I'm really struggling to find a blusher that actually stays on my face after I walk out the door! I just want a nice colour/flush.
Cream blushes just seem to disappear into my skin, and I haven't found a powder one that works.
Admittedly I haven't looked far and wide - but I thought seeking recommendations is always a good start!
I don't wear a full face of makeup everyday, i.e. just concealer to cover blemishes but not foundation/powder unless I'm going out. But my cheeks aren't oily, which I did wonder if that would be a cause of blusher evaporation. Perhaps I am doomed to no nice colour unless I wear a fuller face of makeup? (BB cream maybe?)
Recently I have tried a Max Factor cream blush which disappears.
Sleek blushers - don't seem noticeable after a while.
Benefit I have paler shades or bronzier ones (Dandelion and Dallas). I also have Benefit Posietint which has no effect.
Any recommendations wise ones?! Preferably high street, but I am willing to go up to normal department store make up counter level (Clinique, Bobbi Brown etc)
Higher end cream blush? I have Chanel in the shade Intonation -- it's an orange-toned pink that is almost neon in the pan but looks like a lovely, fresh flush on the cheeks. If I want extra staying power I sweep a similar-shade of powder blush on top to 'set' it. Stila do nice ones.
I have always found the Benefit tints to be quite potent, but Posietint is definitely the most subtle. Try Cha Cha Tint for a more coral-coloured shade that is definitely quite strong, or the newly-released Lollitint if you prefer pinks -- it looks terrifyingly purple-pink before you rub it in but provides a lovely, long lasting flush of colour. You do need to work quickly with blending it though.
(I am super pale and cool toned, your results may vary. )
I just bought one from Mac and it doesn't budge. I was using Laura Mercier before, and Bobbi Brown before that, and this beats them both. I've had a really busy morning and just went to touch up my makeup (not usually so vain but have an appointment)... and, well, I don't need to do anything.
I use MAC, which is buildable and really stays on all day. It lasts forever as well, I use it pretty much daily and have had it about 18 months so far, with probably another few months left ignores rules about throwing away old makeup
