HD Blush is rated 4.067001675041876 out of 5 by 597.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful color but must work it in It is amazing blush and last all day long. I watched a lot of review videos and said the pump would always give out to much product. You just have to very slowly push down on the pump to get product. It takes a lot of blending to make you not look like a clown. I use the stipple blush from here to gradually build my color. It helps when you put some powder over it to set it in and take away some of the color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product; bad delivery I love this product, IF you can get it out of the container. This should be in a squeeze tube rather than the pump, as both pumps that I purchased appeared to clog or dry out, preventing me from getting 98% of the product. Frustrating, as I really like this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pigmented, I got the colour superstar and I think it's a great universal colour for all skin tones. The only thing I hate is the pump. A little goes a long way and the pump dispenses way too much product it's so wasteful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I got this in a mystery set, so I'm not too mad, but it (at least the diva color) is way too pigmented and a much brighter pink than anyone would actually wear, and is almost impossible to blend out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from highly pigmented This stuff is so highly pigmented that I wanted to give it 5 stars, but I just can't because of the amount that's wasted due to its packaging. Too bad there isn't a way to pump out less from the bottle. Honestly, I use about 10% of a single pump, if that.Currently, I have Diva and Encore, and plan to buy Headliner next. Normally those colors would be too intense for me, but I've found that topping the blush with the Highlights facial whip and blending really well lightens the HD blush and gives it a uniquely beautiful color and appearance.I thought the facial whip shimmer would be too much, but it's pretty much masked by the strong pigmentation of the blush. However, it does give it an overall pretty glow, which is more than I was hoping for, honestly.Here's how I apply it, just to make sure I don't overdo it: pump some onto the top of my hand, and swirl it with a brush I don't intend to use for my face (at least not until I clean the brush again). Then I take a blush brush (or a contour brush can be perfect too) ,and ever so lightly swirl it into the blush mixture. At this point, I pat the brush onto another part of my hand, in order to take off even more. After applying it to the apples of my cheeks and working my way back carefully, I use the facial whip.I'm super careful about brushing or stippling it onto my cheeks because it is waayyy too easy to overdo it both in applying too much color and applying too much blush on my face. Usually with powder blush, it's so easy to stay right on the cheekbones that even a child could do it, but with this blush it just tends to want to take up too much space on my face. That's a major no-no, because then you have to start all over with taking it off and reapplying primer, foundation, powder, etc.Some people might think this isn't even worth the hassle, but I love this blush once I got the hang of it.Oh yeah, it's really great for those in the entertainment industry too. If you are an actress, singer, dancer, etc. on stage, definitely give this a try. It's sweat proof (once it's set) and the pigmentation will be perfect for the lights and distance of the crowds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pigmented like no other These are one of the most pigmented blushes I have ever come across. It's insane how intense the color payoff is and that's a good thing. Most of the colors are a little too pink for my liking but for the summer I think these are beyond perfect. I also really like the purple one. BUT be very careful with these, a little goes a very very very long way. The only downside to this is the pump. I like the container but since you only need a little bit of product a tube would have been better. The pump just squirts out too much and it's wasteful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use caution I have this in superstar. The color is great, but one full pump dispenses WAY too much product. A quarter pump or so distributed evenly on both cheeks is a great start.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly pigmented I found this at my local dollar tree. The pigment is fantastic, you only need the tiniest amount for each cheek. Blends easily with fingers , brush or makeup sponge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Way too much pigment. No matter how thinly I put it on it looks fake and overwhelming. And now (after only about 5 uses) the pump has stopped working so it no longer comes out. A waste of money. If it were more expensive I'd return it,. As it is, I just threw it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I've actually purchased two different colors of this product. Diva and Headliner, Headliner is the lightest color and to be honest probably the best color to buy lol Diva is SUPER pigmented not a bad thing but unless you are very dark toned or dressing up for Halloween I would not recommend that color to you. The product itself is great quality, it does blend well as far as the headliner one, the packaging is perfect no issues there. I would just recommend elf try lighter shades because these are pretty dark especially for people who are light toned which I am medium and these are still pretty dark even in the lightest shade. I will also add these are crazy LONG LASTING AND HARD TO GET OFF!!! lol Why I say this is because when I swatched to do a video review on my blog I played you know what to get them off especially the diva one haha, I might not use the Diva as a blush but I've improvised and used it as a lipstick and it looks beautiful on your lips and it lasts so that's a suggestion to those who might have purchased it and aren't sure what to do if it was too bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring Headliner back!!! I bought this on a whim after seeing it on you tube "Emily Noel" this is the most amazing blush! The pigmentation is ALL THERE!!! Takes a light touch and after it sets I am good for the entire day and through the evening. The other shades are just as wonderfully lasting but Headliner is my favorite. Bring it back please?