The formula is supposed to give “natural looking color” with buildable coverage that wears “all day.” It’s a baked powder, so the texture is drier and looser as a brush passes over the pan, but it doesn’t look dry, powdery, or dusty applied to my skin, which is normal-to-dry. Of the three shades in the range, this had the driest, loosest texture that was almost a little grainy (possibly due to the larger shimmer). It didn’t blend as easily as the other shades either, which was a disappointment. It does, eventually, diffuse enough to be acceptable with some extra effort. It had medium, buildable coverage with enough sheen that it did emphasize pores just slightly on my skin. I noticed fading occur after seven hours of wear.
