Sex Appeal is a light pinky-peach with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was silky, finely-milled, and soft enough that it was a touch dusty in the pan, but it didn't look dry or chalky on my skin tone., though the color doesn't really show up on my complexion (I'm so sorry!) and will obviously be more visible on someone of a lighter skin tone. I tried to really pack it on, but as it was hard to see on me, I was only able to guess that it was still on after seven hours (I looked for a sheen coming through, since it did have a mattifying effect that I could detect). LORAC Luma (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). NARS Conquest (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Peach Splendor (LE, $44.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals The Spring Fling (LE, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Trustworthy (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Nancy (Light) (DC, ) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Amber Glow (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Mallory (Light) (DC, ) is cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Gold Palette #8 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Petunia (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Duchesse (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Stay By Me (P, $23.50) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Inner Beauty (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Adored (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Cherish (P, $10.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Zoeva Yet to Come (PiP, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (Highlighter) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Bliss (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Corol #1 (LE, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar).

My favorite everyday blush. This is perfect for the ultra-lightskinned like me :) I don't normally wear peachy colors but this one is a big exception. Even when I don't feel like putting anything else on, I'll wear some of this.
