I've loved CoverGirl's Classic Color Blush in Soft Mink since I first started playing in my mom's makeup drawer. I recently got two more colors, and they did not disappoint.
Rose Silk is a medium pink that has golden-silver shimmer. In terms of color, it is slightly more subtle version of MAC's Dollymix blush, although Rose Silk has a much stronger reflective quality. I actually prefer Rose Silk over Dollymix.
As someone with oily skin, I find that super-shimmery blushes can accentuate pores, make me look shiny, or settle into dry spots. The shimmer in the CoverGirl classic color blushes, however, is beautiful reflective and it doesn't give me any grief--it just makes for perfectly glowing cheeks.
Yes, the packaging is horrid. Yes, it smells like "old lady makeup", but the product is beautiful. If you like shimmery blush, definitely try this!

Gorgeous color, great pigmentation, natural finish; this is an outstanding drugstore blush! The color is amazing. I recommend it!

this is probably the best buy in the drugstore when it comes to blush. the color shows up and stays all day. the only reservations I have about it are the packaging (which if you've never seen before can be confusing) and the case tends to crack if you manhandle it. the brush is a joke, so I always throw it away and keep a separate brush handy. so with a coupon at CVS, this cost me four bucks. for the money it is great and I do not notice an overwhelming perfume. CG used to be known for "heavy old-lady" scents in their cosmetics, but I think they've gotten over it. Whew! I have Nars, Chanel and MAC blushes and I still come back to CG

I used to wear this shade in the '90s, as drugstore makeup was all I could afford-- as my budgetary situation now with 2 little kids is similar, I thought I'd try it again. I remembered it as a nicely neutral, coral-pink that went with every outfit and makeup scheme. I don't know if the shade has changed or if I just can't pull it off anymore at age 42, but it's a fail.
There is LOADS of cool silver shimmer in this, on top of the base color, so it isn't really a neutral shade. It's hard to apply enough to flush my cheeks without also overloading my face with shimmer that sticks in every pore and makes me look older and unpleasantly oily.
CG does make a few more "matte" shades of blush now, but in general the whole lineup is shimmer-infused and unnatural-looking.

My skin tone is very fair, I have used this since I was in college. Not only is it easy to apply, it stays on all day for me, and my skin is very oily & I sweat a lot!! The color is just lovley,on my fair skin it makes my cheeks the perfect shade of rosey, and has a little shimmer to make me glow. No need to apply a shimmer for the glossy finish because this blush is perfect! I wear it to work, on date nights with my husband, when I go out any where.Perfect for all occasions!!

It had a nice application. Silky texture and nice colouring.

Oh my god this is the WORST blush I have ever used. First off the smell! It smells of strong old lady perfume. The only thing that shows up is the sparkles and the brush is a joke. The packaging is flimsy and prone to breaking. Why did I buy this ughhh

This is a really good natural blush for my skin tone! However, it contains a lot of shimmer and was a little disappointed about that. I wish it was more matted like their classic pink blush.
When I use this, I won't apply any highlighter since I think this is sparkly enough.
I don't know if I'll buy this again, I really like the color, but I don't like the shimmer:/

Well, all the preceding reviewers have basically said it all: this is a lovely satin finish light rose-pink blush with very muted shimmer. Like a previous reviewer, I am also NC20 and yes, this color works beautifully on our skin tone. I'm using my MAC 109 brush to apply as I feel like I get good control and can build up color easily by working in small circles. Forget the brush that comes with it--these are never meant to be used by humans. Excellent blush, great price, who can argue?

I will never stop buying this blush. Ever. It is the perfect tone for my NC20 skin. I love how natural it looks with a very very VERY subtle shimmer that just brightens up my face. It applies easily and stays put all day. The price is outstanding and this is definitely my HG blush. I can see this looking really nice on all skin tones. Either I use it alone or I also like to use this as a setter for my NARS multiple stick in orgasm. Sometimes it smells a little funny baby /powdery but I don't mind it that much.
