I first got this as a small trial size in a BE cheek kit like four years ago. It is a beautiful, natural looking glow when use with a light hand and blending. Works best when use with a mineral brush btw.

I had high hopes for radiances. I ordered three based off reviews here (bare, rose and pure). I intended to use them as eyeshadows. Rose Radiance ok, I definitely don't see myself putting it all over my face or using it on my cheeks as a highlighter, it just seems to have no staying power that way. I use it as an all over wash on my eye lids after applying an eye primer and it works but it is not a multi tasker imho.

I apply this lightly as a blush, then use leftover on different parts of my face to give me an all-over rosey glow. It's very natural and subtle. I love it. =]

I got this in a mini size along with Bare, Pure, and Warm (with the full-size brush, all for $10 from my local BE outlet store!), and Rose is definitely my favorite (followed by Bare). It's a perfect blush color or highlighter and if used in moderation, I haven't had an issue with looking too glittery when used as an all-over face color like the box it came in said it was to be used as. With the small amount needed to get the pretty rosy sheen, I may be using the mini size for a long while!

I have had this for 2-3 years. A beautiful color but when I applied to cheeks was just looked like pink glitter on my face. I did like ok when I dipped lip balm in this. From all the good reviews I am going to give this another try.

LOVE this. My favorite blush by far, looks fabulous!

This came as part of the BE Renegade Chic pallette. That small jar is going to last me for a long time at the rate I'm using it - a pinhead-sized amount, worked thoroughly into the brush bristles and applied, is enough.
This is a good neutral-to-cool pink shade and is very flattering on me. Another thing I like is that it LASTS on my skin. I sometimes have trouble with blushes fading/disappearing on me halfway through the day, so I tend to layer powder over cream blush. This product does NOT disappear! I applied it at 7 AM today and it's still going strong.
I only wish the jar dispenser didn't release so much product every time the jar is tipped over or whatever. You really only need a tiny amount at once and so I find myself dipping out tiny bits from the HUGE accumulation in the top of the jar.

I LOVE this blush! Rose radience is the absolute perfect blush for me! It has shimmer in it, which I love, and if you use it right (only use a very small amount at a time) you will end up with the perfect rosy glow :) I will be using this blush probably forever :) the only thing I would change is the packaging, I definitely think bare minerals could re-think there packaging because it is very hard to get only a small amount onto the brush, and I always spill it :( but that being said, even with the fact that I spill it every time I use it, it still lasts FOREVER! it is definitely worth the money, and I will continue to re-purchase :)

I'm moving away from Bare Minerals foundations (Bismuth = irritated skin), but this is my HG blush!
I'm SUPER fair skinned, and this light, sheer pink blush EXACTLY mimics the color that I naturally blush...it's subtle, natural looking, has a hint of sparkle that catches the light beautifully...it's just perfect for me.
Since I've moved away from Bare Minerals foundations, I've tried moving away from this product too...but I just can't bring myself to part with it...why mess with success? :-)

I had this for over two years and didn't use it because it just didn't do a thing for me. I thought it had tooo much glitter. Then, I left BE for a while. Since returning to BE, I've been going thru my makeup train and found this one. And, since my purchased a MAC blush, I've found the perfect spots to place my blush that looks absolutely natural. So, I tried this today and my co-workers, including the men, remarked on how fresh I looked. I had on very sheer Carmindy foundation, this and followed by BE's Veil. It's also nice as a lip color for going to the market. I tried it this evening. I didnt' want to put on my day lipstick and just wanted a lip moisturizer. So, I dipped my shea butter lip balm on this and it gave me just the right amount of rose color on my lips. Very natural. Arrgggggggg...I love this and my MAC blush...what shall I use on my cheeks tomorrow! I'm so loving these types of dilemma.

Awesome for a great flush of color to the apples of the cheek. This color does not come with the starter kit and that is a shame because it is a very flattering shade. Its matte that can look natural but very buildable if you want that "Look I'm wearing blush look".
Like a mineral make up you have to be very careful because it can make a mess. I just wish they put a few less holes so that less product comes through the little filter.

