7 Best Cream Blushes to Try In 2019
Powder blush is great and all, but not when there’s a chance of it breaking and leaving you feeling totally empty inside. Sometimes, life calls for a cream formula that can be applied everywhere from the back of a taxi to the bathroom at your university. The answer? Cream blushes that quickly and easily blend into your skin for a natural-looking finish. To make your life even easier, the best part of all is that they’re generally fit for multipurpose application, meaning, you can swipe pigment onto your lips and sometimes even your eyelids for a monochrome makeup look straight out of a makeup artist’s Insta feed.
Below, click through to see the seven best cream blush formulas we love and why.
