Color Pop Cool It Blush Stix ($eight.00 for zero.33 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with heat undertones and a dewy sheen. It had extra opaque protection when utilized immediately from the tube and extra buildable protection from semi-sheer to principally opaque when utilized with fingertips or a brush. The feel was easy, flippantly emollient so it unfold simply throughout my pores and skin, nevertheless it felt extra like a cream-gel hybrid because it wasn’t cheesy or too heavy. It utilized evenly to reveal pores and skin or over basis, and it wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me.

The method is meant to “mix effortlessly” with a “pure, skin-like end” that may be layered or utilized on naked pores and skin. The model recommends applyling immediately from the tube for heavier protection and utilizing a brush to select up product for much less protection, although the protection “simply builds color to your coronary heart’s want.” They dry all the way down to a semi-set finish–lightly dewy, positively “pure, skin-like” in look, however not overly cheesy or actually wet-looking. I have never discovered that they migrate or transfer round a lot, so the method continues to be longer-wearing at seven to 9 hours with minimal motion. They’ve utilized nicely and worn nicely over basis to this point, too. They don’t seem to be transfer-proof however are transfer-resistant; they will not smear round with an inadvertent contact however aren’t totally locked down.
The pigmentation various a bit from shade to shade, however most shades had been semi-opaque to totally opaque when utilized immediately from the tube in a single “swipe” movement, although I feel mimicking this on cheeks is not fairly as simply completed as in comparison with my arm. I most popular selecting up product on my fingertip, patting on the apple of my cheek and diffusing upward and outward, then utilizing a clear fingertip to diffuse and soften the perimeters as wanted. I appreciated that even the deeper hues did not appear to “sink” into my pores and had been as straightforward to use and mix out as very mild, extra my-skin-but-better (actually, my pores and skin!) hues. I’d describe the method was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection attainable, however there’s sufficient slip within the method that it begins to sheer out noticeably even when utilized extra closely.
The consistency was flippantly emollient, light-weight, and skinny with good spreadability and motion; it did not carry up base merchandise however nonetheless labored nicely over naked pores and skin. I did not expertise it lifting up or creating patchiness over time on high of basis, even once I set the inspiration initially, however I’d advocate (similar as I’d for many cream-based cheek formulation!) to pair with a less-matte basis for optimum outcomes (the dewy end performs nicely with a extra skin-like base).
Oh, the caps have the names of the merchandise, however the remainder of the tube does not, so when you’ve got multiple open, take care in getting the correct lid again on!
