Editor's Review

Black Up NBL 08 Blush ($26.50 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark gold with very strong, warm orange undertones and a golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had a more frosted finish compared to the other two blushes I've tried from the range, but it wasn't overly shimmery or metallic on the skin, so it did not emphasize my skin's natural texture.

The Blush formula is supposed to have "pure and intense color" that "blends to the skin." It had good pigmentation, though it was just shy of full coverage, that was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. The texture was drier in the pan, but it was loose enough to transfer onto my brush without issue. It could have been easier to diffuse and blend out on the skin, as it took more pressure to really buff out the color and even out the shimmer. On me, the blush lasted for eight hours before fading.

Editor's Note: Thank you to readers who brought this to my attention yesterday. There is controversy with respect to the founder of the brand and subsequent changes to ownership/management and how those changes transpired. Two bloggers who have done their own analysis/research can be found here (timeline and walk-through) and here (Q&A with Black|Up that specifically asks about the controversy). I will be doing my own research into over the next couple of weeks using those two posts as a starting point. I do not have any additional reviews scheduled, and I will not be adding any in the future until I've had a chance to go through any available information.
