Twitch

Flesh Beauty Twitch Touch Flesh Highlighting Balm ($18.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a soft, light copper with warm, bronze undertones and fine, golden pearl. It had a pearly, luminous sheen on my skin that was slightly dewy. It had sheer coverage, as promised, which applied fairly evenly when I patted it onto my cheekbones. It was easiest to apply it over bare skin, but I didn’t notice too much lifting when I applied it over foundation. The consistency felt more balm-like with some slip and was a little wet and lightly tacky. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before it started to move around noticeably on my skin.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.13 oz. - $138.46 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "sheer luminous goodness" that is "blendable" and contains "conditioning oil" for a "lit-from-within glow." It has a more balm-like texture that had moderate slip and felt emollient on the skin without a full dry-down, but it stayed in place for seven to eight hours. The formula seemed to have sheer coverage, as de4scribed, that was fairly blendable on bare skin as well as over base products. I prefer to apply cream and liquid products like these with fingertips (easier to control and faster to blend without fear of contaminating the actual tube of product with foundation or primer).

Worth noting, the tube is very small and contains 0.13 oz. where a lot of mid-end and lower high-end cream highlighting products contain 0.25 oz.

I don’t know that I would buy from this brand because all the names are off-putting. I mean, Flesh is just not an appealing word, and then this shade is named Twitch? Twitching flesh? Ick.

Yeah, I totally understand – I’ve seen that sentiment expressed a lot on this brand/their products!

Totally agree! The name of the brand is super unsettling and I won’t even consider their products because of it. There are too many other options that would actively make me happy vs. make my skin crawl. Yeah, pass.

I’m imagining that if you got 7 ½ hours out of it, my oiler skin combined with my being outdoors as much as I am, I’d be very lucky to get 6 hours, at best. That, plus the smallish amount of product kills this for me.

For me, it’s not the exact names but I really dislike these 7-word long product names. Flesh Beauty…Okayyy…but what is “touch flesh highlighting balm” supposed to tell me that I wouldn’t get from just “highlighter” or “twitch highlighter”? Sometimes I feel they try too hard naming the formula and it ends up weird, too long, and/or confusing.

Is Flesh really Revlon? Someone/ some site told Muse that. I don’t find the names enticing, but ‘sexy’ sells. Even Mother (Pat) uses some questionable names. Snatch Lust? Really? I howled. I’d prefer nature inspired names, like RBR. But, you know they spent lots on focus groups, etc. to come up with the brand and shade names. And what plays well on social media? That’s where the inspo is these days. Do we think of the meaning of Orgasm? No, it’s Nars peachy pink. What m/u person thinks sex? No one! We get totally inured/ habituated to names. For better or for worse.

It’s a pretty shade, but somehow I think it’s more suited to winter than summer because of the finish – if you are already hot and the humidity is making your skin dewy, you wouldn’t reach for this product.
The name of the product is disappointing as well.

Linda Wells is the director of this brand which, I believe, is Revlon getting back into higher end cosmetics. (And yes, I am old enough to remember when Ultima II was sold in department stores and was considered a high end makeup).

I watch a great YouTube makeup channel called Beauty News and they were absolutely dying with laughter over some of the names in this brand! I can’t imagine what they were thinking when they came up with them!
