Kosa's 8th Muse (Blush) Cream Blush

8. Muse

Kosa's 8th Muse color and light palette ($ 34.00 for 0.32 oz.) Is the sheer, more buildable version of the color tone and contains a delicate pink blush paired with a pearlescent, light pink highlighter.

The shades provided a semi-transparent, somewhat buildable cover with a creamy, softening formula that dried to a more skin-like finish that lasted for about eight hours.

8. Muse

8. Muse is a medium, rosy pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish that hardly seemed to have a pearl (just enough to make it look skin-like after fading out). When applied and faded out, the product dried out so it didn't have a shiny finish.

The consistency was light, thinner and creamy with a lot of slip initially. It had medium coverage when applied (and it was marketed as more buildable coverage) because the product was hidden immediately after application and spreading, which I think is typical of Creme Blush. It stayed good for eight hours before it faded noticeably on me.

Formula overview

– –

Each hue in the area has two levels of color intensity. Each shade has a "High Intensity" version that offers "twice as much pigment" as the normal shade (which has a less intense, "buildable" coverage). The formula is intended to provide an "easy-to-apply, mixable" blush that is combined with a "complementary" highlighter.

In my experience, the high intensity version offered more pigmentation, but also a more saturated representation of the color scheme. It felt more like a certain color combination would work for both lighter and deeper skin tones, rather than just doubling the pigment. The regular shades were semi-transparent to medium-sized and buildable. The high intensity hues definitely had a higher coverage and were typically semi-opaque to opaque.

The consistency was creamy with moderate slip and felt like a traditional cream brush (wet to touch, smooth and thin). They are mostly easy to apply to bare skin and over primer, although some shades could have been easier to work with foundation products. The shimmering hues (like highlighters) felt a bit smoother than cream-colored hues (like blush).

Since it is a creamier product, they shimmer well during use and can be mixed well. Therefore, a second layer must often be applied to increase the opacity (instead of applying more) if a higher opacity is desired (less required for high shades).

The formula dried out for the most part, but didn't look completely flat or matt. As a result, they did not slide around easily on my skin when worn. Most of the colors showed signs of fading after seven to eight hours of wear, which for me are most cheek colors.

8. Muse (highlighter)

8. Muse (highlighter) is a light pink with strong, warm undertones and a bright shine. It had a pure to semi-transparent cover that could be built on a middle cover with a second layer. With cream-colored blush, especially with smoother formulas like this, it works best in bare layers and with a second layer, rather than applying more in one layer.

The consistency was creamy, light and thin with moderate slippage, which worked well on bare skin, but was not so easily applied to the foundation. I just felt like I had to be gentler to avoid lifting my base products with the highlighter formula in a duo, but I was able to do it successfully. This shade worked well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.
