NYX Cream Blush Swatches


Hey Guys!
I have a little obsession with NYX Cream Blushes. I thought now would be the perfect time to share swatches of my obsession as Cherry Culture is having a 20% off sale on the ENTIRE website until March 15th. Did I mention NYX cream blushes are also currently $1.00 off. That means, instead of paying $6.50 US you are paying $5.50 minus 20%. That's $4.40 each! 












NYX Cream Blushes are long wearing, pigmented, blendable, and generally just an amazing quality cream blush for an affordable price. I honestly can't say enough good things about these. Some of the blushes are sheer, but they are intended to be "natural". If I were to pass on one blush I would say skip Boho Chic as it is a bit too sheer for my liking. Rose Petal I've had the longest (as you can see I've used it multiple times prior to swatching). Also, Rose Petal and Orange are a thicker consistency than the other blushes. I must say I like the thicker consistency better, but noticed that the two thicker consistency blushes contain Mica (which I'm sensitive to), but I haven't had trouble yet. I'm assuming this is because Mica isn't one of the first two ingredients. Also, I've been looking FOREVER for a hot pink cream blush and must say that NYX "Hot Pink" is everything I've been waiting for. I think it will look amazing for the warmer months when I'm rocking my self tan. Also, I find it hard finding a good "Orange" blush without it pulling coral. The NYX cream blush in "Orange" is a straight up vibrant orange. I'm also really excited to find this!

I ended up ordering NYX Cream Blush is Tan, Tea Rose, and Golden so I'm excited to try those. I think there is only 3 left that I will not own, but they don't particularly interest me. I also ended up purchasing the Beauty Blender Double Duo Kit. I've always wanted to try the Beauty Blender, and for 20% off, my purchase is justified. LOL

  10. I went to Ulta today and checked them out.. The colors are nice especially "Natural", but they feel SO sticky! lol But I puchased Ibiza bronzer&blusher duo and I'm in loveeee! Sunrise in Bali was awesome as well. The blusher part looked like Orgasm by Nars but the bronzer is way too dark for me otherwise Id have gotten it. Theyre like 9 bux :D
