Cactus Flower is a pinky coral red shade with obvious golden shimmer throughout. in the pan it looks a little intimidating, but this can be blended out from a near-to-nothing flush, to a beautiful radiant wash of colour. when you swatch this on your hand, the golden shimmers can look a little fat and awkward, but on the face, it doesn't translate that way. it all just looks very glowy.
i like to apply this with my fingers, and recently, i have just learned a trick, to apply this over foundation, before the foundation has completely set. that way you can blend Cactus Flower to entire evenness and also you can really build it up.
i have fair medium, combination to oily skin, and this has never made me look oily. especially if i powder my skin afterwards. but it is shimmery, so if you only wear matte blushes, maybe this won't be for you.
i have owned this for 5 months, use it daily, and i haven't even hit pan! because it's such a well-pigmented product, you use so little, so this is truly a great investment. Cactus Flower is definitely a top product for me. it adds such an incredible glow to my face and an instant vibrancy, especially when i don't look particularly vibrant to begin with!
would definitely repurchase.
