This blush is just ok. The one thing that gets to me is the packaging, and it can turn into a mess real fast. That's primarily why I don't reach for it that often. However, it is a flattering shade against my NC 35 skin tone. A little goes a long way with this stuff.

Flowers is a blush that looks quite clownish and very bright in the pot. But a tiny amount applied just on the apples of the cheek gives off a very pretty pop of colour. I would describe it as rosy/pink flush. Very natural and as some reviewers have said, it would look great on tanned or light skin tones. When i wear flowers it reminds me of spring. Its a very girly tone of pink with a hint of red in it and very very finely milled shimmer but when applied, there is no sign of it, but it jst imparts a natural and healthy glow to your cheeks. Great staying power and lovely pigmentation. I would highly recommend!

Although this color may look very bright and clownish, I promise , if applied correctly, this blush is the most gorgeous color ever!!! I have a medium/olive skin with yellow undertones and this product gives me a perfect glow. It is very important that you use a very, VERY small amount when applying. My method of application is turning the pot upside down and gently tap on the bottom of it so that some powder will get on the lid. Then, I turn it right side up, tap on the lid so excess powder falls back into the pot, then use whats left on the lid. I've had this product for a year and I'm no where close to finishing this! It'll probably last a couple more years!

Flowers didn't work out for me - it's a beautiful color, just on someone else. I'm not quite sure how to rate it, because it's perfect for other people, but so abysmal on me.
I'm NC15 or so, on the cool side, and this color just never looked right. Even "cutting" it with 2 parts Flowers to 1 part Mineral Veil, my usual BE blush trick, it was just too darn pink. Very synthetic on me.
However, if you already know that a clear bright pink shade works for you, it's worth trying, and always swappable!
(As a reviewer mentioned below, it really does look like Sushi Flower, which I've been known to use as a blush.)

BE Flowers -- I LUVVVVV this beautiful bright coral-pink blush color!
This shade looks scary bright in the pot, but it applies VERY sheerly if you use a very fluffy brush and just a tiny bit of product (I shake the container, tap the lid, and then ONLY use whatever dusting of color remains on the inside of the lid! For you MAC lovers, if Sushi Flower e/s and Rule e/s had a baby blush, BE Flowers would be it! haha :-) On my skin, it just leaves a pretty POP of color if I use as a blush. If I use as an all over face color, sheerly applied, it neutralizes the green in my skin and just leaves my skintone looking bright and lightly flushed.
It's nothing short of gorgeous! It transforms my light olive neutral toned skin -- which can look sallow to greenish beige without a tan (nice, huh? lol) -- into a radiant,girly-flirty, healthy, just came in from a jog type of glow. Ooooooh so pretty! On my faux tanned skin? OMG, it's just stunningly pretty. BE Flowers just gives me that California Blonde type of look: pretty and fresh. It's the color I go to when I'm wearing a brown smokey eye/light nude lip look, and want to just freshen/liven it up a bit.
Similar blushes with this intensity of color =
BE Fruitcocktail (a bit cooler in tone pink than Flowers, but applies even more sheerly than Flowers).
CoverGirl Cheekers in Classic Pink (OMG, LUVVVV this shade! It's also a vibrant pink but "neutral" in tone. Pretty on untanned skin, but OMG gorgeous on tanned or olive skintones! This color gives that "I know it's not good, but I got a bit sunburned today" look when layered over a bronzer! lol LUVVVV it! And it looks gorgeous layered over BE Flowers (Flowers lightly dusted all over, and then Classic Pink as a blush...WOW!).
I love pairing these more vibrant hued blushes with muted smokey eyes (brown, or plum smokey eye), + MAC Tarnish (dkest green-black) e/l (or Feline black e/l), and a light muted nude lip (any tone works!).
FYI: I have :blonde hair/light olive, but faux tanned skin/hazel brown eyes.

I am disgustingly in love with Flowers! Goes on as a gorgeous reddish pink so you're getting that 'just-ran-around-the-block-on-a-cold-day' look. It immediately makes me feel oh-so-pretty and glowing! I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a natural, healthy look.

