Summer days may feel endlessly out of reach, but that doesn’t mean you can’t fake a kissed-by-the-sun glow to keep your sanity. While bronzers and highlighters can create a dose of instant radiance, lest we forget the simple and classic way to liven up our complexion when it needs it most: a great blush! And thanks to Amazon shoppers, we know just the one for the job.

It turns out, the same Los Angeles-based cruelty-free brand behind those rose shaped powders that are almost too pretty to use is also responsible for the blush that’s become something of a cult fave among Amazon shoppers. With an average rating of 4.5 stars, Milani’s Baked Blush in Luminoso is the retailer’s best-selling blush and has more than 2,000 rave reviews left by makeup lovers who swear it’s the secret to a gorgeous glow. Even better? It’s on sale for $7, but even at full price it won’t cost you more than $10.

Like all of Milani’s Baked Blushes, its best-selling Luminoso shade is a highly buildable formula that allows for shaping, contouring, and highlighting your face wherever you want to add a little healthy flush. Its peachy, shimmery finish has proven to be a hit among shoppers who say it compliments a variety of skin tones, making it a universal go-to.

“Everyone has been raving about it for years and I should have listened sooner,” one review said. “Since it's peachy-orange, it mimics a natural flush. The baked pigments seem to show up on every skin color. I have very fair, cool-toned skin and on me it leans more orange. But again, very flattering and looks natural. There's shimmer but it appears healthy on the skin as opposed to glittery.”

Scrolling through reviews for the Milani best-seller, every other shopper mentions its ability to be used as a dupe for arguably the most popular blush of all time: NARS Orgasm. Between its glimmering finish and peachy coral pigment, it’s clear why Amazon shoppers are swapping their pricier pick for the $7 one, instead.

“This is a great blush. I think a lot of people bought it because it's a dupe for NARS Orgasm (that's why I did), but they've kept buying it because it's a great blush,” another reviewer said. “It has great pigmentation, a subtle sheen, and it would work on a number of skin tones. I also love the packaging… its round, open shape and the fact that it’s a single color makes it very easy to go in with a big brush.”

Treat yourself to a sunkissed glow (even if the sun is nowhere to be found) by heading to Amazon to shop its best-selling Milani Baked Blush while it’s on sale.
