Not the best shadow I've ever bought, but not the worst. I wish their was a little less fallout when applied, but i do really like the color. The color looks pinky in the pan, but when applied is more of a goldish toned shimmery nude. I find wet n wild eyeshadows better formulated, but I love this color as a staple in my collection.

This is a pretty medicore shadow. It's a very light, sheer pink with huge chunks of gold glitter, although there isn't a lot of fallout when applied. It really just doesn't excite me, and it takes a lot to show up on the lids. Wouldn't rebuy.

I bought this as a dupe for Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy, and it's a pretty close match though Flushed looks like it's a step lighter than the original. The main reason I bought the dupe version is because it has a fine shimmer as opposed Midnight Cowboy which has chunks of glitter rather. But I found that what glitter is in Flushed also migrates to my cheeks and other parts of my face...grrr. Even with a good primer underneath (I got a sample of the new NARS one), it still went everywhere. No re-buy for me, though the color is still very pretty and a good match for Midnight Cowboy.

When I first got this e/s, it became my staple. I've stopped using it for a while and have gone back to it again. The color is a very soft pink, with some gold glitter. The glitter seems to be a bit big, for my liking. By mid-day, I would find some sparklies on my lashes and on my cheeks. For this reason, I don't wear it all the time.
This eyeshadow in "flushed" color is poorly made. However, I have tried other Presitge eyeshadows that are excellent in quality. I would not hesitate to buy more Prestige products, but just not this particular color again.

Meh. I bought it for its appearance in the pan, but when I got it home it looked different and then, when I actually applied it, it looked even more different (not in a good way). On my skin it showed up as a pale frosty pink with gold sparkles. (gag!) Looked like the type of makeup you get in a little child's 'makeup' play kit or something. Just gross. The texture disappointed me as well – not silky, and somewhat chalky/crumbly. What you get the most of when you apply this shadow is, by far, SPARKLES. Tons and tons of shimmering gold sparkles. Not a finely milled product, either, so it really is like pieces of small glitter, rather than a nice shimmering 'pearlescent' frosty sparkle, if that makes sense. I don't know what to do with this stuff; probably give it to my niece or something for playing dress-up...she's 4.

I really, really like this eyeshadow! I discovered it like 5 years and it works great! In the pan, it appears to be pinkish-goldish and when applied, it looks like a very translucent shimmery color with golden sparkles that are not over bearing. I don't wear eyeshadow that much but when I do, I usually go for the brown/gold look and this stuff works great as a highlight or accent color!

This is pretty glittery, and goes on fairly smoothly. However, it does have a little too way too much shimmer for me (i like e/s more along the lines of MAC frost finishes).

Years ago Revlon made a great colour called Pink Shell in their Wet/Dry line. And of course they discontinued it as many cosmetics companies do when you find something that you love and use religiously. I have tried many shades of peachy/pink shimmers since then including a very close MAC Naked Lunch. Till right about now. This colour is my missing link to that. I tend to judge eyeshadows more on how they settle throughout the day and because I do use a heavy face cream and powder on my eyes before I apply my shadow to allow for a more even pigment, believe me, non-creasing rich colour is hard to come by. This stuff is pure genius. The colour by days end is richer if that's even possible and no creases. It's my new basic daily staple and looks phenomenal on anyone with green or blue eyes. And for the price, I can't get over the quality.

Awful! I picked up this color as an impulse buy at the drugstore because it looked nice enough to wear as a wash on my lids. It's a rosy champagne color with (what appeared to be) small golden flecks throughout. When I brought this home and swatched it dry on my hand, those "small golden flecks" popped out as chunky gold glitter, and the base color was very sheer; it took quite a few swipes to get this color to show up on my skin. Not yet defeated, I decided to try foiling this on my lids. Applied wet over UDPP I was pleased that the color was brought up to how it appears in the pan, although I still wasn't too excited over the glittery parts in it.
Fast forward to a few hours later, my eyes start feeling irritated. Now although I do wear contacts, I wouldn't classify my eyes as sensitive as I've worn all kinds of pigments and mineral eyeshadows without ever experiencing any sort of eye irritation. I look in the mirror and realize there is some serious glitter fallout going on, underneath my eyes and along the top of my cheekbones I'm covered in gold sparkles. Since "disco queen" wasn't exactly the look I was going for with this, not to mention eyes filled with glitter sting like crazy, Flushed is going straight to the cosmetics graveyard. At least I can take comfort in the fact I'm only out four bucks for this one!

All the reviews about the cover breaking are starting to worry me! But in the meantime, I've had this product for awhile, and it the package is still holding up. This product is a beautiful color, and I can wear it lightly in the day for a neutral look, or layer it on my eyelids and dust it all over my face for a bold, ethereal look at night. (I also have v. sensitive eyes, and this product didn't irritate my eyes at all) I haven't tried this product wet yet, but I will most certainly try it.

