Out of all the products I bought this was probably one of products I was more confident about. When I played with the testers it felt very smooth and had reasonable pigmentation.
I think the name "smoky rose" is very appropriate, the colour is a pretty muted rose. It has little visible shimmer, just enough for a glowing look. It does apply very smoothly and true to colour, but that's were the positives end. It just doesn't have any strong pigment or lasting power. I applied my makeup around 8 a.m. and yesterday it faded by 11 a.m. Today I decided to layer it over a cream blusher and it did last longer, but now at 1 p.m. the colour is all gone.
Now I don't expect it to have the same longevity as more expensive blushers, but only a few hours of usage is definitely not worth it for me. It can be reapplied during the day without looking muddy. It's a great colour and very appropriate for Winter makeup, but I won't see myself reaching for it because of the maintenance necessary to keep it throughout the day.
