I have 2 of these, one shade is a pretty raspberry rosy pink and the other one is almost bronze. Althought these blushes are awesome, I don't think I would buy it again, since they are expensive for the amount you get (I think it's 21.00 $CND). And moreover, IMHO it's too shimmery for a day wear. Maybe it's because I am pale and the shimmers show up a lot on my skin. But still, I think the concept is intelligent.

However, the shades I own are very pretty and they give a glowing finish. I use the same piece of paper a few times, they contain a lot of pigments. But if I have an heavy hand, it tends to look cakey over a foundation. Since I don't wear foundation anymore, I'll give it a try on my bare cheeks.

These blushes look better on a slighlty tanned skin, I gave some sheets to my mother, (she's always coming back from a trip to Cuba so she's always tanned! lol) and she looked gorgeous. She absolutely loves these blushes and she's not a makeup addict like her daughter... hehe... But I disgress - on my PPP skin it could look too clownish if I apply it with an heavy hand.

Oh, and lastly, one tip from a Lancme SA: you can swipe it on your hair to give it a subtle touch of shimmers/color.
