This blush is a peachy coral-y shade with shimmer that isn't exactly a shimmer, but more of a glow. The finish this blush has is completely beautiful, minimizes pores, and also acts as a highlighter as well. It works very well on my NC15-20 skin, but I think it would work on most skin tones since it's so flattering, and can be applied sheerly with a light hand, or very bold with a heavy hand. This really does fit the claim of a "dollskin finish". I just can't even express how much I LOVE this blush.
I bought this blush on a whim when Sephora was discontinuing Tarina from their stores, and got this product so cheap - think drugstore prices, but usually retails at $25 which isn't super expensive, but definitely isn't cheap either. I've had this product about 4 months, and use it at least 3 times a week - lightly - and I haven't even really made a dent since you only need a DAB of product, tapped off. A swipe for fair skin would be a very cold cheek imo. I think this blush is worth every penny, and is a perfect glowy spring and summer shade.

This is a pale, shimmery, pinky-peach blush that can either look like a subtle flush of color, or be built up into something a little more dramatic looking. It is very finely milled, so a little goes a long way; in fact, all I really need is to lightly touch my brush to the pan and it's enough for one cheek.
It does have a sheen to it that almost makes your skin look dewy, but it's very subtle--as someone who hates sparkles/glitter on my face, I really appreciate this about the product. However, if you're worried about highlighting wrinkles or fine lines then you may want to test this out before buying it.
It blends in nicely and isn't streaky or chalky at all. The staying power is pretty good, and if you use a primer underneath it should last for hours. The packaging is okay; my compact is kind of hard to open sometimes which is not so great if you want to keep your nail polish intact.

This product was originally $25 but I got it on sale. Sephora will no longer be carrying Tarina Tarantino so a ton of her stuff was put on sale. I read lots of reviews about the blushes from temptalia and oh my gosh.
IT'S AMAZING. Finely milled, so pigmented and lasts for a good 8 hours on my skin. I have terribly acne prone skin and this doesn't bother it one bit.
Feather is the most natural blush I've ever seen on my skin. For reference I'm in 118 in MUFE HD & 30 in MUFE Matte Velet (warm undertones). There is shimmer but it's not gritty and awful. It comes off as a lovely warm sheen that is unbelievably natural. I am so glad I picked up these blushes (I bought 4) because they became out of stock permanently the next day after I had placed my order.
I'm positive I'll take years to hit pan but I know without a doubt I'd repurchase this whenever I run out.
A warning with the packaging - for some reason, a few of my blushes from this line are so difficult to open! I found that I had to wedge a small flat top to open it like a crow bar or a lever. It sounds annoying I know but after a few times of opening and closing it in that fashion, I managed to weaken the clasp so I can open it normally with no problems.
