Goa

Buxom Goa Wanderlust Primer-Infused Blush ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich berry with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation in one layer, though one needed the barest tap of one’s brush in the pan for a fair amount of coverage! The texture was smooth, soft without being too powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. The product applied intensely initially, but I was able to spread and diffuse the color outward with a nice, blended edge. It stayed on well for 10 hours before starting to fade a bit but had a good amount product still visible after 12 hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.13 oz. - $169.23 Per Ounce

The 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.

This is a bright one but really pretty. I have a lot of similar colours as pink/plum is my jam so not likely to try this one but after seeing them here on the blog and listening to Tara (Tarababyz) review I am definitely going to pick one up and give it a try.

Love it! But I’m pretty sure that this is close enough to the deepest shade in Nars Hot Tryst palette. I’m not home, so I cannot go check the name of that particular shade, so I’m flying by seat of my pants on that one!

What a lovely blusher. The colour is gorgeous and the pigmentation! Though I could see myself accidentally applying by far too much, having to redo the makeup 🙂
