Promises vs. Performance: You’re gonna love this MERIT cream blush.

MERIT Flush Balm is a lightweight, buildable, blendable cream blush. The formula promises to never be heavy or cakey, and never accentuate skin texture. It’s formulated without acne-triggering ingredients, and features vitamin E to condition skin. The multi use cream is safe for cheeks, eyes, and lips. Its 9 shades are perfect for creating monochromatic looks!

As the name suggests, Flush Balm has a balmy texture that glides over makeup effortlessly. It easily blends with the fingers, a brush, or sponge and can be built up for more intense color payoff. And, don’t worry if you apply too much because this is one of the most foolproof cream blush formulas! It can easily be buffed out to look less intense.

One of the best things about MERIT Flush Balm is how it works on all skin types and textures. The formula is incredibly thin and emollient, never exaggerating texture, lines, or bumps. It works well on all skin types from dry to oily, just make sure to set it with oilier skin! Setting is also the key to getting a longer wear out of this formula. It doesn’t have the longest wear on its own, but, if you love blush like me, top it off with your favorite powder blush.

How It Compares: Easy peasy cheek color.

Whether you’re new to cream blush, just want something easy to apply, or in the market for minimal makeup, add MERIT Flush Balm to the top of your list.

But, what is my all-time favorite cream blush, you might ask? ROSE INC Blush Divine is easily one of the best formulas I have ever tried and is one of my holy grails. The creamy formula easily blends into cheeks with fingers or a brush, providing a the most healthy, radiant flush of color. It never accentuates any imperfections, from dryness to texture and never settles into lines or pores. Blush Divine applies beautifully over any base, whether cream or powder, without disrupting the makeup underneath.
