Lisa Eldridge Pink Soap Invigorating blush ($ 34.00 for 0.5 oz.) Is a medium pink with muted, warm undertones and a natural finish. It looked like moisturized skin – slightly shiny, but not wet or shiny – when it was dried. It had a translucent, buildable pigmentation as marketed when a very small amount was worked on (that was as recommended by the brand). The texture was smooth, light and creamy with more density / thickness and less water compared to the other colors I tried in the series.
The blush was applied evenly to bare skin and over the foundation because it doesn’t lift the base products and was easy to shimmer out for an even layer of product. I was able to build up color without the initial layer picking up or becoming uneven. It took a good eight hours before it faded noticeably.

The formula is said to be buildable, although the brand advises using the “smallest dot” to create a “translucent ‘flush inside’ effect”. It can be applied and blended with fingertips or a foundation brush. The finish is described as “natural, skin-like” that is not “too dewy or too dull”.
Of the colors tested so far, the formula can be built up from semi-transparent to largely opaque, and it was easy to apply more if necessary. The needle-shaped applicator allowed a lot of control, so that you could approach the “smallest” amount as recommended.
The texture was light, moderately emollient, and dried to a natural to soft matte finish; one shade appeared semi-matt (if not flat / dry) on my skin and the other was softer in the tube and therefore a little more watery on my skin. Apply the product evenly with the fingertip on bare skin or over the foundation and blend with little force. They tended to stand out for what was marketing, so they were more foolproof to work with.
It was a more transfer resistant formula. The blush lasted between eight and nine hours on me before it showed any signs of fading.
