I've had a really hard time trying to find a blush which complements my skin tone, blends nicely, and lasts for 8 hours + whilst I'm at work - and I've finally found it! The shimmer in the palette looks quite intimidating but once of the cheeks it is very subtle and just gives a beautiful healthy glow. You only need to tap your brush into the product once, and you get more than enough product for application. It blends with no effort required at all, and doesn't go patchy even the slightest bit. I've found that it does last for at least 8 hours, but haven't tested it longer than that yet - I have a feeling it'll last plenty longer as it still looked absolutely beautiful at the 8 hour mark. The only negative I've noticed is that the shimmer does transfer ever so slightly when you touch your face throughout the day - really nothing that's bothered me in the slightest in all honesty. The colour stays on my cheeks and it doesn't make it patchy despite the transfer. 100% recommend to everyone as I feel that this is a blush that would work for any skin tone.
