Thanks to some internet kindness, I managed to get this wonderful blush. When I first saw it, I was concerned about how red it was. Following the reviews here, I decided to use my Muji Half Moon brush to apply the blush, since it is highly pigmented. The effect is a gorgeous pinkish red, not dissimilar to me using Benetint and then layering Dandelion on top! Very nice! It also lasts well through the day without turning dark. Love it!

Gorgeous used with a light hand. Just in from the snow look. It's so pretty. Coffee and Cream is my HG blush though......

Applied with a *light* hand, this blush will give you 'just back from building a snowman* cheeks. Gives a beautiful, and fresh look to all skintones, but make sure you have a flat head brush and once, again, a light hand because this is some amazingly pigmented blush!!!! Awesome for a d/s brand...usually they end up chalky, not Milani COT, though!!! I found mine at Big Lots for under $1. =D

I only purchased this because I was looking for an inexpensive red blush. I didn't use the pink side. I agree that you have to be very careful because a little goes a long way. I am a medium caramel complexion girl and the color showed up on me A LOT. In fact I had to work to tone it down some.
Once I got it right, I LOVED it. I'd purchase it again though I probably wouldn't need to since a little goes a long way with this stuff. It was also only about 4 bucks online so it was worth it for me.

this blush is too much work trying to blend in the two shades. plus it's too shimmery for my taste.

Wow. Cherries on Top is a superpigmented blush. This is one product where you need to use a feather touch with your brush or else you'll look like a clown. But even with a light hand, it can look garish unless you blend A LOT. However, if you get the hang of it, it'll give you the most delightful, just-in-from-the-cold pink cheeks. I love this color and am so glad I stocked up.

If I'd known how much I was going to like this (and that it was discontinued), I would have picked up the other one that was on a clearance rack a couple of months back (I was lucky enough to pick up the last Mango Tango though!).
I'm a sucker for anything with cherries in the name, but I didn't think I could really wear a blush this red (I'm NC15 -20, red hair - does Bozo the Clown come to mind?). Well, guess what? I can wear a cherry red blush without hearing circus music in my head when I look in the mirror!
I really, really like this blush. Second only to my precious Mango Tango. A light touch is key, but it is surprisingly natural and wearable.

This is an extremely pigmented blush, even for Milani. One side is a deep rich cherry red and the other a much lighter pink. Both shades are shimmery. If i want to wear the red side, i have to use a skunk brush and build up the colour very, very slowly or i risk looking feverish. The pink side gives a very soft, almost glowy feel to any blush and makes a great highlighting shade with just a hint of colour. It's not the easiest blush to wear, but it does make me look delightfully rosy and complements my NW20, black hair & eyes complexion. Very long lasting and definitely a steal for the price. The only thing i hate is the compact, which is difficult to open and you have to be careful not to chip the blush with a fingernail. Still, i would repurchase, if only Milani was sold here!

I love this blush. As others have described, it's a nice cherry red. It's great that it's so pigmented, but I have to admit it's a little tricky to apply because of this fact. I generally have to use a skunk brush and a very light hand. I'm an NC20 with black hair, and it gives me a nice, rosy, snow-white look. I'm glad I got my hands on it before it was d/c.

Thanks to a lovely member, I have finally managed to try this (Milani is not available in Singapore). This is a split pan blush duo and consists of a cherry red and a light pink. There are slight shimmers in both shades. To be honest, I have not quite figured out how to work around with this blush.
When I used this the first time, I tried the cherry red shade and layered the light pink shade over to tone the redness - it was way too dramatic for my liking. I had also tried swiping my brush over both shades, but my cheeks ended looking very messy with patches of red. Maybe I will try this again another time and I will probably be more careful, as this blush is very pigmented.
Another thing I don't like about this is the usual Milani flip top compact, which is a pain to open and may sometime chip my nails.

