Love the packaging and that's about it.
I first purchased this in Santa Rose, which color-wise I prefer over Pink Rose.
Pink Rose is a bluish pink shade that gives a nice flush. I just don't like the lasting power and it seems they have altered the formula, cuz every time I swipe my brush over I see lots of product flying every which where...which didn't happen with my older Santa Rose.
Won't repurchase this...
I can't bring myself to buy expensive blushes when companies like Rimmel make great blushes.
This is my everyday blush. Since I live in MI my skin tones change a little with the seasons. I think this looks great on me in the winter and in the summer.
It really is a "flushed" looked. You can wear it with bronzer to create a pink cheeks and a little contouring.
I think "I'm blushing cheeks" are classic and this certainly doesn't break the bank. The brush that came with it is cheap which is ok. I'd still buy it again!
I bought this blush because I usually use very bright blushes very sparingly, and I wanted to try a pretty pink to see what that looked like.
I like this blush formula, it just doesnt' show up well on me. I have used it for serveral days, hoping it would magically show up, LOL. Today I used it with a touch of Rock and Republic X-Rated, and I love that look. So I'll do that until I use it up, or use it alone when I want a *really* barely there blush look.
So I probably won't buy that color again, but will buy Rimmel blush in a different color again.
I can't believe this. I picked it up on a whim because it was on sale and the color looked pretty on the shelf. I only paid $2 for it. I usually wear MAC or Estee Lauder products. I wasn't expecting much from Rimmel. I usually stay away from cheap products. But this surprised me. It was the perfect shade for my skin tone, dark eyes, and hair. I don't have to use too much to achieve a nice healthy look, and it's not too sparkly for my 42 year old skin, so I don't look like a 42 year old trying to be in high school again :) It's a nice fun rosy glow and it doesn't break me out. It's beautiful in all seasons, especially winter time. It's great to find a product that doesn't cost much that works this well. I'm on my second purchase and will continue to buy this shade as long as they sell it.
What can I say about this blush! It is so easily blendable, gives you a really soft focus finish and a really lovely rosy glow. Would definitely recommend! :)
My skin is MAC NC 30-35 and I find this very pigmented! I was afraid it wouldn't show on my skin or become chalky because of its seemingly light color, but I'm very impressed with the quality of this drugstore blush. I'm trying not to buy makeup as I already have way too much, ie. eyeshadows (I have tons to last a lifetime!), eyeliners, powders, foundation, etc. But I only have two blush colors! Coral and peach. So I think this is a good buy since it was on sale and I don't own a nice pink blush. Oh and dandelion by benefit doesn't really count. It's more of a face powder than a blush.
I've always been afraid of blush since my skin tone makes me afraid of almost any color out there (yellow, very yellow undertones!). Since I've seen a lot of pink blushes on the cooler side, I decided to get the warmest pink shade of the rimmel blushes. The pink rose seemed to be more on the peach side and so I went for the plunge. I am not regretting it one bit! The lights at work are probably THE worst for anyone's complexion and yet my cheeks look nice and healthy. I was worried a bit about the shimmer, but it doesn't show much on the face. I'm not sure about lasting power just yet.. but i don't really mind when blush fades on me though:P
The packaging is cute, I love the rimmel crown! I think that's why I have a lot of rimmel products, they know how to make their packaging really cute! However, I'm afraid if I drop it it'll shatter, but I guess that's what comes with the drugstore pricing. Can't beat the quality though, so I will definitely be buying again! I'm going to try some other shades as well..
Rimmel Powder Blush in 004 Pink Rose: I've had this blush for a couple of years now and I love it. It suits my fair, ruddy complexion perfectly and it doesn't have shimmer or irritate my sensitive, acne-prone skin. It gives me a nice, natural flushed look.
Feb. 2011 Update: I don't know when this change took place exactly, but I just went to buy another (replacement) blush in this color and found that "Pink Rose" is now shade 003 and it's a totally different color than before--the new 003 one is lighter and more beigey. None of the current Rimmel blushes match this old Pink Rose 004 shade. Bummer.
Got this on a recent ds haul based on mua reviews. This is a gorgeous, sheer warm pink color with the slightest hint of sheen and is suitable for paler complexions. It's very neutral and therefore would work with both warm and cool skin tones. I adore this color (it might go down as one of my fave colors of all times) The texture is acceptable, blendable, but not as smooth as other blushes I own made by what I consider to be the best blush brands in my collection---Jane, Bobbie Brown, MAC, Laura Mercier, Lorac, Cargo, NYX, and Stila. Of course, the brush is scratchy and useless; it would also be great to have a small mirror; this is the only reason it's not getting a 5. I might come back and upgrade it depending on the love I continue to give it.
what a bueatyfull color,very nice pink ,look like baby face~~~~
I absolutely LOVE this blush!! The packaging is so cute. I love seeing the little crown in the center. (: It's a really great price for such an amazing product. It is the most PIGMENTED blush I own.. Seriously guys.. I tap my brush in it twice (lightly), tap it off and so much color goes on my cheeks! So apply lightly when starting out. It also lasts me through a full 9 hour job and then some! Give this a try if you haven't!
