So I never knew how to use a blush until last year. Then I watched YouTube videos by gossmakeupartist and pixi2woo. I still didn’t exactly get how I could use a blusher appropriate for my pale and round face. But I really wanted to try. I took to cream blushes to start with simply because I had failed too many times with powder blushes. I was tempted to buy the Mac cream blush in posey but I discovered the nyx brand first. The nyx cream blushes were the first nyx product I tried and oh boy! I have never looked back.
I love these!!
Left to right: natural, glow, tea rose
The formula is super creamy, very pigmented and very easy to blend.
I always use my finger to pick up a small amount of product and blend with finger tips. Makes my skin look amazingly healthy and dewy without using a highlighter. It’s got just the right amount of dewiness but the end look is not at all greasy (and I have oily combination skin). This was an instant hit for me also because I hate the powdery/chalky look some powder blushes can give. Also the cream formula gives you higher level of control on how and where you want to place your blush based on your face shape. The lasting power is about 4-6 hours depending on your skin type. For super oily skin, it would be advisable to set with translucent loose powder (like MUFE HD powder) to make it last longer.
From top to bottom: natural, glow, tea rose
I love all 3 shades equally
Natural is a pale natural pink very suitable for nc/nw 15-25 skin tone.
Glow is a brighter pink and can be used on all skin tones based on how much product you use.
Tea rose is a peachy neutral color for girls who don’t always like the idea of pink makeup. Also a perfect shade when you want to play up the eyes or lips and need nothing overpowering on the cheeks.
If you are a makeup newbie and are looking to try out different blushes to find the one that suits you best, these are absolutely fabulous. Also perfect for those on a budget cos when I swatched the Mac cream blushes I saw no difference.
WHERE TO BUY?
At a price point of US$6-8 per piece, these are a steal. Get them from cherryculture.com (worldwide shipping) or eBay from a seller called joy’s cosmetics.
