I finally got around to trying this blush and I have to say that I love it. Mine looks as though it has a much higher ratio of highlighter to blush in the pan--I thought I'd look fake-glowy--but on my cheeks it's a lovely slightly brownish mauve/plum that's very natural, yet gives a lovely glow without it being obvious--I just look like I'm glowing from within. (It's a great fall/winter shade, but would be appropriate year-round.) I find it quite pigmented, so a light hand is necessary for my NC 20-ish complexion. To my surprise, there wasn't much powder kickup in the pan, and the texture is almost creamy. It applies and blends easily and wore well for 6+ hours on a humid, sweaty day. I noticed no scent. The plastic packaging is cheesy (although you can get any kind of blush brush in there) and the powder is rather fragile, so points off for that. It's also crazy expensive, but given the quality, shade, wear time, and appearance on my skin, I'm not sorry I put out the cash. I would repurchase.
