Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to be a "cream-to-powder" texture that has "one-swipe blendable coverage" with a finish that will "smooth skin texture" in addition to highlighting it.

They were scented with a beachy, coconutty scent, though I didn't notice it once applied.

This provides a natural but intense finish and is slightly duochrome. Very long wearing- great for the cheeks but also as an inner corner highlight.
