Longitude Zero (High Intensity)

Kosas Longitude Zero (High Intensity) Color and Light Pressed Palette ($34.00 for 0.28 oz.) features “double” the pigment with a deeper pink blush paired with a darker, pinky-beige highlighter. Both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing; they were easy to work with, and while the formula has more powderiness to it than seems ideal, they actually looked fantastic on my skin as they were almost smoothing.

Longitude Zero (High Intensity) (Blush)

Longitude Zero (High Intensity) (Blush) is a deep pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage that could be built up to full pigmentation with less than half of a layer. The texture was soft, lightly powdery in the pan (almost dry to the touch), but it applied evenly, blended out with ease, and looked way more flattering over skin–not dry or powdery at all–after it was blended. I love being surprised–in a good way–upon actual application. It lasted well for nine hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

The formula offers two levels of intensity–a standard level and a “High Intensity” version–that allows the customer to pick the level of pigmentation and depth desired. The standard intensity offers “buildable, blendable” blush and highlighter that is “easy-to-apply,” while the “High Intensity” offers “double color payoff.”

The texture of the blush seemed drier, more powdery, but I was surprised–and impressed!–by how beautifully the powders applied, blended, and sat on my skin. They went on with almost no effort at all with an even lay down of color that diffused easily along the edges, didn’t look flat or dry on, and were fairly true-to-color.

The pigmentation of the standard intensity level was more medium to semi-opaque, buildable coverage, while the pigmentation of the High Intensity versions were nearly opaque to opaque and were a bit darker/deeper in tone overall. The majority of the shades lasted between eight and nine hours on me.

Longitude Zero (High Intensity) (Highlighter)

Longitude Zero (High Intensity) (Highlighter) is a medium, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edges without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.

The powder had a soft, moderately powdery consistency–use a lighter hand to avoid too much excess kicked up in the pan–that “melted” on my skin for a seamless application. This shade wore nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
