This formula is supposed to have “just the right balance of color and light” that can be worn alone or “as a blush topper.” It seemed like it is supposed to be somewhere between sheerer like a highlighter and more pigmented like a blush (hence why it can also be layered), which is the best I can surmise from their marketing (there’s a lot of use of subtle as well, which at least indicates, to me, that they’re not saying it’s ultra pigmented). I noticed that layering is best with a very, very light hand and a feathery brush or else the original blush can get overshadowed, as the formula runs semi-opaque. Much like the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, a little can go a long way. Camellia had rich color payoff with a lightly dry, dusty texture that was soft and blendable, but it was harder to control so I found a smaller, more precise blush brush easier to avoid going overboard in application. It was just shy of emphasizing pores on me, and I think if I had layered it a bit more, I would have found it emphasizing. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading.
