I have dry and sensitive skin, and this blush seems to soak in and stay all day without looking splotchy or making me look too dry like powders tend to. I'm in south Georgia and the humid heat is atarting to kick in, but this snooth and naturally formulated blush held true through an 8-hour day walking all over a university campus. I don't use highlighters as I do sweat more here in the summer and I don't need the extra flistened, BUT this blush seems to do a two-one. The pictures don't really show that they have a subtle iridescent effect that makes the catch a little light and gives me a natural highlight. I love how easy I can dab them on with the stick, and then use my fingers to warm and smudge them out so smoothly. Also. The colors are a bit off in the pictures it seems. With the ones I have, Grapefruit has a bit more of a peach undertone to it, and Palermo isn't so strongly red. They are a rather larger stick (more than the Tarte blush stains, for example), and the packaging is professional and classic. I'm in loved with the entire line, and have found a new staple in Grapefruit!
