NYX Taupe Blush Review & Swatches

Hey Lovelys ,
 
I'm sure you have seen reviews on this little blush before but I thought I'd throw my little review into the mix too!
 




I've tried one of the NYX cream blushes before and I loved it! (Read that post here) but I've never tried their powder blushes before this one.
The shade of this blush is perfect for contouring on pale skin. It looks a little shimmery in the picture but it doesnt contain glitter is it nice and matte! I was using the sleek contour kit in light before which I did love but it was a little too muddy/dark for me, but this is just perfect. It's not too orangy and not to muddy, it really does look natural when you apply it. You can also really build this up without it looking cakey.

It's not the most pigmented of blushes but I actually prefer that as it's easier to work with and it doesn't end up looking all blotchy. (I find that the sleek blushes are so pigmented that you have to be so careful when applying!)

The staying powder is quite good but not brilliant, I apply this in the morning and it has pretty much rubbed off by the time I get home but I don't use any primer or setting sprays so those could help!

This costs around £5 and I think its a bargain, really love this and recommend it!

Have you tried any NYX blushes before?

  5. I love the NYX blushes but this isn't one which I think I'd pick up normally. I also have the Sleek contour kit but I think it's a bit muddy, I might try this out :)
