I originally called this blush a dud because of what I thought was a very poor payoff. However, I've used it a few more times and I think I just needed to wear it in a little (or get rid of some hard pan). I am really enjoying the blush now, so if you receive one and have a hard time with it, don't give up. With around 3 or 4 uses, it starts to apply quite nicely.
This blush is very difficult to get any payoff. I prefer the Palace Identity blush to this one. It's so much better!
I bought both of them because I like cats. But since I tried them on, they've become my favourite: they are not powdery at all and blend well with the skin, and their pigmentation is not heavy so I can put them on freely without being afraid to get a patch of colour. I can build intensity easily, if I want to, but I like the natural flushed look they give to my face as they are not totally matte and have a very slight glow. The two of them can pair well with any eyeshadow colour combination, but also they look good if worn alone or with minimal makeup. Win-win product for me!
Anyone who knows Asian brands knows that their products typically have a more sheer/lighter pigmentation. What's great about these blushes is that not only do they have such a stunning design, you can build up the color for a more vibrant look. I usually swirl my blush brush all around the product to blend all the shades together and apply after tapping off the excess. I have medium skin and it shows up well!
