Adoration (Right) is described as a "shimmering hot pink." It's a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. Applied dry, it was semi-sheer and buildable, with a more satin-like finish that gave the skin a lovely glow that didn't draw attention to pores, and it lasted for eight hours on me. Applied damp, it was intensely pigmented with nearly opaque coverage from the get-go, and you'll want to apply the smallest amount and build-up, or else you'll have a lot of work ahead of you. The dampened application intensifies the sheen, but it doesn't turn metallic, so it still gives a glow without emphasizing the texture of the skin, and applied this way, the blush lasted for nine hours.
