Both Colors are lovely , and I did my makeup at 7.30 am and at 6.00 pm I was still lovely and glowing , so you need these in your makeup collection . ...I use mostly cream products, this one is not a cream blush, it is a tint. it gives a sheer application, it’s good for beginners or someone who doesn’t like a lot of blush. i personally prefer the nude stix cream blushes and they last longer. i found that this one faded on my really quickly. but on the lips i actually liked it, i would call this a lip product and not a 3 in one.