I tracked down a Milani display that still had the great blushes they went and discontinued so I snatched up Cherries on Top...a shade I have had my eye on for a long time.
Like some of the others, I got carried away the first time I applied it. WOW, was not expecting it to be so pigmented with such a tiny short swipe of my brush. Very much like Mango Tango in terms of pigmentation level, you only need a teeny tiny dab.
The color is pretty..a flushed red. I also like manuvering my brush on only the pink side. It leaves a pretty pinky red flush.
Finally milled and long lasting. I don't know why Milani ever decided to do away with their blush line.

this blush has a comparable effect to nars crazed on me (another hg.) it is has a brightening effect to my skin and makes me look alive. i'm nc20-ish for reference. yes the pigment is very strong, but that's okay since i don't mind the look of a bright cheek. if you do mind, my suggestion would be to use a skunk brush with a very light hand.
these blushes can definately compare with high-end, and i would reccomend them to anyone.

as with other milani blushes, the texture is really silky & the coloring is lovely. unlike other softer wearable shades like luminous, cherries is highly pigmented & for pale skin, one swipe is more than enough. one stroke too many & you'll end up looking sunburned. nevertheless, when applied lightly, it gives cheeks a lovely flushed pinky color....a very innocent baby doll look. highlighting with the light pinky peach half of the duo adds a pretty glow. for reference, i'm a lsf 5/5.5 pale asian skin. the quality is incredible considering the price. comparable in price would be covergirl cheekers, but milani exceeds in quality. with cheekers, they can be a bit frosty depending on the shade, but milani gives just the right amount of subtle shimmer.

As someone with a deep skintone, I normally never buy drugstore blushes as they always look chalky on me. Milani blushes completely stands out in this respect. Wine & Roses is split pan blush that is wonderfully pigmented. One half holds an intense matte rose shade, the other half is a pale petal pink. It works best for me to just use the darker shade and add a tiny bit of the pale colour as a highlight. Gives a nice rosy glow on skin, very flattering. Swirled together, the colour looks too frosty on my NC45-50 skin. A bit of a hassle to use, but can't complain too much for the price I paid.

Yeaahh....this just makes me look sunburnt. Tried using a skunk brush, swirling around lightly, to do that MAC stereo rose trick..and yup. it didn't work. UP FOR SWAPS!

I am medium olive Filipino skin and the lightest dab of this with a blush brush gives me great color. Under 2 seconds to apply and very cheap. Will repurchase.

Thanks to it being winter, I look pasty and extremely sick. Well with this blush, my cheeks look nice and rosy. I agree with the other reviewers who claim that you need to be light handed with this product. The first few times I looked like I'd smeared lipstick on my cheeks. Now I lightly swipe my brush across the blush, blow it, and it goes on in a far more subtle way. Even if Milani weren't discontinuing this, I probably wouldn't buy it again. Why? Because I honestly think it'll be awhile before I need a new blush since you need very little of this product (I'm NC20 normally).

Hmm... I'm kinda on the fence with this one. When first applied, I look like I should put on a curly rainbow wig and and big red shoes and start juggling. But after I tone it down with LOTS and lots of blending (and a dusting of BE Mineral Veil) it looks...better. I actually like the brightening effect it has on the rest of my face. So if you're PPP like me, the key is to blend, blend and blend some more. It's not your everyday boring pink, and that's why I like it. I probably won't repurchase though because this one will last me forever.

most milani blush i've tried have been awesome as far as texture, pigment, and wearability - and this is no exception. this duo has a deep, slightly cherry red and a light nuded-pink shimmer highlighting shade. both are gorgeous on my cool PPP skintone.

This is one of those strange reviews that I feel I need to say I'd purchase this product again but just not in this color. I really like Milani's blushes and find them to be highly pigmented and great quality. However, cherries on top is a little too pigmented for my complexion (I'm PPP blonde and blue-eyed, neutral). It can look too clownlike on me if I'm not super careful and well, somedays I'm not super careful. In other words, it's not foolproof and with my hectic lifestyle, there are somedays that I throw on makeup half looking in the mirror. This blush is so on the cusp of being too dark that I simply don't reach for it. This should not discount the rating for quality however because it is a great blush and a beautiful color. It's just not my color. I could see this looking absolutely stunning on someone with a darker complexion than mine.
