This blush is one of my favorites by accident. I actually wanted to buy a rose/pink colored blush and this one seemed just perfect. When I opened the box at home I was really disappointed. I realized that the cover was blue, not transparent, and the shade was not pink at all, it's more of a warm, peachy color. I always thought that only cool shades look good on cool types (ash blonde hair, cool, medium-fair skin, cool brown eyes). Slowly I realized, that I actually liked the color, even though it was not what I expected. And when I put it on, it was just perfect. On my skin it looked much rosier than in the box. But it still had a touch of peachy warmth, which was very natural and made my complexion look fresher, healthier. I actually look much better with this shade. And the pigmentation is just right. I am a "soft summer" type, too much color looks harsh on me. And this one is just perfect. The shade, the softness, the pigmentation - which is nicely buildable. And it's inexpensive too. I still think the blue cover is very deceiving, but since I fell in love with this little treasure, I will still give a 5.

I love love love this blush. It's the combination of an amazing colour mixed with the cheap price and good staying power that does it for me. The colour looks light peach on my nc43 skin. I've never had trouble with putting too much on because it goes on quite sheer and is buildable. It blends beautifully and gives my face a really pretty, fresh glow. It has a matte finish too which is great for my oily skin and I also dislike blushes with shimmer. It has great staying power. I wear it to work and by the end of the day it is only a little lighter than in the morning. Some people complain about the cheap packaging, but you are paying very little so don't expect designer packaging.

This is a perfect blush/color! I use this everyday on the apples of my cheeks. The best thing is, you can't ever put too much on, ever! the color is truly the shade of a natural blush of your skin. its amazing. lasts as well.

Rimmel blushes are my "go to" blushes when I'm my naturally pale self. I have Santa Rose, Pink Rose, Berry, and Pink Sorbet. Mine all are the larger pan size with the brushes, so no complaints on the packaging. These are error proof, because they aren't dark and opaque, but that's actually a plus when you have fair skin. These shades are all very natural looking, and the slight shimmer some have in the pan, does not transfer onto the face (they go on matte). Shimmer in makeup is a dead giveaway that you're wearing makeup, and most of the time, I go for a very natural look. I also really like NYC's blushes, for the same reasons mentioned above.

I cannot attest to the new/changed reformulations as its my first purchase of this shade. But I do LOVE it, Ive only been reaching for this since I got it. Its a fool proof baby coral with the tiniest iridescent silver sparkle that translates into a healthy sheen. The color leans more pink vs nude/peach on my NC25 asian yellow skin. I generously swipe several layers to get the healthy flush as too light of a hand applies more like a highlight over pigmented blushes. Its quite a light shade so won't show up on tan/darker skin tones. Absolute NO flaky, crumbly quality; just smooth application. It lasts a good portion of the day too!

Love this blush! Been using this for around 4 years now so must have repurchased at least 8 times. Never fails me, I have medium/tan skin and it seems a really good colour for me.

I am fair/porcelain skinned with cool coloring, but I am able to wear this color to warm up my complexion. I also purchased the pink rose color but I wear santa rosa more often. The only thing I don't like are the sparkles, but I haven't found them noticeable after the blush is applied. The packaging and brush are cheap, but for the price I can't really complain!

A great little blush if you are super fair (probably NW-20 or less) as it wouldn't show up on medium/darker tones - and you are looking for a peach that isn't orangey this is a great neutral pinky peach with cool and warm tones (neutral) to give a great flush of colour. Very natural looking on the skin, looks like it has some shimmer in the pan but it appears as more of an invisible sheen on the skin. A great blush for very little money however you need to apply every few hours or so not at all long lasting like all Rimmel blushes so loses a point for staying power.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this blush. I purchased this for something cheap to keep in the makeup bag I keep at my other half's place, but that went out the window and I used it everyday for about a month. It's such a beautiful peachy pink colour, which is so pigmented and soft. An absolute bargain for the price tag! It's fairly long lasting too. I love this blush, the only thing I'm not a fan of is the packaging but for the price and the quality of product I'm not taking a lippy off for that. LOVE.

