Tester: West Indian (Jamaican) about Sanna Lathan’s complexion with combination/dry skin.
“If you have ever been to the south western part of the United States -- Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada e.g. then you have seen the beautiful cactus flora that abound there. This color really is a beautiful interpretation of these.
This is a unique poppy shade (pink, orange, peach, coral are all prominent shades within it) with touches of subtle gold shimmer running throughout. Really pretty.
I usually applied it with my blender sponge, but I also had good results with my fingers as well as my cream blush brush (MAC 169). I found the color could be built up nicely, and there was great pigment color payoff. The staying power was also phenomenal. There was no running or streaking. I also loved using it along with a bronzer.
It gave me a beautiful glow I played around with it using it also on my lips and eyes. On my lips I just added a little lip balm first as the formula is dry, and then topped it off with one of my favorite lip glosses, NARS Turkish Delight. It’s a color that is really sexy and sultry to me, while still being a little unexpected.
This shade instantly brightened up my entire face, giving me a healthy "coming-from-within" swash of color. This will work on a wide variety of skin tones, best up to a Serena Williams shade.“ L.V.
