Glossier's Cloud Paints feature a silicone-heavy liquid blush formula that's a great for beginners. Because they're sheer and so easy to blend, it's almost impossible to overdo them or leave harsh lines on the skin. They blend very easily with your fingers or a flat foundation brush, though frankly, I prefer fingers because it's quicker and you have fewer brushes to clean.I tried three of the current four shades: Beam, Puff, and Haze. Beam and Buff have slightly creamier formulas, while Haze is a little more watery. I actually found Haze a bit harder to work with because of this, but I was still able to get a nice berry flush on my fair skin. Now, while you can layer these up for more color, only one of the shades (Haze) seems appropriate for darker skin tones. The others do not seem to show up, or look a little too white. I do hope Glossier expands the shade range.The paint tube packaging for these is cute and makes it easy to differentiate between the colors. I did experience a bit of a "blow out" with my tube of Beam when I first opened it; it hasn't happened since, but still, be careful when using tubes under pressure!

I've been a fan of the Revlon photo ready cream blush for a while. The smooth, no fuss, easy to apply formula makes it perfect for no makeup-makeup looks and on the go touch ups. Lasting about 6-8 hours- it puts in the work I look for in a blush and is comparable to higher end products such as Mac casual color. I recently spotted the new floating in love display for spring 2016 and it featured the shades smitten and nude. These 2 shades are the epitome of spring. Both shades are soft and flattering with an effortless look. They give a natural, healthy glow for nude (not illumination, but a refreshed look) and flush for smitten. I apply these with a moist beauty blender for a nice diffused look- however you can use a brush as well as long as it's slightly on the denser side. Fingers work in a pinch also! This product can be layered on for a more dramatic look and sets with translucent powder for a less dewy, more matte look

This blush has a very nice consistency and doesn't feel sticky or goopy. It's perfect to get a natural subtle color of blushed cheeks. It blends out very well and a little goes a long way. Would definitely recommend it's a very good product.

I have no always been a fan of creme blushes as often times throughout the day I feel like they just blend right into my skin. This one though leaves my cheeks nice and rosy for a decent amount of time! Its easily buildable and I didn't need to reapply until i went out later that night.

I love this blush! It is so pigmented and easy to use. It is creamy and smooth and so the application is not too difficult. It also blends very well. I use my fingers to apply this on my cheek. It gives me a natural look but a beautiful look. I use it over my foundation and you can still see it. Some blushes that I have already tried don't work really good because they just fade over time. This one is super good in that sense because it is very long lasting. It also doesn't crumble like some other ones. You can use it for a night out or for a date and it would look casual but pretty at the same time. It's vibrant and so you can save it over some period of time because you don't need to apply large amounts to even make it visible. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
