    Illamasqua! Their cream blushes are amazing! I particularly love Sob and Laid. Gorgeous!

  2. Caesara

    Definitely YSL’s LE cream blushes from the last collection. NARS takes second place.

  3. Sarah M

    MAC Blushcreme and MAC Cream Colour Base. Love them!

  4. Sara

    I never use a cream blush so I pay attention to this post ;)

    The only cream blush I have ever used is Stila Convertible Colour. They can be used as lipsticks and blushes. I love it! I bought it in Lillium two years ago, which is a very muted, natural pink color. Then I purchased Petunia, a super bright coral pink. It is super gorgeous. Petunia looks great when dabbed on lips as well. Lillium is a little chalky worn as a lipstick.

    I love Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks.

  7. Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks is moisturizing and is perfect for the winter season.

  8. Christina

    illamasqua cream blush in rude is THE BEST

  9. I have the Bobbi brown pot rouge and the mac cream colour base. They both work fine for me :)

    Haha, I actually really like Makeup Forever’s Flash Color in #2 Coral as a cream blush.

    It’s pretty light and pigmented so a little goes a long way, and it makes a great coral base for other lesser pigmented powder blushes. (Orgasm is very faint on my skintone, so Coral underneath really lets it shine!)

    Lancomes, hands down. Theyre expensive, but so worth it! Unlike other cream blushes theyre not sticky at all, and theyre incredibly pigmented.

  12. Darrien

    I usually go for MACs Cream Color Bases when I want a cream blushes but I tend to stay away from cream blushes because I always find they break me out.

  13. daniela

    to be honest macs cream colour bases(: i love the consistency of these and they are not as oily as their cream blushes

  14. Sass

    Nars Gold Member…love. Its not for everyone, but it looks great on brown skin. :)

    All cream blushes make me break out :(

    Pixi cream blush in Natural (from Target, of all places)

  17. Yao

    I LOVE NARSs cream blush in Cactus Flower, which is the perfect shade of pink with a hint of glimmer. I also like Stilas convertible colors, but I hold a special place in my heart for the first cream blush I ever tried: Kevyn Aucoins The Creamy Moist Glow. Im sad that Sephoras not carrying his line anymore, and even sadder that I didnt get a chance to get one of the blushes on sale before they ran out.

  18. Alexandra

    YSL Creme de Blush, they smell amazing and melt into the skin and looks so natural. Did I mention the shades are subtle yet well pigmented, cuz yes they are.

    And god, they smell sooooooooooooo nice, if it was eatable I would def eat it :D

  19. supe

    I say it’s a tie between Laura Mercier and YSL cream blush (the ones in a pot which were launched in their Autumn collection – which may be limited edition). Both of their Praline shades are LOVE! They tick all the boxes for me.
    I also own Illamasqua, MAC CCB, Stila CC, NARS, Jemma Kidd’s (gel) variations of cream blush but definitely choose the initial two I mentioned as the best!

  20. Taj

    Stila Convertible and NARS multiple. They are so versatile and save up a lot of space when you travel. Love them !

  21. Kajsa

    I’ve only tried one, and that’s from Wet n’ wild, Megaglo face illuminator. It rocks! Great staypower etc.

  22. It seems for me that the best cream blushes are meant to be used for more than one person because I love NARS multiples for the color payoff and staying power and I love NARS cream colour bases to use under any blush to make your powder blush last all day long. I swear I can use any cream colour base under any blush (no matter how little the staying power the powder blush was alone) and that blush is going to last all day and night. I swear by them. I cannot get enough!

  23. Woops…I mentioned NARS and then meant to say MAC cream colour bases but said NARS cream colour bases. Sorry, for the confusion:)

  24. coco72

    Nars cream blush in Cactus Flower… I love it!
    And NARS multiples in Maui and Cannes

  25. YUUUUP

    Stila Convertible Color in Lillium is my current favorite. I use it on lips and cheeks and can get away with looking good with nothing else on my face.
