Rose Inc Dahlia Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream BlushRose Inc Dahlia Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream Blush ($18.00 for 0.15 oz.) is rich red with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, luminous sheen that was skin-like but not glossy. The formula doesn’t have a full dry down, so it retained light luminosity throughout wear. It had rich pigmentation where a little went a long way, so go in with a lighter hand initially and build up as desired to ensure the easiest, most consistent application.
I found the blush to apply evenly and blend out well, but naturally, it was easier to add a little as needed than to really sheer it out! The texture was lightly tacky to the touch, denser as well, but it spread well over bare skin and on top of foundation. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

The formula is supposed to be “richly pigmented” (though also “buildable”) and “long-wearing” that “hydrate[s] skin.” The product is sold with a compact for $30.00 or as a refill pan for $18.
They were very pigmented, so a little went a long way, and I liked using synthetic brushes for application the most because I found I had a little more control over the coverage and could build it up without less error. With a fingertip, the tackier consistency made it easy to pick up more product than necessary, so more blending/diffusion was required.
The consistency was creamy, smooth, and tackier to the touch, so I was surprised it was not prone to lifting up base products as well. I noticed that it seemed a little less dewy when applied over a matte foundation, almost like it took on the underlying base finish, but it didn’t create patchiness or unevenness. The blush’s finish on bare skin was lightly dewy, not really tacky to the touch, and never fully dried down so there was some transfer if I accidentally touched my face or the like.
They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before showing signs of fading.
