Lisa Eldridge Pink Poetry invigorating blush ($ 34.00 for 0.5 oz.) Is a vibrant touch of pink coral with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It resulted in semi-transparent to medium buildable pigmentation, depending on how much was applied; The brand recommended using a fairly small amount, which I did for swatches and achieved a sheer, hard-to-over-exaggerate type of coverage. I was able to build up the coverage by going back and tapping on additional product (not much) where I wanted (e.g. apples).
The texture was slightly creamy, smooth, and felt less wet compared to some other shades; I’ve found the texture to vary noticeably from shade to shade, with some being thinner, almost watery, and others denser and velvety / creamy in comparison. Nevertheless applied like the other colors; There were no problems working over bare skin or foundation. It lasted well for eight hours before it faded noticeably on my skin.
I asked a few readers if there were any issues squeezing the product out of the tubes, and most of them I had no issues, but Pink Poetry was difficult (and hasn’t improved) from the start.

The formula is said to be buildable, although the brand recommends using the “smallest dot” to start with for a “translucent ‘flush inside’ effect”. It can be applied and blended with fingertips or a foundation brush. The finish is described as “natural, skin-like” that is not “too dewy or too dull”.
Of the colors tested so far, the formula can be built up from semi-transparent to largely opaque, and it was easy to apply more if necessary. The needle applicator allowed a lot of control, so that you could approach the “smallest” amount as recommended.
The texture was light, moderately emollient, and dried to a natural to soft matte finish; one shade appeared semi-matt (if not flat / dry) on my skin and the other was softer in the tube and therefore a little more watery on my skin. Apply the product evenly with your fingertip on bare skin or over the foundation and blend with little force. They tended to stand out for what was marketing, so they were more foolproof to work with.
It was a more transfer resistant formula. The blush lasted between eight and nine hours on me before it showed any signs of fading.
