I only use the darkest color but I get THE most gorgeous peachy/pinky glow when I use this. My entire face just lights up when I use this blush. The only other blush I have that compares to this color wise is Benefit Coralista.
I think these may have been discontinued. I have not seen these in stores for a while but I have already bought an extra as a back up. If you are fair and cooled toned this blush will really make you glow!
Like all Cover Girl products, this blush has that old school Noxema smell. I personally like the smell and it does away in about five minutes. That smell brings reminds me of Jr. High when I was broke and all I could afford to buy with my babysitting money was Cover Girl and Maybelline products.

Amazing blush! i don't know why so much hate :O
but truly love the middle colour, it really gives a nice glowy dewy effect. the contour colour i use on days that I'm tanner or for night time since its quite shimmery. and as for the highlight its not too great but it does an alright job of highlighting.... but my overall fav shade is the one in the middle :D

Not a big fan of this. I found it too shimmery for me. I'm not really looking for such glowy cheeks. And I can't see myself using the contour or highlight colors at all. Also don't care for the smell.

I really enjoyed this blush! The colors are nice and while it can be a little difficult at first to find the right amount of blush for you, it works wonderfully after that. Looks very natural and cute. I'd certainly buy this again!

I'm actually really tan, but trucheeks 1 was my favorite of all the sets! I love shimmery pinks, and these are very well paired! I was using two of the cheekers blushes to get the darker contrast with highlights on my upper cheekbones....now I don't have to! I usually just mix the two darker pinks, then go along just below my eyes on my upper cheekbones with the very pale shade, and the results are a gorgeous glowing from within look. These are not glittery, but have a subtle sheen which makes skin look fresh, radiant, and healthy. I happen to love the typical CG Noxzema scent that's in ALL of their powder blushes.

I bought this in a set that came with trublend foundation & powder also. I liked the other things ok, but the blush not so much. I don't like the fact that it has added fragrance. That's pointless. Next, it broke me out. I think that it could possibly be from the added fragrance, but I don't know for sure. I also have better a blush anyway: clinique blushing blush in smoldering plum.

I came home for a month and was doing a make-up tutorial, but I hadn't brought any blush with me, and the new NARS Orgasm I'd ordered hadn't arrived yet. Desperate, I raided my mom's beauty box and came across a couple of the TruCheeks blushes.
These are actually REALLY beautiful blushes! I disagree with reviews that say they are "shimmery," actually; they have a bit of a "sheen" to them, but they apply completely matte to my skin. You should never use the teeny brushes that come with compacts, because they're always crap; I recommend a fluffy dome brush. I like to run the brush across all three colors, tap off excess, and apply directly to the apples of my cheeks and blend up. These blushes blend perfectly, and they're SUPER pigmented. A little goes a long way!
I'm very fair, but I've tried levels 1, 2, and 3, and they all look quite nice on me.
The compact is pretty good; it's sturdy and clicks shut tightly. I also love that you get three colors, which you can blend or use separately; I thought that was a great deal. However, I have two minor qualms with the packaging: the blush colors are REALLY close together, so it can be hard to pick up just one color, and the shape of the compact makes it difficult to remove powder residue.
One quick recommendation: I ALWAYS apply my blush after my foundation, but before my face powder. That way, if I apply too much blush, I can tone it down with my powder. I haven't had that problem yet with these blushes, but it's a suggestion for those who are afraid of looking like a clown.

I LOVE this blush! The middle shade is prefect, applied with a fluffy brush it gives me a perfect pink glow. The highlight shade hardly shows up at all but the contour shade is nice and works well with the other blush. And the packaging is so cute, I love the iredescent shimmer in the plastic. The only thing I dislike is the smell, it reeks like baby powder, however I can't smell it when I'm wearing it so I won't take any lippies off for that.

This product is good you just have to mix the colors to get a decent shade I feel they are too bright but hey next time just buy a good blush product.

I bought TruCheeks #1. I love the peachy pink in the centre of the pallette. It is a really pretty, healthy looking glow, especially for younger skin. It really brightens the face. I haven't really used much of the darker pink or light pink shimmer, because I usually use a bit of bronzer with the peachy pink if i want to contour. I used the light shimmer today and it's really nice for highlighting! Also the darker pink is nice for a winter cheek.
My only complaints for this product are:
The smell is unpleasant, kind of like flowery scented talcum powder.
The colour wears off a bit too easily.
The brush that comes with it is crap (but that's to be expected!)
Overall I definatley recommend this for a fresh-faced, healthy looking glow.

When I first bought TruCheeks I bought #2 thinking that #1 would be too pink for me but then changed my mind and went after #1 as well. I'm glad I did. Used together, these colors gave me a good soft pink glow, unlike other reviewers it didn't give me a clown color look. It has good staying power for a drug store blush and despite my other favorites I find myself reaching for it more often than not.

