This is my first purchase from this much awaited line at Sephora. It retails for $23 and is 0.14 oz, just a tad under the weight/size of a NARS blush. Sleek shiny black packaging/trim with a clear window on top that allows you peer into your colorful goodness. It's very functional but still pretty. Betray is described as a deep plum rose. The description is very accurate as there are definitely some rose tones to this one. Sephora's swatch shows it as being more plummy. It's highly pigmented and has excellent staying power. Very silky texture for a cream blush, it glides on, and blends like a dream. As far as cream blushes go, I have tried NARS, MAC, BB, Tarte, and Becca, out of those Becca's apply easiest for me and this one surpasses even that line. I think this brand will be a real contender with MAC (re: variety & color choices), if the rest of this line's products deliver like this one. NC30-35, Shell in Chanel T.I., 120 in MUFE HD, 32 in MUFE f & b, and #3 in GA Face Fabric. I'm neutral-warm with strong yellow undertones, hazel eyes.
