Another fair-skinned vote for this. A couple years ago, I showed up at my local Ulta (and Sephora) wanting a TRUE RED blush. (Wouldn't you know, there's a bunch of them now...) Not pink, not coral, RED. And this was the only one that fit the bill. I was annoyed at the price, and thought (correctly) that it'd last me FOREVER. But...it's just so PRETTY on! And man, I barely tap my finger in it, and it's enough for both cheeks! I don't use it on my lips, got plenty of red lipstick. I like to blend it with my Real Tech expert brush, after applying with fingers. If it's going to be a long day, I sometimes waft just a touch of Milani Red Vino blush over it with a fan brush, helps set the color. I have so much blush that some don't get used much; this is in the top 2 of those I use regularly (the other is my HG blush, L'Oreal True Match powder blush in Tender Rose). Oh, another thing: If you are worried about creme blush clogging pores, this one doesn't. And while it gives a beautiful flush, it isn't greasy or sparkly...I guess you could say dewy?

This is a perfect, cranberry red shade. It's my holy grail fall-winter blush, as it makes you look like you just spent a few hours on the slopes. I own 5 CC's (petunia, gladiola, peony, camelia and poppy). I have found that only poppy works on my lips as well as my cheeks, which I love because I'm a totally minimalist when it comes to makeup. I use a normal blush brush and literally just tap it on the pan, then I blot it on the apples of my cheeks blending upward. On my lips I use my finger and just dab it on. For the record, I have NC35 skin, dark brown hair and brown eyes. I think this shade is pretty universal just be careful if you have pale skin because this is super pigmented!

This has been in countless magazines over the last ten years. I think Stila was one of the first brands to create a multi- purpose product, and a compact that is the same tint as the product inside. I chose Poppy because it's the most versatile for my style. This gives a beautiful flush to your cheeks and red rose lips on the go. Love the name, too!

Add me to the list of believers. A SA suggested it, I cringed, but it is by far the most flattering blush I own. Plus the CCs last longer than any other cream blush I've tried. I'm NC35ish for reference, brown eyes and hair. It's a gorgeous, sheer color.

I've seen that a lot of theses reviews suggest it for fair skinned girls, but I have Hispanic and Middle Eastern heritage, and predictably olive skin, and this is the best blush for my skin that I've found. It's exactly that flattering color that happens when you're endearingly embarrassed by friends or just came in from the cold. Like a healthy, fresh glow, kinda girl next door. More of a winter product, and not really 'glowy' but flattering. Also doesn't break me out or clog pores, gorgeous packaging. I have a bit of trouble blending, you have to do it fast while the product is warm and before it sets. Great color, and not bad value for price

As mentioned by most reviewers here, this is a gorgeous colour if you have pale skin. I am very pale and I reach for this almost every day. You get a beautiful 'Snow White' look - just amazing.

Use sparingly, the pigmentation is very high - which is a plus as this compact should last a really long time.

Of all the cream blushes I've used, Stila's are amongst my favourites. The colour pay off is amazing and the staying power is good. For me I can get away with this for a whole work day, so about 11h from when I put this on in the morning. I find that with my oily skin I need to blot during the day, but the colour still remains and looks nice and fresh, not too dewy.

I apply this either with my ring finger or a dense face/stippling brush. This blends easily as well so if you make a mistake, keep blending!

I also have the colour Lilium, which is another one of my favourites.

I just repurchased this product. I agree with one of the posters above, it is great for women with pale skin - it gives a really natural flush. The colour is pretty, looks great on lips too, and the product is easy to apply. Stila was not available in the UK for a while and I am so glad it's back!

Pro: color is gorgeous and flattering on most skin tones; cream blush is easy to apply; amount in compact literally lasts forever

Cons: price is expensive; not very long wearing, even with a primer (need a couple touch up during day); NOT AT ALL appropriate for lips as the formula is 1. waaaay too drying 2. the absolute worse color to put on lips.

I love these. I have poppy, gladiola and rose. They are fab used as a cream blush for a natural look, and also wear well as a glossy lip colour.

Poppy is such a lovely colour. I love red lippy, but sometimes it's a bit too much for daytime wear. This is lovely though. It gives a proper red - not pink - colour, with a little bit of gloss (think balm rather than gloss) and is easy to reapply. I particularly like using it when I want dramatic eyes and red lippy but don't want to have that all-out glamour look.

I love the cute compact it comes in too. I'ts fairly pricey, but for the amount of time it lasts for it works out cheap in the long run. Highly recommend.

This color has to be used sparingly or else it is like a clown red on the cheeks. I tried to like it based on the recommendation of an MUAer. I saved it for my daughter's halloween costume makeup.
