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 nearly opaque pigmentation, so a little went a long way. If you tend to have a heavy-hand and prefer sheerer coverage, I’d look elsewhere, but if you love very pigmented, deep blushes, this one might appeal to you. The texture was fairly soft and blendable, but it could have been easier to diffuse and blend out on the cheeks; I found the best way to apply this was with a light hand to try and build it up as gradually as possible. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. As a note, this shade is much deeper and brighter (and not quite as blue-based) as it was in the original formulation.

I definitely see what you mean re: opacity. It’s unfortunate that the new formula seems harder to diffuse, but I do like the possibility that it may show up more clearly on a variety of darker skin tones.

The *perfect* pinky-fuchsia cheek color for a medium olive or tan complexion! Also works beautifully on yours, as well, Christine. I like this one better than my Colourpop Pie blush!
