewy sheen that makes me look healthy and hydrated.

Now let's get to the point: is there a blush out there that checks all my boxes? Give a warm welcome to Saie's newest launch, the Dew Blush. The liquid blush comes in four sweet shades and has a gel formula that melts into your skin for a natural flush.

You only need a little dab of the Saie Dew Blush ($22) from the doe-foot applicator to get a nice wash of color. From left to right in the picture above, there's the most subtle of the four, Peachy, then the berry-hued Dreamy, to the nearly neon peach Poppy, and finally my personal favorite, Rosy.

I love how each blends in seamlessly, whether I'm wearing any other makeup or applying just over SPF. Add this product to the already-stellar lineup at Saie.
