The summer season is all about keeping the makeup light. Heavy, thick makeup takes a backseat to lighter, cream-based formulas that won’t melt right off your skin. This includes your blush. If cream-based blushes are new to you, now is the perfect time to explore some uncharted territory. Check out our picks for top cream-based blushes!

Cream Blushes
1. YSL Kiss & Blush

We don’t know if this formula is so much a cream as it is a mousse. Whatever it is, we love that it’s lightweight enough to work on both our cheeks and lips. We’re all about a good twofer!

2. L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush

Give your cheeks a much-needed lift and color with just a dab or two of this age-defying blush. The best part is the formula goes from cream to powder as soon as it hits your cheeks, making it feel like it’s barely there!

3. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

This soft and feather-light blush melts into your skin, offering natural, blendable color. Using your fingers, dab a bit on along your cheekbone and blend upward for a lifting effect. Repeat to build on the color and add some intensity.

4. Lancôme Blush Subtil Créme

This blush is perfect for infusing your everyday, au naturel look with a little color. Just dab a bit on the apples of your cheeks and see if your face doesn’t instantly shine a bit brighter!

5. NYX Rouge Cream Blush

If you want vibrant, fresh color, this blush is for you. Featuring a velvety, smooth finish that’s far from cakey or clown-looking, this blush delivers vibrant, fresh color. It’s perfect for those occasions you want to make heads turn, like girls’ night out!
