Bought this in Faux Pas. Pretty packaging, decent price, but broke me out on my cheeks after 1 day of use. Looks like I'm sticking with Clinique for the time being!

I have the Indecent Proposal (kind of deep, brownish plum a bit along the lines of NARS Sin, but less shimmery) and I actually use it as a contour. I have always found that bronzers and the majority of brown contour powders tend to look like what they are: browny orange bronzer that is obviously powder applied on my skin rather than really giving the illusion that I have great cheekbones.
This works a lot better because it basically looks like the natural colour of my skin in shadow. The lady at the counter applied this on one cheek at my suggestion and then a bare minerals bronzer on the other cheek, even she was convinced that this looked much more natural on my skin tone. So if you've struggled with finding a good contour this might be the ticket (for reference I'm about an NC20 with slight olive tones).
It has shimmer in the pan, but not much applied. I think it would be a nice 'natural flush' blush on skin tones darker than mine, if I wear this as a blush it looks a bit too feverish on me. I agree with another review, this works best if you tap it on, and build it up that way, otherwise it can be a little hard to even out. You could build it up to pan colour, and it is pretty pigmented even applied lightly.
Mine came with a brush (which is okay, but sheds a bit) in the black rubberised packaging, from what I can gather they've dumped the brush. I would repurchase, especially as it's basically being sold at what are drugstore prices here.

This is just so smooth and pretty. A tiny bit goes a long way as it's very pigmented. Very fine, smooth and creamy in texture. Lovely blush, shall be buying again.

I bought the shade 'The One' and its very nice! It looks very pretty, natural, is silky smooth, blends beautifully on my face and it stays on. I like the compact, and a tiny bit goes a long way, i think it will last a long time so its worth the money. I like this blush, the best one i've come across in a long time.

I love this blush. I have it in the aphrodisiac. I have hennaed hair that looks auburn and this is the perfect blush to go with my hair and my fair freckled skin and hazel-green eyes. It's the perfect peach coral with a bit of orange in it. I also love how easily it applies and how it doesn't oxidize on me. The color still looks great at the end of the day.

I got this in The Tease because it was exactly the color i was looking for and couldnt find. I do own quite a few blushes, even mac ones, but I think these ones from the ready line are superior. They go on like a dream, it looks like your face blushes like that, its very natural and pretty. Its not too powdery so you wont get it everywhere and because its such a buttery formula it blends effortlessly, in fact most days I dont feel like I need to blend it. Its also thr only blush that lasts me all day, 15h on oily skin and its still there just a little faded. I will pick up more of them as soon as i can!

An ok blush.
Faux Pas is a cool, bright pink that would work on may skintones, form very pale to darker. The Aphrodisiac is peachy with shimmer that may or may not work on aging skin.
I like the concept of pressed mineral blushes, but they do get that hard shiny surface that you have to scrape off. That part I don't like.
Very pigmented, I only need a tap to get enough color, which also make it harder for me to apply evenly.
Expensive here in Sweden...

I bought a 3 pack of these and I opened them and quickly loaded a brush and popped these on my cheeks. 3 hours later I looked aghast at myself. Every line and pore was visible in bright chalky colored relief!! Ready to send these back, I had a revelation. Maybe these blushes were supposed to be applied like the READY foundation.
Next day I tapped my dome headed sigma brush 2 times in the blush and just applied a little at a time instead at blitzkrieg pace. That was the ticket. A light flush that was built a little at a time that didn't migrate into crevices. Sheer beauty.
My 3 pack from QVC included a warm peach, a peachy pink and a scary fuschia which is actually a sheerish pink. This kit could have included a blush brush to make it over the top but overall good. Kit also included a stupid makeup bag, like who needs another makeup bag? At my age I probably have 20 new ones laying around. A brush--now that would have been useful, I'm talking to you QVC and BE.

I was recommended this by one of the sa at Ulta. I was all buying new makeup due to sensitive eyes so she recommended this line. It didn't make my eyes any better or worse but I love it! I bought it in the color The One. It's kind of a pink, reddish with a little warmth to it. Applies very nice and stays on. Makes kind of a mess on my vanity but I will put up with that. I will repurchase.

I absolutely love this blush. The color that i get is the 'french kiss' as i want to have a more radiant look on my quite yellowish pale skin. Feel fantastic and light on skin. The color is absolutely what i am looking for. The reason i take one point out of five is that i never really use the brush provided as i prefer a bigger and handier one like the brush to apply mineral foundation powder.
