    By Far the Worst Cream Blush I have ever used is The Balm Stainiac Gel Blush in Homecoming Queen the package is a lip gloss look is very irritating to the skin and breaks you out!sister bought it, I tried it and is a piece of Junk I hate it lol

  2. Haute Coutoure from Catrice, its not what I expected, no pigment, very bad :(

    I absolutely can’t stand Guerlain’s Divinora Bubble Blush. The one that I purchased had absolutely no colour pay-off and was litterally clumps of glitter – not even shimmer, straight up glitter! It made me look five years old. It completely disturbed my MSF and was horrendous to blend. I’d have to say that it was one of the worst cosmetic products I’ve ever used, which is completely unacceptable considering its price!

    Bobbi Brown for me.

    You will all hate me for saying this, probably, but I really really really hate Nars cream blushes. People rave about them but I just cannot make them work. Its just the cream blushes though. The multiples, I absolutely adore.

    The worst: Potrouge by Bobbi Brown cause its very hard to apply, even with a brush. Tried to use it as a lipgloss instead, same story there.

      really? I have no issues with it at all! in fact i use it EVERYTIME i wear a powder blush. i use The Body Shop Minerals Blush Brush (looks like a little kabuki), dab it on the potrouge and then dot it on my cheeks and blend it out; no real technique even. and then i apply my regular powder blush and my blush stays a good 9 house, no fading, no streaking, no blotching. maybe its your brush? and I have OILY skin by the way. i have the pot rouge in Pink Raspberry and in Calypso Coral

    Lancome makes the worst cream blushes. Blech!

    All of them! I can’t ever find a good use for them myself! :)

  11. Technically its a gel, but Tarte Cheek Stains! The last time I bought them the product separated, it was pretty gross.

    Pic of it, and I should note, this happened pretty soon after purchasing, I would say within a couple of months.
