I bought this blush a while ago, I think there might have been a sale or I was lemming a peach blush. When I first got it, it was winter and I think at the time I was too pale to really wear this right. In the pan it looks like a true peach color, but on my skin it was a little to strong and even a bit orange. Now that I've got some color (or at least am using more bronzer, haha) this looks amazing! I would guess I'm around NC35 right now and what I do is put on my foundation (right now Maybelline liquid mineral foundation in Sandy Beige) then put on a bronzer a bit under my cheekbones (Clinique sunblushed -note I did another review for this -great as a blush but not as bronzer on its own) then I put this blush on my cheeks and buff it out with a kabuki brush. I look so tan and glowing! The only thing is you will want to watch out for the pigmentation. I think part of the issue with me was that I was using a kabuki brush (= dense bristles so a TON of prigmentation) and I didn't get it. Now I just tap the blush, tap the brush, and pat it on lightly. The color payoff is great -very true to the compact. One lippie off for staying power -you will need to retouch this (but except for gel or stain blushes I have to retouch all my blushes). Hope this helps!

I love this color---it gives the perfect peach, semi-bright flush, not too dark, not too light. It's not too orange either and is a great blush for those who prefer warmer colors. I think it is the exact same color as Stila's Convertible Color in Gerbera. The only problem with this is that it looks like Paula's Choice is no longer selling it. In fact, all of her blushes, including the sheer ones, are in the pink and brown ranges. So if, like me, you prefer peachy, but not brown, blushes you may be out of luck at Paula's Choice for the time being.

Just enough color to give you a peachy flushed look. Kinda like you're blushing, "Only Better" I love it... Give it a try!

Swatched on my arm, this shade looks very close to L'Oreal Charmed Peach, but with a hint more pink. Both are bright peach shades, not shockingly bright, but not much tan in them. For warm ladies it would make a good choice for a blush leaning towards pink that will still work for them. Matte. Reminds me a little of the orgasm lookalikes but without shimmmer (i don't have orgasm myself)

I'm using this currently. It's very nice, not too strong on the cheeks. It's a peachy, pink... very pretty. It stays on well. I like it. Probably isn't the ideal color on me, but it's pretty close.

Very lovely soft peachy pink color. Sheer enough to be natural. Give that perfect flushed look. (NC30)
