Hot Mama by theBalm

"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

Mineral Blush by BECCA

"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

Luminous Blush by BECCA

A curated, colorful collection of six lustrous blushes to let cheeks glow with light.

Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush by Too Faced

"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

Liquid Blush by NARS

A high-pigmented, liquid blush that brings a flush of natural-looking color to all skintones.

Artist Face Color Highlight, Sculpt & Blush Powder by Make Up For Ever

"I received H104, B302, and S116 for free from Makeup Forever in my Influnenster VoxBox for testing. I tried out those 3 and really loved them. So I purchased 3 more shades, H102, B206, and S300 with my own money. I love this new customizable palette!! I love beauty/makeup products in general, but I rarely purchase any face palette with my own money. Most of the time, only a couple shades fit my skin tone/need. So in my opinion, those types of the palette are not worth my money. I really like how this one is completely customizable! I was impressed at the wide shade selection. Also, I love how it has 3 different sizes of empty palettes! Formula/Blendability: These powders are very finely milled. They go on very buttery and smooth. And it blends out beautifully. H102 is the only shade that wasn't too soft. Since it's highly shimmery shade, it feels a bit chunky when you try to apply this one with your finger. You have to use a brush when you are applying this shade. Pigmentation: Pigmentation is definitely there!! One thing to remember is that these powders are tightly packed!!! So when you try to swatch these shades with your fingers, it may not give you full pigmentation. But don't be disappointed or apply too heavily with a brush. If you apply with a brush, this will give you the full pigmentation. If you have a pale - light skin tone, H 104 will not be bright enough for you to use as a highlighter. It's too close to my skin tone; I just use this one to set my eyelids after a primer. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

FaceStudio Master Glaze Glisten Blush Stick by Maybelline

"I am so, so impressed with this product.It's a versatile two-in-one product. You can skip highlighter. It gives the cheekbones a glow without being shimmery or sparkly. It seems to magically catch the light just right. It really seems to sculpt the cheekbones, making my face look a little more angular, the way a highlighter does.I have the pink one. It's pigmented without looking overdone. In fact, it looks natural. It's hard to overdo it, yet the effect is immediate. I think it would be better for fair skin as it might not show up as well on very dark skin tones.It's so easy to apply, I do it in the car on rushed mornings, and it always looks incredible. I just swipe it along my cheekbones and upper cheeks and dot (not rub) with my fingers to blend. Seamless. It lasts all day and looks the same at night as in the morning.This is high end quality at drugstore price. Less" - ulta.com user

Duo Glow by Natasha Denona

"This product is so so special. I’ll start off by saying I got it on sale after side eyeing it for quite some time (just based on the price. I will also say I don’t use this on its own but as a mid point from my blush to my highlight, blending the tiniest it into my blush. Ill put my highlight on and then I’ll use a blush that’s a bit more on the satin finish side (Laura Mercier windflush is my fav at moment) then with either a fluffy brush or highlight brush (depending on just how much glow I want) I will blend this over top with a light hand. After using my blending and setting spray it’s like I’m able to copy that supermodel glow I always envy. I will say though I don’t like it as just a high light given how much pink and gold it is (on my skin tone). And if I’m being honest I would have eventually caved and paid full price and I would still think it’s five stars. Less" - Sephora user

Dandelion Box O' Powder Blush by Benefit

Shimmer Blush by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

"I love the shimmer blush. They go on so smooth, blend very well and feel light on the skin. I have the Bahama Brown and Plum Wine. They are perfect colors for me. You can use them as light as you want or you can intensify the color by layering and blending. The real genius is these colors are flattering on many different complexions and snap right into the palettes." - bobbibrowncosmetics.com user

Mineral Blush by Lily Lolo

"Ich habe mittlerweile 3 Blushes von Lily Lolo und ich liebe sie alle. Es lässt sich sehr leicht verblenden und ist sehr ergiebig. Flushed ist schön schimmernd und verleiht dem Gesicht wirklich eine sehr gesunde Farbe. Cherry Blossom schimmert ebenfalls wunderschön und hat orangene Pigmente, mal was anderes halt :) Doll Face ist ultra schimmernd und ich finde das persönlich einfach nur toll. Klare Empfehlung von mir. " - douglas.de user

