This is definitely one of my new favorite powder blush formulas! Peach Pop was just as impressive as Ginger Pop. The texture is soft and blendable, but the smoothness of the color is extraordinary. It smooths and skims across the skin as if it were a cream blush, but it’s definitely a powder. If you want a sheer wash of color, it’s easily achieved by using a light tap of the brush into the pan, but it has good, true-to-pan color payoff that can be as intense or as soft as desired, as it blends out so effortlessly. The finish is lightly luminous, doesn’t emphasize pores, and looks like skin–never powdery. Peach Pop wore well for eight hours, and then it started to fade.
