The components is meant to have “buildable protection” with a “trace” of dewiness that may be utilized with fingertips, sponge, or a duo fiber brush and is really helpful to be utilized previous to powder merchandise. I struggled to use the components, and I attempted utilizing fingertips, sponges, and varied brushes each over basis, underneath basis, over naked pores and skin, and even over powder (which is the other of what they are saying to do!).
For me, it appeared like the problem was that there was approach an excessive amount of slip within the product, so as an alternative of making use of and mixing out, the colour simply pushed round. It had the worst utility after I used fingertips to use, which I would apply by patting and urgent the colour (gently!) onto my cheeks and utilizing the sting of my fingertip to melt. That is my go-to technique with cream-based cheek colours, and it often works, however I could not get the colour to remain and place.
I attempted utilizing a sponge, however the sponge appeared to soak up quite a lot of the colour that it made it exhausting to get detectable protection out of it. I discovered a stippling brush to work higher, and I gently flicked the comb towards my cheeks to deposit shade, waited 10 seconds, after which tried to diffuse and even out the colour. This labored considerably and generally, however it didn’t at all times work, sadly, and when it did not, there was virtually no seen shade.
Because it appeared overly emollient, for almost all of my utility makes an attempt, I squeezed out product on the again of my hand, so I might swirl or choose up product because it had dried out a little bit bit, however this didn’t assist a lot! The “greatest” technique I discovered was to softly dab the product onto my cheeks utilizing fingertips, let it sit for 5 to 10 seconds, then use an artificial brush to melt the sides with the gentlest contact and solely do every space as soon as, after which go away it alone and settle for regardless of the final result was.
It didn’t play effectively with the assorted base merchandise I attempted–a mixture of liquid foundations and tinted moisturizers, each set and unset–as it was vulnerable to sliding them round or lifting them up. They had been higher over naked pores and skin, however they had been an actual problem to work with. They had been additionally not buildable in my expertise as this resulted within the first layer transferring round and lifting away from the primary space and leaving a raised fringe of product.
The consistency was very fluid to the purpose the place it felt runny; it might slide down the again of my hand with assistance from gravity and accomplish that shortly. It took awhile to dry down, and it was considerably movable with gentle dewiness in its end however wasn’t cheesy. They lasted round six hours on me earlier than fading visibly.
