BLOG Review - Cream Blush Overview

Cream Blush is one of the best blush types to give your skin (cheeks) that "natural" glowy appearance. I was never a big user though of cream blush until 2 years ago, when I was 19/20 I brought my first cream blush, which was MAC's Blush Creme in uncommon. It was then I started buying more & more & well you guessed it.........More!
The texure is a bit of getting used too and I was wearing it the time when my skin was much more oily too, so I found that the cream blush did not last as long as powder blush did, but never the less a good matte primer and that did help a lot. 
My skin type as changed a lot now, it's definitely is now combination skin oy vey!!
I will review each blush in order from Price starting from Low to high.

For blending in the blush I use one of these 2 Sigma Brushes, the Duo fiber brush is great for applying a little color on the cheeks & the Angled Top Synthetic Kabuki is great for applying more color and blending it out to make it look really smooth.

Till next time


  1. I love the ELF all-over color stick! I have it in Pink Lemonade! You're right though... the consistency is hard to blend, but I just mix a little of the color with some facial moisturizer and Voila!
