Yesterday HD asked me one simple question ” which is your favourite cream blush? ” I was like “Huh? I like all”. On regular basis you use your products depending on your mood or liking or how well a particular blush goes with your makeup. Later I realized that since we have so many option of cream blushes available on IMBB, it’s very difficult to choose just one. I went through all my cream blushes again – swatched them, tried them.Here is what I think .
I have had no breakouts with any of these blushes . Blush Ratings are comparative.
Price : Rs 1600/- for 10 ml
Pros : Excellent pigmentation. Is a buildable blush. Comes in pump bottle so easier to use. 14 shades to choose from . Stays on all day long. Looks natural. Doesn’t go patchy. Easier to carry. You can try it before purchasing. Can be used both during day and night. Not sticky. Love the shade. Gives a nice dewy look.
Cons : Very expensive. If you pump more product, you cannot put it back. MUFE blushes are available only in Mumbai, India.
Recommend : I can blindly recommend this to anyone.
Rating : :-* :-*:-*:-*
Price : Rs 1300/- for 6m product
Pros : Multi purpose- can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips. Is quite shimmery so can be used mainly for evenings. Blends easily. Water proof. Stays all day long. shimmer is fine. Not sticky. Zero stickiness.
Cons : Comes in a pot so not very hygienic. Can be difficult to blend at times. If you don’t blend it quickly it would dry and set. MUFE blushes are available only in Mumbai, India.
Rating : :-* :-*:-* + 0.5
Recommend : If you are picking a blush from MUFE, pick up HD blush not aqua cream.
Price Rs 650 for 6 gm
Pros : Super creamy so easy to blend. Looks natural. Doesn’t melt. Is buildable so you don’t have to worry about going overboard with it. Stays on all day long. Decently priced.Gives a nice dewy finish. You get a lot of product for the price. Not sticky.
Cons : NYX blushes are available only in Bangalore and Mumbai. Testers are gross so you can’t even think about trying. Limited shade selection available in India.The product in pan would melt in summers. Also since it’s not in pot, I would have to store it in a fridge. Pot packaging – unhygienic . Use Q tips.
Rating : :-* :-*:-*:-*
Recommend : Pick up NYX blushes only if you are convinced about the shade. You won’t be able to try them.
Price : Rs 720
Pros : Most pigmented among all. I am :inlove: with the shade. Goes well when I have applied primer as a base. Stays on all day long. Easy to blend. 15 shades to choose from. Worth the price. Stays on all day long. Not sticky.Paraben free. Can try at the store.
Cons : It’s so pigmented that you can easily go overboard with it. Eats up my foundation and gets patchy after a few hours if I have not applied a primer. Pot packaging – gross. Inglot blushes are available only in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata.
Recommend: I highly suggest that you try Inglot blushes for a full day before purchasing.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge- Cabo Coral

Gives dewy look to cheeks. Looks very natural.Can be used on both lips and cheeks. You’d fall in love with the packaging. 11 ml product.
Cons : Doesn’t stay on all day long. Gives a shiny look to cheeks. I find it a little sticky. Bobbi Brown blushes are not available in India.People with oily skin might not like it. It barely shows on my lips and stays on for 40-45 minutes.
Recommend : Only for people with dry skin.

Hope this cream blush comparison helps. 🙂
Other that these I have also tried MAC cream blush for a day. I found it very sticky. Even after half an hour of application I could feel the stickiness on my cheeks. I might try it again in winters.
