Pretty wild claims, huh? I'm not quite sure if the "technology" actually makes the blush adapt to different skin tones, but I did notice that mine definitely got peachier once applied to my skin. From what I've seen in other reviews and pictures, it did get rosier on some an peachier on others. My skin tone is warm, so it does make sense that the peachier undertones be more pronounced.

I find the compact rather large and it will deter me from bringing it with me on vacation. I personally find that Physician's Formula packaging isn't all that travel friendly and rather large and bulky. I would love to see a sleeker compact in the future. Yes, there is an "LED" light. Will I ever turn it on? Probably not. There also is a bottom compartment under the blush with a little brush that I quite frankly haven't and most likely will never use.
Here is a picture of yours truly wearing it on my cheeks and another picture of my blowdry (I am so proud of how it came out haha):
All in all, I would recommend you check this blush out because like most Physician's Formula products, you get great quality without shelling out big money... especially if you manage to get that rebate! Have you tried the blush yet? Has it changed based on your coloring? How do you like it? Make sure to comment below!
