Clarins Graphic Expression Face & Blush Powder Palette ($35.00 for 0.30 oz.) is described as a series of “tinted powders,” and according to the brand, they’re applied “over entire face to softly highlight” and “the coral pink shade [can be applied] to cheeks to create a healthy-looking glow.”

The small stripe of coral-pink is very small–it’s just not practical to use sections of the palette but rather all the shades swirled together. When swirled together, the resulting shade is a soft, peachy-beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture incredibly soft, finely-milled, and silky.  MAC Love, Rihanna (LE, $25.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Bareness (LE, $25.00) is pinker. MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $25.00) is slightly darker, more shimmery. MAC Peaceful (LE, $24.00) is more orange. Dior Pink Glow Bronzer (LE) is warmer, darker. See comparison swatches.

On fairer complexions, I could see this working as a subtle, easy-going bronzer. On my medium complexion, I can get a light coloring on my cheeks if packed on, but otherwise it just helps to even out my skin tone. In the photo, I applied it all over lightly and then patted onto the apples of cheeks as a “blush.” It wore well for eight and a half hours, and it did seem to help prolong the wear of my foundation slightly (by about a half hour) as it was also applied all-over the face.

I looks very Pretty!but i guess I will skip this one.Wont show up on me as a blush and I do have enough setting powders for a lifetime!

That looks beautiful on your skin, Christine! Wow! I was like “It’s pretty but I don’t–” then I scrolled down to see it on your cheeks and now I want it LOL. Beautiful!

I’ve been curious about how this powder plays on a darker skin tone than mine. I’m pretty fair and really enjoy it. I can reach for this on most days and it just gives a nice warmth to my cheeks. I use it mostly as a blush while also using a darker bronzer like Too Faced Chocolate Soleil around the perimeter of my face. It’s polished without looking too made up.
