NYX Cream Blush | Glow

Monday, 17 March 2014

While on NYX Cosmetic's website recently I saw this beautiful cream blush called Glow and I had to have it. I have really been loving cream face products recently and I decided I needed to own a cream blush (I even shocked myself that I don't own any!).

Glow is a warm bright pink shade with hints of coral to it.  I usually wear more coral and peach shades on my cheeks so I was excited to try something a little bit out of my comfort zone. This shade to me epitomises spring and summer!

Being a cream blush you obviously expect it to be creamy, but this blush feels like butter! The pigmentation of this blush is amazing so you only need the smallest amount to give your cheeks a beautiful flush of colour.

My favourite way to apply this blush is with a duo fibre brush. I first stipple the colour onto my cheeks and then go back and blend in a circular motion. This blush blends like a dream and has such a natural dewy finish to the skin. Even once set, this blush doesn't go powdery.

Cream blushes are great for people with dry skin and who love the dewy look. Which is why I am in love with the way it looks on me! I managed to get about 5 hours wear from this blush until it began to fade, but it didn't go patchy at all. If you have oily skin, the longevity of wear may be less unless you set it with either a powder blush or translucent powder.

I don't know why its taken this long for me to purchase a cream blush, but its safe to say I'm now hooked! I love the natural flush it gives my cheeks as well as the dewy finish which I particularly love in the spring and summer months. Glow will look even more beautiful when I have a bit of a tan later on in the year!

NYX have such a good shade range of cream blushes to choose from, with a total of 11 in the collection. For only £5.50 each I am amazed by the quality of them. I am yet to be disappointed by any of their products. I will no doubt be picking up more of these blushes in the near future as I already have my eye on the shade Orange!

NYX Cream Blushes are available online now in 11 shades
