I actually don’t care much because I strive for that look after a few hours to several hours when everything has mellowed out and i can’t really see the makeup anymore. However if a bronzer or blush totally disappeared and I suddenly looked dull and pale in the middle of the day I wouldn’t be happy—although I can’t remember that ever happening with a product.

8 hours isn’t too much to ask for in either.
I do tend to layer my products though.
Almost always cream contour/powder bronzer and I will often layer a cream and powder blush for more dimension.
The layering, plus setting spray usually get me there.

Of course my expectation is always that anything I wear wears down in the most flattering way possible. I look for roughly 8 hour wear time. Will say also I don’t own any blush or bronzer that doesn’t adhere to that guideline and that’s saying something because I am an oily gal 😉

I have deep tan skin and bronzer tone is the most important thing to me. It must be warm but not overly orange or red. Also, with appropriate depth.

I tend to get amazing wear time from bronzer and blush (I’m very much a powder person for these products) so I rarely think of wear time in terms of purchase criteria. That said, I do recollect the bizarre experience, probably a decade ago, of having Tarte blushes virtually disappearing on my skin. I never made friends with that formula for that reason.

My skin seems to “eat” face powders and I still have to learn not to touch my face, so I do want longevity from my blushes and bronzers. Otherwise in 4 hours you wouldn’t tell I have applied it, and I don’t like to re-touch. And I don’t like when I have all my eye makeup on, looking fine and fancy, but my face is flat because there’s no trace of blush or bronzer anymore.

I also have skin that “eats” face powder, and agree with you, longevity is super important! Most blushes disappear on me after two hours, so the stuff that other people claim lasts 8+ hours on them, is the stuff that may still look like I put on something after a few hours. Sigh.

Very! I really look for it to last decently until it’s time to remove my makeup at the end of the day. In other words, probably at minimum 8-9 hours.

I’m not very lucky with blushes. Msybe it is because I don’t make base, thus I apply them on bate skin, but lasting power of blushrs is usually 4-5 hours. A cream lipstick lasts on me much more than face powders!

I like blush bronzer to be there around the 8 hour mark..if it completely disappears that no bueno …I’m happy with my products so far.

I have had some that wouldn’t last and that’s not cool, if you apply a product you do expect it to last the day, so yes 8 hours is not a lot to ask for a blush or bronzer to last for and if it doesn’t – bye bye!

I like blush to last through my work day. If it fades a bit, I’m okay so long as it leaves me with a bit of colour on my cheeks (of course, this isn’t an issue now as I will have to wear a mask until the end of school, at the end of June, as I work with a vulnerable group of students).

I do prefer a decent wear time for my blushes, as they add colour to my face. And as I have a porcelain complexion, I can easily end up with a drained looking complexion. So a good 8 hours or so is right for me. Most of the blushes I have tried don’t last that long (annoying).
So far The Balm’s Hot Mama has lasted on me the longest (not quite sure if it’s 8 hours), but certainly better than many of the others I have used.

Bronzer has become pretty important to me over the years – I don’t contour but I love the dimension bronzer gives. I have much better luck with it than blush – even when I layer my blush with a liquid and put a powder over it – still disappears I typically never get more than 3-4 hours from any formula – I’ve really only used Mac powder blush and the Nars liquid – I’m really excited to try the new PMG

I’d prefer it last all day of course, but I’m less exigent on cheek products because I have red cheeks that I’ve acquired with age.
