This formula is supposed to have “just the right balance of color and light” that can be worn alone or “as a blush topper.” It seemed like it is supposed to be somewhere between sheerer like a highlighter and more pigmented like a blush (hence why it can also be layered), which is the best I can surmise from their marketing (there’s a lot of use of subtle as well, which at least indicates, to me, that they’re not saying it’s ultra pigmented).
I noticed that layering is best with a very, very light hand and a feathery brush or else the original blush can get overshadowed, as the formula runs semi-opaque. Much like the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, a little can go a long way. Most of the shades I tested lasted around eight hours on me.

Snapdragon looks a little scary in the pan, but on the cheeks it gives a natural flush. The base pink color is sheer so when applied to the cheeks it looks like a light wash. The luinous quality isn't sparkly or glittery, but looks like healthy skin. It is a funtional dupe for a lot of other blushes, but I like it because the base isn't too strong on intial application and can be built up tp a more pigmented cololr. The blush is blendable and easy to apply.

A great red orange toned blush from becca. I was afraid this blush was going to be garish on my fair skin and with a light hand it looks beautiful. I am sure it would look great on medium to deep skin tones. The blush has shimmer in it so if you prefer a matte blush, pass on this. I think this color is being discontinued so if you see it and want it, pick it up. My only complaint is that it is very similar to the orange blush in the Becca x Malika Face Palette (which I also own) so if you own that color you won't need Becca's Tigerlily.
