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!)

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.

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 =)

Skin: NC40 ~ Olive. I've owned Nars Orgasm and gave it away. I recently purchased Pinched and love it. For me, I think Orgasm and Pinched are similar but not a dupe. Pinched pigment comes off more vivid on me than did Orgasm pigment. Pinched appears more pink whereas Orgasm appeared apricot on me. As for the gold shimmer, Pinched has more of a subtle finish and Orgasm was very strong and glittery looking. With Orgasm, the finish was a slight hint of apricot and an overwhelming display of gold glitter. With Pinched, I get a nice shade of peachy pink with a hint of gold shimmer. Overall, I think NYX Pinched is a better quality product than Nars Orgasm. As with staying power, they both stayed on all day long. Of course, Nars has beautiful sleek packaging with a nice mirror and NYX has a standard DS plastic packaging with no mirror.

This is a lovely blush. I've heard some people say it's a dupe for NARS O, but to me they're different. I think that Orgasm has more of a sheen on the face than this does, and a bit less color, if that makes sense. I like them both, for different looks. Anyway, this is a pinky-peach (leans more peach to me) with a fine gold shimmer. It's very pigmented and you don't need to use a lot to get it to show up. I'm very fair and cool toned, and I find it very flattering on me. It has a nice light shimmer but is not super shiny. (less so than O) I think it's great for everyday looks. It is a little bit powdery but very soft, and blends out easily. You definitely can't beat the price! I have another NYX blush (Peach) and I'm very impressed with the quality of both.

I am very impressed with 'pinched' - a beautiful pink/peach color. I have used Nars orgasm and did not repurchase as it was a little too glittery and too costly - not impressive enough to justify the expense.
Pinched goes on so lovely. One swipe with a soft blush brush, a slight 'tap off' and lightly apply to the cheeks for a soft and subtle glow.
For the record I did not expect to like this the way I do. I ordered this on-line based on reveiws and also got a couple e/s and I love them too. What do you know.... Happy Camper to find a quality makeup line and inexpensive to boot.

Gorgeous blush and a very decent dupe for NARS orgasm. For a drugstore product, I am very impressed- the NYX blushes are very comparable to a really good, high end blush. The blush is finely milled, very pigmented, and the colors are gorgeous with great color payoff. You also can't beat the price. I highly recommend this shade, and others in the same line.

Amazing dupe for the nars orgasm in 1\5 of the price!!!
Bought it 1 month ago and from then became my favorite!!!!!

love love love this blush, its a very nice peachy pink color which can go on natural or pigmented depending on how you want your look, its the color i was looking for, and it has tiny shimmer in it which will leave you with a nice radiant glow, its better than any other blushes ive brought, i can honestly say that its better than mac springsheen or nars orgasm, and with the price you cant go wrong.

Having never tried NARS Orgasm, I can't say whether or not this is a good dupe. What I do know is that this is a very pigmented peachy-pink color that gives the skin a healthy flush. It does contain some shimmer in the pan, but I don't notice it on my face at all. Through some experimentation, I've noticed this shade can be built up to a much more vibrant shade (too vibrant for me) on my light olive skin and I can see this working on a wide range of skin tones and undertones. The price is excellent for the quality, though I feel like I might break the packaging on accident if I am not careful.

There's a lot of online reviews comparing this to NARS orgasm and i was looking for something close to that shade, just that i wasn't willing to splurge SGD65 on it so when i finally got NYX pinched, i was pleased. It's not exactly the same as orgasm but it does have a nice color payoff and the gold shimmers were subtle enough to give me a nice glow without looking like i was a glitter ball. This blush however is not very long wearing, it will stay for about 6 hours max but this is alright for me.
The packaging needs work on because the lid is so crappy and feels like it is about to come off anytime. The size is quite huge considering you only use a little bit of it. Overall, i love it and is my HG blush of the moment. I might actually get other colors from NYX just to try on but this is definitely my staple.

I finally purchased a bunch of NYX products and am in love with this blush!! I only started wearing blush regularly last year, and have been on the hunt for nice, wearable ones. This has quickly achieved HG status for me.
It is a soft, peachy pink with a very tasteful shimmer. It gives me the prettiest, healthy glow that I have ever seen- I love it!! The packaging is simple, but I really don't care since the product is so wonderful. I actually like that it isn't very bulky.
I've seen a lot of comparisons here to NARs orgasm but I have no clue if they are valid. I didn't even really know that when I purchased this. I found it on a 40% off sale, so I can't even complain abt the price at all. Love love love this and highly recommend it to everyone, unless you have rather dark complexion because then this may not show up much.

Bought this from seeing reviews claiming it to be a dupe for NARS Orgasm. I don't have it to compare but this is a beautiful blush that mixes shades of pink, peach and coral. I can imagine it flattering all skin tones. This blush is just perfect for fine sunny days where you can see the glow that the shimmer brings out. You should absolutely get this if you have a medium skintone and/or crave Nars O but can't afford it.
