Ick! I don't know why I thought I'd try this, as I haven't used CG products since middle school. But it looked like something fun to try, so I picked it up. I'm not especially sensitive to scents, and it always irritates me when people give products low ratings because of fragrance, but this is just terrible. It smells cheap. Aside from the overpoweringly tacky smell, the staying power and color aren't special. Wouldn't use more than once, let alone repurchase.
This blush is really compact but overall the colors tend to be horrible and can make anyone look like a clown. I really liked the fact that it was small and portable (ALSO CHEAP!) but i'd rather spend a little more and get a better brush and better quality blush
What Cheekers has going for it is that you can slip it into your pocket or into a small purse. It is definitely the tiniest blush at the drugstore. And that's all the good I have to say about it.
In a rush today, I bought this in Rose Silk just to have some blush on hand. It's a pretty, neutral peachy-pink, but the brush that comes with it is utterly useless, almost as small as an eyeshadow brush, thus necessitating the use of a separate blush brush. The pigmentation is awful, very sheer, and within a couple of hours it just slid down my face and disappeared. Oh, except for the silvery frost part, which made my cheeks simply look shiny. I have oily skin, but when I prep with foundation I have no problems with powder blush... until now.
Super-cheap, but not recommended. Save up and get a nice blush.
I love this blush! I have it in Natural Rose. I don't need to put much on for it to give me a natural rosy cheek. I don't look like I've been just working out for three hours and am really out of breath, it looks perfect. The color matches my skin tone very nicely and compliments my cheek bones. There are just two downsides. Which aren't really downsides at all. The first, the brush. It's really little and isn't very good for putting blush on. But that is easily fixed by just using a different brush. And the second, the smell. I don't mind it, it isn't bad. But I prefer my make up without a scent. No biggie. I will still definitely buy this again!
I have this in Precious Pink (like a neutral glow) and like the color - very subtle and natural just to use a bit on my cheeks.
The downside is the smell -- this particular Covergirl product still has that old Noxema scent to it. Who wants to smell that close to your nose for hours?-not me. Wish they'd ditch the Noxema ingredient/fragrance.
I love this blush! I have used different shades before but am right now on Pretty Peach. I use a different Cover Girl brush to apply it, the brush that is made for putting blush on, bought separately. I sometimes use the little blush, for a specific area maybe, rarely. But, I love this product and it is very easy to put it on! Love it! =D
One of my favorite blushes. I have Classic Pink, Rose Silk and Pretty Peach; all very flattering for my skintone (I'm around a mac nc20). I always get just the right amount of color without looking too clownish or accidently putting on too much and having to pile on translucent powder to tone down the color. It's pretty much the only blush I buy over and over again. The only trouble I have is deciding which of my 3 fave colors would I buy next when I run out.
Why would you buy anything more expensive? I use Pretty Peach, which is a good "natural flush" look on my fair skin. I wind up using this almost every day, since I'm so pale that people sometimes assume I'm sick if I don't wear something on my cheeks. It's a good quality product that lasts all day. Only complaint is the brush, which is ok at first (although tiny) but eventually starts to lose hairs all over the place. Better to use a separate, bigger blush brush.
A good blush at an affordable price. My only complaint? The brush! I wish they'd change the hair they used. I know that the small brush is not the best for applying the product, but it can be used for touch ups if only the brush was softer...
For the price, these are some of the best drugstore blushes. Maybe I'm biased, since Cover Girl Cheekers were my first blushes, introduced to me by my mom in middle school. I think I wore Rose Silk back then. Right now I have True Plum, which is flattering on my pale skin. I happen to love the scent of CG's blushes!
