careful as this can make your face look dull and muddy looking. It is quite a heavy product on the skin so a little goes a long way. If your skin is already on the dull side then this will not help as it'll just make it look dark and gloomy rather than deep and vibrant. Nethertheless, on the right skin this is potentially a nice exotic matte blusher.
I like thsi color. It can be used for many things. I like the contouring effects. I am a LOLA so this is perfect for my skin color. It can look muddy if applied incorrectly, it took a couple of tries. The key IS a good brush as is the case in applications of any kind. I like it because it makes me look tanned without the bad effects of the sun. I think with practice this may be a holy grail...
This is a good shade for countoring in dark or very tanned skin. I have to agree with some of the other comments...if you apply this shade the wrong way, it can look very muddy and just WRONG! You need the right brush and you need to start very light and then build up.
I won't wear this as a blush, too dark on my olive skin. So I'm using it as an eyeshadow. Nice, neutral brown shade. It works well enough.
I love this blush. It is excellent when I want to be neutral.
I agree w/ some other ladies below :)... it IS a flat brown shade that can look muddy on lighter skin tones... HOWEVER, if you're tanned (medium/dark to darker complexion), this is wonderful WHEN APPIELD CORRECTLY :)! First off, you need to use a very light hand. Secondly, make sure you're using a quality brush. When done right, this gives you the impression of just coming home from a cruise ;)... I like to put my Stila CC (gladiola) on top of this, or my Mary Kay just peachy blush on top, just for an added kick of color (since BLUNT tends to be a flat color)... All in all, i will repurchase if i ever have to :) i use VERY LITTLE product when applying, so i doubt i'll have to rebuy for a long time :)! hope that helps!
The MA at MAC online recommended this color for me as a contour shade, however it is way too dark and pinkish for my cool skintone. I am a MAC NC40 and Laura Mercier #3. I don't think it would work as a contour unless you have extremely tan skin that's warm.
Ok for this review all I can say is Mud Pies! That's right mud pies! When I TRIED this it made me look like I was out in the sandbox playing with the kids making mud pies and then the mud dried...well that's how I would describe this blush. A muddy ugly brown. I wanted to like it as I do all make-up...but this wouldn't let me. The price ain't to bad. The packaging...well when I "accidentally" dropped it made a great empty for the program. Would only rebuy if the kids had a week off from school and we were going to make mudpies!
This is a great contour -- for those of us who have Janet Jackson cheeks! =) I pair it with a blush for added shimmer and to blend. It's very natural looking if you know how to apply it correctly.
I don't really use this as a blush, as I am way too light for this golden brown. This would be better on a GGG, IMO. However, for the rest of us, this is one hell of a contour shade! Try it... I dare you!
