Well, when I think of winter, I think of dewy makeup and creamy products and staying moisturized. So, in honor of winter basically being here (at least in the Midwest), I decided to round up a little post dedicated to cream blushes.
Cream blushes are absolutely perfect for winter because they give your face some life and also gives a dewy glow that everyone needs when it is 12 degrees out. There are so many different cream blushes that it can get a bit overwhelming and some may seem a little intimidating (I’m looking at you Josie Maran).
That’s why I am here. I am here to guide you through which cream blushes I like (and recommendations I have been given from many different people).
So, let’s get into it!
So, you may be wondering how you should apply a cream blush. You can either use a stippling brush, a beauty sponge, or your fingers. I personally like to use a stippling brush because I can control it more easily than the other two. If you want a more sheer look, then go with a beauty blender. It is great at giving more natural finishes. If you are pressed on time, however, your fingers work just fine.
Now we can get onto the blushes.
- Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee ($22) I swatched this in Sephora and the consistency is unlike anything else I have ever used. It seems super pigmented and intimidating in the little jar, but it is surprisingly sheer (you can still build it up though). (Color: Berry Bliss)
- Revlon Photoready Cream Blush ($13.99) For a drugstore product, it is a little on the expensive side of the spectrum, but it does work really. These blushes give a nice glow to the face and blend really well. If you want something on the drugstore end of things, this may be for you. (Color: Flushed)
- Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Color ($21) I swatched this in Macy’s and this color is personally my favorite. There isn’t a wide color selection, so keep that in mind when you check these out. Other than that, I find stick blushes really nice and easy to travel with. You just need to swipe, blend, and go. (Color: Amp’d Up Apple)
- Tarte Cheek Stain ($30) A little on the pricier side, but my friend Megan raves about this. She wears it daily and always has this really nice glow to her. Since it is a stain, it is long lasting, which is great if you want a nice flush all day. (Color: Fearless)
- Stila Convertible Color ($25) Everyone raves about how amazing this convertible color is. It is a lip and cheek color that comes in eight colors (not a large selection, but there are some beautiful colors). I love that it is a multipurpose color because you can easily carry it around. It is a little drying when you use it on the lips though (so use a lip balm underneath). (Color: Camellia)
- NYX Rouge Cream Blush ($6) Ok, if you are looking for an inexpensive blush that also has great pigmentation and just looks great, then you have come to the right place. The NYX cream blushes are really great. The pigmentation is on point and so is the price. It blends like a dream and lasts a good 8-10 hours, but the color does fade slightly as the day goes on. (Color: Rose Petal)
- Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks ($27) This is a great product for traveling because it is another lip and cheek duo product. This lasts for a good amount of time and it comes in a nice color selection. It is a little more expensive, but it gives a nice dewy look to the cheeks. (Color: Pale Pink)
Now go pick up some cream blushes and start rocking your newly flushed cheeks. (Cream blushes are also great gift ideas *hint, hint*). Do you have any #blogmas or any blog post suggestions? Pop them down in the comment section.
