These blushes are really pigmented. I apply it in a dabbing motion or I swipe it directly on my cheeks. Then, I blend the blush on my cheeks like crazy. The shade is very buildable. You can apply one layer and this will immediately add a hint of color on your cheeks. The consistency is quite thick and creamy. Compared to NYX cream blushes (which I love to bits), these stick blushes have slightly dewy to velvety finish while NYX Cream Blushes have a very dewy finish on my skin. Although these blushes glide smoothly when applied, I have a hard time blending thenm on my cheeks esp. on top of my foundation. Lack of proper blending creates weird patches and streaks so, be careful. There was a time when I failed to blend the product well that a small lump of product accumulated on the temples of my cheeks.YAY!! The trick is to blend the product really well. Blending the product really well will not only create a natural pop of color on the cheeks but it also makes the blush lasts longer. I always apply this with the use of my fingers but I guess using brushes is much better. Since these blushes have velvety finish, this does not feel sticky at all especially when it is completely dried and blended.
It does not have a weird scent. It did not cause me any break out or rashes. Hypoallergenic .
The best thing about NYX products, they do not test on animals.
Here are the shades that I have:
This color is a cool toned pink. I am not really sure if this looks great on my NC35 skintone.
|Can you see the velvety finish? It reminds me of the NYX matte lipstick in Summer Breeze which I had previously reviewed.|
|Can you spell LOVE? I love love love this shade hehe|
|Although I have dry skin, I can not say that I will repurchase these blushes. I really prefer powdered ones. However, I do not regret buying these blushes (Orchid and Hibiscus). |
