This review is for the color Pink Glow. I've had mine for quite a while, don't even remember when I bought it. First off, the packaging sucks. The stiff brush is crap. I use a Sigma blush brush to apply and it works great. I am NW15 so it is hard to find a pink blush that doesn't make me look like a clown. This shade is perfect if you are super fair. I like that it is kind of like a blush and highlighter all in one. There is a little shimmer but you won't look like a disco ball. Very subtle glow.

This stuff is okay...nothing to write home about
I give it such a poor rating because it left me skin looking chalky dull and dry
I think I've come to realize that I just can't use mineral based foundations
but, even at that the product never covered evenly and always made me look like i was wearing make up in some spots and not others I guess this goes along with the dryness of my skin
Also the package kind of sucks...never figured out how the stuff worked...do you open u the whole thing and dip in the brush or shake it like crazy so the product goes up the brush...idk either way not a good product for dry skin

On the shelf, this looks like a loose powder blush with a kabuki brush included that AUTOMATICALLY DISTRIBUTES the powder via some kind of mysterious and therefore expensive channel; powder to tip, maybe by shaking? Already, this forewarns us of a need to tap the brush (read: waste product) but I considered this acceptable, if not standard for a loose powder. REALITY: this is an awkwardly designed screw off brush that you have to dip into a large and hard to manage pile of loose powder (no sifter) in a flimsy plastic cup. Its awkward, time consuming, and the brush picks up the powder so unevenly and high up in the bristles that clown cheeks are almost inevitable, even with vigorous "tapping". Worthless waste of money and packaging. Also, the texture of the blush itself is very chalky, not smooth or luxurious in the least.

I was torn when writing this review. Overall, the blush is nice. I have the color Bare Honey. It's a nude brown deep pinkish color. I think the color can be very versatile. The pigmentation is great. It has a subtle shimmer that is flattering without looking too young. However, this is priced just way too high. I found this at the drugstore for $16.50. Luckily I had a coupon, so I paid $14.50, which is still a lot in my opinion. That's too much in my opinion. This is especially high because I feel that a couple of dollars goes towards the crappy packaging. Look, it's obvious that this is supposed to be a drugstore version of Bare Minerals blush. Put it in a regular container with a sifter and call it a day. Also, I don't think this wears as long as the regular True Match blush. That's why I gave this a 3 instead of a 4.

it's a great everyday blush, perfect color and so easy to apply!definitely a do!

Just got this a week or so ago in Bare Honey. Perfect color for my skin tone (NC42/MUFE#153). Gives a natural, warm glow that makes my cheeks look pretty and doesn't make me break out. It is on the pricier side for a drugstore brand-I got it on sale for $10 at Walgreens, but I think it's normally $14 or so. Packaging is a little bulky but I've been using this one so much lately that I just keep it on top of my sink. Would definitely buy this again.

Like everyone else here, I think the packaging is large and awkward and a waste of plastic. The brush it comes with is too scratchy and picks up too much blush. I use my own blush brush instead. I dump a tiny bit into the cap and swirl my brush in it and then apply. I like this blush because it doesn't seem to be giving my skin problems (at least not at much as usual). The price is a little steep considering you can buy high end blush for about $5 more but I like this product so to me it's worth it. I don't find that I need to reapply throughout the day so it has good staying power. If I ever run out (which will be a long time from now--I've had this a year and have half of it left), I will repurchase because it's great for just everyday wear.

Soft Rose is an amazing color on me. Me and my mom used to share it. It worked well on her tan skin, and my fair skin both. I looked so pretty wearing it. I haven't been able to find it for anything under 15 dollars lately, and I don't want to spend that much of one product.
The packaging is something I HATE. It's just bulky. The brush is pretty bad and I just wish I got only the product, not the extra bells and whistles.
Come on, bare is beautiful. Leave all that extra crap behind!

I have purchased this blush in 40 Soft Rose and the color is great, the packaging is NOT! This didn't really make me break out but it did somehow make my scars appear redder and more harsh..here's why: the brush is tiny, it seems like it's more for contouring than easy application because of its rough texture. I'm not sure what it's made of but I feel like its harsh on my skin. Because of the rough texture, my scars showed more; the brush felt like it was digging through my foundation just to make the scars appear...it was that rough! Keep in mind, I kinda have baby skin on my face so maybe that's the reason why I felt this way. You're probably wondering, why don't I just use another brush? Well first of all, I don't have a brush small enough to fit through the palette or holes or whatever they're called, and second of all...call me crazy/OCD/whatever...I like to use the brush/tool that comes with the product I buy, whatever product it is...I'm just weird like that. LOL
Due to the tiny packaging, after you've had this product for a while, the powder starts flying everywhere, especially if you tend to carry it around...which sucks!
I like the color though and I really think that if it wasn't for the brush then my scars wouldn't show as much. That's why I've decided to put the powder in different packaging and make use out of it.
Note: I just noticed I have different packaging than the one on the photo. Mine applies for the UK version of the blush, the longer one. The shorter/smaller one is the US version.
I'll post some pictures so that all what I said would make sense.

