This formula is supposed to have “just the right balance of color and light” that can be worn alone or “as a blush topper.” It seemed like it is supposed to be somewhere between sheerer like a highlighter and more pigmented like a blush (hence why it can also be layered), which is the best I can surmise from their marketing (there’s a lot of use of subtle as well, which at least indicates, to me, that they’re not saying it’s ultra pigmented). I noticed that layering is best with a very, very light hand and a feathery brush or else the original blush can get overshadowed, as the formula runs semi-opaque. Much like the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, a little can go a long way. Blushed Copper was released before as part of their regular highlighter range and again in the Champagne Glow palette. The color is exactly the same here, but it seemed slightly less pigmented and perhaps, a little less metallic. The blush version had good color payoff with a soft, lightly dry but blendable texture that emphasized pores just slightly on me. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me.
