3 Charlotte Tilbury Blush Wand Dupes For The Budget-Conscious Beauty

The Charlotte Tilbury Matte Beauty Blush Wand is one of the buzziest beauty products of the last few years. On TikTok alone, videos on Charlotte Tilbury blush have reached over 269 million views at the time of writing.  These beauty wands have a lot going for them, and even those skeptical of trends can't deny that these liquid blushes are appealing products. The blush wand is a pigmented liquid blush with a sponge tip applicator that allows you to place neat little dots of color on your cheeks to be blended out with your fingertips or a brush. The blush has a matte finish and gives a soft, saturated flush. Charlotte Tilbury offers it in several shades, but most fans of the brand will want to get their hands on Pillow Talk, the brand's classic shade of muted pink.


Priced at $42, these liquid blush wands are pigmented and glamorous but don't fit the budgets of all makeup lovers. While not irreplicable, with a bit of creative shopping, you can find several blush wand dupes — just as readily available as other dupes for high-end makeup — that provide a similar effect to the Charlotte Tilbury version for a fraction of the price.

NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint Blush

NYX Professional Makeup Sweet Cheeks Soft Cheek Tint Blush is a beloved dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury blush wands, giving a similar shade and texture as the original matte beauty wand for only $9.50 at time of publication. As demonstrated by TikTok user @casseymariamua, the shade Nude'Tude is a near perfect match for the classic Charlotte Tilbury shade Pillow Talk.


Nude'Tude is a soft taupe with a pinkish undertone. When applied to the skin, it creates a natural, rosy flush, much like the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk. This blush also comes in several more shade options than the Charlotte Tilbury blush wand, so you'll have lots of colors to play around with if you're not a fan of taupe. While the Sweet Cheeks blush uses a wand applicator rather than a sponge tip — so you won't get that precise dot-style application experience — the vibrancy of the color and its simple blendability make this product a go-to affordable dupe for the beauty blush wand.

Profusion Blush Hour Soft Matte Liquid Blush

For a blush wand dupe that can work for even the tightest of budgets, we suggest the Profusion Blush Hour Soft Matte Liquid Blush. Available for just $6 at the time of writing, this creamy blush packs a pigmented punch at an ultra low price, and it's been compared to both Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush and the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Blush Wand. Like Charlotte Tilbury, this liquid blush is a lightweight formula with a matte finish. The Profusion blush packaging doesn't offer a sponge tip, but it does have a cute chunky applicator wand that provides a similar dot-style application experience. Plus, since it's not in a squeeze tube, Profusion Blush Hour shouldn't leak as some folks have experienced with blush wands.


Profusion's shades are fairly similar to Charlotte Tilbury's (Profusion actually has a slightly broader shade range), but if you really want to experiment with matching the colors of Charlotte Tilbury, you can try combining shades. For example, beauty YouTuber Zabrena gives an excellent tutorial on how to replicate the Charlotte Tilbury blush shade Peach Pop by blending the Profusion shades Rosé and Mai Tai for a perfectly blended look. As Zabrena points out, getting two Profusion blushes is still less expensive than one Charlotte Tilbury Blush Wand, making this a super cost-efficient dupe.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush

The Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush is an iconic blush in its own right, but this popular liquid blush is also an excellent swap for the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Beauty Blush Wand. Available for $23 at time of publication, the blush from Rare Beauty is close to half the cost of a Charlotte Tilbury blush wand. And, with such a highly pigmented formula, this liquid blush could just last for ages.


Rare Beauty liquid blush comes in 13 gorgeous shades, but if you want that Pillow Talk vibe, check out the shade Believe, a soft mauve hue. You can see a helpful comparison of the shades from TikTok user @makeupsessions – while Believe is a little more purple than Pillow Talk, it creates a nice neutral effect akin to the Charlotte Tilbury version. Although the shade Believe comes in a dewy finish, as opposed to the matte finish of the blush wands, the blush still provides a natural, skin-like feel that works well for most matte makeup looks.

As impressive as the Charlotte Tilbury blush wands may be, there's always a more affordable way to get in on a trend, and with so many beautiful liquid blushes on the market, you shouldn't let your budget keep you from the flushed, radiant blush look you desire.
