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 texture was dustier and more prone to sheering out than a lot of the other shades I’ve tested in the new formula. It had sheer to semi-sheer color payoff, and it didn’t seem to last as long–only six and a half hours–on me. The only bright spot on this product was that it was still blendable on the skin, but it might look drier on dry skin types.

Hmm, quite the departure from the other shades. Doesn’t look bad applied though, but the weartime sounds dismal and super disappointing. Skip.
