Love this blusher!!! Took me several tries to figure out how to apply it correctly. Now, I use a LM angled blush brush and it goes on perfectly and lasts all day on my combo skin. I really love this product and will be looking it to other colors as well.

This cream blush, as noted earlier on the reviews, works like the texture of a gel. Instead of using your fingers, I use my MAC skunk brush and tap lightly and apply. Application has to be a stipple process, because it doesn't easily move around like an emollient creme like, for instance Becca.
However, the color pay-off is incredible, since it looks like an incredible bright pink glow as if you came in from skiing outdoors. Of course, you can control the amount of "pinkness" depending how much you stipple. This looks amazing on the apples of your cheeks, and creating a lighter pink up to the temples. On top of the cheekbones, I place highlighter to further create a glow, but a brightening glow! I love the shade of this pink. It's not a routine pinky-mauve, but a cool pink which I have been seeking for a long time!
Lasting ability is great. At least 8 hours. It doesn't disappear by absorbing into the skin. Nor, does it look fake, like sitting on top of the skin. It looks like real skin that is blushing. I applied Mercier Translucent Powder on top, and the color is still vibrant.
This is a great addition to my small stash of blush. It compliments rose-colored or pink lipsticks very well. The small, round palette is pretty pricey, but I believe well worth it since you only need a small quantity because of the highly pigmented nature. I am impressed by Kevyn Aucoin products, especially the Candlelight highlighter, and now, this fab blush. Very well worth a second look! You won't be disappointed.

This is one of my favorite formulation for cream blushes.
I'd say this formulation behaves more like a gel than a cream.
It goes on weighless and the pigmentation is unbelieveable, yet it's so blendable.
This gives me a just skiied down Whistler Mountain with Viggo Mortensen glow to my cheeks ;-) The staying power is impressive as well. I wear this alone or with bronzer in the summer. It's also beautiful with a pale face with the candle light highlighter on top.
The pot is so small and portable. I use a stainless artist spatula to scoop out enough like I do most of my products in pots. Makes me feel like a painter.

This blush is amazing. As a cool PPP (NW15/20 skintone), a couple of teensy dabs of this stuff gives me a glow-from-within like none other. It's literally fuchsia with not a touch of shimmer, highly pigmented, easy to blend, and lasts on me throughout the day. Lovely product with a texture akin to a pot of lipbalm in my opinion.

I would have never thought that a cool, bright pink blush would work for me, but this color is amazing. I'm nc15 and usually stick to warm colors, like peaches, corals, warm pinks etc... Lately I have been wanting to branch out and try new shades, and Liquifuschia is definitely different and very unique. The color can be built up from a subtle cool pink to a deeper mid toned fuchsia. If you are a fan of Nars Mata Hari, Desire, or Angelika, then this is the cream blush for you. As a side note, if you have fairly yellow undertones and most pinks turn peach on you, then try this color on it's own or as a base, the amount of blue tones in this will counteract the yellow undertones and keep your other blushes from becoming warm.

I really love the bold, bright color. It reminds me of a spring orchid. The color is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. The downside though, is that it is hard to blend. It's not "creamy" at all! It takes some rubbing in to make it look natural. I'm not sure about this product...

I am not reviewing Liquifuschia, I'm actually reviewing Bliss but since there wasn't an option... I am in love with this and it's become HG for me.
The texture of this is silky and smooth, it blends so easily, it melts into your skin. Bliss is a pink, bright pink but doesn't seem so bright when you buff it into your skin.
I gave this a 3 lippie for packaging. It comes in a small round metal pot, .14 oz. I had difficulty getting product onto my brush so I ended up using my fingers to apply and then buffing it out with a kabuki brush.
This color gives me a "I've been outside flush". I loved this so much that I just ordered 2 more in different colors!

i bought this cream blush quite awhile ago- loved it in the store when an SA applied it to me- it's a very pretty, very bright pink that really wakes up my pale skin- but i just couldn't get a hang of the application at home.
i have dry-ish skin, and don't wear foundation/primer/powder etc, so getting this to apply smoothly was difficult. it doesn't have much slip. i thought i'd like that, since i can't stand cream blushes that are very sticky (like Tarte)... but try as i might, i couldn't get this to spread on my cheeks with my fingers.
well, finally i wised up and tried using a stiff Stila blush brush to apply this. i lightly press the tips of the brush into the little blush pot, then stipple it onto the apples of my cheeks- and voila- it looks great! and is SO easy! i feel like a moron for not thinking to do this earlier.
i think the trick with this, if you use a brush, is to use a very stiff one where you can just sort of 'stamp' the product onto your cheeks- it really doesn't spread very well, even with a foundation-style brush. but with the blush brush, it's great.
so, with the right application, i love this blush. color is pretty, it wears well all day, and i can't feel it on top of my skin like most cream blushes.

I absolutely love this blush! I prefer cream blushes, as they don't tend to dry out my skin the way powder blushes can. I also think they look more natural on me. This is the fifth cream or gel blush I've used and it is by far my favorite. The formula is VERY blendable and buildable. The color seems like it would be flattering on most skin tones; it is a berry-ish shade that imparts a very natural looking flush.
Despite this being a cream formula, it has great staying power. I apply it to bare skin and don't put anything over it (no powder or anything) and it lasts and looks fresh until I wash it off. Actually, the longer I wear it, the more it looks like a lit-from-within glow.
This is pricey, but it seems that it will last a while, since a little goes a long way. When the day comes that I run out, I will definitely re-purchase.

