This is an okay product. I like that it is light, blendable, leaves a subtle sheen on your cheeks thanks to the microshimmer and is very natural looking. It would be hard to look garish with this product. However, it is most definitely not a Golden color, and the packaging feels cheap. In fact, the clear plastic circle on the top of mine came loose and I had to tape it to prevent it falling into the blush. Also, mine may be old or something, but I have noticed the product "sweating" meaning that little beads of moisture collect on top of the blush, even when its not left in the sun. This doesn't affect the color, its just kind of annoying. I also notice that it takes a while to set on my cheeks before it isn't sticky to the touch.
Despite the negatives, I would rebuy and try other colors because it is a very pretty, cheap, easy to apply cream blush that would be hard to overdo.

I got this in a swap. it happens to be one of the only cream blushes I own. normally I don't like using cream blush because it's not as easy to apply as powder, but this one is so pretty that I just couldn't part with it. it instantly makes my face look brighter, and looks especially nice when I also use bronzer to contour. usually I'll wear this with another powder blush on top, because I feel that NYX Golden gives the look of an "inner glow" whereas any other blush I put on top of it will give an "outer glow". sometimes I'll wear this blush without another on top, when I want a more natural look.
unfortunately, this blush is hard to find. the only two stores in my town that sell NYX products are Harmon and Ulta, and neither carry this shade :( even though I've never tried it, it appears that Revlon Photoready cream blush in Pinched is a similar color to this. I would recommend trying that if you cannot find NYX Golden.

I love this blush, i brought it as i wanted a nice golden cream blush and i read reviews on MUA and i decided to purchase, when i recieved it i quickly applied it and it looked so nice and dewy, and the color is a nice goldey peachy color with hint of shimmer great for all skin tones but i think this would flatter people with lighter skin tones as it contains shimmer particles, very similar to mac blushes but NYX are cheaper and i would say better product overall.

I've hit pan on this blush already!! :) on my skin, it's a baby pink with gold shimmer. You can't see the shimmer unless you're in direct sunlight and it doesn't make your face look like a disco ball. I use my fingers to apply. Very pigmented so a little goes along way. The cream feels more like a mousse; its feels very light on my skin. Once I apply the cream blush, I top off with nars luster blush :)

I have several of the NYX cream blushes and this is one of my favorite, sans the slight glittery affect it has.
The consistency is to die for. It's so creamy and almost like a mousse. It blends well and has staying power. You absolutely can't beat the price either!

This blush is a nice peachy-nude with flecks of golden shimmer throughout. I didn't expect much from this, but I really like it. I have a dark tan so it doesn't show up very well on me, but I like to use it on the tops of my cheekbones for the shimmery effect. Sometimes if I'm going out I actually use it as a base for my powder highlighter (Mac's Honor.. which is also supposed to be a blush).
As far as texture, this blush is smooth and creamy, glides on easily, and lasts (on me) for hours. A tiny bit goes a long way, and the shimmer isn't too chunky or overpowering. Just a nice subtle sparkle in the sunlight. All in all, considering how dirt cheap this is, I would probably repurchase!

I always hate to be a party pooper for products, but this product just didn't do anything for me. I am very very pale and i simply don't like obvious shimmer in my blush. This blush has in my opinion, very obvious shimmer. If i stand in the light you can clearly see golden shimmery bits on my cheeks which i terribly dislike. I was hoping for something much more subtle. I also don't see the "peach" in this blush unlike other reviewers. It's just a sheer muddy brown on my skin. If i apply a little bit i don't get much color payoff (even though i'm so pale), just glitter/shimmer and if i apply more the color is a) not flattering, b) super shimmery. Staying power is good but i will probably never reach for this product at all. If you don't like shimmer on your face, stay far away from this.

I have NYX's cream blushes in Golden and Natural, both are great. As others have said, 'Golden' is a misnomer as its a natural pinkish beige with a very slight shimmer. I've got neutral fair skin and strawberry blonde hair and its about the most natural colour blush i've ever found.
I apply mine with my fingertips and like most NYX products, it is a good safe cheap but great quality cream blush that rivals its expensive cousins. Definitely worth buying.

