For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Creme Caramel had buildable coverage from medium to fully opaque. The texture was smooth, velvety, and just creamy enough not to tug on the skin or lips when applied directly from the tube but was a bit less emollient compared to about half the range. It worked best as a cream blush when I tested it, as it emphasized and sunk into lip lines when worn as a lip product and creased like crazy as a cream eyeshadow.
On the cheeks, the color blended out beautifully on the skin, and it was easy to spread out the color without becoming uneven or patchy. I found it equally easy to apply on bare skin as well as over (liquid) foundation. The texture didn’t fully dry down, so it had a natural, skin-like sheen, but I didn’t have issues with it moving or settling over time. It wore well for eight and a half hours as a cream blush.
On the lips, it applied fairly evenly, though it wasn’t quite as even as the majority of the range. The texture, while comfortable, settled into lip lines early on and worsened over the four and a half hours the color lasted. It felt smooth going on, and it didn’t tug. The formula wasn’t drying nor was it hydrating.
On the eyes, the color applied well and blended out nicely with smooth, even coverage. The problem I had with it was how quickly it creased and pulled into lines on my lid, and while it did not seem to dry down, it also looked a little dry where it had creased (almost powdery).
Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.
