This adorable little blush is super affordable and perfection. It's the perfect color in my opinion. Lasts all day long, subtle shimmer, natural looking, and comes in super cute packaging. I couldn't ask for more.

I bought this because I read it was a dupe for Orgasm, except this was all light shimmer on me and my mother. for reference we are both NC25- NC30 and we both thought it too light. I returned it.

Looooove! Makes me all glowy.. Good dupe for NARS Orgasm. Little shimmer.

I was hesitant to get this because of the shimmer, as all of my other NYX blushes are matte. I love the formula because it applies so smooth and blends out well.
I agree that this color is a dupe of NARS orgasm, but so much better in so many ways. It doesn't have chunky glitter in it and has much more finely milled texture, in my opinion. It gives your cheeks the 'just pinched' look as the name implies, but also an elegant sheen.
It lasts all day without turning splotchy like the NARS blushes do on my skin.
100% satisfaction with this product, compared to the disappointment I've experienced with every NARS blush I've ever purchased. If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative, check the NYX blushes out!!

this can be a dupe for NARS orgasm. i got this because it was either spend $4 for this or $27 for nars.. i went with this and was not disappointed. great color payoff and not too shimmery/glittery.

I really like this blush. This is my first NYX product in general, and I know I'll be buying more from this brand.
This blush is a beautiful coral-peachy-pink with minimal goldish shimmer. It's modestly pigmented and gives my fair, warm-netural skin a gorgeous flush. I apply it with my E.L.F. blush brush and it lasts... for a while, but not as long as alot of other blushes I own. Hence the 4 lippies- I own cheaper blushes that last longer than this one. I find that mineral blushes last ALOT longer on my skin than regular powder ones. So, my $4 Wet 'n' Wild mineral blush in Rose Shimmer- a similar color to NYX Pinched- would be my first choice over this one when I reach for a blush in my makeup basket.
Another gripe is the packaging. It's just awful. It's difficult to get it open, and the plastic is just pathetically flimsy. However, I do love the NYX logo. It's classy. I just wish their packaging was more similar to E.L.F.'s, which has fantastic blush and eyeshadow compacts.
I can't wait for my next trip to Ulta to pick up more NYX stuff!

I love this blush so so much! This is the first blush I've ever had from NYX and I am sad I waited this long! It is super pigmented and the slight shimmer gives your skin a flawless glowy flush. This looks great on my fair skin!

I love this blush! Although it is very shimmery, it leaves my skin glowing especially during the winter. It brings a lot of warmth to my face and has to be one of my favorite blushes of all time.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This was the first NYX blush I ever purchased and I love it! It's super pigmented and gives my cheeks a nice glow. I apply it with either my e.l.f blush brush or an angled brush I have from harmons. I can't wait to try more shades!

This was one of the first Blushes by Nyx that I tried out. The colour is great on me. Looks good on my skin all year round and is a staple in my makeup collection. Definitely something I reach for on an almost daily basis and when in a rush. Packaging is nice, if your sticker doesn't come off well, use a bit of methelayted spirits to get it off.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Awesome color! Very glowy with a gorgeous sheen! It's not very dark, so it might be too light for someone with darker skin, but for light to medium skin tones, it is just gorgeous. Not for people who like matte colors either. I hate when people buy a color like this that has obvious shimmer in it and then come on here and give it a bad rating for the shimmer. Why did you buy it if you don't like that? It makes the rating low based on peoples preference of look instead of quality of product. I personally love shimmery blush so if you like that, this color and NYX blushes in general are awesome!

I love the gold shimmer this light pink blush gives off. It comes in a simple plastic packaging, the compact is a bit defective on mine, it is difficult to open. I am a Clay 2 in IMAN so this blush does not show up at all on the first application. It's a bit powdery but still good quality especially for the price.

For the price, I'm quite pleased with this blush. I wouldn't consider it to be a dupe for Orgasm, although it does have some similar qualities (e.g. golden shimmer). This color is slightly more pronounced than Orgasm, and it leans more toward a bright pink than a coral-pink (if that makes sense). If you're wary of shimmer/sparkle, then I wouldn't suggest this blush to you - it has quite a lot of both. Pretty color, overall, and the pigmentation is excellent. Be careful not to pick up too much product on your brush or you'll look like a clown - a little goes a long way! This blush is also exceptionally long lasting. After 8 hours of wearing it, the color is still visibly apparent on my skin.

where this is not a horrible blush, its also not a great one. i continue to wear this every day mostly because i haven't found one i like better and i am on a budget. i do like the color and i don't find it to be sparkly at all. its a very cheap dupe for nars orgasm and thats what i like about it so much. there isn't anything i completely dislike about this product, other than it doesn't have superb color payoff. don't get me wrong, its great for the price. it could be a little better though.

God awful sparkly mess, and the pink undertone actually stains your skin. This is cheap and tacky. Also the compacts always break (clear windows fall out constantly). The only shade I like is Stone.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
One of the most flattering shades for an NC40 skintone. I love how naturally flushed it makes my skin look. Not too shimmery and not too powdery either. :)

After scouring Manhattan for Pinched upon reading so many rave reviews on MUA, I finally caved and purchased it off ULTA (I am always reluctant to pay for shipping). However, I am less than thrilled with this product. The color payoff is not that good, which is fine if you're interested in an EXTREMELY no-makeup look. My skin is really fair for an Asian, and Pinched is still barely visible. Most days, I prefer to use Pinky (also by NYX) even though Pinky looks completely unwearable in the packaging. For a more subtle blush, I prefer my tried and true CoverGirl Cheekers Blush in Brick Rose.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond, Coarse Eyes: Green
The colour is absolutely gorgeous on my pale skin - a very wearable rose with a hint of coral and a soft golden shimmer. I think this will suit any skintone except for really dark skin. Perfect for every day and also nice to add some shimmer to another blush or bronzer. I even use it as an eyeshadow sometimes.
Pros: the prize (of course), suitable for most skintones, great for every day, multiple ways of use!
Cons: a little less pigmented, doesn't last all day (though you can change that with using a cream blush underneath), fallout of product if you don't take care, the packaging quality is low (but what can you expect for this price!).
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Black, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
The packaging is very cheap. It seems like it would break if I drop it lightly.
It's a dupe of Nars Orgasm but not as peachy and shimmery. This blush is great for everyday use. It's not very pigmented so it takes two strokes before the color shows up on my NC 30 skin.
The staying power is decent. 3-5 hours depending on the weather.
Overall, this blush is good for its price.

Pinched feels like a dupe for NARS Armour but a bit more corally...not as peachy/corally as Orgasm though. A warmer pinky coral with gold reflects...lovely, lovely, lovely color. I am NW20 with black/brown hair, brown eyes. My other fave blushes are MAC Fleur Power, NYX cream blushes in Glow and Natural.