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic blush! I just recently thought I should start wearing blush and I got this about 2 weeks ago and cannot rave about it enough!! I purchased 'headliner' and it is the most perfect slightly flushed look. I did as advised and used the stipple brush (for the first time ever) and it worked like a charm! You only need a tiny bit for a lovely glow. I'm going to get another one soon! Wonderful product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Encore... AWFUL... RUN FROM THIS. This is such an ugly color and SO highly pigmented you end up looking like a CLOWN, it's TOO MUCH. I tried applying this on different people using different brushes including the small stipple brush from elf and it's just awful. It stained my brush pink and made everyone look terrible no matter how little you use. I would not even recommend this for a doll halloween costume, it's too hard to use and too pigmented, plus the color is just awful (on my and my subjects at least). I ended up throwing it out, plus it took me about 20 pumps before actually getting any product out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So creamy and blendable! Just the right consistancy! It pumps out easily, but is not runny/watery at all. I purchased the color "Superstar" and was very pleased with it. The color was not harsh at all, while still being effective and it blended right into my skin. It's very easy to work with and a little goes such a long way. And amazing for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I bought this during my search for a new blush. I am a huge fan of cream blushes and this one caught my eye. I was a bit disheartened at the size when I received but you do not need much at all to achieve a natural looking cheek color. A really really tiny dot will apply to your cheek bone with some to spare. This bottle will most likely last me for nearly a full year. It's highly pigmented and easy to blend but does;t disappear after blending. I will buy this product again and again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looked Awful and Stained Everything! I had heard a lot of good reviews for this product, so when I found it at a local store, I was excited. I love my Elf facial whip in pink lemonade, but it doesn't last all day. So, I thought I'd try this and see if it lasts longer.It was a terrible mistake!I did half a pump and saw it was really bright, so just to test the waters, I put the pad of my pinky in the already small amount and put one very tiny smaller-than-a-crumb-size dot on my cheek. When I moved this amount of blush along my cheekbone, it looked like I had just been horribly burned. I tried to use my beauty blender, and it stained the sponge. While trying to fix it, the blush got in my hair and won't come out! I had to cover my cheeks with two layers of concealer and a layer of my regular foundation just for it to look like a normal amount of blush. It wouldn't even wash off my hand! It spread, and as I went through my day, I washed my hands three times just to get rid of the bright pink stain.This is hands down the WORST product I've ever used. I've been complaining about it all day and threw out the bottle. Not even worth the cheap price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from :D SO PIGMENTED! You need a drop about the size of 1/4 of a pea, and it looks like drag makeup. Great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No product in bottle I had been looking forward to trying this blush and ordering all shades if I liked the product. Sadly, no product would come out of bottle no matter how many pumps, it is dried out or just poor design on pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Headliner I bought this at a Dollar Tree when I went to Kentucky for FFA National Convention and I LOVE IT. I got the shade headliner and it's gorgeous. They're so pigmented and creamy and the finish is so soft. I put on my foundation, concealer, this blush, and then I set it and continue with my powders. It's even gorgeous without foundation or when I want a more natural look, I will put on a face cream with my foundation and make it dewy and then put a tiny little dot on my hand and pick it up with my beauty blender and dab it on and don't set it. Absolutely gorgeous.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dried up When I got the product it was all dried up and would not come out of the bottle. Could not get the top off to moisten it up either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only got two uses I have had this product for two weeks and I can't even get any product out of the bottle anymore. I have used this blush maybe 4 times and the product has already dried up inside the bottle and the pump can't push it out anymore. I can see through the clear bottle that there is still product in the bottle, but it seems to be all dried out! Awful...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting I bought this product in superstar hoping to buy a more peachy colored cream blush. Instead I received a very pink color with subtle hints of blue/purple. Maybe I just received a defect because it also felt drier that what I was expecting. The images and video made it look more of a liquid foundation consistency but the one I received is a little more viscous and resistant when I try to pump it out of the bottle and it was hard to blend and thin out. I most likely won't buy this again online, but maybe if I see closer to what I'm looking for in stores I'll reconsider. I hardly have a problem with elf products so this is a rare exception.