Review: NYX Powder Blush in Apricot and Desert Rose...!!!

14:36:00

Hey beauties,

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start. Today I am sharing my thoughts on two NYX powder blushes that I had on my wishlist for so long. Luckily I was able to get them from Reforma.Pk. Reforma.pk is a new online shopping store in Pakistan that offers a huge variety of branded cosmetics, beauty and skincare products, makeup tools and accessories, perfumes and much much more. So no more talking and let's get to the review to see what I have to say about these NYX Powder Blushes.

Starting with the packaging, these blushers come in black plastic packaging with transparent lid. Inside, the blushers have raised quilted pattern that looks cute. The packaging however is not very sturdy rather feels cheap.

The texture of both the blushers is very soft and smooth. However, these blushers are a little trickier to blend and do not blend really easily and smoothly like other blushers. Both the shades are highly pigmented. But I felt that these blushers have a hard upper layer that needs to be scratched or removed to get even better color payoff. Nonetheless, the pigmentation is really amazing.

The shade "Apricot" is a really beautiful and subtle peachy coral shade. It has very fine shimmer in it which is not much visible once you apply it on the cheeks. Its finish is kind of semi-matte with very light sheen. I would call it a satin finish blush. The second shade "Desert Rose" is a lovely dark rosy pink shade. Its finish is semi-matte. Both the blushers do not emphasize any dryness or pores on the face skin and look very natural. The staying power of these blushers is not very remarkable but is pretty decent. These stay on my cheeks for about 4-5 hours or sometimes more.

Overall, I really like these blushers for everyday use. The texture of these blushers is really soft but somehow hard to blend. Nonetheless, I love both the shades and think these blushers are pretty good for the price.



The Goods:
  • Available in variety of shades and finishes
  • Great color payoff
  • Decent Staying power
  • Look natural
  • Soft texture
  • Cute pattern
  • Do not accentuate pores or dryness

The Bads:
  • Hard to blend
  • Packaging is not very sturdy




Price & Availability: NYX Powder Blushers are available online at Reforma.pk for Rs 680/- each.
International readers can find these at Beauty Joint for $5.00 each.





Overall Rating: 4.2/5...!!!

    1. I have tried blending it with different brushes. Denser brushes like RT blush brush or Sigma blush brush would work well. I usually use my ELF Small blending brush to apply it and then blend it using a larger brush.

  20. Apricot is such a nice color; I have always been a fan of coral blushes; Desert Rose less so. Thank goodness that they don't accentuate pores. Too bad they are hard to blend.
