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. Tuscan is an intensely pigmented blush where a little goes a long way. The powder is very silky and soft, but it is prone to kicking up excessive powder as it is just so soft. That softness does seem to help make it incredibly blendable and forgiving, which is key for something this bright and pigmented. On me, the blush managed to last for eight hours before fading noticeably.

This is actually a really nice cheerful looking color, very lively, too! I agree with what you stated, that the softer texture makes super brightly pigmented shades such as this one far more forgiving and most importantly, blendable.

I already have CP Fruit Stand, so I’m good, but I’m eyeing that lipstick you have on. It goes so well with the blush. Eeeeeek, and of course it’s a Tom Ford one!
