Any beauty lover knows that even just a hint of colour could brighten up your face and transform your makeup from drab to fab in an instant. It’s why blushes are considered a must-have in every gal’s kit.
However, putting on cheek rouge could be tricky sometimes since you have to consider placement depending on your face shape and your skin tone as well. This is where cream blushers that deliver a natural flush come in. These nifty makeup products often feature universally flattering hues and have a formula that blends well onto the skin.
Ahead are the best cream blushers in Singapore that will help you achieve an easy, fresh-faced look.
CANMAKE Cream Cheek in 07 (SGD11.92) is proof that you should never underestimate budget-friendly drugstore finds. This cream-gel hybrid has a comfortable texture that feels soft on the fingers and glides effortlessly onto the cheeks. While you may think at first that this blush’s colour will be too vibrant, it actually melts into a subtler shade which means you can easily build it up without worrying that you’re putting too much.
Want a blush that will pair well with your neutral lippies? Look no further than the Milani Cheek Kiss Liquid Blush in Nude Flush (SGD17.55). This 100% cruelty-free pick boasts a blendable and creamy yet lightweight formula that will look good with your MLBB (my lips but better) bullets. Another plus is it’s infused with skincare ingredients such as pomegranate, rose extract and watermelon.
ELLE Cream Blush (SGD24.99) is a fuss-free cream rouge that melts nicely when applied. It’s good for those who have dry skin as it has a rich, moisturising formula that will guard against any unsightly dry patches. It’s also housed in a sleek, understated pot that’s travel-friendly.
Rare Beauty’s Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush in Nearly Neutral (SGD34) is a mistake-proof cream blush that’s a great pick for makeup newbies or go-getters that don’t have a lot of time to perfect their blush. Just a few swipes and you’ll have a natural-looking flush that’s — wait for it — water-resistant.
While all of Fenty Beauty’s Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blushes (SGD36) are designed to look great on all skin tones, the Rose Latte shade is easily the most versatile with its natural flush that would match well with almost any eyeshadow look. What’s more, this beautiful sheer cream blush can also stand on its own and uplift your complexion even if you skip the rest of your makeup routine.
The Tarte Sea Breezy Cream Blush in Peach Sunset (SGD48) doesn’t just give a nice, “just pinched” look but it also minimises the look of pores and fine lines so you can achieve a youthful glow. You can also expect smoothing and hydrating benefits thanks to its “slip grip technology™” that’s made from marine plants, coconut, and sodium hyaluronate which helps retain moisture.
Nars’ Orgasm Powder Blush may be the most iconic product from the beauty brand, but you shouldn’t sleep on The Multiple in Orgasm (SGD60). If you’re on the hunt for a blush that you can also use on the eyes and lips, this pick is definitely what you’re looking for. It delivers a sheer colour that’s peppered with shimmers for a touch of glam. Plus, you can also use it to sculpt your face!
Do you always pair blush with highlighter? The Natasha Love Cheek Duo Cream Blush & Highlighter (SGD63) offers a hassle-free way of doing this makeup technique with its two-in-one palette. It features a rich cream blush with a high colour payoff and a luminous highlighter that’s created to complement the rouge. This duo also comes in a cute packaging finished with glitter accents.
Love the easy application cream blushes offer but prefer a matte finish? Consider getting the Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick in Devoted (SGD80). This luxurious stick blush has a silky cream-to-powder formula that also has the ability to blur the appearance of pores. What’s unique about this pick is Hourglass’ signature triangular tip which makes precise application easy breezy.
