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.
