Best brush for cream blush...?

By now you all know I have dry skin and lately I've been more and more getting into cream blush - or should I state becoming my new pet peeve? I like my powder blushes and will gladly continue to use them, but I have to be carefull as they can quickly lead to a more cakey surface... Cream blush on the other hand never looks cakey on me and imparts a nice glow, yes please!

I bought some Nyx cream blushes a while back and have used them often. Mostly I use my fingers or my Sigma SS188 (no longer though because of article). I'm on the lookout for THE perfect brush to apply cream blush, in the picture are some options listed that have crossed my mind such as:
  • MAC 188
  • MAC 130
  • Becca cream blush brush
  • Laura Mercier cream blush brush

Which brush do you recommend / use / are happy with and why? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it...

Ik gebruik er de MAC 187 voor, maar als je de 188 kan kopen, is dat waarschijnlijk beter (iets kleiner en preciezer om mee te werken).

I simply use my fingers for cream blushes, but I'm currently searching for a great stippling brush x

I use brushes like Laura Mercier cream blush brush and after applying it I use a wet sponge or I just use a wet sponge :D I am testing the egg shaped one

Ik zou zelf gaan voor die Sephora kwast waar ik het laatst over had. Maar anders toch een kleine stippling brush.

Ja, ik dacht ook eerst aan een stippling maar dan twijfel ik tussen 188 en de 130. Ik heb de 188 variant van Sigma en ik vond die nog best groot. De 130 is kleiner maar iets steviger ook, misschien dat dat beter is maar ik zou graag iemands mening erover horen :), je vindt nogal weinig info over de 130. De mac 187 is toch huge voor creme blush, is dat niet moeilijk dan??

Yes Gaby, it's a bit more hygienic... If you find a good one, let me know!

I know about the egg sponge, I'm not really a sponge person, I just don't like them. Are you happy with your Laura Mercier brush?

Hier is geen sephora pinkfairy :(, anders zou ik m zeker eens gaan bekijken! Volgende keer ik (eens ooit) in Nederland ben.
