amazing color and very interesting composition. i expected the texture to be more liquid-y and very easy to smooth out but this is far more like a balm. imagine very pigmented very thick carmex coming out of a tube. it’s almost waxy but it’s very easy to spread and very dewy looking. i received the color nu pinch and it’s the perfect nude pink even on my medium-dark skin tone for that fresh & clean running out the house look. i will say that even though it is pigmented i found myself having to use a lot of it because my beauty blender just sucked it up. overall i would buy it if it had better ingredients because it’s a great blush for summer!...Great color...I like that this product serves as both a blush and lip color. I received the dark color, so it was a bit too dark for my cheeks, as I am relatively fair skinned.
