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.

Hmmm, this looks more colorful in its pan than applied. Probably a decent shade for those with fair or very light complexions and cooler undertones: NW15 or thereabouts.
