I got a sample of this color but it looked so pink in the container that I thought I am not going to like this since I normally use a more dusty rose type compact blush with a slight clay color type undertone from a different brand. I am trying to go all minerals so I tried a few samples of various colors of the Sterling blushes. This went on as kind of a very pretty color of pink that I actually liked a lot. Now, on my fair skin, it did soon turn a more muted dusty rose color anyway after it was on a few minutes. But that is on me and I still liked that color also. Regardless, it is kind of what I was looking for so I ordered a full size. It was the perfect amount of color for me, not too light and not too dark.
