At first I was unsure whether this would be flattering, as brick or rust tones often don't work well on me (like, for example, MAC's Margin blush--beautiful in the pan--not so much on my face). I figured I would be safe purchasing this, though, because applying more of the beautiful pale iridescent peach shade would offset any potential ruddy tones from the darker shade.
After using it today, I found that the darker half is easily wearable when applied with a light hand. It is a well-pigmented terracotta shade with a soft sheen that lights up the skin. I love that this product combines a highlighter and blush in one convenient package.
Shape the Future complements warmer looks particularly well. I plan to pair it with light peachy lip colors, along with gold, amber, bronze and copper eye looks. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Shape the Future and would recommend it to those who enjoy wearing warm-toned blushes.
