Not the best out there, sadly!

I really wanted to love this blush, however I found that it didn't really stain my cheeks and it came off pretty quickly. Not sure if I just got a bad one? I got it in the color Houndstooth.

Bright and hard to blend
Sampled

The color I received was very bright and the texture made it hard to blend. It does stay on a long time and doesn't budge. But it was too much for my pink toned skin; maybe a more natural color and a little application practice.

Long-lasting color
Sampled

Even though the shade I tried isn't right for me, I am very impressed with how long-lasting this stain is. I wore it over primer and foundation, and the color lasted all day despite being outdoors in the humid weather. It really is an effective stain.

Don't need it
Sampled

As this product touts a 'naturally flushed' disclaimer, I really don't need it, as I am naturally flushed most of the time.

Not thrilled
Sampled

I'm a huge fan of blush and I have to admit that this product didn't do it for me. Yes, it was long-lasting but the color wasn't that flattering and it seemed to just lie flat. Will not be buying.

Old Lady Blush

The color is reminiscent of something your grandmother would wear. I hate it and I hate getting products like this.

Not worth it

Its your common blush, but more expensive and less product. I'm not a blush person though.

apply with a light hand! I was not a fan of this very vibrant color. maybe I am not skilled enough to use it well but I had a hard time even trying to blend it.

Not a bad color

I'm not much of a blush person, but it worked alright with my "summer glow" and would make for a nice addition to a night out make up routine.

Too much
Sampled

I have to be careful with blush since I have rosacea and tend to get flushed easily. This product was a bit too much while it was on and didn't really work with my coloring
