I tried this blush for the first time today. First of all let me say I have a light skin tone and wear ivory foundation. I found the color to be very pretty. It is sheer and very blendable. If you need more it is easy to build it up without looking harsh or fake. I was very impressed. The amount of product was also very nice. It comes with a soft angled brush in the hidden compartment in the bottom. I used the brush that came with it and it worked great. No line left on my cheek.
