The texture of the blush was incredibly soft, smooth, and lightly buttery. I’ve been most impressed by the consistency of the Makeup Geek blush formula, because it is silky and finely-milled but doesn’t turn powdery. There’s such a fine line between soft and powdery, but they get it right with Bliss. It had good color payoff that was buildable and blendable, so you can get nearly true-to-pan intensity or a sheer wash of color if desired. This shade wore well for almost nine hours on me before starting to show signs of fading along the edges.
