Natasha Denona Tan Puff Paint Liquid Blush Serum ($22.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a darker peach with warm undertones tempered and muted with hints of brown paired with a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer to medium color payoff initially, which could be built up (as marketed) or sheered out further if desired.
The texture was lightweight, thin, and almost like a very watery gel, as it glided well over my skin while depositing an even layer of product. It worked well over bare skin as well as layered on top of foundation, as it didn’t disturb my base products. It dried down for the most part, but it still had a natural finish to it–skin-like and glowing but not dewy. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

The formula is supposed to be "mistake-proof" with "easy and even blending" that is "buildable" and "can be layered" for greater coverage. Per the brand, it can be applied with a "fluffy brush or using your fingers." The pigmentation was semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage that was easy to work with using a stippling brush or fingertips.
I prefer applying liquid and cream-based formulas with a fingertip and often use one finger (like my index) for initial tapping of color onto the area, and then my middle or ring finger to blend and diffuse. The formula worked well on bare skin as well as over foundation, as it glided on, blended out well, but wasn't prone to lifting up base products or "sinking" into my pores.
The texture was lightweight, thin, and spreadable without becoming patchy. It dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish, but it retained a natural sheen to it that looked like hydrated, glowing skin (but not dewy). They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading a bit.
