Ciate Matchmaker Glow-To Illuminating Blush ($26.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly on the skin. The texture was smooth to the touch, firmer and denser but not difficult to use--the type of texture that doesn't kickup any excess product in the pan but still blends seamlessly on the skin. On me, the blush stayed true for eight and a half hours before fading.
The formula is supposed to have buildable pigmentation from "barely-there" color to "intense color" with long-wear. It had a smooth consistency with a firmer press, but it was not stiff or difficult to pickup color. From the four shades I purchased, the pigmentation varied from medium to semi-opaque, and they were certainly buildable to full coverage, though the formula itself was forgiving enough that the color could be sheered out as desired (and the powder was conducive to simply picking up less product as well). The swirled nature of the highlighter-and-blush concept did make the color vary a bit, and sometimes it appeared more shimmery than others (though the brand noted that each compact contains 50% of each).
