Packaging: 9/10

This blush comes in a small, plastic compact with a flip-up lid.

Quality: 9.75/10

The formula for this blush is great: it’s not dusty, chalky, or dry. It applies evenly over the skin without being patchy.

The shade Rosy Glow has strong pigmentation, so you shouldn’t need to apply more than one layer–and a light layer at that. The shade is slightly brown-based, so it’s more of a neutral pink shade that works in many different situations.

The shade doesn’t “stain” my skin (though I apply it over foundation), but it absolutely lasts through the day without any fading, even after nine (9) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

This blush is very easy to use because you don’t have to take the time to layer the color and it blends evenly over the skin without needing extra blending.

Price: 9.25/10

For $20.00 you get 0.123 ounces (3.5 grams) of product. This is an average amount of product for a slightly lower-than-average price point compared to similar brands.

    Interesting! A powder cheek stain! I love the ease of applying powder blush but sometimes the staying power is lacking – I’m going to check this out next time I’m at Sephora.
