I bought this with the intention of using it as a pale pink blush. However, when i use it I realized it's more suited for me as a highlighter. And that's saying something, as I'm NC-15-ish, leaning lighter. It has a cool pink undertone, with a silvery shimmer. There ARE some sparkles, but they're very very fine, and you'd have to REALLY look to see them. I feel completely comfortable wearing this as a highloghter during the day, and I dont have to worry about looking like a disco ball. Normally I got for a white/silver/pale yellow highlighter but I find this pale pink flattering as well, and its nice to change things up every now and then. For the darker ladies, i can see how this would look chalky, so use with caution! Also, normally (as we all know) the brushes that come with these are useless, but since i apply it as a highlighter it actually works perfectly! yay!
Love this blush!.I have very fair skin and the color shows up perfectly on me, it looks so pretty!.it has a strong perfume-like smell but I don't mind it doesnt really bother me.I will totally reperchase!.
It was a bit bright for me, but not too bad. Blended pretty well, and the price made me feel thrifty, haha. I found it kind of... shimmery? Kind of made my face look shiny, like a highlighter. The packaging is alright, but after some use, starts to look totally gross from blush sticking on the inside of the lid. Also, I really hate the provided brush. It doesn't apply well. Hell, it hurt my face.
Overall, a decent product. I'm not a big blush fan though, and definitely won't repurchase.
Very beautiful color! I love this! Looks amazing on my skin tone. Not so crazy about the shimmer though. Could have been better as a matte color.
I bought this blush when I was first trying out blushes. I always liked the dewiness it gave me, but it didn't show up like a blush would. I now use it as a highlighter and it looks amazing. I also like to mix it with my E.L.F Tickled Pink for a really pretty flush. This has become one of my favorite products.
Quick, fun fact: this isn't named after plum fruits, it's named after plum blossoms! The blossoms are super light. :)
I'm practically see-through and I do not tan, at all. I go from translucent to firetruck. After finally finding an appropriate colour powder for contouring, I was still on the hunt for a powder for highlighting. My search among the higher end brands was getting me nowhere...almost everything was a liquid that was super shimmery and/or too dark, and the few powders I found had the same problems. Wrong colour (more golden-based), or disco-ball sparkle. I have no qualms with sparkle, I enjoy it, but it's not appropriate for daytime use.
I was in Walgreens the other day looking a nail polish display, turned around, and this just ended up in my line of vision. It looked pale enough to possibly work, and didn't seem to have giant chunks of glitter. I had a $1 off coupon for Covergirl, and decided to give it a shot.
One word: PERFECT. Sephora let me down, but Covergirl came back from my middle school and high school days to help me out! No sparkle or shimmer, just a glow. I don't really know how that happens, but it does. Looks great indoors or outdoors. Lasts and lasts (7am-6pm has been my longest time I've had make-up on so far with it, so it may stay longer). It blends wonderfully. Some people complain about the smell, but I love it. I remember when almost all cosmetics used to have a fragrance like this, and I miss it, to be honest. I think it's soft and feminine.
The packaging is plastic, but is thick, sturdy plastic. It isn't all that stylish, but it is simple, durable, and works. I find the tiny brush that comes with it works for applying it to the areas I wish to highlight. I just use a bigger brush to blend everything out.
I don't get why some complain that it "has no colour" or "is too light." If you want colour, don't get something that is almost white!
I use this as a highlighter, I sometimes use it as a base for blush that is a little flat, or too matte. It has just enough shimmer to give a dewier look without being too much so. It would definitely be too pale for a blush for me andI am a NC 20 in MAC, (or a shade up from porcelain). I have switched to Palladio Mineral Effects Baked Highlighter #827029 (the lighest one they have) and get similar results, because I like the packaging better, but this Cheekers does a good job and if you see it as multi purpose, it is handy to have around.
This product has mixed reviews... I think loving or hating this product definitely depends on the person's skin tone, type and what kind of makeup looks they lean towards. In my case, I've been using this blush since junior high! Seriously. I can't tell you how many I've gone through year to year. I'm now a college student, and this is still one of my makeup bag staples. I don't ever go a day without using it. Now, with all that being said. I prefer to use this blush as a highlighter on my cheekbones. I put on a blush of my choosing first (usually pink, plum, or mocha), and then apply this on over that. I also use Snow Plum by itself when I am doing dramatic eyes or lips and need to tone my cheeks down. It gives a nice, luminous, sheer wash of color. If you're fair skinned and you're looking for any of the above, try it! For you ladies who have tan or golden complexions, I wouldn't recommend it because it could look a bit frosty. Nonetheless, this product will probably be in my favorites list for a long time.
I don't use this as a blush. Ghostly pale as I am, I can't see this being an appropriate blush shade.
However, it's a FABULOUS eyeshadow. I use the Instant Cheekbones in Sophisticated Sable. I use the lightest shade as a highlighter as intended, but also as an all over lid wash for brightness on days that I don't want to wear a lot of makeup. Thus, I always use it up first, which annoys me!
I've been looking for a cheap alternative, since I don't want to use my good shadows for my classes (Zumba). This fits the bill nicely. It's still in the peach family so it coordinates nicely with my blush, not too shimmery or sparkly, but gives a nice brightness and luminosity.
I have no idea why this is called "Snow Plum." It should be called "Snow Peach". Misnomer notwithstanding, it's a great little product at a great price.
This is more pigmented than you would think and makes a very good highlight. I have not tried it as a blush yet, but will update when I do. I've been liking more matte highlighters lately and this fits the bill; like everyone else has said, it's not plummy. It's a light peach, so I guess I could see the "Snow" part.
