I actually bought this 'Hot Flash' Blush/Bronzer combo, as well as the TANtalizer Highlighter/Matte bronzer duo (who knows why, I was in the mood the splurge). I think the Bronzer side is the same in both duos. In any case, the product works and looks pretty nice on a fully foundation-ed face, good for going out at night and parties. If used properly and lightly, can also look rather natural for daytime use. My only problem is that this bronzer makes me break-out. Sometimes I get a hoard of tiny little bumps where the bronzer is applied, and sometimes I get full on pimples forming at the site of application. It could just be coincidence, but since I've stopped using this product, my blemishes are no longer localized like that... So it's possible that this product aggravates my combination oily/acne-prone skin. I also scar easily and it takes several weeks for dark marks and acne spots to go away..... so I do not recommend this product for acne-prone people. However, for those whose skin is not so sensitive, it is a great product for the price and should last for about a year with near-daily usage.

this duos nice.. especially the bronzer side. the pink was cute too, but i didn't reach for it much. i prefer buying the bronzer and blush seperately.

I love this blush/bronzer combo. I originally got a mini in a kit from LORAC and was super scared to try it. I was so afraid of looking like a clown! I love the natural looking flush the pink gives me (I'm about a NW20ish) and the bronzer looks very natural (with a light hand).
Don't be fooled, it's magically colored! The pink may look too bright and the bronzer too dark but they're not! Just remember you don't need a million swipes like with some blushes. One swipe, blend, and you'll look amazing. Also, on me, it has a bit of a sheen. Not really simmer, but I guess a glow. My only complaint is that it doesn't last all day, but nothing lasts all day on me so I think that may be a my skin problem, and not this blush's.

After reading the reviews here, I had to check it out. When I saw the pan, I was a bit intimidated. Soooo bright. But, Ulta has a great return policy. So, I handed over $30. I'm so disappointed because I really love this and my blush stash is growing by the hours! ;p)
The color is mush nicer on the cheeks than on the pan. I haven't tried the bronzer and I'm getting tips from the y'all. But, I love the blush and my mother in law has commented that I look really pretty with it in. Unlike some stories, my mother in law is one of my best friends. We often go to Sephora and have coffee...at least once a week. I digree...LOVE, LOVE this blush, it gives me a soft flush look. Used it in the last two days and has great staying power...6-7 hours so far. For the price, it's great!

This is fantastic...people who see this product always ask to try it and end up buying it. It is the perfect combo and does a wonder for a variety of skintones
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
the pigmentation of both the blush and bronzer is amazing
be sure to use sparingly or you'll end up looking like a clown, believe me..
it comes with a mirror and mini brush which is nice but i dont use them really
the only downfall is that the packaging is kinda weak
i dropped mine in my sink and the blush side already cracked /:
so if you're a person like me who is really clumsy and drops things all the time i might skip on this product cuz the product will crack and get everywhere, which is a shame because the colors are really pretty

Excellent product for travel. Use the pink side or the bronze side for different colors but...blend the 2 colors together for a delicious cheek glow! You will get a different effect depending on the brush you use (stipple, kabuki, or blush). This blush rocks but doesn't look appealing in the pan. You gotta try it to love it!

i am in lloovvee with this duo!! i have been searching high and low for the perfect pink and i think i finally found it! i usually own only MAC products but i like to experiment with great products too and this is no exception! i normally don't do pink blushes like MAC pink swoon, well dressed, dame...they tend to make me look sick on my NC40 tanned tone. however, i knew there was a pink out there that i would fall in love with and this is it!! i also love the bronzer in this compact and the two mixed together look fantastic!
it is pretty expensive, but everything out there at sefora and MAC is quite the same price range so didn't really mind!

This is my all time favorite blush (NARS orgasm is a close second). Both the blush and bronzer are quite sheer so application is relatively easy. I do a quick swipe of bronzer underneath my cheekbones and another swipe of blush on the apples of my cheeks- I then use a stippling brush to blend everything together. It brightens my face as it gives off a natural (with a bit of shimmer) looking glow.

Ok... I LOVE LOVE this bronzer/blush...i have it in hot & spicy...It makes your skin look really healthy and flawless!! but the only thing with it...theres alot of shimmer in it. so that can be kinda harsh during the day ..But it looks fabulous at night

I love this blush! I can you use each by themselves or I can blend both and it gives me a glow. The only one bad thing I would say about this blush is that it breaks easily but other then that I don't haven any complaints.

