FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours. Tuscan is an intensely pigmented blush where a little goes a long way. The powder is very silky and soft, but it is prone to kicking up excessive powder as it is just so soft. That softness does seem to help make it incredibly blendable and forgiving, which is key for something this bright and pigmented. On me, the blush managed to last for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set
Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes three palettes, plus a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. Each palette contains six eyeshadows and a face product (either a blush or bronzer). It’s a decent set with some hits and misses, and in general, there was just a dustiness/powderiness to some shades that resulted in either slightly sheerer color payoff or shorter wear time (things that a decent primer should fix quite well).

Amour is a pale pink with neutral-to-warm undertones. It had good pigmentation, was very lightly dusty, and lasted for seven hours. Anastasia Blanc (P, $12.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Oui is a blackened brown with subtle, cool undertones and gold sparkle.

NYX Nude ‘tude HD Blush

NYX Nude 'tude (02)  HD Blush
NYX Nude ‘tude (02) HD Blush

NYX Nude ‘tude (02) HD Blush ($6.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a meduim brown with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. MAC Matte Bronze (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Bon Voyage (P, $8.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Golden Rinse (LE, $35.50) is warmer (95% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Desert Days (P, $48.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay Video (P, $26.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours. Nude ‘tude is semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a really soft, silky texture that practically crumbled when a brush touched it, so there was a lot of excess powder in the pan. If you are very fair, you may find it easy to over-apply as a lot of product gets on the brush if you aren’t careful. The blush is finely-milled, though, which makes it easy to blend out on the skin, and it doesn’t look powdery on. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek & Leopard Pressed Pigment

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “true gold.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish–pretty much just as the brand described it. The texture was smooth, creamy, and a cinch to blend out on the skin. I love that the formula can be used over foundation without disturbing your base products. The coverage is semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how much you apply initially or with what, which is in line with what the formula is supposed to be. The color was going strong after ten hours of wear. NARS Jubilation (Left) (P) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Dior Transatlantique (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Sephora Jubilant (21) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Oh, Darling!

ColourPop Leopard Super Shock Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vivid violet blue.” It’s a meidum-dark purple with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, and it was blendable along the edges, but the texture was dry and prone to crumbling when I applied too much pressure on it. Pressed Pigments are “not intended for the eye area,” so keep that in mind 🙂 I wore it as a blush, and it lasted for nine hours. Colour Pop Liaison (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Urban (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Ultraviolet (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Daddy (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar).

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette
bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette

bareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette ($39.00 for 0.65 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, two blushes, one highlighter, and one bronzer. The palette has $56.47 worth of eyeshadow, $15.33 worth of blush, $7.20 worth of highlighter, and $8.00 worth of bronzer for a total value of $87.00. I liked it, though it’s not quite as impressive as most of the Ready palettes are (they are nearly perfect), and one aspect that I really appreciated was that one row of eyeshadows was warmer and one row was cooler (though not truly cool-toned). The palette is also slim, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Natural is described as a “light buttery peach.” It’s a light, yellowed beige with a semi-matte finish. It had so-so color coverage, but the texture was firmer and thinner compared to the other shades in the palette (and from the Ready line overall). The color lasted for 10 hours (Ready formula is marketed as a 12-hour formula). This version is a lot lighter and much less warm compared to the previous version I tried. bareMinerals Magnate (LE) is warmer (95% similar).

Cognac is described as a “gilded bronze.” It’s a medium, golden copper bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented, rich and buttery in texture, blended effortlessly, and lasted twelve hours on me. Make Up For Ever ME644 Iced Brown (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Namaste is described as a “sandy brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of gray and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that wasn’t too powdery and blended nicely on the skin. It lasted for eleven hours on me.
