I was skeptical on buying it but it was such a nice color I bought it anyway. I use a flat top kabuki to tap the product when lightly pat it on my cheeks and it gives me a pink tint nicely. Sometimes after applying lip balm, I add a little of this on my lips to match my cheeks and it looks beautiful. ❤
I really wanted to love the cheek butter, but it's such a mixed bag. The product does not apply smoothly at all: I have to warm it with my fingers first, and even after doing that, the color applies jerkily and will not blend well. The blush still looks overdone even when applied with a light touch.
The color itself is beautiful--Chara Crimson is a nice brick-berry color--so I decided to try to salvage it as a lip color...and THAT, it's perfect for: it gives my lips a nice tint. But given the price of the cheek butter--$25 at Sephora--I'm probably not going to purchase it again.
