Scary when first squeezed out of tube as is a dark, flaming orange, but applied beautifully to give a lovely, flushed look. Blend *quickly* on well-moisturised skin or freshly applied foundation or you're left with a blotch. I prefer this shade to the original (Raspberry), as it suits my colouring better. Don't like the packaging, as can't see how much in the tube, and can end up squeezing too much. Quite nice on lips topped with gloss too. Washes off with soap and water. A winner for me - but may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Best blush. Period. I love blush that allows you to still see my skin underneath. Where it still shows a glow and not all matte. This blush is perfect for that. I put on my bronzer and then this on top of it and my skin looks clean and glowy and a little bit of this goes a long way, so it lasts forever. It goes on smoothly, lasts all day, and looks like I was just out in the sun for an hour type look. Love it. Will definitely be buying again.

Well, as with most beauty products I use this for other than it's intended purpose, for the lips rather than cheeks. I don't like to emulate the look of bright red cheeks, as they're already red on their own.
My lips however, I do love to brighten them up in shades of warm red, which that's how it appears when used as a lip stain. It wears quite well but as with most stains fast, strategic blending is a must along with a good cleanser to remove the evidence after using your finger to apply the gel.
To counterbalance the color from going too orange I used to layer Origins Rain and Shine in Ruby Slippers a sheer blue-based gloss stick, on top. This combo was my signature color for a while and always got tons of compliments when I wore the two together.
The mini metal tube packaging is adorable and very portable altho not recommended as the metal may break, leak and wreak havoc on your pant pocket. I learned this the hard way, indirectly when my tube ended up in the dryer and leaked all over my clothes thanks to a small hole in a weak spot of the tube caused by creases created when squeezing the ity bity tube.
So use and carry carefully, lol. The color payoff is great. It's kind pricey for the amount of product (.1 fl oz) ; I paid around $13 for it a couple years ago at Macy's but I highly recommend this for lip stain fanatics who prefer a warmer-toned color, over say the more traditional blue-based stains, like Benefit Benetint.

I bought a tube of Origins Pinch Your Cheeks - Coralberry to qualify for some free shipping and was amazed at how well I liked the product. I was skeptical of a cheek stain as I'd never used one before but it really does give me a much more natural looking glow to my cheeks than power blush. I never use my old powder blushes anymore, they seem so flat in comparison.
I have not had any trouble with the packaging or staining of my fingers like others have mentioned. I apply the stain to my cheeks, blend it in and them wash my hands when I finished.

I'm in love. Savagely passionate love.
I'm a big fan of cheek stains but my favorite was always Stila's cheek gels..and of course they were discontinued *SOBS*..I've tried numerous others and while I do like some brands nothing ever came close.
Enter Origins Pinch Your Cheeks Coralberry.
I wear this two ways - if I'm in a hurry I just wear it alone - just a nice flush of color (slightly peached-pink), stays on very well, gives enough drying time to blend in pretty well..If I'm doing my everyday look I actually wear it under powder blush. For some reason when I use it under a blush it makes the blush last ALL DAY (like 14+ hours. no joke - they should make a clear version of whatever is in this stuff and market it as an mu primer. its like concrete!) It also adds more dimension/glow to the color of my powder blush.
Ever since I started wearing this under my usual blush I have gotten complimented numerous times on my skin. I blame it all on this.
Savage passionate love. DO NOT discontinue this or I might have to slash some tires type savage passionate love.

Don't know why this didn't get a great review, for the price you can't go wrong and I've used this on myself and a friend and it's great. Good for lips too as a base for lip gloss. The color itself is a clean subtle apricot color and if blended quickly will look amazing! I love this!

I am quite a fair/pale skinned Asian, and this color worked for me, surprisingly! It looks pretty natural and gives my pale skin a healthy glow! :) Its my first stain that I've used and surprisingly I have no problems blending it (I use my fingers). Maybe its because I moisturize my skin before applying it, so it makes it easier to blend. Although I don't quite fancy the packaging, I do not have problems with it oozing or leaking. Price wise, its quite a small tube for the price you pay BUT it seems to last forever! Never regretted purchasing this product :)

I love this product for my oily, acne prone, DDD skin. This is the best stain I've tried. Yep - sure is. You just take a dab of color and put it right on the apple of your cheeks. Work fast though - cause this stuff sets like a few seconds. Once it goes on it stays on all day and will not need to be reapplied. Most importantly, it looks very natural and doesn't make me feel like I ran though a clown store for blush advice.

SOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!! I was browsing the products at the local Origins counter and this blush caught my eye. I have a dark, tanned NC45 complexion with very warm undertones. The SA offered to try the brownberry shade on me but it blended into my skin and the colour didn't show up enough. So next I decided to try Coral Berry. I unscrewed the cap and the product came oozing out all over my fingers! when I asked the SA if this frequently occurs, she said no and that the oozing was only "caused by gravity" because of how the display was positioned. YEAH RIGHT!!
Anyway, Coral Berry looked fantastic on my complexion. It has a great feel and it blends into my skin seamlessly. It lasts all day but washes off easily at night. It only costs $12.50 CDN but for that price, you don't get a lot of product.
If Origins would get the message and change the horrible packaging, I would give this product 5 lippies.

Very pretty, sheer, colorful blush. Coralberry is a bright coral (very original, huh?!) on my NC25 cheeks. Just a small dab will do, but it works best if you dab three small dots on each apple of each cheek, then blend. The only downfall is it tends to come out of the tube and keep coming out, so you just have to squirt a tiny bit out of it. It will keep pumping out on it's own.

Product - Gel blush in a sheer peachy red shade that wears as a lively, warm reddish coral on my AAB/NC25 skin. Gives my cheeks a nice warm flush. The gel holds together very well, it's not runny at all, so it's very easy to work with. Application is not a problem unless you don't like using your fingertips. The gel is sheerer than many other liquid/gel stains, so it takes a teeny bit more for use as blush; stains my fingertips very efficiently though! Sets pretty quickly, so work fast. I squeeze a dab onto a fingertip, rub that fingertip with the one on my opposing hand, then dab onto both cheeks and blend quickly. Works fine on lips also but doesn't taste like it was intended for lip use, so I top it with gloss. As with most gel stains, your skin should be in good condition or properly moisturized first.
Comparisons - Coralberry is a dead ringer to Julie Hewitt Cheekie lip/cheek creme pot in Peachie.
Packaging - Small silver metal tube (like a little paint tube) with a long fine tip and black plastic cap. The fine tip makes it easy to control how much you squeeze out. Unlike the other reviewers, I haven't had any issues with it oozing, so I really dont mind the packaging at all. The shade is represented by a stripe on the tube and listed clearly on the backside. About as long as an LM metallic creme shadow but not as wide.
Overall - Pleasant discovery via swap. Would prefer that it didn't stain my fingers so quickly, though :)

Argh...I can't believe I bought this product. I was looking for something that would imitate the Tarte Cheekstain in Tickled Peach --- I wanted a sheer, peachy red color. The color of this product is just that --- a sheer, peach-red.
I wanted to use this on my cheeks AND lips. On my cheeks, this gel dries too quickly; therefore it does not blend enough. I am left with a bright, unnatural looking stain on my cheeks that I just want to wash off. It works slightly better on the lips. But it goes on blotchily.
And it stains my finger so bad. It tells you to wash your hands after use. They mean RIGHT after use. After I use this on one cheek I have to scrub my fingers with soap. Then I dry my hands. Then the next cheek, and I scrub my fingers with soap again. Then I dry my hands. Then I apply it to my lips. Wash my fingers. Dry them. How convenient! This product is just a pain in the butt.
Not only that, the packaging is horrendous...

Cheeks stain are just not for me, I have difficlut time with pinch your cheeks, this is hard to blend, color is too bright for my taste, nomatter how little I apply, I esp. dislike the stain left on my finger. 1 more thing to complain is their packaging quality, it always leaks more than you mean to squeeze out.

Olive skin and I look sallow in winter. This product looks so natural on me and really brightens up my face. Wear it every day.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
i found this to be an extremely bright red that no matter what i try to do with it, it just doesn't look natural on me. i have to disagree with the reviewer who said this is the same color as most of the stains out there, i found this to be garish and unnatural looking. i will stick to my philosophy stains and not try any more pinch your cheeks colors from origins.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
Staying power is excellent. Color is...I have to say, the same as almost every other cheek stain out there. A hot pink color. Which is fine if the color looks good on you. But for my pale pinkish skin ... it's not my HG blush color.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Yes, the packaging leaves a lot to be desired, but I still love this product. I've tried more expensive blushes by Stila and Armani, but nothing works as well as Origins Pinch Your Cheeks. Very natural, long-lasting, and easy to apply (I put this on just after foundation, so it's easy to blend). I do prefer the original color, but with the amount of coral and turqoise I plan on wearing this spring (if it ever gets warm in frigid New England), this is a nice alternative shade to have.

Why, Origins, why? Why must you package a pretty good product (blush in gel form) in the worst possible packaging? Coralberry is a new shade, and it is a very pretty, very wearable peachy-pink color on me. It would look good on neutral-based, cool-based, or warm-based people, imho. However, the packaging is miserable. Even if I'm not _touching_ the tube, it oozes out, wasting a lot. If I even _look_ at the tube, product oozes out. Come on, Origins -- not acceptable! I really want to recommend this product, but I just can't, because the packaging is so darn frustrating.
