Blush can sometimes feel like an afterthought in a world where brows and flawless skin take center stage. But a pinch of color is just what we need when lackluster winter skin takes over. In fact, a cream blush is ideal for giving dull skin the pretty flush and dewiness it craves. A cream formula provides more of a subtle sheen than a pigment-packed powder and the result is natural-looking color that enhances your skin. It’s a foolproof product that is incredibly easy to apply (and blend!) and our favorite way to liven up sad winter skin. From bright fuchsia to a versatile neutral, here are our favorite cream blushes right now.
