Vieve Sorbet Sunset Blush Review & Swatches
Vieve Sorbet Sunset Blush ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and barely-there gold pearl over a more semi-matte finish. It had opaque color coverage where a little went a long way, so it was hard to control the level of coverage, even though the brand said that it could be used with a lighter hand for more buildable pigmentation.
You’d want to buff out the color with leftover foundation (on one’s brush or sponge, etc.) to diffuse and soften the intensity, but it was very challenging to do it with a lighter-hand/less-dense brush.
The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, and on the drier side, which translated to a product that did not blend out as readily as ideal. It stayed on well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

The formula is supposed to have "high colour pay off" but be "easy to build and blend." The pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque, buildable, and I'd argue that they were pigmented enough where it wasn't "easy" to build up as the color tended to sit where initially applied and wasn't as readily spread out and diffused as top tier blush formulas are.
The finish was more satin to semi-matte, so not overtly shimmery (except one shade, at the time of review), but not a true matte finish either. The consistency was fairly soft, slightly drier and thinner, with light to moderate powderiness in the pan. It was a decent blush formula but not the most blendable and was most forgiving applied over a matte base (whether set with powder, drier skin, etc.). The thinner/drier feel made it more prone to emphasizing skin texture (like any flakiness).
Most shades lasted seven to eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.

Over an already set with powder foundation, I could see it working pretty well on my own skin depth provided I use a stippling brush and am careful. I love the actual shade quite a bit!
A lovely blush finish and a rich, beautiful shade.
