The method is meant to have “buildable protection” with a “trace” of dewiness that may be utilized with fingertips, sponge, or a duo fiber brush and is really useful to be utilized previous to powder merchandise. I struggled to use the method, and I attempted utilizing fingertips, sponges, and numerous brushes each over basis, below basis, over naked pores and skin, and even over powder (which is the alternative of what they are saying to do!).
For me, it appeared like the difficulty was that there was approach an excessive amount of slip within the product, so as an alternative of making use of and mixing out, the colour simply pushed round. It had the worst utility once I used fingertips to use, which I might apply by patting and urgent the colour (gently!) onto my cheeks and utilizing the sting of my fingertip to melt. That is my go-to technique with cream-based cheek colours, and it normally works, however I could not get the colour to remain and place.
I attempted utilizing a sponge, however the sponge appeared to soak up lots of the colour that it made it arduous to get detectable protection out of it. I discovered a stippling brush to work higher, and I gently flicked the comb in opposition to my cheeks to deposit shade, waited 10 seconds, after which tried to diffuse and even out the colour. This labored considerably and generally, nevertheless it didn’t all the time work, sadly, and when it did not, there was nearly no seen shade.
Because it appeared overly emollient, for almost all of my utility makes an attempt, I squeezed out product on the again of my hand, so I may swirl or decide up product because it had dried out a bit bit, however this didn’t assist a lot! The “greatest” technique I discovered was to softly dab the product onto my cheeks utilizing fingertips, let it sit for 5 to 10 seconds, then use an artificial brush to melt the perimeters with the gentlest contact and solely do every space as soon as, after which go away it alone and settle for regardless of the end result was.
It didn’t play effectively with the assorted base merchandise I attempted–a mixture of liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers, each set and unset–as it was susceptible to sliding them round or lifting them up. They had been higher over naked pores and skin, however they had been an actual problem to work with. They had been additionally not buildable in my expertise as this resulted within the first layer transferring round and lifting away from the principle space and leaving a raised fringe of product.
The consistency was very fluid to the purpose the place it felt runny; it might slide down the again of my hand with the help of gravity and accomplish that shortly. It took awhile to dry down, and it was considerably movable with gentle dewiness in its end however wasn’t cheesy. They lasted round six hours on me earlier than fading visibly.
