Merit Terracotta Flush Balm Cream Blush ($28.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a light brown with warmer undertones and a glossy finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation, which was as marketed, that applied evenly to my skin and diffused easily along the edges for a soft, watercolor-like effect.
The formula didn't dry down, so it remained emollient and glossy throughout wear, which made it shorter-wearing (six hours) but had a flattering fade-away that didn't slide around, just gradually disappeared over time. The consistency was very emollient with a lot of slip, thinner but was easy to apply over bare skin and on top of foundation as it did not lift away base products or create patchiness. It lasted for six hours before fading noticeably.
