One phrase - POS (peice of S%@!)
This product is basically photo finish with bright pink tint that goes on loud but then fades. It also balls up, pills up and flakes if you try to layer the color or even add a little on. Waste of money!

I like this a lot, although as mentioned it's a little tricky to use. Just a teeny little dab'll do ya & don't wait around to rub it in. I am extremely fair-skinned & this makes me look really lovely. Great buy!

I won that product on welovebeauty.com too! although I like the colr it gives my cheeks, I feel like it is hard to use because it is easy to apply too much of it and hard to take off.

I won this product on that new daily beauty blog: welovebeauty.com and I have to say that I loved it. I think it would be most natural on people with olive skin, but I am pale and I like it. The trick is to not use too much and to blend it in. I love the silky feeling and it blends in to look like a natural flush versus a powder sitting on top of your skin. I think it would be nice with a highlighter on top.

This product sux! I tried this on and it went on bright pink on my cheeks. It doesnt work with your skin tone, it turns bright pink on everyone and looks so unatural! This product is a joke, and it seems like this would totally clog your pours. This product is going back to Sephora.

I tried this on at Sephora, thinking it sounded like a cool innovation. I'm fair, and it turned an obnoxiously bright pink on my skin. It had similar results on my friends.

i'm kind of on the fence about this stuff. i like it, but i don't think its really worth the hype and to me its a little overpriced. it has a very silky texture, just like smashbox's primer, so at first i was worried this would break me out (like the primer), but it doesn't. you only need a very little bit, like about the size of a pen's tip for each cheek, and i just swirl it in a circular motion on the apples of my cheeks. its a little hard to get used to because its very easy to use too much. i have very fair skin, and on me, just like everyone else it seems, it turns a bright pink fuschia, however, if applied sheer enough, it does look very pretty, just not exactly what i would call a natural flush-which is why i lowered the rating to a 3. it is pretty much the same pink color on everyone, which is not what they claim it to be. so, i'll use up the tube again, however i don't think i'll be buying it again because its really doesn't do what it says it will.

Ohhhkay,,,, for me personally it was like O-No. It did next to nothing for me-
HOWEVER for my beautifully porcelined faced pal, it lookes amazing. Me I have golden skin w/ lots of freckels & just no good, the color was blah, the texture was too....too....slicky (?) ,& it settled right into my 30 year old pores....not a fan, specially for 26 bucks. Nuh uh. I reccomend asking for a nice sample before commiting, I really was hopeful, but just no. P.S. The packaging "from the future" was really, really cheesy. Like the tubes you put your deposits in @ the bank driver thru , only less cute-

I bought this since it it claimed it looked natural and would make you look like you are blushing naturally. The blush comes out of the tube clear and turns bright pink when you put it on. I found that it did not work for me it was too pink and looked fushia on me. The packaging was also hard to use since if you squeeze too hard too much product comes out all at once. The price was a little high since the tube is soo small. overall i would not buy it again the colour looked awful on me not at all natural.

I was nervous about this product after reading the reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised! I really like this product a lot. It does take a little bit of trial and error, but after you figure it out it's easy enough to use. After some blending, the product gives me a great glow that lasts nearly all day. The tube gives a generous supply, especially since it takes so little of the product to get the desired look. Would definitely repurchase!

I am loving the unique concept of Smashbox's new gel/stain blush. I am very glad I got to play with it in Sephora before purchasing it, because O-Glow is trickey to use, and it takes a few tries before getting it right. The big things to remember are that a little goes a long way, and to work quickly. When I first tried it out, I put way too much on my cheeks, and ended up looking like I had a high fever...really flushed, not flattering! I tried to remove it with a dry tissue, but needed m/u remover to get rid of it. Then I tried again, using the tiniest dab of the O-Glow. I must have waited too long before applying to my cheeks, b/c before I knew it, my fingers were stained pink, and hardly anything came off on my cheeks. I once again, used the m/u remover, this time on my fingers, and decided to give it one more try. Finally, I got it right, and the results were so pretty and natural! Although it initially looked bright pink, once I blended it in, it became the color my cheeks naturally become when I blush. The color is a rosey-pink, that is incredibly flattering. The texture is silky and matte, almost like Smashbox's primer. Great new product idea!

I like this more than I expected after reading the reviews here. I tried it in-store then returned to buy it the next day. :) A little goes a long way, it's hygenic and easy to apply! It gave me a pretty rosey-pink flush that lasted about 4-5 hours. I would have given this a 5 rating if it lasted right through the day.

