The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). It had very good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and finely-milled texture that blended out easily on the skin. This is a shade that is going to be best for fairer skin tones or for diffusing a more intense/deeper shade in a more ombre/gradient effect. It is more matte, but it didn’t read chalky on me, which was a pleasant surprise. The color wore well for eight hours on me.
