I bought three colors of this blush from the website (three years ago now, good grief!): Pink, Peach and Red. I loved them for the first year or two, but they don't have great staying power, which is a bit annoying now. Of course, it could also be that they are now old--three years! And still a LOT of product left! The pink shade is very sheer. I love the color of the coral for the spring/summer, and the red is great for the fall/winter, I just wish they stayed better. Onward in the search for another great non-powder blush!

I remember this gel stain from the late 80's to early 90's. The color was lovely....very sheer, but enough coverage to give that healthy glow. I just may try it again; hopefully it's still as great as before.

I've had the original bottle from 20 years ago of the gel blush, and some back ups from my grandma (ya i know, it made her cheeks glow). I have also purchased recently from the color and flavor shop online the re-released version of this gel. In the red, they are not close to the same color, but the pigmintation of the new stuff is comparable. Both bottles were 0.5oz, but the old stuff is denser, so it looks like less but of same weight. The older stuff is also a true red. The newer bottles of red when put side by side look a tad orange next to the OG. So, its still an amazing product with great color and pigmentation, but is not the exact reproduction.

Who knew? Thanks MUA for directing me to yet another great product. I ordered this from their website and I have been using it every day since I got it. The packaging is practical and not fancy but who cares? A little goes a long way and the little tube should last for a LONG time.
I apply this with my duo fiber stippling blush and this blends out beautifully. No break outs or irritation and the end result is a natural glow. Highly recommend.

I used this product in the 90's. I loved it so much. I wish I can get it again.

This was my very first blush and I wore it for a decade. Then it was discontinued. How delighted am I that it's back? :) :) :) This is a soft, believable wash of natural looking color. No one can tell you're wearing blush - your skin shows through and you glow.

I had to try these after reading all of the reviews on here. I was going to buy them off of the Bonne Bell website, but their shipping is kind of high. Luckily someone sold them on ebay right around that time, so I got them for a bit cheaper. Mine are from England, so I'm not sure if they're exactly the same. I know that the packaging is different. I have Sheer Red and Sheer Peach. You need a very small amount to apply because these are very pigmented. The red gives a nice winter glow and the peach perks up my face nicely.

This is a great blush, very easy and quick to use, and stays on. It's good for a quick makeup, and leaves you with a very natural-looking flush. The consistency is just nice, and not runny (like other types who give a similar flush, but harder to control- eg, Benefit's Benetint), thereby making this really idiot-proof. Definitely would re-purchase...if only Bonne Belle is sold in Singapore. I have a old tube, and a little goes a long way. Mine is in Sheer Peach, and gives a 'glow from within' look. A definite keeper, and at such a great price too.

Ive bought plenty of gel blushes/tints/stains: Bonne bell is the best i have ever used, BEST. You mosdef can't beat the price: $4.25. I can't turn to another stain after using this. Like i said, its the price, but also its the colors, the glowiness is gives, the staying power. HOLY GRAIL FOR SURE.
Foundation is a must for me, and let me tell you, this is the only stain that will let me put this on top of my foundation. After Foundation, i use probably less than half a pea size for each cheek and dot 3 lil dots on each side and blend with a blusher brush! It looks wonderful. Its very pigmented, and gives you this wonderful healthy sheen on your skin that is not glittery. Its a matte glow, i know thats an oxymoron but it just works!
I have this is red, rose, and tawney. All beautiful colors. Mosdef LOVE!

OMG I have been looking for this for the last 15 years!! I had no idea they still sold it on their website. I got one in every color. I will report back when it arrives. Thank you, MUA sistahs!!
Ok, got it, here we go:
Red: Just about perfect, my top choice
Pink: Fades to nothing, needs multiple coats and then looks great. A nice, pink blush
Peach - looks good on, looks scary in the tube. I like it, it would be perfect with someone with a tan or more olive or yellow in their skin.
Rose; - I am very fair and I have to use this with a VERY light hand or I look SCARY! LOL!!
Oh, and as a lip stain this stuff can't be beat. Wonderful. Why don't they put it back in stores????

LOVE. THIS. PRODUCT. It goes on like a dream and gives just a hint of color on my cheeks. I don't love the smell but it fades quickly. The tube isn't super pretty, but who cares, right?

I have this in the Red. It's easy to apply. I just squeeze a tiny amount on my finger tip and rub on my cheeks in increasing circular motion. Very natural looking and stays put. I usually add a powder blush on top, such as dandelion.

I love this blush! I mean, come on, what's not to love?! It is very cheap, extremely easy to use and the colour stays on for a fairly long time. The blush comes in a few different colours such as Red, Pink, Rose and Peach, each costing about 4usd. After having tried gel and cream blushes from Tarte, Stila, Bobbi Brown, MAC and liquid ones such as BeneTint, I think this is still the best. BeneTint was easy to use but it was not convenient to carry around when I travel. The Bonne Bell gel blush comes in a small plastic tube that contains the product securely. It is easy to blend the blush and the colours are quite true to how they look like in the tube. It does not feel sticky like Tarte or Stila.

