I have been using this blush for years (probably since it came out) and still love it. I have light-medium skin and this gives me a nice rosy glow. It can look intimidating because it's dark in the tube but a little goes a long way and the intensity goes down alot when you blend it in. Especially if you have moisturizer/foundation on your skin before putting it on. I also put a teensy amount of moisturizer on my cheeks to make blending it in easier on my dry skin. I agree w/other reviewers on here saying it staying power is disappointing. I put a very light dusting of powder blush in the same color range over it and voila!!, it stays all day. I think as a rule, you need to do that over any cream blush for staying power. Recommend highly!!

Love the creamy texture that's not too oily. I usually swipe my finger two rounds and apply to my cheek or dab about a 1 inch circle onto my cheek and blend. Once applied, it gives a nice reddish blush on my NC35 skin. Easy to layer on more if you need a stronger color.
Tube is small and product amount seems to be little but a little goes a long way. I like that it won't smudge on the sides as long as you wind it down before closing the cap.
Sometimes I use it alone just for a natural blush look instead of full makeup look. I've never tried the other colors but I think they'll be too light for my skin color so definitely sticking to Berry.
I layer this with mark's Cameo Glow for a longer lasting blush.

Very cute packaging and a great product. Colour is a pinky berry colour, very natural and flattering (I have medium tone skin). Great price, very compact and long lasting. Highly recommended.

Great product! Easily blendable (unlike Tarte's massive cheek stains) and perfect packaging. It's compact and easy to pack. It also looks beautiful. Gives you a flush of color that's both natural and noticiable. Two thumbs up.

I like this product. It's a nice colour, easily blended. Lasting power is not great, though - it fades throughout the day. I don't use it anymore.

I really really love the idea of this product. It's a stick that goes on fast and easy for a fresh look.
It's easy to apply and blend, and you can add more for bolder looks and less for an everyday look.
I just don't think it has much staying power. It's gone in two hours for me. I'll use it up as my in-purse touch up blush, but probably won't replace it.
Reference: I've got light tan skin with a light yellow undertone, and I can wear this in winter and summer (with and without a tan).

I love this blush, I am not a fan of powder and it is very creamy. It glides on easily and I use a makeup pad to rub it in. It stays for a long time too. I come home from school and I still have a reddish tint. (not as good as first application but stayed nicely.) My best friend loves it too!

Perfect natural color, love how easy the application is and how it feels on my skin! Definitely will buy more of these.

I like this as a nice berry stain for lips and cheeks. It isn't the best but I got this as a gift and I like it well enough to keep using it, but not to get another one. It gives me a nice natural flush but only if I apply and blend with fingertips. Applying right from the stick doesn't go well.

UPDATE: 07/12/2009--Tried this on awhile back, and just doesn't look the same...and texture is different as well...hmmm.Perhaps I've been spoiled by my liquid lipstains!!
J'adore this blush! I was looking for something to replace my beloved Revlon cheek stain gel (Cheeky Cherry) and Just Bitten lip stain (Cherry Tart), but it seems that both have been discontinued :( ...these were some of the only products I paid a nice amount of dough for (well $9 a pop is a bit pricey for this beauty-bargain hunter,lol)and they were worth every penny because they lasted for ages! Being stuck with the plight of finding similar products, I had done a bit of research, and while both Vincent Longo and the new Target line "Pixi" looked like promising options to supply my "stain" fix, they're a little pricier than I would like. Please don't get me wrong; I am a cosmetic junkie/connoisseur(sp.?)/amateur chemist, and am willing to pay a fair price for quality products that are beneficial, now and in the long run, but it is beyond me why we beautiful ladies should pay more if we find something that does the job beautifully, and is cheap to boot! Fast forward to my meeting with mark., where I found this decadent gem! For $6 (American) dollars!! Now, being a multiracial AA femme, I had doubts about how this product would register on my yellow-toned (I'm from the South where the word they use to best describe me is "yellabone",lol)skin, but it seemed dark enough, so I applied it, and voila! Instant rosy-cheeked innocence and charm! :D Tres jolie! Rosy cheeks, berry bee-stung lips....I tell you, ladies, it just doesn't get any better than that!

I bought this to use as my blush during the summer. I love it! I put bronzer and illuminizer over it and it looks great. The only thing I wish mark. would do is make more colors. Sometimes the berry color can be overwhelming if I put too much on. With this, its all in the application process. Other than that, will be repurchasing and recommend.

Hmmm...why do people like this? Just pinche, Milani, ulta brand eyeshadow, people liking these horrible products. These are the great mysteries of the universe. I hate this thing. It makes me look like Im having a hot flash, it makes me look like a five year old who got into mommies makeup, it makes me look like my grandma who loves blush a little too much. Id toss it but theres got to be something I can do with it, or someone I can give it to... mabye my grandma.

I'm on tube #2. This is hands down my fav blush. I am very fair but recently had a "vacation tan" and this blush worked for me both ways. I have fairly oily skin but even so, this blush lasts all day for me. I do prepare my skin well (exfoliate, moisturize, liquid foundation applied with a blush) and that might make a difference. Don't know. But this is the only blush I have ever tried that actually stays on all day and yet doesn't look like I have blush on. If that makes sense. It's very natural and sheer. I'd definitely recommend this product. By the way, my 13 year old daughter raves about it too (I'm in my 40's).

Hands-down my favourite blush. It's so sweet and subtle and on my very pale skin looks so very natural. When I first apply it it looks very pink and bright but within seconds fades to the most beautiful shade that makes me look slightly flushed -- like "is she wearing blush or isn't she?" It looks particularly sweet when I layer mark Kitten Glo over top.

I didn't like this product nearly as much as everyone else, it seems. It does go on very easily, and blends smoothly. But those pluses are greatly outweighed by the facts that it hardly lasts any time at all, it's slighly pink, and it lays on top of my skin and never seems to dry or sink in (which is possibly why it doesn't last). I also tried Sunny, and found that color very dark. In the ads it looks like a lovely golden red, but in the tube and on my skin I could see no red at all.

This is the perfect blush for me. It looks so dark in the tube and I was worried because of my fair skin (literally the lightest in every mu brand ever invented). But this is the perfect, most natural flush on me. Waaaay better than tarte. And, if has a beautiful skin-feeling finish, absolutely no stickiness. It is a small product, so i'll be interested to see how long it lasts (but PERFECT for travel) but for now i am giving this 110%!

I have this one (Berry), the Nude and the Bronze shades now and will probably get Pink one of these days. I love them all. As others have mentioned, these are a great alternative to Tarte Cheekstains except for the stickiness factor, meaning they don't have it. Mark's blush sticks are about the size of the mini Cheekstains from the holiday sets, but the product is more pigmented and doesn't have a dewy look. You can apply a little for a sheer flush, or layer for a deeper color. All the shades I have go on flawlessly, blend evenly, last a long time, have no sticky feeling, no scent and don't cause breakouts. Another great item from Mark!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is an absolutely lovely product. It's very inexpensive (I think I paid $6) and the small and compact size is great for tossing in your bag. It's a multi-use item - I use on cheeks and lips, it leaves a lovely flush/stain and while the package is small a little goes a long way. Definitely a great alternative for those wanting to try Tarte (but are turned off by the high price or stickiness of that product)!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
This is a great color in a very portable package. Fits nicely into your purse. Gives a nice sheer color that is very flattering.
