Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Cream Blush is a clear winner here for my vote, despite the fact that I do enjoy a few lip oils.  I have no desire to buy powder blushes anymore, cream is where it's at.  I've listed a few loves the last few rounds, but a new one coming to me is the Ami Colรฉ Desert Date Cream Blush & Lip Multistick .  I actually think multisticks were my into to cream blushes and I'm really looking forward to trying a new formula!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Oh wow, I didn't know this product existedโ˜บ๏ธ @missjeanie . Looking forward to your thoughts on it๐Ÿ‘.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@Buootiful I tested it today for the first time as a blush and I really like the shade and formula so far.  

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Cream blush definitely ! 
I love Patrick TAโ€™s cream blush formula, so good ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@frenchycyrine Oh ... I so want to try these out more often but I'm worried I won't use the powder part of the compact.  Do you like both formulas?

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Yes both formulas are good. I got 4 of his blushes duo + one blush palette (the last one he released and his blush brush as well ) and I would say I hated them the first time I used them. Now, I feel more comfortable with his formula because the key is to start up slow and not go heavy handed. Because the powder and cream are both very very very pigmented. They lasts me all day. Love it ! However, the new shades are in my opinion easier to work with ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@frenchycyrine Lol... I think I'm feeling my arm twisted... might need to pick up one for science!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

As much as I love lip oil I do also enjoy a good lip balm ๐Ÿ’„if I had to choose between cream blush or lip oil Iโ€™m all in for cream blush I enjoy the MILK MAKEUP Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Stick Werk!๐Ÿคโœจ๐Ÿค

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

That is a great cream blush @happyskincare 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@happyskincare Such a great shade!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Oh wow - a tough match up! I think I have to vote for cream blush in the final round! I've been loving PATRICK TA Major Headlines Double-Take Crรจme & Powder Blush Duo lately (who hasn't?), and also enjoy Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush, MERIT Flush Balm Cream Blush, and Glossier Cloud Paint Gel Cream Blush.

 

 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Love the Tower 28 blushes. I'm ashamed to say they last for a few years-if you wipe off the top layer after each use ๐Ÿ™Š @GeorginaBT 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

No TOTALLY @Buootiful - I managed to hit pan on one but I definitely took a couple years to do so. ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@GeorginaBT How do I always forget about the Merit cream blushes??? I need to get this into a capsule collection challenge soon, I remember them being so easy to use!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

I think the Duo's from Pat Ta are such a fun and playful combo. (Almost every shade sold out during the sale. Wow!๐Ÿคฉ) I'm getting really curious to see what's going to win the final round @GeorginaBT ๐Ÿ‘‘โœจ 

 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

lip oil 100% 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@f0r3versummer Do you have a favourite shade or formula?

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Finally I can post again! Everyone is tagging some great products. My vote is for lip oil. My favorite lip oil is iNNBEAUTY PROJECT Glaze Lip Oil Piรฑa Colada . I also like Summer Fridays Dream Lip Oil for Moisturizing Sheer Coverage .

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

Oh love these lip oil recs. I hope they do some Holiday sets for these @Loretta55 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 โ€“ FINAL ROUND: Lip Oil vs. Cream Blush

@Loretta55 I just snagged one of the Summer Fridays lip oils... I'm already hoping for a shade expansion!