I usually don't like blush because I feel like I can never find the right color. But this blush is perfect!! It's crazy glitter it's very soft and pretty pigmented. The color is great and it's the perfect everyday color. The packaging is okay but for the price I don't really care. Overall love the blush!!!!

I have the oldest square package. This is my first blush and it is a little square that don't take a lot of space. but it has 5g in it and take forever to finish. I haven't done mine yet and it is the most natural and pretty pink/peach flush you can get. will buy it a gain but not anytime soon though because I was trying to finish it and use it straight a year. kind of sick of it a little bit

My big complaint about most blushes is that with 2 swipes- wham, overload .IMO nothing is more aging than an overdose of blush.
I have blushes from Hard Candy, ELF, NYX,Milani but none is like Santa Rosa. Rimmel Santa Rosa is a glitter free, natural pink and you can buff it in to a natural finish.Skip the apples of cheeks, place it from top of ear to mid cheek . In daylight, you will not look like a drag queen, just fresh and healthy.
EDIT: 1st blush I have ever hit pan on. Gotta find a new one now.

lovely and healthy peachy pink colour, which i find ideal. it appears to have some shimmer in the box, but when applied, leaves a really nice sheen without any obvious glitter or shimmer. it's a good price for a blush and i shan't complain about the packaging - it is very simple and its small size adds little bulk to my makeup bag.

Beautiful color, looks very natural, but hate hate hate the packaging ! I got the version with no brush and that's super tiny

i LOVE this blush. it's HG of the HG. i have the old version with the crappy plastic lid that comes completely off and has no brush... but the color is absolute perfection on my skin. i am NC20-ish with naturally flushed cheeks (that peek through even when i use foundation powder). the blush itself is a gorgeous peachy pink with slight shimmer (reminiscent of NARS deep throat) that doesn't make my natural flush redder. i can use it lightly for a polished flush or heavily for a defined pop of color. even if i pile it on it doesn't look bad. foolproof. i saw the reformulated version with the flip lid and brush and it looks different although i cannot confirm this yet (looked more like a nude-ish peach). i wish i had bought back-ups of this in the original formulation / packaging. it's my absolute favorite (above MAC, NARS, etc)!

Worth the hype. This is probably my most reached for blush. It works for daytime and nightime. This is the color of my natural blush. It's so suddle and pretty, it's matte with a couple sparkles that's very flattering. The only downside is that the packaging is a little flimsy, and the staying power isn't great but for the price that's okay. It doesn't look like much in the pan, but please take a chance on this blush you won't be disappointed !

Initially I wasn't too sure if I liked this blush yet have been able to make a more accurate judgement once I had the right foundation underneath.
It throws off a more peachy brownish colour on me which I love.
It applies lightly yet builds up slowly which I also like & leaves a healthy natural look.
I have used it as an eyeshadow when I'm in a rush & just want to apply something neutral on either my lids or edge of my brow bone.
The packaging is very average yet isn't flimsy enough to break. I love the brush as it seems to give me more control on wear I place it.
I recommend this blush & for $4, I will definitely repurchase.
Update: I've been using this as a eyeshadow base & love the colour. I apply it to my lid & crease & apply a cream or beige on my brow bone & it looks lovely for a natural/day look. Having a better foundation underneath makes this blush so much better on me. With these two points in mind & for the price I've added one lippie.

i love it! its looks like nothing much in the pan, but onee you put it on your cheeks, it instantly gives you a warm glow. i think its a perfect year-round blush, too! :)
another plus: its wears for a surprisingly long time.

I was walking around the makeup section at Target looking at different blushes. I am usually not a big fan of Rimmel, but I stopped to look anyway. Santa Rose immediately caught my eye. It looked like such a pretty color in the pan. I like lighter colored blushes that give off a light flush on the cheek vs. darker ones. So I was little worried about the color being too dark, but decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. This color is absolutely beautiful! It gives a perfect flush of natural color and adds definition to the cheeks. This is definitely my go-to for blush from now on!
