A cream blusher may be the most loved product on beauty influencers and makeup enthusiasts lists right now and we’re here for it. From subtle flushed cheeks to pure pink under-eyes, it seems to be a rosy glow that everyone can’t get enough of right now!
New cream blush makeup trends have been circulating the internet with the ‘clean girl’ or even ‘cold girl’ makeup aesthetics being increasingly popular thanks to social platforms like TikTok.
Now is the best time to hop on the new cream blush craze and to make it even easier we’ve created a round-up of all the best cream blush products for flushed cheeks.
What is a cream blush?
Cream blushers come packaged in a number of different ways such as stick, compact or bottle and can be applied straight from the container to the face with the fingers or makeup brush. Its finish is usually slightly different to that of a powder blush, usually creating a more natural pop of colour.
The beauty of a cream blusher is that if you choose the best cream blusher on the market it will usually melt into the skin like butter to create a natural, dewy pop of colour to the cheeks.
You may find that your powder blushers have a greater longevity with stronger pigmentation that stays visible on the skin throughout the day, but cream blush gives (in our opinion) a much nicer finish. Cream blush tends to be more translucent than a powder blush, the best cream blush usually blends flawlessly into the skin, giving a “glow from within” type of appearance.
Cream blush certainly looks a lot more natural than a powder blush, so if you’re more drawn to a natural makeup look then opting for a cream blusher could be the best route for you.
