LYS Beauty Empower Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream BlushLYS Beauty Empower Higher Standard Satin Matte Cream Blush ($16.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could easily be built up to full coverage. The texture was yielding and forgiving, so I could use less product and still spread, blend, and diffuse the product for sheerer coverage as well.
It felt lightly creamy to the touch, lightweight and thin but not too thin, which helped it spread well over bare skin as well as layer over foundation without lifting it up. The formula felt more emollient initially but set to a more satin-like finish--no shimmer but skin-like and not flat--and remained slightly movable. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
