This was one of the more shimmery shades in the HD Blush round-up that I’ve tried so far. It’s definitely not frosted, though, and it has a very luminous sheen on the skin as the shimmer is fine. The blush was richly pigmented with a soft, silky texture that applied well to the skin and blended out with ease. It was just a smidgen powdery, but it was so much better than a lot of the other shades in the range! When I tested it, the color stayed on well for eight hours before fading.

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.

It had good pigmentation, and finally, a shade that wasn’t terribly powdery. The consistency was still soft, smooth, and fairly blendable (but it takes some patience and a light touch to get even application). Crimson is quite pigmented with a soft shimmer to it that becomes more pronounced as you buff it into the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Cool Taupe is a medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish.

This blush had that unfortunate powdery consistency I have found all too common in this range, which is really the formula’s biggest downfall! (Such a shame, too!) The color payoff is mostly opaque, and it is easily sheered out or blended along the edges or built-up in layers without looking powdery on the skin. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

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).
