Kaja Beauty Atmosphere Mochi Pop Bouncy Blendable Blush Reviews & Swatches

Atmosphere

Kaja Atmosphere Mochi Pop Bouncy Blendable BlushKaja Atmosphere Mochi Pop Bouncy Blendable Blush ($19.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium coral with warm undertones that leaned slightly pink paired with a faint, satiny sheen. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque, while the texture felt smooth to the touch with the slightest sense of slip/wetness (as it is a hybrid “powder-gel” formula).

The blush applied well over bare skin with fingertips, as recommended by the brand, and well over liquid foundation but lifted up foundation that had been set with powder. It was very quick to turn to a powder-like finish–pretty much as soon as it hit my fingertip–and was a thinner formula, too, which isn’t quite as forgiving to work with than something with more substance. On my skin, it wore well for eight hours before I noticed fading.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.15 oz. - $126.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "powder-gel" base that "feels like a cream and finishes like a powder" that provides a buildable "pop of color" and can be worn "on bare skin or over makeup." The pigmentation varied from shade to shade but was typically more medium, buildable in coverage and often depended on just how much product was picked up on fingertips (brand says to use fingertips to apply). The texture felt lightly emollient in the pot but was more powder than gel by touch as well as in practice (on cheeks).

It applied well over bare skin and was fairly forgiving over base products, but I would be careful about applying it over any matte or more powdered bases as I did feel like it created slight patchiness when applied over set foundation. The formula felt more powder-like but on the thinner side (which is why I don't think it played as well with more powdered surfaces). They lasted between seven and eight hours before fading noticeably on my skin.

Thank you for reviewing this line up! I have been quite curious bc I can tolerate these ingredients whereas I can’t with most cream blush formulas out there. It’s not quite what I was hoping for: (want a long lasting cream/liquid blush for tropical weather) so money saved!

I got this and loved the idea. No powdery finish and that it won’t lift liquid foundation. This looks great on you, but I preferred something more pink, like the color Dainty from MAC. This color didn’t work for me, but I hope they make more colors. Love any non-powdery product.

I have to admit I struggle with these gel hybrid type products – they’re either much firmer than a powder product and require a particular type of brush to actually pick up product and apply smoothly or they’re “wet” and need to be applied before setting powder or they go streaky or pill up and as someone who has a particular routine and method of applying products because I need to do certain tasks with my glasses on or off, I just find easier to stick with what I know works…

The packaging is cute though!

I don’t LOVE using my fingers, honestly, but I can appreciate they have included those specific instructions on the container 🙂

I just get a bit frustrated when I have to have a particular type of brush (OK, several!) for blush and then have to try and remember which ones to use for the “hard press” ones like NARS Hot Tryst and CT Lovegasm and which ones to use for gel/creams, etc and when I have to use my fingers so with my current stress levels and time management in the mornings, it’s sometimes too much like hard work when I’m standing in the bathroom with my glasses off, unable to see and trying to figure out which brush or not to pick up, so eeehhhhhhh. 😀

It’s me, not you! 😉

I love makeup and I truly appreciate everything you do!!!
But sometimes I just want things that make my life easier at 7am, y’know?

Ahh, gotcha! I thought fingertips -> gel/cream might be easier, mostly because I know when I have to look for a particular type of brush… I have to look for it and then hope it is clean… LOL.

I have this one and I like it. I apply it with a brush and I didn’t notice any movement of my foundation or powder, but with a brush it does take a bit more of building up to show the color on my skin tone, but it’s a nice soft everyday color which I enjoy.

Atmosphere is a very nice shade, especially for “everyday”. However, there are dupes listed with better looking swatches and higher grades. So, for a shade that I’d be likely using often, I would rather have one of those Instead.
