The Artistique Blush formula is supposed to have a “naturally glowing finish.” The formula is consistent: the blushes have a very soft, almost cream-like powder texture that blends out effortlessly to a luminous sheen with semi-opaque to opaque coverage (that is easily applied more sheerly or layered for true-to-pan color) and good wear (eight to nine hours). Classique was richly pigmented, and a little went on a very, very long way–this is ideal for someone who needs and wants a lot of coverage in their blush. The texture was incredibly smooth and silky, which made it easier to blend and diffuse, but you’ll still want to be careful about how much you apply to avoid having to really buff it out. The finish became more satiny as I blended and worked the powder into the skin. This shade wore well for nine hours before I noticed fading.

A note on packaging: Surratt’s range comes in lightweight plastic pans, which aren’t ideal for long-term use (particularly if traveling or putting in a makeup bag), as his products are designed to be put into custom palette solutions. Personally, I put magnets on the back of each and keep them in freestyle palettes (like a Z-Palette) as it is more economical.

This is *so* beautiful! I would have to use a very light hand with it, however! Maybe my MUFE #120 medium powder fan brush would work well (I’m using that with the Moonchild palette, so I don’t get too many sparkles on my face).

Holy fan brush, is that nice! I had better get the mini Mac, bec if I get this and a z for it, I’d be sliding down the slippery Surratt slope, and all too soon, I’d have a z-full. That’s my downfalling path. Sometimes it is better never to start with a brand. Didn’t both Surratt and Sue Devitt study under NARS? Really ought not go there. Believe I’d have significant trouble, right when I’m trying to pare back the spending.

I find that they can sit in their included packaging as long as you aren’t one to travel or keep it in your makeup bag – if they just sit in a drawer, the packaging suffices (but it is definitely not fancy or substantial packaging). I only keep them in Zs since you know, I have so many, lol!

That’s what I mean….a z full of Troy. Maybe he can sit in my z with old Shus. Once I like something, I invariably have to get it in every acceptable color. Better cosdna it. Maybe there’s an ingredient that doesn’t agree with me.
