I wanted to love this, and I've still got to give it a 4 out of 5, but like most cream blushes (for me) the application is tricky, and unfortunately there is just not enough lasting power for me to keep fiddling with it. I bought it in charmed and nude, probably in a buy one, get 50% off the second deal (which by the way is something I go for grudgingly, because whatever happened to buy one, get one free?). I keep thinking I'll find a perfect cream blush, and get an effortless glow (RIP, Nars Penny Lane, former HG!), but the truth is they seem to be a tough product to get right, especially for me, but also in general. They have to be emollient enough for dry skin, but not too emollient for oily skin, with enough pigment to last, but not so much you're in instant clown territory, they can't be sticky or tacky after blending, and mostly, they need to hang in there after your lipstick (which has a similar consistency) has worn off. So I have to say that these Photoready blushes have a lot going for them. They have a manageable amount of pigment, and the colors are quite versatile, lively but definitely on the matte side (I tried them together, nude as contour, charmed as "apple" color) and they have enough slip to give you time to blend without being greasy. One perennial issue I have with cream blushes, though, is that my skin reddens IMMEDIATELY upon even mildly firm touch, whether with fingers, brush or sponge, making it really hard for me to gauge how much I've used. So I am always underdone or overdone. But I'd deal with it and try to figure it out if Photoready lasted on me. Unfortunately, it doesn't. I have dry skin, on which I use serum, sunscreen, and tinted moisturizer before using this, and the color vanishes from my face within 4 hours. That last sentence contains so many variables, just for me alone, that I would never rule this product out for anyone else, and in fact would recommend it to anyone looking for a cream blush. I find the quality of this product to be extremely high (go, Revlon!), the packaging is good, the price is excellent, and it never gave me milia after weeks of daily use, which is what I worry about most with emollient products. All in all, a high-end product at a reasonable price.

Love this blush... one of my favourites. I have all the shades but charmed is my preference. It's a bit expensive so I always buy it on sale but in saying that it does last for ages.

This cream blush has been my favorite for the past 3 years or so! I have the color Flushed. It blends in like a dream, and it is very pigmented. I like to dot on my cheeks and blend in with a beauty blender.
It gives me the most natural looking rosy flush as if im not wearing any makeup!
I was just using it this morning and was just getting anxious and worried that this might be discontinued.
I have very many traumatizing incidents where my favorite products gets discontinued so im going to rave about it to let someone know that it can ruin a girls life when they discontinue products hehehe

Got this on clearance in Flushed, glad I didn't pay much. I use cream blush regularly, my favorites being Stila Convertible Color and Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge. Now, I don't expect this to be as good as those are...but this is useless. No color. Not buildable. I have an older Revlon cream blush (in the square flip top rather than the round screw top this one is in) in "First Blush" and it's much better than this one. This is going in my purge box. It's a shame, it looks like a pretty bright pink in the pan.

I bought this after reading in a magazine that it was such a great blush. It's awful. It dries powdery so I might as well use a powder blush that is easier to apply for a natural look. I liked Stila convertible color as a blush. At least that looked nice. Every time I try this blush it disappoints me. I would rather use Stila, or if I use a powder blush then Nars Orgasm or Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes. I would not recommend this. I have drier skin and was hoping a creamier blush would look fresher. My sister is oily skinned and I had her try this and she couldn't make it work either.

These are so gorgeous for the price and for being a drugstore cream blush. I used the color Smitten and it gave me such an amazing look that only Benetint could beat.

Can be a bit greasy feeling after you put it on so perhaps powder over it?

Wouldn't repurchase as I love benetint more but would def recommend as an affordable option to someone who is looking for a good cream blush that is not too comedogenic (a lot of cream blushes contain palmitite or some sort of coconut oil derivative that can be very clogging).

I have the color flushed. It looks a little intimidating in the pan but it goes on pretty sheer.
I used a stippling brush to apply by dabbing onto my cheeks then if needed slightly blended out. It gave a pretty was of color. I could not use this any other way even applying with fingers did not give the look I wanted.
Overall it was nice but did not last that long on my oily skin. Compared to others it did hold up a little better but I got very shiny.
As for the product itself you get quite a bit especially when used the way I used it.
It started to dry out after a while but was still usable.
Pretty color but I probably would not repurchase as I was not overly pleased with it.

I bought this when it fist hit the stores and I'm still on my first pot! I use it every day but you really don't need a lot of product to create the ultimate blushy glow.
It blends so easily and looks very natural and dewy which I absolutely adore! I will never be able to use a powder blush on its own again.
This sometimes gets a tad bit oily on my skin but recently I discovered that using a powder blush underneath it works wonders. I've been getting so many compliments when I combine the two (shhh my top secret beauty tip). I'm really not a fan of sparkly matte powder blushes as I feel it can look fake and cakey on my combination skin and especially on my olive skin tone.
But using a cream blush can sometimes clog my pores and look very oily on a bad day. So all I do to remedy this is apply my powder blush (a very light, soft rosy shade) and pat this over the centre of the applied area. It creates a beautiful natural ombre type of effect.
This is an ultimate must have in my daily makeup routine.

"Charmed Enchantement 150" - Rosy blush

This is a marvellous drug store cream blush, it is long lasting and blendable.
