Lethal Cosmetics Corolline Magnetic Face Powder (Blush) ($14.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It wasn’t overtly shimmery, but it seemed to have a very subtle “sheen” that made it look more “natural matte” or skin-like when applied and blended out on my skin.
It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation, which seemed a little more intense than described, but the smooth, slightly firmer texture–though not stiff–made it easy to use a lighter hand for true, buildable coverage if desired. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

The formula is supposed to blend "effortlessly" and "build" to a "luminous matte" finish and "any intensity with ease." In general, they had medium, buildable coverage that easily built up to mostly opaque to opaque coverage.
Per the brand, they recommend "tapping" rather than swirling one's brush, which I'd agree with for picking up more buildable pigment--swirling or heavier motions could yield more opaque coverage in one go (which could be desired).
The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and not powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan, so the product picked up well with more feathery brushes as well as denser brushes.
As I applied the powder and buffed it into my skin, they had a more semi-matte to natural matte finish--not flat or dry but not overly shimmery either. They looked more "melted" on my skin, which gave them a better and more flattering finish applied. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading visibly.
