The formula is supposed to have a “superfine texture” with “buildable” coverage that is available in both matte and shimmer finishes. The consistency was thinner and almost chalk-like compared to the prior formula, and while I think it applied and looked better on my skin than it looked, the matte shades were quite flat on skin and would benefit from an additional product to breathe life back into the skin.
The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade but was typically medium and buildable, which was reinforced by the texture itself being a bit firmer overall. I tested eight of the 13 shades I purchased for wear, and they lasted six to seven hours on me, which is shorter than typical for powder blush on my normal-to-dry skin. I would describe the wear as more prone to fading, and they seemed to disappear faster than most blushes (even as they did fade evenly).
