Hi Christine – What is the major difference then between Sable and Twinks? I was thinking of getting Twinks. Am looking for a frosty plum/taupe. Thanks.

okay seriously the “: x” smiley should not look the way it does when it’s published. that just looks scary and makes it look like i’m trying to be mean instead of embarrassed lmao

I always use primer before applying my foundation and blush, and I mist my face with MUFE Mist & Fix once my entire face is done. With this routine, I never have an issue with my blush lasting.

I wear Chanel’s cream blush in Affinite. Seriously, that stuff just *works*. I never have to touch up, or do anything special. Love!

If I’m wearing one of the only two others I’ve ever tried, I tend to use such a light hand that I probably wouldn’t notice if it went away, to be honest 😛 I also have dry cheeks, which probably helps?

Setting spray does make a huge difference. Since I’ve started using MUFE Mist & Fix after applying my makeup, I have no issues with my makeup lasting all day, and it still looks great when I remove it at night. I never touch up throughout the day. It’s wonderful!

I find the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes to be pretty long wearing – they last pretty much all through my day. And I tried Sephora’s own cream blush (I think it’s called “Contouring Blush”) last week and was really impressed with its lasting power and overall gorgeousness. There was only 1 shade in the Chanel cream blush that I liked at all (I was pretty luke warm with the colours, though I know many adore these blushes) so was thrilled that there were 2 shades in the Sephora range that really suited me.

I’m still in the process of figuring this out, personally!! I have tried layering a cheek tint underneath but my blush still fades (I work in a building with awful air conditioning, and live in a hot climate) . My next step will be layering the tint UNDER my foundation, then using a normal powder blush at the end. I have not yet forayed into the world of cream blush…! I only own the cheek/lip cremes in the Balm Jovi Palette.

For me, it comes down to blush formula. I usually wear primer before TM or foundation and blushes tend to not fade on me. There are a couple of formulas that do not hold up on my skin: MAC powder blushes and Tarte Amazonian Clay

Best in my collection that hold up: Estee Lauder, Nars, Chanel (cream and powder), Tom Ford, Edward Bess, MAC cream, Illamasqua (cream and powder), Clinique Pop

Translucent powder => powder blush => another dusting of translucent powder. Works well for my oily skin!

That’s *exactly* what I do, also!
Sometimes (which is usually, to be honest), when I’m wearing a bright/intense blush, I’ll sweep my fan brush over translucent powder, then over my [pressed powder] blush, then onto my face. This softens the color, and helps it last on my extremely oily skin.

I always use primer but it never occurred to me that it could help with blush. I still feel sometimes like I don’t have it on at the end of the day. So I’ve started doing the powder-over-cream two-blush system and that helps.

I don’t do anything special. Oddly enough, even though most of my face is obscenely oily, my cheeks are fairly normal, so blush wears well on me. Besides, I’m blessed with good natural coloring, so I look all right even if my blush does fade.

I use Le Blush Creme de Chanel, layer it over my foundation with my fingertips and it simply lasts all day.

I always use a primer and my blushes are always powder and I never have a problem with them staying on. A problem I DO have is them darkening as the day goes on due to my oily skin. Bizarre how that works =/

It rarely lasts all day.
Other than some NARs and some Tarte blushes, nothing I do gets them to last all day.
But the closest is cream blush, followed by powder blush, light powder and then more blush.

With NARS and Tarte, I don’t need the powder and second application!
