LYS Beauty Inspire Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream BlushLYS Beauty Inspire Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream Blush ($16.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a vivid, darker orange with moderate, warm undertones–well-balanced between red and yellow undertones paired with a satin finish. The product had a more matte finish but it retained enough sheen that it looked skin-like and wasn’t flat.

It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which was easy to blend out and diffuse for an even layer of product. I had no trouble sheering it out or simply using less, then building up the coverage where I needed/wanted it. The consistency was lightly emollient, thin, and spreadable without being too prone to sheering out, so I could retain the intensity and tone of the color with ease. It stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$16.00/0.23 oz. - $69.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high payoff" with a "satin-matte" finish that has a "natural flush." They were very pigmented but blendable and easy to control, so one could apply less and get sheerer, more buildable coverage, if preferred. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and had moderate slip but turned more powder-like--the "satin-matte" came through--as it was applied and blended out on my skin.

It didn't have a severe dry down, so it remained slightly movable as it dried down; it wasn't tacky or particularly dewy, so it seemed true to the "satin-matte" finish described (but wasn't so matte that it was dry or flat-looking on). They applied well over bare skin as well as over liquid foundation and set foundation. They wore between eight and eight and a half hours on me.
