The formula is supposed to be “mega pigmented” and “melt seamlessly” for a “second-skin finish.” They were pigmented–mostly opaque to fully opaque–but the firmer, denser texture (though not stiff) made it easy to pick up less product simply by using a lighter hand or a less-dense brush.
The consistency felt like a softer take on a gel-hybrid formulation, as it was firm and dense but not stiff, yet there was some extra slip to it that I don’t find in true gel-hybrid formulas (like the brand’s own highlighters). The powder applied evenly and blended out with little effort, and they took on a soft matte finish–not flat or powdery but not overtly shimmery either.
They wore between eight and nine hours on me.
