So finally, it’s the time of the year when I can pull off cream blushes with ease. That day, I was going through the video of Zara where she was describing ways of applying blushes, which reminded me of this beauty lying in my vanity. Ohh !! She is a pro.
Today’s review is on NYX Cream rouge Blush in “Natural”. I bought these after seeing Anamika’s review on “red cheeks” from the same range. Super excited me got three from myself, Red cheeks, Natural and Boho Chic .
My experience with NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Natural:
Packaging: The blush comes housed in a black pot. It has neither a mirror inside, nor an applicator. The transparent lid helps in detecting shades from outside.
Shade: It is a very pretty pinky peach color that adds a beautiful, natural flush of color on your cheeks. I just love the glow in my skin after applying this. I think this one is best suited for fair to medium skin tones. It is perfect for everyday wear as it looks very natural.
Texture: It has a very soft texture and blends flawlessly for the most natural finish. But it never settled on pores or lines. It gets absorbed fast and doesn’t result in greasy looking cheeks.
Color payoff: Very, very pigmented. I just need a smallest of amount, apply dots on cheeks and blend them outward. It is however a buildable and thus you can have a stronger pinky cheek color in no time.
Staying power: It stays on all day long on me. And it should be noted that I have normal to dry skin. But I think it will easily stay 5+ hours on combination skin when dusted some setting powder over it.
Wear it alone or as a base for your favorite powder blush to pop. It thus helps in increasing the staying power of your powder blushes as well.
