Rare Beauty Nearly Neutral Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream BlushRare Beauty Nearly Neutral Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, dusty pink with hotter undertones and a satin end. It had sheer to semi-sheer shade protection in a single layer, which was as described, and may very well be constructed up in protection, however I felt the formulation made that much less fascinating because the product turned extra liable to lifting and pushing away from itself (which resulted in a patchier, extra uneven consequence) even when the protection did construct up in any other case.
The feel was emollient, light-weight, and skinny–extra like a standard cream blush–when initially touched and picked up from the pan, nevertheless it turned to a drier, extra powder-like really feel when it got here into contact with pores and skin. As a result of I discovered the product to be much less forgiving after it had dried down (and it is vitally fast to take action!), brushes gave me extra working time and in the end a better success charge than fingertips. I discovered fingertips have been higher for getting just a little high up of further shade if I solely wanted it in a really small space. It labored nicely utilized over naked pores and skin and over lighter protection foundations for that preliminary layer.
It wore nicely for eight hours earlier than fading visibly however wasn’t liable to sliding round because it didn’t stay moist or cheesy after it was utilized.

The formulation is meant to be a “liquid-like cream” that “melts” on pores and skin for a “second pores and skin” look with a “wash of soft-focus shade” that’s “waterproof” and has a “satin end.” It did appear waterproof after I examined it on the again of my hand and definitely did not transfer readily after it had been blended out and dried down.
The feel was skinny, emollient, and extra like a standard cream within the pan and when initially picked up on a fingertip or a brush, nevertheless it was fast to dry down and switch to a extra powder-like end that was satin-like–not completely matte however not dewy at all–when it got here into contact with pores and skin. For that reason, a stippling brush was just a little simpler to work with and extra forgiving than a fingertip.
The pigmentation was as marketed; it was sheer to semi-sheer with some capability to construct up protection, however the extra silicone-heavy formulation was higher with one or two layers than extra closely constructed up because it had an inclination to tablet and elevate when fussed with an excessive amount of. I do not know that I would contemplate it to be a simple formulation, however as soon as you determine the most effective approach, the outcomes themselves, because the protection is sheerer, are extra foolproof.
The formulation labored higher on naked pores and skin and lighter protection foundations that have been extra matte to pure however not overly dewy/luminous. The formulation was blendable, but when I did not get a good mix shortly, it was tougher to appropriate by itself; it was simpler to mix out the sides utilizing my basis brush (and no matter was leftover on it) to melt any unblended edges. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me earlier than fading visibly.
