If you are not opposed to a high sheen in your blush, then you may want to check out some of the colors from MAC’s extra dimension blush line. In my experience, Faux Sure and Hushed Tone are more subtle of a sheen than the other shades pictured. There are no large particles but I feel like, for me, they are getting close to a more metallic finish and I prefer satin and matte finish blushes.

It looks like at some point they discontinued the shades telling glow and cheeky bits. I was able to find cheeky bits still available on both the Belk and Nordstrom websites if you are interested in that shade. You may be able to find telling glow in a CCO (Cosmetics Company Store) for a discount if you live near an outlet mall that has one. If you are not sure if you are near a CCO, you can check here (Tanger outlets) and here (Simon Premium outlets) to find out.
The extra dimension blush retails for $30 on the MAC website.
