I randomly found this blush on ebay, and purchased it because it was so inexpensive ($3.20 including s/h) and also because it appeared to be such a pretty pink. The blush is simply called "pink", and apparently stopped being made years ago. It's extremely light and you need a decent amount to get it to show up. I'm very fair (NC-15) and needed to apply about 3 coats to get it to show up. Once it showed up however, I fell in love. It's very similar to one of my favorite blushes, Katie by Illamasqua. However, Katie is of much better quality, and you only need a little bit for it to show up on your skin, granted you need to be pretty fair though. This Artmatic blush is a little more pink, while Katie is a bit peachier. Also, it has some shimmer to it, while Katie is matte. This gets 4 stars because it's the prettiest drug store blush I've ever seen, and I've seen many. Unfortunately, he packaging sucks, the blush definitely pops open way too easily, I wouldn't travel with this in my purse or anything like that, but if you like Katie, or want to try out a similar color for a much lower price, I suggest finding this on ebay.
