The TruBlend Blush formula is supposed to be blendable and create a “multi-toned result.” It had good color payoff with a smooth, blendable, but rather dusty, consistency that was prone to sheering out on the skin. It’s the type of formula that actually works best patted on with a damp brush or over still-drying liquid/cream foundation for better hold and coverage. This blush lasted for six and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.
