It’s incredibly rich in color payoff–there’s no shortage of pigmentation in this shade–but the lightly creamy, dense, and buttery consistency of the gel-powder formula makes it a lot easier to use. It really does feel like it has some of the blendability found in creams but with the more forgiving evenness of powders. The finish has a noticeable sheen that doesn’t look frosted on the skin and gives off a gleaming glow that doesn’t emphasize pores. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. I had light staining on my arm from swatching this that was gone after a few hours, but I didn’t notice any staining on cheeks after wearing it.
