It’s a new, limited edition powder that’s supposed to provide “natural, healthy-looking color” that “highlights” with a “nondrying, non-dusty formula [that] is long-wearing and color true.” The texture was soft but not as smooth as you’d expect, as it had a fair amount of sparkle/micro-glitter in it, and the baked formula yielded a looser consistency so that powder didn’t bind together as well. Some of the sparkle translates onto the skin, and it is visible sparkle, but a lot of it seems to get lost during application (swept away, trapped in the brush, etc.), which leaves behind a noticeable, more shimmery sheen. On me, it very slightly emphasized pores. The color payoff was semi-opaque, moderately buildable. It lasted for seven hours on me before it started breakdown and look patchy.
