THE BEST!!!! Armani makes the best blush ever! I can't live without this product. Perfect for paler complexions, but it works great when i have a tan too. I use it everyday, it's worth every penny. I highly recommend all Armani blushes - there is literally something for everyone. Natural, subtle, glowing and perfectly flushed is what this product does for me. Armani is by far my new favorite makeup brand for blushes, foundations and eye liners/shadows (I'm not the biggest fan of the concealers or mascara, but that's just me). LOVE IT!!!!

I needed a blush for my pale winterskin (Asian NC25). Everything I had looked harsh. This is the perfect pale pink blush with very subte shimmer - gives a nice glow. It's quite sheer, but that's what makes it perfect.

This is an overall excellent product. It's similar in tone to Nars Orgasm but more finely milled and a more subtle glow to it. It layers well with other blushes or bronzer. For Pale girls this is a must have shade. If you are darker or olive go with #10. I use BB bronzer as a base and then #2 for daytime. I add Nars Orgasm to the apple for night for a more robust look.

This is a beautiful, subtle peachy pink - very flattering on, makes my skin look lightly flushed, soft and glowy. Finely milled and easy to apply and blend. My skin is pale at the moment and it really enhances it - not sure if it would show up so much on tanned skin. Overall this is a definite holy grail. I like this with defined eyes and lightly glossed lips, but it easily adapts to office or evening face. Compact is chic if a little prone to fingerprints. Expensive, but the quality is worth it - I haven't found any comparable products.

The texture is a dream. It's so creamy and smooth that I almost thought I'd gotten a cream blush by mistake. It feels creamier than NARS' cream blushes! The color is an extremely faint (make no mistake about it--it's really pale) blossom pink, really sweet and delicate. It does remind me of Benefit's Dandelion, except toned down in terms of brightness by a click, more neutral. I think that those with complexions on the lighter end of the spectrum, but with yellow or neutral undertones, will do best with this. If you have more of a pinkish complexion, then this blush (and most sheer, light pink blushes) will blend in too much and look like nothing. I think that's the reason why super-pale powders like this and Dandelion are dissed by some PPPs, but work great for LLLs.
I have to layer a little to get this to show up as a color on my light, yellow-toned skin, but the result is extremely natural and pretty and flattering. I prefer very subtle cheek color for daytime looks. I work in a conservative, casual but professional environment and I do not like going around looking like I've been slapped, gone running, made out with a pirate, or joined the circus. I just want a hint of color to keep me from looking washed out, and a subtle glow without obvious shimmer or shine. This fits the bill perfectly. The lasting power is not great, though. I sometimes layer a bit of Dandelion and my translucent powder (Laura Mercier) on top and that helps with the lasting power. I think I would repurchase, but the price makes my palms go all clammy. Too bad near-perfection doesn't come cheap...
ETA: This looks even better now that I don't use a skunk brush to apply it. I started using MAC's #116 brush to apply this and I don't really need to layer anymore--perfect application, perfectly glowy, angelic, delicate blush. I'm in love!

Okay, I would buy this again, but only if I still had Benefit's High Beam around. I really don't find this blush impressive AT ALL, and it's ridiculously overpriced ($42 for a BLUSH? Whatever!). I was so annoyed when I bought it, until I tried layering it over High Beam on my cheeks. That creates the perfect pink, sweet, innocent healthy glow.

A sheer soft pink color, which you can wear in your easy days. It makes me look fresh and bright with a little glitters in the texture.

Finally found something to replace Dandelion and do what I wanted Dandelion to do all these years. This is the perfect soft pink for paler winter skin. I have to put a few layers with a dense brush but the look is perfect. Just a warm milky soft pink cheek. It really lifts the complexion. Expensive but worth it, large size with mirrored compact as well.

Sheer blush #2... a soft pink with a hint of peach and a very subtle gleam. Very natural looking and also easy to build; it never looks harsh when you put it on. I like to use this at night, paired with smokey eyes and nude lips, it gives a soft sexy glow. I like that it doesn't look too obvious/ fake. However, it does darken slightly over the course of the day (esp if you have oily skin). Using primers/ oil-controllers /loose powder/ blotting paper in conjunction with this product would probably yield better results.
The packaging is also very nice, which is always a plus in my books.

Sheer blush #2 has more pigments than #1 and has a little bit of peach shade in it. Similar to #1, this one contains very subtle shimmer and give very nice natural flush on my cheek. I prefer #1 a bit more than #2 but #2 is very good alternative. The quality of GA blush is very great. It can be applied smoothly, give natural flush and add radiant to your cheek. It also lasts all day. The only drawback is its overly high price.

