How long do cheek products typically wear for you? Is that long enough?

Powder-based cheek products tend to last around (decently before kind of breaking down / more apparent that there’s been wear) eight hours without additional prep/priming, while liquids/creams are similar but can sometimes get closer to 10 hours depending on formula. Plenty long for me, though.

I don’t really need a long lasting blush these days but I find that most of my blushes last a good 8-10 hours without fading. I use a pretty light hand unless I am taking photos and that combined with my super pale skin, results in a blush that shows up really well but doesn’t look too “makeupy”. I really love making up new words! For the majority of my makeup wearing life, I have layered at least two blushes whenever I am wearing blush. It was always powder blushes before but now I like using a cream and then adding a powder on top.

I am not really a “cheek” person, so personally I don’t mind if my blush / contour / bronzer fades towards the end of the day. But usually my skin doesn’t “eat” cheek powders, the minimum I apply stays put all day.

I usually get 6-8 hours of wear from a powder and 4-5 hours from most creams and liquids. Rare Beauty’s liquid blush is the exception as it would last until the next morning if I didn’t take it off at night lol!

I always use powder blush or bronzer, over a layer of moisturizer and moisturizer-blended-with-foundation. That gives the powder blush or bronzer something to adhere to, and it looks good the rest of the day.

I don’t use liquid or cream blushes or bronzers as they’re too difficult for me to apply so that they look good when I’m done and also later. And they wear off quickly.
