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). Of the entire range, this was the most shimmery, though it was more moderate compared to how frosted/metallic a powder blush or highlighter can get, so it was still easy to wear and didn’t emphasize pores. It had a very soft, looser consistency; it didn’t feel like the shimmer (mostly gold) was as blended with the peach-pink base, so when I blended it out, I kept getting a much stronger pink coloring than when I looked at it in the pan or as a heavier swatch. It is still lighter overall than the same-named shade in the original formula. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before it started to break down.


PPermanent. $10.00.

I think the ‘look details’ are correct. This does not look like lorac pro 3 to me. It’s not exactly a hardship to click over to see what you’re wearing. It’d save you time not to put the look under the post. Esp since you just worked out how to get all your looks up and searchable. Gorgeous as always. Have the orig, so no need here. Pretty funny how shades change as you buff them out or blend them. I have to barely blend e/s like naked 1, or it makes a muddy mess. Browns, especially.

Very nice color! More pigmented applied to cheeks than arm swatches, so I think it would show up on me. It looks a lot like an Ipsy Bag item I received a few months back: Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Cheeks in Peachy-Pink. I usually use it as a topper over a matte blush just on the high points of my cheekbones, or in conjunction with a simpler bronzer look, for a peachy-pink gleam!

We’ve had quite few items from Elisabeth Mott in our Glossy Boxes. Once I got a liquid eyeliner with a bit of shimmer, that I really liked a lot. This month we got a makeup removal balm, I still have to try that one.
I am sure there’s been more from the brand in the boxes, but right now my brain is at about 25% capacity so I can’t recall what.
