I think its time for me to start investing in some blushes. I have a very limited amount of blushes. Sometimes I feel they look a little clownish on some maybe because they overdo it or the color doesn’t go well with the skin tones. But yes, the right shade does give a healthy peachy glow to one’s skin. I shall be sharing one such product that I own in my stash and it is the NYX Powder Blush in the shade PB01 Mocha.

My take on NYX Powder Blush PB01 Mocha:
The powder blush comes packed in a little black case. The peekaboo flip top on it makes it convenient and easy to find it while I go through my stash. The NYX logo with the little heart is printed on it. I like the packaging and the way the formula has been set inside. It is so adorable. The blush is set in a quilted design. I have almost used up the product so the design is nowhere to be found on the photo. It doesn’t come with an applicator brush so that is a little con as I don’t like carrying a separate brush everywhere I go.
Color: Ok, lets discuss about the color. The name PB01 Mocha doesn’t go well with the shade since Mocha is referred to brown color and this shade is nowhere close to brown. It is a beautiful medium pink shade but with a slight peachy undertones. It is so versatile that would suit any kind of skin tones.
Pigmentation: Scores high on the pigmentation department. I prefer using a single swipe though, as I don’t want to end up looking like a clown.
Texture: The formula is pure matte but it has a satiny touch. I m in love with it! Very soft and smooth while application and leaves behind a flushed matte look. Like lipsticks, I prefer matte finish in blushes as well. It is very easy to blend them because of their velvety texture. The only downfall is that the brush tends to pick up more quantity than required, therefore product wastage due to that. So handle the brush lightly while going through it.
Staying power: It last for 5 to 6 on me on a non-humid day.
