I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend.. I sure did! Today, I am doing my second post in the swatch series with cream blushes.. Most of these shades work well with my skin tone (MAC NC40-42 for reference)..
I have four MAC cream blushes – Pleasureful, Posey, Optimistic Orange and Cherry.. Of these, my favorite is Posey.. It’s a beautiful pinky-mauve shade that looks very natural on my skin.. These blushes are quite thick and creamy in texture compared to other brands.. Hence, I do not use them in summer.. They work well in winter on my oily-combination skin..
My favorite cream blushes of all-time have to be the MakeUpForEver HD blushes.. I have them in #410 and #510.. They almost have a mousse-y texture.. These are my favorite blushes simply because of how light they feel on the skin and the way they really blend onto the skin.. These are the only cream blushes I can wear in summer considering I have oily-combination skin..I adore #510!
I also have the NARS matte multiple in Siam and NARS cream blush in Lokoum.. These blushes tend to be more on the drier side.. They are not as creamy as the ones my MAC and MUFE.. I use Siam for a monotone look by using it on my cheeks and lips..
I also enjoy the Bobbi brown pot rouge in ‘#10 Rose’.. It is a gorgeous shade and I get quite a lot of use from it.. It’s the perfect in between shade of MAC Posey and MUFE #510.. I love this shade! Again, I use this for a monotone look by using it on my cheeks and lips..
Finally, I have two drugstore cream blushes, both by Maybelline.. One is the dream mousse blush #25 Rose petal and the other is the dream bouncy blush #50 plum wine.. These do not last on their own on my oily skin and I have to set these with a powder blush on top..
That’s it guys.. I hope this is helpful.. 🙂
