"This product has really blown me away in a way that I did not expect. The product is so pigmented and it blends very easily. I've seen people complain about the size of the product, but I do not anticipate that I will likely ever run out of this product. I put the smallest amount that I can possibly squeeze out onto the tip of my index finger, pat it between my two index fingers, and then pat it onto both of my cheeks and sheer it out. The color is buildable and lasts all day on my skin. The only con that I can think of for this product is that it is dangerously easy to go overboard due to how pigmented they are, but you will learn quickly how much product is appropriate." - glossier user

A limited-edition, oversized Orgasm Blush to flatter any skin tone.
"I love the color and youthful glow that Chubby Stick Cheek Color gives my face. It blends easily and has the right amount of pigment so it looks natural rather than clown-like. My first purchase was Robust Rhubarb, which unfortunately is a true pink, and I don't wear pink. I liked the formula enough to try again, this time in Amp'd Up Apple and it's perfect! It's in the coral family, not too dark for my fair skin, and pretty much matches most of my lipsticks. I put two small streaks on each cheek and smooth in a circular motion, outward and upward, with my fingers. It doesn't last all day, but I've used cream blush in many brands for years and none of them do. I'll keep buying this product as long as it's available! " - clinique.com.my user

"I bought this blush months ago in aglow and liked it then but I kinda forgot about it because I became obsessed with the fresh bloom blushes. I recently wanted to try something new and ordered this in Iced Lotus, let me tell you I love it. The color is gorgeous and it stays so true all day long. It goes on so soft almost a velvety texture, this blush is just a beautiful product. It blends like a dream, it is oil free so no worries about breakouts also.I have also ordered precious posy, smoldering plum and cupid. I know but I am a makeup addict and this blush is a true gem from clinique. " - clinique.com user
"I was completely unfamiliar with theBalm products before receiving this sample and I am impresses to say the least! I am in love with the coral/blush with just a hint of shimmer. Though I have tried it as a blusher, I am a much bigger fan of using it on my eyelids as a base to a smokey eye or an all over lid color for daytime. The texture is so silky, it is a dream to put on! The pigmentation isn't great on it's own, but with a proper dab of primer, you have long lasting, fantastic color all day long!" - Birchbox user
Fake a perfect flush with urban decay afterglow 8-hour powder blush. Get all-day streak-free radiance.
"This is a very pigmented yet sheer and matte deep berry shade. I have light skin w yellow undertones and pink splotchy cheeks. I've been using Tarte cheek stain in Flush (used to be blushing bride) since it came out. I like that I found a powder blush that looks as great and of course, is a powder. It covers my splotchy pink cheeks and evens it out. Blends nicely with my powder foundation and a highlighter. I only need the smallest amount with a light hand and a fan brush. I love it! Ladies with dark hair, blue eyes and light skin try this. It's a beautiful color. The pictures don't do it justice. Also this shade has absolutely no glitter or glow. It's matte and sheer (but buildable) and perfect! " - Sephora user
"I was dying to try this blush after seeing it featured in multiple YouTube videos. Everyone spoke so highly of it and as I was browsing a few weeks ago I came across it at my Ulta so I picked it up. I've been using it for about two weeks now and absolutely love it. I have sensitive skin and a relatively fair complexion so most blushes look way too bright/red for my liking. This one is perfect, it has just the right amount of shimmer (not glitter) and is an amazing peachy/pink tone. It blends into your skin so nicely and lasts throughout my day into the night. It's pretty pigmented as is but definitely buildable and can be used wet since it's baked if you're wanting a super intense look. " - ulta.com user
"I love multitasking products, so of course I loved this! I have Cabo Coral and Powder Pink. Cabo Coral is a warm, bright, flattering coral. Powder Pink is a soft, muted cool pink. Both are highly pigmented, smooth, creamy, blendable, and last all day if set with powder. Both look very natural and have a skin-like (not too matte, not shimmery, not glittery) finish. On my cheeks, I like to pat it on and blend it out with my fingers. It goes smoothly on top of my liquid foundation. Or, if I'm using powder foundation, I use this first, and then dust the powder on top. This lets the color peek through and look very natural. It works okay on my lips, as long as I exfoliate and moisturize my lips beforehand. I pretty much always have to use a lip balm underneath, or else this stuff will emphasize any dryness. My favorite way to use this is layered OVER a thick but non-sticky gloss. Unfortunately, any way I apply it, it's gone from my lips after a couple hours. Overall, I highly recommend this product if you're looking for a cream lip/cheek color. It's high quality, you can build it up or sheer it out as much as you want, and you get a lot more product (by the oz.) than with other brands' lip/cheek tints. Plus, I've had these for several months, and they show no sign of drying out yet." - sephora user
