Temptalia Asks You – Do you wear cream blushes?

Do you wear cream blushes? Do you prefer powder ones?


I do, but I generally layer them with a powder blush, too. I find I get better staying power that way!

I CAN’T wear cream blush as when I blend it, it will smear off the concealer from the brown spots!!! OMG! I’d rather keep my brown spots unseen than playing with cream blushes.

I only own a couple (Maybelline), but don’t really use them any more (they’re practically unused as it is), I much prefer powder blushes, esp Mac Mineralize ones. 🙂

I do & I like to layer w/ a powder blush was well, but I’ve never found the perfect one for me. In high school, I used to wear a Bonne Bell gel blush (LOL!) & it was like my HG blush. I’ve tried other gels by Loreal & Smashbox O-Glow but they actually didn’t last as long as that Bonne Bell one. Now I have a couple cream ones by more reputable brands but they don’t always last so well on my skin & sometimes settle into pores so I guess I’m still looking for the best one for me as I love the simplicity of a cream blush.

I have skin on the oily side — so I can’t wear cream brush. I love the look that powder blush gives — a soft blush of color. I think creme blush is pretty on people who can wear it, though.

i am not a huge fan of creme blushes…but gel blush from MAC is amazing…i have been wearing it a lot…also i find those GWP blush stick frm Clinique light weight…though the smell is annoying…
NARS multiple is something that i like too..:)

It’s my makeup of choice. It’s ideal for creating a dewy look or a range from see through to intense. Most of all cream blush is great for creating a base for powder blush. I love Stila’s convertible color in peony and Nars’ Penny Lane.

I LOVE cream blush. My skin is kinda oily and when i do wear powder it smears off, or if i go to the beach and water gets on me it makes streaks! The cream blush stays on me ALL day. Right now i’m into bobbi brown pot rouges.

Love, Love, Love cream blushes..from Mac to Stila..I feel cream are excellent for the summer months when you prefer just a hint of color on your cheeks. Right now I’ve been sporting Cherry cream blush by Mac and Poppy 4 cream blush for Stila. Mac need to come out with more of those Gel Blush..Just a Pinch is so lovely and the texture is firm.
So, ladies and gents if you don’t own just one..invest.

I never liked cream blushes until I discovered Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges. With my pores and oily skin, cream blushes never worked before – these don’t budge!

YES! I am loving Bobbi Brown’s Cheek Tint Sticks from her nautical collection. I wear them over my tinted moisturizer or a sheer foundation when its hot and I am not going to be doing any powders.

Coral and Lilac are gorgeous!

I sometimes wear a creamblush in the summer, when I don’t want to fuss and just wear a little tinted moisturizer instead of my mineral make-up. I do like those little tubes from The Body Shop, they give a really nice subtle glow !

I like to wear a cream blush than a powder one. It looks more natural on my skin. My favorite cream blushes are from Stila convertible.

I just picked up some mousse blush that I am really loving. I was surprised, but I saw them reviewed positively, and the color was one I would wear (a pinky peach), so I picked it up. It works really well for me, and it a much cheaper (day to day) alternative to using up all my Orgasm.

I’ve never used them. For some reason, each time I’ve seen a palette of a girl showing her creme blushes it was all messy and almost dirty. Worse at the mac counter. Yuck. It never tempted me.

Haven’t gotten into cream blushes but I do love the cream bases by Mac..Hush is a great color. They are also good for layering your powder blushes with..

I wish I could. They look very pretty on most people, except I have oily skin and big pores on my cheeks. Powder is probably better for my skin type.

I only have one cream blush – Maybelline Dream Mousse – in rose petal which I do like for a natural pink’ish touch, it does have a bit of shimmer too so generally use it when I’m too lazy about doing much for my eyes. I don’t know why I don’t try out more cream blushes actually bcz my skin is normal-dry’ish too, yet I think I still have an unfounded fear that they may look too shiny on my skin? lol *shrugs*

Love cream blushes (along with mousse ones and powder ones). I sometimes layer too or don’t. Craem blushes have more lasting power and, they can be layered to a more concentrated level without caking and I find they look more natural. Among my cream blushes I own Lancome, NARS, MAC (of course!), & Dior.

I prefer powder over cream on an everyday basis because its a bit lighter….especially for show makeup because i wouldn’t want my blush to be sweating off….because cream will just come off unlike powder…but if its for photo purposes they would work amazingly

I do like the colour payoff in cream blushes, and apparently it makes one look younger.
but with oily skin, and cause I wear foundation, I have troubles with using cream in my makeup routine.
just a tad too messy for my liking, but they do tend to look very pretty 🙂

My skin is a bit too oily for cream blushes, so not anymore. They apply nicely and blend well, but an hour later and they’ve melted away into the rest of my skin.

No, I don’t like them… It’s so much easier to go overboard with cream blushes and I personally feel they don’t look as natural as powder because cream blushes just clog up your pores (that’s how it feels anyway). I’m definitely more into powder.
