So a few weeks ago I purchased two cream blushes from NYX. Check out this post, http://wearethewicked.blogspot.com/2011/07/nyx-cosmetics-part-1-order-from.html, to see the swatches. I bought shades, golden and glow.
After trying them, I have to say they are great! They are very pigmented, so you have to be very careful not to apply too much. Also, you need a very small amount. Golden has a slight shimmery finish which gives the skin a very nice glow.
One of my main concerns was that it would feel heavy or sticky on my skin, however it dries to a powder finish and does not feel heavy or sticky. They also last a very long time without fading.
You have to be very very careful when taking some of the blush out of the case because it is very creamy, therefore if you are not careful you will pick up way too much product.
You can apply the blush with your finger by dabbing it on you cheek and then smudging it upwards towards your cheekbones. You may also use a brush and swirl it in a circle, the same as when you are applying powder blush. Another option is applying the blush with a sponge by also blending it upwards to your cheekbones.
I will definitely be buying more shades of this blush, because they give the skin a very nice glow and are very affordable.
Until next time,
