ColourPop Picnic Time Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with average, heat undertones and a pure sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation–simply may get to semi-opaque protection if desired!–paired with a reasonably emollient consistency that had a good quantity of slip.
I felt prefer it was extra emollient than most shades within the method, and this translated right into a less-even software that was tougher to work with utilizing fingertips (there’s one spot within the images that appears extra uneven than it was–that may be a hyperpigmentation mark coming by means of and making the product look darker primarily based on assessing it in particular person!). A brush gave me slightly extra gentleness, which helped to melt and diffuse the product across the edges that my fingertips couldn’t obtain. I usually haven’t any bother making use of this method with fingertips or brushes, although. It lasted for eight hours earlier than fading visibly on my pores and skin.

The method 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 instantly 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 never discovered that they migrate or transfer round a lot, so the method remains 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 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 different a bit from shade to shade, however most shades have been semi-opaque to totally opaque when utilized instantly from the tube in a single “swipe” movement, although I believe mimicking this on cheeks is not fairly as simply completed 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 simple to use and mix out as very mild, extra my-skin-but-better (actually, my pores and skin!) hues. I’d describe the method was buildable from semi-sheer to medium with semi-opaque protection potential, however there’s sufficient slip within the method that it begins to sheer out noticeably even when utilized extra closely.
The consistency was flippantly 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 muse initially, however I’d advocate (identical 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 multiple open, take care in getting the precise lid again on!
