Melt Cosmetics Fire Fury Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich, deeper plum with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was incredibly smooth, almost cream-like, with a denser consistency that wasn’t too firmly pressed in the pan, so it was still yielding enough to be used with a lighter hand for lighter coverage. It had rich color coverage in a single layer where a little went a long way, but thankfully, it was very blendable and easy to work with. The only downside is that it is marketed as a more buildable formula, which it definitely wasn’t! It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

The formula is supposed to be buildable and can be worn alone or layered with other blushes. I'd consider it a more pigmented blush formula; a few shades are soft and yielding enough to be used with a lighter hand or less-dense brush for sheerer, more buildable application, but most shades were semi-opaque to opaque in one layer. The texture ranged from smooth, lightly creamy to soft and slightly powdery (though finely-milled and silky to the touch!). They blended out fairly well, though a few shades could have been more blendable, and most shades lasted between seven and eight hours on me.
