I bought three colors of this blush from the website (three years ago now, good grief!): Pink, Peach and Red. I loved them for the first year or two, but they don't have great staying power, which is a bit annoying now. Of course, it could also be that they are now old--three years! And still a LOT of product left! The pink shade is very sheer. I love the color of the coral for the spring/summer, and the red is great for the fall/winter, I just wish they stayed better. Onward in the search for another great non-powder blush!
I remember this gel stain from the late 80's to early 90's. The color was lovely....very sheer, but enough coverage to give that healthy glow. I just may try it again; hopefully it's still as great as before.
I've had the original bottle from 20 years ago of the gel blush, and some back ups from my grandma (ya i know, it made her cheeks glow). I have also purchased recently from the color and flavor shop online the re-released version of this gel. In the red, they are not close to the same color, but the pigmintation of the new stuff is comparable. Both bottles were 0.5oz, but the old stuff is denser, so it looks like less but of same weight. The older stuff is also a true red. The newer bottles of red when put side by side look a tad orange next to the OG. So, its still an amazing product with great color and pigmentation, but is not the exact reproduction.
Who knew? Thanks MUA for directing me to yet another great product. I ordered this from their website and I have been using it every day since I got it. The packaging is practical and not fancy but who cares? A little goes a long way and the little tube should last for a LONG time.
I apply this with my duo fiber stippling blush and this blends out beautifully. No break outs or irritation and the end result is a natural glow. Highly recommend.
I used this product in the 90's. I loved it so much. I wish I can get it again.
This was my very first blush and I wore it for a decade. Then it was discontinued. How delighted am I that it's back? :) :) :) This is a soft, believable wash of natural looking color. No one can tell you're wearing blush - your skin shows through and you glow.
I had to try these after reading all of the reviews on here. I was going to buy them off of the Bonne Bell website, but their shipping is kind of high. Luckily someone sold them on ebay right around that time, so I got them for a bit cheaper. Mine are from England, so I'm not sure if they're exactly the same. I know that the packaging is different. I have Sheer Red and Sheer Peach. You need a very small amount to apply because these are very pigmented. The red gives a nice winter glow and the peach perks up my face nicely.
This is a great blush, very easy and quick to use, and stays on. It's good for a quick makeup, and leaves you with a very natural-looking flush. The consistency is just nice, and not runny (like other types who give a similar flush, but harder to control- eg, Benefit's Benetint), thereby making this really idiot-proof. Definitely would re-purchase...if only Bonne Belle is sold in Singapore. I have a old tube, and a little goes a long way. Mine is in Sheer Peach, and gives a 'glow from within' look. A definite keeper, and at such a great price too.
Ive bought plenty of gel blushes/tints/stains: Bonne bell is the best i have ever used, BEST. You mosdef can't beat the price: $4.25. I can't turn to another stain after using this. Like i said, its the price, but also its the colors, the glowiness is gives, the staying power. HOLY GRAIL FOR SURE.
Foundation is a must for me, and let me tell you, this is the only stain that will let me put this on top of my foundation. After Foundation, i use probably less than half a pea size for each cheek and dot 3 lil dots on each side and blend with a blusher brush! It looks wonderful. Its very pigmented, and gives you this wonderful healthy sheen on your skin that is not glittery. Its a matte glow, i know thats an oxymoron but it just works!
I have this is red, rose, and tawney. All beautiful colors. Mosdef LOVE!
OMG I have been looking for this for the last 15 years!! I had no idea they still sold it on their website. I got one in every color. I will report back when it arrives. Thank you, MUA sistahs!!
Ok, got it, here we go:
Red: Just about perfect, my top choice
Pink: Fades to nothing, needs multiple coats and then looks great. A nice, pink blush
Peach - looks good on, looks scary in the tube. I like it, it would be perfect with someone with a tan or more olive or yellow in their skin.
Rose; - I am very fair and I have to use this with a VERY light hand or I look SCARY! LOL!!
Oh, and as a lip stain this stuff can't be beat. Wonderful. Why don't they put it back in stores????
