More is More

Colour Pop More is More Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warmer undertones and much warmer, golden shimmer throughout. This was one of the few (at least, at present!) shimmery shades in the blush range. It had rich pigmentation when applied directly from the tube, but it could easily be applied with fingertips or brushes for a sheerer, more buildable application. The texture was lightly creamy, emollient without being too slippery, and easy to work with as the product spread well over bare skin (or on top of foundation). It wore well for nine hours on me before I noticed any signs of fading/subtle movement.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.33 oz. - $24.24 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "blend effortlessly" with a "natural, skin-like finish" that can be layered or applied on bare skin. The brand recommends applying directly from the tube for heavier coverage and using a brush to pick up product for less coverage, though the coverage "easily builds colour to your heart's desire." They dry down to a semi-set finish--lightly dewy, definitely "natural, skin-like" in appearance, but not overly tacky or really wet-looking. I haven't found that they migrate or move around much, so the formula is still longer-wearing at seven to nine hours with minimal movement. They have applied well and worn well over foundation thus far, too. They are not transfer-proof but are transfer-resistant; they won't smear around with an inadvertent touch but aren't fully locked down.

The pigmentation varied a bit from shade to shade, but most shades were semi-opaque to fully opaque when applied directly from the tube in one "swipe" motion, though I think mimicking this on cheeks isn't quite as easily done as compared to my arm. I preferred picking up product on my fingertip, patting on the apple of my cheek and diffusing upward and outward, then using a clean fingertip to diffuse and soften the edges as needed. I appreciated that even the deeper hues didn't seem to "sink" into my pores and were as easy to apply and blend out as very light, more my-skin-but-better (literally, my skin!) hues. I would describe the formula was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque coverage possible, but there's enough slip in the formula that it starts to sheer out noticeably even when applied more heavily.

The consistency was lightly emollient, lightweight, and thin with good spreadability and movement; it didn't lift up base products but still worked well over bare skin. I didn't experience it lifting up or creating patchiness over time on top of foundation, even when I set the foundation initially, but I would recommend (same as I would for most cream-based cheek formulas!) to pair with a less-matte foundation for optimal results (the dewy finish plays well with a more skin-like base).

Oh, the caps have the names of the products, but the rest of the tube doesn't, so if you have more than one open, take care in getting the right lid back on!

Because this is the most perfect blush shade to put with a a bronzey look such as ND Tan & Glow as a pop of color on the cheeks, I am so getting this! It looks positively glowing and glorious applied. Just like summer!

Hey Christine, sorry not sure where to post this – will you cover the new Lisa Eldridge lipstick collection? Her first launch was asbsolutely spectacular. Those reds replaced all of my previous holdings in saturation, texture, presentation, longevity. Just curious your thoughts.

Hi Valerie,

We don’t want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don’t always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Maybe I should stay away from shimmery blushes at my age, but I really don’t care about such rules, especially when a blusher is as gorgeous as this one. I love it! I might just have to pay all the extras to get this. So pretty!

Another looker! And I’m positive I have a powder blush like this. Still … a really nice option for someone who doesn’t have a stash the size of a small Sephora.
