Color Pop Aloha Blush Stix ($eight.00 for zero.33 oz.) is a muted, peachy-orange with heat undertones and a pure sheen. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to largely opaque, relying on utility technique; utilizing the product straight on the face will yield probably the most pigmentation, whereas utilizing fingertips or a brush to use will yield extra gradual protection. The feel was light-weight, emollient with out being cheesy or too slippery, which helped it unfold nicely over naked pores and skin in addition to over basis (with out lifting it up). The colour had a pure, dewy end that didn’t absolutely dry down however didn’t really feel cheesy. This shade stayed on properly for eight and a half hours on me.

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 select 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 formulation continues to be longer-wearing at seven to 9 hours with minimal motion. They’ve utilized nicely and worn nicely over basis up to now, 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 diversified a bit from shade to shade, however most shades have 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 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 perimeters as wanted. I appreciated that even the deeper hues did not appear to “sink” into my pores and have 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 formulation was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection potential, 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 raise 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 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 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 have a couple of open, take care in getting the appropriate lid again on!
