Cream Blushers

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.

DD uses a Bobbi Brown one that always looks great. They're very good at teaching you what to do if you go to their counters too.

I mean that with a bronzer the key is the blending and I am not sure how well that would work with a cream bronzer.

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!!

Chanel do a cream/gel bronzer in a pot which is nice, no sparkly bits.

I use Une cream blushers and love them.

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 [[ ]]this one, its gorgeous - colour in this pic is off, its actually the prettiest bronzer I've ever had.

My advice is just to avoid any bronzers (or blushers) that are at all glittery/ sparkly, as this is guaranteed to make you look older rather than younger!

Laura Mercier do a good cream blusher, the bobbi brown one is more sticky than creamy but not once its on IYSWIM. Best one I've come across is the By Terry cream blusher. Just brilliant.

Jo Malone does a lovely gel blusher I really like.

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

Actually, another vote for the By Terry one - the best I've had so far too.

orangina Fri 19-Aug-11 10:05:19

I quite like the Benefits Benetint too, but my favourite is a cream blusher by Nars. Just lovely.

MAC Ladyblush very good, rosy pink colour, lasts well.

I second the clinique cream blush, which I prefer to the stickier MAC cream blush I'm currently using.

CalamityKate Fri 19-Aug-11 10:29:56

I've got a MAC cream blusher and I love the colour but really dislike the sticky texture.

The nicest textured blusher I ever used was a BD one from Tesco. Ridiculously easy to blend. Don't think the staying power was brilliant though.
