Review: NYX Powder Blushes

Hello Everyone! 
I hope you are all having a great week. It is already Wednesday so the weekend is near! Anyways, I have really been loving blushes this winter. I think they give a very nice finish to the pale snowy winter look ( if that makes any sense). I have especially been loving my NYX Powder Blushes. They are great quality and wallet friendly. I have three of these in the colors: Mocha, Terra Cotta, Desert Rose. Lets talk about how beautiful all three of these colors are. Terra Cotta is a gorgeous bronze shimmer color that looks amazing with taupe eyes. I am especially looking forward to wearing it during the fall. Mocha is a beautiful almost matte rose blush. It leaves a lovely natural look. Desert Rose is that perfect "I was just outside in the cold" blush. It gives a really nice rosy tone.

They have amazing lasting power. I put some on with a blush brush in the morning and even after going to class, lunch, class again and work, it still looks amazing. They really last at least 7 hours. They are also very pigmented. A little bit goes a very long way. I honestly just gently tap my brush into it and it is more than enough color. The packaging is not bad either. I mean it is not as pretty as the Benefit blushes or as sleek as the NARS blushes but they are small, cute and clearly show the color. Also I like how the top is see through. It is so much easier to find the color I am looking for. 
Overall, If you have not checked out these blushes yet, you have to! They retail for around 5 dollars at Ulta. If you already own some, let me know your favorite colors! I really want to expand my NYX Blush collection. 
Lots of Love,

  2. I'm going to be making an order from the Nyx shop soon! These look like such beautiful creamy blushes! Great review!

  3. I really love Mocha - it's the only shade I own, but I think Terracotta looks so stunning and would be a great addition to my makeup collection! x

  4. I was genuinely scared to try these blushes because I've heard that they can be a bit chalky, but now I'm very curious to try one myself. Thanks for this review! x
