Such a beautiful color! Gives me a healthy look that lasts all day I swirl my duo fiber brush and it applies it flawlessly I need to pick up another I already hit pan, I picked mine up at target like 6 or 7 months ago and just barely hit pan so the pigmentation is good considering I don't need to go back in tons of times to get the color to show up definite repurchase
This is a perfect pink blush for me. I've tried many and they are either to light, frosty, or change color. This does not do any of those things. It brightens my face and I love it. This last all day. If you have medium skin tone this is a blush to try.
Throw out your Blushbaby & Exposed and come over to a brighter faced neutral!
-Very nice neutral that won't run muddy on you
-Very soft (almost too soft/sheer)
-I can wear almost any lipstick shade or eye combo with this
-Very sheer/soft. It works so much better when I have a clean slate of foundation on. Without the foundation it blends into my natural NW20 pinkness. But eventually will show up without foundation
-It doesn't bring my face to life like the other blushes I love. It is basically a safe "anchor" blush for eyes or lips. This could also be a pro.
I almost gave this a 3 thinking, "eh" it's ok, but doesn't show up that much on my NW20 skin, nice soft pink color. But then I started playing with different lipsticks and I could wear almost ANY color with this blush! On its own with the "no makeup look" it barely shows, . I prefer MAC Dame when my lips and eyes are muted so my face has a bit more light to it. But, if you want to rock a lip color or heavier eye makeup, this is the blush you want! And to think all those years I wasted on "neutral" blush colors were basically not doing much for me. I will never forget a conversation I had with this high up makeup artist with Lancome. He complimented me for wearing a brighter neutral blush (I think I had pinky peach shade on) and complained how so many woman come in asking for "this" neutral blush (and showed me Lancome's equivalent to MAC Blushbaby or Tarte Exposed). Then he said, "they don't realize how it is doing nothing for them but making their skin look dull." And since then, I have been embracing colors with more pink or peach to them and dropping the ruddy shades. I look so much younger and fresh faced.
Finally, many are have said this is a dupe for MAC's Pink Swoon. I beg to differ. I could not wear Pink Swoon (at all, it looked horrible on me), it made me look sick, it was just too cool. Flamingo just looks soft, but leaves me with some color. continued >>
About me: NW10-15 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
This is truely a beautiful pink blush, possibly a dupe for Tarte Dollface. I like applying it over my Urban Decay cream blush in Quickie (same undertones) so that it stays all day. Don't be afraid by the bright color, it blends out to look very natural even on someone as fair as me : )
Cannot say enough how amazing this blush is!!! it is matte pink, with a tiny bit of blue undertone,so it works on my paler skintone. amazing color payoff, super blendable, and u can build the color if you want to! this will be a repurchase over and over, and I think i will also try new colors!!
**oh and the pkging is amazing!! its a round white container with a window to see teh color, and it is a magnetic close , not a clasp!!!! super cool, and totally unique
Since I loved Sunset so much I decided to try Flamingo which is a cool-toned, matte pink. This is perfect pink for my medium-toned skin. The problems I have with DS blushes are that they are either not as pigmented or does not blend smoothly but this is not the case. I did own the older square packaged ones but I think these are so much better, sleek and thin. And they might have changed the formula since this doesn't break me out as the old packaged one did.
The square compact seems to hold more product which puzzles me. This blush is such a beautiful bubble gum color. Not many DS make light pink blushes but this is an exception. Its scary looking in the pan but the effect is about a true blush in the cold morning.
Bought this a week or so ago, within a day or so of purchasing an illamasqua pink blush that cost 3x the price. While I adore the illamasqua, I'll be damned if I don't prefer the SK. It's the only matte, bright pink blush I've found in a drugstore that I really, really like--and bright pink blush is basically the only color I bother I wear. NW20 skintone, but it's not an overtly cool pink (will be great for spring and summer especially, I think.) definite repurchase!
I like this blush! It blends well, and it is decently pigmented. I do have to use a pretty good amount to get this color to show up well on my skin, but I think that is just the coloring. I have another of these blushes, and the pigmentation is great, so I think it is just an issue with my personal skintone. These blushes are silky and blend easily, and you really do not need a lot. I think they are definitely worth looking into!
Great pinky glow, not shimmery. I have this is both powder and stick. Both work well and give me a nice healthy look, kind of like if I had just been running. Lasts a loooong time. Looks super bright in package but natural on face.
