I bought this blush while on vacation in Denver last January. It is water based, so I thought terrific. I used it for quite a long time, then went back to Stila and then on to Tarte, even Posie Tint. I am back to Charming, nice healthy glow and perfect for summer. I gave the packaging a 3, mostly because of the plastic cover that keeps getting in the way. But I would still buy this again, but probably will not have to for a long time.

I normally love Chantecaille products, this blush is so-so. There are better blushers out there...especially for the price. I keep it in my drawer and use it from time to time when I want a change, but I always go back to my HG, Tarte cheek stain.

I loved this blush. It has the best texture I've ever felt in a cream or gel blush. It is really smooth and glides effortlessly. On the skin, it really does feel like water almost. On me, this lasts 10+ hours -- all day at work and until I take it off. I apply with a stippling brush and it looks great! The color is amazing and give me the perfect pink flush. Definitely would repurchase, and am looking into other colors, as well!

I have been on a quest recently for cream blush. I find that the creams are nicer on my aging skin. I keep returning to this blush and color. A nice deeper shade of pink. Looks very natural on my PPP complexion. Only need a little swipe. It blends very well over foundation or TM.

I wish I didn't like this blush so mch considering how expensive Chantecaille products are, but I was lured to buy one by a GWP and it has since become my HG. Charming is a pretty pink colour that on my NC/W20 skin looks like a natural flush, and it is fairly pigmented so I don't need to apply a lot of product in order for it to show.
Application is supereasy thanks to the clever packaging: it's a straightforward stick format which you twist up and down like a regular lipsitck. All I do is dot my cheek with the blush as necessary and blend in. While some people might complain about the plastic protective lid that covers the product inside the actual cap, I never had problems removing it and keep it on when the blush isn't in use to preserve it.
The creamy texture of the blush is cold to the touch and feels very refreshing. I personally find it easy to apply and blend.
Verdict: It's a great quality product, in a lovely and flattering shade. I'd definitely repurchase, but think it will last for a long time!

I always had an aversion to stick foundations and blushers, until I used this one. I received a generous GWP sample of Aquablush in Radiance and was absolutely taken aback with the absolute perfectness of it. I immediately rushed out and bought Aquablush in Charming, Daring and Radiance. This is the best performing and most natural looking stick blush you can find. It goes like a dream on your skin, very sheer and cooling. I was expecting breakouts like other cream blushers tend to give. None. It is very easy to apply as you can either dot on your cheeks or draw a line and then blend in with your fingers. I tried it both and it works either way. You can by all means apply it on powder foundations, too as it does not smudge or drag the base. I highlight this with Radiance on top of my cheekbones, eye orbital bone and nose. It will be great to use on tanned skin. I love Chantecaille.

Loving this Aquablush! I hemmed and hawed over purchasing this (or it was OOS whenever I tried to buy it!) but finally decided to order from Neiman Marcus during their beauty event and I'm so glad I did! This is my first foray into the cream/gel blush world and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I have combo, acne-prone skin so I am always hesitant to apply anything heavier than a powder to my face but this product is so lightweight and hasn't caused any problems.
I am NC30ish, MUFE F&B 32 is my perfect match, and Charming is lovely on. Gives a "cute" pink flush. Taking the little top cap off is no easy task; I gouged both hands actually, but once you get past that the product is fantastic. Feels cool upon application, is quite pigmented and dries quickly. I want to try more colors now!

While I would agree that this is overall a nice product, I have to admit that I'm not quite sure what the aquablush hype is all about. The blush is creamy and goes and very smoothly. However it doesn't last any better then any other cream blush that I have tried (pout flush blush for example) and it may even have faded abit quicker. One big bonus with this this product is the packaging. The blush stick itself is so thick that one swipe results in a nice application amount/distribution.
The color is a nice one for my coloring (nc30/35, GA 5.5, chanel 2/40 olive) and it creates a nice brightening effect. Just for a point of reference, the shade is similar to stila convertible color in lillium.
Overall, although I will enjoy using this product I will not repurchase because it does not last well and it is not outstanding enough to merit the price. I have had my curiosity sated and can now return to my beloved chanel and GA blushes :).

This is my favorite purchase of 2008--and maybe my HG blush.
The color is perfect for me--I am NC 25-30, GA LSF 5, Dior Forever powder 030. I've finally figured out that I need clear, true blush colors rather than dusky, browned colors or my cheeks look muddy and I look tired/older. Charming is a medium pinky rose with little to no shimmer that brightens up my complexion without looking garish or "dolly." It is pigmented but sheer, if that makes sense: plenty of color, but allows the skin beneath to show through so it looks natural. (For reference, I think Charming color compares to Chanel JC in Poesie, or maybe a slightly darker version of Narcisse.)
I wear powder foundation (Shiseido Perfect Smoothing in I20), and I find that my best application method is to lightly dot the Aquablush on my apple and blend quickly, one cheek at a time. The blush is fairly pigmented and cool and it dries quickly on me, so I need to move fast so that it's easy to blend. I find it very long lasting, even without any powder over top.
I love this stuff. I am definitely going to explore other Aquablush colors. They are expensive, but perhaps not so bad when you consider how much product is in the stick and how beautifully they perform. I'd highly recommend them (or at least I recommend Charming!).
For reference: I'm brunette, hazel eyes, skin colors mentioned above.

I'm surprised that I'm first to review this product! After mooning over this for about a year, I finally bought it, and I'm glad I did (even for the price--$42). The Aquablushes are water-based, glide on, feel cool, are amazingly easy to blend, and wear well on me. This color is perfect for my C3/Stila C sallow skin. It's a lovely pink, light but slightly muted. It's somewhere between Stila Tutu and Bud. Just lovely--enough to make you look healthy, but not clownish. There is a *slight* shimmer, but just enough to make you glow, not enough to show up as shimmer, even in daylight. The packaging is meant to keep the product moist, so the tube can be a little difficult to separate and the little cap on the blush a little difficult to get off, but it's not a major gripe from me. I'll never use this up--the tube is *huge*--but I would repurchase. Highly recommended!
