I use mineral make up and am more than happy with it but sometimes fancy a change and like the idea of a pinky cream blush and a cream bronzer to try and make me look a little younger!! Can anyone reccommend a couple of cream blushers/bronzers that last long enough for you to be able to get out of your front door before they have worn off!!?? Have tried a no7 one and I cant even see it when applied, so No 7 is not for me...any ideas??
I would say you might struggle with a cream blush and a mineral base. You could try putting the cream blush on first - Clinique do one called Rosy that is lovely. It costs £16 but you get a lot of product so price per gram it's not too bad. There is a range called 'Une' in boots that have about a million cream blushers but I haven't had a change to try them out.
The problem is that once the cream is on it might get moved by the buffing action of the minerals.
Also - bronzer would be very difficult to apply as a cream IMO, might go a bit streaky.
I am using this at the moment and I love it. http://www.lilylolo.co.uk/products/blushing-rose-browny-pink-blush
Sorry I have confused matters somewhat....I use mineral blusher,mineral bronzing powder on my cheekbones and mineral lip glosses. I do not use any foundation etc so when I said a cream bronzer I mean't something that I would only be applying to my cheekbones(I should have said a cream bronzing coloured blush!!!). I have become so set in my ways a bronzer to me is just a sweep of colour on my cheeks!!!. I love mineral make up but still cannot stand any type of foundation on my face and think I actually look better/younger without it!!
I use the Chanel cream bronzer - its called Soleil Tan de Chanel. Its an odd texture - like a very firm cream. You would need to apply with a brush, wouldn't be able to apply with fingers. It is quite nice, but I dont usually reach for it TBH, I find it a bit of a faff. I usually use [[http://www.debenhams.ie/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?parentCategoryId=59001&catalogId=10001&categoryId=59001&langId=-1&productId=148937&storeName=Debenhams.ie&storeId=10052 ]]this one, its gorgeous - colour in this pic is off, its actually the prettiest bronzer I've ever had.
I love Benefits Benetint which is a cheek stain, it stays on all day and gives your skin a natural rosy glow. Superdrug have done a copycat of it in their range 2True it's £1.99 !! I've been trying it out and I think it's pretty damn good. Trick up applying is quickly and gently pat onto cheeks
