Phytosurgence Swelter Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, reddish-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It was richly pigmented to the point where one needed the smallest amount to achieve medium coverage, which was easily sheered out and diffused along the edges for a seamless layer of color on cheeks.
The texture was lightweight, creamy, and emollient without being too slippery, so I didn't have any trouble applying it with fingertips or a brush, whether over bare skin or on top of base products. The cream blush dried down to a more powder-like and transfer-resistant feel after a minute or so, and I'd recommend working one cheek at a time. I felt like I had enough working time (without being rushed) to apply and blend out. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Skin Spark is our vision of bringing skincare and make up together. An essential oil and fragrance free blend of waxes, butters, and oils mixed with minerals and pigments, this line of blush balms is something special. The skincare base provides soothing emollience to the skin while keeping moisture and hydration locked in, while also delivering high impact pigment that can be sheered out beautifully on the skin. These blush balms can be applied onto bare skin or on top of other base make up. The finish can be described as softly radiant - glowy but definitely not oily. Long lasting given that there is not a lot of contact being made with the face throughout the day.
