The Baked Blush formula is supposed to be “buildable from sheer to vibrant” paired with a “silky” texture. Corallina has a soft, smooth consistency that is a little dusty but not really powdery or dry. The color blended out easily on the skin, and the shimmer wasn’t too large, so it didn’t emphasize pores and gave off a very luminous sheen. It had semi-sheer to opaque coverage, as described, and it was forgiving, as you could sheer it out or intensify it without it looking caked on or becoming splotchy. The blush wore for seven hours on me before fading slightly.
