This colour is absolutely gorgeous, in the pan and on my NC25-30 warm with yellow undertoned skin. It looks like a shimmery berry-red in the pan, but on my skin it's a sheer blue-toned berry rose that's very flattering and not at all shimmery once blended. I never thought blue-toned red blush would suit me because blue-toned red l/s doesn't look right on me. However, having discovered that it works, I have then discovered that I can wear blue-toned red lippie to complement it! The blush is superb quality and very well pigmented, so you only need the lightest dab for both cheeks, however, for £16 I would have hoped for the packaging to be more glam.

This is my current fave blush along with Cheekypop Sunset and Shiseido Accentuating Stick in Rouge Flush!
Texture is finer than Cheekypop, so it lasts on my skin longer. Tho I had a hard time opening it at first but nonetheless, I'll give this product 5 lippies =)
Works BEST with MAC 187 or 188 brush ;)

This is an amazing blush - but you have to apply it correctly. Use a giant brush and tap into the color - then lightly sweep upwards on apples of cheeks = perfect! This is a true red with a gold sheen to it. Not a color for everyone, but for those that favor a flushed look, it is heaven!

This is one of the most beautiful blushes that i've ever used. It's a bright brick red color with teeny tiny gold mico glitter in it. It makes your cheeks glow! It sinks into your skin - doesn't sit on top like other powder blushes.
I wish that shu blushes were easier to find - they really are the best.

i guess when i bought this i was really hungry for bold colors and the deeper the better. now, after 3 months i have very very gently touched the pan with my pony blush brush exactly 3 times. it's truly a hit-miss i cant afford to spend the time on every morning unless i want to look like a clown and i m not even that fair. hah! and i thought MAc's fleur power was too pigmented, this takes the cake! anyone has any suggestions on how to make use of the rest of my pan of glow-on i need help!

Without a doubt, the most beautiful blush in my (quite extensive) collection. While this is rather hard to apply, the effort is worth it. It looks good on pale and dark women, and the natural-but-glamorous flush is unbeatable! This and P Wine 25 are my favorite Shu blushes.

Oh how i wish this blush worked for me! Simply gorgeous in the pan and on the back of my hand when testing, on my cheeks (with their pinky/red undertones) it went on a bright sparkly reddish pink which made me look blotchy all over my face and highlighted all my skin flaws. Such a shame, as I love bright blush, and this is great quality. :'( I have no doubt this will be gorgeous on thie right skintone tho. I will continue to play with it in the hope I will discover a miracle way to make this work for me, but may just have to consign it to my swap list.

A gorgeous, gorgeous blush. FYI I have MAC NC45 yellow-toned, oily Asian Indian skin and this blush is just supercalifragilisticexpialliduciously wonderful. It's really highly-pigmented so a weeny bit of colour is all you need. Makes me, born slacker, look like I've got the gorgeous, just-finished-a-jog look.
Edit: I find myself reaching less for this nowadays, it can be quite hard to work with. Plus, I'm currently obessessing over all things Bobbi Brown.

This is a beautiful crimson with a fine gold shimmer that shows up subtly on skin. However, I have to labor to make this one work on my very pale skin. I barely touch the pan, faintly touch my cheeks and voila, it's still too much. Once I blend and blend, I do get cool flushed cheeks that are flattering and pretty. But, I suspect that with all the blending this involves, I am rubbing off a great deal of color, ending up with virtually my own naturally rosy cheeks. I think those with natural pink in their skin, especially cool-neutral PPPs like myself, will find this shade too feverishly intense (think Nars Crazed). Still, the quality is superb and should I ever lose the bloom in my apples, I would seek this out in a heartbeat.

I love this blush! Huge thanks to my dear friend, Corrine, for sending this blush to me! I am an MMM, Stila D/E, Armani LSF #6 with strong yellow undertones and this blush gives me the most beautiful flush ever! I apply it lightly with a fan brush(as it is very pigmented) and it just brightens up my whole face with this lovely hint of red tint. This is definitely a "warm" in from the cold flush for me. In the pan, it looks like a scary intense red frosted with warm shimmer, but it's sooo amazing on my skin! HG! I cannot gush enough about this blush!!!

