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. Plumberry was incredibly pigmented with full color coverage easily achieved if desired, which means it’s a good idea to use a lighter hand and/or feathery brush if you want sheerer coverage. The texture has a smooth, dense feel to it where the color applies and blends out easily while feeling lightweight. There’s a subtle sheen to the finish that doesn’t translate into overt shimmer, and it doesn’t emphasize pores. On my skin, the blush wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.
