This is one of my fav blushes ever. I have worn this to my local MAC store and have had more than one SA compliment me and ask what blush I'm wearing. It's matte, highly pigmented and a plummy berry color that complements my golden olive skin beautifully. I use a light hand when applying and it looks great both on it's own or with a shimmery highlight. Winner winner chicken dinner!
Hands down, NYX single powder blushes has the most pigment out of any drugstore blush. For a Lincoln and some coins, you can experience highend quality from this drugstore gem. Blush can be one of the most easiest things we can apply as so far as makeup. With blush, you don't need as much skill. However, when working with a highly pigmented matte finish blush, you do need to think about your application a bit more. Mocha is dripping with vibrant pigmentation and it is a matte shade. I like to use a skunk brush to apply Mocha. When applying Mocha, you really only need to dot once in the pan and flick lightly on cheeks. I like to add a sheer dusting of highlighter just at the top area to make it a bit more wearable. Mocha (colorwise) leans cool toned on me and the color appears as a reddish mauve.
my latest favorite blush. very pigmented, neutral to warm pink blush. i find that it looks best on me when applied with a small stippling/skunk brush. Lasts all day and gives me that perfect pink flush.
Love this blush. It's a warm matte medium tone pink that gives a natural flush to the face. There's no shimmer in this so I love using this blush everyday. Nyx's blushes are so pigmented that you def need a light hand to apply. I hate the cheap packaging. I have 2 other nyx blushes and this one is so hard to open. I chipped my nail the first time trying to open it so i now use a nail file to pry it open. Fail. Also, when i grabbed this blush today, it was crumbled in the pan. ;( im going to have to depot it. Other than that, def would repurchase this product!
The name of this blush is rather misleading. 'Mocha' isn't mocha or brown-colored at all but rather a warm, deep pink shade that has no shimmer to it. I like this blush because it's highly pigmented and gives a very pretty warm pink flush that looks fresh and natural. You can build the color up for more intensity. I think it's better suited for warmer or tan skin tones but lighter skin tones can wear it as well if applied with a light hand. All in all, one of the prettiest pink blushes NYX has to offer.
I love NYX blushes...they are cheap, easy and fun. I am almost collecting a few of the uber popular ones as I see them. So when I saw Mocha, I had to grab it. First, this is NOT a dupe at all for MAC Mocha. MAC's has a lot of plum/brown to its pink, where as NYX's is much more comparable to their Hot Pink Cream blush. I keep a blush swatch collection and NYX Mocha is the brightest, most fuschia, skewing hot pink, blush I have. This swatch was compared to NYX's Glow, Natural, & Peach blushes and MAC's Mocha, Blushbaby, Fleur Power, and finally NARS Amour.
On my NW20 skin black/brown hair, brown eyes, this is just a bit too much. This would probably be great on darker skin tones, but it is a bit much for me. I can make it work but it would definitely be more of a "look" I was trying to achieve as opposed to everyday wearable makeup. continued >>
This is my HG blush right now because it is so pigmented at it will last me foooorever. Seriously, I hardly get any product on my brush at all and it is plenty. This is suuuper blendable too. It looks like a scary color but it gives my yellowish undertone skin a nice glow. (with very little blush. if you put on too much you WILL look like a clown) The only cons are that the staying power is about medium level, it doesn't stay on all day, and it smells super weird (but it's not strong). I really like this and all the nyx stuff I've tried. Oh, except why is this called mocha? It's more rose or something haha
Very pigmented. Use a very light hand with this one or you'll look scary. You can easily achieve a beautiful rosey cheek with this. It is matte and blending is easy enough. I highly recommend it, since this will last you a long time, it is cheap, and the color payoff is amazing. Love it!
Yay! A matte blush! Alot of the drugstore blushes that I have tried come off looking too shimmery on my skin. This is 100% matte and has an excellent dusty medium pink colour payoff. Blending is a breeze and since it is quite pigmented I only need a little bit of this to get a subtle, yet youthful looking rosy glow. It can look too "clown-like" because of the pigmentation if you use too much. Doesn't accentuate pores and isn't chalky at all. Lasting power is fairly decent if used over foundation (since it has something to "stick" too). Highly recommend, especially for medium skin tones.
I was planning on using this blush as a temp until I bought the blush I had originally set out to buy, but after first using it, I instantly fell in love with it. I have an olive complexion, and the color comes out as a very pigmented matte mauve pink. A dab goes a long way. I have to blend it out with a cotton ball to collect the excess, so it is imperative to lightly apply. Great buy, bought it for ~$6 at a nearby beauty supply store. Definitely repurchasing.
