lovely colour, natural-looking, goes on mild but I like it that way because then it would be hard to accidentally pile on a lot of blush and end up looking like a clown. Fades a little as the day goes by, but that's without a primer or setting powder. Will update when I try setting this.

This is my go-to bronzer for PPP. I am someone who always found bronzers to be too orange/too dark. This is not the same.
I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle in the summer). I love this bronzer for during the winter when I am NW10. It's light enough to work for warm, neutral, and cool tones, and when stippled on, starts off very gradual and can be built up to create dimension in the face and shadows. Looks very natural but plays up your skin tone. Does not make your face "look flat" as it has a tiny bit of shimmer. Slightly chalkier than my other favorite blush, Tarte Park Avenue Princess, but very blendable nonetheless.
I must admit, when I am NW15-20 in the summer, I prefer a bronzer that is just a tiny bit bolder and cooler in tone, hence the Park Avenue Princess. You get a similar amount of product, same slight shimmer, just a bit bolder and deeper in tone. But for 6 months out of the year, I am loyal to this product.

This is a lovely blush. I never would have seen it in the store and picked it up, but I was briefly using True Match's cream to powder foundation in W1 (perfect match to my skin tone) and this was the matching blush. I hated it the fist time I used it, I applied it with a heavy hand, which is a big no-no with this blush. The trick to Bare Honey is in it's ease, just a swipe of a fluffy brush on the product followed by a swipe on your cheeks and you are good to go! I looks beautiful and very natural, it keeps my face looking healthy all year round, love it.

Note: I have cool skin (I tend to say I'm NW10) but I use True Match foundation in N1 (the C1 was a bit too pink & not as light).
I picked this up kind of on a whim. I stopped using most bronzers since they tended to be too dark for me & if I used them on my face my neck would end up being *much* lighter, etc, etc. I liked the idea of adding some warmth/contouring but never found a product I really liked.
Enter Bare Honey. At first I tried as a blush, which was fine. But then I tried as a contour and it was subtle & really nice. There is some shimmer in it, which is a "no" for contouring but I haven't noticed any OTT effects so far so I guess its ok. It's a really light tan shade which is what I needed. I will continue to use unless I discover I look like a glitterbomb in certain light. lol

For reference, I'm NC 40 with defined but low cheekbones and a small face.
The Honey (it's also number 205) is a dull coral/brown in the pan. There's no shimmer once it's applied and you can flip the case upwards to see a tiny mirror and a little flat blush brush. It's all contained in a round case that fits in my palm - nice!
On my skin, Honey is a colour that is impossible to overuse. beyond a point, it just won't show up no matter how much I layer on - and that's fantastic. It's a luminescent matte and I'm always left with a faint warm flush coming out of the sides of my face, never pinky splotches on my cheeks.
I usually use this with a fluffy round blush, but I've used it with the accompanying brush too and the only difference is that it takes longer to soften the tide marks this way.
I've also found that the Honey is more noticeable when I've applied it over foundation than on a bare face - I guess it builds on some sort of pigmented base.
I'm not much of a blush person, but I tend to reach for the Honey when my look focuses on the eyes - it somehow works better for me than wearing it with a bold lip.

I have to say that I don't care too much for this. The color is very pretty and I thought being that I'm super fair it would look great on my skin. But it's barely there, you have to really layer it on. I can't imagine how people that are tan use this. All in all it's not horrible but I will be returning it. I think I'll stick to high end blushes.

This did nothing for me. It goes on like a stripe of dirt onto my skin. I am a pale natural redhead complexion with a bit of rosacea, freckles and sensitive skin.
Although it is marketed for very pale warm complexions (W1-2) I think the N1-2 called Precious Peach is much better for people of that skin tone. That one goes on clear and fresh looking, with a natural glow.
Bare Honey (W1-2) goes on darker and dirtier looking. Even with fake tan on and bronzer, my skin looks bad with this blush. It may be better as a contour shade, but watch out for the dirt smear effect.
On the bright side, it didn't make my redness look redder, but then neither did the Precious Peach shade.
The compact is annoying. The round shape is great but the latch is difficult to work, and there is a useless scratchy brush included as well as a mirror.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blush!
It gives me that warm glow and can double as a contour shade for just under your cheekbone! The shimmers don't show up on my face, and the brush that it comes with is surprisingly really soft.
Although it is priced at $10, it is really worth it and has a lot of product in it. There are 6 grams which will last me at least until this time next year given that I use it every day...

