It’s so nice when you find a budget-friendly product that really performs well! That is the case with Electro. It was richly pigmented paired with a soft, smooth consistency that was easily blended out along the edges for a diffused application. If you prefer subtler blush, I’d recommend using a fan brush or duo-fiber brush, which will allow you to apply less product, and a lighter hand, as a little does go a long way. On me, the blush wore well for eight hours before fading along the edges.

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.

This is exactly the kind of pink I want when I’m really tired, to perk up my face!

NYX has only just debuted at Boots (drugstore) in the UK, so I should be able to pick this up in the near future. Yay.

As a lonnngtime fan of Nyx, I am really happy to see that *most* of their new formula blushes perform exceptionally well with great pigmentation! This is a fiercely bright one, and I like it!