I would have thought this blush too red for my fair/ruddy skin. But thanks to all your reviews, I bought it.
It is just as beautiful as everyone described. Definitely creates that in from the cold flush. Unfortunately, I dropped it on my bathroom floor and it smashed. But now I know Shu sells an $8 compact (with mirror) that can hold 2 blushes or 1 blush and 2 shadows. I will be using that from now on for my Shu blushes. They're too precious to lose. ;-)
Also wanted to let you all know the Shu 17 pony brush works very well with these deeply pigmented blushes. The MA showed me how to use; as another reviewer noted, you should press the side of the brush into the color gently, rather than swiping the pan.

This is my very first Shu Uemura blush which was CP'ed by a sweet MUA'er (thank you so much Chrissy!). Bought it due to all the great reviews and no doubt, it is every bit as beautiful as everyone says. It literally took my breath away when I saw it. It's *red* with gold shimmers in the pan but on the cheeks when applied with a soft hand, the pink in it is more noticeable. It gives a healthy, dewy finish- doesn't even look like I have powder blush on. Now I can't wait to get P Red 14 and P Pink 30!

I love this shade b/c it makes my medium toned skin appear to have such a natural flush. At first, I was a little intimidated by the intensity of the color that appeared in the case, but with Shu Uemura's 7.5EX Badger brush, a light touch goes a long way!

This is how I hoped NARS Orgasm would look on my yellow-undertoned Asian skin...a natural, dewy flushed look as if I had spent the better part of the week in between the sheets with a guy who could give the Energizer bunny a run for his money :P If you're light skinned & would like glowing skin, skip the NARS Orgasm & trot on to this baby!

I was intrigued by all of the positive reviews of the Shu Glow On blushes, and Red Pearl 19D is the first that I have tried. I really love this blush, it goes on as a very pretty flush, more red than pink (that may sound scary but it's beautiful). This is a strong color (very highly pigmented) that demands a very light hand. The first few times I applied it I was upset because i had bright red streaks on my cheeks. Then with practice I learned that a little goes a long way. My advice is to very lightly tap your blush brush against the blush, then gently blow excess powder off the brush, then apply. This is just such a gorgeous color, I can't wait to try more colors in this line.

This is my 2nd Shu Uemura glow on, it's highly pigmented and silky. I'm NC15/20 and this gives me a very pretty flush look. Good stuff!

This blush is the most beautiful sparkling crimson red. As a newcomer to Shu Uemura products, I wasn't sure how much I'd like the texture and quality of this blush, but after one application--I'm HOOKED! The bright hue is extremely pigmented, but when applied carefully with a full soft brush, the after-effects are amazing. It really and truly does look as though I'm glowing from within--not from my make-up! I can't wait to try more of this lauded artist's creations! =)

I bought this because of the reviews and because I've always been searching for a red blush that I can wear. Sometimes I see a picture in a magazine where the model has the PERFECT glowy red cherry flush that looks like it comes from within the skin. I've WANTED to achieve that forever with absolutely no luck. So this blush arrived and looked SO red in the pan that I was convinced my PPP complexion could never pull it off. I swiped the blush brush very, very lightly, applied, and there it was! It has enough shimmer to give that glowing look and makes me look like I've been out in the cold but with a true red rather than pink flush. It is surprisingly sheer if you use a light hand. HOLY GRAIL. I've never used anything even remotely like it or anywhere near as lovely.

With the holidays upon us I have been in a mood for cosmetics in the color red. I had read the good reviews for this color and I adore the other Shu Uemura blush colors I have so this seemed like a natural choice. This is a beautiful blush color. It looks sparkly in the pan but shows up fairly matte on my cheeks. Because I am fair it only takes the teensiest tiniest amount to give my cheeks that great just in from the outside flush. I have this color right now sitting side by side with Mac's Frankly Scarlett blush and the two colors look identical except for the shimmer from the Shu Uemura. With all the blush colors I have (too many to count)I am surprised at how natural a light red flush looks on my cheeks. I really believe this would be a natural looking color on any complexion.

If I could only own 1 blush in this world--- this would be it! It looks like a bright true red on the pan but when put on my NC 20-25 or SU 764 or 564 skin this looks like a glow from within. I am an LLL Asian. For more reference my other foundations are BB and LM Warm Ivory.