I dislike how the names of NYX products can be so off or misleading. This creme blush is not golden at all..the only thing golden about it is the very finely milled shimmer/microscopic glitter. This blush is so pretty...it is a nude, light very natural beige/light bronze-ish pink that can be worn all year round. It can be layered on for more intensity. It is also very lasting and comparable to creme blushes from MAC such as lilicent or ladyblush

This blush goes against everything I look for when buying a blush, yet I love it. I have oily skin and stay away from anything with shimmer or cream formulas, but have made an exception with this particular blush.
It is a dusty nude rose with fine shimmer, and although it appears as a cream forumla, it has a whipped or mousse-like texture when touched. It dries to a powder finish and is not greasy at all. A little product goes a long way, and a light hand is needed when picking up product either with a brush or fingertips.
This is quite long-lasting and gives me about 6 hours wear, before starting to lose it's intensity. I prefer to wear this in the winter months when my skin is drier, and on overcast days when I need a bit of extra glow to compensate for the crappy weather.

This is an AWESOME color, especially for summer. It looks rosey/dark pink in the pan, but when you put it on it really does come off as a deep golden tan. I use my MAC 187 brush to apply it to the apples of my cheeks and it's absolutely adorable. A little bit goes an extremely long way with this stuff so it'll last you forever. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it is TOO creamy (almost like cake frosting) and can get a bit messy if you're not careful with it. Definitely not something I would use on my eyes but for cheeks it's a really beautiful product when used carefully and applied with a good brush.

I really like this blush. I bought this and Rose Petal from the Cherry Culture website. Golden is a more natural peach hue with slight shimmer. The shimmer particles are very small and not visible to the eye.
I feel the name is slightly misleading as I almost did not purchase this due to its name. Like others have said, this is very pigmented and a touch will for the entire cheek area. I am using this now in the summer as I love cream blushes but in winter all my cream blushes tend to harden and it becomes a little more difficult to blend. I find a trick is to either blow my hairdryer at it or rub it a little between my fingers before application.
It is also of a generous size and for the price, a definite buy! I am approximately NC30 for reference.

I got this sight unseen from Cherryculture.com (right now all orders over $50 are 20% off!) b/c I love cream blushes. I tried it on right out of the box, which I think was a mistake because it had been sitting on my porch in the sun = slightly melty. Well, actually that's the texture of the blush. It is very, very creamy and thick almost, and very smooth. The color itself (like most NYX colors, is not what you would think of with a name like "golden") is a lighter peachy pink color with gold shimmer. Although, those shimmer haters should not be afraid because it's pretty subtle. It lasts a good while, but without primer underneath (I never use it so I can't say how it would work *with* primer) it seems to fade after say, 6 hours. The only concern I would warn others of is the thickness: it may not be for girls with oilier/blemish prone skin. I have fairly dry skin, so this was great for me, but I can imagine it slipping off or clogging pores for others. HTH!

This was my first creme style blush and looks wise it's similar to mac blushes, I never tried mac creme blushes so I can't really compare them. This color is nice, goes on smoothly, very inexpensive, I found this blush is very pigmented but doesn't last that long on me as my powder blushes from mac last, but I don`t think thats the case for everyone. I got it on sale price for under 7$, so its worth the price and I will be trying out brighter colors from this line.

NYX cream blushes come in the same packaging as MAC for a fraction of the price. I found golden at Long's discount bin for only $2.19. Golden seems to have some shimmer and gives my checks a nice peachy glow. I'm NC15 and use the MAC 188 to apply this product. Drugstore.com carries NYX cream bluses for $4.99 each.
Like everyone said already, NYX cream blush stays on forever and is so easy to blend compared to powder. I did not notice any weird smells. I prefer cream in the winter when my skin is dry. I also ordered Tea Rose, Glow and Orange from d/s.com. Can't wait to get it.

This is a really great product. It's a dusty natural rose with a little bit of gold shimmer. The texture is very creamy and blendable, but it doesn't feel too heavy on my skin. It also doubles as a nice lipstick. It's great for the price, and the packaging is sleek and portable. I've heard that it fits in a Mac blushpan and is easily depotable - but I can't confirm or deny, as I don't do any depoting. I would love to try more colors, but many of them looked too bold for my extra-pale cool toned skin.
