This has great pigmentation and looks lovely on the skin but nothing that would be a must have as you can find a lot cheap and way better blushes in drugstore like for eg, Sleek, or nyx

This is my very favourite blush, and I have several different brands ranging from high-end to drugstore. It looks garish in the pan, but on my NW15 skin is the perfect shade. I have to be careful not to apply too much, because it seems to build in intensity over a couple of hours.

It stays on my skin through an entire work day (usually applied over moisturizer, foundation or tinted moisturizer) and feels silky going on. I use a soft blush brush made by Quo to apply it, there's no powder kicking up in the pan and it goes precisely where I want it to, unlike a couple of other blushes I own (looking at you, MAC Pink Swoon and Annabelle Rosebud).

It's pricey but well worth it to me, and has lasted several years with almost daily use.

A friend gave this to me because it was too pink for her. She has yellow undertones and it just didn't work. However, it is GORGEOUS on my fair, pinkish skin. It is shockingly bright in the package and right when you put it on, but you just have to blend well. It seems to sink into my skin pretty well. Don't let the bright color scare you off, it's a lovely color once applied.

This is probably my favorite blush of all time. In the pan, it shows up as a matte cool, bright, clear pink but it is supposed to change depending on your pH level. I think this is just marketing crap, but I do believe it will show up differently based on your skin tone, as all blushes do. On me it shows up as a mid-tone rosy flush that is lovely, but it will look awesome on everyone. The formula is lovely as well. It is smooth, silky, and so easy to blend on the skin. The other plus is that it is crazy pigmented but you can control it easily because of its blendability. The only qualm I have is that the powder is a teeny bit too soft so it has a tendency to crumble a little. But it is so amazing, I don't even care. I love it, you will too. I recommend it to everyone.

I have both self adjusting blushes and love them both. The reason I will not repurchase it the price. I feel like blush is something you can get from any brand at a much cheaper cost. I'm planning on trying some Essence blushes after I run out of these.

Pros
Both look great on me
Product lasts a long time (I'm going on 3 years now and they still work great)
Colour stays all day and blends well

Cons
Both compacts BROKE within a few weeks of buying (the hinge part snapped on both)
It takes time to learn the right amount to put on (VERY easy to use too much)

So when I first purchased this blush, it was in the coral shade and it wasn't my favourite. As much as the lady at the make-up counter insisted that coral was more my colour, it turned out to look like more of a brick red on my very fair skin (which has very pinky undertones).

So I handed that shade off to my olive-skinned-bff and went back in pursuit of the blush that I coveted originally- the vibrant pink shade.

Pros:
- Unlike it's coral counterpart (which featured a very prominent shimmer), the pink shade has a matte finish.
- Although the pink looks shocking in the pan, it is entirely natural and buildable, when applied with a light hand.
- Although the blush is pricy, a little bit of product can go a long way.
- Excellent staying power.

Cons:
- The pan. In both the coral and pink version I got, the centre began to crumble for reasons unknown. The coral in particular became quite messy, although I was always sure to close the compact gently. Curious. Very curious.



All in all, I loved this blush. It was the perfect sheer, matte pink for me. Although I wasn't a huge fan of the coral for myself, it does look lovely on my friend who has undertones are less pink (and she doesn't mind the shimmer).

This blush is highly pigmented. I just need one dab and swoosh when putting it on both my cheeks. But the color then fades or brightens, according to your skin tone. I think this works great. It really does compliment my skin tone and gives me a cute flush. Not natural but not outrageous, I think the color on me in just right. Lasts maybe half the day.

I'm doing a massive blush purge and I own many blushes from all different brands and price points that I just want to throw out. I was interested in the concept of "custom color" and want just one pink. I do know Dior makes a similar blush but decided not to get the Dior because of the ingredients and also the fact that the Stila one is half as much in price. I swatched the tester and was shocked by how cool and pale it was. I got it anyway and I'm not disappointed. I love it. It actually turns into more of a soft pink-red coral on me and it looks very natural on my skin tone. I found that this blush is very pigmented yet still natural looking. It contains no shimmer or sparkles which I'm happy with that since I'm oily. I experienced no rashes or skin irritation with this blush. The price is affordable at $20. Overall, very happy with this product and I'm getting going back for the peach one too!

By looking at the neon pink, clown-realness shade of doom in the pan, I thought this blush was going to be a horrible garish pink color that didn't flatter anyone. I found it to go on very light and natural looking, and I LOVE the way it gives me the slightest tinge of color on my very pale skin. Apply it very lightly and then build more as you need, you'll have a beautiful healthy glow!

Perfect! The colour is a really pretty pink when applied, and much less full-on than it looks in the pan. It's easy to blend, can be worn quite sheer, or built-up, and stays on all day without needing to be touched up. The compact is really neat, with a good quality mirror, and the product last forever. Brilliant.
