When it comes to cosmetics, these days, we’re particularly drawn to highly blendable, dewy-finish formulas—like the following faves that we consider to be the creams of the crop. —Vicki Duong
eyeshadow. Perfect when you’re tight on time, Revlon’s ColorStay Crème shadow ($8) is easy to apply and blend with your fingertips. We love that the formula comes in shimmers and mattes that stay put all day. Available in 18 shades, our personal fave is Praline—a shimmery rose-beige perfect for a no-makeup makeup look.
foundation. Perfect for those with drier skin types, Elate Cosmetics’ Uplift foundation ($32) boosts radiance and moisture while providing layerable coverage. Plus, it contains sea buckthorn, linked to improving the look of scars and blemishes.
highlighter. Maybelline highlighter gets a makeover in the form of a water-based gel with the brand's newest Master Chrome Jelly ($13). Available in three shades, it leaves a soft satin shine that can be built up to any intensity desired. Plus, this formula blends easily into foundation for an all over healthy sheen.
lip colour. Smiles all around thanks to NYX's new Line & Load lip liner and liquid lipstick in one ($9). Designed with an ultra-slim applicator, the tip can used to line your smackers while the edge provides full pigmented colour. The product applies creamy but dries down to a comfortable demi-matte.
blush. Toronto-based clean beauty brand Evio knows a thing or two about getting cheeky. Its cream blush ($14) applies via a doe-foot applicator for precise application and is formulated to be multi-use, perfect for a monochromatic look. We also love that the brand is vegan and ethically and consciously produced.
bronzer. When it comes to achieving a sun-kissed look, RiRi knows a thing or two about looking bronzy without being ashy. Fenty’s cream bronzer ($42) is formulated with a variety of skin tones and undertones in mind, making it the ideal choice for adding a bit of colour or contour to your next look.
