Cult Favorite: Kosas Cosmetics High Intensity Color and Light Palette

It’s no secret that I love Kosas. Even before I received PR from them, I have been buying their products with my own money. I started with Stardust Weightless Lipcolor and even reviewed and raved about it. Over time, I have built on my Kosas stash, even having their other shades of lip colors and using their Color & Light Palettes every day.

I love cream makeup products so, I bought 8th Muse as soon as it came out a few years ago. As expected, it’s the perfect rosy glow for my skin. It’s a subtle blush that is good for daytime, giving you a brighter and rosier complexion. It’s not a question that 8th Muse High Intensity is the first shade I tried when I received the Color & Light High Intensity palettes.

High Intensity are the super pigmentations versions of their blush and highlighter duos, which is actually great because from time to time, I actually enjoy a strong punch of color in my cheeks.

When kosas said high intensity, they weren’t kidding. With the old cream blush and highlight duo, I have to dab my brush a couple of times to get the color that suits my skin. Out of habit, I did that with the High Intensity Cream Duos and wow, I have to really spread the product out.

These duos are strong and really pigmented. I always love the creamy consistency of their blushes and highlighters so this is an easy love for me. Despite the new pigmentation formula, the creaminess and the ability for these duos to look natural on the skin never changed. I’m just really happy about it.

Of course, 8th Muse High Intensity has become a mainstay in my makeup routine before going to work, for a deeper pink blush and a rosier glow. I also enjoyed using Velvet Melon High Intensity since I’ve been into peachy looks lately.

However, as someone who has and cream/liquid blush bias, I only have the original Longitude Zero, a pink rose powder blush and highlighter duo, that I like to use if I know my day is going to be longer than usual.

The shades of all the powders are a couple of tones higher. It’s especially noticeable in Longitude Zero because the highlighter in Longitude Zero High Intensity is pinker and, like all the powder duos, a tad deeper than the original.

Both still offer shades that I think works for a variety of skin tones, the powder finish is still the same, and the blendability is still similar to the original.