Balm Desert Blush/Bronzer by theBalm

"I have pale skin, and usually look a bit ghostly (and ghastly!) if I don't put a touch of color on my cheeks, but I don't want it to look like I'm back in the 1970's or 1980's with a big swath of "BLUSH". This is a soft pink that has great color payoff and gives the perfect flushed look! I want to look BETTER than "natural", yet still natural... this does that! I can't wear creme blushes due to oily skin, and this gives me the same sheer affect without the streaking and grease. I love this blush! MUCH better than the Benefit Dandelion. (That has a very white underlying hue to it, and no color staying power, even on my pale, oily skin.) But this is fantastic! It's great if you're doing a smoky eye or a bright lip- it's enough color to make you look alive, but not so much that it competes for attention. I seriously love this, especially now that I'm not 20 anymore. theBalm downBoy is a wonder product! « less" - Beauty.com user

Blushing Hearts Triple Baked Blusher by Revolution Beauty

"I love this bronzer; it's tough to find a bronzer that's not too orange on my lighter skin, this product does not disappoint - it lasts on my face all day - which is more than I can say for some high-end brands that I have in my collection!I am going to need to order a couple more for backup !!Also, i would like to note that the shipping to Australia is great and it arrives reasonably fast!

Blush by sleek

"I first got this in rose gold, which is a rose pink colour with a gold sheen. It's 8grams, comes in sleek packaging and with a small mirror. I've gotten lots of colours for friends and family such as flamingo (bright pigmented pink), Life’s a Peach (matte peach), Antique (plummy brown), Pixie Pink (bubblegum pink with no shimmer- pigmented), Pao Tan (peach with slight orange undertones), Scandalous (pigmented red blush and a dupe for Nars Exihbit A), coral (browned orange matte), Sahara (matte brown with orange undertones), and Pomegranate (pigmented berry with a pink iridescent). They are smaller than I expected, they are 6.5 cm long, but 8grams is a lot for a blusher. Most are pigmented with pomegranate, flamingo, and pixie pink, but scandalous being the most. Pao tan and antique being more sheer, life a peach is a buildable coverage. These can work with all skin colours, rose gold looks great on fair-medium, scandalous on medium-dark, pomegranate fair-medium (lovely on olive skin tones imo), Sahara is a great nude blush for medium skin, flamingo can work on all but if fairer use a light amount, life a peach is good for fair-medium, pink is good for fair skin, coral is a good nude for medium and can work on deep skin tones, and Santorini on medium-dark (perfect for deep skin tones). I wish they would stock more colours. Hope this was helpful X" - walgreens user

Cream Blush by NARS

"In most cases, I won't buy more than one color from each "line" of lip products. But, I had to make an exception for these. It's kind of ridiculous, but have 6 of these! Bridgette, Catherine, and Jane are some of the most unique, yet wearable colors I've seen. Geraldine and Annabella are easy colors to find anywhere, but I love this formula and wanted some bold classic colors. I also have Bette and I had an exceptionally hard time choosing between all the similar deep berry/red shades that are available. I used to have Juliette, but for some strange reason there is a TON of sparkle in that one so I ended up returning it. This is a really pricey lip product, but it's totally worth it. They are extremely buttery, creamy and pigmented. You only need one swipe, which is probably why the lipstick tube is so short. Don't keep going over your lips or else it may look thick and cakey. The packaging is so luxurious and I love the magnetic closure. It does not get dirty like the blushes do. These lipsticks are so moisturizing, yet stay on my lips forever. They never apply poorly and it's not a high maitenence product that requires a lot of exfoliating and lip balms prior to putting it on. This definitely my holy grail lipstick and I plan on buying more! Also, as someone else noted, some of these colors tend to be extremely similar to one another. You definitely don't need the whole range. « less" - Sephora user

Peach Pop Blush Palette by ULTA Beauty

"It takes me a long time to get through a blush and I finally found one I would buy again. I love the fact that the pigmentation shows up with barely using any product and there is a selection I can choose from or blend together, especially when my skin is lighter in winter and darker in summer. Love the peachy shades! only downside is that I wish it actually closed shut so loose powder doesn't spill " - ulta.com user