I'm not a big fan of cover girl blush. Especially this one. The colours are SHIMMERY, which is only a good look if you're 4. All of the shades go on and make you look sort of like a clown. The brush is useless, even worse then usual blush brushes. The highlight shade is an odd colour, the contour is too dark, and the middle shade is a clown blush. The plastic packaging would probally fall apart if you put it into your purse, but I've never tried that. Plus, the packaging is sort of ugly. At least I had a really good blush for 80's day at school.........

I actually really quite like this blush. I love that it comes with contour, highlight and then the actual blush. The blush and contour is matte, and the highlight has a soft shimmer which is perfect for me. This is more my winter blush because I often go for a pinker tone in the summer, but I can use it both seasons really. The brush they give you is useless, so I just threw that out. But otherwise, love it. I have fairly sensitive skin and I havn't had any break outs from it.

I'm so ambivalent toward this product- it's not horrible nor is it great. I definitely would NOT purchase this again nor would I recommend it to anyone. One thing that is really annoying is that all CG products have this sweet signature smell. It's really distracting. I'm def. gonna avoid all CG products in the future.

This product is bad in my opinion not only is the formual cheap looking clown-ish. it made me break out and i have normal skin. It smells werid which i didnt like and the brush it a horrible applicator FOR blush its square shaped which will give you a streaky look rather than rounded for a flawless look... and it was really bad and my skin tone lol bad for all skin tones, BUT its great Clown makeup.

Wasn't until I opened it that I remembered why I stopped using CG stuff - smells like the bathroom fragrances...... Well, onto the coloring: I am Asian with really pale skin, so I have a bunch of blushes. But this is the first time I try anything contour-ish. Naturally, I choose 1, which is the palest of the set. The package is kinda cute, but still look like a oversize MU toy: plastic and definitely not durable. I may as well throw the brush away, but that goes for every brush that comes with a mu - I don't get why they even bother putting it there anymore. The palette is way too small anyway. It's fine if you don't swipe or spin a brush in it - just a light dip. My brush (ecotool) is very soft and usually doesn't pick up - but it pick up a good amount it, so the blush is pretty soft. I think all the crown comment is because of this - I am fine though, cause I am really light-headed with all my blushes. Nothing too spectacular - just colors. For 7 bucks - definitely not worth it. I only got it cause it's buy one get one free, and will probably never buy it again. NYC Mosaic can do the same, but without the fragrance and half the price.

This smells so bad,It comes with three different shades that I cant see anyone wearing without looking like a clown, just terrible
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I had the old stuff of this.. when it was almost the same shades... but in more of a peach rather than clown pink....
I have the first one....
and my skin is pretty tan and I ook like a clown wearing this crap so I cant even imagine how people that are extremey pale look in it!
The contour color is just plain sad.....(you're supposed to contour with a bronzer).... the middle shade is completely unnatural and WAYYY too crumbly! The highlighting shade is the ony reason why I havent thrown this out yet. Its alright.... but still TOO FRICKEN PINK!
It smells nasty.
It crumbles like crazy... it gets all over the counters and my face and my clothes and my other makeup!
Packaging is cheap and ugly... like covergirl itself!
When I first got this I threw the brush away since its a peice of shit!
Whenever using a REAL blush brush I cant ever get the color I actually want cuz the compartments are so fricken small and close together!
The lid broke like 30 times already.....
I will only sujjest this to people who either want to look like barbie or a clown..... otherwize dont waste your money like me on the saddest purchase of your life!
EDIT: I stopped using it... then went back to it... I guess i learnt how to apply blush with a light hand cuz it looks wonderful!! Maybe it was just super pigmented.... the packaging still sucks... nd it still makes a mess!

Yay for trucheeks! It looks really natural, it is my new fave blush. Really easy to pair it up with anything... I bought it in a 2 and a 5 even though I'm a 3-4ish... But you can pair these colours up with just about anything. Did not cause me to break out, sometimes you can't tell you have makeup on, it just blends right in. Overall, I say its fab.

My TRUcheeks Blusher is #2,
Shimmery tan/peach as highlight. Dark shimmery peach as the blusher and matte rust as contour. Didn't work for me. The coloring was too light and shimmery for my taste for cheek use. So I use this either in one great swirl over all 3 together and use the blend as highlighter to a darker blush OR over a white base (soft jumbo eye pencil to keep it put) as e/s: Highlight to the brow bone. Peach to the lid. Rust as the crease color. Perfect trio for a nudish look with a kick (the shimmer). Can't get easier than that when I'm rushed for time. Glam this look up with lots of black mascara and a super eye popping lipglass. Done and out the door.
Would not repurchase as blush but definately useable as e/s and highlighter.
Found this at Walgreens clearanced about 3usd.
