I have this in Soft Cardinal. It's a beautiful pinky coral with a very slight frost, which lends cheeks a healthy glow. This has a great creamy texture. It's like a lipstick in a pot. In fact, it makes quite a nice lipstick. It looks equally nice on its own or topped with a gloss (like L'Oreal 6H Glam Shine in Watermelon Fanatic, which I got to go with it and which might be a limited edition and/or European-only release--I'm not sure). As others have noted, the packaging is a little flimsy, but that won't stop me from using and loving this. I might even check out some of the other colors. Also, this is very affordable--less than 6 euros!
This is my first cream blush which I bought in Soft Pink - looks natural on my yellow-toned Asian skin, has good staying power, and has not broken me out (am a bit acne-prone). I apply with clean fingertips, and it's easy to blend (hot climate though). It's intensely pigmented so although it seems expensive for such a small amount, it will last ages.
However, the plastic lid broke in half when I screwed it on in a hurry one day - to be fair, it was my fault, but the less-than-durable packaging is my only gripe.
I have come to love this product over time.
Initially, i found the colour too intense and the staying power poor. However, i changed the way i apply it and voila! The product has new depths.
I use it with a small contouring brush and dab the product on to my skin rather than rubbing it in because i find this gives the most natural and soft colour.
I would definitely recommend that pale skinned girls who want a reasonably priced drug store product.
Really loving this blush. I def prefer creamy blushes over the powder ones, and this is the best cream blush I've tried.
It is really pigmented so you need the lightest touch when y ou apply - but it should also mean it will last ages.
I use the Soft Pink colour - I'm pretty pale but this is probably the most universally flattering shade for most skin types. Also looks awesome on lips.
Most days i do this on cheeks and lips, pop my Bloom lip gloss on, add sunnies, and I'm out the door!
The packaging is a bit of a pain, and a bit cheap, but on the other hand I like that it is so small as it will fit in any bag, day, evening, or makeup.
My skin can be acne prone, but this doesn't clog my pores - another yay!
I bought this blush in Soft Pink, which looks way more intimidating in the case than on skin. It provides a beautiful pinkish glow on my pale cool-toned skin. However, I was a bit worried about the waxy consistency beforehandů and for a reason: it did eventually break me out on my cheeks :( Such a bummer, because I was really looking forward to using this one. This must a great choice for someone not prone to blemishes!
The case the same one as in Max Factor's eyeshadows, that is to say, very poor quality. The twist-off lid is also very inconvenient.

Before purchasing this, I never knew this has an average 4.7/5 here in MUA and I will add the my personal rave on this product. I have combination sensitive skin, and my skin didn't react with it. I purchased the one in Soft pink and still with my yellow (Asian) undertone, it still perfectly matched it. What's so good about it is it's lasting power. I applied it in the morning, the last thing after applying my powder foundation and without any retouch, when I arrived home, the color is still visible in my cheeks. It's perfect, it's lovely, I tried applying it as a lip tint and loved the effect! And yes, it will surely lasts a long long time :)
The colour I purchased wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I bought it in Soft Candy, and it is an orangey-coral colour - not my thing at all. I prefer reddish-pinks.
Aside from the colour disappointment, this is a decent blusher. It does not blend easily unless it is warmed up a little, which is a minor downside. It is long-lasting and does not rub off easily.
The pot is absolutely tiny but considering how pigmented this product is, it should last me ages.
I recommend this blusher.
I am going to purchase this product again...when it finishes. Lasts forever.
Packaging quality- they were very honest. no applicators needed, would've meant a waste of money from the company since you can use your fingers or a sponge or a brush or whatever you want.
I have uploaded a picture of my two blushes, side by side. the one on the left is the Soft Cardinal and the other one is the Soft Pink.
-beautiful vibrant colors. I have two, 14 Soft Pink and 18 Soft Cardinal. These two colors look very similar but if you look at both you'll be able to spot the difference, one has more orangy undertones and is darker (Cardinal), while the other is a very intense pink (Soft Pink).
-very resistant.....8-10 hours maybe
-when you blend it out it looks very pretty, flushed look.
-i use it as a lipstick too. actually i use it as a lipstick 99% of the time lol. my boyfriend calls the Soft Pink 'the slutty lipstick' haha! it looks a bit like a porn star lipstick...just a little. very very pigmented.
-due to this pigmentation, a little goes a long way and you'll have it for a long time
-doesn't break since it's creamy
-a tad sticky
-must work it to blend it in, especially on the cheeks
-make sure it's the last thing you apply during your makeup routine otherwise everything else will stick to it
-needs a lot of attention when it comes to quantity, because it's so intense. if you don't have a perfectly light hand then you're gonna join my 'slutty lipstick' club lol!
-smells like plasticine
-not very cheap, but...rather expensive for the little quantity.
-the packaging is simple and nice and ok but the fact that the lid is so small makes it difficult to screw back in once you're done with it, or you may also lose it.
i would repurchase. for the moment can't say i will since i've purchased my two pans in January and they still look brand new.
wasn't really impressed with this at all, i'd read cream blushes were supposed to be better than oridnary powders, so i bought this in soft murano and no matter how little i put on, it still looks like i have a red splodge on my skin that won't budge. it doesn't blend well at all. for the price i expected good things but my normal collection 2000 powder blush is miles better
Really love this, have this in the soft pink and is the most natural and flattering pinky ever on my rather pale yellow toned Asian skin.
Really pretty and the best thing about it is that it doesnt have any of the annoying shimmer/glittery bits that you often get in cream/mousse blush.
Very nice finish, easy to put on once you get the hang of cream blushes and overall great! Dont be fooled by the small packaging- last ages and a little goes a long way.
