Glossier Cloud Paint: A cream blush so bouncy and smooth it'll give you a flush straight from a Rubens painting. But each tube costs $18 — which can be justified, considering the quality of the product (and the brand’s cache), but you don’t need to spend almost $20 for a really good cream blush. The best Glossier Cloud Paint dupes mimic Cloud Paint’s glowiness, blendability, and lightweight feel, but cost a fraction of the price.
And as beloved as Cloud Paint is, it does have a few shortcomings. Some people don't love the squeeze-tube packaging, while others note that the formula tends to fade after a couple of hours. And if you don’t like a super-vibrant blush, these vivid pigments might turn you off. All the dupes on this list rectify at least one of these drawbacks, along with simply being great liquid or cream blushes in their own rights.
Ahead, take a look at three of the best, budget-friendly Glossier Cloud Paint dupes on the market. And for all you K-beauty lovers out there, I’ve also included a comparably priced swap from a Korean brand just as cult-y as Glossier.
