This is a pretty blush, but it is kind of hard. I had to keep swirling my brush to pick up enough product to apply. I swatched it on my hand, and for me, it is too similar to Milani Luminoso and Nars Luster. I am not sorry I purchased this, but I probably would have been better off with Taupe, if it had been available.

I like this blush but I wouldn't say I LOVED it...

The colour is very pretty and works quite well as a bronzer for me as I have fair skin. Gives my skin a nice bronzey glow. BUT this doesn't last all day and within few hours I can hardly see it anymore. May just be my skin type though.

I would definately consider repurchasing this though :)

I was afraid this would be a glitter bomb but when my NYX blush in Stone finally ran out (and is now discontinued!), I decided to give it a shot. It turns out it is not glittery on at all. It's not super pigmented, like pretty much all NYX powder products in my experience, but with blush that's not a bad thing (at least IMHO). The color is buildable so that you don't end up looking like a clay-cheeked clown. The color is a nice warm, brownish peach that is a flattering shade for my pale skin, with or without bronzer.

The texture is not super smooth or as finely milled as some HE blushes, but it blends in well enough and doesn't lend itself to a lot of fallout. Has not caused any skin issues. For $6, I'm pleased. It's not a replacement for Stone, which could also fill in for contouring to some extent (this is too peachy for that), but it's a good one to create a pretty Fall flush.

This is my consummate summer blush. I'm NC44 (normally)/NW43 (summer) and find that this blush gives the most subtle, beautiful golden glow. I especially like wearing it after I've gotten sun touched and when my hair is highlighted or has been lightened by the sun. Absolutely beautiful!

This blush gives me the prettiest bronzy glow. These blushes are great for the price and are an inexpensive way to try new blush colors :)

I just bought this blush 3 days ago and have already fallen in love with it. I am a 7.5 in mac match master and I only use this on top of other blushes sort of like a blush highlighter. I love the sheen it gives me and it lasts all day on my oily skin. The glow picks up nice on camera with or without flash and because this blush goes with so many other colors I will be wearing it every single day. What I do is just apply my regular blush a little bit under the apples of my cheek and then blend back to my hair line, and slightly on top/above my blush I apply this lightly until the shimmer I want for day or night is achieved. It doesn't overpower my other blush color and it looks especially great with mauve and orange colored blushes (that's all i really wear) I bought this at target for $4.99. Not expensive at all and I want to purchase a backup just in case. This isn't at all powdery and it's super easy to work with. On dark skin it's amazing.

I saw someone use this in an online tutorial. They mentioned that they used it when they wanted something more "neutral"...essentially they used it because it did not draw attention away from the areas of focus (eyes, lips, etc.). Now that we are entering the holiday season I want blushes that give me some definition, but don't scream that they are there. I want something that will play quietly in the background. This blush does that.

It looks very orange in the package, but it does come out quite neutral on my fair skin. It looks great with just about anything I've put it with and goes nicely with bronzer. This is my first NYX blush and I am impressed with it. I own a lot of blushes already so I probably won't be buying too many more, but if they have unique shades I would consider buying them.

The color lasts all day on me and is easy to use. Doesn't look to shiny, even though it does have some sheen to it. Looks really great with gold eyeshadows. I am overall really happy with this purchase. If I had to pick something I didn't like about the product I would say the packaging. It is hard to open. I don't mind that it is small because I only once in my life hit pan on a blush. I use them so very little. So no complaints about the amount. I just wish that danged lid was easier to open, but in the end that is such a small complaint. :)

This blush is worth every penny. I like it way more than the Tarte blushes. It is pigmented and lasts allll day. The color is like a bronze/copper.
Use Sparingly.... I would not use any bronzer at the same time.

I don't like this at all, its just too glittery on my NC30 skin so much that it reflects light. The colour was also quite deep on me like almost bronze, I was expecting more of light peach bronze. It just doesn't perform the way it was described, a golden rose colour. I went out and bought Nars Luster and I soooo prefer luster over this. For one luster does not appear like a discoball on me, second, it gives my face such a wonder glow that I love.

This is hands down my favourite shimmer blush and looks awesome on my tanned skin tone as it lends such a natural glow to my cheeks. It is a beautiful peachy bronze colour with golden shimmer and lasts all day on my oily skin. I find that it functions as both a blush and highlighter, so I don't need a highlighter with it.

Terracotta is similar to NARS Luster/MAC Sunbasque/MAC Margin blushes but is a much cheaper alternative to those. It's a permanent staple in my blush collection and I've bought a back up as I don't want to ever be without it.
