Bite Beauty has reformulated and is shipping out the reformulated version of Shade #001 to customers who purchased the shade. It’s an impressive move, even if the reformulated version isn’t stellar (I’ll let you know when I get mine!), because it’s always nice to see a brand listen to their customers and react appropriately.

You can find my original review here. Updated: Reader Julie just let me know that Shade #001 is also back in stock and it’s gone!

NYX Beach Babe HD Blush
NYX Beach Babe HD Blush

NYX Beach Babe HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a brightened, gold-shimmered brown with warm, reddish-yellow undertones and a frosted finish. Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $45.00) is less red. Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (P) is slightly darker. Too Faced Sun Bunny #2 (P) is lighter. Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is darker. Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is darker. MAC Global Glow (P, $30.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It was nicely pigmented with color that could be applied at true-to-pan intensity. The texture was soft with a fairly silky feel that didn’t get too powdery–the least powdery shade I’ve tested so far from the new HD range–that blended easily on the skin. I also found that despite seeming rather shimmery when swatched, the finish is softer and more luminous than a true frost on the skin. It seemed to buff and diffuse especially well in practice. When I wore this blush (or bronzer), it stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading.

Temptalia's AnswerI just saw a smidgen of pan come through on my Burberry Trench eyeshadow, though it’s nowhere near finished.
