Just bought this and it truly is a dupe for Tarte’s Exposed! BUT, for my mature skin the formula is MUCH better! Exposed to me is very dry and chalky, but that’s what clay based products are. Great for oily skins, but drier skins, not so much. The formula is very silky with a lovely satin finish that applies beautifully. This color #20 Satin Love, like Exposed, will look great on most all light to medium skin tones. Awesome find!

Bought Satin Love the first day I saw it in the drugstore, back in March/April. After using it for 4 months, I must admit this blush formula is not awesome on my dehydrated combination skin. Love the color (Tarte exposed dupe), the embossing and flat acrylic packaging but the product itself can apply patchy and doesn't last past 3h on my skin.

Also I noticed the acrylic on the hinge is wearing apart. I've only ever stored it flat in my blush drawer and yet it might break apart any time now. The packaging is flimsier than elf's for the same price

I love love love the color and the initial packaging. Just wish it held up better

I'd give this a 3.5 if I could, but realistically rounding down to balance out the chorus of raves

I bought this in the hopes that it would be like Tarte's exposed. It does look a lot like it when applied! It also surprised me because it lasted a very long time on my oily skin, I would say about 7 hours. It's very flattering on my olive skin and looks even better when I have applied self tanner. I'll definitely be stocking up in-case they discontinue this gem. I'll also have to check out the coral shade as well.

One of my favorite blushes out there: it's silky, the lasting power is good, and the packaging is nice too (Transparent, resistant and NOT bulky - Yes Hoola Benefit I'm looking at you!). The color is a dupe for Tarte Exposed like some girls mentioned before, but the cool thing is that you get it for a fraction of the price. I've been spending a LOT of money on HE products all my life and - don't get me wrong - I think some are worth the price but some products are just a rip off, and if you can get the same look for much less, why not? :)

I recently purchased this in the shade Satin Love, and it is really pretty. I am very fair, so this color is very bold on me, and I think that come autumn, it will be my go-to. It's a lovely neutral mauve with a little bit of a sheen to it that makes it look really pretty on the skin. I don't have a ton of texture on my cheeks, but it doesn't emphasize what's there by any means.The packaging is cute, and even though it has nothing to do with the performance of the product, but I really love the embossed design on the product. This is a great bargain for just about $3 at Ulta in the US, and I highly recommend it. Update: I also picked up the other color available at Ulta, Satin Coral, and it is very nice too. Not quite as nice as Satin Love, but still very pretty. It looks like a peachy color in the pan, but I'd say on the skin it is more of a soft coral. It has the same lovely finish and it also wears very well. I'd love if Essence expanded the color range on these blushes because they are fantastic, however I think even the two existing colors would look great on a variety of skin tones from very pale (like me) to medium-deep skin.

Amazing blush from the drugstore and I swear Satin Love is a dupe for Tarte's Exposed. This blush is cheap, silky, almost creamy, pigmented but not overly so that you can end up with clown cheeks, it blends beautifully and lasts a fair amount of time on my normal cheeks. I would 100% recommend, I love it and I wish there were more than 3 shades. Great find.

Latest blush purchase from Essence is the new Satin Touch Blush. Comes in 3 shades, Satin Coral, Satin Love, and Satin Bronze. Satin Love was the only one available at the time I purchased. It is a muted rosewood shade that is highly pigmented and applies smoothly, blends easily on the skin. There is no glitter or shimmer and yet it is not flat on the skin either. Satin is a good way to describe it. I am interested to see what Satin Coral looks like when it is in stock at the drugstore. For a few dollars you really can't beat the quality of these blushes. Packaging is clear, relatively sturdy acrylic/plastic and small enough to be convenient but large enough to just tap your blush brush on and get full coverage on the bristles. I apply with a light hand, just quick sweep across the cheeks and it is beautiful all day / night long. Despite the appearance with the raised dotted design the blush is very smooth and silky, not chalky, doesn't kick up excess powder, generally just very easy to use. I don't use many products from Essence but their blushes are great and I'd recommend giving them a try.

I have been a fan of Essence's blush since I found it - affordable, soft, and blendable. I have quite a few of their now discontinued Silky Touch line and thought I might not need any of their Satin Touch.

After reading a review here that said Satin Love was a dupe for Tarte Exposed, I had to do some more research. I've been lemming a dupe for Tarte Exposed/Mac Blushbaby etc. for months, but they aren't in my budget. I found a very convincing swatch comparison online that Google translate helped me with and it was off to the drugstore!

I now own Satin Love, and in true Essence fashion, this is soft, silky, and blendable. It has good pigmentation but can easily be applied lightly or built up. It does look very soft and natural when applied gently.

I would say the color is definitely warm-toned, a slightly muted brownish rose with underlying apricot tones. The satin finish is gorgeous, no glitters or sparkles, just smooooth glowy, soft sheen.

I would love to see a cool toned version of this and would buy it in a heartbeat.

This is incredibly easy to wear and a great choice for anyone who likes nude toned blushes that just give a hint of color (avoiding the dead look) without making a bold blush statement.

At this price and this quality this is easily the winner in drugstore. I have satin coral and that is the most universal color out there that the pigmentation is light yet noticeable, perfect for beginners (me). The color is definitely the right amount of coral - not too pink and not too orange. It is not at all cold but has that nice, gentle warmth in it. The fair skin ladies will never go wrong with this color but due to the pigmentation and the light coloring it would not be suitable for those of darker skin tones, unfortunately. The package is my fav, it is sturdy, nothing fancy, practical. In terms of staying powder i noticed the color fades after 4 hours of wear, but still some left after that. I use a large powder blush and dab into it, evenly apply it on my face with one or two swipes and that'd be my everyday blush done. It is satiny, yes, but does not contain any shimmer or glitter noticible even in the pan. But it IS satiny. Witchcraft!

Edit: I did a swatch and found out that Satin Coral is VERY VERY VERY similar to MAC warm soul. They are both satiny (Satin Coral has no visible shimmer and Warm Soul contains some gold pearls) and look identical under sunlight and even with flash. Check this one out if you're thinking of getting warm soul!

2nd edit: I am not sure how long I've used it for but my pan broke one day, just like that! The screw? where the upper part attaches to the blush itself just became loose and the next time I used it, it detached from the lower part and there was no way to fix it. Opening it gently did not help. I've never dropped it on the floor or anything. The other blush I bought from essence (Matte blush Berry me up) with the same packaging also broke the next day (i bought them on the same day). It was so heart breaking because I do love these blushes, so I started searching for new containers for them. I found MAC's pans work okay, but I would need to stick them together using tape but still they became loose after some time (the size of the essence's blush does not fit the MAC's palette so I could only stick it to the empty pan). The blush itself also started cracking (as I dug it out of the original container) so I at last purchased other MAC refill blushes that are similar to this color instead... please be aware of the longevity of the packaging because this is probably due to the repeated open and close of the container for months. You might also find containers on Amazon suitable but I have not yet tried