This blush is fabulous, if you manage your expectations and learn to use it properly. Let's start with the packaging- I really like that it is a small squeeze tube because 1) it's portable and 2) it's hygenic. I really hate a cream blush that you have to dip into the pot with your fingers because that contaminates the product and stick blushes can be rather hard to blend. The trick to application is to squeeze a small amount onto your finger, spread evenly between both index fingers, and blend, blend, blend QUICKLY on the apples of your cheeks fading out towards the hairline. If you do this, I promise you will see a fresh, healthy, natural glow that lasts for hours! I also like the skin caring ingredients and the smoothness it leaves. Definitely my HG!

I loved this product. It is a little tricky at first, but easy to figure out. FYI, it takes about the same amount of time apply this as it does to apply regular blush, once you figure it out. I usually apply mine on top of my foundation and powder. You really only need the smallest amount, and if its spotty or too light then just apply a little more. It has the same texture as the Smashbox foundation primer (if you have ever used it). This is the most natural looking blush I have ever used. The color looks really bright and scary at first, but trust me when I say it blends in very well. Also, after I put it on, I take a large powder brush and swipe it over the O-Glow, this helps blend any visible edges. I don't know what the bad reviews are all about, but I loved this product. It is easy to apply and very natural looking, it just takes a couple of tries to figure it out.

I'm very glad this was a try-before-you-buy experience at Sephora. The idea is totally cool, but not really as futuristic as Smashbox claims. In fact, 50-cent mood lipsticks do the same thing and turn the same color: fuchsia. When I experienced this product first dyeing my hand fuchsia and then dyeing my cheeks fuchsia, which is NOT a natural color for me (warm-toned PPP), I left it on the shelf.

I'm sorry that this product didn't work for some of the ladies who've tried it. Fortunately for me, this product works great. I've been looking for something like this and I was delighted when I discovered it on Sephora during one of my browsing session at work. As I age (although I'm barely over 30), my natural glow and flush is disappearing. This product does the treak. For those of you who want to give this product one more try or for those of you who are trying to decide whether to by this product or not (give it a try), try the following:
1. Apply your daily facial treatment on first but not the moisturizer.
2. Apply the O-Glow. I use nail head size drop. A little goes a long way. Spread it and blend it well. You will not see the true color right away so don't keep applying it. Wipe your finger because it does kind of stain it.
3. Apply your moisturize and then apply a smaller amount of it again.
4. Apply your foundation. If you want to, you can apply a small amount over the foundation again.
5. Apply powder as usual.
I get lovely rosey cheeks that lasts all day using this method.

i was so excited when i got this blush, only to be slightly disappointed. i was testing it out on my hand and it was turning it a really bright fuschia skin, which looked totally artificial on my fair skin. so, i tried it out on my face. when you first put it on, the color starts to darken immediately, and you'd think that you'd be left with blotched of color...but if you really rub it in, it lightens quite a bit and spreads nicely. the color on me lasted all day. the reason i was disappointed was that it was really hard to apply. i always have trouble putting on blush and making it look natural, but this was just way too much trouble. also, the texture is totally weird. when you're rubbing it in, you can barely feel it, so it feels like you're just rubbing your face. but then you start to see the color spread and realize its the blush you're also spreading. its hard to explain. but, i probably wouldn't buy this again. its was too expensive for something that takes too much effort to look natural.

I like this product. I read the reviews about it wearing off and comming back at unexpected times (like during/after a workout) and i was skeptical. But so far for me, I really like it. It genuinely does give me a glow, and it is pretty natural looking, but I mean, natural like I have glowing skin naturaly. It lasted like normal blush for me, so it lasted about 4 hours before I felt like I need to reapply it, which is what most cream type blushes last on me. I guess my overall opinion is, this product truly seems to react diffrently with everyone's skin, so if you can get a sample first, I probally would. But it's worth at least trying, as in my case it's a really great product. Also you only need a tiny bit, so I have a feeling it will last a really long time.

I agree; this is unfortunately going back to Sephora....I wanted to like it too, but it only lasted about 20 minutes before disappearing. Not worth the $$. Too bad; cool idea anyway.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
this stuff is weird. the idea behind it is really cool, and the lady sold me on it at sephora, but once i got home i was kinda.. eh about it. it stained my hands, and when applied it made me look like i was dressing up as a doll for halloween (waaay pink). i really didnt like it and returned it the next day. definitely not worth $26!
