I bought this blush in Poppy, and I am so happy with it. I applied it with a makeup wedge over my foundation, and a tiny, tiny dot of product blooms into a perfect, natural flush on my cheeks.
This blush is an excellent purchase. The price ($10) is the only reason I held back from getting it before now, but it would be three times as much if it sold at a high-end cosmetics store -- the quality is that good. Long lasting too. It stayed on my face until I washed it off, 8+ hours after initial application. :)
(For reference, I am a N1 or W2 in L'Oreal TM liquid foundation.)

I love this product. I don't have high cheekbones and I don't like how blushes look on me for the most part. A makeup artist at Sephora put a Guerlain liquid tint on me (nearly $50) and I liked how that looked. So, I started looking for a liquid blush that was cheaper and found this. It looks very natural (I got it in Rose) on my medium skin with warm undertones. Although it is called "Rose," it is a neutral color. It is blendable and covering up your mistakes is easier than with a powder blush.

I have this in the color 'Rose' and it's really quite lovely. I got this because I was in the market for a cheaper, possibly better alternative to Benetint. This actually is a creamy color consistency, and not a super-sheer transparent flush like Benetint. I honestly don't know why they marketed this blush as 'sheer,' because that's wayyyy wrong lol. Maybelline Dream Bouncy blushes: now honey, THOSE are sheer. This? I don't think so. :)
As far as staying power, this is quite decent. This beautifully mimics that 'in from the cold' flush that I've been trying to achieve for the longest time without breaking the bank for something like Becca's tints, or any other high-end gel blushes. What I love is that this doesn't look oily or shiny in any way when it settles, it just gives off a nice demi-matte finish. Blends nicely, wears nicely. The one thing I DO have to gripe about is the packaging. First off, I HATE the cap. Just....despise it. Clear, cheap plastic. I also hate the foundation-sized pump it has! This is probably the worst thing about the product. I always have to be super careful when I push down on the pump, because it's so bulky, and so ridiculously easy to dispense way too much product. I feel like I waste more product. If I spend $10 on a blush, I don't care if it's drugstore, it better have sufficient packaging. I would've knocked this down to an overall 3 just because of that, but I like this product too much. :)

I love this! I have no problems with the packaging or anything. I have it in Poppy and it's one of the few blushes that actually shows up on me. It blends in much more easily than any creme blush I have. I am going to go back and consider buying other colors for the fall.

I bought this at Target for around $10 in Peony. I'm in love with the color, it looks super natural on my fair skin. The pump dispenses wayyyy too much product, no matter how gently you press it. Like other reviewers, I put it on the back of my hand and blend it onto my cheeks. Even though I do wash off a lot of excess product, for the color and the staying power I think it's a great buy. It lasted on my cheeks (under the ELF Studio High Definition Powder, which I wear every day) for 6+ hours of being outside. All in all, a great buy and something I would recommend.

I bought this blush (Rose color) at Target because I'd been meaning to try out a liquid blush. I didn't expect much out of it. I figured liquid blush would leave streaks of color on the face or would look too dark or shiny. I was pleasantly surprised. I used this with a Make Up For Ever foundation and loved the way it looks on me. It blended easily, didn't leave any streaks, and looked fairly natural. It gave me the healthy color I needed to avoid looking pale. I will definitely continue using it!
In short, these are the PROS:
-Looks natural (when you use a really light amount)
-Price (compared to high-end products)
-The pump tends to give too much product (one small pump is enough for both cheeks and lips).

I have this in Peony, and I love it for both the lips and cheeks! On the lips, it gives this very nice cherry-popsicle stain that's totally buildable. On the cheeks, it's this beautiful rosy flush.
The only thing I'm not wild about is the packaging. You really only need a tiny amount for both cheeks (and even less for lips) and the way the pump is made, it gives you too much product no matter how lightly you pump it. Other than that, this product is wonderful!

I bought this color in three shades Poppy, Rose, Peony and i have to say that these are all i am ging to wear from here on in. I have very dry skin on my cheeks and with this they look hydrated with a little shimmer, but not too much. it is a little pricey however i am willing to pay it. A little goes a long way.

I bought this liquid tint in Poppy, a bright peachy pink color. It's easy to blend without getting streaky. And it lasts all day, even on sticky summer days.
Although it's not the exact same color, it's a good alternative to Benefit Cha Cha tint, for a fraction the price.

I was sucked into buying this product because of the color. I got Peony - a gorgeous pink with a light gold sheen, reminds me of a pinkier liquid version of Nars Orgasm. Anyway, the blush is too watery imo. It's hard to blend because there isn't enough consistency or substance. But it does give a nice natural flush to the cheeks. As for the packaging, it gets a little messy when pumping out the tint and some of the liquid always gets on the white pump area. Now that I think about it, I should try this on my lips, the tint might work better there!

I love the Benefit Posietint, and was looking for a dupe when I came across Sonia Kashuk's Sheer Liquid Tint in Poppy at my local Target. I was super excited to try it out, but was a little disappointed.
The packaging for the product is a bit bulky, and I can't imagine myself taking it with me on-the-go. The pump is a nice feature, but it tends to give out too much product, even with one pump. I have to put the product on the back of my hand and then on my cheek to evenly distribute it, and even then I tend to wash off a good bit of product from the back of my hand.
The product itself is very watery, and has a distinct smell. Its not terribly unpleasant, but I don't care for it. The product goes on smoothly enough but it takes a quick hand to blend out. However, I find myself going back over it, trying to build up color, even on my fair skin. It does not have great staying power.
All in all, I think I will save my money and splurge on the Benefit cheek tint next time.

