Fusion beauty is one of those brands I’ve never really bothered with, since I rarely wear the work safe colors, and I don’t need the anti-aging and lip plumping products that seem to form most of their lineup. $29 is VERY expensive for a product that isn’t absolutely necessary. A bit back, I cashed in some of the points I had at sephora for a fusion set, and gave it a try, though. In the Flesh is a beautiful creamy nude. There’s a touch of rose to it, but it looks like more of a mauve or brown to me. It has a velvety smooth finish with no shimmer. It feels pretty moisturizing to me, but it doesn’t really affect the lips for long, once it has worn off. The initial gloss fades fairly fast, but it is still visible on my lips after 4 hours. It DOES seem to smooth my lips a bit, though I wouldn’t say the effect is really noticeable.
I got even better wear out of it layered under another lipstick(It looks BEAUTIFUL over MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #18 for a nude coral). Be forewarned though-that seemed to affect the way it absorbed into the lips. It didn’t seem to plump, over the lipstick, and it seemed to negate the moisturizing feeling.
It has a fairly thick texture, and one dip of the wand should get you through the application. There’s a nice pigmentation level, and while the natural lip color peeks through, the overall tone is smoothed, and glossy.
This is it over a pearly coral lipstick.
