The texture was lightweight, silky, and smooth to the touch, though it felt thinner than many of theBalm’s other cheek products. It had good color payoff that could be easily worn sheer or at richer, true-to-pan color. The finish is extraordinary, as it looks beautiful on the skin with a natural-level luminosity that gives the skin a real glow but doesn’t look frosted, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. The silky texture made blending a cinch, and I felt like I barely had to do any work to apply it evenly. On me, the product stayed on well for nine hours before fading slightly.
