BUXOM Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blush ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a powder blush is supposed to have “12-hour wear” thanks to the “primer-infused” formulation that is supposed to “seamlessly blend” with a “luminous finish.” It is scented with a “subtle, beachy scent” (it smells a bit like coconut and suntan lotion… aptly described a”beach,” but wasn’t a scent I detected much on, though my sense of smell has been dulled down lately). Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation–and some where intensely pigmented to the point where the warning “use with a light hand” comes into play–with soft, finely-milled consistencies that were a little dusty in the pan.
The finish varied from satin to more pearlescent, and one shade has larger sparkles to it, so you’ll want to pay attention to the finish of a particular shade if you are particular about the level of shine/shimmer in your cheek colors. I noticed that most of the shades applied darker and richer on my skin, both my forearm as well as my cheeks, than they appeared in the pot. The blushes blended out well and lasted between nine and 11 hours on me–definitely a bit longer wearing than average. They looked smoother and were more forgiving of skin texture when worn on bare skin than the average powder blush, too.
