Physicians Formula Vintage Rouge Butter Blush ($12.99 for 0.26 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with three layers. The texture was velvety and soft to the touch with a smidgen of dustiness in the pan, but it blended out beautifully on my skin and sat well without looking dry or chalky. The blush was easy to work with and lasted for eight hours on me.

The formula is supposed to be "ultra-luxurious" and will "smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone, and deliver a gorgeous blushing glow." They are soft, smooth, and blendable with a silky texture that is easy to work with, though sometimes a denser brush is best to apply as the consistency is denser overall. The coverage is typically medium with some buildability, but the shades skew particularly light so they will be more suitable for lighter skin tones (and may not show up as well on me in reviews due to my coloring). The wear has been around eight hours on average for the formula. It has a heavy coconut-based scent that lingers and is noticeable on the face, not just in the pan.
