It’s a new, limited edition variation available for summer in a hefty, metal compact. It’s a multi-hued powder that includes white, pink, peach, and orange, but none of the parts are large, so the most practical way to use it is swirled together, which yielded that peachy-orange hue as swatched. The powder was finely-milled and smooth, but it was powdery and looked a little dry on the skin. It had medium coverage that was somewhat buildable, but it didn’t stick as well to skin, so I really had to pack it on to get enough to stay in place. I would recommend applying this over a cream blush or as a cream/liquid-based foundation was drying to maximize color payoff. It lasted for seven hours on me.
