The feel was light-weight, emollient with out being too moist or creamy, and simple to unfold throughout my pores and skin for a seamless, subtle utility.

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 not 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 effectively and worn effectively over basis up to now, too. They aren’t transfer-proof however are transfer-resistant; they will not smear round with an inadvertent contact however aren’t absolutely locked down.
The pigmentation diverse a bit from shade to shade, however most shades have been semi-opaque to totally opaque when utilized immediately from the tube in a single “swipe” movement, although I believe mimicking this on cheeks is not fairly as simply accomplished as in comparison with my arm. I most popular 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 have been as straightforward 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 doable, however there’s sufficient slip within the components 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 effectively over naked pores and skin. I did not expertise it lifting up or creating patchiness over time on high of basis, even after I set the inspiration initially, however I might advocate (identical as I might for many cream-based cheek formulation!) to pair with a less-matte basis for optimum outcomes (the dewy end performs effectively with a extra skin-like base).
Oh, the caps have the names of the merchandise, however the remainder of the tube does not, so if in case you have multiple open, take care in getting the fitting lid again on!
