Medium

($16.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium brown with warmer, more golden undertones and a natural sheen. The finish had some noticeable dewiness on my skin and never fully dried down, so it retained that sheen throughout the wear, though it wasn’t the longest-wearing formula (but wore away well).

The texture was lightweight, emollient, and thin without being tacky, which helped the product apply well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation as it did not lift away my base products or create patchiness. It had sheer to semi-sheer pigmentation that I could build up to medium coverage if desired. It wore nicely for seven hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

$16.00/0.15 oz. - $106.67 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "buttery soft, easy to blend" and is supposed to have "sheer, buildable coverage with a soft, skin-like finish." Though it's available in three types--highlighter, contour/bronzer, and blush--they formulas do not differ dramatically in terms of performance and feel.

It had sheer coverage that was buildable to more medium coverage, but getting full-on opacity didn't seem like it was really in the realm of possibilities, so those who either need or want greater, truer-to-pan coverage may not find it as workable. I'd recommend sticking with deeper shades for those who need or want more coverage, too, as the lighter shades were less buildable.

As a cheek product, the formula applied evenly and blended out well on bare skin as well as patted over base products as it wasn't a formula prone to lifting up complexion products. The finish was dewier, though it seemed to soften a bit after an hour or so of wear. They wear was between six and seven hours before there was noticeable fading and/or light movement/slide. I had the best wear when applied over a more matte foundation as compared to bare skin or a dewier/more luminous foundation choice.

Oh wow this looks really good on you. Like a for real tropical summer color after a few days of fun in the sun. Not a makeup version of a tan, but the real thing. I’ve been eyeing up the Salt cream tints more and more. My ABH cream palette is old, gunky, and the colors don’t match my skin like I thought they did. People say nice things about her cream tints, they’re silicone-free, and not overly expensive. I had a slight hangup when browsing reddit. Guess there was some “drama” (when isn’t there? look, i’m here for legit “drama” all day about bad behaving companies…but if your drama revolves around receiving a funny look one day, sweetheart that’s not a real problem now sit down and be quiet for a while) that I gotta look up tosee who I’m financially supporting with my purchase.
