The Big Blush Debate: Cream vs. Powder
When it comes to blush there's always a constant battle on which I prefer - cream or powder. Cream blushes are something that I've only delved into recently as I've been Team Powder ever since I can remember, but every time I use creams I love them more and more. As with most things there's good and bad points about both but I think I've finally made up my mind as to which I prefer.
Let's discuss powders first. They're compact, readily available and amazingly pigmented - what more could you ask for? There is actually something that powders don't score the points on and that's how they never quite look natural, especially when used on my dry skin. Powders tend to cling to dry patches and highlight the fact that you're wearing blush. It's not all bad - they're super easy to blend out and give a nice glow to the face. My powder of choice is Sleek's Blush in Rose Gold.
When it comes to creams, it's all about the natural look. Cream blushes are very up-and-coming in the makeup world as of recently and rightly so - they're amazing for a natural, fresh look. The only downside to this is that from all of the cream blushes I've ever tried, they're not as pigmented as powders but they're build able. That's not much of a problem if you're going natural - a little is all you need. My cream blush of choice is Revlon's Pinched.
I think when it comes to blush, I'm definitely Team Cream. What about you?
