The Color Source Buildable Blush formula is supposed to offer–you guessed it–buildable color coverage with a “silky-smooth” consistency available in matte and satin finishes. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque (one to three layers, respectively) that was easily blended and diffused on the skin with little effort. The powder’s texture was silky-smooth, thinner but not dusty or powdery. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

Oh this is pretty! I was eyeing UD TMI, but might be too dark, think this one will work better for me, a classic plum color that will go well with many of my lippies

Oooh, I really like Chroma a lot!!! It looks the way I had hoped some of its dupes would have, like Kiko Light Plum. Goes on wishlist, but competing with UD TMI for 1st place!

This is a fun shade! I just received TMI..Yay! This seems a bit pinker than it and New Lowes. So, I may look out for a sale one day..:)

Another good one. I need to up my blush stash. Unfortunately, the only ones I ever remember I want are Chanel and Hourglass, then I look at my wallet and cry.

I’m so happy about this! I love the color and it’s $4 cheaper than the UD dupe, although that UD line is one of my faves… I will have to pick this up soon! Great summer color for a tan.
