Vieve Pesca Sunset Blush ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a lighter bright orange with moderate warm undertones and a satin finish. This one had a slightly more visible glow compared to the other blushes in the range. The texture was soft, smooth and blendable – it was one of the best performing shades I’ve tried from the brand in this formula.
It had an opaque color coverage as marketed that applied evenly to bare skin and spread well. It stayed good for eight hours before fading a bit.

The formula is said to have “high color payoff” but be “easy to build and mix.” The pigmentation was semi-opaque to opaque, buildable, and I would argue that they were adequately pigmented where it wasn’t “easy” to build up, as the color tended to sit where it was originally applied and not itself spread as easily as premium blush formulas are.
The finish was more of a satin to semi-matte finish, so not overtly shimmery (other than one shade at the time of review), but not a truly matte finish either. The consistency was quite soft, slightly drier and thinner, with slight to moderate powderiness in the pan. It was a decent blush formula, but not the most blendable, and was most forgiving when applied over a matte base (whether with powder, dry skin, etc.). The thinner/drier feel made it more prone to emphasizing skin texture (like any flaking).
Most shades lasted seven to eight hours on me before showing any signs of fading.