Very pretty peachy pink shade for a natural flush on the cheeks. am very surprised the color shows up on my NC25 Asian yellow toned skin. was worried at first that this light pinkish tone would not show up on my cheeks. the texture of the GA powder blush is very sheer and gives a very natural look..i simply love the look it gives to my cheeks!! will definately purchase it again but i cant get it here in Singapore!

A very lovely blush! Im a ppp and GA sheer blush #2 complements my NC15-20 skin with a natural peachy-pink flush. It has subtle shimmers that does not makes me look like a disco ball upon application. Suitable for any type of look, be it neutrals or not. Texture is fine, silky and the casing is sleek and elegant.Im lucky to get this blush from a mua-er since GA is not available in my country. This blush has made me more interested in venturing into this brand!

This has been my HG blush for quite some time now. People often wonder if it's worth the price. You do the math: I have been using this almost daily for a year and a half. I have hit pan, but I still have another good 3 months left of use probably. I will definitely repurchase this. It's a light shade so keep that in mind if you need a nicely pigmented blush, this one might not be for you, but fair to medium skin tones, this is a beautiful, natural looking blush. The color is a peachy-pink with a hint of shimmer. Au natural! I'm LSF #5, but if you're darker than that, this might be too light - if that's the case, try sheer blush #10. This is my favorite blush!

It's hard to add anything new to all the comments already made here but since I love this blush so much I have to add my voice. The color is a soft and pretty peach/pink with a very subtle shimmer. The packaging is sleek and beautiful, classic Armani, and the black compact contains a large disc of the blush so that it will last a long time. I'm a PPP and this blush adds a perfect, healthy-looking, color to my cheeks that's perfect for daytime and also pretty and flattering for nighttime. And the color lasts, unlike some blushes that I've found just disappear soon after applying. I also use this blush over my favorite Armani Fluid Sheer (#11). A HG blush.

Sheer Blush #2 is the perfect blush for subtle color and that "candlelit" glow. It's a fleshy peachy pink with fine shimmers. The effect is very little color, I get more of a healthy glowy flush rather than a blushy flush if that makes sense. This blush is not meant to show up strongly on skintones, though I find that the color pops more when I wear this on top of bronzer. Strange but true. It's a very forgiving color that would work on warm, cool, and olive skintones. Just don't expect a huge color payoff like Shu or NARS, because #2 is in a league of its own. When applied and blended properly my cheekbones are well defined and I get a magnificent glow to my cheeks that don't look blushy. For reference I'm Stila 30 watts, Chanel Beige/Sand, and GA LSF 5.5.
For lipcolor pairings, anything goes! I've worn this blush sucessfully with MLBB type colors, nude lips, and red lips. GA Blush #2 is that versatile :)

I absolutely adore blush and this has got to be HG day blush material. My boyfriend bought this for me, and I'm super proud of him considering he's red/green colour blind!! I'm a NC20 and this is just perfect. The texture smoooth and even though it is quite sheer, you can build the colour up easily. It's quite peachy with a hint of pink. Definitely has more pinkish tones in it than the Shu Uemura P Peach47 and not as bold a peach. It has a few very fine shimmer particles in it, but not at all noticeable when applied. The packaging is a very subtle matte black compact with a mirror which unlike the Shu Uemura (as much as I love it), does not open up in my makeupbag!! Overall, a very subtle blush that can be worn on a daily basis that gives you this wonderful ethereal glow. Would purchase again in a heartbeat besides the ridiculous price in Australia $74AUD.

I got this pretty blush by swapping here. This is a sweet pale pink color that I wear everyday, even in the Christmas dinner. It can be matched with most of the eye make-up. It has little shimmer on the surface but won't get shimmer on your face. I really like this color.

just like the other reviewers, armani blushes (in general) surpass all others in terms of its texture. this blush is so finely milled, resulting in a near perfect application. it really is luxurious! the color of this blush is also very unique. it's not a standard peachy blush. i don't think i've seen a shade quite like this. like other reviewers, it does come off like a peachy sort of fleshy tone on my lsf 5/5.5 mix, pale, asian skin. it just seems like a more sophisticated coloring as opposed to the usual peach blushes i wear, which seems to give a more sweet-faced effect. thankfully, i got this blush from a very generous mua-er so the $40 price tag didn't apply here. staying power isn't great. for my skin tone, i had to apply a couple of strokes (maybe 3 max) to get it to show. nevertheless, i'd repurchase.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Oily, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I have very oily skin and this is the only blush that doesn't turn orange or dark brown by the end of the day. I sometimes need to re-apply after I dust with some loose blotting powder. I have yellowish undertones and this color is great. It has a slight shimmer, just enough to give you that perfect 'glow'. I would definitely buy this product again. Although, I probably won't have to because the amount of times I use blush.. this will last me a lifetime!.
