21 Cream Blushes That Always Look Natural

Our favorite super-blendable makeup picks for every skin tone.

There was a time when using blush was akin to dusting pigmented baby powder over your cheeks: It felt heavy, cake-y and drying — not to mention, it left skin looking dull, matte and blah. In other words, it kind of defeated the purpose of using blush at all. But makeup formulas have come a long way over the years, and there's a whole crop of soft, buildable and blendable cream blushes to choose from.

These glow-enhancing pigments feel weightless, melt seamlessly into skin and create a truly natural-looking flush every single time. What's more, they run the gamut from sheer to intensely pigmented, and come in a variety of formats (think balms, sticks, palettes and beyond). And the cream blushes of today aren't limited to baby pinks and dusty mauves of yore — these shades range from intense brick-red (beautiful on dark skin tones) to lively tangerine (stunning on medium skin tones) to shimmery rose (honestly, this one works on everyone).
