Cream or powder blush. What do you prefer?

Hello, gorgeous!

I cannot imagine the full makeup look without as flattering blush and the huge diversity of blushes on the market in different price ranges allow us to chose the best of the best. Someone might like matte blushes, others prefer sparkly ones. Sometime you might go for cream texture, on other day you’ll chose powder. Our preferences change all the time depending on what type of makeup we are wearing and what kind of affect we are trying to achieve.

So, I wonder what do you usually chose for a blush of the day? Do you like cream products? Or you stick to your favorite powder blushes? What are you favorite brands? Favorite colors? Favorite blush?

As for me I love to use powder blushes and I tend to use them most due to very convenient and very bendable texture, due to a huge variety of shades and effects as makeup companies tend to produce way more powder blushes than cream ones. Cream blushes remain a nice alternative to powder but still require to be topped with powder to prolong the wear and this means more steps of makeup even if the result is outstanding. But on daily basis we don’t always have time for it and a powder blush is such an easy choice.

My favorite brands for blushes would be MAC for lots and lots of gorgeous colors they make and Benefit for just perfect though limited amount of blushes they create. My go to colors would be pale pinks as I have a very light skin tone with rosy undertones and these colors seem to suit me best. And my most favorite blush would be Benefit Dandelion because its very fool-proof with amazing pigmentation, it shows up on my NW20 skin really well and goes with all makeup looks as the color is mauve-rosy-pink. This blush is called brightening face powder but for me it just a perfect blush that I feel confident with!

I will be happy to read your answers and to see what products you really like!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea

  1. I’m definitely a powder blush kinda girl too cos they are so convenient and so many options to choose from on the market. I haven’t had experience with cream blushes but I’m just a bit lazy to be blending them out and then topping it up with powder blushes haha. I’m loving my 3CE blush at the moment but am very keen on getting the Benefit Rockateur blush! 🙂

  2. I love powder blushes, but I’ve gotten more into cream blushes with Josie Maran Coconut Cheek Gelees. At first I was intimidated by them because I didn’t know how to apply them, but when I figured out how to (stippling brush), they look really pretty.

    1. I believe the MUA did’t recommend the Dandelion blush because it might not show up on some of skin tones. If you’re like me somewhere between NW/NC 15-25 – this might be a perfect blush for you 😉 If not – you may also check other blushes from benefit – all of their blushes are awesome 🙂
