i have this in raspberry. it dries too fast to use as a blush, but it works pretty well as a lip stain. it basically does what it says, and looks nice, but isn't anything special.

Doesn't blend well at all...I always get clownish, defined circles no matter what. Highly recommend L'oreal's translucide gel instead (if you can find it!)

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinch your cheeks! I have been using it for 3 years and think this is the only blusher that will not stain your pillow or your hubby's clothes, and also the only giving this ultra-natural glow (on my fair skintone it looks exactly like a natural blushing, and everyone thinks I am of these healthy scandinavian beauties. i confess I am actually very pale) BUT I must say that metal tube is way too cheap for what it contains. I always press it too hard when it's new and end up with days of overflowing gel whenever I open it! Bear in mind this is a stain product, it will just give you that pink color, but doesn't have any sparkle or light diffusing ingredient. I use it ever day under my free powder, without foundation and one tube usually lasts me 5 to 6 months. Good for everyday, not for the evening, in my opinion.

I can not smile through the day without this product! It is the ONLY natural flush I've ever found (compared to Benefit Benetint, it wins hands-down). I've been using it for about 4 years now, and although I use it every single day...I'm only on my 4th tube. A little pinch really does do ya (making its counter price a real steal)! I personally use it as a swipe of "faux sun" across my nose and forehead...and it makes me look like I got just a touch of sun the day before. My ONLY complaint is that the tube gets air bubbles in it, so it occasionally "burps" out a little more product than I wanted (and I don't like wasting my favorite gel). Otherwise, this is my HG item! To reference coloring, I have red hair with fair skin (but very few freckles) and green eyes. The color works perfectly on my skin.

I like it cause it's little, although it tends to leak. The intense color doesn't bother me. I think it's romantic and I put it on my lips, too.

It's not my best buy this year, far from it ! It stains the fingers, is very hard to apply, doesn't last and makes me break out :( It's a pity because I thought it looked good for the first half an hour after I applied it ... It definitely doesn't look good on dry or powdered skin, IMO.

I've tried to use this blush many times but I can never seem to make it work. It either looks to dark or to streaky.

Oh how this didn't work for me! Turns out I'm not a big fan of cheek stains, but the packaging of this one makes me hate it more than others I've tried! It comes in a little metal tube with an opening smaller even then Stila shines & shimmers. It didn't allow for a very good application - my cheeks wound up with little burgundy streaks on them, & the stuff stained my fingers as I valiantly tried to blend it in. If you like stain products, I'd stick to Benetint or others!
