Perfect for a wash of durable colour that looks natural in glaring outdoor light - I don't wear makeup as a rule but sometime I like a little colour on the cheek, a little polish, and this subtle flush is just enough/ not too much and (bonus!) resists smudging or streaking. Works great with waterproof mascara in cold climes where eyes tend to tear up. Also works as a layering base to "anchor" a subtle powder blush that would otherwise fade or disappear. Nice to have for its versatility.

This is good......not 100% what I was looking for but I do like it...don't think I would buy it again as I prefer Pixi. I find it dries to fast and the colour is hard to blend but the colour is GORGEOUS on my NC 25 skin and it does last all day. I don't find it gives any dewiness or sheen to the skin at all though...which is why I have turned to cream blush. Overall, good product, will use to the last drop, but not a must-have for me.

It looks amazing AND best best of all, it lasts all day long. Other blushes only last around 30 minutes on my combo skin.

I'm giving this 5 lippies because if I master the appllication of this, it'll be great!
I'm trying to not use powder anything because creams are suppose to be less aging.
I agree with previous reviewers that you only need to use the tiniest amount and blend quicky to get a very natural looking blush.

I wanted to love this foundation - good color match and a FLAWLESS look (at first). Minerals that hid my large pores! After just a few hours, however, my face turned into a fuzzy (the color separates on the skin - easily noticeable with a close-up), cakey, itchy, grease pit! My skin has never looked so greasy and the itchy feeling drove me insane - if I scratched the inch, I would smear the make-up because it never sets. Disgusting! It will make most people look shiny/greasy with the bismuth. May have broken my skin out as well. Also, it had a weird scent that felt "stuck" in my nose all day. Great make-up if you're only going to wear it for an hour.

I ordered this blush along with the Fantastic Finish foundation. While I love the foundation, I do not love this blush. It is far too light for even my fair skin tone. It does blend very well, lasts all day and I like the spf factor. I have to apply my powder blush over top to get any colour so it is kind of pointless. Would be a great blush for someone even more fair than me.

This is a neutral light-medium pinky hue that emulates a natural flush both in its color, opacity/sheerness and texture.
A tiny drop the size of a pinhead is what is needed for each cheek. It is designed to go over the Illuminare foundation, which I really love too.
My go-to line for long lasting, natural/professional makeup.

i really like the color of this blush. it is a very cool-toned pink that looks fresh and natural. i like that it has sunscreen and a little goes a long way. however, i'm new to cream blushes (i was a powder blush girl) and even though i've been using this for about a month, i still think powder blush is just easier. i have the "perfect color" formula which isn't as matte or long-lasting as the "ultimate" formula supposedly, but i haven't tried the other so i don't know. this blush seems to last all day and it doesn't make me break out. sometimes the formula seems to "separate" into paste and liquid, but i just squeeze and mash the tube around closed, and it mixes it up again. oil- free and easy to blend.

Love it love it love it!!! This is the only blusher that I had ever found that actually lasted me the whole day cos the quantity of oil my face produces a day, ohmigawd, you can use it to fry up an entire place of noodles! Didn't clog my pores, didn't cause me to break out, a tiny dot is enough for both cheeks and the color totally matches the flush I get when I go to the gym. I actually bought the trial pack and that one single pillow pack lasted me an entire month. Got the same reviews from the colleagues that I passed the other 4 sample packs too. Will be purchasing the full tube very soon.

Love this blush! I use this along with Illuminare's Fantastic Finish foundation. A very small amount is all you need, and it lasts all day! Gives a beautiful flush to cheeks. A beautiful pink color and blends so easily. My ultra sensitive skin loves this. I apply with fingers, and then blend in with Illuminare's fast application pad. Illuminare has Excellent customer service, and really great products!

Great color but I wasn't happy with how it blended over the foundation and it didn't seem to last for more than a few hours, even when I powdered. This was the Ultimate all day blush formula so I expected it to last longer. Love the tube packaging tho!

My holy grail blush! A tiny dot is all you need, and the color and glow it gives is so true to my own natural blush. Best of all it lasts all day. I use this with Fantastic finish foundation and have received so many compliments. It looks so natural and just gives a healthy glow. I have also mixed this with the florentine fair blush for a little deeper color. Blends together beautifully.

Porcelain is very neutral light pink; it looks totally natural on my PPP skin w/matching foundation. Once you get the hang of making little dots on the apples of your cheeks and up cheekbone and quickly blending, you will love this stuff. Tube is great for travel and sanitary. Definitely not a "blushy" look, but will balance your face so you look perfectly natural w/no telltale blush lines or fadeout.

Well, I tried these blushes in porcelain, alabaster and fair because of all of the great reviews and I thought they didn't look natural at all. It gave me a very thick, matte looking blush and it was difficult to spread. I much prefer tarte blushing bride for a sheer blush for fair skin.

Great blush. This is a pinky nude shade. perfect for warm or cool tones. Very nuetral. This is supposed to "These creamy oil-free blushes are made to go over our foundations for a touch of color. Mimicking the natural color of a real human blush, each color was developed to perfectly complement each foundation shade. They contain the same sun protecting ingredients and are easy to blend, will not streak, fade or change color all day long." Spf 21 and .5 oz retails for $20. Comes in a squeeze tube. Lasts all day and no breakouts.

Love thsi color is light for winter but beautiful for day wear in the summer, but I think as I tan voer the summer it will not be dark enough.

Very pretty nuetral to warm pinkish flush color. I love Illuminare's blushes. My favorite is amalfi alabaster because it is a more cool toned and paler shade of pink that works better for me. I do, however, wear their foundation in the portofinio porcelain becasue the alabaster foundation was way to light for me. Go figure. This blush does not break out my super sensitive skin and it applies easily. I use a taklon blush brush or my fingers and apply it to the apples of my cheeks for a really natural sweet look. This blush also provides sunscreen. What more could a girl ask for in a blush? I will and have repurchased this blush (my HG), but in the amalfi alabaster shade instead.

This is a great blush for my fair skin. It brightens up my face, lasts until I wash it off, and blends well. You only have to use a tiny bit; if you overdo it at first, you might try using a foundation sponge to absorb a little of the extra product. I've recently taken to applying this blush and then using Benefit's Dandelion as a highlighting powder to add hints of color in spots other than my cheeks. The effect is a soft, glowy look.

This is a great color for me. I thought it might be too pale but it looks incredibly natural (but better than the natural me.) Blends in so well, too.

I purchased samples of Portofino Porcelain and Florentine Fair from WTF?. I wanted a blush that would last all day without touch ups and was easy to apply. Though I had been warned not to use too much I did not realize that a dab was too much! After a little practice I have mastered the technique of blending. I wear Jane Iredale pressed powder foundation in Bisque and this blush looks so natural with it. I put on my foundation, blend the PP blush and then I add a light layer of foundation and finish with MAC Tenderling (which is amazingly close in color to PP blush). My blush lasts all day long and never looks anything but natural.
