The first time I bought this blush, I swirled my normal amount onto my blush brush and swiped my cheek lightly. The ensuing gasp of horror sent my fellow running into the bathroom to see what was wrong.

Now, I am super pale, but this blush is practically neon on my cheeks. The two darker colors are so intense that the tiniest dab suffices - great pigmentation, but just a horrific color on me. Just very... unnatural coral. Apparent "she's wearing sooo much blush"-blush.

Be warned if you're pale - but it makes GREAT stage makeup, theater ladies - not too much sparkle.

The lightest color is a pleasant - but not blush-worthy - pink. I do use it for highlighting, but if I tried to contour with the other colors I'd be right out of an 80s fever dream.

This is a great blush for young ladies who aren't looking to break the bank for good quality. I loved the varied colors however I only needed to use the darkest color on the apples of my cheeks. I also loved that I could use the illuminating color in the corners of my eye and also as a highlighter under the arch of my eyebrow after filing them in with a brow pencil. So much usage for this product. It really gets the job done.
Like all makeup nothing is perfect and the only bad thing about it is that you have to reapply every few hours or so if you're out for a long time. Good buy =) and also blends well on medium/sandy/tan shades

For some reason I always avoided peach anything,, BUT this was in my color match bit so I picked it up and wow.. I do have have instant cheekbones.. and here is how I use it,, I take the little brush that comes with it and when i'm making a fish face I brush the darkest shade in the hollow indent bit and sweep up towards my ears and blend a lil with my fingers and then I take the lightest shade and making the same fish face brush it on the very top rims of my cheek bones the arch and lastly I take a big fluffy brush and smiling brush the middle shade on my apples and up towards my hairline/ears , it looks fantastic and the colors are buildable if you like your blush lighter or darker , I had been using bronzer for the indents but with this it's the contour , highlighter and main blush in one pan so easy to use and carry.

Really not bad, just not right for me--I'm 43 and don't care for the shimmer. I bought it on a trip when I forgot to pack my makeup, and picked it up at a drugstore to have a little color on my face. I'll use it up--pretty color, just need a light hand. For reference, I find that Mac's Blushbaby is ideal. It gives a little color and looks like you're not wearing makeup. If they took the shimmer out, I would probably buy it again for the hue. It lasts well.
**UPDATE: I now use this with a swipe across all three colors and get a beautiful peach-hued highlight. No contoured cheekbones, but it certainly does add some life (shimmery color) to the face. I like it!
***UPDATE: This has now become my "Waking Ned Devine" facial cosmetic. It truly gives your skin some "oomph" when you are really tired (which is most the time for me.) Again, I advise not to use this as a contour, but just as a highlighter-type glow. It is truly magnificent. I am therefore upgrading it to 5 lipsticks. Go get it, girls!

Peach looks beautiful on my fair skin, so I gave this blush trio a try. The shades are beautiful! You receive a soft pink, a peach, and a coral color. These colors are build able, and add a slight shimmer, which adds a beautiful luminous glow. They should make these colors in cream blushes! They're fantastic!!!!

Get blushes from this series instead of the cheekers much better quality.You won't regret it.

I wasn't going to get this after having a crappy experience with a cheekers blush the w eek before (natural rose had no pigmentation) but my store had this on liquidation I thought I would give it a try.

These are amazingly pigmented and they don't rub off .They are very buildible so if you think a color isn't dark enough you add more without having it look cakey.I don't use all three together as the darkest just looks odd in the hollow of my cheeks but with all the shade choices you should find one that will look just great on you

This is a nice blush at an affordable price. The only problem I have with it is the shades didn't work for me. My skin is very pale, and the Peach color looked orangey on me, so I had to give it away.

NC30 / 35 here. This blush is quite pigmented and shows up with only a few swipes, so that's good :)

I think the middle color is really the only wearable shade in terms of blush. It looks pretty, although definitely a lot more pink than peach, I don't even think it should be called peach. It's a very neutral looking pink.

The darker, it works somewhat as a blush if you're tanner, not very good for contouring.

The lightest color is good for a subtle highlight.

All in all, I recommend this.

I really love this product. The color is perfect for my skintone. I use the middle color and the lightest color for above my cheekbone and under my eyebrow, I even use the light color to highlight my cupids bow. The price is great, the only reason I rated the packaging lower is because they are such tiny palettes, they really need to make the compact more spacious. I will be buying this again when I run out.
