Let’s talk about six of my favorite cream and liquid blush formulas at the moment!

The Patrick Ta Major Beauty Headlines Double-Take Crème and Powder Blush is one of my all-time favorite makeup products, mostly because of the cream side. It is intended to be applied on top of powder, so it’s lightweight and has the most stunning glossy finish. This is ‘She’s Baked,’ which is the perfect red-toned tan shade for a sunkissed look, but I also adore ‘She’s So LA’ for a nude look.

If you have oily skin and want a more matte option, the NYX Sweet Cheeks Soft Tint Blush is for you. The liquid formula blends surprisingly easily, and the ‘Nude Tude’ is the perfect mauvey beige.

The most affordable option of the six is the Wet N Wild MegaGlo Makeup Stick Blush in ‘Floral Majority.’ The pigment is beautiful, and I love the warm pink shade.

The Honest Beauty Creme Cheek and Lip Color is one of the most beginner-friendly products in my collection. It melts into the skin so effortlessly and has the most beautiful glow. It truly is fool proof! This is shade ‘Coral Peach,’ but ‘Rose Pink’ is my favorite.

If you’ve spent any time on social media, then you know the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blushes are beloved. A little goes a long way, so I only use a tiny amount and the formula lasts ages. This is my favorite shade, ‘Hope,’ but I also have ‘Bliss’ and ‘Peace.’

The Tower 28 BeachPlease Cream Blush is very similar to the Rare Beauty blush—intensely pigmented and yet easy to blend—but it’s in a cream rather than liquid formula. I have the shade ‘Power Hour,’ a unique berry terracotta color.


If you want to multi-task, each of these formulas can also be worn on the lips!