I really wanted to love this blush, but it made my cheeks break out. I typically don't have an issue with products on my cheeks, but this causes pimples within hours.
It is expensive for a drugstore makeup but you get enough to last forever. The packaging is awkward at first, but I didn't have excessive spilling. The brush is usable. I would prefer it didn't come with one though, as it sheds so much.
I have "soft rose" and the color actually darkens and changes after a few hours. I'm disappointed as I've never had this issue before.

I have a love hate relationship with this blush. I bought Bare Honey 2 years ago since I thought I have to wear dark blushes because i am not a PPP. Because this is my first loose powder blush, it takes a while for me to get the right amount. Sometimes it make me look like a clown, while others, it looks beautiful on me. The brush that came with this, can be a pain. I use skunk brush to apply it now. packaging is awful, bulky and take a lot of space. That is the main reason why I will not repurchase.

i've used the l'oreal bare naturale mineral powder for about 3 years or so, but i just recently picked this up, as i was reluctant to spend $13 or so on a blush. however, it will last me virtually forever, and since i love it, i'm glad i took the leap of faith =)
the color is very natural looking, and blends easily over top of the mineral foundation (which i currently wear on top of a cream or liquid foundation). It can be layered for a more dramatic lok, or applied lightly for a barely-there glow.
the only ting i DONT like about it i sthe packaging, which isa sifter container. i find that its hard to get the exact amount i want in the top part to swirl my brush in, and i dont want to end up with too much blush on! usually i end up with a bit too much on, so i just blend it back out a bit with the mineral podwer foundation.
in the even that i do someday run out, i will probably buy agian, provided i havent fallen in love with some other blush by then )

I bought no 70 and I love love love this colour and product! Finally found the perfect shade of coral. Goes on flawlessly and smoothly. Looks stunning! A bit expensive but a little goes a long way.

I like this blush,
it gives my cheeks a pink shine without making me look like a clown.
it lats long, and blends easily, i will buy again (:
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
I love this. I have it in 40, tender rose and it suits me perfectly. The other day I had it one someone commented that I didn't look as peel as usual and I looked better. :D haha.
And doesn't irritate my cheeks at all. ♥

I bought this blush in Soft Coral (70). I love that it's crumbly. It looks more natural and lie better on the skin this way. The can is very small and at first the brush seems uncomfortable to use. But after a couple of times, you get used to it... I like the color, it looks very natural... And the price is ok, so is the quality. So, I'll definitely buy it again! :)

I really like these blushes. They're as good as BE, the only thing lacking is the shade selection, which isn't as broad as BE. But they last a long time and blend well and have good color payoff. I don't really like the container b/c it's so bulky, and I prefer to use my own brush. I normally just dump it into an empty sifter container from sephora.

This product is okay, I have the shimmering bronze one, haha even though its a blush. :)
its good, there is subtle shimmer, which i love, and it looks natural just like it claims.
the wierd thing is it only looks good on me in the summer when i am very dark and tan, in the winter, i tried putting it on, it looks unnatural and doesnt really show up. i have medium skin by the way.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Blond, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Blue
this was such a good idea, i usually dont wear blush. the color sat on my skin like a dream, sublty highlighting and giving my cheeks a swash of rosy highlight! I would recommend this to anyone, it seems to layer well. i love the soft funny looking white tipped brush that doesnt deposit too much stuff.

I've been wanting to try a mineral blush so I bought this in "Soft Rose" on sale at Shoppers for $13.99 CDN after reading all of the great reviews for this product.
Soft Rose is a very soft and pretty pink that is highly pigmented so you only need a little bit to get a nice flush. Lasting power is decent. I noticed that it did fade a bit after several hours. Granted, it may have been because the pigment matched my natural flush so well that it seemed as if it had faded.
Although noticeable only under very bright lights, there is some sparkle in this blush. I found out only when I was applying make-up under a reaIlly bright light in a semi-dark room. I panicked at first, seeing all the glitter, but after taking another look in the mirror in normal lighting, the sparkle had completely disappeared.
Perhaps it's just my lack of experience with loose powders, but the blush can get everywhere if I'm not careful. I usually opt to open the container over a sink or garbage container if possible. I'm not a fan of the packaging. I tried using the brush it comes with, but it was terrible, so I've been using my Too Faced retractable kabuki instead.
Overall a good blush with a nice hue, decent lasting power, and extremely lightweight. I can't feel it at all after application. A lippie off for the glitter (though not noticeable, I dislike glitter) and packaging.