"I bought this in Nude Pop because I've been looking for a good true nude blush. (I had gotten Tarte's Exposed for that reason, but it's still too pink to be entirely neutral.) So, I'm going to go over this blush point by point, since I have a lot to say!Color: the color is lovely, kind of a warm nude. It's not pink or orange, and not anywhere in between. It's like a honey color (with the smallest smidgen of peachy warmth) that is super flattering on warm skin tones, but I imagine cooler tones could wear it very well too since it's nude-ish. It's a fairly light color (not un-pigmented, just light) so if you're medium to dark in skin tone this may be too subtle for you. But if you're fair to light in skin tone and are afraid of being too heavy handed, this is pretty foolproof!Texture: very creamy and blendable. This shade is, I'm told, one of the more "shimmery" shades in the line, but there's no visible sparkle once applied. Just a natural subtle glow. It's not patchy or dry at all, even on my flaky problem skin.Packaging: so cute! The flower embossment is very sweet looking, and the plastic is fairly heavy duty without being too bulky. I'm not at all nervous about it breaking.Price/size: at $21 it's a bit cheaper than a lot of other blushes sold at Sephora, but it is also a fairly small amount of product received. For example, Tarte Amazonian Clay blush is $26 for .2 oz ($130 an ounce), while the Cheek Pops are $21 for .12 oz ($175 an ounce). I still think it's worth the price per ounce, but it is worth noting that I was surprised by how small it was when it arrived.Wear time: this is actually one of the more long-lasting blushes I have. I'll put it on at around 8:30 usually and when I head back to my dorm at 5, it's still visible. I was very surprised, because out of all the reviews I've read/watched (which is many), none of them emphasized that it was fairly long wearing. I wasn't expecting it to be, since a lot of non-matte blushes are a lot less long-wearing than their matte counterparts.Whew! My reviews always end up being small essays, it seems. Sorry about that! I just like to leave my full opinion on a product. I know I like it when other people do to. « less" - Sephora user
The Wanderlust Primer Infused Blush from Buxom is a silky, primer-infused powder blush that locks in luminous, true color.
"Purchase, don't hesitate. Natural ingredients! 2-in-1 which is fabulous, need a quick color just swipe and dab on your lips- then apply rest to the apples of your cheeks and swipe outward. gives a youthful sheer flush tone to your complexion (not streak--y like others) all shades are beautiful (charming - pers. fav.) SMELLS divine, not many lip2cheek balms do - note that, you dont want something under your nose that has a foul smell!!! This smells great, its packaging is glass and the cap is a light metal, I find product with "weight" to be easier to dig out when its in a full make-up bag and difficult to damage/destroy, because... well, come-on... were always dropping them... Its a light weight formula with good pigment, so you wont have to apply too much. sheer - satin true color henc, buildable. and small enough to slip in your pocket. large enough to not forget about it.

Estée lauder pure color envy sculpting blush for enhanced definition and a healthy-looking glow. Brush included.
"Disclaimer: If the swatch above shows multi-colors for the Deep Dark, IGNORE this. THAT is the swatch for the BM Total Invisible Highlighter in Deep Dark, it is actually a solid color. You can view it in store or on the BM website if it hasn't been fixed.Now, I have to say I really do like this subtle illuminating bronzer more than my matte bronzers. It's perfect for summer as it's not heavy and can be applied over tinted moisturizer or bare skin without looking heavy. As for the shade name Deep Dark, eh, not so crazy about. This has more to do with the makeup industry phrasing as a WHOLE which could use some work and this brand is really no different. "Deep" and "Dark" have very different meanings to women or men of color than those in the makeup world. Deep Dark is usually referred to those with deeper, darker, BROWN skintones, for example Mac Nw58 is the deepest shade in their Studio fix powder line. That shade is what most women of color, as myself, would refer to as Deep or Dark. However, I am more between nc45-nc50 and on the yellow side so this works pretty good.It's a brownish-bronze without too much red, and it just adds this really pretty natural luminosity. I swatched it in store, and just really liked it. It is very subtle and unless you're fair you couldn't use it as a contour IF you contour with a bronzer. it is a tad darker than my skin, it adds this bronzey illuminating sheen with zero glitter. It is definitely noticeable with versus without on me but looks very natural. If you are fair skinned you'll get more of a dramatic/intense look and it's sheer enough to pull off. I do think it's buildable without looking heavy or cakey or adding too much texture. The texture is super fine, not at all powdery, so it doesn't "dust up" when I run my brush across it. Overall, my favorite bronzer thus far, and the mirror is a really nice size, travel friendly. « less" - Macy's user
Laura geller's famous baked blush creates a gorgeous flush, no matter the season! With stunning swirls of liquid pigments that are baked for 24 hours on terracotta tiles, blush-n-brighten is hand-finished in italy into a silky dome of powder.
