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). This was one of the more “shimmery” shades in the new range, which has more of a satin-level of shimmer/sheen. It was nicely pigmented and yielded opaque results, if desired, but it was still soft and silky enough to easily diffuse and blend out if you wanted sheerer coverage. The finish was natural–it looked like skin–but not overtly shimmery. When I tested this blush, it wore well for eight and a half hours before visibly fading.

I like it~ Surprisingly given my ginormous Joues stash, I do not have Chanel Malice.. it’s one of those shades that has been on my nice to have for quite some time, but just haven’t put the pin in. This would look far more natural flush like on my summer skin than most corals.

Like! ‘Coral red’ is my best tone for blush, and it’s very pretty in your photos. I’ve not gotten any MakeUp Geek yet…I think it’s time.

Absolutely just fell in love with this particular MUG Blush!!! Lately, I seem to have a ‘thing’ for natural, skin like, yet glowy blushes. This one delivers that at far less than its dupes, one of which has been on my wishlist for quite some time: MAC Gleeful.
