Kiss of Copper
bareMinerals Kiss of Copper Gen Nude Blonzer Blush and Bronzer ($25.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and a lightly, metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, which was far from the buildable it was described as being! Those who don’t mind using a lighter hand or prefer higher coverage will enjoy that impact, though.
The texture was smooth, almost creamy to the touch, without being overly dense or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly on me.

The formula is supposed to have a "silky texture that blends seamlessly and builds color effortlessly" and is a combined blush and bronzer, in terms of effect. The texture was smooth, almost cream-like--dense and a little plush to the touch but not thick or difficult to pick up with a brush. It actually yielded more product on my brush than I expected, and it's not a formula I'd describe as buildable.
These were quite pigmented and a little went a long way, so you'll want to use a lighter hand and more feathery brush to pick up product for a true, buildable application of product. They applied evenly, blended out well, and were higher shine, though they didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. The formula stayed on well for eight to nine hours before fading visibly.
