The formula is supposed to have an “ultra-silky” texture that gives a “healthy-looking glow” and a “rush of fresh, radiant color.” The press release is more specific and says it’s supposed to have “buildable dewy color that lasts all day.” According to the brand, the blush formula is a reformulation, but I don’t have any shades in the previous formula to compare to (and it’s been awhile since I last tried one, so all I can say is that they feel, in general, a little smoother). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a lightly dusty texture that ended up being surprisingly blendable in practice. The blush looked glowy on the skin rather than dry or powdery, which was also a pleasant surprise. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear on me.

Wow, I LOVE how glowy this one looks, and $20 cheaper than Tom Ford Love Lust. I haven’t bought any EL for decades, but this one is tempting me, especially since they have some nice GWP deals too. Hmmm…..

It reminds me of Milani’s Coralina. its one of my favorite blushes. i have the flower petal one in coral cove that i like a lot too.

My kind of blush shade; considering I’m close to hitting pan on Nyx Pinched! And still have Nars Orgasm, too. There is just something very flattering about a peachy-pinky blush with soft, finely milled golden shimmer. Especially on warmer and/or neutral toned complexions, I find.

This shade looks so similar to Chanel creme blush Chamade. But i love subtle blushes; so this one( or even Chamade) is a total pass for me