This is by far one of my favorite eyeshadows! My mom actually bought it first and I then borrowed it and decided to get one for myself. It is a neutral pink- gold shadow with gold glitter. Everytime I wear it, I always get compliments ( so does my mom). While the glitter does fall onto your cheeks after applying the eyeshadow- I tend to like it. You do need to use a few good swipes of the shadow to get some good color, but other than that it is a great shade. I usually use brown shadow as my eyeliner and pair this as my base eyeshadow. For the price, and the beautiful color- this is a staple in my makeup bag- I do recommend it.

This color looks an absolutely wonderful shimmery peachy-champagne color in the pan but once on your lids, it's a whole 'nother story. I sometimes believe that Prestige shadows are comparable to MAC ones but this one unfortunately is not one of them. This color is not pigmented enough in my opinion. So since this is not very pigmented, I have to go over my lid multiple times to get an acceptable amount of color which by that time, my under eye area is glitter fall-out galore. This is a mix of shimmer and glitters so I guess it's understandable but I'm still disappointed in it.

This is a great shimmery nuetral. I have oily Asian eyelids and this color doesn't smudge unitl at least five hours later! I hate the packaging though. The top part always breaks.

This shade is flattering for multiple complexions; my sister and I both use it (she's tan and I'm fair) and complements blue eyes very well. I use a brown eyeliner under mine and usually get compliments when I go out. It costs about 4 dollars or so, so it's relatively cheap and lasts a long time, I've only had to repurchase twice. Definitely worth trying.

This is my "leave it at work in case of an emergency" eyeshadow...it's similar to a lot of my favorites (UD X, Milani Illusion) except more on the champagne side, and the only reason that I don't use this regularly is because of the glitter fallout. I also have to apply this wet over UDPP in order to get any color payoff whatsoever, but the color it gives is worth it. MMM/NC35/Oily
EDIT: This is going in the trash...four hours after application I was horrified to see the lower half of my face covered in gold glitter. Buh-bye!

I got this on sale so I only paid 2.99 for it, not bad for the price. It is very sparkly, I find i get more color pay off when I use it wet. But I like the subtle look for day so that's ok. I also like the soft sparkly pink as a highlighter on the tops of cheekbones. Gorgeous color for such a low price!

This is my first eye shadow single by Prestige, and I have to say I'm not disappointed. It's a pinky-peach with gold shimmer, generously sized for $3.99. I'm very pale, and this was softly pigmented--works great as an overall wash. The gold glitter/shimmer shows up easily and looks gorgeous and soft without being over the top. My only complaint is that the little catch on the lid of the shadow was broken when I got it so the lid doesn't snap shut. Therefore, cheap packaging. But...the shadow is gorgeous and I can see this becoming a staple in my e/s arsenal. I would repurchase this shade, and am eager to try some of the other shades that are on my Wishlist. I am also eager to try this one wet, as another reviewer recommended.

Oh, my God! This shadow color is the HG of my subtle, natural look. I absolutely adore its pale goldish pink shimmer. I've been looking for a shade that added a subtle lift of color to complement my eyes and skin tone on days where I didn't want to look too glammed out, or too bland with my taupe colors. MAC's shadows were just a little too intense and didn't carry the exact shade I was looking for. Well, Prestige did! The trick is to first use a cream shadow base that matches my skintone. I use MAC's paint in Sublime Nature and smooth a thin layer all over my eyes where I want to apply the shadow. Before this base completely dries, I dip and completely coat my e/s brush with Flushed and dab it onto my eyes. It adheres well to the cream base and just looks beautiful on my eyes. I don't mind the few drops of glitter onto my face. It actually adds just the right amount of sparkle to top off my look. I complete my natural look with a swish of brown shadow into my crease and masacara. Voila!!!
EDIT: TRY THIS SHADOW WET!!! It's even more gorgeous! It's more intense than using it with a cream shadow base so it's perfect for special occasions and a glammed night out! Must buy more (I know I can afford it) because I will use this up quickly despite its generous amount packaging. I LOVE THIS!

Beautiful color in the pan, so I had to buy it. It's very sheer...it took about 4 applications to show up on my very pale skin. The glitter fell all over my face, but I'm hoping it will stay put if I use a base. It was fairly long-lasting, though. Normally shadows crease almost instantly on me, but this one waited a few hours. I'd buy it again...if I could figure out how to keep the glitter on my EYE and not my face!

Gorgeous - in the pan. Outside of that, there's not much color payoff from this gold based pink, even as a highlighter. A Prestige shadow I'll be doing without.
