We think it’s about time we gave you the lowdown on the very best cream blushers. Unlike powder textures, creamy formulas are super easy to apply with your fingertips or with a makeup sponge. Simply swipe or dab across the cheeks and the bridge of the nose to create a sun kissed, flushed vibe. Not only does this help you achieve a healthy glow across the skin, but it’s perfect for dressed down natural makeup days or layered up with other formulas for glam evening events.

So, what are you waiting for? Take a look at the best cream blush solutions from all your favorite beauty brands here at Cosmetify…

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow

There’s no better place to start than with the queen of glam herself, Charlotte Tilbury. This cream formula provides a gorgeous sheer wash of color which you can wear across the cheeks and the lips for a monochromatic look. Formulated with vitamin E, beeswax and glossy ester, this blush feels moisturizing on the skin.

Another Charlotte Tilbury blush we can’t get enough of is the Beauty Light Wand, which is the perfect highlighter and blush combo in a gel format.

PIXI On The Glow Blush

The PIXI On The Glow Blush is doing the rounds and we can see why. Not only does this blusher provide a beautiful healthy tint of color, but it also feels hydrating on the skin. It contains a conditioning blend of aloe vera, fruit extracts and ginseng, which feels nourishing and soothing swiped across the face.

MAC Glow Play Blush

MAC are another go-to for all our makeup needs. We love their Glow Play Blush as it comes in a wide range of shades from light mauve to jewel tone purple. It also has a cushiony, spongy texture that blends effortlessly across the skin. Wear as a sheer color or build-up for a bold pop on the cheeks.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Blush

Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Blush


We can’t enough of the cream blush stick from the experts at Anastasia Beverly Hills. Build up the color quickly with a few simple swipes to create a wonderful flush of blush. It comes with a synthetic makeup brush on the other side which quickly and effortlessly blends the color across the skin.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge For Lips & Cheeks

This is an award-winning formula from the pros at Bobbi Brown, which is the perfect multi-use product to keep in your makeup bag. It comes in a handy mirrored compact case that is great for on-the-go touch ups wherever you are.

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek

Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek


This is a hydrating addition to the list, thanks to the moisturizing Milk Makeup formula. It combines avocado oil, mango butter and peach nectar which helps the tint melt into the skin. Choose a range of shades, including berry, dusty rose and true red. Plus, it has a vegan-friendly formula, which makes it a great option for cruelty-free makeup routines.

Chantecaille Cheek Gelee

We’re being a little sneaky with this one as technically it has a gel-cream texture, but c’mon look at those colors. Whether you want a pearly pink or a peachy tint, this cheek makeup product is a perfect one to pop in your bag. Free from nasties, this blusher feels fresh and lightweight on the face compared to heavy powder formulas.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Monochromatic Multi-Stick Blush

Want to streamline your makeup collection? Get your hands of this cream-to-powder blush stick from e.l.f. Cosmetics. You can easily swipe this stick on your cheeks, eyes and lips for a whole face makeup look. The affordable formula is super purse friendly and comes in an array of versatile shades to suit every skin tone.

Florence by Mills Cheek Me Later Cream Blush

Florence by Mills Cheek Me Later Cream Blush


Named after all the besties of founder Millie Bobby Brown, we think this cream blush is a great one to keep on hand for natural makeup days. It dries down as a powder so doesn’t melt off halfway through the day and comes in a range of cute, super wearable shades.

NARS Cosmetics The Multiple

This is surely one of the best cream blush sticks on the market. Loved by celebs and makeup artists across the globe, you’re in a good company if you pick up one of these multi-purpose sticks. It helps deliver a healthy-looking glow across the whole face, whether you wear as an eyeshadow across the lids, a highlighter across the cheekbones or as a blush over the bridge of the nose.
