Someone at Rimmel must be reading MUA because they have repackaged their blushes with a hinged lid, just as MUA-ers have been crying out for since they were first released. I never minded the snap-on lids and have bought two other powder blushes in the past, but this newly designed one kept calling to me from the display and I had to buy it. Pale girls, caution: this puppy is HIGHLY pigmented, all you need to do is tap your brush against it once and you'll be fine. Unless you actually WANT to look like a circus clown, that is. That being said, it gives a very pretty flush, that just-in-from-the-cold look, and lasts all day. It's cute, it's a staple color, it's cheap. Not much else to ask for.
I like this blush. Such a lovely shade of pink!
Cute. It works. Nice, flattering shade.
This product just didn't really do it for me. I went from going to a completely matte blush (which was discontinued) to this... and it was just too much shimmer. I went on a jog with my boyfriend. I had put on a tad bit of make up beforehand. He goes, "what is that sparkly stuff on your face?"... (granted we were standing in the sun), but still, even a little bit of shimmer is too much for me.
I had to use a LOT to get the look I wanted. Once I got the look I wanted, it looked pretty good, however this stuff rubs off really easily. Let me emphasize that- REALLY easily.
The packing quality was OK minus the fact that when I'd rub my blush stick against it, it would shed all over my make up counter! How annoying.
Definitely not buying again, and still on the search for a natural looking matte blush that stays put.
Thanks to MUA for this recommendation! I really like this blush and I am VERY particular about blush. It is a lovely shade of pink that I think would flatter lots of ladies (no wonder I snagged the last remaining one on display). The older I get, the more difficult it has become to find a blush that is not too bright, too powdery, too greasy, too clownish, too sparkly, too orangey, or too drab. Pink Rose is HG material!
Sexy, pink flush thats not too dark, too light, or too bright. Love the shade it seems cool to me and looks very natural. I happen to like the packaging because its so small and it stays shut fine for me. This is such a great pink and goes well with any eye shades. I can use it with bronzer and it just makes my cheeks glow. Love it.
Def. worth the price! Gives out a mild healhty lokking pink shade. not too light but not too dark..just right!
The neg point I found about this product is its packing. Basically the blush tray fell off the plastic container after a little bit of time. also, the top doesn't really stay closed upon the blush. it falls off so I just cant take it in a bag with me. overall still great however.
Lovely sheer pink color, looks very natural on my PPP skin. I would reccommend this product to anyone with pale skin, for it can be layer to achieve many different looks. This is similar to my natural flushed color, and can be very sexy when applied heavily. Even with a heavy application, it still looks natural and light, like I came from a brisk walk and not a Drag Queen convention. My only complaint is the crappy packaging, although kudos in avoiding the nasty stiff brush trap! Dirt cheap, nice quality, perfect colour...sounds like HG material!
My usual blush is Jane's Blossom, which is a light pink. This is darker and on me, a nice fall blush. Goes on smooth, lasts all day. The packaging is the worst but will definitely buy again.
I use this product every day, leaving the Clarins and Clinique lying unused in the makeup drawer. It is reliable, stays put all day long at work and looks natural. My only grumble is that it costs 3.49 UK pounds (or $7 to you guys!) and we make it here in the UK so why is it cheaper in the USA?? I've dropped a lippie as the product seems to run out so quick - a bigger container would help.
