I love the sephora blush's. I have sensitive acne prone oily skin. Because of this I have some scarring on my cheeks. I don't like using blushes that have any type of shine or sparkle in them at all because 1) it makes my skin look more oily 2)it really emphasizes any texture in my skin. This blush is the only blush I have found so far that comes in entirely matte shimmer free shades.
