MY experience with Rouge Cream Blush Boho Chic
- Packaging: This blush comes in a pot with a see-through flip top lid. The lid is a a plastic one and although its sturdy, I would suggest not to put much pressure on it since it may come off.
- Pigmentation: Like most blushes in this range, this is highly pigmented and just a single swipe is sufficient for a cheek. The blush is intensely creamy and buildable. This is good for starters to use since its not easy to go over board with this.
- Staying Power: This shade tends to fade in about 5hrs or so leaving a pinkish tinge on my cheeks. Even thought it fades pretty evenly, I still wish it would last longer
- Application: As with all cream blushes, this can be applied either by using your fingers, a Qtip or with a brush. I use a Q-tip with this and dab about 3-4 times over the apple of my cheeks. Then I pat with my fingers, blending the blush into my skin. This ensures that the distribution of product is even and smooth.
- Cost & Availability: These blushes have very limited availability here in India. Even then, the stores which carry NYX may not have all 12 shades available. Wrt the price, I would recommend buying online or ordering through friends instead of buying it here since one can get 2 blushes abroad for the price of 1 in India.
- Versatility: This shade is builadable and you can choose whether you want just a hint of color on your cheeks or a deeper pink look. This can also be use as an eyeshadow base or even as an all-over lid color. It looks really pretty this way too.

What I liked about NYX Rouge Cream Blush Boho Chic
- Pigmentation is applause-worthy

- The see-thru top makes it easy for us to identify the shade
- Good staying power.
What I do not like NYX Rouge Cream Blush Boho Chic
- May not be suitable for those having oily skin
- Availability is an issue. Nyx is not available everywhere and even then they may not carry all shades of this blush.
- Very pricey in India. It makes more sense to buy online for a lesser amount.
Will I recommend it to others - Yes for sure
