Wayfarer

ColourPop Wayfarer Pressed Powder Blush ($10.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light orange with warmer, yellow undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a more satin finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage–which it was supposed to have!–that had a moderately powdery consistency in the pan, though it felt more finely-milled and softer than it appeared swatched.

The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges with a few random micro-sparkles that were visible. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.13 oz. - $92.31 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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. 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!

I had a Stila blush ~15 years ago that looked a lot like this and I loved it. I remember not liking how yellow-toned the orange was in the pan, but it just worked when it was on. Looks like this may be the same idea, at least judging from how pretty it looks on you!

Not the right shade for me. I have been off ColourPop lately. I thought that with them not releasing new products for awhile, that I would be ready to snap up things when they started but so far I have been unimpressed. Not really sure what I am looking for but feel like I will know it when I see it, LOL!! I really want to invest in a unique eye shadow palette but nothing has spoken to me yet.

i just received this in the mail and i think it’s a dupe for the long-gone original Benefit Georgia Peach. I no longer have Georgia to be entirely sure. WF has a touch more orange and a little shimmer though.
