What I Think: Well, I much prefer a cream blush to have a cream finish. This is much too shimmery. Plus, it never sets. I know it is not meant to be a cream to powder finish, but it literally stays so greasy on top of your skin, it just doesn’t work. The only way to make this work is the top it with a powder blush, but I honestly don’t really think it makes much of a difference either way because the color pay off isn’t great anyways (more like shimmery grease rather than any color), so it’s like an extra, pointless step.

Oh, and the packaging is pointless too.

Would I Repurchase: No. I have enough blushes to go through, but even if I didn’t, I think it’s clear that I wouldn’t shell out another $7 for this.

Was I too harsh? Oops!
