My first blush purchase. I wouldn't buy it again just because I should probably explore a little more before settling on one blush. That said, it's excellent. It looks so natural on me that even if I accidentally over-apply, it makes me look like I just had 3 drinks and ran for two miles in 80 degree weather. Needless to say, that's NOT the look I go for, but that's how natural it looks! Normally I apply just a little with my finger, one swipe under each cheekbone, and buff it out a bit. Highly pigmented, so over-applying is easy to do.

This is my go-to blush. It works beautifully with different looks and I think it flatters most skin tones. I am fair and it looks scary in the pan but once applied it is a gorgeous flush of pink on my cheeks. It should be usted with a very light hand because it is really pigmented and if you are not carefull might end up looking like a clown. The color is very buildable and has a slightly shimmery finish. The packaging is ok, it could be better but I can get along with it. I have had mine for the last 2 years, use it almost every day and still have half the product in the pan, so is worth the price.

I have fair to light skin with cool to neutral undertones. This color is my favorite blush color to date. Many people raved about Nars Orgasm but that looks muted and orangey on me, not like my particular natural coloring. However, Dollymix is the pink version of Orgasm for us cooler toned people. On me it is a flushed, healthy, flirty natural shade that is perfection with just a hint of shimmer for a subtle glow (I don't like high shimmer/shine or glitter and a lot of mattes can be flat).

This blush is very pigmented so apply with a light hand and build up or you risk the dreaded "clown look" :)

I hesitate to call anything a holy grail but I think this just may be my winter blush version. I will probably use something a touch warmer for summer though. I just purchased it so I can't tell you how it will look with a tan. I will update when I do and if I think it's good for year round.

As for the packaging, I am a minimalist and prefer it without the compact so I can customize. If I wasn't, I'd say the compact is average. It has kind of a dome shape so I think that takes up extra room that it doesn't need to but it's not very wide like most compacts so it's a spacesaver that way.

It's $17 for the .21oz/6g refill pan (my preference) and $22 with the compact, which I don't think is bad at all for a HE product.

This is my HG blush. Nothing even comes close to this amazingness. The pigmentation is awesome, the price is ok. The packaging is basic. I can justify the price because it lasts me about 6 months and that's wearing everyday. I have tried other blushes manly because of the price and the fact that the closest MAC is an hour away so I don't get there often but enough is enough! It's just not worth buying all this drugstore blush and it not even coming close. It's official I will always continue to buy Dollymix

Goes on the skin the exact same color as is in the pan. A little (and I mean even a dab) goes a long way. i don't use a brush for this because it deposits too much on my face, especially considering how pigmented it is. I like to use my finger and lightly sweep over it and dab it on my cheeks.

Apply sparingly with one very gentle sweep of the brush. Fantastic colour pay off. Beautiful dolly pink colour that is true to what you see in the pan! Looks great with eye makeup in blues or greens. I've had mine ages as you need very little.

works well on my yellow-to-tan skin colour. Got nothing to complain.

I love it. It has some subtle shimmer, but nothing too 'fake' or noticeable. It makes your face come alive and gives your cheeks a healthy glow :)

My sister uses this and I thought, "gosh, that looks like clown make up." Wrong again as usual. Just a sweep on the cheekbone is all one needs to look fresh and vibrant. A little goes a long way if you know what I mean.

Unlike many pink blushes, this does not turn orange on my face. The colour is lovely and shimmery. Perfect for the night. However, one must remember to use this with a very light hand, in order not to end up like a clown.
