The formula is described as having vivid and “translucent, vibrant color” with a “flirty, natural-looking flush” that goes on “like a powder but feels like a cream.” They have a very similar texture as the Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminators I reviewed earlier this year, which I totally fell in love with. The texture has a smooth, denser feel to it that has good color payoff that’s incredibly easy to blend out on the skin. The pigmentation varies from shade to shade, but they are generally quite pigmented. Cantaloupe had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a luminous sheen; there was subtle shimmer but it wasn’t detectable on the skin. This particular shade is more suitable for fairer complexions, as the lighter color is too similar to my natural skin tone to be visible other than as more of a highlighter/sheen. It has a really smooth, blendable texture that sat well on the skin without emphasizing its natural texture. On me, the color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading.