"This blush is amazing! I love the sleek black packaging with the small window that allows you to see the actual product. The blush is a vibrant mauve with a slight shimmer and no chunky glitter. The texture of the blush is smooth and almost creamy and can be applied with a brush or your finger. If you use your finger, you will notice just how bouncy the product actually is. The product blends effortlessly onto the skin whether you use a brush or your finger. The product has great pigmentation so a little bit goes a long way because it is buildable. The shimmer in the blush gives your skin a beautiful and natural glow. " - Sephora user
"Was recommended this foundation by a Credo rep and fell in love! Super easy to apply with my fingers or a damp beauty blender... applying some facial oil beforehand also takes this foundation to the next level for a nice dewy natural look! Lasts all day and easy to remover with cleansers/spin brush.I have pretty smooth, clear skin so its perfect for those who want light coverage that is also buildable like me. Looks very natural like you're almost not wearing makeup but still a flawless look. :) " - credobeauty.com user
"Some of these colors look very bright in the case. Very bright. I mean, check out that Pale Pink! But don't be scared -- it's so bright because there's so much quality pigment in each one of these blush colors. You don't need much on your brush. Just a touch on your apples and you're ready to go. The consistency of the powder is so easy to work with - blending out the edges is not an issue. The results are sheer, natural and healthy. I have a couple of the bright pop-color ones and also the neutral Desert Rose -- a great base layer blush for my warm skin tone. " - bobbibrowncosmetics.com user
"I'm a blush addict, honestly. I have tried so many blushes and I think this blush trio is such a fantastic value for your money (I have the shade peachy love). The blushes are pigmented, creamy, easy to blend, and super long lasting! The great thing about these though is that they're pigmented while also being a bit firmly pressed, so you're not going to easily over-do the blush, but you can build up that colour intensity if you so desire. Another great thing about it is that the colours are definitely very different but they compliment each other so so well -- so you're able to mix and match or wear each shade by itself. The shade Miami (the orangey shade on the right) does have a bit of glitter in it, but it really doesn't translate to the face if you tap off your brush a little before going in. « less" - Sephora user
An ultrablendable blush with a natural look and finish made specifically for HD technology.
"I think there are enough comments on how great the texture, pigmentation, etc are so I'll just give my take on particular colors I owe in hope to help anyone with similar complexion. For reference, I am fair and match to chanel's BR12 (winter) or BR22 (summer).I owe 'rose initiale' which is a beautiful peachy pink (more rosy), it is the perfect pink shade when swatched on my hand but on my face it translates too warm, and makes me look too red (even more when blended too much). I thought that 'espiegle' would also be warm on me but is actually a bright peach color which looks very flattering against my skin, I love this one. I also owe stardust and it's a very pale shimmery pink, it actually shows up on my skin and I can use it as a blush (but might just work as an highlighter for darker skin tones). Stardust have chunky glitters on the pan but on the face it just adds lots of light, on the other hand 'rose initiale' and 'espiegle' have a beautiful healthy looking sheen to it.Overall, I love chanel JC blushes and highly recommend them. When you find the right color it will definitely become your everyday favorite one! Less" - Nordstrom user
FLOWER Beauty Blush Bomb Color Drops for Cheeks in Cinnamon gives your cheeks a healthy glow!
"Genuinely amazing. Yes, I admit, I jumped on the bandwagon after reading so many people saying how great this product was. I've never used cream products before because I just wasn't sure that they would last throughout the day, however, I wanted to see how they would work on my skin.I have combination skin which is pretty oily in the summer and has quite a few old acne scarring marks. I love hourglass powders - genuinely beautiful and enable me to use a more matte base underneath and then bring back the 'glow' with a light dusting of an ambient powder.I've loved using this Hourglass trio also. I have fair skin and so the colours suit me well (I understand people's comments on more shades being required). The texture is beautiful and the creams are highly pigmented. I use a damp beauty blender to gently press and bounce the products onto my skin. I've found the creams last well all day although I do powder lightly over the top of them so this may help. The creams don't settle into the texture on my skin at all - they seem to glide over and give the illusion of much smoother skin.I've used this most days since I bought it a month ago and although the pans may look small, you can barely tell I've used the product. I would highly recommend. The only small downside is that I quite like a brighter/stronger blush colour and whilst this blush is beautiful sometimes I do want to pop an extra bit of colour on top.

