It was once much less dewy in comparison to maximum sunglasses within the vary; it virtually seemed satin to semi-matte when swatched yet did appear to have a little extra glowiness to it when in truth carried out and combined out on my cheeks. The texture was once light-weight, skinny with out being vulnerable to clinginess, and it unfold slightly smartly throughout my pores and skin.

The pigmentation was once most commonly opaque when carried out immediately from the tube and extra buildable from semi-sheer to most commonly opaque when carried out with fingertips or a broom. It stayed on properly for 9 hours ahead of shifting visibly on my pores and skin.

The formulation is meant to “blend effortlessly” with a “natural, skin-like finish” that may be layered or carried out on naked pores and skin. The emblem recommends applyling immediately from the tube for heavier protection and the usage of a broom to select up product for much less protection, despite the fact that the protection “easily builds colour to your heart’s desire.” They dry all the way down to a semi-set finish–lightly dewy, undoubtedly “natural, skin-like” in look, yet no longer overly cheesy or truly wet-looking. I have not discovered that they migrate or transfer round a lot, so the formulation remains to be longer-wearing at seven to 9 hours with minimum motion. They have carried out smartly and worn smartly over basis so far, too. They aren’t transfer-proof yet are transfer-resistant; they may not smear round with an inadvertent contact yet don’t seem to be totally locked down.
The pigmentation numerous a little from color to color, yet maximum sunglasses have been semi-opaque to totally opaque when carried out immediately from the tube in a single “swipe” movement, despite the fact that I feel mimicking this on cheeks is not moderately as simply completed as in comparison to my arm. I most popular selecting up product on my fingertip, patting at the apple of my cheek and diffusing upward and outward, then the usage of a blank fingertip to diffuse and melt the sides as wanted. I preferred 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 mild, extra my-skin-but-better (actually, my pores and skin!) hues. I might describe the formulation was once buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection conceivable, yet there may be sufficient slip within the formulation that it begins to sheer out noticeably even if carried out extra closely.
The consistency was once evenly emollient, light-weight, and skinny with excellent spreadability and motion; it did not carry up base merchandise yet nonetheless labored smartly over naked pores and skin. I did not revel in it lifting up or developing patchiness through the years on best of basis, even if I set the basis first of all, yet I might suggest (identical as I might for many cream-based cheek formulation!) to pair with a less-matte basis for optimum effects (the dewy end performs smartly with a extra skin-like base).
Oh, the caps have the names of the goods, yet the remainder of the tube does not, so if in case you have multiple open, take care in getting the fitting lid again on!
