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 a lightly dusty consistency, though very soft and finely-milled, that had a tendency to sheer out on the skin, so it was hard to achieve opaque coverage. It had more semi-sheer to medium pigmentation overall. Compared to the previous formulation, this version is just more matte and has a lot less dimension on the face. I didn’t have any trouble applying or blending out the blush, and it sat well on the skin. The color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear.
