You might think this blush is iconic solely because of the controversial name, but the rosy pink shade with a subtle golden shimmer truly does complement all skin tones.
I never fully fell in love with it, however. The peachy-pink shade is certainly flattering, and though I understand the complaints about the pigment and hard pan, I was never bothered by dipping my brush in a bit more because I have a heavy hand with blush. No, I think it was the gold shimmer than made me lose interest -- I like a slightly stronger flushed look and the gold clashed horribly with my pink undertone. Could I have eased up on the intensity? Sure, but I've also replicated this color in cream blush and don't see the point in trying to pan something I'm lukewarm about.
Have never used a blusher till it #hitpan before. I get compliments when using this because it doubles as a highlighter. Also like that it’s buildable. I have dry skin so this works well. I also live in a humid climate. A friend who has oily skin does not use this at all because it looks like an oil slick after a while. Take note!
I have a travel size version of this and while I love the color I can't stand the shimmer. I have a bit of acne and it just highlights the problem so much. I would love to find a version of this that is matte.
