The Colorful Blush formula is supposed to be long-wearing, buildable, and have a lightweight texture. My experience with the formula has shown that they’re soft, lightly powdery at times (some are worse than others) with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that blends fairly well and lasts seven to eight hours. There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. Over the Moon had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a natural sheen that was noticeable without being shimmery. The texture was lightly powdery, thinner than other shades, but it didn’t look powdery on my skin, at least. It lasted for seven hours before there was noticeable fading. From what I can tell, this has since been discontinued, but I have heard you can still find it in some stores. As I had already tested it, I figured I might as well finish it up, but not to worry, it’s merely a bonus review for the day. It’s a shame it was discontinued, though, as a more budget-friendly option for a lavender-hued blush would have been quite welcome.
P.S. — This was the last of the Sephora blushes I had to review! All done 😀
