Formula Overview

$38.00/0.34 oz. – $111.76 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be “featherlight, long-wearing” that “build effortlessly from sheer to subversive.” The blushes are available in two finishes–demi-matte and satin pearl–and range from more muted to more vivid in color. The biggest “downfall” of the formula was that it was rather pigmented than buildable, so one could use a lighter hand to get more buildable coverage, but I found I had to use a light to moderate hand to ensure I didn’t over-apply each shade.

The consistency was smooth, silky, and lightly creamy to the touch; it was a touch powdery in the pan but had more slip than most powder blushes on the market, but it was definitely a powder-based formula. The product applied well to bare skin as well as over foundation, as it diffused well along the edges without picking up base products.

The satin pearl finish was luminous but not overtly shimmery, so it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. They wore around nine hours on me before fading visibly.
