I prefer CG's "Classic Pink" to this one, simply because it's matte and more dolly pink. However, even though I'm not typically a fan of shimmery blushes, this one is lovely on. It's more a of a warm peachy pink. On tan skintones, it makes cheeks glow, and on fair skin, it adds a healthy flush of color without being clownish. I wish all the Cheeker's shades were offered in this packaging, because it has a nice large pan of color, and the packaging is sturdy and portable. My favorite Classic Color blush is "Soft Mink", soooo pretty for warm skintones, check that shade out as well!
It had a nice application. Silky texture and nice colouring.
Oh my god this is the WORST blush I have ever used. First off the smell! It smells of strong old lady perfume. The only thing that shows up is the sparkles and the brush is a joke. The packaging is flimsy and prone to breaking. Why did I buy this ughhh
This is a really good natural blush for my skin tone! However, it contains a lot of shimmer and was a little disappointed about that. I wish it was more matted like their classic pink blush.
When I use this, I won't apply any highlighter since I think this is sparkly enough.
I don't know if I'll buy this again, I really like the color, but I don't like the shimmer:/
Well, all the preceding reviewers have basically said it all: this is a lovely satin finish light rose-pink blush with very muted shimmer. Like a previous reviewer, I am also NC20 and yes, this color works beautifully on our skin tone. I'm using my MAC 109 brush to apply as I feel like I get good control and can build up color easily by working in small circles. Forget the brush that comes with it--these are never meant to be used by humans. Excellent blush, great price, who can argue?
I will never stop buying this blush. Ever. It is the perfect tone for my NC20 skin. I love how natural it looks with a very very VERY subtle shimmer that just brightens up my face. It applies easily and stays put all day. The price is outstanding and this is definitely my HG blush. I can see this looking really nice on all skin tones. Either I use it alone or I also like to use this as a setter for my NARS multiple stick in orgasm. Sometimes it smells a little funny baby /powdery but I don't mind it that much.
I love this blush. It is a soft buildable pink that always looks like I took the time to apply a highlighter on top. The shimmer in this is just enough to create a soft highlight but it doesnt look tacky or glittery. This blush stays on all day. I don't like the pakaging or the brush it comes with but for drugstore and for the price I will keep buying this as I have since the late 90s when I was in high school and just starting out with makeup.
I was looking for a satin or matte pink blush, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I decided to give this a try. So glad I did. The color is a satin, light-medium rose pink shade that flatters my medium olive skin without giving me a "flushed" look, and it lasts all day. I think I paid about $8.00 for this at Rite-Aid. I don't like the awkward packaging or the perfumey smell, but for a drugstore product that performs this well, all is forgiven. Definitely recommended.
The packaging is awkward but useable. I find the product to hard, shimmery, and unpigmented to use as a blush. The color is the pan is amazing, applied I get uncolored shimmery sheen. It smells like "old CG makeup" its not a bad smell but its distinctive.
Gorgeous! I have had my eye on it a while, Gives me a soft natural rosy glow. Sheer but buildable, just the way I like my blush.
