Victoria Beckham Knickers Beauty Cheeky Posh Cream Blush Review & Swatches
Victoria Beckham Beauty Knickers Cheeky Posh ($42.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy coral with strong, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, lightly emollient consistency that applied well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation.
I didn’t have any issues diffusing and blending out the product over foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting it up. I preferred using fingertips to apply and to blend, as the formula naturally spread out so using it directly from the tube didn’t really yield higher coverage than using fingertips as it needed to be layered to achieve higher coverage (if desired). It wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably on my skin.

The formula is supposed to have "buildable coverage with a "natural, easy flush" with "last[ing]" color. They offer semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage, as marketed, and even though it seemed more opaque when applied directly from the tube, the formula readily sheered out in practice, so it had to be layered to achieve higher coverage.
I preferred picking up product with a fingertip or a stippling brush and then applying, as this gave me greater control over the area of spread. If working directly from the tube, I recommend a gentle dab and a very, very short and sweet swipe motion (nothing more than 1/2"!). The consistency was more like a gel-cream with good glide, light dewiness, and sat well on bare skin as well as on top of foundation as it wasn't prone to disturbing base products.
The formula did not feel tacky during wear, and while they weren't very dewy, they had a natural finish overall. They wore for eight hours before showing signs of slight fading on me.

Very soft, pretty shade for the lighter end of the skin color spectrum. However, this would never even show up on me, much less anyone darker than me.
This is really pretty and it looks so natural on you Christine.
