I would not buy this again because it is too pigmented for me. However, I must note that I *hate* to look like I'm wearing blush. (The only blushes that are sheer enough for me are Becca's Sylph, Malika & Wisp.)

I just touched the tip of my 187 to the cake & lightly applied it, and while it probably would've looked perfect to most people, for me it was too much (because it showed!).

But the shade --- omg, pure heaven. Slightly warm, yet healthy/semi-bright peach. And what everyone says about the "glow from within look" is absolutely true. I didn't know exactly what they meant by that until I tried this. Unlike my other blushes (all powder) this looks like a cream blush because it leaves a glow on your cheeks that looks naturally dewy!? I've never used anything like it . . . a powder that ends up looking like you just blush this shade naturally, if you know what I mean by that.

This is called a "matte" blush, but there is nothing matte about it! Having said that, there is no shimmer either. But since it gives a slightly dewy glow, it just shouldn't be called matte.

I applied it, very sparingly, at 8:15AM. At 11:30PM it was still there in full force - no fading at all, and no oxidizing or changing color. With my slightly yellow coloring (NC20) this shade gives the most naturally beautiful flush. If KA would just make this in a super-sheer version I'd be all over it.
