Melt Cosmetics Cali Dream is a moderately warm-toned, medium orange with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
Melt Cosmetics Cali Dream Blush ($22.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a pop of medium orange with warm undertones that leaned slightly pinker but still more orange than coral. The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled so that it felt quite silky to the touch, but it was moderately powdery in the pan and was easy to over-apply as a result. It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, though it was marketed as buildable, so that was a "miss" (it might be a deal-breaker for some or a happy surprise for others!). The blush applied evenly and blended out easily along the edges. It wore well for eight hours on my skin before showing signs of wear.
