SeriousShivers says:

I have these blushes in Secret It Girl and Natural Beauty. Secret is more of a peach with shimmer but there’s just waaaayyyyy too much shimmer! Natural is bronzy shade but I wish it’s a little bit more pigmented. :/ I still like these for how adorable it is though. Would still use them.

H. S says:

Would life’s a cherry work on medium/dark olive skin tones? Please help ;__;

Victoria Swanby says:

these blushes are awesome, I’ve been using “life’s a cherry” every day lately:)

Huda S says:

awesome video emily!

cruelangles says:

Too bad i don’t really like “Life’s a Cherry”, it looks a bit too cool and berry for me as opposed to cherry. I love Nyx’s blush in Red and the new darker matte shade from Milani.

AllThingsKatherine says:

essence is one of the few beauty brands that are easily available here, so thank you fr reviewing this!

jasmine brar says:

I love life’s a cherry it’s sooooo pretty

Felicia Kimball says:

I have sweetheart and it has already fallen apart yeah I wasn’t too happy…

Katie Carter says:

I love those blushes. I agree more colors!!!! A peachy coral shade from them would be perfect for summer.

youshimimi says:

Life’s a cherry looks way more like a crazy hot pink color in this video, it’s not like that in real life. It’s actually a very natural, maybe almost reddish color.

I was like “What is the name of my favorite shade from Silky touch Blushes so I can recommend it here?” It’s Life’s a cherry. I didn’t even recognize it in the video 🙂

RamblingsnGrace says:

Those are the two shades I own lol! Love love them and want them all! Great review!jjj

Kate's Pet Corner says:

Gosh I love you, thanks for reviewing affordable products that are not tested on animals 🙂 

Nida Sohail says:

I have “secret it girl” shade from this line,its a peach

Phyllis Simsim says:

I got the shade called” Adorable” a cute baby pink, and “Life’s a cherry” too. I am so impressed by the beautiful softness of those blushes, I got the pressed powder as well (in the shade light beige), you will not believe how soft the powder is too, and yet gives the most amazing matte finish to your foundation, just try not to use much, Essence is amazing indeed!

jj629 says:

emily, do they last long? didnt talk about that….

snowggirl says:

Love ” Sweetheart” for exactly same reason you don’t- the fact that its hard to go over the top with it and so it stops you from having that  aging ” clown doll”  look.

Anna Reed says:

I love these! If you are fair-skinned, you NEED Adorable! It is such a pretty pale pink. It’s my favorite blush right now. Definitely won’t show up on darker skin tones (it’s about as light as Sweetheart, but a cooler pink), but it is perfect when I am doing a smoky eye and don’t want anything too intense on my cheeks.

yimcakes says:

Emily if you could only pick one would you choose the formula of these or elf studio blushes?

Michelleiscul says:

Emily looks so beautiful in purple!<3 🙂

Julia Brez says:

your reviews are always made with such a commune sense, bringing accurate informations and outlining all important stuffs. I really like to watch your videos. and also your voice is so nice and warm.

Christine W says:

Love your hair like this!

Laura Neuzeth says:

Now that you compared them to the Balm Instain Blushes I’m definitely going to pick these blushes out! Thanks for the review.

millreyes says:

Hi em ,I have #20 Babydoll it is a peachie one .I LOVE it!! You need to try it.

Hollie Forrest says:

I really love both of those shades! I almost bought one of these the other day at Ulta, but I wasn’t sure what to expect. Thanks for the great review, putting these on my list of things to try 🙂

Marlena says:

I have one in babydoll and its my all time favourite blush 🙂 Recommed totally!

MI Chiamo Bella says:

I wearing this product I love it and not expensive!

Kaley Rawttenberg says:

Thank you Emily.
I bought the Silky Touch Blush from Essence at an Ulta in Monterey for only $0.79 on clearance about two months ago.
I was impressed it had not been tested by selfish customers. I still sprayed it with alcohol before using it.
The colour is “30 secret it girl” which is a soft shimmery coral. One of my favourite blushes.

Denise G says:

I just recently bought my first Essence blush & it was Sweetheart. I just love it soft & subtle yet can be layered as well to deepen it a bit. I think for blondes fair skin this color is a must have in your collection!!!!  😀

oohlalapaola says:

Em could you do a Graduation makeup look appropriate for pictures please…if you could do a drugstore or high end I just have no idea what to do with my skin I’ve been really stressed and need the good coverage and radiant skin right now please 🙂

Cynthia Janik says:

I’ve been wanting to try those blushes for about a year now, but because they’re so popular the Ultas near me never have any in stock that aren’t messed with. I wanted to see the, in person, but I may just get some in my next online order since they seem worth the money.

Adry J says:

I love essence products, I love all I own, but unfortunately at my local ULTA they have the tinniest stand for essence and the last time I asked a girl in ULTA why they don’t add more essence products she just told me, that’s all we have!  🙁  Is just me? or sometimes these girls can be rude?  I hope essence line can work with ULTA and have a big display of products,

jenfehr1 says:

I recently picked up the essence blush in life’s a cherry and I had never tried anything from their line before and I love the blush! Blush tends to wear off rather quickly on my skin, but this one lasts really well! Great review! Love your videos! And congrats again on that little bundle of joy you’re carrying!

Marge Burkell says:

Great video Emily! Sounds like these blushes are winners!

Tatiana Jurkovicova says:

I have the color 10 “adorable” and i really like it, is good for my pale skin
