Coral Rose

Wayne Goss Coral Rose The Weightless Veil Blush Palette ($45.00 for 0.67 oz.) contains a medium, satiny pink blush paired with a bright, light gold highlighter. The blush had more buildable coverage and was easy to work with; I didn’t have to apply it in a certain order or with a certain tool or cheat the edges to make it look decent, though it wasn’t fully matte and wasn’t as dry as other shades (and past experience suggests this is why).

The highlighter was also nice–blendable, easy to to apply, long-wearing–but was opaque with little product, which was far more than marketed, so whether that’s really a deal-breaker will come down to your personal preference for pigmentation in a highlighter.

Blushing

Blushing is a medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and very fine, golden pearl woven throughout that gave it a satin-like finish–a little glowy but not overtly shimmery. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that was thin but didn’t feel as dry as other shades in the range. This shade was the most forgiving of the four blushes I tried; it worked well over bare skin, unset foundation, and a matte base alone or with the highlighter. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

-

The formula is described as a "smooth-glide powder" that gives a "veil on top of skin that blurs the look of pores, fine lines, and texture" that uses "microfine pigments" that can be built up for long-wearing color. The description seems to apply for both the blush and highlighter, which are presently found together in a duo.

The pigmentation varied from shade to shade; two of the four blush shades were fairly pigmented, while the other two ranged from semi-sheer to medium and buildable. The consistency was slightly drier and thinner, particularly for the shades with less visible shimmer. I am not entirely sure why the formula was billed as a "matte blush" when two shades have visible shimmer particles in the pans.

That thinner, drier formula made it harder to apply on bare skin or over foundation that wasn't fully set/matte as the color applied unevenly, was difficult to diffuse and spread out, and lifted away foundation when I redoubled efforts to blend out using a buffer brush.

I could gently pat the color into place by using very soft, pressing motions over the full area (going back and getting more product each time) but I just couldn't dab some on the apple of my cheek and diffuse and blend it out.

I would highly recommend applying over a matte finish, whether that's translucent powder dusted over bare skin or over foundation, to ensure a more blendable product. This is often an issue with drier, thinner, more matte powders used on cheeks, and this formula didn't improve upon that, unfortunately.

If you do wind up with a wonky application, the best method is to really cheat it by using a bit of foundation (often whatever's leftover on your tool) to diffuse and blend it back rather than working with the blush itself. Alternatively, as it comes in a duo with a highlighter, apply the highlighter first and add blush (as the powder highlighter mattifies a bit), but this does limit the versatility of the product (always shimmery).

The ones with slight to light shimmer were easier to work with as I was able to apply, blend, and diffuse readily over bare skin as well as over foundation without having to set it or have a matte base. The wear time ranged from eight to nine hours. The blush formula seemed to layer over and under the highlighters of the same formula fairly well.

The duos are significantly larger than most others on the market–it’s a massive amount of product as most full-sized blushes are around 0.15 to 0.20 oz.–but the formula lists a nine-month shelf life, which was shorter than expected given it's so large (and would take awhile to finish). For reference, a lot of powder blushes seem to be somewhere between 12 and 18 months for shelf life; 12 seems more common, and I only came across one that was also nine-months (Fenty Killawatts); NARS and Shiseido had a couple of formulas at 24 months.

Rosy

Rosy is a light gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer–a little went a long way–so it was significantly more pigmented than marketed (no “veil” or “soft wash” here!). The texture was fairly soft and smooth to the touch without being powdery, so it was easy to pick up and to apply for an even, blended application of product. It lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The highlighters were actually quite pigmented--one would need to use a light hand to pick up just a bit of product. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery nor too firmly-pressed into the pan. I noticed that one shade--Pearl--looked a bit cakey on skin rather than luminous unless it was really buffed onto my skin. They lasted around eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

I love this shade on my bare skin. I feel like I dodged a bullet here, I bought it based on one swatch and it worked out pretty well for me so far. I’m glad to see it get a good rating.

Also of note, this one surprisingly works just as beautifully and pigmented on NC42+ skintones as it does yours! It looked amazing on [email protected], Kelsee Briana Jai and Tara Lynn. Unfortunately, it is also something I have a few well-loved dupes for; Hourglass Surreal Effect and MAC Double Gleam EDSF. I do use them together often.
