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. The texture was fairly smooth, blendable, and easy to apply the skin with a gentle sweeping and buffing motions using a moderately-dense brush. This one looked more high-shine when buffed and worked into the skin than initially swatched, though the high-shine seemed to do more to reflect and smooth out the skin’s surface than amplify the size of pores and the like. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage. The color started to fade after six and a half hours of wear, which was really the only downside!
