I love this product. I use it on a regular basis. It blends easily, leaving a dewy, fresh look. It's great as part of a "no makeup-make up" look (see lisaeldridge.com for the details on this look). Simply beautiful. In the beginning you may feel that you've applied too much but keep blending. You can use your fingers or a brush designed for creme blush, which is a lot like a foundation brush yet smaller (see lauramercier.com for an example) but frankly I prefer my fingers. Give it a try!

I actually prefer this as a lipgloss! I have repurchased this many times and always have a back-up in my drawer. This is the perfect pinky/peach lipgloss and can be worn alone or over other lipsticks.

I really love what LMdB did with the formula on these! They're absolutely lovely. They give a youthful sheen to the cheeks and wear very well, always taking me through the work day without a problem. No sliding to speak of. They are quite comfortable and weightless on the lips, though because Poppy is a lighter color, I do get some settling in the lip lines and it emphasizes any dryness.
The creme fresh tints are definitely VERY creamy, as other reviews have mentioned, and nicely blendable. I've tried it with both fingers and a synthetic foundation brush, and had no problem with either method. I love that it doesn't "set" too quickly, like some other cream blushes, and look patchy on the cheeks.
Colorwise, Poppy is not nearly as bright or intense as it looks in the pot. Once you break the surface, you'll notice that the cream is NOT bright coral, but rather a light pinky-coral.
On the cheeks, this translates to a subtle flush (I'm NC20ish right now) that should be very flattering for both cool and warm undertones because of the coral tint. On my lips, it's a different story. It definitely mutes the color of my lips, and turns into a light, cool pink. Not quite the most flattering shade on me, but I'm sure other ladies will love it.
Price wise, it's not the worst, but it is a money-sucker esp. since I always go through cream blushes faster than powder ones. This will set you back $28 USD for .17 oz, compared to Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge, which is $24 USD for .13 oz.

I am so thankful that I came across this cream blush. It's the best I have used and I am so satisfied that I have stopped looking!! The word "creme fresh tint" is so perfect in describing the texture of the blush. It's so soft like a cream (think fresh creme on a cake!). It blends effortlessly and because it's so creamy and blendable, it definitely is a 'multi-task' item which you can use on the lips as well. It leaves a gorgeous sheen on your cheeks too. I've tried other lip/cheek products like the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge but the texture is so hard to blend and doesn't work for both the lips and the cheeks. It only worked for one or the other (lip or cheek), not both. But LMdB Creme Fresh Tint works perfectly for lips and cheek!! I love this color too, Poppy is just a pretty pink color. Very wearable and despite its price, I would repurchase over and over again!! Highly recommended.

Oh this blush is heaven. For the days when my beloved wines and berries seem too heavy, this is the love-of-my-life perfect cool-pink-slight-coral shade.
Color: In the pot it looks brighter and warmer than it wears against my skin (YSL fndtn #08 Amber in summer, LM mineral fndtn in Rich Vanilla in fall, Real Sand blended in to lighten up a bit in dead of winter). This shade morphs against whatever I'm wearing, against my white robe, it wears on the cool, slightly pink-shimmery side. Against a coral pink, it warms up. Please check out The Beauty Look Book as well as The Beauty Scribbler for more accurate shade swatches. What I love about this is that, while there is a slight shimmer, it is so micro-fine, that it just lends itself to a dewy, glistened effect. Such a very healthy shade of pink with just enough peach to ground it and allow it to blend it with my skin.
Formula: I was wary because this has a silicone in it, but only one of the ingredients registers as a silicone (no sneaky hidden silicones either), so unlike other cream blushes, this is not laden with every variance of silicone made thus far. It is like the texture of a buttery, homemade verysion of frosting, with slightly less sugar and slightly more butter. It feels like a balmy whipped cream, blends incredibly well, the tiniest touch is needed and has yet (fingers crossed) to cause any breakouts. This blush really makes me question my other (pink/coral) blush purchases. NARS Orgasm did not work on me, but this would have been the shade i would have hoped it would have been: slightly less bright and yellow-gold shimmery, just the perfect pinky-peach with dewy glisten. If you're someone who typically stays away from anything bright because it often wears too cutesy on you, if wines/deep berries fit your overall look more, but you've always wanted the soft yet slightly brightened effect of a pink-coral, I highly recommend this.
Most corals make my ruddy cheeks appear even ruddier and heat up my complexion too much, but plums and wines have a cooling, deepening effect. This is the one shade of "coral" I've found (outside of Tarte's Tipsy) that wears cool/neutral enough to not over-heat my complexion. Yes, I bought a back-up, this is love.