Loved this bronzer when I first bought it - until I discovered that it breaks me out! I tried it three separate times - and wound up breaking out right after. There's something in it that clogs pores, possibly the silicone? Not sure. But I checked the box and website to see if it's noncomedogenic - and it doesn't say this anywhere. So this had to go back.

Definetly the best bronzing powder out there! The price tag is a bit much but certainly worth it. As other reviewers have said, this is very pigmented. You don't have to grind this powder into your skin or you may end up looking dirty and too shimmery. Just lightly dip your brush into the powder, tap a bit off and lightly dust it on your skin. Start out with a light hand and build more colour if needed.
I love the fact that there are 2 colours; a bright pink and a dark brown. Sometimes I blend the two together, other times I wear each one on their own or I will put the brown on first and then use the pink over top or under it to highlight.
When I pair this with my Yves Rocher Bronze Nature self tanning moisturizer for face, this gives my light freckled skin a glow and I end up looking like I spent the day at the beach. I did notice however when I first started using this powder I was sort of grinding the colour onto my cheeks and I got a bit of a rash from it...maybe an allergic reaction , but I don't get it anymore since I've using a lighter hand.
This bronzer does have a bit more shimmer than I'm used to but still gives amazing believable results. The con to this is the cheap brush that is included in the underneath compartment of the compact. I used it once and ended up with a stripe of colour on my cheeks. Now I use my retractable blush/bronzer brush with it.

It made my cheeks so pretty lookin, but when i put it on it made my face sooooo shimmery. I am so not a fan of shimmer, which is the main reason why I dont really like this product. Also, it made my face break out.

This is a beautiful blush and bronzer. Very high quality and I love the packaging. My cheeks are so healthy looking and glowing.

I have fair-olive skin and I'd have to say blush is really my favorite type of makeup. I'd have to agree with most of the users that this blush is really severe and is high in pigment. It's bright. A little goes a long way and this blush/bronzer duo makes your skin looks like it glows. It sort of has that just came out of a day at the beach bronze-pinky look to it. This is one of my favorite bronzers and I would definitely buy it again.

Ok, I'm just not a bronzer person because most just look muddy on my pale skin. It's not natural to have a bronzed face when my neck, chest, arms & legs haven't seen sun in forever! That said, I really really like the blush side of this compact. It's hot pink with quite a bit of fine shimmer, so I would advice tapping off excess powder before you apply on the cheeks. The color is makes me look bright and awake (I'm generally a peachy or rosy hue person when it comes to blush - Tarte's Flushed & Blissful, NARS' Orgasm/Crazed). Don't be put off by the hot pink because it is actually very wearable if you have light or light-medium skintone.
The bronzer side though, isn't very shimmery, which is good for lots of people, but I found the color too muddy, too brown, not bronzey enough for me. It's very pigmented, so use a light hand.
Oh, and the brush that comes along with this compact is great! It actually applies the blush quite well - this half moon shape, decently soft brush. That's a definite plus for me.
I will repurchase for the blush again, but not for the bronzer.

Why are you soo pretty, and completely useless for me ?? This blush and bronzer duo are wayyy to pigmented and dark for me. Even the tinest speck is to much. Which sucks because its expensive, and the compact is soo cute. Mine also broke. The mirror and the powders. I didnt even do anything that bad to it. Its not like I threw it off a building !! But to salvage my money. Im going to take some face color stuff that is to light and mix them. Ill let you guys know how it goes. :)

I lusted after this thing for years before I finally broke down and bought it. I really like the bronzer side; although it's very very pigmented and a bit too dusty for my taste, it gives a nice natural glow that truly makes me look sunkissed. As a NC50 DDD it's not easy to find a bronzer that looks natural and this is as close as I've come so far. My only problem with this is the blush; I love the way it looks in the pan but when I put it on my face it comes out looking more silvery (and therefore chalky) than pinky on me. Not sure if it's just my crappy (Quo) brushes or what; but I've stopped even attempting to use the blush side because it totally ruins the effect of the bronzer. Now I just layer another blush over it instead. But that makes it kind of a waste of money as this product is not cheap. If I find that this is a brush issue, then I'll re-purchase. If not, I'll have to keep on truckin'

Like Most things LORAC .. i love this product!
- GLOW without using a highlighter
- LITTLE dust of brush on top of product goes a very long way
- Perfectly matched colors
- A lot of product
- Comes with a very GOOD brush..Not like other compacts u get some cheap plastic bristley crap.. it is shaped pefectly to fit the apples ofyour cheeks for the blush color :)
- I dropped mine and it BROKE :( ..so i guess ..it could be a little sturdier