"If you are oily and you use acne products that make you flaky or peel, you have primer issues. These are my issues, and this primer is a must have for me, so get this primer to at least try it out if you have those same problems. The primer issue is that primer can make your makeup come off faster even though it says it does the opposite, if you have enough oil. And primer can make your oil free foundation look pasty gross thick and cheap if it is chalky or pasty enough to absorb too much of the liquid of the foundation while you apply it or even afterwards. And you want a dry primer if you are oily but you want a smooth primer if you are acne prone and use drying products to control it or if you have acne scarring and texture issues from the acne. However you don't want a pore clogger, so it can't be a primer that says its oil free and has a dry feel but is packed with waxes to achieve the smoothness factor. Issues. Here is where Becca's Ever-matte steps up to the plate. At first try it seems to be no good. It dries quickly, it has a slightly pasty finish, it forms an oil absorbing film and you can't really put makeup over it with any other method than sponging or stippling (think a patting motion and never a swirling or side to side movement-it will cake up.) If you sponge it on top of foundation or powder or both it could remove the makeup unless you are a blotting Ninja or if your foundation doesn't cover your skin tone. So it sounds mediocre so far. But it's brilliant.MIX THIS with a smooth primer, cc cream, bb cream, whatever floats your boat as long as it's got a creamy or smooth texture, and EUREKA BABY. I mix it with Tarte 12 hour primer- BOOM looks like natural skin, stays matte all day. Mix it with Smashbox Photo Finish BOOM a primer that actually absorbs oil and feels like silk, used sparingly under foundation. Mix it with Paula's Choice oil absorber, (yes, another boom) a super thin layer of "powder" that lasts all day but doesn't feel heavy like the Becca primer and doesn't get overwhelmed by the oil like Paula's, and I look bare faced with no pores over my shiny SPF 50 sunblock. Beach ready. It transforms other products that aren't packing enough punch for acne prone people into real useable products. If acne isn't a concern but scarring is, you can mix it with a waxy pigmented product to get a matte paste that will fill in not just pores but box-type scaring. Less" - Sephora user
"This blush formula has a soft and silky texture like the Satin Matte Foundation. I use very few grains at a time. I found that only opening the cover for the holes a small amount cuts down on waste as it can come out pretty fast.“Honey Rose” shows up bright coral/peach and warm on my skin (Warm 2-3)“Pink” is a medium warmish pink in the jar and shows up very neutral on my skin tone; looks like a light/medium exercise flush.“Carnation” is the most neutral of the three and looks like a muted brownish peach on me.In the jars: Pink makes Honey Rose look more orange, Carnation makes Pink look cooler and more blue based, and Honey Rose makes Carnation look like a neutral brownish peach.“Soft Plum” was my first blush purchase, thinking I would ignore the write up on it and just go for the color I desired, but alas, it turned out to be way to deep for my skin tone and made my freckles look muddy. It had too much red in it for me. It was a lovely color although I had to return it.The blushes are super pigmented so I have to do it in very light layers. I found that using the Alima Pure Blush Brush has improved the application a lot. At first I used a stippling brush that deposited too much product onto my skin at one time and looked blotchy. The formula and colors of these blushes are excellent and really compliment the foundation shades and there is quite a bit in the container for the price. No break outs either.

"I bought this mineral blush in shade : pink me up . I have mid light to medium skin and green eyes .I wear Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue in : Shade " 05 Natural ". ( for reference ) . I love Pink me up . It looks beautiful on my skin . It is more on the matte side of blush . It does not have heavy shimmer or sparkle so if you are looking for a shimmery finish to your blush this is not it . It is a powder but the finish almost feels " creamy " . I take my small domed highlighter brush swirl , tap off excess and blend over my cheekbones and under my cheekbones in a upside down " C'" motion . It sculps my cheeks beautifully and although more on the matte side once you apply it it is a beautiful radiant lit- from within finish . As we get older adding light to the high points of the face is the best thing we can do to look younger , aside from wearing sunscreen every day and taking care of our skin. This blush is amazing not only because of the Matte yet Radiant finish but also because it is buildable .You can control the coverage if you simply want a " soft flush " or like me if you truly want a sculpted cheekbone with a radiant finish " Do not let that scare you . unlike most blushes you can really build this one up without looking like a clown it never looks like that . it is a dream to work with this blush. The shade ranges in this blush line are beautiful from pinks, to peaches to merlots and beigies there is a shade for everyone . I love pink blushes for my look and pink me up is a beautiful nude pink with a pearl finish. One more thing about the finish .