Iíve read tons of glowing reviews about gel blush or liquid blush such as Benfitís Benetint ($28/0.4oz) or Tarte cheek stain ($30/1oz) but I am really reluctant to pay the hefty price, especially in this bleak economic condition. So by accident, I came across the review on Bonne Bell gel blush. How interesting! I have glanced at Bonne Bell products in Wal-mart, CVS and Rite Aid so many times but never noticed they had such products. It turned out, they are discontinued but you can still get them from BBís official website. They cost $4.50 each plus shipping ($6), which is not exactly too cheap but oh well.
They come in small transparent plastic tubes with a white cap. The net weight is 0.5 oz/14 grams. On the tube, it reads, ďTranslucent Gel Blush 100% Oil Free and noncomedogenic.Ē The packaging is by no means glamorous but I couldnít care less about packaging.
I bought four colors: Sheer Pink, Sheer Rose, Sheer Peach, and Sheer Red. Sheer Pink is the lightest out of the four but it nonetheless has plenty of pigmentation. They donít look all that different in the tube but once you swatch them, they definitely have different shades/hues.
The pink is very natural looking and is a lovely soft pink that is just perfect for everyday. It gives my cheeks such a natural flush and a glow (the glow part is a mystery. It is transparent, has no glitter/shimmer in it and the finish is matte but somehow it manages to provide a wonderful, healthy luminosity). This is my go-to blush right now. It always delivers.
The peach is THE perfect peach Iíve ever found. It is not at all brown or orange. Blended out, it is a youthful glowing juicy peach color. Often when I see peach blushes, they are either too brown or too yellow, too pink or too grey or too beige. This one is just perfect. Love it!
Sheer Rose is a very beautiful light-medium rosy pink. It is a little more formal and a bit more grown-up than the pink but is still undoubtedly versatile and wearable. Great for any occasion, actually.
I havenít tried the sheer red and will update this review later.
For each cheek, I squeeze less than a pea-sized drop of blush and dab on the apple and blend it upward toward my hairline with my fingers. It is very, very easy to blend and never streaky. Of course, you can increase or reduce the amount according to your preference. The finish of the blushes is clean, matte, extremely light weight and absolutely breathable. I think my pores are thanking me for switching to a water-based blush from power blush or worse, cream blush. The gel blush lasts at least as long as, if not longer than my powder blush and I do not need to touch up throughout the day. What is also great about them is that when I wear powder blush, my cheeks tend to get oily by the end of the day but when I wear the gel blush, my cheeks stay very fresh at 5pm. They have not broken me out yet. So I highly recommend them to anyone and I believe these are absolutely worth it!

I have this in Sheer Rose, Sheer Red, and Sheer Pink, and love them all! Such a great gel blush, as such a great price...smells great too! There is not much diff. between the sheer rose and sheer red once applied, and the sheer pink is slightly lighter. These, like the gel bronze counterpart, absorb and dry completely on the skin, so no greasy residue or rubbing off! Good pigment, but not so much as to make them difficult to work with. I think these would be suitable for both fair and tan skintones, as the color is buildable. You can only get these off the Bonne Bell website though, so major downside!

This stuff rules. I have two shades (Sheer Pink and Sheer Red). The red shade gives you that perfect in-from-the-cold cheek. The pink is less dramatic, but clear and neutral. Both last very well on me, leaving a slight sheen (not shimmer--more like a glossy glow). Very natural-looking, cheap, and pretty!

This is absolutely the best blush! I've been using it since I was in high school - remember those little sampler bags that used to come hanging around the neck of the 1006 Lotion ? That's how I discovered it and I've been using it ever since. I'm a no-make-up kind of gal - no foundation, just clean clear skin, and the Sheer Peach makes me look naturally radiant! I couldn't live without it. Thank goodness Bonne Bell still sells it on their website! I'm getting ready to order three more tubes tonight just to have on hand in case it's discontinued.

Gotta add my voice to the "Blast from the Past" support group. I used this gem when I was a teenager, and I took delivery of a box of 3 spanking-new tubes of it in Pink, Red and Rose. This stuff is the poster child of a no-makeup day. It feels as clean and easy to apply as it did over 30 years ago, and looks as natural and transparent as always. For very short dollars, and very little effort, this is an HG--I could be 135 years old and this would still look like just a healthy glow. Love it, love it, love it. Talk about a "cheap thrill"!

Holy cow! I had this gel blush about 30 years ago. I was looking for a good cheek stain and had no idea they still sold this product on their website until I read about it here. (Thank you sacamano) I bought Sheer Rose. It's only $4.25. I also picked up two of the Good Nature Gels (Tawny & Peach) at the same price.

I just reached for this yet again .I have this in the peach color. It looks dark in the tube ,but goes on light and sheer. Its more pinky on me.It lasts all day. I use this more than I use my tarte stains and it seems to last longer on me then they do. I use a dot on each cheek blend and add more. Looks very natural and glowy. I also add it on top of bonne bell bronzer gel,so pretty!!
