Thoughts: When I first saw this in person and swatched it on my hand, I knew I had to get it. It's gorgeous! Not only that and it might only be me when I hear it's a new product from any brand, I am drawn to it.
Here's how it looks on me. I applied it on the high points of my cheeks, the bridge and tip of my nose, and cupid's bow.Lancome Auda[City] in Paris Palette and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Gloss Stain in Corail Aquatique on the lips.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it's light-weight with magnetic closure/opening. I actually like the packaging. I hate when I need to dig into the opening to open. I usually break my nails or chip the polish. With this, it's extremely easy to open and close. I don't even need to use my nails. Secondly, the consistency is buttery soft and pigmented. The powder reminds me of their blush and eyeshadow powders. How they're soft and feels great on the fingers! There are hardly any fall-outs and easy to apply. With that said, the color is opaque. It'll look great on medium to dark skin individuals. With my light to medium skin, I notice it well on my nose especially the tip and cupid's bow. I notice it on the pictures the top part of the cheeks but I don't seem to notice it much in person. It's probably me and my bad eye sight. Lastly, it's lasted all day on me except cupid's bow. It comes off when the lip color is rubbed off. It also doesn't make me look greasy as time goes on. It looks nice. This is great on all skin types especially normal to dry skin individuals.
