OMG I just got this color about 3 days ago and have been wearing it since then..I love this color it's perfect not too bright or chalky! it's perfect!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE it!
So because of all the very positive NYX reviews I bought 6 of them from cherryculture.com. I was not impressed with the first three which were in Peach, Pinky and Taupe. I was starting to give up on NYX blushes.
Peach I thought was much too chalky and light for my NC35-ish skin.
Taupe I thought was too gray and night of the living dead of a color. Too fake for contouring.
Pinky was nothing like MAC's pink Swoon like I had hoped.
So I keep my unopened cosmetics in a 3 tier plastic container. Yesterday I moved it and the lip was not open an so all my new unopened makeup spilled over my carpet. Granted this only dropped from about my shoulder height lets's say 4 feet. Almost all my products made out fine except for my NYX blush in Mocha. That one, the quarter of the pan actually broke off into pieces. So I thought to myself... fine, let me just open it and start using this one. I actually thought the color of this one was quite nice and flattering. So the downfall was how easily this one broke.
Also, the photo of Mocha is far too fair of a pink than what it really is. The color seems more red to in person.
This blush has some serious pigmentation going on! You only need to dip your brush in very lightly to get a natural wash of colour (especially if you're fair skinned like me). I think this blush is going to last me forever. I like the colour a lot - it's a very neutral pink (not too bright and Barbie-ish). It blends fairly well too. If I ever run out, I will repurchase for sure!
Best blush ever!!! I love this color!! It's not too bright.
for me, It's the PERFECT pink! It looks pretty on, natural and it blends very well.
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.
