Many of my readers have asked me, Cj what is the best cream blush for soft dewy skin, one that builds to a natural-looking flush? Well we have tested many of them, and found Josie Maran’s cheek gelée blush to be our fav! It gives you the natural look of a cream, and the hydration and staying power of a gel.
This cheek gelée is 50% pure coconut water, 100% pure argan oil for blend-ability, and vitamin-E-drenched nourishment. What more could you ask for? It all adds up to a deliciously dewy blush.

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee Poppy Paradise Review
Art and make-up have long been linked together – even more so in recent years with the massive amount of tutorials and how-to’s online. One cool new trend is water-color style makeup. It’s a bit more sheer than the normal, but gives you a somewhat ethereal, or fairy-tale kind of look.
If you’re interested in giving this trend a go, or just want a really awesome new blush, then try Josie Maran’s Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee.
It’s simply gorgeous. This blush is somewhere in consistency between a cream and a gel, so it glides on smoothly.
The color stays on all day, and leaves a very natural finish; It initially looks super bright, but it’s actually quite sheer, so is definitely not as intense as it seems.
The shade, Poppy Paradise, is a fun pink/orange shade, which looks great on darker skin tones (including my slightly olive tone). You might want to try an alternative shade (like Pink Escape or Island Pink) if you’re on the fairer side.
Application: I love to blend it in with my fingertips, or sometimes I’ll use a brush. You can effortlessly build each shade to be as delicate or vibrant as you want.
