LYS Beauty Passion Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream Blush Review & Swatches
LYS Beauty Passion Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream Blush ($16.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a rich raspberry with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could be applied with a lighter hand for more buildable coverage if preferred, but the formula was forgiving and easy to spread and diffuse for an even, sheerer layer of product (which is often how people wear blush).
The texture was lightly emollient but felt more powder-like–though still blendable and movable–on my skin. It worked nicely over foundation as well as over bare skin, as it didn’t emphasize skin texture or pores, while it wasn’t prone to lifting up base products either. The blush lasted well for nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.

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.

Wow! She bright! But I like her a lot!
This would be such a fun shade to wear at just one coat for me. Perfect for spring or whenever.
Is it just me, or is this sinking into pores? Probably going to have to pass for that reason. The ones on my cheeks are HUGE.
Nope, it didn’t sink into pores – I would have noted in the preview! The only thing I’m seeing is that the hyperpigmentation marks from acne is showing.
Gotcha, thanks for the reply!
