They lend a healthy dose of color to cheekbones, sure — but they also work wonders on lips and eyes.

A good blush is pretty much the MVP of your makeup bag: It can brighten up your whole face, correct sallowness, lend fullness and even enhance the overall effect of a really on-point eye or lip look. And that’s just when it’s used on cheeks. But what about a formula that’s lightweight, sheer but buildable, maybe even moisturizing or dew-giving? We’re talking about cheek stains, the multi-purpose, use-anywhere makeup formula that can basically do no wrong.

Today’s cheek stains have everything: pH-responding oils that adjust to skin for the perfect tint, quick-swipe sticks that are as foolproof as it gets, soft-finish balms that feel weightless on skin. We’re obsessed, and we’re guessing you will be, too.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up 14 over-achieving blush tints that create the most gorgeous, buildable flush on cheeks — and can also do so much more. Keep scrolling to see (and shop!) them all.
