The system is meant to provide a “contemporary wash of shade” that’s “easy” to mix with a “natural-looking” end. The protection is designed to be “sheer, buildable” with a “sweat- and water resistant system.” The model recommends to use with fingertips or their 125 brush (which is a reasonably dense, angled brush).
The protection was positively buildable with a bent towards semi-sheer protection, however the depth relied on software methodology. One of the simplest ways to explain was that by the point you utilized and blended out one layer, it usually regarded like that “contemporary wash of shade” it was marketed as having, however I would argue they had been nearer to semi-sheer to medium, buildable protection than true, sheer protection. It was very readily constructed as much as extra intense, extra opaque protection with a second or third layer. It layered fantastically, too, so reaching increased protection was simple to do and was nonetheless as flattering on the pores and skin as one layer.
In the event you took a fingertip and swirled it round not less than as soon as, you’d get increased protection, however it might diffuse a bit to extra semi-sheer to medium protection relying on the shade. With just a few faucets of a moderately-dense, angled brush (like they paired with this system), one may get extra semi-sheer to medium protection in a single layer. A stippling brush was most constant at yielding a sheer wash of shade, whereas fingertip software tended to be extra medium protection.
That being mentioned, that they had the sort of pigmentation that appears pigmented initially however does generally tend to sheer out in actual software, so finger swatches alone are higher as perception into potential opacity however not one layer opacity; the blended out swatch is a greater indicator of as-applied to cheeks protection. I nonetheless suppose they had been extra pigmented than described, however the system was very forgiving in order that they might be used with a lighter hand (like one pat or faucet with fingertip/brush) for true, sheer protection if desired.
The system performed properly with fingertips in addition to brushes, although I most well-liked fingertips as they’re actually simply such a useful, environment friendly device for cream-based formulation like these (and one much less brush to scrub!). I did not have any points making use of and diffusing out the sides of the blush over naked pores and skin or over basis (I paired them with Fenty’s Professional Filtr, which is well-liked but additionally extra matte, so made for check base) because it didn’t raise up base merchandise.
The consistency was extra in keeping with a conventional cream blush; it was emollient and felt moist to the contact within the compact, and it remained emollient when it was utilized to my pores and skin. It didn’t flip to powder as quickly because it got here into contact with my pores and skin, however it did dry down for probably the most half. I felt like there was very high-quality, barely-there pearl by most shades (some had apparent shimmer) which gave the phantasm of dewiness, as a result of once I touched the ultimate software, it appeared dry to the contact however completely had that “natural-looking”–read: skin-like–finish marketed.
They wore between eight and 9 hours earlier than fading a bit, they usually appeared to have a pleasant, even fade past that vary. They appeared water resistant as they did not bleed once I ran swatches underneath water, however you might definitely wipe the product away with mild rubbing so it wasn’t impervious (resistant implies simply that, resistant, however not impervious!).
