Rare Beauty Encourage is a very warm-toned, dark pink with a natural finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $23.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Rare Beauty Encourage Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and a soft, dewy finish. The warmth was more apparent the sheerer it was applied as the undertone was really what carried that hint of warmth through. The consistency felt smooth, fluid, and lightweight with great spreadability, so I didn't have to worry about it lifting up my base products, but it also worked beautifully applied on bare skin.
As the brand recommends, it was best applied with one dot of product per cheek as it was very, very pigmented so a little went an incredibly long way. Thankfully, it has such a blendable formula that as long as one goes in with one or two dots, it's a cinch to apply. It stayed on nicely for nine and a half hours before fading a bit.
