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). The color payoff was buildable from medium to semi-opaque coverage, and the color did darken slightly once I applied to my bare skin. In the reformulation, the color got lighter and has less pink in it compared to the original shade. The consistency was soft, but it was dusty enough to kick up quite a bit of powder in the pan and looked a smidgen dry applied to the skin, even though it was easily blended out. On me, it wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

I love this color of blush but the dryness on the skin is a deal breaker for me. My skin is already dry and adding a dusty blush just isn’t attractive. Thank you for the review.

I hear you, Deborah! The satiny finish of the older formula was more flattering (on more skin types).

This one doesn’t impress me the way the other MUG blushes that you’ve just recently reviewed have. It just seems too dry looking and the shade itself is too genericly “drugstore-ish”.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
