Powder all the way. I have more than a few cream blushes but don’t reach for them all that much as powder is so much quicker and easier. One reason I love the MAC Extra Dimension blushes so much is that they give a glowy, almost “creamy” finish even though they are powders.
I prefer a satin or sheer powder blush, i find it easier to apply.
Definitely powder. Though I do like the one MAC Glow Play blush that I have.
My preference is split about 60/40 powder, mainly because powder blush is pretty much fool-proof.
Always powders. I don’t like the feeling of applying cream / liquid cheek products… and cream blushes are something very hard to apply for me, I always mess them up and can’t make the look good on me.
Because I weirdly still have a more oily skin type, although drier on my cheeks, I prefer powder or cream-to-powder formulas 90-95% of the time. My cheeks will literally EAT many a true cream blush! Makes no sense to me since I’m 63 y.o. and post menopausal due to surgery last March? But hey, if it keeps my skin in more youthful condition, I’m okay with it.
I still prefer powder for longevity, variety of colors and finishes available, and power to last on oily skin.
I think cream formulas have gotten much better, and I find myself wearing them more than 1 used to.
Both! I used to follow conventional wisdom and use powder over cream, but I saw Patrick Ta did the opposite. I don’t have his palette so I used my products and was wowed by the beauty of the finish and it lasted all day with no need for touch up. I am 69 and it isn’t aging either. Bless Patrick.
I prefer a powder blush myself and don’t own any cream blushes at all. I like the finish a powder blush gives and I think that I would not be able to apply a cream blush as easily.
I live for cream blush! Wish more companies made them. Fenty Cheeks out is my favorite formula.
I love the Daniele Sander liquid blush.
Lately creams and liquids. Rare Beauty Pinch Me, EM Cosmetics, MAC Glow Play and Sheglam Color Bloom are favorite formulations right now.
It really depends.
If I am wearing one of my super dewy moisturizing bases then I prefer cream blush as powders won’t apply with the diffuse edges I prefer on them. Powders tend to stick and not spread on satiny or dewy foundations and BB creams.
My skin eats blush……. ha ha Yes, Nancy T.
I have tried the cream-to-powder and it doesn’t last on me.
If I want to be ‘blushed’ for more that 20 minutes, I must apply a cream, then powder on top.
It’s a whole thing. But it’s the only way.
