For anyone else who has 500 blushes in a drawer somewhere that either made you look clown-like, flu-like, chemically-impaired, or the victim of poor bathroom lighting, this might be your new BFF. Or at least a benevolent neighbor you that wave to everyday.

If you are like me and have...um, issues (rosacea, bumpy skin, undertone confusion), blush can be such a challenge that you swear it off! I feels ya. This puppy is what broke me out of a three year color hunger strike. Not sure why, but I'm pretty sure it involved a coupon and some Extrabucks at f-ing CVS (Or as I like to call them, The Seat of Most Evil)

Why it might work for you: It's very subtle (pigment junkies may be disappointed), blends smoothly, and produces very natural-looking flush-like effect. Which is great for disguising iffy texture and mature skin. Also great for beginners because it's easy to control and you don't have to be very precise in your placement. Also, the shade would probably work on ANY skin undertone--warm, cool, neutral, olive or a dissonant mixture, like mine. And, it is weirdly rosacea-friendly--doesn't make the redness appear worse, which most shades definitely do.

Sometimes it's fun to see how many products from one brand you can use to complete a look and experimenting is much more affordable to do with drugstore products! Recently I've been giving Revlon a second chance in several categories. They have yet to make a decent mascara, imho, but lately I feel like Revlon and Maybelline have really been upping their game. Revlon's new blush line is lovely in the sense that it's very finely milled for drugstore. Even though this shade looks crazy vivid in the pan, it's extremely buildable. On my skintone it reads a true coral that leans just a teensy bit pink. You can start with a lighter application for a subtle look or keep applying to reach a color saturation you're comfortable with. Lasting power is a bit iffy but it's a very pretty, natural-looking color so I don't mind refreshing. The brush it come with isn't great for initial application but it's much, much softer than most of the freebie brushes you get---it may be small but it gets the job done for touch ups.

UPDATE: It kills me to take this down in ratings, because I do think it's a pretty color---but I had to subtract a lippie for staying power. I know I had said it was iffy, but the color is so soft in tone to begin with, once it's faded at the end of the day it loses all the subtle, natural charm it had upon first application and at a glance, it looks like I didn't even put blush on. I think I like my blush colors to have just a teensy bit of punch to them.

I used this while at a friends house, and immediately had to buy myself some. I am very pale, so I have had no problem with this being too sheer. It has enough pigment for me and it is the most natural looking blush color I have ever found. The color is stunning. I have been wearing it every day for a few months. It is beautiful. If you are ghostly like me, please try this! You'll love it, I promise!

I only bought this last week and have used it ever day since! It looks over powering in the pot but once on it's lovely the colour is so pretty and blends so well. It stays put all day and dosent have glitter or shimmer to it! It's got a glowing affect to it!

Revlon is my favorite cosmetic company. Coral is my favorite color blush. Sounded like a match made in heaven for me. I was head over heals to get home and try this out. I pulled out my favorite brush, swiped my checks, and gasp! Nothing happened. No color. Nothing. I thought maybe I was just applying it too softly so I rubbed generously and swatched on my wrist... Absolutely invisible. I work at a tanning salon so at my palest I'm in the beige/tan range. I don't think I'll ever have a fair enough complexion to wear this blush- which is ironic because coral looks awesome on tan skin. Women of color beware this blush is simply invisible.

this subtle coral shade gives off a really natural glow, not too overpowering & the colour is quite buildable without looking too unnatural. it comes with a tiny brush that isn't of much use, overall great for everyday makeup

This is one of the new matte powder blushes that sells for a whopping $9.99. Is it worth it, NO. I got it for half price minus a coupon, bonus bucks etc. It cost me zero. I'd buy it on sale only.

First let me explain why I said I would rebuy this, the color is very natural on me and goes well with my skin tone. I can't over do it and get a clown face. It is matte. So for me it is a great daytime color. If you look at the color in the pan it screams high pigmented bright coral. On my light/med, olive skin it shows up a light, pinky peach. Anyone with skin darker than mine should not even try these new colors. I originally bought Oh Baby, a baby pink (yeah wishful thinking), it looked like translucent face powder, in other words, invisible.

The texture is on the hard side.

I'm not sure what Revlon was thinking, not everyone has ivory skin. The price is ridiculous, I have Jordana blushes that beat the pants off of this.

I read that a coral blush can make an older woman look younger. I always thought coral looked awful on my lips - so it was a gamble. I have to agree, this color does look much more natural on the aples of my cheeks than any other shade.

So I will encorporate this color into my regimin depending on what I am wearing and will also use other shades in this line. I bought 5 and so far, and have tried this and "Oh-Baby! Pink". The Coral one has a little more color and I like it better. It is sheer, has no glitter or shine and is a fine matt powder.

The color of this product is much less saturated than this line was a few years ago. While I very much like the sheer matt look, I have never used anything so sheer. Even if I apply extra - I am in No Danger of looking over-done.

The first day I wore it to work I actually got compliments on my make up!! While I see others are upset that it is not strong enough, it is strong enough to give just a hint of color and isn't that how we want to look? It's hard to get over how something so faint can make such a difference. It allows everything else to stand out and I don't have an obvious blush patch on my face. I do however go heavier on my contour and this combination actually allows me to define my round face better!

I highly recommend this color and this line particularly for younger girls just learning to use make up and who honestly don't need it - but also for Pale and Older women who have no business overdoing it. This color is perfect for daytime wear. I believe it is not enough for evening wear.

The packaging is great, the brush is cheap but usable since with a product this sheer you don;t have to worry about streaking, and their is a tiny mirror in it.

I love this blush so much. In the past year, I became a little obsessed with coral everything. I found a cream blush by Flower Beauty (sold at walmart) in the shade Peach Blossom, which is a very pale peachy/ coral shade. I loved the way it looked on my skin but the formula isn't that great and would fade off pretty quickly. So I began a search for a powder blush of the same shade. After a year of buying several coral blushes Revlon released this blush and of course I bought it, not really expecting it to be a match but it was! It is definitely geared toward fair skinned people so I wouldn't advise it for medium-deep skin tones; it will probably come off very chalky looking. I have pale olive toned skin so the warm tone looks better on me than a pale pink.