A curated, colorful collection of six lustrous blushes to let cheeks glow with light.
"Two faced has made it a very good quality blush that is about $30. You can buy this blush from Sephora from online or at the store. It has about 4 selections of different skin tones you can choose from. Since all of the shades can show up on all different skin colors. Although there is 3 shades, they all blend together nicely. It has a little bit of shimmer and glow to it and 3 shades in one. Although there is one flaw, there isn’t a lot of pigment to it when you first get it. From my experience I think this is very good quality blush and applies on easy. The blush is very natural looking and not dry looking, it is very smooth and not too glittery. A flaw though is that I think it is to pricey but at the same time I think it is worth it. When you apply it, it makes your cheeks shimmer and glow a little bit and really makes the pink pigment pop out. After a week or two the pigment should be more worn down and applies to your face easier. Another thing I like about this blush is that is lasts a really long time and it stays on after a long day. I would recommend this kind of blush because it complements my face with the different shades, so if you want a blush that complements your face this is the one for you. There is 3 more other shades to collect. They're all very great quality. The container is very cute and shaped into a heart. The blush is very good quality and gives your face a kind of peachy glow. I would totally recommend this blush to anyone looking for a quality blush. It is very smooth and has a very smooth touch to it and when you apply it. Overall I think this product is very good and if you like quality blush this is the one for you. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"Being a huge fan of Armani cosmetics I had to try these blushes, but I was skeptical because I adore the Armani Sheer Blush line and didn't know if these would be as good. Good news...they are wonderful! I have shades #200 and #503 and am smitten with them both. Shade #200 is a rich Terracotta with fine microshimmer. It's highly pigmented so I have to use a light hand, but it gives my face a warm healthy glow and the shimmer melds with the skin so it's not "glittery" look like a "disco ball". #503 is a gorgeous medium pink with shimmer and is just as amazing! It looks a lot like Sheer Blush #10 in the pan, but is darker and more neutral than #10. It's perfectly pigmented for my fair skin and gives me a glowy pink flush that's so pretty. Both shades I have are typical Armani luxury...finely milled, silky, blendable, and long lasting. These new Cheek Fabric blushes fit right in with the "Armani Glow" theme and I can't wait to purchase the remaining shades! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-6272140780380270836-full" data-show="-6272140780380270836-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - saksfifthavenue.com user
"I have used Clinique blush for many years and I love this product. Long lasting and goes on smooth and soft without too much pigment. This blush will not give you a clown look. They offer a wide range of pretty colors and the blush lasts a long time. I have not had any issues with the compact itself, my blushes in the past with other brands have broken up after extended use, but never had that issue with clinique blush. I do recommend this line of blush. I think it is somewhat pricey, but i find it is worth the splurge. I have not experienced any skin irritation or clogging of pores using this product. It is just wondeful and that is why I am giving it a 5 star review. Actually, I really love most all of the products from the Clinique line that I have tried in the past, both cosmetics and skin care products.

I ordered the color 04 Perfect Peach, which is the same color Amanda Seyfried is wearing in the promotion of the spring collection. I am so happy I took a chance on this blush, despite the price. It will last a long time, and honestly, I'd rather have quality than quantity. The blush is so easy to apply (I use my fingers) and blends out with very little effort.

"I love a highly pigmented blush!! I never realized that until I tried a duo by Mally that has a cream blush and a coordinating setting powder. I used it over foundation and even with a light hand, it made me look like a clown. Then I decided to apply it first, then the foundation and it made a huge difference. It looks more natural and blended to me. The one thing I wish both It and Mally would do in these blushes is have a "true red" color. I have a gel blush by philosophy and a BE blush in Tulip. They are both the true red color I like, not blueish red, orange, brown, brick, just red!! The gel is too easily covered by foundation and the BE just doesn't stay on my extremely oily skin for long. I like a red that makes me look like I have been in the sun or just come in from the cold. I think it looks most natural on me. Anyways, give this (or any blush for that matter) a try under your foundation and see if it helps. :) Less" - QVC user
