Melt Cosmetics Buzz Kill Digital Dust Duo Blush Review

Buzz Kill

Melt Cosmetics Buzz Kill Digital Dust Duo Blush ($ 39.00 for 0.24 oz.) includes two blushes: a luminous, pinky-coral and a luminous, lighter, peachy-orange with faint sparkle. If you’re someone who immediately worries if something is too “glittery” as a cheek product, I’d skip this duo and consider one of the other options. Otherwise, both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Buzz

Buzz is a medium, pink-leaning coral with moderate, warm undertones and warmer, golden shimmer throughout. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered well to bare skin and blended out for a seamless finish. The powder sat well on my skin without emphasizing skin texture or pores. The consistency was dense, firmer but not stiff or difficult to work with on my skin. It wore well for nine hours before fading visibly.

Formula Overview

The formula is described as having a buildable glow–from “natural and dewy” to “intensified [and] luminous,” while brand swatches were opaque. There’s not much else said about the formula aside from that they will “never appear powdery.” The formula felt like a gel-powder hybrid, which is a type of powder formula that exists across brands and is more consistent in performance, in my experience.

The gel-powder is denser, firmer in the pan but smooth to the touch. It works best with a moderate hand or a moderately-dense brush for picking up product, and as the brand mentioned, it wasn’t powdery at all. Because there’s no excess powder kicked up, a moderately-dense brush tapped/patted onto the surface helps to pick up product most evenly.

The powder went on beautifully as it blended out nicely and had a luminous glow that could be intensified to more metallic with a second layer or if used with a dampened brush. The coverage was mostly opaqe to opaque in a single layer, while the wear ranged from eight to nine hours on me.

Kill

Kill is a light, peachy orange with strong,w arm undertones and a sparkling, luminous finish. It had more visible micro-sparkle, which was present when applied to my skin, but the sparkles had good distribution and minimal migration over time. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, though if one uses a less-dense or more feathery brush, you’ll get more semi-sheer, buildable coverage.

The texture was firmer, dense but not stiff, so while it needed a moderately-dense brush to pick up product well, I had no trouble applying to my cheeks and diffusing the edges for even coverage and a moderate glow. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
