How to Use
Rated 4.63 out of 5 stars
I bought the lightest shade of this blush. I am VERY fair skinned (Think: NARS Siberia foundation color!!). You literally CANNOT over-blush or fail with this one. It gives a VERY natural, satin(?) blush to the cheeks, while softening and slightly blurring the more mature, textured skin on the cheek area. I ordered the more nude shade, which does have a more reflective sheen to it, and it also goes on quite light but I think I'll save it for summer due to the overall tone of it.
You can't beat the price! When I swatched it on the inside of my arm, the color showed up really well and it was really pretty!! But when I applied it to my cheeks, I couldn't tell that I had even put it on! I have medium skin tone and I use a light bronzer. The blush wasn't even noticeable. Maybe if you have light to very light skin it would show up better.

Yes this product is on the cheaper side, but it still didn't do much for me. It was hard to blend once I got it on my skin. The color is nice but a bit sheer. Might work on some skin types, but not mine.

Great price and it works perfect .

All of these blushes are lovely! Pigmented, but not too pigmented to where you look like a clown… Befitting is my everyday blush (exact dupe for MAC blushbaby) . They are very comparable to the MAC sheertone blushes…

I have normal skin, with acne. My skin tone is fair with neutral undertones and a touch of peach. What a beautiful blush. I got it in Believing, which is just so wonderful for my skin tone. And it doesn't make me break out. I also wear a mask about 5 hours straight and this stays on. It's very buildable as well.
For the price, why not? I choose this over my NARS blush, almost every time.
A tip: I line my lips and then fill them in with a pencil near my natural lip color. Then I add the blush on top of it. It looks so beautiful, especially in Believing. And it matches my face blush.

Love the color and how it blends well on top of bb cream. It's a soft blend and using a blush brush really makes it pop!

"befitting" is just the perfect everyday kinda muted shade! i have very pale skin & love it.
Crystal from Texas
This is one of the best blushes I've ever owned. It's better than most high end, but the packaging! I've owned 3 shades and after a few uses the hinge of 2 of them has broken so the lid just sits on the blush now. I'd pay a little more if the packaging was made more sturdy to hold up longer.
Dee from FL and TN
Definitely pigmented. Nice color and buildable for different skin tones. Stays all day.

I love everything about these blushes! The only problem I have is that I need more shades to add to my collection. Pretty please, Essence!
Ultalover from PNW
Wanted to try this based on the good reviews and of course the price point. The color I choose was Believing. It is super light in color and not pretty at all, just washed out and unflattering.
Kellie from las vegas
I was never really into blush until trying this product.
Looks really pretty on the skin.
Goes on nice & smooth & its super pigmented.

Sammy from NY
believing is a more purplish blush than mauve but still suited for olive skin tones very cute and long lasting it's buildable so great for natural or bold looks if you're looking for a more pink blush shade belittling is gorgeous too
Tanya from Toledo, Ohio
I love most items I've tried from Essence and, based on the reviews and cheap price, I had to try this out. I got Bespoke and am in love with the color. As others have stated, it really is pigmented and lasts a really long time! I'm going to get at least one more color, maybe even all of them.
Sami from Honea Path, SC
I purchased the shade "Befitting," and this is for sure the best blush I've bought! It's really cheap so I just wanted to try it for the heck of it, but I am so impressed with how pigmented this shade is. A little goes such a long way and it lasts allllll day!!
hair from Dallas
the most beautiful natural looking flush you will ever find!!! I wish I had known about this product when I got married!
StephTN from Nashville, TN
I bought shades bespoke and befitting and they are better than some high end blushes I have tried. They go on pigmented and have the lasting power! I wore one of them for over 15 hours and I could still see it before I took it off. Save your money and try these!
Tia J. from NC
I fell for the fomo! A lot of my favorite YouTubers were raving about how great this shade was, even on more fair skin. I was worried it would be too dark (in the pan it looks like a bronzer.) But when swatched, and applied to the cheeks, it definitely has a beautiful pinky sheen. I applied it over a more peachy liquid blush, and it was absolutely beautiful for fall looks.
Abbi J from South Carolina
I love this blush! I used beloved and it fits my skin tone perfectly and looks natural, I top it with their berry mosaic blush for some extra glow and it comes out amazing, even by itself it will give you a natural look. I also love the consistency of the powder it blends into my foundation and contour well. I will be buying again and making it a regular purchase
Eva from CA
Such a steal for the price. I use this blush everyday in befitting and it's super pretty and also buildable. Definitely try it out before you buy a $40 blush.
