Not a bad blush. It's very sheer, but I think that's workable because it allows you to build up to the color you want (which I would prefer instead of trying to take off too much color). It was hard for me to notice in the pictures online that the blush has a shimmer to it. Even when I took it out of the packaging, it doesn't seem very shimmery (think matte blush mixed with an illuminator), but when I applied it after my illuminator, boy I looked ILLUMINATED and not in a good way. I have very fair skin, so the Perfect Pink really was nice as far as color looking natural on my face. It also applies really smoothly, and doesn't get streaky.
