The Dollskin Blushes always intrigued me, but they were not something I indulged in previous to the 40% of liquidation sale. I debated getting the Dollskin Palette, which contained four of the blushes, but passed on it due to the glitter factor in two of the shades. Instead, I went with two single shades: Neapolitan Lane and Carved Rose.
The packaging is very feminine, albeit far less saccharine than the original iteration (pink, plastic, cutesy-girly. The pewter shade of the plastic skews it a little more towards the elegant side.
Because of the drier texture, they can pick up a little on any flakiness on the cheeks, but not very noticeably. Wear time is very good - they last a regular work day when applied over foundation.
Carved rose is a lovely medium, cool-toned pink that looks bright and healthy on my fair-medium skintone, and should show up fairly well on deeper tones. Neapolitan is an beige-apricot, extremely natural on me. Applied lightly it gives just a bit of warm and depth. I think this kind of shade would be excellent on very fair but warm-toned skin to give the cheeks definition without being overwhelming.

Pros: Matte finish makes these very day appropriate, as do the flattering colors. Great texture for both sheer and intense application.
Cons: Can emphasize flaky skin in a minor way.
