The components is meant to be long-wearing with a “light-as-air,” “blendable” texture that “lives to be layered.” They twist-up and are medium-sized with a domed edge. I discovered that making use of to my fingertips labored higher than direct utility, because it enabled me better management over protection degree in addition to placement, and in the event you have a tendency to use over basis, then this can assist maintain the Match Stix cleaner, too.

The feel was skinny, and it did appear to go from a “cream” within the tube to a extra powder-like product as soon as on the pores and skin. They had been pretty blendable with a couple of being extra sparkly with much less seen base coloration, which is probably not for everybody, and others had a extra pearl-like sheen that didn’t emphasize my pores and skin’s pure texture. Most shades utilized and blended out with out lifting up basis or pulling into pores (over naked pores and skin), however the ones that did tended to have bigger particles in them. They lasted between six and eight hours on me.

An issue I had all through simply swatching every shade on my cheeks for pictures was that no matter was uncovered was a bit dry, extra powdery to the contact, and I felt like I needed to actually heat the product up and/or swipe it forwards and backwards on the again of my hand to refresh the feel. This isn’t unusual with drier, cream-based formulation, but it surely’s nonetheless a draw back and an space that could possibly be improved upon. Some shades had been very pigmented, others had been medium and buildable, and a pair had been sheerer.
