I love this blush! It is pretty highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way, but the color is so spectacular and easily blendable, it's hard to mess this up! It's a dark peach color, with minimal shimmer but no glitter. I think I saw others say it is matte, but I see a soft sheen on mycheeks when I use it. Which I love! Very healthy looking, flattering to many skin tones. I am fair and it looks great on me, my daughter is medium and it looks even better on her! Totally worth the price, as many theBalm products are.
