I’ll be reviewing the NYX Rouge Cream Blushes today. They come in a number of shades and I’ll be reviewing the shades Natural and Glow from this range. I completely adore these blushes and read on to find out why you should give them a chance to impress you too!
More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting.
Packaging: NYX’s Rouge Cream Blushes come in a round black packaging with a transparent lid. The transparent lid helps to identify the shades easily if you own more than one of these. The packaging is decent but not very sturdy to be ideal for travelling.
Fragrance: They have no fragrance at all.
Texture & Formula: The texture of these blushes is very creamy and it glides effortlessly on the skin which makes blending a dream. They are highly pigmented and only a little product is needed at a time. I prefer to use fingers to apply and blend these blushes as opposed to a brush. This is because the warmth from the fingers is enough to slightly melt these blushes and give a much more even and blended appearance.
Once on the skin, they give a very natural, dewy, healthy-skin glow. If set with a good base, these blushes last for about 5-6 hours on my oily skin. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and these blushes have never broken me out. These are my go-to blushes for the winter time! With the dewy look they give to the cheeks, the skin looks hydrated and healthy. For summers, I wouldn’t suggest these to oily-skinned girls as they can get a little greasy. But for normal to dry skinned girls, these could be a great choice all year round.
NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Natural is a light peachy-pink shade which gives a soft flush of color to the cheeks. As is its name, looks very natural and unless you overdo it, gives the illusion of skin glowing from within rather than makeup. I love this blush for my no-makeup makeup looks.
NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Glow is a warm pink shade. It might look a little intimidating in the pan but once on the face, gives a very wearable ‘rosy-pink-cheeks’ look. It is much more pigmented than Natural and you have to be very careful while applying it. Because of its high pigmentation, it is very easy to go over-board.
Please note that the above swatches have been applied heavily for pictures and normally, one wouldn’t require to use this much product.
NYX Rouge Cream Blushes are highly pigmented blushes which blend effortlessly, have a good staying power, come in a wide range of colors and despite being cream blushes do not cause breakouts. And did I mention they come at a great price! They are the only cream blushes I’ve tried so I cannot compare them with other similar blushes. But I can say with certainty that they are worth every penny and I would highly recommend them, especially for normal to dry skinned girls.
