Product:
There were two very different formulas being produced with these powders, the shade The Princess Daiquiries which I bought locally and the other shade sold locally was the In a Purple Haze looked matte in the pan at the store, and The Princess Daiquiries applied matte as a blush in the case of I'm reviewing here. It a powdery matte meaning it not dry to apply thankfully, but this is a very pale pigmented product that could only work on pale assed skin like mine without turning ashing and deeper skin tones.

I ordered the shades Mai Tai Buy You a Drink and In a Purple Haze from the Wet Wild website from LA and the formula is a much truer satin finish that is softer to work with from the pans and smoother to apply to the skin. The finish of these is much more glowy compared to The Princess Daiquiries which is matte. These two shades are more like a coloured glow powder. The pigments used are still way too light so the colour still would be a pale blush, But the formula works better as a tinted highlighter much in the same vein as the KEVYN AUCOIN The Neo Highlighter and The Neo Limelight Highlighter just a little bit subtle in the shimmer department.

Colour:
Mai Tai Buy You a Drink is a pale apricot to pale orange with a satin finish.
The Princess Daiquiries is a pale peach to pale pink with a matte finish.
In a Purple Haze is a pale mauve to pale lavender with a satin finish.

Wear: I get 5-6 hours bare skin and longer with a foundation.

Packaging: Is a simple square plastic compact with a clear lid.

Verdict
I'm really disturbed by the change in formula I recommend to double check the of the product finish because the ones I saw that look matte where not the satin glow finish I enjoyed with the other shades I got directly from Wet n Wild. Those were nice for a subtle blush/ highlighter tinted shades.

But the main issue is that it's neither an ombre blush or even as a blush at all with the pale pigmentation and the shades being very similar to each other in the pan. If the pan colours were 3 shades dark to a light of medium colour, they would be so much more flattering on a number of skin tones (but still not any would be a deep skin option). Ombre blushes were designed for colour draping, and these just don't have enough colour to work that way at all.
