More highlighter than blush
I just received this (along with a few other products from Mirenesse) in the mail Thursday (after waiting just over a month for my order). Ugh. That aside, I was really looking forward to this product. I purchased Peach Blossom, thinking it would be the perfect summer colour for me and my olive/tan skin.
The box describes: "designed to create a natural healthy blushing glow". My thoughts? Not happy with the colour payoff. It is definitely more a highlighter rather than a blush so yes, you're going to get a glow. But for my skin tone... no go for colour. I will give them this, the shimmer is lovely and, as a highlighter is a great product to try. But not the 2-in-1 they say it will be.
The applicator is a sponge that you need to press onto your skin in order to distribute. It took forever to get through the sponge and I really did get sick of pressing. Once I managed to get some out (by opening the container rather than using as designed), I managed to get some makeup action.
As a highlighter: a little will go a long way, but I don't see me loving this product in comparison to using MAC or Modelco highlighter powders.

I really liked this. It gives a subtle natural look without looking flushed

I have Rose Dhalia and Nude Camelia and love them both. The colours are nice and subtle and you can build them for a more dramatic effect. I love the packaging, too - though I don't bother with the applicator and use a brush instead. Highly recommended.

Quick n easy
This applicator brush is great for some colour on the go. You can control the density easily and its a great travel item.

At first I really liked this blush highlighter (I have Rose Dahlia and Mata Hari) as it’s just so lightweight and pretty. It really is superfine and allows my skin to breath. It colours the apples of my cheeks perfectly and I use the Mata Hari as a highlighter on my face and décolletage.
It’s great value because the bottle is huge and will last forever. The lid has a mirror (another Mirenesse genius moment) which is brilliant for when you are on the go!
My only criticism is that the puff applicator is difficult to remove (so I can clean it) and even harder to put back on. I ripped mine trying to gently ease it back on which makes a little harder to use.
Using a brush works okay, but because it is a super fine powder, it ends up all over the bathroom (and my clothes) if I’m not super careful.
As with all of Mirenesse's products, I highly recommend getting them on sale at TVSN or when Mirenesse sends a Specials email (which is everyday).

a little light on
I found this foundation too subtle and too difficult to use. I think it is best to bypass the powder puff on the tip as it seems to puff more out into the air than onto your skin. If you have flawless skin to start with this is probably a good option for you as you wouldn't need much. If you have blemishes or large pores this probably isn't suitable.

Forget the 'powder puff' that comes with the blush and use a brush.

Another great Mirenesse product.
I have this in 2 different shades and alternate using them depending on the colour scheme of the day/outfit etc.

It is perfect
I love there is a mirror on it - I carry it in my bag everyday because even if the rest of my face is tired from a long day all i need to do is reapply the blush and I look fresh again.

Amazingly subtle colour
This product allows you to build up the colour intensity. I use Rose Dahlia. Never looked back.
