NYX Powder Blush



The blushes are highly pigmented they are usually matte, which is nice because most other brands seem to have satin or shimmer. One point to note is that because these blushes are so pigmented, so you can go overboard quite easily. Also, it never accentuates my pores or looks chalky, so that is a plus.

The blush stays on well. It lasts about 6-7 hours and during the summer about 5-6 hours.

It costs $6 for 0.2oz of product, which is a good especially when compared to MAC’s blush prices. You do get a lot of product for what you’re paying. Also, on sides like cherryculture.com, there are often sales. There are 19 shades to choose from, so you do have plenty of choice.

The packaging is like the eyeshadow packaging, which although is not very glamorous, it is very solid. It comes in a square pan with a quilted surface. It has a clear window which allows you to see the colour of the blush, which is great when you have too many! Plastic is used for the packaging. Also, it is rather compact so easy to carry in your purse.

The only thing I would say that not too great is that these blushes are a bit on the powdery side, so the powder gets scattered around the ages.

Swatches:



Left to right: silky rose, natural, peach, taupe  and  dusty rose 

As you can see, natural and peach are too light for my skin tone (NW25). Also, I use taupe for contouring.
