Color Pop Appearing Up Lite Stix ($eight.00 for zero.33 oz.) is a lightweight, coppery orange with heat undertones and a wonderful, golden pearl that gave it a luminous end. It had opaque pigmentation when utilized straight from the tube, although it was very spreadable so it could possibly be sheered out if most well-liked, whereas making use of utilizing a brush or fingertips yielded sheerer, extra buildable protection. The consistency was evenly creamy, emollient with out being too moist or sticky, and spreadable with out lifting up base merchandise (but in addition labored nicely on naked pores and skin). It wore nicely for eight hours on me earlier than fading noticeably.

The formulation 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 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 want.” They dry all the way down to a semi-set finish–lightly dewy, undoubtedly “pure, skin-like” in look, however not overly cheesy or actually wet-looking. I have not discovered that they migrate or transfer round a lot, so the formulation continues to be longer-wearing at seven to 9 hours with minimal motion. They’ve utilized nicely and worn nicely 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 diversified a bit from shade to shade, however most shades had been semi-opaque to totally opaque when utilized straight 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 well-liked 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 might describe the formulation was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection attainable, however there’s sufficient slip within the formulation that it begins to sheer out noticeably even when utilized extra closely.
The consistency was evenly 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 muse initially, however I might suggest (similar as I might 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 would not, so you probably have a couple of open, take care in getting the suitable lid again on!
