$8.00/0.33 oz. – $24.24 Per Ounce
The system 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 making use of straight 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 need.” 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 system continues to be longer-wearing at seven to 9 hours with minimal motion. They’ve utilized properly and worn properly over basis to date, 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 absolutely locked down.
The pigmentation assorted a bit from shade to shade, however most shades had been semi-opaque to completely opaque when utilized straight from the tube in a single “swipe” movement, although I feel mimicking this on cheeks is not fairly as simply finished as in comparison with my arm. I most well-liked choosing 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 straightforward to use and mix out as very gentle, extra my-skin-but-better (actually, my pores and skin!) hues. I’d describe the system was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection doable, however there’s sufficient slip within the system that it begins to sheer out noticeably even when utilized extra closely.
The consistency was calmly 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 after 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 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 a couple of open, take care in getting the best lid again on!
