Creme de la Cream

W‘s beauty director turns a new cheek.

Best Cream Blushes

The last time I tried cream blush I was in high school. It was a dusty rose that made me look like an old lady in war paint. But two new formulas are challenging my loyalty to powder. Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks come in five shades, including the burnt orange Es Vedra and the bronzy Ibiza. My favorite is Moon Beach, a muted coral that miraculously makes my goes-directly-to-sunburn skin look naturally tan. Lilah B. Divine Duo Lip & Cheek adds a brighter pop. B. Fearless— a favorite of W’s beauty editor Katie Becker—is an intense red. I prefer B. True, a warm mauve that convincingly fakes a post-workout flush.
