HD Blush is rated 4.1478 out of 5 by 487.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was hesitant, but I was wrong. I bought this after hearing amazing reviews. I don't usually wear blush. I have very pale skin and I find it difficult to find blushes that give me that desired "healthy glow" without making me look like a clown. I find most blushes are either too dark or too light/shimmery like a highlighter. Also, I just don't like spending money on something that will go to waste, so I was VERY hesitant to buy this.I chose the shade Headliner as everyone raves about it and says it's the best colour for fairer skinned individuals. The first thing I thought was the bottle is so tiny- cute, sleek, chic, but tiny. Upon application, I realized why that's not such a bad thing- this is SUPER pigmented. Like, crazy, ridiculously pigmented. I press the pump down about half way and the back of my hand looks burnt. So a light hand, and a good brush, is required. This bottle will last me a long, long time.The consistency is thick yet a bit creamy and the finish goes to more of a powder. It does not dry tacky or anything. It feels great on the skin, and if you are gentle with the amount you apply it looks great! It's better to put on too little at first than too much. It is harder to work with than a powder blush- it takes some learning, but it is worth it.I see a lot of people saying they have pale skin and all of these blushes are too dark. I am very pale. It is so easy to pick concealer and foundation shades for myself, because typically it's the lightest one (Ivory). The first time I applied this, it was too much- I looked flushed. So the next time, I used a quarter-half a pump on the back of my hand, swirled my brush in it, dabbed it on the back of my hand a bit, and then I applied carefully. Results were great!I adore this. I wear it everyday. It lasts pretty much all day, the colour is perfect for me. I'm just so happy. The only con is that it takes a bit of practice (I have barely used blush, let alone liquid blush so), but the pros really make it worth the effort.I have also used this on my lips as a stain, and it is gorgeous. I haven't tested it thoroughly, so I can't speak for wear or anything but the colour looks beautiful on the lips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I purchased this blush in Superstar and Showstopper, they are amazing! Yes, they are EXTREMELY pigmented, so about half a dot is all you need, which is awesome. Great value! I read a lot about this not being for beginners, I am a beginner and unable to achieve a contoured look or apply blush in a way I feel looks nice, but with this I was finally able to get a nice lightly contoured look. I applied it after my e.l.f flawless finish foundation, using the elf small stipple brush (which is amazing!) and I just absolutely love it! I do recommend this product but don't recommend applying it directly to your face. I applied a small dot in my hand and dipped the brush into it lightly, then applied it to my cheeks. This is definitely worth a try!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, bright color but does not last long It has amazing bright color and you dont have to use much, however, it gets bad and clumpy rather quick. If you are going to use it everyday and use it up, it would be great, i only used it occasionally and it got clumpy after 3 weeks or so.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Colorful I love the color i purchased but it gets dry to quickly. So I have to rush and blend in the blush before it drys and looks uneven. It is great but I have to work with it a lot to get it in a even setting. A lot of reapplying to succeed my look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its a great liquid blush I got it as a little Christmas gift, and it is a super bright and long lasting blush. A little goes a very very very long way. im almost a little scared to use it. but it is great quality, not the easiest to apply.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not ideal for pale skin There is nothing wrong with being pale; pale is beautiful. I am incredibly pale myself. If you are pale, it doesn't take heavy colors to blush those cheeks and make them look even more beautiful than they are naturally! The lightest shade of this cream blush shows up incredibly dark on pale skin, and incredibly thick. Even the slightest dab is too thick. This product also has a very interesting texture- and is very hard to blend. It sets extremely quickly, which makes it hard to work with and blend correctly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from blah I ordered two different colors. Not a huge fan. Thought the darkest would be a beautiful warm tone, boy was I wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pigment While this product is intensely pigmented, if you learn how to work with it, it will blow you away! The two tubes that I have come out as more of a thick, candle wax consistency. I push the tiniest bit onto my finger, press it on the back of my hand gently, then dab it on my cheeks and blend it quickly with my fingers, first, then a stippling brush. I find the color to be just right, not too heavy. I took one star off because I wish the product were less like a crayon consistency and more of a creamy consistency, but I love this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes some practice I bought this and I loved it. You use to use 1/2 a drop to get a very beautiful pigment on your cheek.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from VERY DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH I was so incredibly excited to get these (I ordered 4 out of the 5 colours) but I quickly regretted this purchase. The product is FAR TOO PIGMENTED. Usually I complain about things not being pigmented enough, but these are just RIDICULOUS. I think they might be good as a lip stain, though I haven't tried putting it on my lips. I tried putting a teensy tiny dot on my finger then blending onto my cheek only to find that it DOESN'T BLEND PROPERLY. There is a huge, ugly stain where my finger first made contact with my cheek and it is SO HARD to blend it out with my fingers. Then it stains your fingers and won't come out until you wash your hands with makeup remover, which for me is a waste of makeup remover. It is EVEN HARDER trying to apply this product with a brush. In fact, it pretty much ruined my brush by making all its bristles stick together. To cap it all off, the pump on this product doesn't work half the time, so you'll end up pumping it vigorously twenty times until a huge gush of product shoots out and makes a huge mess everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich pigment, great buy! I have this blush in Headliner, and I love it, although be aware that this is a very strongly pigmented blush and very little goes a long way. For both cheeks I tend to use just a tiny bit, about the size of a seed bead. Then I blend it between two fingers and swipe it gently across the cheeks. I'm looking forward to trying elf's powder blushes, this is my first go with a liquid blush. I have a feeling this tube of blush is going to last me a very long time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to blend The pigmentation in this product is wonderful, but the staying power isn't the greatest and it's very hard to blend. The product is kind of powdery. I don't use mine as a blush anymore, I use it as a lip tint and I love it for that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope The pump stopped working after maybe 2 uses. Waste of money. Product itself was really watery and cheap looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product!! I bought this blush a while back in the shade "Diva" and it worked pretty well!! It is a little hard to blend it in sometimes because it is SO pigmented, but otherwise it's great!! I actually used it for halloween when I dressed up as Audrey Hepburn, and it worked perfectly!