Choose Your Shade!
I am a NW20 or a N4 to N5 .....and with this blush a little goes a long way. Its a cool pink that I will use as a winter blush. Its very romantic and smells so good....it smells exactly like fresh roses.....i use a little brush and extract bits out of the gold rose for an eyeshadow highlight when i dont want to use a bunch of eyeshadow and really love the compact. It really does make you just FEEL victorian in the winter. It's hard to explain, but I love it :D Thank you beautylish for being a great site that allows me to read up on all the cool and new stuff that is just fabulous. You are awesome.

Something Completely Different
The media bombards you with so much pink/coral blush that purple looks really out of place. On top of that my cheeks naturally turn pink. I was stunned that my Asian skin (MAC NC25) took the purple blush so well.
The blue and purple tints are sheer on my skin. You barely notice they are cool colors. It is a welcome change for my day look. The colors are perfect for when I want my other features to pop. When you swirl the colors all together you get a cool-toned pale lilac that turns a light lavender in the shade. Your highlights (the apples of your cheeks) have a cool white glow.
Yes, the Anna Sui Rose scent is there! Don't worry it doesn't fight your perfume. You can smell it when you apply it and it goes away once you have set your makeup.
This blush would be perfect for spring. It's a tad too dainty for the intense looks for winter.
My husband bought this for me when he was in Seoul. I actually told him to get me the purple one because I fell in love with purple blushes recently, and I'm a huge fan of Anna Sui's makeup. Everything is so carefully designed. From the packaging to the product itself.
Besides that, it's really good quality and you can use this as eyeshadow. Best if used with a primer though. But as blush, you can just use it on top of your daily base make up routine.
The cost of this product was okay. We paid $37 for it. I don't think it was outrageous, I thought it would be more actually. It is a higher end brand, and you get for what you pay for. And I'm happy paying all $37 for this :))
It's worth it for someone that likes to get out of their comfort zone. Everyone uses pinks and corals, but not many use purple. I do recommend this for fair skin ladies though, because it would look sweet and pastel like. It won't show up much on tan skin.
