Product & Colour:
NYX High Definition Blush in HDB22 Taupe is a cool ashy tone taupe brown with a smooth texture. I found this shades could be built up and easily sheered out if you wanted a subtle contour shade.

Wear: For about 10 hours before noticing any fading.

Packaging: Is a basic plastic compact with a clear lid window.

Compare:
High Definition Blush in HDB22 Taupe is a cool tone compared to the two coolest shades in the NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette Sculpt which is a rosy tone taupe and Hollow is a deep neutral brown by comparison.

Highlight & Contour Pro Palette Sculpt is a closer tone to the original Taupe blush NYX put out as a possible colour dupe.
Verdict
I love this tone. I know that those fair girls with pink undertone don't like how this shade looks on their skin because it read to ashy on the. But for me and my olive/yellow undertones this look more natural and for those with light to medium warm or neutral undertones, I can see your skin might like this one.

For those that need a bit more rosiness the Highlight & Contour Pro Palette Sculpt single pan I recommend as a dupe for the old Taupe Blush.

  1. Great info, thanks! I wanted this blush specifically for contour but I hadn't heard of it being used that way & I didn't know if it'd be too warm toned but I'm happy to hear that's not the case.
    Also I think you mistakenly wrote lipstick tube in the packaging description.

    1. Yeah I think it's great that it's even cooler toned then the original Taupe Blush.

      Technically I just forgot to update the packaging section, Oops!
