ILIA Temptation Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment ($32.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with soft, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was like a creamier gel, so it spread well over bare skin and wasn’t prone to lifting up base products when used as a cheek products.
It could have been a little more blendable, as I did find the product spread almost too easily at times, and it worked better with less and then building up just where I needed (or wanted) extra coverage. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation–to semi-opaque with two to three layers–that wore well for seven hours as a cheek product.
As a lip product, it was thin, a little clingy, and noticeably tacky, so it wasn’t as comfortable as desired. It emphasized and clung to imperfections, while the product lasted for two hours as a lip tint.

It's supposed to have "buildable" coverage that could be worn as a "wash of color" or built up to "richer, bolder payoff." It can be used on cheeks as well as lips. The consistency has a smooth, liquid-cream consistency--much more spreadable and more emollient than a potted cream blush but a bit denser and more substantial than a true liquid blush. On my lips, it had a thinner, clingier consistency and moderate tackiness. The coverage was sheer to medium (depending on how much product was applied or with what tool) and could be built up somewhat but was difficult to get much beyond medium.
The shades I tried spread out and blended out nicely on my cheeks without emphasizing my skin texture or lifting foundation, and they dried down for the most part. As a lip product, the color went on fairly well, but the lighter shade was more prone to settling into my lip lines while the deeper shade went on more flatteringly. As a cheek color, they lasted six to seven hours, and as a lip product, they lasted between two and three hours and were non-drying.
It had a sweet, vanilla scent, and there was a bit of a tingle on my skin when I used it as a cheek color but not something I noticed on my lips.
