Pretty in Peony is the second of the two It Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Powders that I got to try out, thanks to the folks at It Cosmetics.  As with most of the It Cosmetics products I have tried out so far, the packaging on this product is fabulous - a rubberized, sleek black compact that opens to reveal a blush on one side and a mirror on the other.  Yes, it might be a dust magnet in a while, but I store most products in the original cover (I am a carton hoarder :P) so haven't had that issue so far.  Moving on to the product itself, Pretty in Peony is a lovely peach-pink shade with a very fine golden sheen to it.  The sheen comes from very, very finely milled shimmer, and in fact, with blending, the shimmer/sheen is almost nonexistent.  The color is very, very pigmented, and I need only the slightest bit of product for it to show up even on my darker skin.  Thankfully, though, the blush is also very easy to blend!  Scroll on for more photos.

On my skin, the color shows up as a brighter pink-peach - more pink than peach, while in the pan I think this has more peach tones, probably due to the golden sheen.  As I mentioned earlier, I need to use a very light touch, picking up the slightest amount of product on my brush, to get a generous flush of color.   The color is easy to blend, but it is definitely easy to go overboard with, and I find it much easier to use a separate clean brush to do the blending!  Here's how the blush looks on me:

Overall, the It Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush - Pretty in Peony - is a generously pigmented peach-pink shade that would be a perfect pick for anyone who likes a more vibrant blush.  It Cosmetics refers to this as a "powder blush stain," and I would have to agree with that description.  The staying power on this blush is AMAZING, and even with swatches on my hand, it sticks to the skin with the tenacity of a stain!  The sheen/shimmer in this is barely visible on my face, but it does prevent the blush from looking too flat or dull.
