Melt Cosmetics Sandy Cheeks is a very warm-toned, very dark peach with a natural finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $22.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Melt Cosmetics Sandy Cheeks Cream Blushlight ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium brown with strong, warm orange undertones and a natural finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, though the formula was blendable and spreadable, so it was fairly easy to correct or sheer out if one applied too much. I would recommend using less than you think you need and building up--as it built up nicely--if you don't need or want full coverage from the get-go.
The consistency was smooth, creamy, and moderately emollient without being overly slippery, so it worked well with fingertips and brushes over bare skin and over foundation as it did not create patchiness or lift up base products. The formula dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish that retained some sheen but did not look dewy. The color applied evenly and blended out without much effort. It lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
