Ok this sucks for a blush, but it is the BEST all over powder I have used in my life!
I am quite pale+dry skin which equals dull and scary-ghostly; on the other hand I can easily break the border and look too made-up I if put even the lightest of blush. This is the golden medium - it's not a blush, it's not chalky or matte like normal powder, it's not sparkly and fakey like highlighter. It is a super healthy, super natural all over miracle and one of the best products I've come accross at all. I hate looking overdone with makeup and in daylight no powder, blush, FDT, whatever can beat the combo tinted moiusturizer+this. The reviews complain that it's invisible and it indeed is, but it makes *you* look great looked upon even from very close. Besides, in contrast to matte powder, it's a great base for putting blush when you go from day to night. Btw the brush is for me the perfect blush brush! Much more useful and precise than round brushes.
I got it for $23.50/11 g online - not cheap for me, but come to think how many useless products I've bought and how I'll use this to the last molecule and stock some more when I find it again.
This tops my HG list!
Absolutely pointless. I already knew this wouldn't show up as a blush, I mainly wanted it as an all-over face powder. But it makes my skin look more dry and has a little sparkle to it that looks strange. It doesn't compare to other face powders I have, and I can't use it as a blush either, so there really is no point to this product. And I'm between NW15-20.
This will not show up on your if you're any darker than NC20. I bought it thinking that it would give a nice, fresh, peachy glow to my cheeks. The peach is barely pigmented, and the only colour that shows up is shimmer. I use this as a highlighter on my cheekbones sometimes, so this isn't completely useless. Defintely not a blush...
Have bought this again. I don't use this as a blush powder. I think the reason a lot of people don't like this is bc there really is no color pay-off as a blush. I use it as an all-over-face powder, and it gives my skin a really nice and warm glow. Maybe some of you can try to use it that way instead of using it as a blush. You might be pleasantly surprised!
As a powder I would give it a 4, as I have. However, as a blush I would give it a 1, especially for someone like me who is NC40. I think because of its color, it would be a very nice powder for most people, so they should see it as that and stop whingeing that they can't see "the blush". It is NOT a blush, people! It's quite a good product as a nice setting powder, giving you a very nice glow. I love the smell too, and the packaging is very compact and cute. The brush though, seems to be too stiff so I've substituted a very handy GWP Bare Escentuals mini buff that fits just nicely into the Georgia box. In all, a good product, and I would purchase it again when it's finished.
When I tried this at the BeneFit counter the saleslady didn't say anything. Thankfully the other saleslady piped up and told her, "You can't even see it on her."
I am so glad she was honest before I made an expensive mistake.
Uh...yikes. That's about all I can say.
Whether I use it as a powder or blush, it's just...meh. I just reek of fake peaches for a while, and that's about it. I can't stand the box or the brush it comes with, since both are impossible for me to work with. I've kept it because I don't like throwing away perfectly good, expensive makeup, and I try to use it, but I always find myself going back to my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural or Too Faced's Candlelight. Totally not impressed, and 99% sure I will not repurchase.
I think the reason why so many people have problems with this powder is IT IS NOT A BLUSH. It is made for very pale skin as a all over powder. I fall into the extremely pale category (MAC doesn't even make a foundation light enough.) This powder when lightly dusted all over my face gives me a very pleasant peachy glow and adds a hint of color. I would recommend this as a all over highlighter for anyone super pale. The scent and cute packaging is a awesome bonus!
This is an all over face powder meant to give radiance to your face. I like this for the lighter makeup days because it does brighten my face a lot but, I wouldn't bother putting it on if I was going out at night because it really isn't meant for that. I liked it I just didn't fall in love with it, I think I prefer blush to this. This is a maybe for re-purchasing.
Ah! I am glad to hear the commenters saying this is a powder rather than a blush--I was confused about why I couldn't get it to show up! I am a Dandelion girl as well too (my mom recently converted me!). I am excited to try this for its "Photoshop" effects. I am usually reluctant to try colored powders as they tend to oxidize or be a weird color on me but since I have liked Dandelion so well I am excited to incorporate this into my routine.
However, I did think it was going to be a peachy blush, which I was excited to try. Oh well I am glad I read the other reviews!
10/23/10 Update: I do like this powder, and I have found it does give me a great airbrushed glow, but I have to be careful about wearing it on days when I wear certain perfumes or lotions--its scent (peach) can clash horribly with some items (notably an alpha-hydroxy lotion I had applied) and made me want to wash my face the WHOLE DAY to get away from the old-lady peach/gardenia smell it had going on. So now I use this only on days where I am wearing little makeup and no perfumes, and the scent doesn't bother me that way.
