I quite like the colour (Flirtatious Pink) as both a lipstick and a blush, but it has NO staying power. In addition to that, it sinks into the fine lines on your lips and if you have dry lips you will get the dreaded "crusty' outer ring. I don't recommend this.

Not a favourite
I originally bought this thinking that it would be similar to the Stila Cream Colour Bases, but sadly I was mistaken. The consistency is really thick and made it difficult for me to blend, and it also really dried out my lips when I used it as a lip colour.

Hated it. Aaaaabsolutely hated it.
It's incredibly thin and lacking in pigment, and greasy as hell to boot. It might work for people with extremely dry skin who only like a little colour, but it didn't work at all on my combo-oily (mostly sweaty) skin. I had to build and build to achieve a level of colour that I was happy with, and that just made the product slide around my face. It's impossible to use on my skin without setting with a powder blush on top. I'm personally a fan of setting cream blush with powder blush for added intensity, but I hate that when I use this product, I feel I *have* to top it with a powder. It's not that I want to top it with a powder, it's that if I want to step out of the house not looking like a grot, I *have* to top it with a powder blush. Applying and wearing this product is a major chore.

The colours are great. I love the herbal smell to it and the cute packaging. But it does not last long, and I can't use a blush brush. The only brush I have found that picks up the product is a foundation brush, other than that your fingers are the best way to go.

Used to love it
I previously used this product as a part of my everyday routine. i stopped using it because it made my cheek look to red. I have found that other cream blushes that are lighter pink suit my pale complexion better

Pain to apply evenly, though great colour
The colour is awesome, something like a bright popsicle pink, however goes on pretty streaky if you apply with fingers, so i've found the only way to get even application is with a stippling brush, which works pretty well. Staying power is not very long at all I would say probably around hours max, this isn't much of an issue if you tend to touch up your makeup a lot, but for those who like products with long staying powder, I would probably set it with another blush on top.
I really hate the scent (Maybe just me, i don't like the scent of lavender) but it also smells synthetic. For those whose skin gets blocked up easily i would avoid this, because it does contain mineral oil.
The packaging could be improved, probably a flip top instead of a screw lid for convenience sake. You do get a pretty big amount of product (4.5g) but this is what I would say is the average size for blush. Overall, not the best cream blush I've ever used, there are many things that could be improved. But for this price, I guess it's expected.

I have this blush in Flirtatious Pink, It's a pretty colour but I find that the blush is hard to apply and blend in. I also find that It's very sticky. It's O.K but I won't be repurchasing this.

Okay, not fantastic.
I have the shade in Dusky Rose, and it is a really pretty warm toned pink that smells like roses. On the lips it gives a quite opaque colour payoff. I don't really enjoy this on the cheeks, because it is quite hard to blend seamlessly, and especially as I have acne and redness that I cover up with foundation and concealer, this blush seems to take the face makeup off and make my problems more prominent.

I found this too be too greasy and the colour came across as really washed out and thick instead of a tint. I kept it in my case, but I didnt use it very often. Would only be good perhaps at a day at the beach.. but even then I would prefer the Becca Tint.

not the best
this cream blush is not smooth to apply, you have to rub your fingers on the blush because it gets a bit hard to blend.
The pigmentation is great though i don't really like the smell of it.
i wouldn't buy this again.
i dont even use mine anymore
