The NYX Powder Blush is available for GBP 6.00.
The blush is described as follows. "Our pressed powder blush delivers sheer, silky colour that glides on, blends beautifully and creates a natural glow. The formula is richly-pigmented and lasts for hours. Available in 25 shades."
The ingredients are Mica, Talc, Magnesium Stearate, Dimethicone,Isononyl Isononanoate, Nylon-12, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Zinc Oxide,Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin.
The blush has a chemical scent, if you hold your nose directly to the pan. When applying this chemical smell is not noticeable. To apply the blush I use a blush brush. In itself, the blush can be applied well, but unfortunately crumbles a bit of blush, if you go with the brush in the pan. By crumbs always lost a little product, which has a negative effect on productiveness. With the result, I am very satisfied. The blush is optimal pigmented. The blush is markedly more hiding than all blushes from the drugstore, I've tested so far. At the same time it can be spread very evenly, so that one does not receive a spotty result. The shimmering blush have only a very subtle shimmer and can be seen on the cheeks significantly more color than shine. The eye shadow is very comfortable and the durability is to evaluate my opinion as well. The blush holds several hours.
I can recommend the NYX Powder Blush, as the blush can be applied evenly and has a good covering power. The blush is long-lasting.
I discovered NYX when I moved out of my parents' house and started doing my own research on makeup brands. NYX was one of the first companies to strike my eye, having the name of a Greek deity, which is quite appealing to me since I am Greek myself. Also, they are cruelty free which is always a plus. I saw that they had a number of good products for a fair price, and of course I bought some stuff from ebay right away. I got this blush in 2 shades : Angel and Summer Peach.
The packaging is a square container that cracks open. On the top lid there is a transparent part and so you can see the blush inside when it's closed. This is pretty cute. The casing does not feel very sturdy, and after dropping one of them, the transparent part broke off and I had to glue it. Although that was my mistake.
Both shades are incredibly pigmented, all you need is a light swipe across with the brush to pick just enough powder. The powder blends seamlessly into the skin creating a blushing effect.
Summer Peach is a darker pink/coral shade with golden shimmer. Angel is a light pink/champagne shade with cooler shimmers in it. Out of these, Angel was much more suited to my skin color because it's paler than the other. It was a gorgeous shade that could easily be used as a highlighter too. Summer Peach was also very beautiful, but I had to be careful not to use too much on my cheeks.
As you can assume, these are really worth the price, as a little goes a long way. Generally a very good blush to have in your collection!
NYX is an american brand that isnt widely available in the UK. I had only heard of it because i watch a lot of beauty gurus on youtube that rave about nyx products. So when i saw that my local next was stocking a selection of their range i had to have a look!
I ended up buying the blush and a lipgloss. The blush was really reasonably priced at around £6, the entire range is well priced i think. I picked a really gorgeous pink with a slight shimmer.
The blushes come in a compact black pot with a flip lid that has a clear window so you can see the colour. The powder is set rather than loose which makes it alot less messy. The powder is lovely and velvety smooth and feels lovely on the skin. I always use it with a blush brush my swirling it over the set powder, it easily transfers on to the brush. I don't find that you need a lot of the powder as it has a high pigmentation so leaves colour in your cheeks easily. The slight shimmer in the powder gives a lovely glow to your skin without being over poweringly glittery, it highlights nicely.
I've been really impressed with the quality of this nyx blush, its really affordable and works brillantly. I can't wait to purchase more from this range. The only downside i have is i wish it was more easily available in the UK but im sure this will come with time, until then i will have to settle with buying from next and online!
****NYX Powder Blush****
This is an American brand which would be classed as a cheap make. The products are mostly really good for the price and i would recommend them to everyone.
**Packaging and Product **
This comes in a black box with a clear lid with the name on it. I think that it feels quite sturdy and that it wont break that easily. The actual blush has a quilted look to it and it feels really soft to touch. It is very easy to apply-just use a blusher brush and sweep over cheeks. There are 19 shades to choose from which is good as it means i have a shade for every occasion!!These are highly pigmented and you only need the teeniest bit to get some colour on your cheeks. The product itself is also extremely long lasting and for $6 it is completely worth it. It is hypoallergenic so should suit all skin types.
I think this is worth it as i have used this loads and loads and it looks like it has hardly been used. The only annoying thing is that i have to purchase it online.
