I’m pretty sure that this was my first experience with a blush by L’oreal and I am not disappointed. I feel like they did a great job with the level of pigmentation. You can go into the pan with any brush shape without being careful, but it still picks up enough color to show up. In my experience, this blush works great with both synthetic and natural hair brushes. The formula is easy to blend on the skin and despite the inclusion of emollient ingredients (i.e. coconut oil, mango seed butter), it behaves like a traditional powder formula.
