Lethal Cosmetics Echinopsis Magnetic Face Powder (Blusher) ($ 14.00 for 0.18 oz.) Is a lighter, rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation ranging from medium to opaque (two to three coats) with a smooth consistency that was neither too tight nor too soft pressed into the pan, making it well picked up with a brush and easy to control. The blush was applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well around the edges. It stayed good for eight and a half hours before visibly fading.

The formula should “effortlessly” and “structurally” merge into a “shiny matt” finish and “any intensity with ease”. Generally they had a medium buildable cover that was easy to build into a mostly opaque to opaque cover.
According to the brand, instead of swirling the brush, which I would agree, they recommend “tapping” to pick up more buildable pigment – swirling or heavier movements could all at once result in more opaque coverage (which might be desirable).
The texture was moderately dense, smooth, and neither powdery nor too tightly pressed into the pan, so the product was well picked up with both feathered and denser brushes.
When I applied the powder and buffed it onto my skin, they had a semi-matte to natural matte finish – not flat or dry, but not overly shimmering either. They looked “more melted” on my skin, which gave them a better and more flattering finish. They lasted between eight and nine hours before visibly fading.
