Top 5 Cream Blushes

Hi Everyone!
I am a huge fan of blush and especially cream blush! It is quick and easy to use and is perfect for giving you a fresh, dewy look. You can also use cream blushes under powder ones to give your blush that extra staying power. Here are my top 5 cream blushes.

5. MAC Cremeblend Blush in Posey
Posey is my favourite Cremeblend blush from MAC, it is described as a warm peach but to me it seems more rosy coloured than peach! Either way it is beautiful but quite bright. I like to apply it with my fingers and then blend it out using a brush such as the MAC 109. You can buy it from MAC  for £17.

4. Makeup Forever Waterproof Cream Color in 06 Fresh Pink
OK so this isn't exactly a cream blush but it is a cream based product that can be used on the cheeks. The MUFE Waterproof Cream Color's are a range of products that have been designed for either the lips and cheeks or the eyes. This colour is suitable for the cheeks and lips. I apply this with my fingers and blend it out. It is a cute, bubblegum, cool pink colour that looks great when applied to the cheeks and lips at the same time. As it is waterproof it lasts a really long time too. You can purchase this from Guru Makeup Emporium for £16.95.

3.  Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude
Rude is described as a 'warm peach pink with a dewy finish'. This is a very bright colour but isn't as orange as it looks in the pan. This is another cream blush that I like to apply with my fingers and then with a blush to ensure that it is well blended in. You can purchase it from Illamasqua for £16.50.

2. NARS The Multiple in Orgasm
I, like many of you, love NARS' Orgasm range. I own the powder blush and the lipgloss. The colour is described as a 'peachy pink with shimmer'. The multiple is so easy to apply, I swirl it onto my cheeks directly from the tube and then blend it out with my fingers. You can then pat over it using the powder blush if you wish. You can also apply this to your lips too which looks great paired with the Orgasm gloss. It is quite expensive but you do get a lot of product for your money. You can buy it from NARS for £29.

1. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in 06 Powder Pink
This has to be my favourite cream blush and probably one of my favourite blushes over all. It is a beautiful, subtle pink colour that is so easy to apply. I usually swirl 2 fingers into the pot then dot it onto the apples of my cheeks. I then use my fingers to blend it out. This blush gives you lovely flush of colour to your cheeks. You can purchase this from Bobbi Brown for £17.
