Natasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Blush Serum Review & Swatches

Darya

Natasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Liquid Blush SerumNatasha Denona Darya Puff Paint Liquid Blush Serum ($22.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a natural finish. It wasn’t quite dewy, but it had a hydrated, natural sheen that wasn’t tacky and fairly transfer-resistant (but not transfer-proof!).

It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation (as marketed), which layered well on itself or applied on top of foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting up base products or the initial layer of blush. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, and thin but spreadable, blendable, and very forgiving to work with. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.23 oz. - $95.65 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "mistake-proof" with "easy and even blending" that is "buildable" and "can be layered" for greater coverage. Per the brand, it can be applied with a "fluffy brush or using your fingers." The pigmentation was semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage that was easy to work with using a stippling brush or fingertips.

I prefer applying liquid and cream-based formulas with a fingertip and often use one finger (like my index) for initial tapping of color onto the area, and then my middle or ring finger to blend and diffuse. The formula worked well on bare skin as well as over foundation, as it glided on, blended out well, but wasn't prone to lifting up base products or "sinking" into my pores.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and spreadable without becoming patchy. It dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish, but it retained a natural sheen to it that looked like hydrated, glowing skin (but not dewy). They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading a bit.

Christine, in your opinion, how does this liquid blush compare to the original Darya blush specifically?
I recall you mentioned several times that ND’s Darya was one of your favorites and that you petitioned the company to make it permanent – I’d love to know how this liquid blush stacks up in your estimation 🙂

The formula is pretty different; the serum is a lot lighter/thinner in a way. They are both really lovely formulas, though 🙂

Lovely soft, warm pink! I’ll have to see if Alicia or Tara Lynn reviews it so that I can get an idea of whether this shade would work on my skintone.

Apart from being a very popular coral shade, for a liquid blush, I like the application brush. I think it would be much easier to apply than those where you have to rely on your fingertips. It looked really pretty on you Christine.
