I rec'd one in a swap and loved it so much that I swapped for 3 more as backups. I have ivory toned skin so it looks much too bright on me if I use it alone so I just use a tiny bit of it and often use a more muted powder blush over it but then it's just perfect and it gives the powder blush a really nice glow! I think I might could use it alone if I use just a tiny, tiny, tiny bit of one drop but I prefer it underneath my favorite powder blush of any color.
I really wanted to like this blush. I thought it was really neat (in the store) that the blush would change color to suit my skin color. I was wrong! You have to use a TON of it to get it to show up in the least. I also thought it was too slippery. Waste of money! I switched back to powder blush. Will not repurchase.
I like how the silicone gel turns from clear to pink but this baby is quite tricky to blend.If you put more, you end up with uneven layer on your cheeks,if you put less,it won't look noticeable.It has uneven consistency so its hard to blend even on your fingers,it even leaves behind crumbly eraser-like shavings which is annoying. The pinkish glow looks nice on cheeks when used alone for a natural look. But it doesn't adhere well when you use powder or foundation over it. This product is expensive for what its worth.
crap crap crap!!!! very sheer and feels icky to the skin.... ah i regret buying this. ended up throwing it away.. I should have kept the box and returned it!!!
I carry this in my make up bag, but do not use it often. I like my baked blush much better. I like this in summer, though because it lasts longer in the heat and humidity for me.
Unlike most gel blushes, this is sort of a primer with tint. It looks and feels just like a primer going on, which makes it easier to blend and it is less likely to settle in pores or lines. Like others have noted, the color is hot raspberry pink. It will either work or not. Lasts quite long. All day in fact. Kind of fun on many levels.
First let me say, when I sampled this in the store, I liked it just fine. However, this is one of those products that I just got bored with. The color is always the same so no control of intensity, etc. And 'the same' in my case is pink pink pink. I also find that it doesn't show up at all if I use it over primer, it just kinda pills and slides away. Under primer it fairs better but I still can't make myself reach for this over my Tarte Stains or even my Benetint.
This is exactly like Benetint, but just in a silicone gel formula. Benetint is a 1-color cheek stain & O-glow is a 1-color check stain. If you like the scarlet Benetint, you'll love the fuschia O-glow.
As with Benefit's cheek stain, less of O-glow is more. Dot it on - it absolutely feels like a silicone primer! And that's because it basically is a silicone primer. With a pink tint.
It dries very very quickly, so fast blending is key. It's great on top of Teint Miracle because it doesn't ruin that foundie's silicone-based mirror shine.
If you're a mineral kinda person, put this on *under* your mineral foundie and brush your base over it until you have only a subtle wash of color visible. The silicone base of the O-glow should actually help your minerals stay on.
the most stupid design for a blush, color doesn't come out natural, difficult to apply, don't blend easily
I love the O-Plump, so clearly I love the O-Glow. At first I hated the silicone texture, but I soldiered through, not giving up on a product that costs $26.00. Now I have come to love the texture, and the pink color matches my natural cheek color well. As far as the staining on fingers, ladies that is what soap is for. Of course, I have terribly dry skin, and rarely use a powder blush, so a little bit of staining on the fingers is par for the course for me.
