Color Pop Totes Blush Stix ($eight.00 for zero.33 oz.) is a wealthy coral with heat undertones and a barely-there pearl paired with a dewy end. The blush had a light-weight, flippantly emollient consistency that unfold simply over my pores and skin (even on prime of basis) however nonetheless had good adhesion and went on evenly. The feel felt extra substantial with out being heavy or cheesy. It had almost opaque pigmentation when utilized immediately from the tube, and you’ll obtain extra medium, buildable protection when utilized with fingertips or a brush. It wore properly for eight and a half hours on me earlier than fading barely.

The components 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 choose up product for much less protection, although the protection “simply builds color to your coronary heart’s want.” They dry right 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 components continues to be longer-wearing at seven to 9 hours with minimal motion. They’ve utilized properly and worn properly over basis so far, 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 assorted a bit from shade to shade, however most shades had been semi-opaque to completely opaque when utilized immediately from the tube in a single “swipe” movement, although I believe mimicking this on cheeks is not fairly as simply achieved 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 sides as wanted. I appreciated that even the deeper hues did not appear to “sink” into my pores and had been as simple to use and mix out as very gentle, extra my-skin-but-better (actually, my pores and skin!) hues. I might describe the components was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection attainable, however there’s sufficient slip within the components 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 raise up base merchandise however nonetheless labored properly over naked pores and skin. I did not expertise it lifting up or creating patchiness over time on prime of basis, even once I set the muse initially, however I might suggest (identical as I might for many cream-based cheek formulation!) to pair with a less-matte basis for optimum outcomes (the dewy end performs properly with a extra skin-like base).
Oh, the caps have the names of the merchandise, however the remainder of the tube would not, so when you have multiple open, take care in getting the appropriate lid again on!