Edit: After discovering Tarte Cheek Stains, this product drops to a 1.
First, a disclaimer - I'm very new to blush. I've only used a couple powder blushes before and this is my first cream one. I bought it due to the rave reviews here and because I have dry-ish skin, meaning blush powder seemed to dry out my already dry cheeks. I don't wear foundation or powder usually, so it made sense to try out a cream blush.
I've been wearing it for about 2 weeks, and I still haven't gotten the hang of it. I make little dabs and blend, but because it's so concentrated, as other reviewers note, you have to blend it out A LOT. Yet the process of rubbing it around turns my cheeks red, so I don't get a sense of the color intensity or evenness. After a while, when I look in the mirror again, it seems to always not be on right - one cheek is darker, it's not blended properly, etc. Again, this may be my inability to understand how to put it on, but I feel I've watched enough youtube tutorials to get the hang of it.
I'll edit if I have a breakthrough, but if not, it's on to another cream, perhaps one not so concentrated in pigmentation.

This is a great blush. It's not as creamy as the MAC cream blushes, which is a good thing for those of us with oily skin. At first I was hesitant to shell out $24 for this because most cream blushes disappear on me by noon, but this seems to last all day. The color is bright pink in the pan, but you can make it as dark or as sheer as you want, being that it seems to have a gel base to it. I am happy with this and am curious to try the other colors.

RO for pics. For reference, I'm NW15 with normal skin (dry in winter, sometimes oily in summer, occasional breakouts). This is my first KA creamy moist glow, but it won't be my last! It's a beautiful bright, cool-toned fuschia blush that comes in a little pot the size of walnut in its shell. It looks like a very small amount of product until you use it. As you scrape some product out of the pot (I use a cotton swap to avoid contamination) you'll see that this is a VERY pigmented, thick blush. It's much thicker than any other "cream" blush I've used, and works best if warmed between your fingers before applying. That being said, it blends beautifully and really stays put all day. I don't notice any shimmer in this blush, either in the pot or on my skin. I highly recommend this blush and really think it would work for light and dark skinned ladies, as it is so highly pigmented! Will definitely repurchase, if I ever need to.

Absolutely love this stuff! I wanted something that would make me look fresh and bright..this definitely does. It's the perfect pink.

This one works for me beter than Pravella. I can see it makes me healthy and awake and cute. It lasts all day on me. I have no problem with the compact because it is easy to carry with me. I am pale with red hair and freckles on the summertime, blue eyes.

Years ago, I bought a ton of KA products online, as I live in a very small town with no access to HE brands. I have enjoyed all of them. I do not use this often, as I have oily skin and prefer powder blush. I have never broken out from this cream blush and when I do use it for special occassions, I double it up with KA's powder blush that is a cotton candy pink. This jar looks as tiny as a concealer pot but trust me, it is so concentrated it will last years and years even if you used it often. It look's scary fushia in the pot, but just the tiniest dot and your cheeks will have the most natural, in from the cold flush, that will last throughout the day with no fading...I am glad I purchased this and would 100% recommend this product to all!

I have been using Kevyn's cream blush in the paler shade (Pravella) and just tried Liquifuschia....WOW!!! The prior reviewer is 100% correct and I bought this based on her recommendation (even though she has oily skin). The good news for me is this is perfect for really dry, mature skin like mine. It gives a beautiful deep pink glow without looking fake or unnatural. This is my favorite cream blush to date.... a creamy, moist, easy to blend texture in a fantastic, flattering shade...couldn't ask for anything more in a blush! It looks fabulous with all my HOT pink summer lippies, too!

This gorgeous, glowy pink blush is one of my favorites. Cream blushes don't usually work well with my oily skin, but this sinks in beautifully and has a lasting power that rivals that of a powder. The shade is a great match for my fair, cool coloring, though it seems to work well on most tones. I'm also a fan of Aucoin's packaging; though the jars may be small, there's a lot in them and they're not deceptively large like most brand's are. Definitely recommended!

Love this product- it's not too greasy, but just enough slip so you can press it into the skin (either lips or cheeks) and leave a dewey glow that looks like your skin's naturally flushed. The shade is a bright hot pink but applied it's a gorgeous rosey pink.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Blue
this is the most blue toned, HOT pink blush around. i adore it. every blush seems to turn orange on me, but with liquifuschia as a base, and powder blush over it.. parfait!
it looks quite intense and neon-like in the small jar, but it is VERY sheer and VERY buildable and i do believe any skin color can use it.
(i am an NW15, pink undertones)
the quality is great. stays fresh, the tiniest dab will carry you in good stead all day/night, and it doesnt seem to get hard or lose its efficacy at all.
i search and search for things with strong blue undertones and this works well. staying power- excellent, building power- excellent, application- the jar is small, but it gildes on the cheeks beautifully, easy to blend into seamlessness. worth the price, as are all KA products i have tried.

This product is my HG blush. I have oily skin but this cream blush isn't greasy at all! It stays put all day and gives me the perfect natural pink/rosy look. Though the blush looks really fuschia and dark in the pot, on the skin it is GORGEOUS! I have olive/tan asian skin.
I wish I could've bought more than one pot of this stuff. I got it for dirt cheap at Nordstrom Rack. Luckily I found one that was untouched (most of the products at NR were spoiled by people who liked to dip their dirty fingers into everthing arrrgh)!
Anyways, this product is great and my fav blush. Go get it!
