BOTH!! NEVER ENOUGH BLUSH!

Ok that may not have helped but blush is the most important makeup in the world to me. As well as touche eclat. And foundation. And lipstick. And... you get the picture.

It depends on the finish you want. Natural go for creme, strong go for powder. You'll be able to find something in either that suits your skin

I just think it's so much easier to get powder blush even!

I am currently using Clarins' Multi-Blush but it fades quickly so to hold it in place I add a stroke of Blush Delicieux by L'Oreal. Both are great together and safe for the skin = no pimples.
But I have normal to dry skin

I have oily skin so I use powder blush.. I think a cream blush would be too heavy for my skin

I use powder. I actually have found that it looks more natural than cream. I have semi oily skin and when I use cream it gets greasy really fast.

I have, and I actually quite like it. It goes on creamy and has a nice matte finish. It's kind of an "I-just-ran-a-mile" look.

Powder, for me is easier to apply and stays longer.

I too have oily skin & use powder blush. It's definitely possible to get a natural look with it.

Powder blush will rid you of the shine do to oily skin.

Also, I find cream blush application to be a pain in the butt. If you apply it with fingers you end up with more blush on your fingers than on you cheeks. It you apply it with a brush it goes on unevenly and looks strange.

I suggest going with powder.

^ Some people use a foundation brush to help with cream blush (I think fingers, then brush). I don't like using my fingers, but I also don't like brushes you have to wash everytime you use them ... just because of the extra work

My skin is poised to break out at all times given the slightest encouragement, and I think cream blush would give me more blackheads that I do not need.

The cream blushes are easier to apply if they really are creamy and not liquid or gel like some are.

I have a clinique gel blush that it´s a bit hard to apply, but if you are using foundation, it does smooth better because you already have a base to start with and to blend in.
If you are wearing nothing except moisturizer, this thing grabs on to your skin and makes it almost impossible to blend.

I also like to layer sometimes, like i<3chanel. The cream blush adds dept and more staying power and the powder blush sets all up and adds even more colour!
