Rose Inc Ophelia Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream Blush ($18.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen with barely-there pearl woven throughout (it didn’t read shimmery applied, but it was there in the close-up). The texture was denser, moderately tacky, and cream-like as soon as I broke through the surface, which felt a little drier/firmer initially.
I was surprised that the tackiness didn’t translate into problematic application over foundation, but the blush went on just fine with fingertips or a brush regardless of me applying it directly to bare skin or layered over foundation. I liked a brush better as it was quite pigmented and a little went a long way, so a brush offered better control for me. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

The formula is supposed to be "richly pigmented" (though also "buildable") and "long-wearing" that "hydrate[s] skin." The product is sold with a compact for $30.00 or as a refill pan for $18.
They were very pigmented, so a little went a long way, and I liked using synthetic brushes for application the most because I found I had a little more control over the coverage and could build it up without less error. With a fingertip, the tackier consistency made it easy to pick up more product than necessary, so more blending/diffusion was required.
The consistency was creamy, smooth, and tackier to the touch, so I was surprised it was not prone to lifting up base products as well. I noticed that it seemed a little less dewy when applied over a matte foundation, almost like it took on the underlying base finish, but it didn't create patchiness or unevenness. The blush's finish on bare skin was lightly dewy, not really tacky to the touch, and never fully dried down so there was some transfer if I accidentally touched my face or the like.
They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.
