BareMinerals’ Avant Garden blush

There's a very faint pink iridescent shimmer with this blush. Otherwise I'd have a hard time seeing it at all. In the jar it looks rather orange - like a deep melon or something. It is warmer, but it's so very sheer I was reminded of Applause blush - which is another “did I even apply anything?” shade. It also reminded me of a slightly deeper, slightly weightier Promise - with a pink iridescence instead of the sparse gold shimmer.

This was included in the first Perfect Gift kit, from QVC. For a brief while my local boutique was giving away this blush and a mineral veil with any purchase over a given amount. I don't know if this blush will ever show up in the permanent line, but I think it will go over well for folks who don't want straight pink, and want a -=little=- pop, but still want something that's very naturalistic.
