Kiko Velvet Stick Blush was another gift from Lily. It's a twist up cheek color with a dome shaped tip (and a lot of plastic packaging for a small and no-frill product). The dome blush has a vanilla (kind of like MAC lipstick) scent and a harder formula (or is it just the New Jersey weather?) that offers strong dose of pigment.
I would call it a "cheek stain" for the strong dose color, while it also gives a teeny bit of matte finish (the kind I feel with the standard Canmake cream cheek but less foggy). Anyway, the blush stick is easy to apply and spread since it doesn't dry into a streak the moment you glide it on.
Peony looks like a unique enough reddish coral in my small cream blush stash. Blended out, it appears to be a natural flush that last for a whole 10+hr day (on my bare skin). Next time I will try it with some concealer...Since it kind of made me look windblown for a whole day.
