Kevyn Aucoin cosmetics really are nice and high quality. I was first introduced to his blushes when I saw the color 'Myracle' which is a hot pink. I love this blush and a little goes a looooong way. I was looking for a peachy apricot color and when I saw Dolline, I knew I had to try it. After applying the color with my ELF powder brush, I noticed that the color really didnt show up on my face, UNLESS I applied a heavy hand. I'm NC 30-35 and this color was just OK. I guess the color didnt really stand out on my skintone. I believe this color would compliment fair skin tones nicely rather than medium/olive. In case you are wondering, the blush is housed in a sleek and slim, red plastic case. It comes with a mirror and a small brush. There is no shimmer in the blush. Keep in mind that his blushes are very powdery so make sure you have a good base to work with prior to applying. Yes. It is expensive ($35-37) but I like the fact that there are few ingredients and great quality. Highly pigmented and finely milled. All in all, I say give his blushes a try!

Love this blush! Perfect color of light/medium peachy/apricot. Really warms up and brightens the face. This is what I wanted Chanel Espiegle to be. Though I still do like the Chanel, I find their blushes are not the most pigmented. I have yet to find a Kevyn Aucoin product I don't like. This goes on super smooth, has terrific staying power (at least 14 hours for me), and doesn't break me out. It's pricey, but for the quality, you really do get what you pay for. Super pigmented, super luxurious, super beautiful. I would definitely repurchase this blush. It's one of my favorites in my collection. I rate it up there with Illamasqua for pigment and quality.

Holy moly, easily the prettiest blush out there! I have always been more of a pink blush person, but based on the reviews from MUA, I decided to take the plunge. And the plunge has been head over heels, skipping down the street like a school girl type of plunge. Not sure what I can add that hasn't been said before - yes its expensive. yes, I too get compliments on how great I look, not on the makeup. yes it lasts all day on my oily skin... yes, I am in love. I say I would repurchase but not sure that I need to as these blushes seem to last forever. If you have a special occasion or a birthday coming up and desire a treat, this is it. You won't look back.

This and KA Shadore (Soft Pink) are the two blushes that are ALWAYS front and center on my makeup table. This is the ultimate, matte apricot. For reference, it's far more orange and less pink than Bobbi Brown's Apricot blush, but it has about the same pigment level and intensity. It's great with all coral and peach lip colors. If I could only have two blushes, Shadore and Dolline would be my choices. When I travel, I limit myself to these two. I'm not crazy about the oblong compact, but the little brush inside is quite adequate for quick touch ups.
This is BLUSH PERFECTION!
On a side note, one earlier reviewer claimed that phenyl trimethicone (a type of silica used in KA powder blush) commonly causes acne. In fact, it is normally listed on acne websites as being safe and non-comedogenic. I have never seen it listed as an ingredient that causes acne. That's not to say that it couldn't make someone break out--almost any cosmetic ingredient can do that. I just wouldn't let this scare me away from trying this superb blush.

high quality, great peach matte blush. every day of the week im either wearing this shade or shadore. couldnt live without them. LOVE that this is a true matte blush which i think is sometimes hard to find. for double a double dose consider the cream blush then applying the powder for super staying power but not necessary i just hate carrying too many products with me in my tiny evening bags.

Believe the hype. I have a ton of peach, coral and salmon blushes already so I didn't buy this for the longest time. Now that I have, I love it. While the shade is beautiful - an invigorating bright peach that really wakes up warm complexions without looking clownish - it's the way it melts into your skin and looks so natural that makes this blush special. If you feel blushes look stripey or loud on you, but find sheer blushes to just vanish, give this a try. It gives my non-cheekbones definition, gives my whole face color, yet looks like part of my natural flush. Great blush.

I would not buy this again because it is too pigmented for me. However, I must note that I *hate* to look like I'm wearing blush. (The only blushes that are sheer enough for me are Becca's Sylph, Malika & Wisp.)
I just touched the tip of my 187 to the cake & lightly applied it, and while it probably would've looked perfect to most people, for me it was too much (because it showed!).
But the shade --- omg, pure heaven. Slightly warm, yet healthy/semi-bright peach. And what everyone says about the "glow from within look" is absolutely true. I didn't know exactly what they meant by that until I tried this. Unlike my other blushes (all powder) this looks like a cream blush because it leaves a glow on your cheeks that looks naturally dewy!? I've never used anything like it . . . a powder that ends up looking like you just blush this shade naturally, if you know what I mean by that.
This is called a "matte" blush, but there is nothing matte about it! Having said that, there is no shimmer either. But since it gives a slightly dewy glow, it just shouldn't be called matte.
I applied it, very sparingly, at 8:15AM. At 11:30PM it was still there in full force - no fading at all, and no oxidizing or changing color. With my slightly yellow coloring (NC20) this shade gives the most naturally beautiful flush. If KA would just make this in a super-sheer version I'd be all over it.

