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. This shade was a true matte, even when applied and blended down, so it may look too flat for some. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and thin, but it still blended out well on the skin and only darkened slightly (from the natural oils on the skin). This shade wore nicely for seven hours before fading on me.

Hmm, this is an interesting color for me, since I don’t think I’ve tried anything like it. I usually prefer my blushes to be brighter and more colorful, but this could look good for a soft, natural look

Even though this is matte and sheer, I like it kind of. I could see how it would work well especially for oiler skins or with very strategic highlighter application.

Ok, so obviously this wouldn’t show up on my medium olive skin tone, BUT I definitely see its potential on fairer skinned people than myself. It would make a lovely natural peachy blush on say, an NC15 or NW13 and lighter!

OH! OH! OH! Brainstorm! Lol they happen so rarely I get excited. Ok, so I was checking out shades for the Ulta sale and this blush layered with UD’s fireball highlight would be stunning….maybe….I just had the brainstorm but I bet it would be good. What do you think?
