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). While it is part of the blush range, it could also be used as a bronzer, as it will (obviously!) add warmth to the skin. The texture was finely-milled with a silky, smooth feel to the touch, which translated into easier application and blending on the skin. It had excellent pigmentation, but that softer consistency made it versatile and more buildable depending on how much you applied. The reformulated version is slightly darker and richer than the original shade. The blush wore well for just over eight hours on me when I tried it out.

Well, don’t I feel like a dodo bird, working my way backwards! As a direct result, I read, ooh-ed & ah-ed over the Clinique Amber Glow, and commented on it BEFORE seeing this!
This one has a more matte finish, but has the same warmer bronzey look to it that is so lovely on med. light thru dark tan tones that run warmer. And much cheaper, too!
