Sorry that the blush doesn't look picture perfect. I had to try this blush instantly when I bought it. Often times, picture taking comes second, lol. I don't mind that you see the blush in this messy state. In fact, it's important that you see this side of the product. The name of the blush will lead you to believe that once you touch it, it will bounce back into its dome shape. Not so much. It moves around like play dough. It doesn't keep neatly in its pot.
Swipe on the finger.I was hoping the picture would show you that I didn't pick up a lot of product on this finger after one full swipe.
Left, one swipe; right, heavy swatch
Overall, the product behavior in the pan didn't turn me away from this product. I love this blush! Lately, I've been doing the less is more look and this falls right into the scheme of things. I nice little glow on my cheeks, not an oily glow, but a polished makeup glow. This product also has the teensiest bit of shimmer, but barely noticeable.
