This is so beautiful, but I'm so sad bc it barely shows on me :(
It takes a few swipes for me to get some color (NC35, Latina) and I don't know if it's bc it has the light highlight veining or it's just my skin -which really eats up color. At the end of the day, all I'm left with is a light shimmer on my cheeks. So very sad, I'll be returning this. Three lippies bc it's not the product's fault that my skin just eats up color...
This blush is a beautiful color! Highly pigmented! I barely touch the pan with my Real Techniques blush brush and blend onto my cheeks. I would buy again, if I ever used this up. A little goes a long way! FYI, NC30/NW25
I adore Laura Geller marblized baked products including this Pink Grapefruit. A wearable earthy pink, Pink Grapefruit could look good on just about anyone. A breeze to use with or without foundation underneath. I use a natural bristle brush that's not too dense, for a lighter contact with the skin, and that's all it takes. Pricey but worth it, same price as MAC MSFs.
My new favorite blush and "brightener". Saw it on QVC when they were putting it on the models and decided to try it out. It's a universally flattering color and shimmers without going overboard. Can be used to sweep over the eyelids as well. Stays put as long as any other blush I've tried and I really love it! Bit expensive, though... that's the only drawback. I got the brush that came with it and I love it, as well.
Why did I ever bother losing sleep in order to score a MAC Stereo Rose MSF when they were recently re-released? I got the dreaded backorder notice and eventually cancelled it myself because I didn't expect to see it ever fulfilled. I've seen enough swatches to feel pretty confident that this is a great color match--and the quality is superior to that of the MAC MSFs. I barely had to tap the brush onto the product to get plenty of color. It blends out like a dream on my cheeks (even though I initially put on too much!). There's incredible shimmer and I get that feverish/exhilarated flushed look when I apply it with the retractable brush that you can order with it (the product is sold alone or with a brush for just a few dollars more on QVC). The price is roughly the same as the MSF. I was worried this would take on an orange cast on my skin based on some of the other reviews, but it didn't. It's just a gorgeous, shimmering coral on my NC20 skin.
I have been using Laura Geller's mineral blushes for a few years now. Iusually use them for the days when I don't use much makeup and need an instant pop of color and health.
These are wonderful products and do not irritate the skin. Their texture is buttery sheer and with one easy swipe you have a healthy look.
Pink Grapefruit is a peachy/bronzey with pink color which flatters most skin types. The price is relatively high, but consider that these are minerals and baked somewhere in Italy...lol. They should last you for more than a year though.
The LG containers are a big MEH (mirror is tiny, plastic is cheap looking ) but I would take the product in a wood box if I had to.
I really love this blush. Yes, it is pricey - but one pot can last me over a year.
I am fair but with yellow undertones, and I have a hard time with blush colors (either it is took pink and I look like a clown or it is too dark).
Either way, this blush goes on easily and last all day (it even lasts through me powdering my nose). Also, it does not change color over my foundation or change color through the day. The blush has a little shimmer in it which is nice and subtle.
Also, I have acne-prone skin and most blush makes me break out. This one DOES NOT, however, and I am pleased. I highly recommend :)
I received this in a swap--so happy with it:) This is a peach/rose blush but neither colors overpower the other, making it quite neutral. This is great for versatility, in my opinion. It applies smooth and seems to have good lasting power. The effect of it, also, is neither too shiny/shimmery or matte. Glad I have it and will purchase when I have to.
I'm a CCC -- about an NC43, and this blush by itself is a little light for my skintone, however, it's great as a highlighter on my cheekbones or over my NARS Torrid blush for extra drama when I go out at night. Love the sparkles.
This is a lovely bronzey pink peach with a fine white shimmer and bright pink veining. The fact that this blush is baked adds to its allure. The powder is so finely milled, making it a breeze to blend on the skin. The white shimmer is subtle and adds a dewy glow.
My blush has a semi circle shaped mirror built into the compact. Not necessary, but definitely nice to have. Truly high quality products come with their own mirror built into the packaging. The lid also has a little window, making this blush easy to spot in a drawer full of makeup.
I would absolutely buy more of these Laura Geller blushes if they weren't so expensive. Overall, the pigmentation and finish of this blush are amazing and I love it to pieces.
