Fenty Beauty Cool Berry Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with cool undertones and a warmer, golden pearl throughout. It had a neat contrast to it with the cooler base an warmer shimmer, so the shimmer was more noticeable when applied to bare skin, just not in a skin-texture emphasizing kind of way.
It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable color payoff applied with fingertips, which was similar with a moderately-dense, angled brush but a touch sheerer. For true, sheer coverage, you'll want to use a very light hand (like a tap of one's finger) or a stippling brush. The formula seemed more pigmented initially, but it really does sheer out quite a bit when applied to the skin (as it was designed to do) and needs to be layered for fuller coverage. The product built up beautifully, though, and it never looked heavy or turned patchy with more product.
The consistency felt more like a gel-cream, so it spread easily over bare skin or on top of foundation. It blended out with ease, and though it dried down fully, it seemed to have a bit of dewiness to the finish. It wore well for nine hours before fading visibly on my skin.
