I decided to try this based on all the great reviews. I was very disappointed, in the pan this looked like a very pretty natural pink color and I thought it would look great on my fair skin. After applying one layer of this I could hardly tell it was even there. So I tried layering it but then it just looked chalky and dry.
My favorite go-to blush... EVER! On me, it shows up more as peachy than pink and that's exactly how I like it. The color is subtle and great for any occasions. It's easy to apply with a fluffy brush and I can build up on the color. This blush is THE BOMB! :)
I'm not really one for blush but when I do wear it I wear this. Its so soft and gives me a hint of color nothing ridiculous which is what I've always been scared of. This truely is a beautiful color and is very subtle.
Santa Rose is a nice pale rose color, buildable, natural. It's a good go-to shade in my collection because it's safe and goes with most makeup looks. My biggest complaint is that it is not long lasting - I need to reapply every 2 to 4 hours.
I gave this blush three lippies but it's not *bad*. It's just not remarkable or groundbreaking, IMHO. It's good, not great, not an outstanding shade. I'd buy it again just for the convenience factor, but it doesn't have the pop and long-lasting finish I'm looking for in a natural blush.
Just adding to the positive reviews of this product! I used to have "Petal" by Elizabeth Arden, which was the perfect delicate rose shade for fair complexions, but after I used it UP (something we makeup hounds don't often do) I decided to replace it with something more affordable. Santa Rose is just right. I just like Rimmel products period!
Man, I should have known better than to buy the hype and believe in a drugstore blush. The only drugstore blush I've used, ever, that wasn't disappointing, was Milani's baked blush. This one.. just chalky. The color is a decent, flattering, dusty rose, but the actual consistency is just not up to my blush-standards. Would not repurchase.
Love this blush! Great price nice colors and it's pretty pigmented but also buildable, I plan on buying more colors!!!
I have been using this blush for almost 6months now, and it's the only one I go back to for daily use. It's buildable and suits many skin tones! I have asian, yellow under-toned beige skin and it looks lovely for both summer and winter. I don't think I need to use over $20 for a high end blush when this one does me so much good
I love this blush! It has been my go to blush for almost two years now. I love how Santa Rose looks on my skin and the tone suits many looks! I have re-purchased this time and time again. I find that Pink Rose is too bright for my skin whilst I wear Bronze more as an evening/going out shade. Santa Rose is just perfect for every other time of the day :). My only complaint about the packaging would be that I sometimes find the container difficult to open but apart from that it's perfect. I don't know what I would do if this were ever to be discontinued!
I actually really like this blush. The color is very good because I'm extremely pale and anything too pigmented is an instant kill. However, yes, the packaging is very, very flimsy and cheap, and it is a bit sparkly.
