As so many other reviewers have said, this is one amazingly gorgeous blush! It looks like a natural flush of color that goes well with a smokey eye look or bold lipsticks. I have yellow undertones, NC25, and this blush looks very soft and natural. Sometimes I wear it as a highlighter and it also looks pretty, not too garish on me like some of the bronzers I have tried. I think it would look great on many different skin tones!
This blush is fantastic! I thought it wouldn't show up on my NC35/37 skin, but when I saw it for $10 at the Lancome outlet, I decided to give it a try. I am SO glad I did! The texture of this blush is one of the smoothest I've tried and it is so pigmented. On my tanned skin this shows up as a nude-pink with very fine shimmer. I like to layer it with NARS Mata Hari when I want more "pop" on my cheekbones. This is totally worth the hype.
This is a fabulous product. I have very fair skin. NC 20- I have dark auburn hair (which I suppose is actually still a light shade of hair). I have grey eyes and my skin freckles easily.
I use this as an all over powder. I use a large brush and sweep it over eyes, t-zone, cheeks...its gives a beautiful glow that is the perfect shade for my pale skin.
I do not wear alot of make up. I usually use Philosophy the present, a dab of MAC Lilicent...and then I do a sweep of this...and then do my eyebrows, mascara, and ls and lg. I love powder blushes and bronzers and use a few of them the same way, but this is definitely one of my favs. I will be getting a back up.
This is shimmery, but not loud and crazy shimmery....its just enough and it does not turn orange...its sort of a medium beige color with a bit of mauve in it...just a bit and maybe a bit of a golden color in there as well. Overall though, it is very light. "Subtil" describes it perfectly!!
I got a sample of this years and years ago and first thought it was just to pale to look like anything. I was so wrong! On fair skinned people, this is just the most darling color. You really can't apply it wrong. It's sort of pinky, sort of nude. I always had a problem with other blush breaking my cheeks out and this is oil free and doesn't seem to cause me to break out. It's soooo expensive, but will last forever. I haven't had this in a while, waiting for a lancome special to buy this. Pale skinned people, you can't go wrong with this for everyday wear.
This is by far my favorite blush. It gives a beautiful glow that makes you look fresh and bright. Plus, the shimmer in this blush is extremely fine and not just chunks of glitter. I don't care much for the brush, I just use my ecotools powder brush!
Meil glace is one of my favorite blushes. It's a beautiful light nude blush with some fine shimmer that creates a glow. I find this much more flattering than a bronzer on me, and similar in use. Color is a nude peachy pink beige. I was using NARS Madly for this look but Madly was just too orange on me (if you have a darker skintone and MG doesn't show up try Madly!). If you like Meil Glace, you also may like Benefit Dandelion which is less beige and more peachy, but similar to the Meil Glace. For me, these light blushes just look more natural. There is a slight scent but it goes away.
this is my HG blush, even though its super expensive. its totally worth it! it gives me a natural flush with a little shimmer. i have to be light handed though, it else I end up looking like a doll. i highly recommend this blush!
I have medium skin & thought that this blush would be too light for me but it turned out pretty nice. It gave me a light glow and looks very natural. it's too sparkly & too tense of a color so it's a perfect choice for the office but prob not dramatic enough for night time. Another bonus, it's lasts all day. continued >>
Early review, but this may be a HG for me. NW15 (pale and slightly cool), and with on and off rosacea of the 'flushing' variety, so I've always avoided blush entirely--you start to really hate 'pink' in your cheeks and do anything to avoid it. However, lately I've been really getting into makeup and have learned how to apply my foundation really well to cover the unevenness from rosacea...which means I end up with not enough color and looking a bit ashen.
So I've been trying to find a blush that will work for me. Most things I have tried have been too pigmented or too sparkly for my taste (cream blushes, UD 'afterglow' blushes, the usual NARS suspects, etc), but I saw Miel Glace in the store and fell in love. It gives just the hint of color I am looking for and I don't have to worry about over-applying it with my inexperienced hand. Like other Lancome products it is lightly scented, but this does not bother me (I like the scent). It is expensive but a good amount of product. The small brush included seems useless and I'm not sure they should bother with it, honestly.
If you are just beginning with blush or are very pale and worried about looking like a clown, this is an excellent place to start.
On my pale coloring (NW10) Miel Glace looks more brown with a hint of rose and looks more bronzer than blush on me ...... but let me add, that I really love this ....... I do have to be careful to apply just a bit, so I use my skunk brush and apply to my cheekbones and it really defines the lines ...... I recommend this to other PPPs as myself..
