Valiant is a light, peachy beige with warm undertones and a fine pearl finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff that applied evenly to my cheeks. It seemed less buildable on my lips compared to when I tried it as a blush, though. The consistency was creamy, emollient without being greasy or tacky, and was blendable on the skin. It wore well for seven hours on my cheeks and three hours on my lips (but it was drying).
