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). This is one of the new shades, so there’s no worries about how it compares to a past iteration! The consistency is very soft and smooth, though it kicks up some extra powder when used, but luckily, it didn’t look dry or totally flat on the skin. It had a very, very subtle sheen to it–enough that it looked natural but still more matte than satin applied. It was easy to blend and diffuse the color without losing intensity. On me, the blush wore well for eight hours.

Whittle the list w/ Christine’s swatches and dupes. Think I’m only doing 3 blushes & 2 shadows, thanks to C’s reviews. (Just having trust in some of the blush, 2nd to not reviewed yet.)

You are very welcome. Had to use the ‘real’ computer, as the coupon code entry spot did not show up on my iPad. Had triplicates on the cart. Decided to add an orange Z. Got puppy love, soulmate, love letter, graphite, and typhoon. When you use T resources, you know you will not be disappointed. Thanks a billion. If not for you, I could have bought a ton of mediocre shades that sounded great and would have been lackluster. You ARE the queen.

That pink has some extra wattage! Much more lively and bright than the pan fully let on. But I love it. Deeper than MAC Pink Swoon, but not as crazy ad Colourpop Pie, either. Nice balance!
