Blush Exclusif is a cream blush that comes in a slimline compact. (Can I just add that it smells divine! A bit like candy.... nom nom nom). Anyway, in the pot it's a pale creamy pink, almost balm-like, but once you rub a finger on it you'll see it start to change colour.

Here is the colour that it turned into on my skin.

The fact that this blush changes colour is something you need to be careful of. It's easy to go heavy handed with this blush as you can't see the colour initially, it takes a few seconds to develop. So it's best to apply with a light touch, wait 10 seconds or so, then add more if needed.
Oh and I also wore this on my lips, but it didn't work. It's very drying on the lips as you can see from the pics. Best to leave it for where it's intended.

Enough about its magic colour changing abilities. What about performance? Well, it is a cream blush so you can't expect it to last too long. On my dry skin it lasted 4 hours before I started seeing it fade (although I must add I have a habit of resting my face on my hands if I'm concentrating on something, e.g. reading, on computer, etc.). The best way to get this to last is to layer it under a matching powder blush, as that way you'll have a cheek colour that lasts the whole day.