I really loved the color this product gave me. My cheeks were gorgeous, with just a hint of color and it made my face look healthy and very lovely.
Shame that I'll never be buying it again.
It took me months to get clear skin before I started using makeup products again. I only used concealer for the dark spots and then I began using this product. At first, I loved it, as I mentioned in the above. But then my face started breaking out in tiny bumps all over my cheeks, my chin, and parts of my forehead. I was very confused because I thought bareMinerals was supposed to be good for your skin? But it couldn't be any other product because I'd already been using concealer during when my face was clear and it didn't cause me any breakouts. The only new thing I'd added on to my makeup routine was this. So after I researched its ingredients and read many, many reviews, it only confirmed my suspicions.
Apparently, I must be allergic to some ingredient in this product, most likely Bismuth oxychloride. I usually have oily skin, especially in the summer, and I'm rather prone to breakouts. Just to be safe, if you have sensitive skin I wouldn't use this product or any other bareMinerals powder if it contains Bismuth oxychloride. (The mineral veil seemed fine - didn't include it in the ingredients.)
The color is pretty, but it just doesn't mix with not-so-pretty cheeks.

I use bareMinerals foundation, as well as a few other mineral foundations. I like to mix it up sometimes, as I get bored with the same ol products everyday. So when I use a yellowy toned foundation, such as bareMinerals, I use this, as it is very pink, to neutralize some of the yellowy-ness. It's exactly as described by BE, a pink with a touch of pearl.

I love this soo much. If I could only have one m/u item for the rest of my life..it would be rose radiance. I got the eyeshadow size...3 years ago? And it's still half full (granted...I did get into NARS blushes for a while too..)
The only thing I despise about BE stuff is their stupid swirl tap buff in the cap thing. you should see my foundation caps....there's a pretty serious layer of foundation buffed into the cap! But I digress..
What I do is shake some of this into a ceramic bowl and swirl my blush brush in that instead of in the rose radiance cap (which would be freakin' impossible) I love this product...it really wakes up my face. I even put some on my browbone if i'm not wearing eyeshadow...it doesn't sound like it would look good, I know, but it does!!

this is the prettiest pink, i use it on the apples of my cheeks and it gives such an innocent look. i'm currently on the hunt for a blush this color, so if you know of one please share the wealth.
anyway, i'm giving this two stars because it does not last, no matter what i do. i've put it on just over primer with no foundation, nothing keeps this on for more than an hour. i even have ghostly pale skin so in theory it should be easier to see it on me, but no such luck. one hour, tops, and it's gone. :( shame, it would be my favorite blush if not for that.

Preeeeety! Love this blush!
I would definitely repurchase, but I can't imagine ever running out! You get a LOT for the money.
I wish the holes in the sifter were a bit finer- almost all of the product rests on top of the sifter, rather than under it, which could be messy if my 3-yo gets ahold of it!
Otherwise, it's just a pretty, lovely pink. Rather delicate and innocent-looking. Perfect.

i have very pale skin and this gives me a nice rosy glow on my cheeks. Very dewy and fresh!

This is a very natural and gorgegous looking blush for me (reference- LLL with yellow undertones) It cost 18 dollars and it comes in this sifer jar. It doesnt look like blush at all, more like a rosy glow. Like I just got out of the shower. Very lovely. I took one lippie off bc of the price.

I adore rose radiance - I use this as my blush and on my fair skin, it gives me a lovely rosy glow without looking overly shiny (which, thanks, I can be greasy enough on my own).
Am I crazy or are there two versions of this out there?? I went to re-purchase this and when I got it home it looked like clown makeup! Different color - darker pink and super big chunks of gold glitters. My current rose radiance does not look like this at all. Did I get a mismarked product? Hope so - back to Ulta I guess!

I really wasn't impressed with this highlighter. It mostly just gave me a very slight pink flush like a light blush. I like highlighters that are more glowy looking, like NARS Albatross. I think the main thing I didn't like about this was the packaging. The little sifter jar is super messy and with the loose powder it is hard to control how much comes out.
