Uploaded a picture with this blush on my cheek. I LOVE THIS BLUSH. I have recently fallen HOH in Love with NYX and it now fills my makeup drawer. I needed some good blush and saw the reviews for this stuff and had to try it. I love the color! Amazon's product page has pictures of women of every different color wearing this blush and it has a natural, glowy pink on every skin tone. It has shimmer in the container but I don't see it translate onto my face for any of you who are worried by that. The packaging is great for me- a small compact square. I now have 3 or 4 of these blushes so the small size is great for storage. With a regular price of $4.99 this isn't a bad buy especially considering Ulta always has great sales. I will DEF continue to repurchase this once I run out of my stash that I've already started stockpiling!
P.S. Also got Peach and LOVE it! There's a shade of this blush for everyone.
Beautiful coral / dark salmon colour with good pigmentation. It has a gold highlight effect through the blush which seems to show more high on the cheek where it catches the light. Would suit most skin colouring. Easy to blend. Only downside for me is that it doesn't last through the whole day on my skin.
Gosh, i love NYX blush. This is the 3rd one ive tried and they continue to amaze me. Pinched resembles summer peach, which is my HG blush, just..pinker... but the golden shimmer is still there. Personally, i love shimmer, especially in blush, but i can understand why some dont. I think it gives the perfect amount of color for a healthy glow without looking garrish. Its the kind of color that i think would work with every skin tone. Im on the paler side so its not always easy to find natural looking color. As far as staying power...average. no matter what primer or base i use i can never get blush to stay on longer than a few hours. The price is perfect, the color is perfect. Now go buy it.
I never really liked blush before Pinched...but gave it a try as I heard it was a dupe for NARS orgasm (and after swatching both I would agree).
The colour is a light pinky colour, with gold chunks of glitter. The formula is a little powdery but that's ok because it applies and blends well. The longevity (for my dry skin) is all day.
Pinched gives your skin a healthy glow due to the addition of pink with the hint of gold for shimmer. Great for an everyday blush that can go with most looks.
This was one of my first NYX purchases. I was on a trip to the States and since there's no NYX where I live, I picked up a few blushes and some lipsticks.
I'm really impressed with the quality of their products for the price. This blows MAC blushes out of the water - sorry MAC, not going back to you. :o)
There were 25 colors for me to choose from at Ulta and I have to say, I was really overwhelmed! I wanted to buy all of them (haha) but settled on two that I didn't have in my blush collection. This was one of them.
I needed a peach blush and settled on this because it didn't have too much pink in it (to my eye anyway).
I'm a MAC NC 35-40 and was worried it may be a bit too light but took the plunge anyway as I figured I could pile it on. Since it's shimmery (but not glittery) I find it wakes up my skin in the dead winter. I'm sad to say that this isn't pigmented enough for my skin tone. It's more of a highlighter so what I like to do is to use a deeper matte blush in a complimentary color first then this over it and blend blend blend. I tried piling this on my cheeks alone and while it did show up, it's not matte so didn't look natural. I don't like shimmery cheeks but may try this in the summer since it's winter now. (Shimmery cheeks in this light color just make me look oily.)
Another con is the packaging. I move my makeup around on my dresser a lot and being clumsy I'm afraid that this will break and I'll have a powdery mess to clean up. One lippie off for that but if they jack up the price for better packaging - ehh, I'd still buy this one for cheaper because I'm cheap heh. I did drop it once on the floor and I'm happy to say nothing happened. Phew.
I like the amount you get for the price but this isn't suitable for travel in my makeup bag.
Which brings me to my next point - the longevity is excellent! I'm so happy about that. It's still on at the end of my work day.
Would I buy this again? Most definitely. NYX blushes are on my wishlist!
(EDIT - I've decided to swap this one for a deeper peach color!)
If my review helped you, click yes below!
I was super wary of moving from peaches to pinks in blush because of my skin tone, but wanted to give a slight pink color scheme a try. Previously I used L'Oreal True Match blendable blush in Precious Peach (N 1-2, my first and favorite) Bare Honey (W 1-2) and Barely Blushing (W 3-4) for dramatic contour on certain nights. So after reviewing and not being able to decide, I picked up this, Nyx Summer Peach, E.l.f. candid coral and E.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder, all of which are in my reviews, and all of which are varying shades of peachy-pink.
Of all the cheapo dupes of NARS Orgasm, this one is the most similar (not that I would spend that much on blush, at least when I have this, but I swatched it at the store). This is the shimmeriest of the bunch, even more so than the E.l.f. contouring blush, and about the same shade though it's hard to tell through all the shimmer. This also stays a bit better than the E.l.f. one but I like both depending on the look you are going for. This is great as a highlight/apples of cheeks blush, but NOT for whole face highlighting (I think it's far too shimmery)
The price is great, the compact is cute, but I have had breakage when dropping Nyx eyeshadows and this is the same style. I've seen it happen to blushes too so please be careful! Overall I do like it a lot and feel it adds a nice warmth to my cheeks instead of just the natrual peach look. continued >>
The best blush I've ever owned. very rich and buildable, love the colour as it has no glitter but just the right amount of shimmer to make you glow. Its the perfect pinkish peach, so pretty and long lasting.
I love NYX blushes and this is no exception. Great color. Fair prices. Simple, unpretentious packaging. I know this has been compared to Nars Orgasm but I like this one better - the color is more natural. Blush is one of those products you do not have to spend a lot of money on but really can liven your complexion.
I bought this because I read its like Orgasm without the obnoxious large glitter particles, which was the #1 reason I never purchased Orgasm in the first place. On my skin (NW40/43) it doesnt really show up well alone as a blush. Its buildible, but because there is some shimmer in it, its easy to over do. I like wearing it over a couple of matte blushes that I have, it gives a nice glow without being over powering.
Love this blush. Bought it based on swatches and reviews on the net. Took a shot. Totally worth it! Beautiful color, stays put all day long, great pigmentation. Defenitely buy again =)
