My personal opinion – I often find it hard to find blushers that will actually show up on black skin so have been very happy with this shade. This is a lovely shade of deep pinky red which is quite bright. I myself have a darker skin tone, so the brightness is more subdued against my skin but still very noticeable. Overall i would think this shade suits a slighter tanned or darker complexion. If you are of a lighter complexion this will look great but you probably wont need to build it up as much, unless you like that kind of (obvious make-up look). It has lovely very tiny golden particles on close examination so does give the sheened look as described. I love to wear this in the day time as i quite like the brightness that really highlights my cheek bones. I wouldn’t wear it by itself on my skin without concealer or foundation, as it would look out of place because of the colour. It tends to last all day and there isn’t ever any need to re-apply it, but on my oilier skin tends to look brighter then when its more dry. I prefer to use a brush to apply as you can be as light or heavy with it without it making a mess. It is a little pricey for a blusher but i have had it for months now and still have probably 2/3rd’s left. This shade is also one of those colours that other people i found have admired and asked where i got it from. Bit of a eye-turner i say!
Overall Rating – 7/10 (Only because it is a bit pricey really for such a small area on the face)
