I was so pleasantly surprised by this blush. I purchased this for something cheap to keep in the makeup bag I keep at my other half's place, but that went out the window and I used it everyday for about a month. It's such a beautiful peachy pink colour, which is so pigmented and soft. An absolute bargain for the price tag! It's fairly long lasting too. I love this blush, the only thing I'm not a fan of is the packaging but for the price and the quality of product I'm not taking a lippy off for that. LOVE.
I usually don't like blush because I feel like I can never find the right color. But this blush is perfect!! It's crazy glitter it's very soft and pretty pigmented. The color is great and it's the perfect everyday color. The packaging is okay but for the price I don't really care. Overall love the blush!!!!
I have the oldest square package. This is my first blush and it is a little square that don't take a lot of space. but it has 5g in it and take forever to finish. I haven't done mine yet and it is the most natural and pretty pink/peach flush you can get. will buy it a gain but not anytime soon though because I was trying to finish it and use it straight a year. kind of sick of it a little bit
My big complaint about most blushes is that with 2 swipes- wham, overload .IMO nothing is more aging than an overdose of blush.
I have blushes from Hard Candy, ELF, NYX,Milani but none is like Santa Rosa. Rimmel Santa Rosa is a glitter free, natural pink and you can buff it in to a natural finish.Skip the apples of cheeks, place it from top of ear to mid cheek . In daylight, you will not look like a drag queen, just fresh and healthy.
EDIT: 1st blush I have ever hit pan on. Gotta find a new one now.
lovely and healthy peachy pink colour, which i find ideal. it appears to have some shimmer in the box, but when applied, leaves a really nice sheen without any obvious glitter or shimmer. it's a good price for a blush and i shan't complain about the packaging - it is very simple and its small size adds little bulk to my makeup bag.
Beautiful color, looks very natural, but hate hate hate the packaging ! I got the version with no brush and that's super tiny
i LOVE this blush. it's HG of the HG. i have the old version with the crappy plastic lid that comes completely off and has no brush... but the color is absolute perfection on my skin. i am NC20-ish with naturally flushed cheeks (that peek through even when i use foundation powder). the blush itself is a gorgeous peachy pink with slight shimmer (reminiscent of NARS deep throat) that doesn't make my natural flush redder. i can use it lightly for a polished flush or heavily for a defined pop of color. even if i pile it on it doesn't look bad. foolproof. i saw the reformulated version with the flip lid and brush and it looks different although i cannot confirm this yet (looked more like a nude-ish peach). i wish i had bought back-ups of this in the original formulation / packaging. it's my absolute favorite (above MAC, NARS, etc)!
Worth the hype. This is probably my most reached for blush. It works for daytime and nightime. This is the color of my natural blush. It's so suddle and pretty, it's matte with a couple sparkles that's very flattering. The only downside is that the packaging is a little flimsy, and the staying power isn't great but for the price that's okay. It doesn't look like much in the pan, but please take a chance on this blush you won't be disappointed !
I absolutely love this blush it gives out the prettiest color and is perfect for any time of day and style of makeup
Initially I wasn't too sure if I liked this blush yet have been able to make a more accurate judgement once I had the right foundation underneath.
It throws off a more peachy brownish colour on me which I love.
It applies lightly yet builds up slowly which I also like & leaves a healthy natural look.
I have used it as an eyeshadow when I'm in a rush & just want to apply something neutral on either my lids or edge of my brow bone.
The packaging is very average yet isn't flimsy enough to break. I love the brush as it seems to give me more control on wear I place it.
I recommend this blush & for $4, I will definitely repurchase.
Update: I've been using this as a eyeshadow base & love the colour. I apply it to my lid & crease & apply a cream or beige on my brow bone & it looks lovely for a natural/day look. Having a better foundation underneath makes this blush so much better on me. With these two points in mind & for the price I've added one lippie.
