  1. CHANEL~ absolutely love it and just ordered Revelation yesterday to add to my collection.

  2. I just got one, from Jemma Kidd, but I have yet to try it! :-)

  3. Chanel Le Blush Creme, hands down! I’m planning to pick up more shades later. 😉

  4. I don’t think I’ve tried one since a Lancome one maybe 20 years ago – it was a revolutionary formula back then. I think it was called Desert Rose.

  5. Kate

    Chanel Le Blush Creme. I have it in Presage and Revelation, and having oily skin, I absolutely adore the formula. I bought them in NYC, but when they come out in the UK tomorrow I’m going to pick up another Presage – just to be safe!

  6. Eileen

    Chanel! It applies easily and when it transforms to powder it doesn’t look dry, chalky, or powdery. I also love how easy it is to take it from a sheer, soft flush of natural looking color to something more bold and colorful.

  7. Glamglitters

    Chanel Presage, or any of the Chanel blushes really!

  8. I absolutely LOVE the Black Opal Creme to Powder. It’s great at controlling my oily T-zone! Great for dark skin.

  9. Lancome used to do a Color Design one that I loved — it was one of my first cream blushes, and still a favourite!

  10. Aelita

    YSL cream blush, esp shade 05:)

  11. Creme de blush by ysl is absolutely the best

  12. That’s a bit unrelated (sorry for that!), but I was thinking of getting Chanel Presage. I have some trouble figuring out whether 0.09 oz is considered a normal amount for a cream blush or not. Could anyone please enlighten me?

    • It’s a little low, though it’s not as thick? in a way as some other cream blushes, very pigmented, so it probably won’t disappear on you too quickly.

      • Thanks, Christine! :) I initially really wanted Frivole, but it’s so frustrating not to be able to get the US, non-baked version, so I was thinking about Presage as a replacement.

    Three Custom Color Creme to Powder Blush in Rose. Easy to apply, sets beautifully, perfect natural-looking color.

  14. Donna

    Chanel, just like the others. Yes, it is pricey, but you don’t use very much and I’m thinking this will last a long time. It is marvelous.

  15. I really love the Cargo colorsticks! They go on so silky.

  16. I like the Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy blush in Soft Pink and Soft cardinal.

  17. Lisa C

    Two favorites. Cargo colorsticks – blend beautifully and look gorgeous!
    My all time fave is the YSL creme blush in #5. It looks super bright pink but it blends out so smooth and much softer. The most gorgeous pink I’ve ever worn.

  18. Geneva

    On the bandwagon – Chanel Le Blush Creme in Fantastic. I love it, I was using NARS Lokum or Cactus flower every day until I got Chanel’s new cream blush while on vacation in Chicago. It’s limited edition for the color I chose so I purchased a second one when I returned home.

  19. Sharon M

    I don’t have a lot of creme blushes, but the one I like the most is Clarins.

  20. Tracy

    NARS In my opinion NARS cream blushes are the best cream to powder that I’ve tried. even in my face gets slightly oily my blusher stays on my cheeks.
