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. Mochi is a bold shade in the tube, but when wore at sheer to medium coverage, it looks more pink than it does red. In order to get true red color, it has to be worn at mostly opaque or fully opaque coverage. The texture was smooth, creamy, and blendable on all three areas it can be worn, but it performed the best as a lip color, then as a cheek color, and worst as an eyeshadow.
On my cheeks, it applied easily with fingertips, a brush, or dabbed on directly from the tube, though I preferred fingertips as the product melted and blended effortlessly with the warmth of my fingertips. It has more buildable coverage when applied with fingertips or a brush, but if you swiped it on directly from the tube, it would leave a rather opaque streak. The texture sat well on the skin and had a natural sheen, but it wasn’t glossy and didn’t move around during the day. The color lasted for ten hours on my cheeks.
On my lips, I applied it directly from the tube, and it was opaque in one stroke, though if I applied it using fingertips or a lip brush, it was sheerer. The consistency was smooth and sat well on the lips without emphasizing my natural texture or sinking into my lip lines. This shade wore for over six hours, wasn’t drying, and left a stain behind.
On my eyes, the color creased within minutes after I had applied it. The color didn’t adhere any better despite trying fingertips, brushes, sponges, and directly from the tube. The consistency is creamy and blendable, which made it easy to apply to the lid, but I just couldn’t get longevity out of it at all. It didn’t dry down or set, so it always remained blendable and moveable, and I’d even push the color back into place but it would crease again.
Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.
