Clay Too Much

Mented Cosmetics Clay Too Much Blush ($22.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, though the powder wasn’t too soft, so it was possible to use a lighter hand to achieve more buildable coverage if desired.

The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, but there was a dryness that pervaded it that I have found doesn’t seem to do well on my skin (there are a few other formulas, notably, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzers, that feel similar and have similar performance issues for me but not others). This was one of the more flattering shades between the brand’s bronzer and blush ranges but still emphasized the dryness/texture of my skin a bit and did not blend out fully along the edges. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$22.00 -

The formula is supposed to be "blendable, buildable" and "most importantly, pigmented." The color coverage was nearly opaque to opaque, but the texture was more forgiving--not so soft that it was difficult to pick up less product, but it definitely wasn't inherently buildable. If I used a less-dense brush, I had no trouble getting a sheerer level of coverage that I could build up or further blend out.

On my slightly drier skin (at least, at the time of testing), the formula wasn't as blendable or as flattering to wear as it seemed to emphasize dryness. The formula was easiest to apply and blend out over a more luminous base that was lightly set with translucent powder, but it wasn't ideal over a more matte foundation or over my bare skin. The blushes lasted seven to eight hours on my skin before showing fading.
