Such a beautiful formula and #2 is a very light, hint of peach on my NC30/C4 light tan skin. The pigmentation is lovely, so when I refer to light, I mean the shade and the weight. It is a light-toned soft pinky peach that is weightless and not powdery. It is very finely milled and endless layers can be applied. It does a nice job mellowing the red in my cheeks and leaves a very soft color, does not look like blush at all. I actually like using this as a blending cheek color when I use other blushes, since it reduces my slightly red cheeks and softens the powderiness of other products. On its own, it is very "no makeup- makeup" on my complexion.

I love Armani's Sheer Blush. It goes on really sheer, but can be easily layered to build as much color as you want!
My skin tone is light-to-medium (Chanel 30, Laura Mericier Nude), and the 02 pink does NOT look natural on me (I would definitely buy this blush again, just not in this shade). I did really like the 02 pink shade, and I think it would probably look great on someone with a lighter skin tone. For those with a similar skin tone to me, I found the 06 light rose looks natural on me.
I took off 1 star because the color completely fades by the end of day. The other complaints I have about this product are the price ($44) and the customer service at Armani Beauty online, which was inconsistent and not always that great.
Overall: Amazing, natural looking blush! Would definitely recommend.
Value: Although $44 is a bit pricey for blush, I think this product is definitely worth it and given how much I have to use, it should last quite a while. I got it for 20% off during a promotion at Armani Beauty online.

Gorgeous, gorgeous light nude peach blush that you can't overdo because it's so sheer. Great for work and those days where you want something super natural and healthy-looking. Bonus: completely idiot-proof and looks ridiculously good no matter how quickly you slap it on because it basically blends itself. Those who say it doesn't show up on the skin might not be using enough; because it's so sheer, you do need to be more heavy-handed but it looks amazing afterwards. Perfect on my lighter skin (NC25), but not sure how much it will show up on darker skin tones. Smashbox blush in Bare is a cheaper dupe -- I have both and they look very similar on, but Smashbox feels less finely milled. P.S. Pretty sure the image associated with this blush is wrong. Google it to see the right color.

With skin as fair as mine (I typically use the lightest foundation shades in just about any line), it can be tricky to find a blush that works. On the one hand, I desperately need color on my face. I mean, without it, I appear sick, tired, anemic. On the other hand, it doesn't take much color to make me look like a clown. NARs blushes, in particular, don't work for me. They are too pigmented and, in some cases, glittery, to look at all natural. I went to the Armani counter because I am a sucker for a well done magazine cover. Meghan Fox looked stunning on the March issue of Cosmo, sporting the line of makeup she reps for. I tried Blush #2 and was greatly disappointed. On my pale skin, this blush barely showed up. It was a "why bother." For a blush that costs most than 40 dollars, I was more than a little disappointed. I tried #10 as well..a little better but not worth the money. I will stick with Smashbox. Cheaper and better.

This blush is a very soft peachy-pink with micro-shimmer that's extremely hard to overdo. It gives my pale skin a healthy sheen without emphasizing the redness of my acne scars (concealer doesn't completely cover them). This is definitely one of those versatile blushes that can go with just about every look - smokey eye, red lip, MFBB, etc.
Packaging is good: a sleek black case. The price, however, makes me cringe (44USD).

love the subtle color. great for fair skin

Looks chalky on my light to medium skintone. Not worth the price.

I love this blush! It's like Nars Orgasm without the glitter. I layer it over Tarte Cheek Stain in Tickled and it's the perfect combination! I love the warm peachy color. This is my HG blush.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Olive, Warm Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
Beautiful silky texture, natural glowy colour. Very feminine and natural on my light olive skin. BORING uninspired packaging.

