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.
