Smashbox O-Glow???

http://www.sephora.com/browse/produc...dPaginate=true

Has anyone tried this?
I'm dying to know if it's half as good as it sounds or if it's just a bunch of hooey.

I'm going on vacation tomorrow and was thinking of getting a gel-blush since I'm paring my makeup routine down so much. (I feel like a long as I have a little blush I can get away with a lot more.) The O-Glow looked good but I'm also open to other suggestions.
Thanks gals!!!

a net-friend gave it this review on another web site:

"Smashbox O-Glow is a transparent matte, gel. It is the texture of MAC Matte. When you apply it to your skin, it turns a rosy pink. It is a really translucent, flushed pink. The finish isn't creamy. It is more matte, but doesn't look dry at all.

This is such a unique product. I think it works quite well. One thing I noticed though is that it is best to apply it to your finger first for application to the cheek. You should move it around and blend it out quickly. It can sometimes leave a stain mark if you don't move it quickly. I feel like a mad scientist watching the colour change.

Overall, I like it. It really does look like a natural blush. I would be curious to see what this product does on a woman of colour."

I have too and I like it. I agree with what rouquinne said - you have to move quickly with it.

Thanks, guys. Very helpful. When I use regular gel blush I tend to have to blend it fast too, so I don't get little spots of stain.

The only thing I've found that helps is applying it while my moisturizer/sunscreen is still a little dewy. I wonder if doing this would keep O-Glow from working properly??? (If the moisturizer was too occlusive?)

i liked it when i tried it but i wonder how it will work over studio fix foundation. i tried it on bare skin and liked it. if it works on foundation let me know. i liked the color on me especially since i'm not normally a blush girl.

So does it work by irritating the skin, causing blood to rush there? That's what it sounds like to me.

I tried Peachy Keen by MAC and it looked awful on me. I think I need something that's more of a pink...

this is from the Smashbox site:

When applied, your skin's moisture activates the innovative formula producing a rosy blush that lasts all day. The unique Goji Berry-C Complex™ creates a microcirculatory, skin-energizing effect, while antioxidants like vitamin C, pomegranate seed oil and marine plankton provide additional healthy-skin benefits.

here's the ingredient list:

Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Isononyl Isononanoate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Punica Granatum, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Polysilicone-11, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Plankton Extract, Red 27 (CI 45410).
