I think the color is more if a peach than pink or brown. It had a tiny little bit of a shimmer and is definitely suited for a light skinned girl. (I'm white and I love it but my Mexican pall put some on and it looked like ass) nice smell and a cute package. I use it in the winter but you could definitely layer it with bronzer in the summer.

Overall this is a good product. The packaging is cute, although the brush is garbage (as with most brushes that come with a product). I do like the smell, while I can't say that it attracts the opposite sex per se, it is probably intended to make the wearer feel sexier....which in turn could attract the opposite sex I guess. The color is nice, it's like a nice after sex flush, with a bit of shimmer. The lasting power is only so-so only an oily face like mine, but it doesn't seem to cause acne, which is a huge plus in my book.

Love this blush! Perfect shade to make you healthy and pink without being overly "pink". It is a bit shimmery but it looks really nice because it gives a nice highlight and looks a little glowy. Be careful though, use a light hand. I found that if it's overdone, it almost looks packed on. Not very pretty. Some people might find it a little too light but might like it as a highlighter. I personally love this blush, I bought it on a whim and it turns out to be something I'd definitely buy again. The packaging is adorable, but honestly it ends up being more bulky than it needs to be. If you're looking for a drugstore brand that looks nice and subtle, gives you a healthy looking glow, definitely give this one a try. It's worth the $11.
Edit: I forgot to mention the scent. It smells really nice! It's not scented to the point where you can smell it all day or anything, but you get a nice little whiff of vanilla when you apply it. It's very light and nice. Pleasant :)

As a blush, I'm not a big fan of this particular product. However, as a highlighter, I think it's awesome! I'm between NC20 and NW25 and absolutely love how this looks to brighten and accentuate my cheekbones :)

I love the glowy peachy pink flush it leaves on my cheeks. The high heel in the center is a brighter pink. I just twirl everything together for a perfect spring cheek pastel color. It's great for fair skin. On darker skin tones it could work as well to highligh the tops of the apples of the cheek. While it is not shimmery it leaves a glowy satin finish.
I actually like the vanilla floral scent and don't find it to be strong at all. Overall, it's one of my new favorite blushes, and given how many blushes I own, it's saying alot.
Here are some shade comparisons:
It's lighter and pinker than Benefit Coralista.
It's lighter and more warm toned than MAC Well Dressed.
It's warmer and peachier than Benefit Dandelion.
It's pinker, not shimmery, and more pigmented than Hard Candy Honeymoon.
It's lighter, more peachy, and less pigmented than Chanel Rose Initiale

Ok, so I wanted to love this product because the packaging is just too cute. And I am not someone who is a sucker for packaging, but one would look so cool using this. It's a little red box encased in something that looks like fishnet stockings. It opens like a book with the blush being a little red high heeled shoe with a lighter peachy pink background. The back also opens like a book which holds the mirror and brush.
When you open it, the scent of vanilla hits you and it's quite yummy smelling. I think this is part of the "sexy" allure since, reportedly, vanilla smells make men horny. But wait! There's more! On the back of the packaging it says there is an "ancient aphrodisiac Horny Goatweed to enhance your sexy side." Seriously? Horny Goatweed? I was so curious that I actually Googled "Horny Goatweed" because I couldn't believe an aphrodisiac would have a name with "horny" in it - don't these things usually have some scientifc latin name no one has heard of? Well, guess what, it exists! Whatever the case, I don't know if I want "Goatweed" on my face no matter how horny it is.
Anyway, I'll get to the meat and potatoes of this...the blush. I was REALLY disappointed. I am an Asian NC35 who hates wasting money, hence, I hardly ever go out on a limb to try something new. MUA has been my holy grail makeup website because I can at least get an opinion about something. However, this is new and there were no reviews. I got this for a steal so decided to try it out and post a review. CVS is having a Physicians Formula 50% off sale on certain items, and since this is a new item, there was a $3 off coupon. So basically I got this for $3.62 with tax (usually $12). Definitely wasn't going to break the bank if I didn't like it. I don't know if I'm too dark (I would consider NC35 as a medium skintone), but this hardly showed up at all! It was like pure shimmer/sheen. So then I tried concentrating my brush a little more on the high heeled shoe, and I came away with just a leeeeeetle bit more color, but not enough to even consider this a blush. I would probably use this over blushes that are matte when I would like a little more shimmer to them (maybe a night out?).
So my final verdict is that if you are looking for shimmer, nice smell, and cute packaging - get it. If you are actually looking for a blush, don't get it.
Edit 2/19/13: Okay, so even though it has a nice vanilla smell, it is VERY strong. The blush brush I used now smells like vanilla and it makes every blush it touches smell like vanilla - although not as strong as the actual booster blush. The only way I got the smell off was by wiping the brush on a baby wipe (or cleaning it with a brush cleaner, I'm sure that would do). Kind of annoying since I don't always want to smell like vanilla when putting on blush.
