The Baked Blush-n-Brighten formula is supposed to be “smooth” and “long-wearing” with “a blend of rich, marbleized color.” It had really nice pigmentation that was nearly opaque with a very smooth, blendable texture, it was easy to apply less and build-up coverage as well, which made it a more versatile product overall. I find my favorite part about this range is when they’re as blendable as this shade, as they’re forgiving on the skin, easy to use, and have a great glow-y finish (without emphasizing pores) when all is said and done. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.

I’m very impressed with the quality of the swatch -lots of smooth, rich pigment but blends out well into a nice finish

This looks like a natural, glowy suntan!!!!
Love it, as I don’t lie out in the sun at all, and even though I am matched to MAC Pro Longwear in NC40 or Studio Sculpt in NC37, I really do not look all that dark or tanned. Just a medium olivey beigey tone? So this one would give me a nice glowing, sunkissed look, I think. (or hope?)
