Review:  I spotted these blushes at Walmart earlier this past June when I was hunting for the Milani Powder Highlighters.  I do not think these are new since Maybelline had a Fit Me blush line before.  I believe these are newly repackaged products with a slight change in formula.  The packaging is simple - it comes in a black plastic compact with a smaller clear square on the cover which makes it easier to see the shade of the blush.  It has a white/silver gradient typography on the front packaging and a sticker on the back that details ingredients and what not.  This compact contains 4.5g of product.  I like the size - it is small - but the packaging is decent and perfect to throw in your makeup bag or for travel.

This claims that it enhances the skin tone, blend seamlessly, it has a creamy and smooth texture, wears evenly and complements any skin tone.  The powder itself is creamy and smooth, that I agree.  It is soft.  It does have some slight kick up, but you can always tap the excess product off before applying on the face.  This product swatches nicely on the arm.  However, the top swatch, you can see some slight shimmer.  It is pretty - actually reminds me a little bit of Nars Orgasm blush.  However, when I apply this on my face, the shimmer sits on top of the skin which makes it hard to blend.  The blush is also too sheer and because it has shimmer that layers on top of the skin, you are going to be inclined to add more blush to cover the shimmer.  However, if you do this, it does look cakey on the skin.  The shade Buff did not do anything for me at all.  I thought it would be a more muted nude shade with a brown undertone - it did not show up on my face at all.  Longevity is not something this blush has and I am definitely not a fan of that.  Based on items mentioned above, I will not be repurchasing this product nor will I continue to use it.

If you want to try this product, purchase it at Walmart.  If you do not have a Walmart near you, you can get it at Ulta for $5.99.
