The cardboard packaging is really feminine. My one has a picture of the face of a pin-up poster classic blonde which I think is quite pretty. There are peaches in the background too. The box humorously says that the product is "tested on celebrities not animals"! There are pink polka dot prints on a black background at the flaps, and when you open the box up, you see that the actually packaging of the box is exactly the same.
The box is made from thick card and has a magnetic flap lid. It's pretty compact with the lid opening up to reveal a small square mirror that is sufficient for on-the-go application. The inside is just pink polka dots on a black background.
I ordered this over a year ago from BeautyBay and paid £14 for it back then. The packaging, colours, and weight has remained the same since then. From the colours on the website, I opted for Papa Don't Peach since it looked to be a more subtle, natural shade than the other ones. When the product came I was a bit disappointed, since the colour in the box actually looked several shades darker than in the picture!
Upon application though, it looks really lovely, light and natural like I wanted! What a relief! It was £14 (for me) after all! There is a really nice sheen to it - shimmery but doesn't scream at you at all! I bought their TooFaced retractable Kabuki brush at the same time and find that it works really well as an applicator. You can layer it pretty effectively if you want your blush to show up more. I've found though that it can be very easy to overdo it by applying too much, so I make sure to really tap off any excess and apply a little at a time to check how it looks!
My skin colour is quite pale (I wear studio moisture tint by Mac most of the time for my foundation), but I tan quite easily. The colour looks noticeable on my skin, but I don't know how well it would show up on darker skin tones. I did experiment with layering but found that it was quite easy to end up looking very cakey when going for very noticeable, deep blush!
I personally really love this blush and think it looks quite flattering! It works really well on me and the shimmer is beautiful! I think the packaging is really nice too. I'd give it 4.5/5!
Summary: A really pretty blush for all occasions!
