The color is very pretty but right now in the winter, this looks very bright and clownish on me. And I'm not even very fair. I don't know my current MAC shade but in summer I'm a NC35, so right now I'm about an NC30 or maybe lighter idk. But it looks extremely bright. I have another nyx blush called Summer Peach and that one seems MUCH more comparable to NARS' Orgasm (which I also own) and swatched side by side, it looks almost identical compared to Pinched. I'm not saying this is a crappy blush because it's not. It's just not working for me right now in the winter. Too bright and obvious. It is a really pretty color though :) also (and this is a big one) just a LITTLE goes a VERY long way. It's very soft and it wears off throughout the day but it fades into a natural looking flush. But it's garish when first applied. Just a tap or two on your blush brush is all you need.
I really like this blush. I watched a lot of reviews on YouTube about it & I finally went to Ulta to buy it. It doesn't feel chalky. The color is pretty. It has sparkles but it's not over powering. It lasted about 4 hours. I just need to find a different blush brush. I have a bare minerals blush brush but with this blush it's easy to be heavy handed. I watched 1 of my favorite Beauty Gurus recommend E.L.F blush brush so I'm going to go purchase that & see if that helps putting it on easier.
Love this blush! The texture is great and gives a nice, natural finish. The colour is beautiful for medium skin tones. Pigmentation is good so I apply with a light hand. Price is great for what it is - I bought it b/c of reviews saying it's a NARS Orgasm dupe, but dupe or not I think the price is fair for the quality and amount. The packaging is flimsy and a little hard to open but other than that, no complaints. Will def repurchase and maybe purchase other colours in the line.
This is a great blush, great pigmentation and it applies well. I love how I don't have buy this blush online (not all nyx colours are available in store in Canada). I love how it's a great balance between peach and pink with a wee bit of shimmer - which doesn't show up when you apply it.
Like most nyx blushes you need to be a light handed with this blush... Or else you could look like a clown.
LOVE: the price, the pigmentation, the hue, the quality, the shimmer, the lasting power and of course, how well it looks on my skin tone. Excellent product!
This matches my real blush exactly so I don't look like I'm wearing blush (neither do I feel like I am). The shimmer is very natural and is more glowy than glittery. I forgot I was wearing it once and I was baffled when I looked at my face at the end of the day to see me all glowy and fresh cheeked.
Got this in the Mortal Instruments collection as a gift, and I'm so happy this blush was included! I now use it daily. Im olive/yellow skin toned, and this looks great and natural on me. As the others have said, it's a deep pink with very fine gold glitter but when u apply it, it just blends into the skin and looks natural. There is no discernible scent, which I like. The texture is pretty fine and you barely feel it on your skin. You don't need a lot to achieve a pretty flush. I apply mine with eco tools blush brush. lasts well into the day over my primer and foundation. Very pleased with this product.
This is definitely my go to blush. I use it everyday and the color is a beautiful corally pink with gold glitter. In the pan, the bush looks super glittery but you don't see the glitter much on your face. It gives a nice glow on my face and is very pigmented and smooth. It definitely gives my face a boost in the morning and is just the right color to work with everyday natural looks and dark party looks.
This is my every day blush and it brightens up my face like nothing else. In the pan, it's a peachy-coral with gold glitter, but the glitter doesn't really show up when I apply it. The staying power is okay, but I tend to apply blush with a very light hand because I want that barely-there glow.
I got this blush in the mortal instruments set this summer. At first I was overwhelmed by the glitter, but found with a light hand this gives the closest peachy glow that mars orgasm does that I have found in the drugstore. I would definitely buy this again before I repurchased orgasm.
