I would def recommend Dollymix or Pink Swoon for anyone looking for a bright pop of color to their cheeks. I am very fair Asian and find this works create for me. I think it is all in the application to get that perfect glowy look without looking like a doll. Use an angled blush brush, tap off the excess, and tap it on the apples of your cheeks. Then buff in the color with your brush.
It is a Sheertone Shimmer so the color is easy to work with and build. It looks much darker and louder in the pan than it does on the cheeks as long as you know how to apply it.
Other reviewers compared it to NARS Angelika, but it is nothing like Angelika because it is a Sheertone Shimmer. Angelika is almost too pigmented and very hard to work with. The Sheertone Shimmer formulation makes Dollymix much easier to work with and build the color.
I generally only wear light pinks like Well Dressed so this was a great cheek color for me to branch into.
For reference I am NC40/42 south asian skin
most of my blushes have been in hues of coral or brown. Dollymix is my first pink blush. I like how it looks on my skin - as if i just had a beer. Product is highly pigmented, so use a light hand when putting it on. If you've south asian with olive skin this would be a nice pink to use if you're not used to using pink. don't let the intensity of the colour in the pan scare you.
UPDATE: I'm taking away one lippie for the crap packaging. the clear top has come off!
Thought I would love Dollymix since so many with my NC40 skintone do, but I hated it! It was just too reddish and bright for me. If you have any bit of pink in ur skin, this blush gives the look of sunburned pinky red cheeks. I ended up selling it. It's a def a shade to test before buying.
I bought this along w. a matching lipstick. It was ok, not my favorite. I might be a little too dark skinned for this but not dark enough, if that makes any sense. It has really good staying power and its very build able which is always a plus w. blush. i am nc40-nc42.
Dollymix is so pretty! It is a gorgeous bright pink without being neon. Right now it is my favorite blush. For reference, I am NC 20, cool toned with yellow undertones. Used with a light hand, it makes me look flushed and dolly - in a good way.
This blush has shimmer. I want to say: glitter. But it is not really chunky glitter, it is really pretty, because it is so finely milled.
I really don't like this blush. its up for swap on my swaplist. i think its the silver shimmers/sheen that mak it unflattering in my skintone. (olive)
This is my new favorite blush. Like everyone else says a little does go a long way! it gives me the perfect flushed look and it looks amazing on my skin. Im a NC42 i def recommend this to all my NC42 girls!
This is my HG pink blush. I'm a fair NW15 but very warm so most pinks like my welldressed and dame just turn orangey on me and I have to pack it on, well this is just fab on me, it actually looks pink, I love it!
This is the perfect pink blush. Finally a pink blush that actually looks pink on me. I have fair skin, but my cheeks are always slightly red and even with foundation, it's hard to get blushes to show up in their true color, especially pinks. This looks super bright in the pan, but it shows up quite sheer after one layer since it is a sheertone. It is such a pretty pink with just a slight shimmer. I have tried many pinks and this is by far my favorite. I use about two layers and it's perfect. I have been tanned since I got it, but i think it would still work year round with my very fair skin.
I'm an NC40(golden tan skin), this blush is highly reccomneded for my skintone but I honestly hated it! It was just too bright and too pink for me, even when I tried blending it with peachy blush I just never loved it. It made me look reddish,sunburned, and yucky! I ended up selling it. The color looks gorgeous in the pan, it's def a shade to test out before purchasing though!