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So hard It was honestly terrible!!! Like it wasn't soft and blend able it was seriously so hard and I have oily skin so the moment it got to my skin it couldn't blend it was just that small spot that was really pink honestly I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I got this in the color showstopper. I have pretty dark skin so I didn't want anything too bright. It is crazy pigmented so I was impressed with that. I don't like it but I don't "love" it. I have high cheekbones...very high so I like a blush that shows but not to the extreme..this is extreme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver I was skeptical at first, the bottle is as big as a foundation bottle and I did not know what to think but when I applied it was like magic. beautiful color, you need less then the tip of a pen to do beautiful rosy cheeks. It lasted me all day and recently went swimming and it stayed using the primer, foundation blush and the e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set some of my eye makeup had faded but the lips and blush still stayed. My friends were impressed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GORGOUS! LOVE the color and how well this blends into your skin. Stays all day and just a great touch. I have Diva which I was afraid would be a bit much. GO FOR IT! My only negative is how much of the product comes out when using it. There really is no way to limit the amount so kind of wasteful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super pigmented, a little goes way too far I got one of these at the dollar store in a dark berry color hoping it would be a nice dark color for fall. It takes like less than a quarter of a pump to do your whole face. I like to pump out a tiny bit onto my hand, and rub it out into a circle. Then I stipple it onto my cheeks and blend out with a fluffy blush brush. It's hard to work with.The biggest disappointment in the product is the color. I feel like this is probably only a problem for the darker colors, but they aren't the same shade applied as in the tube. The very dark berry color comes off more medium pink looking. Still a decent product for the price, but I'd much rather have gotten one of their powder blushes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blush and lip stains! WHY E.L.F. COSMETICS HD BLUSHES?With 0.51 full ounces/15mL and it includes a plastic cap that snaps and is dispensed through a pump. It's quite portable to pack. At $3 each, I couldn't help but purchase all five shades.APPLICATIONI use the size of a pinhead for each cheek. I work the product on the back of my hand to warm it up and lightly dip E.L.F's small stippling brush and dap off any excess blush before stippling it on to my cheeks. Then I gently stipple in circular motions to soften up the edges. If the color is still too intense, I take another clean E.L.F small stippling brush to help diffuse the color.Remember, less is more when using these highly pigmented HD blushes. Applying the blush with your fingers is another option, but be sure to use light and quick strokes as the product settles quickly.STUDIO HD BLUSH:Headliner - This is a baby pink shade. For me, this is more of an everyday look. I didn't think it would show up on my medium tan skin tone, but it actually gave me a healthy glow.Superstar - This shade is more on the peachy side. I would recommended this shade for medium to tan skin tones. However, I do prefer more pink shades, but no doubt, Superstar is still a beautiful shade that I will use depending on the look I'm going for.Diva - Hot Pink shade that should be used sparingly. Must use with the utmost light hand. It is also gorgeous on medium to tan skin. I must say when I first opened the package, I didn't think I'd be reaching for this shade the most.Encore - A fuchsia shade also beautiful on medium to tan skin tone. I honestly thought I would reach for this shade the most, but I actually like mixing this with Showstopper to create a lovely violet lip color.Showstopper - This is the deepest color of the five with hints of fuchsia shimmer. Like Diva, this should be used with a light hand and blended out thoroughly.TIPThe beauty of cream products is the ability to mix them together to create a new shade. As I mentioned above, I mix Encore and Showstopper together for a soft deep berry lip color and whatever is leftover, I use as cheek color. I also like mixing a bit of Encore and Headliner together to make a deeper pink shade. Individually, these stand alone as both cheek and lip colors.OVERALLSeeing that I have all five shades, I probably won't run out anytime soon. If I ran out of any of them, I would definitely repurchase. These blushes do live up to its claim by staying put all day. I can't speak on the Vitamin E claim since most of the time my cheeks tend to lean more on the oily side. I wore one color everyday during the work week and all of them held up nicely in the warm summer months even for my combination/oily skin.For $3 (USD), you cannot go wrong with spending $15 on all five. The best part that I love about these blushes is being able to create and mix your own color...better yet create and mix your own matching lip and cheek color. E.L.F Cosmetics, you have done it again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from SO BRIGHT!!! I have the superstar color in this and you need like a tenth of a squirt if not less for both cheeks! It is super pink! I bought this to amp up my makeup for dates and such but the first time I used it, It got everywhere and my whole face was basically bright pink. Not a fan myself, but to each their own
