Colour Pop Whole Nine Yards Pressed Powder Blush ($10.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and larger, gold micro-sparkle over a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly powdery texture that seemed a touch drier to the touch, though it didn’t read dry or dusty when applied to my skin.
This shade wasn’t quite as blendable as would be ideal, so I’d recommend applying it over powdered (or more matte) skin to ensure it didn’t stick too strongly to any particular area during the initial lay down of product. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
