Beautiful cream blush. Not exactly sheer but it looks incredibly natural. Be careful not to use too much - a tiny dab goes a very long way. Good staying power, also.

After reading all the reviews I decided to get a test sample. It's true - an awsome product. I'm for sure getting the full size.

I have never had blush look good for so long. Very natural-looking, after applying powder over it, looks like I'm glowing. Great stuff!

Illuminare bandwagon here I come!! *jump* ok, so I bought a sample of this based completely in its glorious perfect Pville ratings...and I was not disappointed!! I love cream blushes but they never work perfectly on me...either my skin won't accept it or it gets eat up or smudged off before half the day's over. Well, NOT THIS BABY!! Florentine fair's a lovely muted soft pink on my fair asian skin, contrasts nicely with my black eyes/hair and though I"d prefer it be a little brighter for that "healthy flushed" look, it's a great everyday blush color. The thing that amazes me the most is how LONG-LASTING this cream blush is, it goes on really light and seems to adhere to the skin, giving a really natural look right away. I dust a light powder over it and the color looks like it's coming from within the skin and lasts ALL day, seriously, 12 hours coverage. So far I haven't had any breakouts from it, but *knock on wood*, I've only been using it a few times.
BTW this color IMO is very similar to Cargo's summerside colortube, so if ur interested try that, it's a great creme blush too!

Great stuff! Wonderfully subtle color that passes the rearview mirror test and lasts all day.

Florentine Fair is a muted rosy-pink that brightens my NC15 complexion without being too dark or clown-like.Illuminaré Perfect Color Blush, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways (with apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning):
I love thee to for the healthy flush and glow You give me, when I'm feeling ghastly pale.
I love thee for lasting all day on my oily skin.
I love thee purely, as I swap away those other blushes that accentuate my pores and imperfections.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With all other cream blushes.
I believe I shall but love thee better when I purchase a full size
And, if Illuminaré is kind,
I shall never have to mourn your discontinuation.

I bought the tiny sample size on www.whosthefairest.com for $2.50
It looks like a very different color in the tube than what shows up on your cheeks. Which is a good thing! It looks fleshy in the tube, but more pink on the cheeks.This blush is simply gorgeous!
This cream blush in a tube creates a soft, pink matte glow. It goes on very smoothly and has great staying power. My cheeks have never looked so flawless. I will buy the full size when my tiny sample runs out. Use very sparingly. A little does go a long way.
*UPDATE* I swam laps as exercise for over 30 minutes and this blush still was on my face as perfect as when I first put it on! Wow!

Really beautiful colour. Will definitely buy when my sample runs out.

I bought this product after reading the raves here. I can't believe how beautiful it is!! It's a liquid blush that is creamy and rosy. When you apply it you only need the tiniest amount - it absolutely looks like you have a natural blush. It also makes your cheeks look flawless. The look I achieve with this blush is exactly what I've been trying to do all along. You know the very first time you tried makeup; when you thought you'd look like like girls in the makeup ads... then you sadly realize it's not gonna happen??! - Well, using this blush comes very close.
It's worth a try - on the illuminare website they have samples for sale. I'm LOVING their liquid foundation (made to be paired w/ this blush)too.

wow, this stuff is awesome! It's easy to blend, and gives a very natural blush look. LOVE IT!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love all of the Illuminare products I have tried and this is no exception. The blushes are amazing. Extremely well pigmented, easy to blend, and unbelievably long wearing- they really stay put. These are the best cream blushed I have ever tried and I would definitely repurchase them.

I got a sample of this and was pleasantlly surprised by it! A soft rose blush is an accurate description. At first I put way to much on, didnt realize you only need a small amount. Took forever to get it off, water alone did not do it, had to use makeup remover. This stuff lasted all day for a natural looking blush. I even worked out in it and it stayed on 10 hours! No streaking or fading. No breakouts either. Excellent product and makes me want to try other Illluminaire products!

I've used both the Portofino Porcelain and the Florentine Fair, and love them both. It provides a beautiful glow to my skin that looks so natural. So little is used that the .5 oz tube should last forever. Once you try this, you'll be hooked! You can purchase this at www.illuminarecosmetics.com or www.whosthefairest.com.

I love this natural rose colored cream blush. Just a tiny amount is needed and it lasts a long time on my skin. I also like the fact that it has SPF 21 and is oil free. $20.00 for a .5 fl.oz tube.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I love this blush! It goes on smoothly, blends in well, and STAYS PUT on my oily face the whole day!
A tube of this can last forever(you only need a small dab for each cheek) so it's really value for money!

WOW! Is all I can say! Wonderful texture. Using a Taklon brush, it blends so smoothly and appears very natural. It lasts all day, and the color is divine. It is so unlike any other cream blush I have used. Not oily or slippery, but seems much like the foundation, only with color. Try it out, get samples for $2.50, and the samples come in little tubes that will last you a long time.

I normally hate blush (I'm a big bronzer fan) but this product changed my mind! I love their foundations, and this product compliments it completely! It's a creamy blush that is packaged in a tube (I'm loving tubes right now) and just the right creamy rose shade to compliment my foundation (Florentine Fair). It wears all day, looks completely natural and gives such a lovely glow! I highly recommend everything Illuminare makes!

This blush used to be very nice but kinda hard to work with--it took some work to decide just how much to use. Just lately I bought this blush again and am stunned how the packaging has changed for the worse. Th blush still comes in a tube but it's only 0.25 ounces which happens to be much smaller than all of my eye creams! Plus I pressed the tube to dispense the blush and half of the tube compressed before I got any blush, making me wonder if I really got even the 1/4 ounce. Texture has not improved--got a lot of oily residue. Restoppered the blush, shook it up and still got a lot of clear fluid and no color. Finally got color and it seems to be sheerer than before so I don't think this blush is going to last long with daily use. And the absolute kick in the teeth is that for 1/4 ounce, cost was $18.00! Highway robbery! I suggest trying Bobbi Brown's cream and gel blushes before succumbing hard earned dollars to this rip-off product!

Just got a sample. This is a wonderful and unusual blush. Ruthie has made a liquid blush to compliment each shade of foundation. It compliments my skin tone so much. It is simply gorgeous. A little goes a long way. Use a taklon brush to spread.

I received this blush in a sample along with their foundation. It is soooo pretty. Apparently they match their blushes to the foundations. The sample I got just said Florentine Fair Blush on it. It's is a very soft rose color with the consistency of foundation which blends very well with a foundation brush. You only need a tiny bit of it and like the foundation it lasts all day until you take it off. I will definitely buy this when my sample runs out. Love the way it looks on me!
