I use the blush in thistle at night. Very pigmented color, so use a light hand. I like how the color is matte yet still radiant! Can be quite difficult to apply though. The blush in heaven is good for daytime use if you have light-med skin tone.

I have been using bare escentuals mineral blush for about 2 years now. I love it. I looks natural and radiant and a little goes a long way. The only downfall is that after about 4 or 5 hours it comes off my skin. I have combo/oily skin with occasional breakouts. It doesn't cause breakouts and it looks great. I think I'll give Jane Iredale blush a try and see if it stays on a bit longer.

I am a total lover of mineral makeup for my oily skin it is the best!
Although BE is not my favorite mineral foundation I love their blush and all over face colors!
My favorite is the Warm Radience, it is beautiful!
I have warm olive toned skin, fair or pink toned skin might prefer the Radience.
It is like an all over healthy glow for your face and cheeks.
I am trying to get rid of irritants like Bismuth Oxychloride, so I may not repurchase, but they do have beautiful colors.

These blushes are sometimes scary looking in the pot, but I have really pale skin and I have yet to find one that doesn't look natural on if applied the way all BE is supposed to be---sparingly. These last longer on me than any other blush I've tried, and the amount you get in the pot is great. I especially love Laughter (my new fave---unbelievably perfect pink peach), Golden Gate (peachy pink), and Fruit Cocktail, which looks almost flourescent pink in the jar but is really soft on. The best blushes I've ever used, hands down.

I have this in Golden Gate (thanks to MUA reviews) and I love the color, a lovely pink, not really that golden. It goes on pretty sheer, so the color in the pot is misleading. I have found it pretty foolproof and apply it to the brush much the same way as i do the foundation.

These blushes are very sheer and wearable and the staying power is excellent. The color selection is also very impressive, you're sure to find more than one to suit your complexion. My personal favorite is Beauty, a perfect natural pink that looks amazing for every day wear. These are in loose powder form so they can get a bit messy if you're not very careful, that's my only difficulty with these.

I have tired, glee, true, clear radiance and warmth. My least favorite so far s true because it is a little too dark if I'm not carely. But other than that a little bit is all you need, they look perfectly natural not bozo the clown like, and last all day. I use the blushes on my eye lids too.

Great blush! I only use a tiny bit along with the BE tapered blush brush and apply with a very light hand. Looks very natural and lasts all day. I use the Thistle blush on both my cheeks and lips. Great stuff. I will never use anything else.

This blush is amazing - so rick, creamy, and blendable - in a loose powder!
My all-time favorite blush. I use Golden Gate, and it's such a perfect neutral - makes me look healthy and alive, and matches virtually all my eye make-up. Golden Gate is a neutral medium salmony-pink, and would look great on warm and cool skin tones. Some have complained about the loose texture of this product, but I find that the loose texture actually helps the blush look more natural and blended.
If you're looking for one color from the BE line that will look great with everything, try Golden Gate. Hope to try more BE blushes in the future, but at $18 a pop, I can't splurge too often!

I really like this blush with my Bare Minerals fairly light 1.2. You do have to be careful with these products so you don't spill them, but overall they're great. I'm using Thistle which is a great pinky-brown color, very natural looking. I was trying to use a regular pressed powder blush with the Bare Minerals, but this works much better. I can't wait to try more colors!

I love all of the BE products - except Warmth. No matter how I tried, I never liked that. Back to the blushes. I must have 5 different colors and love them all. I wear different colors depending on my mood and time of year. The color lasts all day, doesn't change color on me and I don't get the "clown" look. I admit it takes a couple of times to get it right. I was so used to having to use a ton that the first time I put it on I scared myself when I looked in the mirror! Just a tiny bit goes a looooong way with this product. It may cost a bit more than the drug store brands up front, but it lasts forever. I love this stuff.

I use the I'm Amused Rouge and am impressed with the staying power. I always tone it down a little with the mineral veil all over my face after applying the foundation color (Fairly Light) and this blush because the pigments are dark.

I have been searching for my holy grail blush for ages, and I finally found it with BE blushes. I own Tulip and Flowers, both of which provide a sheer hint of color on my cheeks--which is exactly what I was looking for! A little bit goes a long way with these blushes, so the big containers will last forever. $18 is a bargain, considering the quality and amount of product included.

I love my BM blush. The power is so soft and the pigment is great. Whenver I brush it on it makes me look like I've just been running a mile. I love the idea that it's minerals and won't harm my face as much as other non-mineral products. The only thing that that I have to say bad about BM is that the color fades off. Maybe this is because it's a loose powder, but I was still hoping it would stay on a little bit longer.

I am using a color called Glamorous
that i got in the 2003 holiday kit. I am loving the color and the application of this blush. You do have to watch out how much you put on your brush cause it can be too entense on the skin. Although i just use the bits that are in the lid and have no problem. This doesnt fade and it doesnt dry out skin and i find it isnt that messy. I definately love this brand and cant wait to try other colors of their blush.

I've been a Chanel powder blush customer since the brand first hit US department stores (ages me, eh?)
but the BE blush is SOOOO much better than Chanel that I'm thinking I really need to toss out all my Chanel blushes even though I have 2 compacts of each color I even *semi* like (one for home & one for purse) as well as a huge selection of colors no longer made.
My estimation of the BE blush: I've only tried 2 colors (Beauty & Romance [latter special edition color?]) but, at least on me, they do not fade or change color over time. And once you adapt to the application technique, the BE blushes give a dramatically (word not really appropiate!) more natural look than any other blush I have ever bought (we all have our own makeup "weaknesses"; mine are blushes, foundations & lipsticks).
At any rate, I heartily recommend the BE blushes.

BE blushes are great in that they offer sheer to heavy coverage w/ a tiny amount of product. Application takes some practice but I have been able to achieve a glow-from-within sheer blush look after only a short time of using the BE blushes. And I honestly don't think I will run out of any one color in the very near future--they are that generous w/ product, and it takes so little to get the look I want. If you like mineral blushes these are worth a definite look-see.

I have this in Dawn, a bright peachy shade. I love how blendable and soft-looking it is, and it really lasts a long time. Application takes a bit of getting used to, but it's so gorgeous it's worth it.

I love BE and thier blushes are not an exception!!
I have Beauty, Sorbet and Heaven. All of these are in the cool family, different shades of pink.
I love them all and sometimes when I can't decide which one to wear, I close my eyes and just pick. They will last forever because you need so little and the fact that they are loose actually works better for me than the pressed blushes I own. I am a PPP. *Edited* I now have added True and Hint to my collection!

I absolutely love BE blushes! I was lucky enough to receive some samples recently of some of the shades I haven't tried from a fellow MUAer (Joya). She sent me Warmth, Glee, Port and Dusk. I think my favorites are the Glee and Dusk. These blushes are highly pigmented so a little goes a long way and so does the coverage...all day! They blend beautifully and the shades are lovely. Hard to describe until you try them, but they make your skin kind of glow. Will definitely be buying full size jars when the samples run out.
The only downside to these blushes is the packaging. They are loose powders and you can make quite a mess if you're not careful. When I'm using them I dip my brush into the little jar of blush and then swirl it around in a much larger jar lid that I use just for that purpose.
