The good stuff:
- Interesting texture
- Easy to smooth on and blend
- This shade in particular is REALLY lacking in pigmentation
- Lasting power is less than spectacular
- Very tiny! Too pricey imo for the size
My take: The main reason I was disappointed in this blush is because this shade, Rose Petal, barely shows up on me at all! I was expecting it to be a nice flush of, well... ROSE PETAL color!!! Unfortunately, it's an extremely soft shade of pink that melds into my skintone, appearing as a VERY VERY light pink. On cheeks, it gives the SUBTLEST glow... but just barely. Even after piling on the color, it remains quite lackluster in appearance.
A standard compact. Really small though!
It feels really interesting, definitely a novel concept. However this shade in particular really lacked in pigmentation and lasting power.
A bit pricey for the small size!
