I was attracted to this by the gorgeous gradient effect and was hoping I could use that to achieve a gentle gradient of highlight and subtle build up of colour on the cheeks.
Unfortunately the formula of this blush let me way down. The colours are just delightful, matte yellow to medium and deeper pink, the lightest two thirds make for beautiful highlights gradually blending into each other, or it would do if I could get it to apply nicely. I don't know what it is, I just can't get a good application out of this. It's got a very stiff and dry texture in the pan, and I find I need to use a denser brush to pick enough product up, and then I risk applying too much product, which makes it look terrible. I much prefer to build cheek colour up gradually, by using a lighter, fluffier brush and adding more as needed to get the right coverage, rather than over applying. I just can't get this to apply like that, if I go with a light brush, nothing shows up, even if I try to build the colour up in several layers. It just seems like the brush doesn't pick any colour up unless it is a dense brush and is really worked right into the product due to the stiff texture. If I go with a denser brush, it picks colour up a little better and therefore it shows up more on the skin, but it is uneven and just doesn't blend out very well at all.
All three colours mixed together makes for a nice mid tone yellow based pink, but it's fairly unremarkable, and given the dry stiffness it doesn't blend on the skin all that well. You can get an even dispersion of product on the brush when swirled through all the colours well enough, but once it's on the skin i just can't get it to blend out or apply evenly. It just doesn't work for me in the end, using it as separate colours or using it as one swirled together.

This blush gives my cheeks a sweet rosy color. This is my favorite spring time blush because it gives such a pure and flawless look that looks natural. I do not like wearing tons of makeup and try to wear as little as possible. I apply a thin layer of foundation and then Peach Nuance on my cheek bones. It looks so elegant and classy and does not overdo it at all- i hate a harsh makeup look. If anyone is looking for a new spring makeup collection then this should be part of it!

My favorite blush! The absolute perfect flush for my light medium skin tone and Irish red undertones. Used it for years. One side of the compact is a nude tone and the other is a bright peach so you can swirl your brush to get as much color as you want. Goes on and stays on. Love it!

This blush attracted me because of how it has neat the gradient effect looks. It's a gorgeous dark peach that fades into a lighter peach color. I love almost all Estee Lauder products. I'm a huge fan of the brand. The packaging never disappoints me. So glamourous and the compact is sturdy with a nice sized mirror. The color is the reason why I would not repurchase this particular shade. It is too light for my skintone so it barely shows up unless I really pack it on. To give credit to this product, it does build color nicely and there's no shimmer. I just don't have that kind of time in the mornings and I usually go for a more dramatic blush. This is great for a natural look or even for the summer. I would try it in another color possibly. Is this discontinued? Just curious... I don't see it on the Estee Lauder site anymore.

Love this blush - a great coral-peach color. With the 2-tone I can make the color pinker or more yellow-peachy depending on my look for the day. I have very pale skin with freckles and this is a beautiful color on me. My mom pawned it off on me (I don't think she'd ever used it), and I'm so glad she did - I'd buy it again in a heart beat!

I've had this blush for what seems like forever, as a colour is a lovely matte peach that complements my natural skin tone.
it's not a WOW colour but a nice one to have, I took off two points because colour payoff is not so great, you need to go in 2 or 3 times to get the colour and for the price I'd expect better then that.
I use this blush often however even after 2 years (I think, might be even longer!) the palate looks like it has never been touched O_o
I'm not going to repurchase this simply because I have a feeling I'll never reach the bottom of this pan.. EVER!!!

This isn't my favorite blush but I like it and will use until it's finished but I won't be repurchasing. This is supposed to be a color dupe for the extremely hyped MAC Ripe Peach ombre blush. I have both and I'd have to agree but while the lighter sides of each are identical the darker side of this one is a lot more pink. It's a very warm peachy pink and compliments my warm NC35 complexion very nicely. However I took off 2 lippies because the pigmentation is not good for the price. Maybe for lighter skin tones this would be pigmented but for me I have to dip back into the pan 2-3 times before reaching a nice color. Also this is a matte blush and although it's very smooth and not chalky it has the tendency to apply streaky. For the price it should have a lot more color payoff and blend seamlessly. I like the packaging it's very luxe but like I said I will find a dupe for the color and will not repurchase this or any of the Nuance blushes.

I just bought this product for the first time and I LOVE IT! the colour pay off is amazing! a little goes a long way and you can really build it to an intense colour if you wish.. Its it matte which I also love but it doesnt appear dull at all. I have olive skin so the colour looks really pretty. Definitely would buy again in more colours!

I am cooled toned so it didn't lOok quite right on me...too orange for my nw23 skin. However it should be pretty close to MAC seeing as though estee lauder company owns MAC.

