The powder blush formula is supposed to have "extreme color payoff that blends with ease." The brand goes as far as to state that "all is needed is one to two very light dips in your pan."
The blushes were very pigmented with a smooth, finely-milled texture that felt silky, thin but not clingy, and actually blended out quite well. If you're going to have an incredibly opaque formula, blendability is what saves it, and it was especially noticeable (and critical!) given that the finish of the range was matte. Pigmented, matte blushes can be hard to blend without putting on translucent/setting powder underneath, but these blended out well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation.
While pigmentation and opacity can be needed for certain shades to show up on deeper skin tones, these were definitely extremely pigmented as marketed--a very, very little could go a long way and still yield nearly opaque coverage. I would recommend these for people who are comfortable using more pigmented products, tend to layer their blush, or have no issues diffusing and going back in to soften color if necessary.
Most shades in the range lasted around nine hours before it seemed visibly faded with a few shades lasting longer or shorter.

This one really says “here comes my blush!”
WOW – talk about pigmented! I wish (shimmer lovin’ dame that I am) that this didn’t have a matte finish but since I have MAC Rosy Does It and I do like to shop “in person”, I guess I’m okay with not getting this stunner of a blush.
Not for me, I don’t think. But, how beautiful would this look on very deep or rich skintones that have redder undertones!
I thought this was a MAC blush review at first glance!
