My favorite makeup product as of now! I wasn't surprised at how well this blush worked because of all the positive reviews and such, but I'm surprised at how much I love it. Before now, I've never, ever worn blush. I thought I didn't really need to, but now that I've started using this, there's such a difference in how my skin looks. This product is so subtle and natural looking that I literally don't look like I'm wearing. It looks like I've just been out in the sun for a while. Of course it's slightly pricey, but I think it's worth it for something that works so well.
And just as a warning for future purchasers: Don't be intimidated by the color in the tube! It seems REALLY vibrant/dark, but the Rosy shade is just a nice natural pinkish red flush. It's very subtle yet buildable to make it as dark as you need.
LOVE! It's not the cheapest gel blush ($18) but it will last you a long time and is very wearable. I got this in the color "Natural" and it is everything that it claims to be. You only need a little drop on the apple of your cheek. If you need more color, this is buildable. Again, looks very natural on me and gives my complexion a wonderful hue.
I just recently bought all of these (Natural, Rosy, Sunkissed and Flushed) on the Pixi website while they were on sale- only ~$6 each!!! I really like these because they give a more natural look than powder or cream, they blend very easily and they last FOREVER, like until I take off my MU :D I have very oily skin and most other blushes wear off in a couple if hours so that is pretty amazing, I can def say that I would repurchase, even for the full price!
I just bought my first cheek gel in "Natural" based off of Lisa Eldridge's amazing tutorial which included it, and I couldn't be happier. This gives an amazing glow, and it's perfect for my travel bag. I'm always trying to find things that I can put into an easy travel routine, and for my face, I've come up with the essentials being MUFE F&B, followed by this on my cheeks, and ELF "spotlight" highlighter on cheek bones. That's all, face completely done after that! All applied with my fingers, to make things easier. The only thing I didn't love was the price...I know, I can't complain because it's a great product, but $18 for Target is pretty pricey. I ended up searching on Ebay for this and found it for $10 or something like that. Staying power is wonderful, melts right into your skin, and it doesn't dry super-quick like I felt Benetint did. I can actually work with this, massage it into my skin and not feel like it's going to dry me out or leave a stain if I didn't rub in quickly enough.
Flushed is dark and on my pale skin looks great! I also use it to stain my lips. When I apply this blush I rub it into my cheeks, then I add my foundation. It gives a perfect flushed look!
I have this in Flushed (the bright red one). I'm kind of on the fence about how much I like this product.
PROS: As a gel in a squeeze-y tube, it's super easy to apply and easy to carry around in your purse. I just take a small drop (emphasis on small) and dab it around my cheek area. It's a super subtle, natural look so if you really want the red to show up, you may have to layer / add more. The best thing about this product is that it REALLY helps your powder blushes last if you layer them on top. I think it adds at least a few hours to most of my powder blushes!
CONS: I've noticed that it takes off any concealer I put underneath it, so due to this, it can emphasize acne scars and dark spots. Sometimes that can make any powder blushes you add on top look splotchy. :(
I'm not typically a blush user, and I never wore blush on a daily basis ntil I purchased this. I was a little shocked when I saw the sample tubes, because the colors look unnatural. I only tested it to see how anyone would even buy such outrageous colors, but to my suprise, they applied gorgeously and naturally. I am very light skinned, so I stayed away from flushed, but I purchased rosy and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. $18 dollars is pricey, especially for a makeup item at target, but its definitely worth it.
Beautiful cheek colour. I saw it on a Lisa Eldridge video and I went to Boots to try it. There are 4 colours and even if in the tube they look shocking when applied they are very sheer and natural. I am hooked. The price is reasonable: £12.50 for 11.34 grams. I need a very tiny dot and it would last me for ages. I have NC15 complexion and I use the colour in Natural. It imparts a very healthy rosey flush. It is buildable and does not look clowny. It does not leave streaks and it is like the flush is coming from within. I apply it either with fingers or a foundation brush. The staying power is impressive. Better than Becca and Nars cream blushes. I tried it also on the lips, but it is too dry.
Highly recommended. HG material. I wish Pixi did a similar long stay power product for the eyes.
This stuff is magical!! Definitely applies easier with a brush and blending out but the formula is great - lasts all day and gives the cheek a nice healthy glow without being greasy or dry. Love!! Also, does not make my eczema flare up or skin itch..something I have trouble with in a lot of blush. Can't wait to try all the colours.
I agree with the other reviewers that this is nonsticky and moisturizing, as well as good for sensitive skin types. I only wish I had chosen a different color than sunkissed- I was hoping to use it as a bronzer but it is too reddish for my skintone. I am half asian with a golden complexion, and rosy/reddish hues tend to look unnatural on me, but I'm sure it would be a decent contour/blusher color for someone with more beige coloring.
