I have this in Orchid (peach with gold sparkles) and while I love the colour, this stick format is just nowhere near as good as NYX's Rouge Cream blush. It is more difficult to apply/blend and seems to start wearing off pretty quickly, whereas the Rouge Cream blush lasts AGES. This also doesn't have a very nice finish, and I feel that to blend it out enough so it looks "natural", it ends up looking patchy. I won't buy this again and will stick to the Rouge Cream blush in future.

I have this in pink lotus, which has some noticeable sparkles in it that I could do without. Other than that, it's pretty decent. It is a bit hard to apply. Sometimes I dab too much of it on so it becomes very hard to blend out. I guess it just takes practice. I usually dab some onto my cheeks then blend out with a kabuki or flat top. It looks natural (aside from the sparkles). I've been eyeing Orchid for a while now and I plan on picking it up next time I'm at Ulta.

To the reviewer who thinks these have been discontinued by NYX: they haven't, and I found no evidence that Ulta where I live (California) has nixed them (sorry, couldn't resist). It's a beautiful blush. Better than MAC creme blush and better than NARS The Multiple. I just bought Orchid. It resemble Nars' Orgasm. Some might find it a little dry, but I find that overly moist creme blushes disappear from my mature, not terribly dry, skin, so this one is nice for me. Beautiful corally color with slight gold reflects. It is not totally matte as suggested by another reviewer; however, they do make some lovely matte shades that I intend to try next. I'm picky and would pay for Nars, but this one is better. I don't work for NYX! I do use Nars powder blush and love, love it. Enjoy.

I'm glad I picked up the NYX stick blushes before they were discontinued -- they are a fabulous and inexpensive blush! It's hard to find a good cream blush, and even harder to find a CHEAP cream blush. At around $4 a pop, they really can't be beat (I found mine at Ulta right before they phased them out, so I dunno how much they were before that). I picked up Orchid (a matte peach), Tulip (a dusty pink), and Magnolia (a brighter, more magenta pink). Each are easy to apply & blend: just one quick roll on directly from the tube, then a gentle pat with the fingers to blend. Very flattering and glowy; no chunky shimmers whatsoever. It's also very long-lasting. Disappointed NYX won't be carrying these anymore.

Stick blush in "Tulip" was my first NYX product and do I ever love it.
Firstly, it was a balm to my wounded beauty soul for when NYC mysteriously discontinued their line of amazingly inexpensive high performing stick blushes. (again... WHY???)
Tulip is a bright and warm "true pink." Not mauve-y and not coral either, but somewhere in between. Moreover, it is shimmer free, highly pigmented, and has a luxurious, creamy texture. It was absolutely perfect for spring and summer wear and a nice change from the muted rose tones I usually wear.
Not that it's winter, I'm back to wearing it. Gotta love how awake it makes me look.
Get a stick! They're cheap and good!

NYX Stick Blush in Pink Poppy is amazing. 'nuff said.
For skin color/type ref, I am Asian NW 20-25, oily/combination skin.
I am currently a senior in high school and literally have no time to spend 10-15 minutes on making myself look good for 6-7 hours. I am NOT a morning person so I often have less than 5 minutes to slap on anything that's in front of me onto my face.
I think Pink Poppy is a huge step into my daily routine that I can't miss. Putting this stick blush on me takes about a minute. Roll the stick up, put it on the apples of my cheeks and blend. This looks SUPER natural on me and instantly makes my skin look healthy. People are often asking me if I am getting a lot of sleep these days thanks to this dandy stick blush ;)
I will most definitely repurchase this! and maybe other colors as well! I am impressed.
EDIT: As of 2/28/2013, I recently visited my Ulta and discovered that NYX doesn't sell these stick blushes anymore! Dang it!

I bought this in magnolia and am pretty satisfied with it. I prefer cream blushes over powder and since this is a swipe and blend kind of blush, it's very convenient. It blends easily and lasts longer than I was expecting (about 5 hours on me)

I like this alot. I use it everyday because I don't want to use my tarte airblush, anyway, I have this in orchid and its great, blends well, very sheer but build able. I put it on my fingers and warm it up a bit at first and then just blend away I love it

I was excited to try this, and disappointed by how tiny the blush actually is (.013 oz). I got it for around $6-7 at Ulta. I have this blush in pink poppy, which is a peachy pink and works well on my NC10-15 skin. It is pretty pigmented, a little goes a long way. I dab it on my cheeks, and blend. It feels pretty powdery, I actually wish it was a bit creamier, but I do apply it over mineral veil setting powder so this may be why. I probably will repurchase, but am going to try the NYC blushable creme sticks and see if I like those better.

Very nice blush stick. I am nc42 and i got magnolia (bright pink) and pink poppy (gentle pinky peach).. i like both. I really like pink poppy...
I wasnt too sure of magnolia cos its sooo bright... but then i used a flat top brush to stipple/buff it and it looks very nice and natural.
Lasts 3-4hrs.. for the price, its great. I prefer this to my mac creams.
Overall, i wud repurchase if i ever run out.

This is my first cream blush so I don't have anything to compare it to but all in all the product is okay in my opinion. I have the colour in Tulip, so if you're after something that is very sheer & natural then this is the blush for you. I actually use it as a blush base & use my Elf studio blush in Candid Coral on top which gives really pretty results as it gives great hold and my powder blush looks more intense this way. Another good thing is that the package is great for travel and I just use my fingers to blend onto my cheeks.

I'm so surprised at this product! I stumbled upon it while at Urban Outfitters and I always wanted to try a blush stick but could never afford a Tarte one! These are $6 at Urban Outfitters and that is a decent price if you really consider how much you are saving, and also the quality. If you have a discount because you work at stores such as Ulta, UO, ETC or places that sell NYX products, you'll get it even cheaper!
Anyway, I liked this product because they have a very nice color range. There are some pinks, some oranges, some with shimmer, etc. Very pretty. I have Orchid right now but am dying to collect them all! I usually don't collect products but I might just start because of these!
You twist the product up, and apply it either with your finger or directly onto your face. It really depends on you, but I prefer my clean fingers! I then blend it out with a brush because my finger doesn't apply with enough coverage.
It lightweight! I don't feel a thing! It gives me a subtle look after I heavily blend it out. I've also tried using it as a lip color, which is very subtle too.

I have this in Pink Lotus. I dont like it at all. Its too dry in texture and the glitter in it is chunky and obvious. The packaging is very cute and girly. I may try other colors.

I love these stick blushes....Cheap, super easy to blend, and beautiful! Better than some expensive ones that I have tried....got my sister hooked on them as well...My two favorite colors are Hibiscus and Water Lily....Give them a try....they work awesome with my BB cream on days I just want to look decent for running around, but are high performance on those special occasions as well......I can't believe how awesome they are for the price!

I can't believe no one is talking about these, they're great! They all have names of flowers, I have tulip (bright cool pink) and hibiscus (warm peach) and they both have a nice matte finish. I have nothing bad to say about these, and I like them way more than the NYX creme blush because it doesn't look oily. Just subtle and pretty. there are several shades, and some have sparkly and shiny finishes. The hibiscus color looks a little muddy on me but it works in the summer. Tulip looks like how my cheeks are naturally when I blush. Highly recommend these!!