I have this blush in the color Rose and it imparts a natural, slightly flushed color to my cheeks. It's buildable if you want more color, however, I like a sheer, glowy tint. It's very easy to blend, unlike a lot of other gel or liquid blushes that I've worked with in the past. It stays on for a long time too, better than any of the creme or powder blushes. It's still on my face after a long day at work. I wish SK made this in a bronzer, as the older I get the more I hate using any kind of powder product on my face. I like the sheer, dewey look of gels/cremes much better as they don't settle into fine lines, not that I have many luckily. I find this tint extremely cheap considering how long the product lasts me. A very little goes a very long way. Great product!

I usually wear powder blush, but wanted to try a gel/stain blush. I have this in peony and the color looks natural on my tan Indian skin. I have oily skin, so I pat and blend this into my skin, then add a powder on top. Powder helps tones down any unwanted brightness, and helps it last a little longer. If I'm in a hurry, I'll use another blush instead, it's easy to go overboard with this.
Inexpensive-a lot of product for the price
A quarter pump for both cheeks
Doesn't irritate skin
It fades unevenly
Can look splotchy if I apply in a hurry
Would prefer tube packaging
Edit: Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge is much more long lasting and convenient to use. Once I bought that, I threw this out. I knew I'd never use this up.

I use this everyday. It's awesome....there are three colors but I think Peony would be the best one for anyone that's not sure what color would look best on their skin tone. Peony is universally flattering on anyone...it looks very bright in its container which scared me at first but don't worry! Even when you first apply it, it will go on kinda bright but wait a minute and it will fade into the most pretty natural color! And talk about saving money! This stuff will last you forever!.... you only need ONE pump of product for BOTH cheeks...crazy! So for anyone that thinks the 12 bucks is too expensive...how long it will last you totally more than justifies the price. Buy it and you will love it!

I'm surprised by the meh reviews -- I find myself reaching for this than any other gel blush I own. I bought it in Poppy, the bright coral that actually looks very sheer and natural if properly applied. It's comparable in pigmentation to Becca's Beach Tint and it smells similarly watermelon-y. My trick is to use less than a full pump for both cheeks -- a bead the size of a pine nut is plenty. You have about 10 seconds to blend it in which is more than most gel blushes give you. The finish is a little bit shimmery but mostly just sheer, pinchable color. Among the best drugstore blushes I've tried, certainly.
$9.99 for a .57 fluid ounce pump bottle at Target.

I wasn't sure about this because the packaging makes it look VERY bright. I bought it in "Peony". I have been trying to find a cream or liquid blush for the winter that won't look dry on my skin.
But so far I really like it. It looks a bit bright and overpowering when you first apply it, but then settles to a nice, subtle glow of color after a few minutes.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Tan, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This is the worst product I've ever purchased besides the Yes to Tomatoes moisturizer. The smell is absolutely offending. I don't want it anywhere near my face! The packaging is nice & sleek but I'm not buying a product just because of its appearance. It's pretty pricey for a drugstore item too. I hate it!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Warm Hair: Red, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Hazel
I've been using cream and gel blushes for quite a while as I feel the finish is much more natural than powder ones. When I saw this at target I figured I'd give it a shot for ten bucks and bought it in peony. This is absolutely my favorite blush and I plan to go back and pick up the other colors. Every time I wear it I get complimented on my skin and told I look well rested,etc. The color payoff is great and it blends easily. I've found the trick is to use the smallest amount possible and then build if necessary. I have ivory skin and use way less than a pea sized amount. From reading the other reviews I can understand why other people have had bad results by using a full pump of this. If it does come out a little too intense, I just dot a little watered down foundation over the top for a 'lit from within' look. Overall, it's a great blush and will probably last me forever.

I liked this product well enough when I first tried it but only recently had I realized just how awesome it really is. First, let me discuss the thing I can't stand about it - the pump. It's difficult to control how much comes out and if you are not careful, you will pump out too much product. It's not quite as "sheer" as the name indicates (personally, I only need a tiny, pea-sized drop) so this amounts to quite a bit of product waste. That's basically it as far as negative points go. I'm a big fan of creme blushes and this was my first venture into liquid blush. I do think it requires a bit of makeup knowledge (although some makeup newbies seem to have luck with this anyway). I apply this right after my tinted moisturizer (using the same SK blender sponge I used to apply TM) and I get a very even, airbrushed look (and well-blended due to the residual TM remaining in the sponge). I set with a loose powder and I get a natural, youthful glow. If you use a Beauty Blender or the blue, SK sponge, I highly recommend trying this out. The price seems quite steep for drugstore but you do get a lot of product for $10. I just wish they had more colors.

I thought I liked this blush but..... NEVER-MIND!!! This was soooo not worth $10... ( or even $1) It at first looks good but then you go to do the other cheek and the color is COMPLETELY gone... so then you put more on until you look like clown but just another minute later there is NO color at all. I don't know if this has something do with my oilly skin... but this product really sucks! :(
