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. The texture of this shade was smooth, lightly velvety and creamy, so it had great blendability and was easy to spread across the skin without skipping or becoming patchy. It did seem slightly thinner compared to the majority of the shades I’ve tried, but it still performed similarly with longer wear on cheeks and lips, shorter wear on eyes. The coverage varied by application, as directly pressing the tube against the skin and making a swiping motion would leave a rich, opaque line while dabbing or patting from the tube was sheer and buildable. It is, overall, a medium, buildable coverage product.
When I applied it to my cheeks, the color diffused nicely along the edges and looked even without having to work hard. I had no trouble applying with fingertips or with synthetic brushes. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours as a blush.
On the lips, I applied it directly from the tube, and it yielded smooth, opaque pigmentation that sat fairly well on the lips, but some of the color settled into my lip lines within an hour and a half of wear. The formula felt comfortable, though, and lasted for four and a half hours.
As much as I’d love for this to be a true three-in-one product, the performance as a cream eyeshadow left much to be desired, because it creased within ten minutes of applying. Even if I smoothed the color back into place with my fingertip, it would migrate and separate in the crease/lines of my lid.
Please note, the rating is an average across performance on eyes, cheeks, and lips.