My shade with True Match is W1 mixed with a little of the C1 shade. I have very fair skin and I love how L'Oreal has given me hope with True Match. Maybelline, Revlon, CoverGirl, they're always just too dark! I love the concept of matching the blush with the shades of foundation. I really do like this blush although I agree with another reviewer who recently said that if you aren't careful, it can look like a fake tan. I made that mistake the first time and learned my lesson. A little goes a long way! The brush that comes with it is actually handy because it picks up just the right amount of blush. This is definitely worth the money because for me, it works as both a blush and a bronzer, all in one! =)

Im an W2 in the powder so I bought this and I found that the "warm" lines of the blushes are more bronzers, so I use this as my bronze & absolutely love it :) Perfectly with well dressed blush!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Brown
Recently I began using True Match foundation (the liquid kind) and I LOVE it. W2 is the perfect shade for me and this is the blush that corresponds so I decided to try it. I have very mixed feelings about this blush. At first I thought it was too orange, but that is because I put way too much on. It only takes a tiny bit as this blush is very pigmented, one of the best things about it. The shade is a peachy tan color, definitely warm in tone, but personally I wish it was a little more of a peachy pink. The effect is much better with a lighter application but still feels a bit off to me, like it is almost similar to a bronzer and applied wrong looks like a bad fake tan. I barely tan at all, even in the summer because I am religious about sunscreen and I worry about this looking unnatural. I actually quite like the brush that comes with it, it has very soft bristles and a slight angle to it to let you follow the shape of your cheek more naturally. The formula is wonderful, feels soft and light going on and stays well and the price is decent, under $10 even on regular price, though I found it for 40% off. I am going to keep trying this... maybe by layering it with pinker blushes that I already have and I've never quite mastered bronzer (tips anyone?) so maybe this will be a good tester. I think this will be a better shade when it warms up a little outside and the tan tone of the color looks a little more natural.

This is a really nice blush. The color is a warm peachy color which looks good on pretty much every skin tone. I usually wear this with my bronzer and it looks great. Great for day time wear, or in the summer. It's very pigmented so a little goes a very long way and the color is buildable,but you really won't need a lot! I have had this blush for well over a year now and there's still plenty more of it! The brush that it comes with isn't so bad either and is very convenient on days when you are in a hurry. I would purchase it again, but there are so many colors in this collection that I want to try, I dont know if I'll be able to.

This is my favorite blush shade because it looks natural and goes perfect with the tan look. It blends nicely, the color is buildable, and it has the right amount of shimmer which doesn't overpower the color. The blush however doesn't stay on my face for a long time.

What a great find this blush was!!
This is a great neutral/nude blush with great pigmentation and a slight shimmer. As it climbs above 100 degrees this summer, my fair skin can be red enough on it's own. I decided I wanted to look for a more neutral glow.
I've always loved the True Match line, though the blushes all looked pretty anti-climactic to me: no colors ever grabbed me. Probably because they are so natural looking. Chalk this up to something MUA has inspired me to try: I always thought blushes should be pink or peach or something other than what non-makeup-junkies would categorize as "tan." I checked the reviews here and decided that Bare Honey was a good bet, and a cheap way to test drive a new look. WOW!!!
I love this blush!! What a great color!!! Great pigmentation, smooth and easy to blend, slight glowy quality, great value for the money. The compact has a mirror on the other side and a brush. The brush I don't use: I love my 109, but the mirror is a nice size.
Overall, this has helped me create the perfect, natural, easy to maintain summer glow!!!! I really want to try some of the other colors now, since I would have normally walked right past this color if it weren't for MUA!!!
Edited to add: this blush is VERY soft. I've never broken a blush before, but this one dropped and smashed all over the place. I went back for another and noticed that several others were smashed as well. So beware: try not to drop this baby!

This is a really pretty blush. It is a nice peachy tone and looks great on my light skin. I only wish it came in a loose powder form. Otherwise, it is the most perfect blush ever.

I am a newbie with blush and there was a sale in my Rite Aid so I decided to pick this up. I love it, and it truly makes me want to try other blushes. It give my face a light glow with very little glitter. Its shimmery in a pretty ( not to much, not to little). Its a peachy, goldish color and it shows up on my skin great and also lasts. I will be buyin this color again and tryin more from this line.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I was excited to try this blush after reading the reviews but I think it was overhyped. In the packaging, the shade is similar to that of a regular powder. I was apprehensive because of this but remembered all the positive reviews so I took the plunge. This blush was so light in color that I had to cake it on and I have fairly light skin. After several layers, it still doesn't come close to showing up like my other more pigmented blushes. The color is similar to a light bronzer. I would recommend thisto a fair-skinned individual who wants a very natural look.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Well, I'm a relative newcomer to blush, having really hardly used it before because I thought it didn't *work* on me. I find that most pinkish toned blushers ones often just make my face look ruddy, like I've been out in the wind too long...and not in a good way!
However for some reason this crazy apricot/peach colour blush works beautifully on my skin tone and is really really flattering. I love it!
Also, I really like the case - it closes with a nice click and doesn't feel too cheap and nasty. The brush that comes with it isn't amazing, but will do if you're desperate and there's a little mirror in the bottom which is helpful.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I love the True Match blush line! I have a couple other colors and they all blend well and the shades are very flattering. Bare honey so far is my favorite - it's a very natural peachy-honey shade with some sparkles (sparkles aren't very obvious). Perfect shade to give just a healthy glow of color. This would be a great blush to try for women who normally don't wear blush.
A little pricey, but you can usually find a BOGO with L'Oreal's makeup line.

I love this blush! I don't wear the True Match foundation as I'm between a W2 and W3, and I refuse to buy two bottles to blend. So I wear Revlon Age Defying Makeup with Botafirm in Bare Buff. This blush goes beautifully with it. Bare Honey gives a natural, healthy color to my cheeks. It's very versatile and natural. A gorgeous color with a very light touch of sparkle that I do like. It also goes beautifully with Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Rose Velvet.
