NYX Cream Blush Review

NYX Cream Blush

Since I've turned forty, I've noticed my skin has started to become drier and the make-up I used to wear all the time, is no longer my friend. I've tossed out everything and am starting from scratch, looking for items that not only look great and work as promised, but are affordable. So, here our journey begins, one product at a time as I explore what works and what just doesn't cut it.

I chose this NYX cream blush in the color "natural" after reading so many good reviews. Being very fair skinned, with light hair, I wasn't sure how the color would work, but I really like it! I would describe it in person as a peachy-rose tone. The lid opens with ease and snaps shut, to stay closed, the blush itself is very creamy and light, almost silky. Don't worry if this shade isn't for you, they have 9 more!

I applied it using a brush, stippling first and then blending just on the apples of my cheeks. It really didn't take a lot of product to get the color perfect and it went onto the skin lighter than the palette appears. Using a beauty blender would work well too. It doesn't have a glittery shimmer, but I wouldn't call it totally matte either. It did last me all day, no touch ups needed and after years of wearing powdered blushes, I believe cream really is better.

Pro: Cruelty-free, appears natural and blends well.

Cons: Doesn't include an applicator, I suggest picking up a e.l.f stippling brush.

I recommend this product if you really want color to last and look natural.

Have You Tried The Dollar Shave Club?


I have to be honest, I hate women's razors. I don't like how they work, the girly color options and especially how expensive they are. This month, after reading several reviews and having A friend tell me about the program, I decided to give in and try it. After all, I think my hubby is sick of me dulling his blades and replacing them is costly. After reviewing the options at Dollar Shave Club, I settled on the $6.00 package, which includes a razor handle, four blades and free shipping. After placing my order, I set it up so I will receive new blades every other month. I'm really excited about the savings and can't wait to receive my box!

It's simple to join, just sign up by selecting a razor and creating an account. They ship you blades and a handle in your first order! You can then choose to have new blades shipped to you every month or every other month, like a subscription, no hassle, no worries. You are free to cancel anytime, no questions asked.
