My daughter gave me this blush as a Mother's Day gift. I have to admit that I was skeptical. I've largely given up on powder blush in favor of Julie Hewett's lovely cream blush Cheekies. Not that I've discarded them--I still have a couple of powder blushes, including the nice one that comes with the Lauren Hutton facedisk. But, nine days out of ten, it's the cream blush I reach for.

Having said that, this blush is incredibly nice. It is sheer yet pigmented, and applies beautifully with either a blush brush (I use Bobbi Brown's) or even more sheerly with a skunk brush. The color I have is "nude." I wouldn't call it nude exactly--it's a slightly pink, slightly peach, slightly tan tawny color. But it is not at all orangey or too dark. Since I'm pretty light skinned, I have to use a light hand with blush, but this one is subtle enough for me. No "clown cheeks" here.

I expected to have to exaggerate my reaction to her gift when I called to thank her. But, as it turned out, the blush is so nice that I was able to honestly tell her that I love her thoughtful gift.

That sounds so nice! Picking gifts is so difficult, so it's really fortunate that this one was so well received.

flitcraft - Thanks for the review . Yes, it's impressive she can choose a blush for you... May have to check this out - you always choose the best colors. Hey have you ever tried Vincent Longo - Visuvio lipsheer....
The nude you recommended is my all-time raving fav.... Must thank you.

Hi, sister, nice to hear from you! It's funny--my daughter has a really fine sense of what I will like in clothing and makeup. (Oddly, I guess wrong for her, though.)

I haven't tried the Visuvio lipstain--unfortunately my local Sephora has dropped Vincent Longo. I wish I knew a place that stocked that line--his lipstains are so very nice, aren't they?

I buy skin care stuff for my mom sometimes. She mostly trusts my judgment... Actually, that's not right. She's only become more open to using the stuff I get her because the products I get her have such a great track record but she is generally initially resistant.

I'm on my second Nude VL. And the Visuvio seems close and has good reviews on MUA... Just wondered. Have no Sephora's near me at all. It's always a guess and you gave me the best lipstick tips ever.
sorry to hijack the blush thread. Think it's awesome your daughter has you on target Very Happy
