For an in-depth look at what the formula is supposed to do and how it performs generally, please check the overview below the rating. Macaroon was fairly creamy, light-to-medium in weight, and smooth on the skin and lips. The color spread easily across the skin and blended out well on eyes, lips, and cheeks. It worked best as a cheek color, then as a lip color, and was worst as an eye color. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to fully opaque depending on application method.
On the cheeks, the color blended effortlessly without losing its color or tone. The texture was smooth and sat well on the skin with a soft, natural finish. While the product didn’t dry down fully (so it would transfer if you touched it), it didn’t move or migrate on the skin and lasted well for nine hours on me. On the lips, it didn’t tug or drag on the lips, but I had some color emphasize lip lines as some color pulled into them. It lasted for four and a half hours on the lips and was neither drying nor hydrating. On the eyes, I experienced creasing within minutes of applying the color, as the formula did not set or dry down.
Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.
