I have two different colours: Apricot (a light pink with specks of glitter) and Cinnamon (a dark orangey red). I love using Apricot but the colour payoff isn't high (even though I have very fair skin), Cinnamon on the other hand has high colour payoff. I have to be very lighthanded with Cinnamon and think it is better suited for darker skin tones.

The price isn't high for these but they seem to be very hit and miss. Worth trying some in your favourite colours but not depending on these for your entire collection.

Not very pigmented, but the payoff is good after a little build up. Long lasting and a wide variety of colours.

of the powder blushes i've tried, all of them have great pigmentation and blend easily. not much else to say about blush... there a number of color choices to accommodate many different skin tones. i LOVE the color cinnamon for women of color(including myself). looks fantastic on any shade of brown skin, especially for the summer

This is a really great blush. I have it in the shade bourgeois pig, which is a medium-dark matte pink with cool undertones. The formula is great too because it isn't so soft that it crumbles everywhere and it is smooth and easy to blend. The pigment is good but I wish it was a little more pigmented, although it makes it buildable so this isn't a problem for me. Also, the powder is just a teensy bit hard so it is just a smidge hard to get onto the brush. The other small problem I have is that the packaging is kind of cheap and flimsy feeling. I feel like if I dropped it the plastic would break. But all in all, awesome blush.

I have shade terracotta and its beautiful on my tanned skin. I love the package, perfect to travel with. There is no fall out so no mess. Colour can be built up but seems to dissapear slightly after 5ish hours. It doesnt move or anything like that so wont look odd on the cheeks. Blends beautifully. I will be buying more shades and replacing this particular shade when out. Feels great on. I love it.

I only have one of these, Pinched. I always hear people on YouTube rave on and on about the NYX blushes, especially in Pinched. At the moment Im NC45, extremely tan and this shows up very pretty, a pretty pink with some shimmer. It makes me look awake and cheerful. I have oily skin and it does not last very long. Id rather have it fade away then make my skin look shiny or oily though. On a four hour work day, after two hours I noticed my blush was just barely noticeable. :/ Even if I pack it on it won't stay for too long... It is very pigmented though, and you get a good size for $5. The color is very similar to Nars Orgasm as well. I use the ELF small stipple brush (which is AMAZING) and it applies the product amazingly exactly where I want and lets me build it to how much I want instead of just too much in one go. I do recommend it, maybe if you have normal/dry skin it will last longer, but on my oily skin, doesnt hold up as well. I do looove the color and finish though, and would buy again, also maybe other shades would hold better too (:

Years ago I had some Nars blush that was super red. I loved it, but it was hard to use. I found this NYX dupe called "red" (pb24) that's a little less pigmented. This is often my go-to, depending on how crappy I look that day lol

I was really wanting to be impressed with these blushes, but unfortunately, that's not what happened. I bought two cute, bright, everyday spring pinks: mocha and peach. Both blushes are very pigmented. Peach, in moderation, is the perfect pop of color to an otherwise sleepy face. I was disappointed because, as pigmented as these blushes are, they just don't apply or blend well. I used a MAC 168 brush with this, which usually applies powder products flawlessly, and is easy to blend with, but this blush wouldn't budge. I tried the MAC S129 and it worked reasonably better, so I was happy; but it didn't stay for very long at all.

If you buy NYX powder blushes, you're getting:

-easy to store, compact packaging
-a huge color selection and pigmented shades
-a very short staying power for a blush, maybe two-four hours at most
-little blendability
-a functional paperweight

Wanted to love this. Got Taupe to contour, but it made me break out and clogged my pores.

I bought two of these blushes in sand and pinched and I am overall really pleased. Sand is a nice light bronzer color that makes me feel summery but not like I actually tan, I don't feel fake bronze. Pinched is a very universal easy to like light pink. These are medium pigmented IMO, so a few swipes does the trick but it is easy to blend and be light, and not get that clown look.
I am sad I have acne scars on my cheeks because I almost never wear my blushes. I just try not to draw any attention to the area, you know? My blushes have been sitting around for almost 2 years pretty much unused. I am hoping that at the rate I am going I will be healed up enough by next year to start wearing them again.
I took one lippy away because it's more shimmery than I would have liked.
