Anastasia Soft Rose Stick RougeAnastasia Soft Rose Stick Rouge ($ 32.00 for 0.28 oz.) Is a muted, medium dark pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was light, pliable with a thinner, gel-like glide, but it dried to a more powder-like finish that was mostly matte and got a bit of my skin’s natural finish through.
It had medium buildable pigmentation when I applied it with a synthetic brush, and the coverage was more semi-opaque and buildable when I applied it with my fingertips (that’s how I usually apply cream and liquid blush). The product was applied evenly and blends well on bare skin and foundation, as it does not lift my base products. It took a good eight hours before it visibly faded.

The formula is said to have a “natural looking color” with a “seamless finish” paired with a “buildable and mixable” formula that can range from a “sheer wash to a more intense, livelier pop”.
The consistency was slightly emollient, thin, and glides well, but dried quickly and had a powdery finish. I felt like I had enough time to work the product cheek by cheek and I had no problem applying it to bare skin or over foundation. I think the lack of shimmer / shine made the Stick Blush formula easier to work with than the Stick Highlighter formula.
The cream rouges lasted between seven and eight hours.
