The only cream blush I have ever used is Stila Convertible Colour. They can be used as lipsticks and blushes. I love it! I bought it in Lillium two years ago, which is a very muted, natural pink color. Then I purchased Petunia, a super bright coral pink. It is super gorgeous. Petunia looks great when dabbed on lips as well. Lillium is a little chalky worn as a lipstick.

Haha, I actually really like Makeup Forever’s Flash Color in #2 Coral as a cream blush.

It’s pretty light and pigmented so a little goes a long way, and it makes a great coral base for other lesser pigmented powder blushes. (Orgasm is very faint on my skintone, so Coral underneath really lets it shine!)

I usually go for MACs Cream Color Bases when I want a cream blushes but I tend to stay away from cream blushes because I always find they break me out.

I LOVE NARSs cream blush in Cactus Flower, which is the perfect shade of pink with a hint of glimmer. I also like Stilas convertible colors, but I hold a special place in my heart for the first cream blush I ever tried: Kevyn Aucoins The Creamy Moist Glow. Im sad that Sephoras not carrying his line anymore, and even sadder that I didnt get a chance to get one of the blushes on sale before they ran out.

YSL Creme de Blush, they smell amazing and melt into the skin and looks so natural. Did I mention the shades are subtle yet well pigmented, cuz yes they are.

And god, they smell sooooooooooooo nice, if it was eatable I would def eat it πŸ˜€

I say it’s a tie between Laura Mercier and YSL cream blush (the ones in a pot which were launched in their Autumn collection – which may be limited edition). Both of their Praline shades are LOVE! They tick all the boxes for me.
I also own Illamasqua, MAC CCB, Stila CC, NARS, Jemma Kidd’s (gel) variations of cream blush but definitely choose the initial two I mentioned as the best!

It seems for me that the best cream blushes are meant to be used for more than one person because I love NARS multiples for the color payoff and staying power and I love NARS cream colour bases to use under any blush to make your powder blush last all day long. I swear I can use any cream colour base under any blush (no matter how little the staying power the powder blush was alone) and that blush is going to last all day and night. I swear by them. I cannot get enough!


Stila Convertible Color in Lillium is my current favorite. I use it on lips and cheeks and can get away with looking good with nothing else on my face.
