Very pretty color on my light-to-med skin.
Gives me a great glow, looks like a natural flush, and blends very easily. My skin is normal to oily, fairly sensitive, and I don't generally use a primer.
I layer powder blush on top to try to make it last, but no cream blush I've ever tried has lasted more than a few hours. No biggie; I just reapply if I feel like I need it.
Got it for $2.60 at CVS - not sure if it's going to be d/c or not.
Edit: Took off a lippie because it absolutely does not last for a reasonable amount of time. Maybe an hour or two, and I don't have oily skin.
This blush is very pigmented and shows up really well. I am NC 50 and I have no problems with this showing up. You can easily apply it with a 187 or your fingers. This stuff is really pretty overall I wold buy it again. This stuff started wearing off however around three hours but you can easily touch up.
I'm extremely inexperienced with blush: this is the first I've owned since being a teenager! I decided to try because my skin is such a dull color. In just a couple weeks, I've become hooked on the bright, healthy look. But, of course, it fades very quickly, so quickly that I put on a double coat just to get it to still show 4 hours later. Because I didn't want to lug the stuff with me all day, I started experimenting touching up with lipsticks & tinted lip balms used as blush; they work at least as well & are more convenient because I always have one on hand.
i was looking for a creme blush that was bright enough to give me "dolly" cheeks. this would have fit it perfectly except for that fact that it did not show on my cheeks at ALL. its so sheer! the texture is great, not sticky at all and was very blendable. i am so bummed, this is so much less costly than the HE creme blushes. i would recommend this for fair skin ladies only. i am medium/tan with yellow undertones and this didnt show at all. ill have to go to MAC now for something "stronger"...great little sturdy compact with a pop out mirror. bought at walgreens for less than $10.00
i bought this whilst on holidays in the states, where i picked it up for about 10bucks at walmart, thats pretty expencive but....
my first cream blush (ds or he) and im never going back to powder.
staying powder is about 4hours, but powder on me only lasts about 3hours, so im happy with that.
the packaging is fantastic, the pop out mirror tops it off, its so sterdy like iv probebly dropped it 5 or 6 times, not one dint or scratch! :)
i cant see how deep the pan is, but whatever, ill keep buying till they stop making it!
Wow, what a great blush! I've always been weary about using cream blushes.. Probably because I tried that Maybelline Dream Matte Blush and it was terrible. After watching shows like What Not to Wear, I decided it was time to try another brand.. they always seem to use cream blushes and create such a natural flush of color! The price ($8-10) is a little steep for a d/s blush, but it won't break you if it turns out you don't like it. This bold berry color really appears nice and natural on my skin (NC35).. I find it's easiest to apply with a stippling brush or dense blush brush. Once you lightly buff out the edges it produces an amazing result! I love this because you can wear it toned down or built up, it looks gorgeous either way. The only reason I took off a lippie is because the staying power is just not there. My face is oily and eats blush, but it doesn't stay as long as my NYX powder blushes. A few improvements with the formula and this will be perfection!
I got this after seeing some YouTube videos about using cream blush to give powder blush some staying power. I like it very much! I use a EcoTools blush brush to apply, and it always looks good - if I overdo it, it blends right out with a stiffer buffing brush. I don't know that I've noticed a great amount of staying power, but I never have good luck with blush hanging around all day - it's usually gone by about 2 pm. Anyway, this is a great, quick, all purpose blush, and not too expensive or hard to find. I might try the other color as well.
i've been using this blush for about 2 months now, & it's gradually starting to replace my beloved MAC Pink Swoon.
admittedly, i initially read reviews for the shade ' First Blush ' and planned on getting that, but the color in the pan just scared me.
it looked wayy too harsh, so i opted for Berry Flirtatious instead.
not regretted =)
lasts all day for me.
gives me a natural flush, like i just spent an hour snow-ball fighting.
how i apply, --
i use a sponge. not damp/wet, just dry.
i kinda dab the sponge in the product a couple of times, then i smear it on my cheek. then i blend it in and blah blah.. repeat on the other cheek.
lasts all day for me, but let me add that my cheeks are NOT oily. normal, if not dry..
oh and let me add this too, ;
i've dropped this SO many times. LOL.
has not budged/broken. i've also made a LITTLE dip, & i've been using it daily. the mirror is just waste, tbh.
i'd definetly repurchase if i ever run out. :D
Simple, cheap and gets the job done. Nice, natural looking colours. Only complaint is that it doesnt last the day, however the little mirror makes it convenient for on the go touchups.
Just to add to similar comments, this is a great blush, goes on smoothly and gives a natural flushed look. I have aging skin, very dry and this works well, since I've given up on powder blushes.( except for a Sephora bronzer in the summer, which I used very lightly.) The Revlon blush is my new every day favorite for a little color on my very pale skin. It does look brighter in the compact, but is very versatile-you can layer more on, or apply lightly.
