Has the perfect shimmer that I have been looking for in a blush!
I have been searching for a blush that was shimmery instead of matte, but I have tried many different products with no results. I wanted more of a sheer, not too bright blush that just brings a nice shade and contour to my face. I found this product, and I absolutely loved that it was within a palette. I thought it was a wonderful way to get a more layered and dimensional blush look, without purchasing three different blush colors. This comes with a very light pink, a darker salmon color, and a rose pink. The three go together beautifully and aren't too bright on my face.
CoverGirl Instant Cheekbones Conturing Blush a nice option!
As I have gotten older and had children, I wake up looking washed out and limp some mornings. This blush gives me back my youthful girlish color. It makes me look pretty and awake, instead of tired and frumpy. It looks really natural. I love the fact it comes in three colors so you can blend. It does give you instant cheekbones. Like all CoverGirl products, the price is right! This is very inexpensive for a great product. The sizes of the blush are generous and it comes with a great basic applicator brush. I sometimes have to reapply half-way through the day, but I think that is to be expected. I like that this blush doesn't have any sparkle or shimmer to it. It is just a nice rosy color for your cheeks. It really does bring out the cheekbones. It goes on well after my foundation and sticks pretty good. It is pretty gentle on my skin. It has a nice light smell that might bother some, but I like it.
cover girl blush, great bang for your buck!
I love cover girl blush and I always use it. It is so affordable and it lasts me a long time, I use it every day so that is saying something. I love their colors especially soft mink. I feel like that color looks good on everyone. Cover girl is a great go-to brand to buy make-up because it is not so expensive but it is really good quality stuff. I recommend it to everyone and I have noticed that my friends who buy expensive make-up at department stores have less reliable make-up than I do! Also a plus, the compact is sturdy. I have bought expensive kinds before and it seems like no matter what the blush breaks up into small pieces if you drop it once, where as with this blush it doesn't break up into powdery mess. This is a huge deal because I carry my make up with me I am always on the go.
A great Blush - Covergirl Instant Cheekbones
I love CoverGirl Instant Cheekbones for the variety of colors that you get in one container. I do not use them together on a typical application, so that makes for great variety for evening and/or morning wear. I pick a nice neutral tone like peach, and then have three shades that I can blend or use alone! Covergirl Instant Cheekbones is reasonably priced with coupons appearing commonly in the P and G inserts for Covergirl make-up, making it a very economical decision as well. I have never found a perfect blush - ie. one that will not wear off. The CoverGirl Instant Cheekbones color probably lasts at least 2 hours and possibly 3 depending on the situation. I find this a sufficient amount of time for most of my outings!
CoverGirl Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush does it all.
I am not going to sit here and tell you that this is a good product. I'm also not going to tell you that this is a bad product. Because it's not either. I will start with the positive and work my way to the negative;
The colors are very nice. You also get three colors in one pallette so you can mix them together, for the exact shade you're looking for. Plus, the light, medium and dark shade help so you really can contoure your cheeks, and create more dimension to them.
There is a ton of colors to choose from also, which means of course that you are going to get a more natural and more unique color that fits your skin and style the best.
It's pretty cheap, and you can also use CoverGirl coupons which makes it even cheaper. It also comes from a great company, that is highly respected and has definitely done a good job at earning that respect.
It isn't iridescent or shimmery at all. it has no spunk, no attitude, and no style. I like my blush to make me glow from the cheeks out. And to add a little bit of a youthful shine and sparkle. This doesn't.
Also, it doesn't last very long. Maybe a few hours, tops.
It doesn't blend in well at all. it's very obvious that you are wearing blush, because it just sits on top of your skin, or the rest of your make up, and as much as you use your blush brush, kabuki brush, or mineral brush it just won't blend in. Which is slightly annoying, because nobody wants to look like a clown!
This product is just an average blush. I wish I could've expected more from one of my favorite brands, but I didn't get what I usually expect from CoverGirl with this. This is good for younger girls who just start to wear make up and need to experiment and see what they like, and what colors look best on them, but other than that this isn't too great of a product. Just an average, run of the mill blush. If you want something more fun, with more spunk, I would go with a different one.