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great pigmentation Got headliner, was hoping it's going to be a light pink color, but it looks more orange than pink :( don't like the shade, but the texture is not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT I have all of these, why? Because they work! They are SOO pigmented you only need a drop for both cheeks, and that's why this things last for a long time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great if you can get it to pump out. I like the color and the application-- a little goes a long way. However, the first and second time I used it, it took about 30 seconds to get anything to come out. This is my third time, and I have tried everything-- pumping for minutes on end, even getting the crud out of the opening-- nothing. It's dead. I am disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Way to Use this Blush! This blush can be so difficult to apply. The first time I used it, I thought it would be the same as the ELF Shimmer Facial Whip. Boy, was I wrong! The Shimmering Facial Whip is very pigmented but it does not compare with HD Blush where even a tiny pinprick of the HD Blush can make you look like a clown with 2 extremely red cheeks. I got the color Showstopper. I do admit that this color is too dark for my fair Oriental skintone but I wanted a blush to match my dark lips. the solution is to use this product as a lip & cheek color to minimize waste. Please see my video below for more details. Used this way, my cheeks look like I just came in from the snowy outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Blush of Epic Proportions!!! Working in a Hospital, all the staff dressed up to visit the Children's Center, I dressed up as Raggedy Ann. I need a lip color that would stay on day, so I grabbed the "HD BLUSH", and it worked like a CHARM! I also used it on my nose and on the cheeks...I highly recommend using the stipple brush with this product if applied to the cheeks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hated this greasy mess. Bought this a while back. Used it, or should I say tried to use it 3 times. The pump dispenses way to much, its extremely oily, unnatural pigment, & stains everything including hand, cheeks, brush & beauty blender. Had to scrub my hands with hand scrub to get the oil off, and it still stained. Unless your using this for dramatic stage makeup or Halloween makeup then don't bother. Its just a mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! It spreads really well on a brush or with fingers. love the color. you only need half a pump for both cheeks for daily use, more if you're trying to be a little more bold. very pigmented.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Use very little to make a big difference. Love this stuff. It looks so natural, but don't overdo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and vibrant color I own Diva, Encore and Superstar. They are indeed extremely saturated with potent color and require trial and error to get it right, but they're worth the effort. I like to squirt out a tiny bit onto a square of toilet paper and then take an even smaller portion from that and mix it with a little moisturizer on my fingertips. Once the HD Blush and moisturizer combine to form a creamy sheer color, I sweep it on with my fingertips. The result is a smooth, moist application with a more sheer wash of color than straight application.It's mind blowing how little product it takes to overdo it. The first time I tried it, I looked like a 3 y/o who smeared her mommy's lipstick all over her cheeks. I also like to use the HD Blush as lip color, but not at full strength.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings... I bought two of these HD Blushes because most of my favorite YouTubers use this and say amazing things about it. I have mixed feelings about this product. WHen I first got this blush, I squirted like 3 squirts onto my hand, and rubbed it in. BIG MISTAKE! It was stained for 2 days. This has so much pigmentation! Pigmentation is great in most cases, but I'm my opinion, this pigmentation is a bit much. I out some on the back of my hand, and then take a tiny bit of the blush with my Small Stippling Brush from E.L.F, and blended it out on my hand, and then put it on my cheeks. (if i'm using it wrong please tell me(: ) My brush was bright pink, and I had to wash it out multiple times for it to work for foundation again. Don't use your most prized stipple brush for this. Overall, I am not super happy about this, won't be buying it again, but will use it while it lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pigmented I first bought superstar (coral shade) and I really liked it so I also bought encore (warm bright pink). The pigmentation is very strong on these so use them sparingly. I wouldn't recommend using fingers to blend these because they set quickly. I use the ELF small stippling brush for blending. Once they set, they last all day. You can use these on your lips aswell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pigmented! I have mixed feelings on this product mainly due to the packaging. A little of this goes a long way, but trying to only get a little out is tough with the pump. It dispenses a generous amount for what is actually needed. Otherwise, I find the consistency to be smooth and creamy without being heavy. The pigmentation is superb, therefore, good blending is a must. Lasting power is about average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hate this product but it is a good product. Ok so I personally hate this product because it is so pigmented that I just can't get it right. I am so pale that I blend in with the walls. For someone who really wants a pop of color, this is perfect. These are very pigmented and last all day. I'm going to probably finish mine off as a lipcolor. I wouldn't personally repurchase but this could be a holy grail product for someone else.
