The Luxe Color Blush formula is supposed to be a “silky” powder that is “long-lasting and fade-proof.” It had semi-opaque coverage that was easily sheered out if desired, and it could be layered for true-to-pan color (though it is a lighter shade, so it may not work for all skin tones). The texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable on the skin. It didn’t look cakey or powdery, despite being more matte. This one seemed the most matte out of the three I bought to review. I also noticed that this shade darkened one to two shades compared to the pan when I applied it to the skin. The blush stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading a bit.
