These rimmel blushes are AWFUL! When I put this one on, it looked great, but when I walked into light, i realized that it looked like i had piled glitter on my face. It was wayyyy too shimmery for me, and I think that although it is really cheap, the product itself is not good at all.
I love this blush! Great color and super great value. I've been using this for years. I think they reformulated in the last year or so because the one I bought last Fall is more pigmented. Its super soft and blendable and lasts throughout the day too. I love the subtle shimmer. I layer it with the sienna blush to warm up the 'coolness' and it suits my skin tone perfectly.
Other rimmel blushes have been a hit with me but this one is terrible. It's very very weakly pigmented and has far too much shimmer in it. I don't want to look like pale frosty pink with bumps! This blush can ruin the best foundation and powder job on your face if your trying to hide imperfections. Stay away from this pearly sheen color of 04 pink rose. It's not a nice skin flush color like it appears in the container. It's very pale and frosty and doesn't blend well.
I got this on sale at Zellers (Canadian store) for only $3! It's cheap and it gives you a nice looking pink colour on your cheeks! My only problem with it is that it kinda has too much shimmer especially if you go outside in the sun. When you're indoors though, the shimmer isn't too noticeable! Other than that, great product!
Love this blush! Picked it up on a whim at CVS for $2.50 last month and was pleasantly surprised with how great it looks. I have extremely fair skin with pink undertones and am happy to have found a blush that looks natural. Not sparkly, doesn't look muddy, lasts all day, doesn't break me out, and if applied with a light hand, gives a great boost of color to my 40+ year old skin. I haven't had any problems with the packaging either. Definite keeper, possibly HG status.
Pretty, flattering cool pink on my warm light skin. Perfect for the apples of the cheeks. It's nicely pigmented and applies without looking chalky or streaky.
My only problem with it is the glitter and that's a deal-breaker for me. Even though the packaging is streamlined, I have no room for glittery products, so I'll probably throw this out. Luckily, it was cheap and as part of a BOGO, it cost less than two dollars.
Great drugstore blush, nice deep rose that stays on all day, looks great on my medium skin, paid $2 CAD on sale, great value, nice enough to wear everyday, no brush included, stocked up on some other colours, but keep coming back to this one, will buy again
Really soft, pretty, and natural. This is the perfect blush. I have tried sooooo many mac brushes but always come back to this one. I'm not going to get too detailed with the color because many have already. Its a beautiful rosy pink. I'd say it suites most skintones. Its not very pigmented.... but if layered you can achieve the perfect blush.
I will continue to rebuy.
(the packaging sux... everytime the blush crumbles on me).
I agree with AthenaNike about Rimmel's packaging -- it's terrible. Rimmel is good quality for the money but I no longer buy it because I got tired of having the plastic cases crack and break at the slightest provocation!!!
Rimmel's blushes are by far my favourite blushes to use these days. For the cost and pigment you get, the value is totally worth it. If you have pale skin this is a very complimentary blush for the days where you want to look a bit rosy and windswept like you just got back from a jaunt in Aspen off a ski hill in the middle of winter. Use it with a light hand though or you'll wind up looking like a doll.
