The Baked Blush-n-Brighten formula is supposed to be “smooth” and “long-wearing” with “a blend of rich, marbleized color.” It had semi-opaque coverage that was fairly buildable, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable, though it was a little loose/dusty (as many baked formulas are) but did not look dry or dusty applied to the skin. The color diffused nicely, while the shimmery finish yielded a luminous glow but not an overt shimmer nor did it emphasize the skin’s natural texture or the look of pores. On me, it lasted for just over seven and a half hours.

Oooh, I really like it! And the stunning makeup look you put together with it!
I’ll likely still aim for Pink Grapefruit, even though I like this one too.

That is gorgeous on you! It’s one of my favorite summer blushes too (I top it with Tropical Hues a bit higher on the cheekbone)
