Product Review: NYX Rouge Cream Blushes

After being a naughty girl with you guys, I gotta go back to doing reviews. :P

I have always been a powder blush user as it's so easy to use and I have oily skin so it is more recommended than creme blushes. However, I recently started getting out of my comfort zone and started exploring cheek tints, which I was not successful in using, and now, cream blushes. My first cream blush was NARS Lokoum from a sis and I found it a little hard to blend so I went back to using powder blushes. Not until I received NYX Glow from another sis, which is so easy to work with, I then changed my mind about cream blushes. And now, I will review the only 3 NYX Rouge Cream blushes I have.



Natural, Glow, Red Cheeks

GLOW
A very cute and pretty cool-toned bubblegum pink shade with no shimmers nor glitters.

NATURAL
A lovely nude peach-pink shadw with a hint of brown without shimmers and glitters that is true to its name when not overapplied.

RED CHEEKS
Intimidating and scary red in the pan but gives off a reddish fuschia pink tint without the shimmers and glitters.

What I like:
- The blushes are creamy and easy to blend.
- Applies smoothly.
- Buildable - you can go sheer and you can be a Betty Boop should you want to look like her.
- Matte but not flat, makes your cheeks look dewy and gives you a healthy pop of colour.
- Pigmentation is really good. Use sparingly.
- Can be used as a base for powder blushes.
- Cheap yet of good quality. You get value for money.
- Compact is sleek and doesn't look too cheap at all. Pretty practical too.
- Now locally available due to resellers.

What I don't like:
- Some are too creamy and some are too balmy so it's not quite consistent when it comes to texture.
- Lasting power is so-so. That could very well be due to my having oily skin.
- Shelf life is not consistent. Some show 8 months, some show 12 months. C'mon, be consistent.

Overall rating: 4/5
Will I buy again? No, because these 3 pans will take me years to finish. :P

Tip: To achieve an airbrushed effect and to make it look really natural, use with a stippling brush. :P

Swatches
Glow, Natural, Red Cheeks

When blended with a stippling brush:

Advance Happy Easter Egg Hunting Day! :P
