The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). It had nice color payoff that was easy to work with as the texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled without being dusty or too thin. The blush darkened just slightly against my bare skin, which isn’t uncommon with more matte blushes for me. I had no trouble blending and diffusing the color on the skin, and it didn’t make my skin look dry, though it is matte, so did look a little flat overall. It lasted for seven and a half hours before I noticed slight fading.

Another beautiful blush by MUG! I am really liking quite a few of these so far. One thing I wonder, though, is whether or not you’ve worn any of these over foundation after testing? And if so, did they still darken up like this?

I haven’t worn these over foundation – don’t really like them personally (like they’re not to my taste), so I haven’t reached for any on a non-testing day!