This product has good things and bad.
A good thing would be the colors. It comes in many different shades and colors. I like that you get three shades in one, however I wouldn't recommend using them all three at ocne. It doesn't look very nice when you do. Just kinda look like you've been outside in the negative number weather and you're cheeks are frostbitten in some areas but not. Although, it matches your skin tone so not that dramatic. Second of all, it slides down your face. Like, to your jaw bone almost :/ Which isn't cool. Obviously. However, after it slides down the color lasts! Haha... although, if you just use a little of one color, on your apple or bone it works nice and looks pretty natural. It is very natural looking, and is a great price, and you get a lot of blush for the price. I do use mine- but i have other favorite blushers I use more. Bottom line- is good deal for the price but if you're looking for a top of the line, top notch, amazing, drop dead I have to have this and use it everyday blusher this isn't it. But, if you just want anice every day blusher, this is alright.
CoverGirl gives you Instant Cheekbones!
I recently purchased Cover Girl Instant Cheekbones Blush in the color Sophisticated Sable and let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised. This contouring blush has three variations of the shade of blush you want to use which gives you the opportunity to *literally *create cheekbones! By applying the middle shade to the "apples" of your cheeks (smart of Cover Girl to give you the most of this variant because it is meant to cover the most area on your cheeks) and then the darker contouring variant in the hollows of your cheeks, and then the light shade on the top portion of the apples of your cheeks, you will find cheekbones magically appearing on your face.
The brush provided is predictably tiny - but it's good for "on the go" applications. And you almost *have* to use the tiny brush to get at the darker and the lighter variants.
I would have rated this blush a "five" if they offered it in a larger case for home use.

I originally bought this product for my mother. She raved about it - it lasted her a really long time and she loved the colors (especially the variety)! I decided to buy myself one right before my wedding. The darkest shades go on darker than I expected, but look really nice when contouring for a more dramatic effect. The lightest shade can also double as a highlighter above the eyebrows, chin, etc. I've had the product for 6 months now and have been using it daily and have found that I still have a ton left. There are a variety of good shades available - it was tough to choose. I've bought this product before but found that the shade had too much purple in it. I tried to find my mom a peach but found that there wasn't a shade in this color family. Most are rosier shades of pink, which seems to match a variety of skin tones. Although the blush doesn't have a ton of staying power, the price is relatively low compared to similar products.
Great Value for the Money
*The Cover Girl Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush has been my constant go-to whenever I need a quick makeup touch up. It gives a nice glow to your face without making you appear too made-up or fake. It has a more natural look, and that I Iove. I really like the tri-tone palette feature. It offers three colors that you can blend together to create the perfect look you want or just use one of to go for a lighter or darker shade according to your mood or occasion. The value of this contouring blush is incredible really; it comes in a little compact that is easily carried wherever you wish, and you get three blushes for the price of one, as well as a mirror and blush brush. This lasts me for a good three or four months and it is very inexpensive, as are most Covergirl products. This is a product that is good for all ages as it can be worn to please and as a powder is easily applied as you wish. *
Beautiful, natural-looking Blush trio.
I have been really happy with this Instant Cheekbones Conturing Blush from Cover Girl, just like I've been happy with many other Cover Girl products. Anyway I find that powder blushes are the best blushes, because they look the most natural. This blush is great, because it comes in a trio of shades for the most natural look and "instant cheeckbones" like the title says. Best of all is that it's soo light-weight, you don't even know it's on. It just adds that perfect natural glow and color to your cheeks and stays on pretty well. I mean you might have to reapply it once throughout the day to keep the same color intensity you were orignially going for. I guess I haven't paid a ton of attention to that, because for me I just need a little help with the blush in the mornings and by the end of the day whether it's worn off or not, I have my own color in my cheeks from running around all day, but that's just me. Anyway it's also a great price for what getting. I would definitely recommend trying it out if you haven't already.