Flowers blush is my absolute favorite beauty product I own. It looks incredibly bright in the container but truly is a beautiful shade of pink on almost any complexion; I always get complements! A little really does go a long way, I have had mine for almost 2 years now and with almost every day use it is still over halfway full. I highly recommend this for anyone- both fair and tan skinned :)

I received this in one of QVC's show. I have very light skin and this gives the right touch of pink. The brush came with it, but it sheds and Sonia Kashuk blush tool works better. It took some time to learn how to apply the Bare Escentual's products. My daughter uses this and has light tanned skin. Good product.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
This was a no-go for me, despite everyone else's good luck with it. It's just too pigmented and I could never get it to look even, even with my MAC 187 brush. Putting it up for swap.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I love this blush. It's the perfect pink shade for my fair skin. It works for my light complexion and my mother's medium complexion. It applies like a dream. It's the perfect powder that feels like a cream. It never dries out my skin or settles in my pores. It just buffs into my cheeks and looks like airbrushed makeup. It's easy to over apply, because it's so pigmented but after an application or two you'll really get a feel for how much you need. A tiny bit goes a very long way, but that just means that 1 jar lasts FOREVER.
This is a perfect rosy, bright pink that looks just like I pinched my cheeks, or the color of warm cheeks on a cold day. Plum and browns colors make me look grubby, and peaches make me look too tanned or orange. There are lighter baby pinks in the BE collection, but they are too cotton candy colored for my skin. This color is JUST right.

I love this color as a blush on my pale white skin (NW20). It's a really pretty color. The only thing I don't like is the packaging, but then I really don't like the packaging on most of the BE line. I don't use their brushes, as I think they're pretty crappy, and "real" blush brushes are just too big for this tiny pot. Would definitely keep using it though!

I actually received a sample of Bare Escentuals Flowers blush from mspicky several years ago. After wearing it a few times, I had to go out and buy a jar! Flowers looks like a scary matte, red powder. I'm normally wary of reddish blushes because they have a tendency to look like a bruise (NARS Sin), a rash (Chanel Narcisse), or sunburn (MAC Sunbasque) on my MAC C3 skin. I apply Flowers by first remving the desired amount of product to a clean surface (sifter jar lid), and then I swirl my blush brush into the product. With a very tiny amount of Flowers, I get a soft rosey glow. With a deeper application, I get a slight fruit punch-colored blush that looks great with a tan. If you go for the deeper application, as the reviewer below said, pair Flowers with Bare Escentuals Warmth All Over Face Color. The effect is surprisingly natural.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
Lasts a good while on my face, very pleased. Pretty colour, and you only use a little so the pot is lasting ages. Looks great as a brightener all over the face with a light hand, and as a deep blusher over cheek area.
I am really impressed by Warmth and Flowers, both very flattering if used properly. I still wouldn't trust using their foundation, but for blushes and brighteners etc, they know their stuff. All in all, very good value and most definitely an essential for me.
Packaging makes it impossible to take on holiday, but that's a detail I suppose. Will use a little pot I guess. Couldn't not take it- I look very plain without this blusher. There are others equally nice, eg Lancome Marshmallow. But this offers best value, pigment really lasts in the jar. Also thankfully has never made me break out. Perfect!

I love flowers! It is my favorite. This wil last me forever. Not terribly expensive for how much you get. I have dark skin and it makes my cheeks look rosey.. perfect. I love it! I would recommend it for girls with darker skin. Try it on at your nearest BE store first, the color is much darker in the pot.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Relaxed, Medium Eyes: Brown
I got a sample of the product. On the pot the color is hideously dark and opaque and I thought that would hideousness would rub on me; but I changed my mind when applied on my face. Very pretty dark rosey flush on the cheeks and fabulous mixed with vaseline on my lips. :) I want a lipstick of this color!!
I'd repurchase a sample, but not the entire pot. I might get tired of it.

Love this coral/dark pink color, with a undertone of a natural rosey "flush" color to it! It is very pigmented, so just a little bit on the top of the cheeks gives you a look like you have been outside all day, playing tennis, or skiing, something active on a sunny day. Almost like the start of a little sunburn. It looks great applied to cheeks over a light dusting all over Bare Radiance, or a light all-over dusting of bronzer, but is also beautiful on my skin at its lightest (Med-Beige). It adds the perfect amount of color, you can never look unhealthy or washed out when wearing Flowers. The color lasts all day, and looks fresh all day as well. This blush is a new staple of mine from Bare Escentuals that I will be wearing year round (looks awesome with a tan!)
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Black, Straight Eyes: Brown
A winter blush for sure. It has the pinky been out in the cold too long look, or if you got embarrassed because some cute guy said something cheeky. LOL it's one of my favorites.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have most of the BE blushes and I really like them. They are all very pigmented, a jar will last forever, lasts almost all day and no breakouts. Flowers is a cool silvery pink. its not as bright as it looks in the jar. Pretty color. Did look nice on my NC30 light olive complexion. Retails for $18 for a large jar with sifter top.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
The color looks very dark in the container, but on the skin it looks like your cheeks are flushed. Alot of product for the money.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This blush has great staying power and will last forever because only the tiniest amount is needed (it's very easy to overdo this one!). It looks like a scary red-pink in the container, but it gives a healthy natural flush to the cheeks and is lovely when combined with clear radiance. I would purchase B.E blusher again, maybe not this colour though.