Confidence In Your Glow by IT Cosmetics

"This is such a gorgeous product with a great pay off if applied correctly. I immediately threw out the brush, which I did not care for at all. I have a Bobbi Brown blush brush which is soft and allows me to pick up a little bit of color from the pan (I mix the middle color with the bronzer) and just pat it lightly on my cheek and upward, with gentle pats and then a light swirl to finish. SO NATURAL looking and really gives you a very subtle glow... very subtle (or not depending on how you apply and what you want). Then I use the very lightest color to my brow bone. SO PRETTY. The key with this product is to go LIGHTLY when you apply.... you can always add to the color and this is very pigmented. Lasts all day.... I have the WARM (and I have medium to light olive skin), and bought another plus the natural on AD. That's how much I love this product! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Less" - QVC user

Fusion Soft Lights Baked Starblush by Smashbox

"I love Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights because they're so versatile. I recently received a new one as part of TSV collection. I urge you to consider these when you're looking for something to update your look, as they're all so versatile. These excellent powders can be used on eyes, as a blush, and can be used as separate shades or blended together. They look great as blushes and bronzers, can be used as highlighters, too, and when used as eye shadow, they don't crease. They're long lasting on both eyes and cheeks, and full faced, as full face color. They're easy to transport, too. Consider them mini-palettes, because they're just as good as having some of the bigger palettes. When using for my eyes, I sometimes wet a small area, and use as liner, as shadow, for added depth. I've been very happy with all the Fusion Soft Lights I've used since they're excellent quality. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-6845836860267785405-full" data-show="-6845836860267785405-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Sephora user

True Match Le Blush Compact by L'Oreal

"I bought this without the knowledge that it had a mirror and brush but to my surprise it worked really well - (I've always used soft blush brushes). The blush isn't too heavy and is true to colour, blends exceptionally well. I will buy again " - superdrug.com user

Orgasm and Orgasm Little Fetishes Set by NARS

"Great set to try out some of the best NARS products without committing to the full-size price tag! Each of the powders are the size of a single NARS eyeshadow, which is a decent size - it should last for a while depending how much you use them! I love both the bronzer and highlighter. I haven't tried the full-size products, so I don't know how they compare, but as stand-alone products they are very pigmented and blendable. The bronzer is the perfect golden tan shade that is not too pigmented, so it's easy to apply a veil of bronze on my face. I read on Temptalia that she felt the bronzer did not blend well, but I didn't find the one I had was like that. Also, the highlighter is amazing. It provides a blinding glow - no shimmer or glitter. It's a perfect golden champagne colour. Definitely recommend buying this if you were interested! « less" - Sephora user

Maracuja Blush & Glow Brightening Luminizer & Cheek Tint by Tarte

"Purchased in 'Moonlight'.What a smooth product! You need just the tiniest of tiny dabs to work with the luminizer. It is meant to be used as a HIGHLIGHTER, not as a blush (although there is a separate blush included)! This means it is applied to the very tops of your cheekbones, your browbones, your cupid's bow lip indent, your nose, to pull light towards it to look more prominent. Too much and you will look like a shiny shiny android!If it is thick/stiff or tacky in consistency, you have a bad tube and should exchange it for a new one at the place you purchased it.The blush is also a dream, and I will be purchasing a larger size of it when I run out of the cap-included bit. The blush blends very smoothly and naturally. I apply both products easily with my fingers. " - Sephora user

Glow Oil Lip + Cheek by Milk Makeup

"I found this product at the cash section and it was the last one, and I'm so glad I did! I'm obsessed with this! I wore it today through 33 degree celsius weather where I was sweating and it also stayed perfectly in place through walking in the rain. It was so sticky and humid and gross outside and I always wipe all of my makeup off by touching my face, but this didn't budge. It stayed on for a total of 13 hours! It is a stunning colour and it blends so easily and seamlessly. I personally like this blush better than any of my nudestix matte or bloom cream blushes. Highly HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!" - sephora user

Powders Blush Bronze Highlight Contour 13 Hot Flush by Sephora Collection

"So pigmented and long lasting, I bought the color sweet on you after I fell in love with it from a sample. I bought this on December 27th 2016, and have used it almost every single day since then and I still haven't hit pan, and today is Dec 21st, 2017 almost a full year later. I doubt If I'll ever actually hit pan. Some of the Sephora brand makeup is hit or miss but this blush, specifically "Sweet On You" is a home run. if you want a beautiful, coral toned blush that'll last a long time on the skin and in the pan I recommend this one! " - Sephora user
