Colourpop’s Blush Stix in Flamenco

This is a sheer soft pink / light red. It’s not baby- or ballet-pink, more like “tulip-pink”. It’s a neutral-ish pink - no strong warm or cool tones. These blush stix are firm enough that it isn’t easy to draw on a line of color and then blend it out. I have had best results either pressing and twisting a row of spots and then blending those, or picking up product on a brush as if this were in a pan or pot rather than stick form.
