I love this blush, it looks so natural and pretty on my skin. I love that it is natural, paraban free and does not break me out. I used to use Nars Orgasm however I hated the sparkles. To me, this is exactly the same color without the sparkles. I find that it is a bit difficult to apply, and I have to build quite a few layers for the color to show up. However, it is still definitely one of my favorites.
Fabulous, natural blush that gives the perfect color for warm beige Asian skin tone. Looks very natural and doesn't make me break out.
There's nothing to not love about the Korres blushes. The formula is beautiful and they wear soooo well. The colour selection is basic and the brand has not experimented with unique à la mode shades so far, but I do not mind that at all, as their shades are so basic that they never go out of fashion. Their packaging is basic but not offensive at all and is sturdy enough. Smooth, not powdery, not crumbly, they apply evenly and stay put, plus you can't beat their price for the amount and quality they offer you.
Length of use: 2yrs
Frequency of use: 3-4days/wk
-a peachy pink color suited for my Asian tone skin (for ref I wear EDM in light olive, #2 in Laura M fdtn)
-easy to apply
-can be buildable
-does not break me out
-good staying power
-lasted me two yrs for every other day use
-looks good on my skin tone year round (I do not tan)
Notes: Has no glitter or sparkle. Looks matte on me, which I prefer. This is the only blush I own, so I am not a big blush kind of girl. But this suits me for every day and special occasion use as it looks natural. I would buy again however as I am not brand loyal to blushes, I would also check out other similar blushes for fun.
I have always refrained from blushes because I really don't need to emphasize my extant blemishes. But with a proper concealer, I decided to expand my arsenal of already what is way too much makeup with an addition of a spring time blush. I started off with Clinique's Precious Posey because I read that it was flattering on fair Asian skin; however, I found it to be way too bright despite barely even touching the highly pigmented formula with my brush. So kudos for their highly saturated pigmentation but a no to the overly orange undertones. My next trial blush was Nars' Orgasm; yes, I gave in the hype and let's just say the Precious Posey paled by comparison. After a second return to Sephora, I picked up Korres' Zea Mays mineral blush in Peach: three's a charm! It is the ideal peachy pink , leaving a soft flush of colour on my cheeks that looks natural and fresh. It is the ideal blush for everyday wear and lends itself well to layering. What a great find!
This is my HG blush! It's a beautiful pinky peach color. Similar to the other reviews, it does remind me of the color of NARS Orgasm without the glitter, and perhaps a bit more natural (not as bright). It doesn't have glitter but it's not completely matte, it does have sheen to it.
The blush has an excellent texture as well. My cheeks are dry and so some blushes look powdery and/or cakey on me. This goes on super smooth and also blends well. It is pretty pigmented, so I have to be sure to have a light hand. I usually start at my apples and without adding more blush to my brush, I just use my brush to blend from my apples to the rest of my cheek.
Others have mentioned the corn starch breaks them out, but I've been using this for quite some time and haven't had any breakouts.
Overall, superb blush for fair skinned ladies who are looking for a nice peachy-pink blush. Also, its a bonus that its more natural and doesn't have a lot of chemicals in it!

Very pretty pink/peach flush with slight shimmer. Does not irritate the dryness on my cheeks. Love it.
I recently got into Korres and now I'm want everything from this line! Anyhow, I saw a look done by Korres on the sephora website, and the blush (peach) was gorgeous. So of course I had to get it. It is definitely a near dupe of NARS orgasm with less shimmer as a previous reviewer mentioned. When swatched side by side, orgasm is more warm/coral/pink vs the Korres which swatches kinda cool toned/pink. While it is a great blush, it's not quite what I was looking for as despite it's name, there's NO PEACH!!! Aside from that, the quality is great and if I were looking for a non-peach blusher, this would be perfect. I am very pleased with the Korres line and hope to purchase a few other products from this line! :D On a side note, I've read some articles saying to stay away from cornstarch (aka zea mayes) in products, but I've had no side effects or break outs so I will continue to use Korres blushers!!
I have recently converted to mostly natural cosmetics, so this was a great find. I find it to be average to high in pigmentation, and you can easily use too much and look clownish. It doesn't really look as natural as you would imagine for a "natural" blush. I love the ingredients and that I can get the Nars Orgasm look without all the additives. It lasts long and keeps its color. It's a bit less shimmery than Orgasm. Overall I am very pleased with it and would purchase again. (EDIT): After using this for a while it caused a rash on my face due to the corn starch. Had to discontinue.
LOVE this blush!!!!
The packaging is great....very sleek, with a nice large mirror inside. Opens easily and stays closed. A good amount of product (.21 oz or 6 g).
The color is awesome- that perfect mix between a peach and a pink-- not too bright and not orange at all. Sort of a coral/pink with a hint of sheen. VERY similar to NARS Orgasm and Benefit Coralista. No glitter....just a bit of luminosity. I think this shade would be great on every skin tone. Gives you that healthy, summery, glowy look. Very smooth application and easy to blend. Lasted a good amount of time as well.
Price is $22.....pretty expensive, but worth it for a natural product.....made in Italy. Mineral oil, paraben, phthalate, and fragrance-free. It does have talc in it though.
I'm looking forward to trying more blushes from Korres!
