On the Horizon

Colour Pop On the Horizon Pressed Powder Blush ($10.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a more semi-matte finish. It had buildable coverage from medium to mostly opaque, while the texture felt soft, yielding, and was lightly powdery in the pan but didn’t appear dry or powdery when applied to my skin.

The blush applied evenly and blended out without difficulty along the edges. There were visible gold sparkles on my cheeks that had more of a random pattern, so anyone who loathes “glittery” blushes will likely want to give this a miss–there were enough particles to actually translate. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.13 oz. - $76.92 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Not that I need this, I have 3 lovely dupes, but I DO love it. Again though, I have MAC Spring Flock, Nars Orgasm and Hourglass Surreal Effect, so I will pass
