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.

Working in a cosmetic retail enviornment, I have tried all the ready blushes. They are really nice! They go on smooth, blend easily, look natural and have very little fallout.
Right now, I just purchased "The Natural High" which is from their new spring line and comes in a sleek teal/blue shiny, metallic looking compact instead of the black rubbery one. It's my favorite blush right now. The Natural High is nearly an exact dupe for Nars Orgasm (it's a smidge more peachy in color and does have the gold flecks in it), but at a fraction of the cost. There is also a ton of product in the ready blush, which is going to last a long time. I will also say this, the packaging is very sturdy and of quality. The blush is also itself, well solidified (not soft and does not crack or break in the compact easily, even if dropped- which I have done before).
I prefer the Ready Blush over the loose ones anyway. The loose ones can be very messy, and you have to be careful of the application and use a tiny bit and build up to the desired color. For some women, it's a guessing game. With the ready blush, just swipe your brush over the compact, tap out excess particles and apply. Fairly consistant every time. :)

I have this blush in The Aphrodisiac and I have to agree with the reviewer below that is almost an exact dupe of NARS Orgasm blush but without all the shimmer! Lasted most of the day and feels nice on my skin. Definitely more than I would typically pay for a blush, but I have fallen in love with it!

I bought this in Faux Pas. Which is a kind of strange name, why would someone name a blush 'Do Not'? Whatever. I suppose I'll have to get over the weird names people give blushes. Moving on. I really love it. Though it's not as creamy as other blushes I have, it's nice because it doesn't have any fallout, but it is also fairly pigmented. It stays all day on my oily skin, and I wear it over my Tarte Clean Slate face primer. I usually don't wear foundation. It's a cool toned pink blush that looks really pretty on my nc25 skin. I would buy again, if I ever run out of the one I have, but it lasts a long time, so it'll take a while.

I've only tried one color so far but I'm in love with it. It can be used to give you a natural look or when going out. There's lots of colors to choose from as well. I also have sensitive and acne prone skin, this blush wasn't a problem for either.

The packaging is very nice & sleek; the cover is a rubbery material which also comes w/ a mirror and mini brush. The blush itself is pigmented & very easy to blend. I prefer this over their other loose version of this blush.
I do wish it came in more colors though. Also, the blush is kind of hard, it's not creamy at all!

I got this is The One...described as a nude pink. I thought it would be great for those days I don't want to look totally pasty, but don't want to appear to have blush on either. I have medium beige skin and my natural flush is sort of a rosey nude. Well this color did absolutely nothing for me. Bobbi Brown's Blushed Rose in creme, or Dessert Rose in powder blush is much better and in the same color zone as this. This just has a little too much of a subtle purple undertone to it I think...and its throwing it off for my skin tone. I also didn't like the formula all that much. It doesn't go on as smoothly as I'd like, and the color was gone by mid-afternoon. The packaging was also annoying as its that soft cushy like material that shows every fingerprint and is a dust magnet making it look old almost immediately. Overall I was disappointed in this one.

I was so excited when BM released their READY blushes. My introduction to such came when I got a chance to try their pressed blush in the shade The Natural High (came in a QVC TSV). It's pinky-peach in tone with a slight golden undertone to it. And, it has a bit of shimmer to it as well.
The blush goes on pretty sheer with one swipe. To get a lot of color payoff, you really have to layer it on. Also, it's wearability is pretty okay. And, unlike the BM foundations (that don't have expiration dates), this product does actually come with an expiration date of its own.
It does come in a very sleek black compact. The downfall to such packaging is that its easy to get smudges on it. And, inside of the compact, a little application brush is included (for any on-the-go touchups).
The READY products do contain lots of added herbal extracts to them. This does add to the addition of scents to such products. This is the only con that I have found with a variety of READY products purchased thus far. And, with this product, YES it does have a slight herbal scent to it. The scent is not overwhelming. But, it is there nonetheless.

I have the Ready blush in shade "The French Kiss" which is a strong pink. The blush is quite large and comes in a large square compact with a decent little brush and mirror. The blush itself is meant to have skincare properties although I can't remember exactly what the SA said it had. The color pigment is very strong, and stays really well. Although it is very pricey, it's a good quality blush and you need to be quite light handed at the risk of looking like a doll! Although it is a bit more than say a mac blush, I like the idea that it's the same pigmentation as mac (if not a little stronger) but is good for my skin rather than chemicaly and personally I'd prefer to pay the extra and have something better for my skin :)

I have this in The Aphrodisiac, which is practically a dupe for NARS blush in Orgasm, except without the excess shimmer. Very nice pigmentation, lasts for quite a while. Expensive, but worth a good splurge.