By far my favorite powder blush! For reference, I am NC20 in MAC/Bobbi Brown Warm Ivory, so I have light skin with golden undertones. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone, so since I usually set my foundations with powder or use powder foundations, I lean towards powder blushes.
I digress... #2 is a light shimmery nude-pink color with peach undertones, so I think it could work well for both cool and warm-toned ladies. I did not have any problem with this blush showing up on my skin at all, and I am not heavy-handed with my makeup application. It gives the most perfect, natural-looking flush to the skin. The texture is silky and soft, and really lasts all day.
For ladies who are more tan/darker complected, I think this would make a beautiful highlighter, because it doesn't have white undertones, so you wouldn't have to worry about it being ashy.
Overall, love! It is expensive, but a little goes a long way. This blush in on par with my Chanel Joues Contrastes, and will be a staple in my kit.

Not worth its money. I really wanted this to be the perfect blush, since all the hype was there, but I think its mediocre. Some reviewers had made a point that this blush is really light...it is. I can barely even tell I put it on. Pinch your cheeks and you'll be better off.
It is very expensive and I sometime (early in the morning) found this package very difficult to open.

This is a nice light peach shade with pinkish/nude undertones, that's the best way I can describe it. It is very natural, you will not get a "pop" of color on your cheeks from using this. The shimmer is this blush does not apply OTT on your cheeks, but as a subtle glow. I gave a 4 rating because though it works very well for me darker skinned ladies I think could not wear this, it would look ashy/chalky or not even show up at all. It retails for $43.

I have to say, the quality of GA blushes is really impressive. I think I prefer this over Chanel Joues Contraste blushes, which I also love. #2 is very subtle on my NC20 complexion, but still manages to impart a radiant glow. This is the perfect blush to wear when you want a natural, peachy, glowy look. If you like Chanel JC's, I highly recommend checking these out! #2 and #10 are standouts.

love this colour so much, it looked so natural & pretty. it is not very pigmented so i have to use a lot, very sad coz i can't find this in indonesia. so now, i am using this only for special occasion. :P

natural and beatiful.

will definitely try other colors

I love this blush! I recently went haul crazy and am obsessed with GA products. Each product keeps exceeding my expectations. I've been a long time Bobbi Brown user and was satisfied. But with GA products I am over the moon.
This blush is the prettiest pale pink on my medium toned skin. It looks super natural and the staying power last 12+ hours. I love wearing this blush when I want a light wash and some stronger lip color.
The packaging is sleek and sophisticated, when you have more than one compact it does get confusing since they all look the same.
Well worth the money.

Perfect pink-peach with very subtle shimmer for a radiant look. Sheer enough for easy layering if more colour is desired. Very natural looking when applied with a light hand. Finely milled, very flattering. I'm into my 4th one!

I was kind of let down with this blush. I had heard/read a lot of hype around the entire range, and more specifically this shade..and the hype didn't live up to it, for me at least. When Armani says "sheer"..they really mean it. I'm..in MAC terms something like..NC10, and I feel that this color is too light for me. The powder is very soft and finely milled, which is good, but at the same time, I feel like after I put it on my face, it flies right off. I'm trying it out with different brushes to see if I can get a more packed on/pigmented wear out of it, but thus far, I'm failing. Having said all this, I still think it's a very pretty blush, but I definitely would not repurchase.

This color is so impressive in it's subtlety. It's not obviously pink but somehow manages to impart that gorgeous color nonetheless. Like a genteel, barely there touch of color. Borders on flesh toned. Extremely subtle shimmer, just enough to add some luminescence and prevent it from appearing flat.
The texture is silky and so finely milled... more so than Chanel, D&G, or Dior in my opinion, and they are my favorite blush brands. I enjoy applying it because it feels so soft and just sinks into my skin. My face looks healthy without being overdone.
This is one of my only blushes I've ever had to repurchase, and I'll continue to as long as they keep making it. It's such a favorite of mine I can't say enough great things about it!

Smooth, soft long wearing pink. It's a very light and sheer. That describes it completely. I use it when I want to have the no makeup-makeup look. $$$ but all Giorgio Armani make up is.
