The formula is supposed to have a “buildable” formula that has a “radiant, lit-from within glow.” The consistency was lightweight, spreadable, and felt like a gel-cream texture that had an emollience to it but spread without lifting up base products. I had no trouble blending out the product using a fingertip or a brush, and it worked well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation.
It was quite spreadable, so while it might have seemed more medium coverage initially, it was semi-sheer in practice and did require layering to build to more medium coverage. This formula lasted well for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.
