Thanks to these wonderful product reviews, I could purchase with confidence since I was a little skeptical that this product adjusted to 'a shade just for you'; however, I was pleasantly surprised to see this bright pink powder transform into the subtle rouge I was searching for. I definitely recommend this product as a staple in every woman's makeup bag!
My new favorite!
This blush is incredible. I still think that the idea of a blush that changes to match your perfect shade is hooey, but somehow this neon pink blush doesn't look neon pink on me. I really like it. I took it into work and let a buddy try it on, and it looked great on her too. This is my new go-to blush!
too clownish looking
I am not a fan of this blush at all. I bought this based on other people's reviews and I applied a very small amount of blush but it still made me look like a clown. For me, the color did not change much from the original hot pink color. It looked even worse with the lighting at work and I had to wipe it off 3x in the bathroom for me to look semi-normal again.
Too hot pink
I think this blush only evens out a little for a custom color. Like other people, a little goes a LONG way unless you want to look like a clown. I found that the hot pink color really stays hot pink, and I'm not a big fan of that look for everyday at work.
Love it! Bought it because of the Birchbox video tutorial!
I watched that tutorial and decided to purchase both the items the makeup artist used - Stila Custom blush in pink and the Jouer tint in Peony.
The one downside to that video was that I had to really scrutinize the video a few times and then I had to hunt the Birchbox site to figure out which colors she used. She only said the brand and the name of the product, but not the specific colors! So I had to watch the video and switch between the video and the products pages just to narrow down VISUALLY which colors she was using. The brands were clear but the colors she used were not! That was time consuming. I was surprised that a Birchbox video tutorial was lacking such key info.
But I ended up figuring it out and got the ones I wanted.
They are amazing! A purchase I do not regret. Very beautiful pinks. They are lovely on the skin and simple to use. It helps to have that tutorial or I never would have done that mix. I tend to also just use them standalone, but mixing them is a nice change as well.
If you get either of these two products, you will be very happy with your purchase. I know I am. If it helps, I do have the Mad Men cream blush by Estee Lauder and that is one of my tops. I also have Cargo's pink powder blush as well - another top. So that kind of gives you an idea what I gravitate towards in blushes.
Hope this helps anyone!
Best Blush ever!
I loveeee this blush!!! It really does what it says- changes with you skin tone. Every time I wear this product people always comment on how natural my blush looks! I also have let my girl friends try and it can took different on each person. This is a must buy if you on a hunt for perfect blush!
It's a nice pink - looks VERY bright in the package but looks nice on if you use sparingly. Can definitely build it up for a brighter pink.
Love this blush!
It really does adjust to your skin so don't be put off by the bright pink in the container. When you first apply it just lightly apply to the apples of your cheeks and cheekbones then if you want more add a little more. It seemed to take maybe 30-60 seconds for it to settle and it really looks natural. Of course, it is pink so if you want coral or something else make sure you get that. But this pink's shade will adjust so it looks natural for you.
Not sure it changes that much...
I do like this product and it looks good, but it's quite bright and doesn't level off enough that I'm comfortable wearing it every day. It's great if you're trying to do a bold cheek, but for a professional context, it's a bit much.
Don't let the color fool you! I used a large blush brush and applied to my cheeks, wow it gave the perfect glow to my face. I just love how it looks on. If you aren't sure what color to get, I don't think you will be disappointed in this one! It sure is one of a kind!