I've been searching for a color like this in a matte peach blush for YEARS. I believe Peach Nuance is a LE from a collection launched in Spring '10, (don't quote me on that...). Peach Nuance is disppearing quickly from stores and online retailers, (it's not available on Lauder's website), but I was able to buy a compact at Nordstrom. Of course, I LOVE it; being LE and all. It looks natural, and it evens out my skintone, plus it adds a "glow" that's not shimmer or shine. Best of all, it's not pink. Many peach blushes get either too pink (or too beige) on my skin, ruining the effect of the peach tones. This is gorgeous - just perfect for flattering olive/gold undertones. None of Lauder's other blushes come close to this color when it's on my skin, and the other blushes in this line are very "one dimensional". The graduated peachy sunlight to rich coral tones of Peach Nuance are effective for making my skin look radiant, and this blush doesn't look flat on my skin. (Why don't more makeup lines use multiple tones in their blushes?) If you happen to be looking for a truly "peach" blush, rush to Nordstrom, or maybe Macy's, and see if they have any Peach Nuances left in stock! It's perfect for summertime.

This is a beautiful and very feminine colour. I wear this when I want to wear my coral colored in-your face lipstick. I love all the nuance blushes. My other favourite from this line is nude nuance. The quality is amazing.

i bought this thinking it was a dupe for MAC's Ripe Peach blush ombre....IT'S NOT!!! it's a beautiful colour, none-the-less, but it is NOT a dupe. it looks like it is, but when applied, it's not similar to it at all. either way, this is a nice, smooth peachy blush that gives me a healthy glow. it's nothing i'd "OMG!" and rave about, but it's not that bad, either. i use my own blush brush though, because the one provided is just too tiny :P

Love this blush! The texture is silky, it is soooo finely milled. I have to admit I don't normally use this only as a blush though. I am a NC20 with golden undertones. However, I naturally have some peachy-pink in my skin, and I always find that when i wear foundation (with more coverage, that is) my skin looks kind of dull, even though I did get the right shade. To my suprise I found I can use this blush all over my face (yes, I know that is a no-no!) if I apply it very sheerly with a kabuki brush. It makes my skin glow!
The blush can be layered, and you probably also have to layer it if you want your cheeks to look flushed since it is very sheer. The color is peach, but it looks like it has some coral in it too, at least on me.
It's quite expensive for a blush imo, but you get a decent amount of product. I liked the packaging, it is quite stylish, but I hated the brush. Somehow it smelled really bad and made my skin really itch. Doesn't matter though, I'd still repurchase! :)

I had no idea this was a MAC dupe lol but im glad i found that out since i liked that particular blush but never bought it. I had eyeballing this blush everytime i went into my CCO but never got it because of the price ($18). Well today i said WTH and picked it up. I love it so much <3, the design is really cool (light to dark) and you get a good sized amount too. The coloring isn't peachy on me, its a tad coral which is ok because thats what i was hunting for anyways.

I have to say just how amazing this blush is.
I was skeptical to spend $27 CAD on a blush, but it is totally worth it.
Peach nuance is incredibly natural looking on my ghostly pale (neutral) skin. It adds a flush of color that looks so pretty, very soft and brightens my whole face. It gives that 'lit from within' look, I swear I feel 5 years younger when I put this on.
I actually use the little brush it comes with to apply, I find it grabs the perfect amount of color. The blush blends so beautifully and easily it's hard to mess up.
I would describe the finish as exactly the same as MAC's beauty powders from venomous villains collection. They have very soft light reflecting pigments that create a natural looking glowy finish.
I don't even care about finding ripe peach now, I'm very happy with peach nuance :)

The color is beautiful! I'm not sure why I keep buying peachy blushes if they don't look very good on me, but they're just too pretty! The texture of the blush is very soft, the packaging is gorgeous and the color payoff is good. I want to buy more of Estee Lauder blushes! If you are tan I think this would look great, though I am very fair and I use it very sheerly and it works fine.

I was looking high and low for the perfect dupe for Ripe peach. I can't compare because I never got a chance to try it.. : ( looked everywhere! BUT Imo.. This is the perfect shade of peach. Its beautiful gives me an instant glow~

I got this recently at my CCO and I LOVE it. I had wanted Mac's Ripe Peach Blush Ombres for a while but when I saw swatches of this being a dupe for RP on temptalia.com I fell in love with this one. I like it because I was honestly a little bit scared of Mac's RP being too orange, this one has a little bit more of a pink tone to it, it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm NC20 for reference and this looks so natural and flattering on me. I had no issues with it wearing off while using a primer and I especially love that it comes with a mirror in the compact for on the go use. This is easily one of my favorite blushes (however, as a blush fiend, I say that about quite a few blushes).

I have to admit, I did buy this after the super hype for MAC Ripe Peach. I didn't want to shell out the cash for Ripe Peach, and I saw this at my local CCO for $18.25 so I picked it up. The color is gorgeous on my tanned summer skin, and is very soft and pigmented. I like that it comes with a brush even though it's pretty awful (as most built-in brushes are), it's still nice that you have that option if you're on-the-go. I have to take a lippie away for staying power, as it did fade away but otherwise this blush is spot on! It may not be an *exact* dupe for Ripe Peach, but I wouldn't pay three times the price for something so comparable. Buy this instead!
PROS: Gorgeous, flattering peach color, soft, pigmented, blendable, built in brush
CONS: Staying power, probably won't suit cooler skintones

Peach Nuance is a very flattering peachy coral blush. Love how I can apply this blush for different intensities. I can make it wearable with a bright eye makeup look, or make it darker if I want to really showcase a nice cheek color.
So glad I swapped for this blush!
