Of the four blushes, this one is the darkest in the pan, but when used, it gives a flushed color that is more pink in nature. When I use this over a liquid foundation that has been set with a powder it shows as a lighter flush of color, which can be built up if desired. When used over a cream blush, normally the e.l.f. shimmering facial whip in Lilac Petal, it shows a little more strongly with less building, and more strongly of the pink. In both cases the blush applies and blends easily. This blush does show more quickly and with less products than the Tawny Peach or the Deeptone blush, so more care is needed if you have a heavy hand with the blush application; it is not uncommon for me to tap a light layer of my setting powder over the blush to tone it down slightly after application.
This is my second favorite for the four Colormates blushes I own.
