I purchased these a little while ago - back in late June. I was surprised that the CVS near me actually had them since they are usually sold out of their blushes. I also have Coral Cove from the permanent line but of course, I haven't opened it yet. lol I'm telling you, the makeup addiction can be bad...
Now that they are open, I plan to use them to see how they wear on the face after foundation/powder application. From what I could tell from the initial swatch, these aren't extremely pigmented and I don't necessarily believe that is a bad thing since I really like Luminoso Baked Blush.
I'm still getting comfortable with doing FOTD's since I rarely do my face during the week. I'll try to get some up on here, shortly. :)
Let's get to it - (Clockwise) American Beauty Rose, Awakening Rose, Blossomtime Rose.
Opened (natural light):
Awakening Rose 10 (natural light, flash, natural light):
Blossomtime Rose 11 (natural light, flash, natural light):
American Beauty Rose 09 (natural lighting only):
Out of the three, I have to say I like Awakening Rose and Blossomtime Rose best. Blossomtime Rose is peach and Awakening Rose is a soft rose.
I also noticed that American Beauty Rose came off a little chalky.
Nonetheless, the rose design of the product is so darn cute and that makes me not want to use it. lol
Be back soon!
