It is speculated to have a “buildable wash of shade” with long-wear and a “cushiony formulation” that “melts” onto pores and skin for a “pure end.” Whereas it regarded firmer within the raised domed pan, it was instantly emollient to the touch–creamy, easy, and light-weight, and sure, balm-like.
The shades tended to have extra medium to semi-opaque, buildable protection that have been extra inclined to sheer out when utilized to pores and skin, so it was finest to use one layer, let it dry down a bit, after which apply one other layer if seeking to construct up protection. It felt extra like a powder-like product as soon as it was utilized to my pores and skin because it dried down fairly shortly, although it wasn’t unmoveable.
The blushes utilized properly utilizing a fingertip to choose up and pat on shade, although I discovered that the formulation typically lifted up extra matte foundations, so I’d advocate pairing it with sheerer-coverage basis (or tinted moisturizer) or with a satin or natural-finish basis (and earlier than powdering).
Most shades lasted round eight hours on me earlier than fading visibly.
