The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic” with a “flattering radiance” and “silky texture.” The pigmentation ranges from semi-sheer to fully opaque, depending on technique and skin tone, but it seemed exactly as described–buildable–without having to pile it on or spend too long sheering it out. It had an extremely smooth, silky consistency that blended out beautifully on the skin while yielding a soft sheen that didn’t emphasize pores but added a lovely glow to the skin. On me, the blush lasted for eight hours before it started to fade.
