Caring Coral (02)
Huda Beauty Caring Coral (02) GloWish Cheeky Vegan Blush Powder ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a soft, satin sheen. It seemed to have less of a glow in its finish, even when blended out and diffused along the edges, compared to other shades in the range but was definitely more than matte.
It had nearly opaque color payoff in one layer, so I had to use a lighter hand to pick up less product for sheerer, more buildable coverage as marketed. The texture was smooth to the touch, soft without being powdery, and a little firmer/thinner but not in a way that impeded the application. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

The formula is supposed to have a "natural, fresh-faced flush of color and a soft-focus glow" that features a "super buildable" formula. The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and a little firm but not stiff to work with; the balance of firmness ensured that it wasn't powdery.
The pigmentation varied from shade to shade, and they were more high-medium to semi-opaque and buildable than a "silky wash." The lack of powderiness did make it easier to use a lighter hand to achieve truer, more buildable coverage if desired.
The blushes had a more satin-like finish, which became more luminous as they were buffed and blended out on my skin, and I didn't have any issues applying them on bare skin or over foundation. They wore between eight and nine hours on me before fading visibly.
