The formula is described as a “luxurious powder blush” with “silky smooth application” that yields a “radiant glow” and a “delicate flush of color.” The latter seems to suggest a sheerer formulation. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a soft, powdery texture that seemed a little harder to blend out as it had a tendency to stick more heavily to some places than others. I would recommend lightly powdering with a setting or finishing powder prior to applying this, as it will tamp down any natural oiliness that’s on the skin or if you used cream/liquid foundation, your foundation. The color is absolutely gorgeous, but I really wish it easier to use! Once on, it has a satiny sheen that is both luminous and natural without emphasizing pores or the skin’s natural texture. It lasted for seven hours on me before starting to fade and breakdown.