Hands down the best blush ever. Don't be fooled by the online color, it looks like a pale beige color. This is actually a fleshy pink that looks like an instant flush once you put it on your face. Totally natural. This is in between shimmer and matte.

Dolline is a gorgeous peach matte blush, which will gives me a fresh and awaken complexion any time I use it. Although it is matte, it's doesn't leave a chalky or powdery finish on your cheeks.
The package is sleek and has a big mirror. The brush it comes along with is nice to reapply on the go. I'll use another brush if I'm at home or have my MU brushes with me, but for a quick fix one I'm out of the door, the one that comes in the compact will do.
It is a pricey blush and it's difficult to find where I live, but I'd def. repurchase if I run out.

Gorgeous, fleshy peach. A very pigmented blush, so a light swipe is all you need. Looks great, like a winter wind-whipped flush on my NW20 skin. It reminds me of NARS Gina, except a little less orange and with a translucent quality. No shimmer in this blush but it's not flat matte, looks more the way a cream or gel blush might go on. As dense as the brush is, it's quite nice for sculpting cheeks, just be careful with the amount that goes on as dense brushes pack a ton of colour.

Nice color, but the cake is so hard that it takes a long time to get enough product on a brush (making me that minute more late). And then I stand there in the morning still wanting more. So I put another blush over it. Yes, color blends very nicely, but not enough magic here for a re-purchase at $38 (but I paid $30 during the Sephora F&F). Less expensive, beautiful peach is Physician's Formula Talc Free Blush in Blushing Glow (peach) or Natural Glow (light peach) (the one that looks like a marbled, pressed powder). Both matte.

I've always have worn pink or bronze colored blushes. I was unsure about purchasing this peach blush but due to the reviews here, I purchased it. I use many of KA's products so I know they are of the highest quality---this is no exception. The color is subtle but thats all that you nedd if your fair-med skin tone. Darker skin tones could build this color. It's a soft apricot/peach color w/out any shimmer. Looks so good and natural on the apples of my cheeks. The color has not faded or changed colors throughout the day on my oily skin. Great looking sleek compact.

i had a make up lesson and the MA used all KA products, with some BECCA thrown in.. she used this blush! WOW!!! i love it! best peach ever. prior to this i used MAC peaches..but now..i'm in love with this product. it can be layered and layered to be built up....just a beautiful shade..

OMG!!! This is the most beautiful color and is my new favorite makeup item. I will never stray from this blush. PERFECT!!!

This is by far the best blush I've ever owned. I threw my NARS orgasm in the trash, that's how much better this is. It glides on really smooth, and although the color in the compact is scary, it's GORGEOUS on. I look so fresh and glowy with this on. I love this so much, I plan on buying the other colors. $37 is expensive, BUT I've had it for 6 months and haven't even put a dent in it, and I use it every day. HG!!

I'm on a peach/apricot blush craze lately and this may be as good as it gets. The color is soft but bright; nicely lights up olive skin without being too orange. BB Coral & Calypso Coral are too unnatural looking for my taste but this is right on. Love the finish too, silky and matte.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Blue
This is an amazingly gorgeous blush! It goes on silky smooth and gives the subtlest, warmest glow. This has replaced Nars Orgasm as my "can't live without" blush.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
At first I was intimidated by the price of this product.. but I'm glad I bought it anyway... It's the best peachy blush I've been wanting in a matte blush. This has no shimmer in it and lasts all day. Looks very natural for an everyday look. Would repurchase again!!

very pigmented pretty pinkish apricot color. my prob is that it feels too "heavy" on my skin.

Beautiful from-within-glow. You can add on for more colour without it looking cakey. I love the packaging as well and the brush that goes with it-although I have full-sized makeup brushes from MAC and Laura Mercier,when I'm in a hurry, I just use the dome-shaped brush in the case and it looks as good.
