I just bought this and love the colour, not over the top, but you get nice colour from it. I've read some of the below comments about the packaging and they must have changed this as mine has a hinge lid, so I like it and will buy again when I run out.
This is a decent blush. It adds a lovely, hushed rose color when used in moderation, but can be built upon for a dolly look if you so pleased.
The packaging is wonderful - a simple square pan with a plastic top - it's slim, portable, and the right size for use with a blush brush.
But I do have some complaints to make here.... The microshimmer in this product is not overwhelming when you first apply it, and in fact has a slight highlighting-quality. However, the color disappears fairly quickly while the shimmer remains, which means that when you touch-up (And you will need to touch-up often!) the glitter from the previous applications tends to build-up until by the third reapp, your cheeks start to look a bit too sparkly.
If you're into shimmer. then go for it, as for me.. I think the end result is too tacky for anyone over the age of fourteen.
I wanted to like this blush so much. I am a huge fan of Rimmell products for the price, but this did not deliver. I have to say that the color applied nice and even and looked great when I put it on. An hour later I happened to glance in the mirror and the color wasn't the nice peachy-pink shade that it had been. It was brown and muddy, and that's just what was left of it. It had faded and turned after only an hour. Blaah. So disapointing. I love the Rimmell cream blushes (coral kiss is my favorite) and I had no problem with fading or turning, but I haven't been able to find in any stores in a long time. Definately would not repurchase.
Love this blush. Im a NC30-35ish, half-Asian with olive skin, green eyes and dark brown hair. I like the colour of this blush - a pale-medium pink and good pigment. I have a problem with some pink blushes just not showing up on my skin. A little goes a long way. Blush is easy to pick up with a brush. No powder residue (Cargo - Im talking to you!). Looks like Milani Luminous a bit, but without the glitter. Some review say this is matte, but I find it has a slight shimmer/sheen to it. I usually stay away from anything shimmery or with sparkle because my skin is so oily, but this is fine. Packaging is annoying (square, with a pop off plastic lid), a bit hard to get open. Im always afraid I'll wreck the blush trying to get it open. Would repurchase - but I doubt I'll ever hit pan. This seems to be everlasting.
I bought this blush on an impulse. It's a great bargain. Honestly, I didn't expect much. All I knew was that I wanted a soft pink blush, so hey... why not? And I was pleasantly surprised!
The packaging is quite simple, with no frills. Just a small square of blush, no mirror, no lame drugstore "blush" brush.
The pigmentation is actually pretty good for a drugstore buy. It goes on pink, with no frostiness or chalkiness. I love how it is a little bit muted so it looks more natural, rather than an ugly bubblegum pink.
It does have shimmer so I wouldn't recommend this for people with oily skin, pimples on their cheeks, or dry skin (shimmer only highlights these problems).
It is a simple, pretty blush. It's not miraculous or innovative, but it gets the job done with little negative results. When applied correctly using a large fluffy blush, I achieve angelic, delicately flushed pink cheeks.
I like this, it makes me get that wind-blown face. The packaging sucks though.
i adore this blush. it's very natural and gives a nice glow. i don't have a problem with the packaging, in fact i like how flat it is and how the cover detaches easily. i don't feel the need to purchase more expensive blushes after this at all.
This is a pretty pinky peach shade that looks like a natural flush on my cheeks. It goes on nice and even and stays put all day. I'm shocked that this has held up so well. The SA who was ringing me up at the store I bought it from dropped it on the floor. I was mad because it was thelast one in the store and I thought it had shattered on the floor. Wrong!! It didn't break! Yay!
this is a lovely rosy blush that works really nicely on my nc15 skin- a little goes a long way, though, on me. the packaging is not great (top pops off really easily, and does not travel well for this reason), but given how cheap it is i'm willing to look past that. overall, a great buy- especially if you're not taking it anywhere.
This is definately a best buy! The color goes on nicely, doesn't fade or streak.
