Bought pinched-a peachy nude. Matte, no shimmer, perfect everyday natural look, except it doesn't last & isn't opaque enough! I swiped about 4x per cheek (NC25) to barely get any of that color & an hr later, it smeared off. Disappeared, poofed, vanished; just like this will from my collection. continued >>
I have fairly pale skin (redhead) and this barely makes any difference to my cheek colour unless I spend half an hour layering it on, which then makes it look less natural than normal powder blush. There simply isn't enough pigment in this product. Especially for the price.
I've had plenty of cream blushes before, from everyone from Maybeline to Stilla, and this is the worst.
Got the Coral Reef when it's 40% off. Otherwise won't consider it at all.
I have a Bobbi Brown lips & cheeks Pot Rouge in pale pink, which is just my favorite. And I'm glad that I bought this one in coral.
The color is definitely softer applied than it looks in the pan. And it's lighter and smoother than the BB Pot Rouge. Almost matte on lips. Can build up on cheeks. I normally don't like coral-orange blushes, but this one looks natural and cute on my yellow and cool-toned skin. continued >>
Blush is my favorite make up product. I wear it every day without fail and feel it is the one make up item that makes the biggest difference in my overall appearance. I have cool, fair skin and am partial to rich and vibrant pinks, plums, burgandys, and reds.
I saw this cream blush in the color flushed and was excited to try it. After a few days of trying this out a few different ways, I have to give it a thumbs down for several reasons. First of all, the color is so light and sheer and it takes many layers to build up any noticeable color. Any powder blush layered on top seems to negate any color provided by this blush. Plus it tends to look a bit drab and washed out. And this has the shortest staying power of any of the cream blushes (or lipsticks that I use as cream blushes) that I own. I often wear other brands of creams blushes (or lipsticks as blush) that hold up through 8, 10, or 12 hour days. Sometimes, even after a nap, I'll still have my artifically rosy cheeks. But this blush would completely disappear after a few hours. I gave it more than one shot, too! Sorry to say, this is not recommended! Try ELF cream blushes or Ski Bunny by 3 custom colorists (or a Revlon lipstick for that matter!) if you are looking for vibrancy and long lasting color.
i liked this product, i'm not crazy over it. but it's a good blush and i love the finish
I have this in pinched and had it in the Coral reef. Firstly coral reef is more of a fluoro pinky red on me - got rid of it it wasn't attractive on me at all I prefer Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Candy Coral over that one.
Pinched is a beautiful neutral peachy pink however I would be very suprised if anyone can get this to show up on their skintone. On me (super super pale almost white) I can layer it and just barely get a hint of peach but I can imagine it would be invisible and a waste of time/money for anyone darker than me. Like a revlon blushes badly pigmented and are just terrible for the price. Sad they used to make the best blushes on the market.
I'm going on a 2 week vacation and I won't have the time to reach in my purse to reapply lip color. And I'll be in NYC 4 days so I need something to wear that is fashionable. This is it. I waited and just am pleased now I have it, It's not as dangerous as it looks in the package. I got Flushed 200. I actually give it five lippies!
I've been waiting to write a review on this product because I'm really not sure how I feel about it even now, 2 months after purchasing the shade Coral Reef. I walked past it a hundred times in the drugstore but thought it looked like a small pan for $12 so waited & waited for a coupon before finally buying(got a $2 revlon coupon in the mail :D) I was so excited to try it I busted it open in the car before I even made it home & my initial review was disappointment.. &For reference I'm a drugstore m/u guru that esp. loves Revlon so this review is NOT biased in any way
Usually shades that look like Coral Reef in the pan turn out looking quite flattering on my NC10-15 skin, but this one, not so much.. It's VERY sheer, more sheer than most cream blushes out there (think NYX Red Cheeks or Maybelline's Hot Tomale..) After playing with it several times I found that the coverage IS buildable, but you have to mess with it longer than I care to mess with a blush to get it that buildable, &it also has a screw-off lid & no mirror. But I've found that I prefer it best as a base for powder blushes that need some extra staying power.Since it's sheer, it works well for this. BUT then I also started noticing little breakouts along my cheekbone every time I use this :( I tried EVERY excuse possible for it to NOT be this blush, but unfortunately I am now certain that it is.. I do have clog/acne-prone skin but it is VERY rare for me to break out on my cheekbone area from a blush. I have used many blushes (most with more comedogenic ingredients than this one..) with no issues whatsoever, but for whatever reason my skin doesn't like this one.. The breakouts it gives me are not major though, they're easily concealed by foundation (&prob.not even noticeable to the rest of the world the way they are to me Lol) &they've been healing relatively quickly, so if this was some amazing color on me, I'd probably still continue to use the blush regardless, but it's not. It pulls WAYYY more orange than it does red or pink (which never seems to look right on my fair NC15ish skin with my dark hair & eyes), it takes several layers to get decent coverage, and has *terrible* lasting power on it's own. In my mind when paying $12-$13 USD for a drugstore blush, these shouldn't be issues.. Not to mention the small breakouts that this seems to cause me along my cheekbones.
Due to those things I will not be repurchasing this. However I think I would still probably recommend Coral Reef to someone without skin as oily & acne-prone as mine (I imagine my oily-ness is the reason it has such poor staying power?) -someone that is looking for a very sheer, orange based red toned cream blush. OR, who is looking for a light coverage cream blush to wear under powder blushes.
Definitely a miss from Revlon for me though and I do not plan to repurchase. continued >>
I got this in 100 Pinched, which is a pretty peachy coral. I love the texture of it which I'd say is similar to the feel you get with mousse foundations/blushes - it's very soft and almost powdery to the touch.
I really wanted to like this - the colour is so beautiful and when the Revlon lady applied it, it looked super natural and flattering - but I feel a bit iffy about it. The problem is I haven't been able to replicate the application I got by the SA. :( I think, as some other reviews have said, it needs to be built up, which you can do by tapping it on with the pads of your fingers.
My problem it that I find this technique too time consuming for an everyday blush - blush for me is kind of an after thought. That said, if you don't have a problem with taking the time to build it up, then I'd recommend it. It looks really natural when applied and blends smoothly into the rest of your foundation.
Lasting power is pretty good. The colour is very similar to the Essence Silky Touch Blush in 30 Secret It Girl.
I have this in Flush and it is a wonderful product. The packaging is a larger dupe of Bobbi Brown pot rouges but the color is an almost exact dupe of Mac's Florida (a LE product), which is my HE everyday blush. It looks like a scary bright fuschia in the pot, but once applied, it produces a very natural pink flush that would work on most skin tones. I'm a very yellow-toned NC15 and it lights up my face with that just-in-from-the-slopes glow. In comparison to Florida, Mac's is a thick, drier cream and this one is thinner and more emollient. This one works especially well for dry skin. This is a steal for such a high-end type of product. Love it!
