Cream makeup vs powder makeup on mature and textured skin

When it comes to makeup, I always recommend cream-based products because, let's be honest, they simply look better. Unless you have flawless skin, powder-based products just don't do justice. The popularity of cream makeup has soared in recent years, and there are plenty of reasons why. Let's dive into why I'm a huge advocate for cream-based makeup.


A more natural makeup look

Powder makeup tends to sit on top of the skin, leaving behind visible dust particles. This is especially noticeable with powder blushes and highlighters. On the other hand, cream products blend seamlessly into the skin, providing a natural flush of color without that heavy makeup appearance. No streaks, just effortlessly beautiful.

Our model Ocean here is wearing our Cream Blush in shade Scarlet and the Cream Highlighter in Champagne. Both products blended out perfectly for a natural, seamless look. 

Easier to control pigment load 

For those who prefer a natural, no-makeup makeup look, cream products are perfect. They blend so effortlessly that you can easily control the intensity of the pigment. Apply a little for a subtle effect or layer it on for a more pronounced look. Surprisingly, even with additional cream blush, it won't make you look cakey!

In this photo, I'm wearing the Minori Cream Blush in Orchid on both cheeks, pointing to the side where I built it up for more intensity. 

It's extremelly easy to build up cream blush from a super sheet to a very pigmented look by simply applying more product. You have full control, so you won't accidentally go overboard, like with a hyper-pigmented liquid blush. 

No tools. No problem. 

One of the best things about cream-based products is that you can apply them with your fingers. No need to carry around brushes or worry about packing them for travel. Keep a small jar or clamshell with a bit of cream blush in your purse for quick touch-ups on the go. It's convenient and hassle-free!

Perfect for mature skin or textured skin

Whether you're dealing with adult acne or gracefully aging skin, cream products are your best bet. They help create a blurring effect, smoothing out any imperfections. In contrast, powder makeup tends to emphasize texture, whether it's acne, wrinkles, or dry patches. Embrace the creams for a flawless look!

Here is a small demo of how my acne prone and textured skin looks with powder vs cream blush. In order to get the same pigment intensity I had to apply quite a bit of the powder, which made my makeup look quite heavy and cakey. Even though I have no active breakouts on that side of the cheek, my skin looks more full and uneven. The cream blush side looks fresher, dewier and more natural. My eye is drawn more to the glow, than the pimple on my cheekbone. 

Cream makeup makes your skin glow!

We all desire radiant skin, regardless of whether we have oily or dry, mature skin. Cream products bring that desired glow to your cheeks, eyes, and lips, making them look fresh and moisturized. However, not all creams are created equal. Some can feel overly tacky or greasy. That's why we put so much effort into perfecting Minori's formulas. Our cream blushes and highlighters feel like velvet, giving you a natural, moisturized look without any heavy sensations.
