Hi Christine – What is the major difference then between Sable and Twinks? I was thinking of getting Twinks. Am looking for a frosty plum/taupe. Thanks.

I always use primer before applying my foundation and blush, and I mist my face with MUFE Mist & Fix once my entire face is done. With this routine, I never have an issue with my blush lasting.

Setting spray does make a huge difference. Since I’ve started using MUFE Mist & Fix after applying my makeup, I have no issues with my makeup lasting all day, and it still looks great when I remove it at night. I never touch up throughout the day. It’s wonderful!

I find the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes to be pretty long wearing – they last pretty much all through my day. And I tried Sephora’s own cream blush (I think it’s called “Contouring Blush”) last week and was really impressed with its lasting power and overall gorgeousness. There was only 1 shade in the Chanel cream blush that I liked at all (I was pretty luke warm with the colours, though I know many adore these blushes) so was thrilled that there were 2 shades in the Sephora range that really suited me.

I’m still in the process of figuring this out, personally!! I have tried layering a cheek tint underneath but my blush still fades (I work in a building with awful air conditioning, and live in a hot climate) . My next step will be layering the tint UNDER my foundation, then using a normal powder blush at the end. I have not yet forayed into the world of cream blush…! I only own the cheek/lip cremes in the Balm Jovi Palette.

For me, it comes down to blush formula. I usually wear primer before TM or foundation and blushes tend to not fade on me. There are a couple of formulas that do not hold up on my skin: MAC powder blushes and Tarte Amazonian Clay

Best in my collection that hold up: Estee Lauder, Nars, Chanel (cream and powder), Tom Ford, Edward Bess, MAC cream, Illamasqua (cream and powder), Clinique Pop

Translucent powder => powder blush => another dusting of translucent powder. Works well for my oily skin!

That’s *exactly* what I do, also!
Sometimes (which is usually, to be honest), when I’m wearing a bright/intense blush, I’ll sweep my fan brush over translucent powder, then over my [pressed powder] blush, then onto my face. This softens the color, and helps it last on my extremely oily skin.
