Too much sparkle, not enough pigment. Too powdery to be a highlighter. Doesn't really show up on my skin (I wear C4 MAC Face & Body foundation). Not worth it! continued >>
I have to say that, as a blush, this doesn't work so great. It's not very pigmented and doesn't give that blushed effect on its own. It's a very pale, dull peach with a heavy golden shift. However, when I apply this over bronzer, it intensifies the bronze effect and also makes me look glowy. I get compliments that I look tan when I wear this. It's unlike any other product I have tried and I'd definitely repurchase for summer :)
This is a gorgeous colour but damn its really just not pigmented enough and I've hit pan after two weeks just by the sheer volume I've had to use to make it show up! I'm a skin tone maybe a couple of steps up from ivory so might just be that it's not a match for me. Such a shame *cry*
I really like this color. I have fair skin, so it gives me a light flush of color without overpowering it. I like that it is a light nude peachy color and blends very well. But it has a lot of shimmer, so don't overdo it. The packaging is great and durable, but these blushes do not come with their own brush, so be sure to have something to apply it with. It also comes with a small mirror and a tiny window in the packaging so you can see the color in the pan. The blush isn't cakey or chalky either. It's really soft and brushes pick it up really well. Peachy Keen and Tickled Pink are my favorites from this series.
These blushes are great. I have several colors. Peachy Keen is a very light peach with some sheen. It has sparkle, but not heavy sparkle - it tends to look more like a sheen on your face.
For the price, I think these blushes are of excellent quality. If you compare NARS blushes, you'll notice comparable colors, but these are so much less expensive.
I would have definately have purchased these again and these are often my "go to" blushes.
I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle).
I really like Peachy Keen for its subtle and versatile uses. It can be used as a highlighter, a blush, a bronzer, or eye shadow, depending on my skin tone and season. Very beautiful shade for both warm and cool skin tones, and you get alot of product at a cheap price.
This is my go-to blush for a casual look. It is subtle with a nice sheen to it. I think it layers nicely and is very neutral. I like to pair this with a quiet work look. I like it when I feel low-key but want to look polished. For Elf prices, worth a try!

***Sorry but this went straight into the garbage can.***
This is s not pigmented enough, I can only use this during the winter, and it looks pretty but I already have Nars Luster so this just looks like a dupe without the quality nor pigmentation.
There are much prettier similar to Luster blushes to even give this a try. If you are around my skintone just grab Candid Coral by Elf, it almost looks identical on my skin except this one actually shows up without much effort as opposed to Peachy Keen.
Out of the four studio blushes I own, this one was the most used and loved.
It gave me such a lovely kiss of peach on my cheeks. Pigmentation wasn't that stellar but I was able to layer it until I was happy with the color pay off with no problems. One of the cons is that after a few uses I could see how chunky this blush was - it wasn't very finely milled and chunks of glitter is peeping through the product.
Maybe I just got a weird batch but that's okay. It still worked for me and for the price I can't complain. I wouldn't repurchase this only because I discovered my HG peachy blush - springsheen from MAC.
This blush was WAY too shimmery for me, and because I have blemishes on my cheeks, this accentuated them way too much for my liking. It is also a bit chalky, not all that pigmented, and doesn't last all that long on my skin. I will not repurchase because the shipping to Canada took over 2 months, and the shipping rate was so expensive that this blush ended up costing me way more than it should have for the quality. In fact, I will not be purchasing any ELF products because the customer service was absolutely terrible. I would not recommend this product or this brand to anyone.
