I love this blush, I recently bought a number of blushes from various cosmetics lines because I owned almost none and wanted to start using it on a regular basis. I keep coming back to this one over and over, the colour is so natural on me (I am very pale), you can see the blush but it never looks overdone. It's easy to blend and I can't blend at all (yes I have been that girl with the visible streaks of blush on her face). It's not super pigmented but pigmented enough that the colour shows up easily without going overboard. Would repurchase.
I wanted to try this blush because I was looking for a nice peachy-pink blush that wasn't as shimmery as Nars Orgasm (which I do adore). I've heard good things about these blushes, but will be honest and say that I was skeptical. Rimmel is really hit and miss for me, and I am pretty picky when it comes to blushes. Regardless of all of that, I have come to love this blush, and it has been my go-to everyday blush for the past month or so.
The color is a light peachy-pink with a very slight shimmer. It reads almost matte on the skin, but there is a very subtle glow about it. For me it's just right. I usually prefer matte blushes for everyday/causal, but this for me is just the right amount.
As far as pigmentation goes, I had thought it wouldn't be very pigmented, and admittedly, it's not the best, but still very good. I don't need to pack it on to get it to show up. But it's also not so pigmented that it's hard to work with or a risk to looking garish. For me it's just right - just a hint of sheer color that is easy to blend and very convincing. If I where going for a dramatic look, this wouldn't be my first pick, but for daily use it fits the bill perfectly. It goes great with my fairly light yellow/olive skin. It works with pretty much anything I wear.
The packing leaves a bit to be desired. I like that is is not bulky, but it feel pretty cheap. I am surprised it hasn't broken yet. The brush is useless as usual, and I wished they would have just not included it and made it even smaller - I loved how compact their old blushes where when they were just those small cubes. I do like that it really snaps closed, not like the Rimmel bronzers, and the crown imprint is cute while it lasts.
I would buy this again - it's one of the few blushes that I use over and over for an extended period of time. So, yes.
Update- I'm still using this a lot and really liking it, but I just wanted to comment on the staying power. I find that it fades through the day, so I would suggest either layering it over a cream blush and/or bringing it with you. I usually have to touch up after about 4 hours or so. When it fades it doesn't get blotchy or anything so it's not too bad.
Okay, to start off, I do love the color. But after a while of using it, it completely broke apart! :( I wasn't very happy. The packaging could be better. After it broke, I gave it to my sister. If you do buy this, be very careful with it or it will break.
great color, good for everyday, works well on my NC40-42 skin, decent price and quality. my new everyday blush color.
This blush is super pretty!! its a nice pink color and has great lasting power! I decided to buy this product because it was one of a youtube gurus favorites im glad i bought this product!!
GREAT pink blush and it is usually on sale! I got it for $3.99 at Shoppers. It is very pigmented yet sheer and gives me a healthy and natural glow. Highly recommended.
Love this blush! Im usually not a fan of pink blushes but I fell in love with this one. I don't like shimmery blushes but I still love this blush because the shimmer isn't too bad. This is definitely my favorite pink blush and I will definitely buy it again :)
Beautiful sheer blush. Shows up well on my skin Nc 25 with only 2 swipes per cheek. I believe it cost me around 3.50 at walmart, and its lasted me for months. I like to use this blush during the day time, and my nars outlaw (discontinued) at night because it is so pigmented. This blush is totally my fav :D
This is such a great buy for a drugstore blush! It is pigmented and with 2 swipes, you see the color. It gives my NC30 skintone a nice flush of healthy pink! Its great for those going to school & in a rush. Just putting this blush on makes you look more awake & refreshed! I like the new packaging and you get more product. Definately and underrated blush! Check this one out next time you run into Rimmel :)) continued >>
My favorite blush, Jane Blushing Blossom, is getting harder to find. Some Walmarts seem to have taken Jane out of the stores. In search for something new, I picked up Rimmel blush in Pink Sorbet. I was less than impressed with my first day. I thought it was too light in pigmentation and I normally don't like shimmer in my blush. But I tried it again and I noticed something. The shimmery pink blush with a hint of peach made me look awake and healthy! Sometimes, Jane blushes are a little too pigmented and make me look "blushed". This one is perfect....I think I found my new favorite!!
