The Luxe Color Blush formula is supposed to be a “silky” powder that is “long-lasting and fade-proof.” It had semi-opaque coverage that was easily sheered out if desired, and it could be layered for true-to-pan color (though it is a lighter shade, so it may not work for all skin tones). The texture was soft, finely-milled, and blendable on the skin. It didn’t look cakey or powdery, despite being more matte. This one seemed the most matte out of the three I bought to review. I also noticed that this shade darkened one to two shades compared to the pan when I applied it to the skin. The blush stayed on well for seven and a half hours on me before fading a bit.

This one looks really pretty on you, Christine. When I saw the pan, I thought the colour would be too pale and better suited to fairer skin, but the darkening is rather freaky and fortuitous. I think it looks wonderful.

Thank you, Wendy! I find that a lot of the more matte blushes, especially if they are thinner/smoother, seem to darken a bit on the skin (it makes sense to me since most powder eyeshadows will darken if you use a damp brush, so I assume natural skin oils=darkening).

My thoughts exactly! I might get this one or another one from the same range, since all three of them performed so well here.

No I do not like peaches either, but this is A different peach! 🙂 I checked out other swatches and this will be the one!
Zoeva must be the only brand reviewed here that is easy accessible for me and not so easy for people in the USA. I will order a brush too, I’ve got one already that is quite decent for the price.

This shade looks gorgeously summery on you, Christine! It’s a pretty one, but yes, definitely for light-medium or lighter skintones as your disclaimer stated. I doubt that this one would show up well on me. Which is fine since MAC Spring Flock gives my NC37-40 cheeks the same exact look as this does for you. Love my Spring Flock!!! Wish it was a permanent shade, though….?

Wow, really gorgeous peach color! It looks so beautiful on you! I’ll have to keep this one in mind in case I ever give in to my Zoeva wish list.

Think the face photo looks surprisingly pink, compared to the arm swatch. That’s more surprising than the darkening. Gorgeous, nonetheless. I think the flat rate shipping is getting mor reasonable daily, as the Zoeva list expands. Very nice. I think I read that S pulled the $#!++Â¥ kvd blushes. Maybe they’ll get a redo. I liked H &G, but not with that app/ grade. Did Kimberly Clark say that? The dog clunked the inside of my lip, and I had to lie down with an ice cube all day. Why not watch KC? Laughed my patootie off. Even her name is hysterical. But I do think that the kvd blushes are gone. Certainly they could improve! But the colors, as w/ virtually all kvd, were great.

I actually own this one. A UK online company Beautybay sell Zoeva. I ordered some brushes, decided to try the blush as well. Its a lovely inexpensive blush, wearable and I tend to forget I have it. It gets lost in my mound of other ones.

Ohhhh?????. I had really come to enjoy ur reviews on these zoeva luxe blushes and was deciding which ones to buy. A pale paechy shade is missing in my stash… I thought this might be it. But the fact that it darkens a bit after application…. It put me off!!!!
