Cream blush is an efficient way to brighten things up after months of sun deprivation (fellow Seattleites can commiserate here). Or if you've had enough bleary eyed late nights responding to emails, and 3am fire drills initiated by a crying toddler to make utter exhaustion the new norm.
Lash curler + RMS UnCoverup + Luminizer + one of these Honest Beauty blushes are a great template to have in your kit. Particularly new moms, frequent travelers, or subscribers to the 90's no-makeup-makeup aesthetic that's enjoying a resurgence.
I love the look of cream blushes, but they always vanish on me after about 90 minutes. These little beauties, however, actually last! They're not dewy, but they're neither powdery or mattifying. It's a soft, diffused pigment with high opacity. They layer well over bare skin, cream or powder foundations. And while you could use a brush to apply, but for the sake of ease, I prefer fingertips.
