Melt Cosmetics Gamma Ray #1 is a moderately warm-toned, very light peach with a frost finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.13 oz.
Gamma Ray #1 is a pale, pink-peach with a golden shimmer and sparkle to it. It didn't seem so bad when initially swatched; a little heavier, thicker, and almost overly emollient, but applied to my skin, it was chunky. It didn't diffuse or blend well as the powder moved and clumped up on itself and left behind bald patches and areas that were thickened with product--it was an ugly sight to behold!
I tried to apply it to my eye area with a fingertip as well as a wet brush but could not get decent results. When applied to my cheeks, it emphasized my skin texture, separated into small, patchy bits, and it was horrendous over foundation (only usable, if you stand five feet away from everyone else at all times, over bare skin). It had semi-opaque pigmentation that stayed on decently for six hours on eyes and seven hours on my cheeks.
