Papaya 1972 (Blush) is a light-medium orange with moderate, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer--so more pigmentation than anticipated--that could be built up to full coverage.
The texture was moderately powdery in the pan, so I'd recommend using a lighter hand to avoid kicking up too much excess powder. Despite the more powdery, drier feel, it actually applied beautifully to bare skin. It melded particularly well and looked seamless to the point where it nearly blended itself! This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.
