Salt New York Rose Lip and Cheek Crème Tint ($16.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had sheer, buildable color coverage that was buildable to medium to slightly higher medium coverage with three layers.
The texture was lightweight, moderately emollient, and thin with a bit of a gel-like quality, which helped it slide and spread over my skin–even with base products–and perform well over bare skin as well as over foundation. It wore well for seven hours as a cheek color before showing some movement. As a lip product, it had similar coverage but a tendency to settle into all my lip lines, catch on texture, and disappear within two hours.
