This is one of five new blush shades being added to the permanent range, but worth noting is that they are being added as a Small Powder Blush (the same size as MAC’s eyeshadows). I’m not sure if it will be available in pan-form or not (my guess is yes, since it is permanent) at this time. The formula is the same as their regular Powder Blush range, though, other than the size (and price). The new five are supposed to be pigmented with an even, smooth texture. Saucy Miss had good pigmentation–not quite as intense as the other shades but still packs a punch of color–with a very thin texture that was fairly blendable but does need some extra care and love to manipulate into an evenly, gradually diffuse blush color. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

I already have CP Pie and Homie, so I can skip, but love the color! So pretty. It’s kind of strange they made it same size as shadows, as I imagine it would be easier to get a brush in if the pan was larger

I feel like it’s an attempt to make them appear more like eyeshadows – if you put the new blushes and the new eyeshadows together, you’ll get a full rainbow of colors.

They work, I think, primarily because you don’t need to do much to swirl and get pigment since they go a long way. I think it’s to make them appear more like eyeshadows, rather than blushes.

Very, very pretty shade! I love it! The only issue I have is, how does one get a blush brush into that small of a pan?

I didn’t notice any difficult myself, but I think a lot of that is due to not needing very much product on the blush (the barest tap).

That’s just silly to me that they would bring on permanent blush shades the size of an eyeshadow when all the other shades in the range are full sized…?

Color me confused! Lol

This looks almost scary in the pan but applies as a much nicer colour than I expected. Still kinda intense but I guess you do that so we can really see the shade (rather than sheering it out).
