The scent: No scent
Application: I warm up the product with my ring finger by directly rubbing it. I lightly dab the product on my finger onto my cheeks.

Thoughts / Results:
Because I bought this at the warehouse sale, it doesn't come in a paper boxed packaging. Personally, I prefer this cream stick packaging over the typical sleek compact case. The packaging or the product itself doesn't get messy over time.
Because this is a cream product and for individuals like myself who uses foundation to achieve a uniform complexion, the blush doesn't dry completely on top of liquid or cream foundation. It's the foundation that causes the sticky, non-drying feel. Applying pressed powder to set my foundation will only make my cheeks appear cakey.
I've experimented with the multiple to test its lasting power:
1. Primer + liquid foundation + The Multiple = Blush didn't last 6 hours
2. Primer + liquid foundation + The Multiple + Powder Blush = Lasted at least 8 hours and was wearing off
I suspect if this cream blush were to apply directly on skin with no foundation, it would last a long time as well.
Overall, the colour itself is very nice. The quality of the product is good. It applies sheer, very easy to blend and has a relatively lasting power.
