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 smooth, lightly shimmered and did emphasize pores just a bit, but it remained blendable and diffused easily along the edges for a seamless look on the skin. It had medium, buildable coverage–in line with the description–that didn’t feel like I had to cake it on to get color payoff but does require a layer or two if you want truer-to-pan color. When I tested it, this shade wore well for seven hours.
