I do have two true cream blushes that I use fairly regularly. Fenty Rose Latte and ND’s pink shade in the Cheek Love duo. Other than those, I also have several ColourPop SS’s for cheeks that I also use a lot. But those are cream to powder, so I’m not sure that those count. Sadly, I ran out of my Marc Jacobs Dew You Dew Drops and can’t get that product anymore. So, I’m likely going to get the one by Auric that looks similar enough.

Used to use cream highlighter and contour over liquid foundation then set with translucent powder. I haven’t needed a full face of makeup in a while, but I’d still wear cream highlighter every day.

I panned UD Shapeshifter’s creams and probably will replace with Salt New York. (BTW, wow, Salt is buy-2-get-1-free or 50% off for 4 creams and a palette…Too bad it coincides with sudden unexpected expenses, but I’m sure they’ll be worth full price later. ;-;)

I don’t use them a lot, and the ones I used have to dry down completely. If I’m having a drier cheek day, I’ll use cream blush, highlighter, and contour. I’ll also use them sometimes on lighter makeup days. It depends on the look I want, and how oily my skin is that day.

I use cream/liquid cheek products each day.
CT’s HFF is my step three over foundation apply with the doe foot and then tap in with my sponge on my
forehead, cheekbones, bridge of nose and upper lip. It blends so beautifully.
I have many other cream/liquid versions in pump, tube and stick (ABA, MJ Dew Drops, RMS, Danessa Myricks, PM…) but CT’s HFF is the best and blends into my foundation like a dream.
Cream blushes I also use almost daily. I tap them in with a soft but dense Fenty brush 125.
I don’t powder over them (setting or finishing), but I sometimes add a powder blush or highlighter over top.

I use cream products daily- after my liquid foundation I use cream bronzer- either milk bronzer stick or nars laguna, then I use cream blush- I have so many, lately Patrick ta ones are my fav. Sometimes a cream highlighter. Then I do light dusting of setting powder like Mac MSF natural, sometimes a bit of powder blush to help the cream one underneath last longer and then the rest of my makeup- eyes and mascara and CT setting spray.

So easily. My whole face is creams and liquids applied with my fingers and maybe an occasional brush if I feel like doing a light contour. I only use powder if I need to set certain areas for a mask to sit. I have crazy dry skin so using anything other than creams or liquids as my whole routine would be a mistake.

I usually mix the liquid cheek products with or on top of my moisturiser if I don’t want to wear foundation that day. On other days, I wear it on top of foundation using a stippled brush, and then adjust the intensity( if needed) with my foundation brush.
