I can’t do my makeup without a good blush, simple! It is the one makeup product that ties my entire look together. Blushes have a way of adding that natural flush to my skin, which makes be look more awake. That subtle tint with a dewy glow makes my skin look healthy and youthful.
As of 2021-2022 cream blushes hiked up in demand, brands began to dish more and more blushes in different shades and ranges. I definitely loved to see the blush industry expand so much, which gives you endless options to choose from. While I have some cream blushes on my radar to add to my blush collection, these are my Top 5 most worn blushes, not to mention the other stack laying on my vanity.
merit flush balm.
This is my first and most worn blush. I have had it for sometime now and trying to hit the pan so I can replace it with another brand. I love how compact it is and it wears beautifully on the skin with a glow. This is the shade “Raspberry Beret” which is a deep berry shade which matches my skin tone perfectly.
It comes in nine different shades and the “Raspberry Beret”is the eight shade on the spectrum. It gives a satin finish, it’s easily bendable, light weight, can be used in different ways and contains Vitamin E which conditions the skin.

This may be my most worn blush tying close to the Merit flush balm if not more than it. It is a stick blush that makes application easy with one swipe across my cheeks, and blending with either your fingers or a brush. I love that it contains nourishing ingredients like ginseng, aloe vera (which soothes the skin) and fruit extracts. Not only does it contain all of these, it is vitamin and antioxidant infused which hydrates and nourishes the skin. It comes in three shades and I have shade “Ruby”
chanel les beiges water fresh blush.
I recently added this blush to my collection and let me just say it’s really different in terms of formulation and application. I was intrigued by the water droplets that comes with it and how fluid it look. It is literally water with a tint. It is lightweight, moisturizing and come in micro-droplet pigments that blend seamlessly into the skin. The best way to apply it, is by adding a drop or two to the back of your hands, give it a little swatch for the pigment to come through, then pick it up with your fingertips or brush and apply to your cheeks, temples or centre of your nose.
tower 28 beach please luminous tinted balm.
I love the orangey tint of this blush. It’s very creamy and also pigmented for the cheeks and lips. It leaves your skin with a luminous finish while providing support from the aloe vera and green tea extract. It’s buildable, easily blendable and comes in seven different shades. This is the shade “Golden Hour” which gives a sun kissed orange look.
melt cosmetics cream blushlight.
This is one creamy soft blush that looks flawless on my skin. It is a glow from within type of blush. I have this is the shade “Lynx”, which is a sandy gold shade. It’s in-between a highlighter and a blush that comes in a pearly texture. The finish is a glowing shimmer flush but subtle which can be built. It comes in nine different shades.
I have been waiting for Rare Beauty to restock their Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in shade “Faith” and their Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush in “Nearly Mauve”. Then I also want the Saie Beauty Liquid Cheek Flush. Then my collection may be complete. lol
