ColourPop Foxy Pressed Powder Blush ($ 8.00 for 0.13 oz.) Is a medium orange with moderate warm undertones and flecks of gold that sparkle over a semi-matte base. The texture was soft, slightly powdery, and on the thinner side, which made mixing less foolproof – it was best applied to a more matte base, be it a firm base or just drier skin as it tended to head towards it natural oils react on the skin. It had a semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted well for eight hours before visibly fading.

The formula is said to go on “smoothly” and have a “natural and healthy blush” that has “long wear” and “can be layered to the desired intensity”. It is a light to moderately powdery powder red with a semi-transparent to semi-opaque, buildable color scheme. The consistency feels drier and thinner, and while it feels silky, I’ve found that it can be difficult to evenly distribute the type of powder red on the skin, depending on your skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin / base, the better the formula would blend, but natural oils or slips caused an uneven blush and were difficult to fade out. The wear and tear averaged between seven and eight hours for me.
