Is there anything else I could possibly say that wasn't said already about this blush? Yes, it's a wonderful rose color-a little strong for someone with fair skin like mine (I'm light neutral) but it suits me so well I actually don't mind wearing it boldly on my cheeks. As far as texture is concerned, it's quite silky and glowy and it applies easily on the skin.

My favorite blush ever. It's a gorgeous color; a little goes a long way; gives a natural glowy finish with no glitter (what shimmer there is results in a truly natural looking glow); it blends wonderfully; and boasts a completely unpowdery silky texture. Color is accurate as described in the review below. Reminds me of my beloved Stila blush in Belle which I did away with when I learned that all those FD & C dyes may have been causing my clogged pores/cosmetic acne.
The silk blushes are my favorite blush formula from Lumiere. The mineral ones are too sparkly and hard to work with. The silk ones have just the tiniest touch of shimmer, and the most natural-looking glowy finish and color selection. They blend beautifully over the Cashmere foundation. I own full sizes of Fresh Roses, Mimosa, Cherry Blossom, and Au Naturale. Sweet Cherub is too light for me (light/med warm in Lumiere, EM Golden Medium), and I'm guessing Moonberry would be too cool-toned. I reach for these often and they are a pleasure to use. I enjoy combining them for different looks.
Only one complaint: recently enlarged my collection and the packaging isn't what it was. The new lids are not transparent, which I miss for convenience. I don't like having to tip the container upside down to know what color it is; that just results in a whole pile of blush waiting for me when I flip it right-side-up and open it. I preferred the chic and practical clear lids I received with my first order.
All things considered, these and my GloMinerals blush in Sweet are definitely HG material for me.

This blush is 1 of my top 2 favorite blushes from Lumiere Cosmetics. It's described on the website as "soft & silky sweet pink rose", and I think it's a very "healthy" looking pink for those of us who like a natural, un-madeup look. The color in the jar is almost exactly the same color that I see on the website swatch, and while it may look like a dark pink there, it's really not when applied.
As with all the blushes I've tried from Lumiere, it's highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It blends easily, doesn't streak and has staying power. It can easily go from daytime to nighttime with a "radiance" applied over it for some shimmer.
I've had "favorite" MMU blushes in other brands that gave me breakouts, but I haven't had that at all with Lumiere's blushes.
If you're looking for great blushes - MMU or otherwise - and you want to try something in pink, their sample jar is only $2.50. While a 1/4 teaspoon may not sound like much, mine has lasted me for months because I need so little (and I use Mauvelous blush, too so check out my review on it). My fullsize jar is going to last so long it's definitely a beauty bargain.
Soooo, being the beauty product junkie that I am, I'm looking forward to trying many more blush samples even tho I'm really satisfied with my top 2 faves for now. Especially since the compliments just keep coming on how good I look. :)
