The system is meant to have “vibrant, color-shifting” shades which have an “ultra-lightweight, easy texture that virtually melts onto pores and skin.” They’re described as being “translucent but spotlight reflective” with a “multi-chrome end.” I had completely different experiences throughout the vary, so it was not essentially the most constant of ranges. They did, on common, apply just a little higher in follow than they appeared initially swatched.
For essentially the most half, the regularly-priced ($14 on the time of publishing) shades have been extra like intense duochromes than true multi-chromes to me, and I do assume the value displays that (as their true multichromes are $36 every). That they had translucent bases throughout the board with some shades having stronger preliminary protection than others, however they produced a noticeable sheen and shift on my pores and skin.
The feel was what diversified from shade to shade with some shades feeling drier, nearly crumbly, and being significantly liable to emphasizing pores and skin texture, though I haven’t got that a lot seen texture on my cheeks (this isn’t a typical subject for me, it might occur however it’s rare that I actually really feel a highlighter emphasizes my texture!) whereas different shades have been firmer however utilized extra easily on my pores and skin.
I appreciated the tones and shade vary extra so than the system, however a few shades have been actually pretty to work with. They tended to put on round eight hours on my pores and skin earlier than fading visibly, although the chunkier, extra sparkly shades had seen migration across the six-hour mark.
