This blush has really intense pigmentation, so on fairer complexions: a little goes a long way; and on deeper complexions: you’ll have no problem getting this to show up. It had a soft, finely-milled texture that made it easier to blend out the color, which is absolutely critical when you have a shade this pigmented. There was some excess powder that kicked up when I touched the brush to the blush, but I didn’t see that translate to powderiness on the skin. Mata Hari wore for eight hours well on me, and by the ninth hour, there was some noticeable fading.

Behind-the-Series: It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison. Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more. When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review so you can read more about the quality, wear, etc. of a particular eyeliner. If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link. Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description. You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.
