Creamy pastas, creamy lotions, creamy lattes…since when has “creamy” ever been a bad thing? Unless we’re watching our calories, we never turn some extra cream down, including in our blush. So here are the top 4 reasons to try cream blush:
Dewey, Natural Look
The most convincing reason to try cream blush is simply the way it looks. The creamy texture allows for a dewey, luminous finish, as opposed to the dry, cake-y look you can sometimes get with a powdered blush. We think blogger Jade from Kissable Complexions offers the best photo evidence the fresh, natural looking flush of a cream blush:
While you can use a brush to apply cream blush, it’s not mandatory, making this a super convenient and quick way to add some color to your cheeks. Make it even more convenient by using a product that’s suitable for both lip and cheek color, so you only have to carry one product in your purse for touchups.
Great for Dry Skin
If you suffer from dry skin, whether year-round or seasonally, a cream brush is a great alternative to powder, adding that extra bit of moisture to your skin.
Because of its deeper pigment and texture, cream blushes tend to last a bit longer on the cheek, making touch-ups few and far between. Follow with a powder blush for maximum super staying-power (just be careful not to make yourself look like a clown).
