Phytosurgence Smolder Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with robust, heat orange undertones and a pure end. The consistency was easy, creamy, and reasonably emollient, which helped the cream blush glide and mix out simply over naked pores and skin and on high of basis (with out lifting up base merchandise).
It was intensely pigmented, as marketed, and one undoubtedly wants to make use of a lighter hand when working with it initially. It was considerably forgiving because it was fairly blendable, but it surely was THAT pigmented that utilizing considerably much less was nonetheless probably the most foolproof to use it. There was considerably of a dry down, so whereas it had extra noticeable slip initially, it was extra powder-like after a minute or so. It wasn’t transfer-proof, but it surely wasn’t cheesy, dewy, and was tougher to diffuse/mix as soon as it dried down. This shade lasted properly for eight hours earlier than fading noticeably.

The components is meant to have a “considerably powder like end” with out being “sticky or greasy” paired with a “moussey cream” consistency. The model advises to make use of little or no as it’s an “extremely pigmented product” that’s designed to be “sheered out” and used “onto naked pores and skin or on high of different base make-up.”
It’s crucial to make use of the smallest quantity; it could be even higher to choose up product with a stippling brush gently and swirl as soon as on the again of 1’s hand to make sure there’s not an excessive amount of on the brush–the components is THAT pigmented! With fingertips, only one light faucet of of my index finger on the floor was sufficient for every cheek; there is no must swirl.
The consistency felt creamy, dense however not overly agency within the pot, and it was straightforward to use and mix out on naked pores and skin or on high of basis. I preferred to use with fingertips as I felt prefer it prolonged my working time and gave me the power to have the product on one fingertip after which use a clear fingertip to diffuse and mix.
The components dries all the way down to a satin end, not fairly matte however not dewy. It appeared very “skin-like” because the product sat seamlessly on my pores and skin, let my pores and skin’s pure end come via, and was extra transfer-resistant because of the extra noticeable dry down. I most well-liked working one cheek at a time as a result of it does turn out to be tougher to mix as soon as it dries down, however I had sufficient working time with out feeling rushed (per cheek).
The shades wore between seven and eight hours on me earlier than fading a bit, however that they had a good fade and did not slide/migrate as they wore down.
One factor I seen was that just a few shades appeared to have a hotter base once I did the sheerer/extra blended out swatch, however they appeared much less apt to show hotter once I utilized to my cheeks (see Fervor swatched vs. utilized).
