This blush is good. I own this and Dusty Rose. At first, I much preferred Dusty Rose but now I am starting to wear Terracotta more. Terracotta is a really perfect match for my medium olive complexion and I am starting to think it gives me more of a natural almost sun-kissed glow. They are both great. Both are highly pigmented and last all day for me. I plan on buying more colors.

EDIT: I don't wear this one much. One day I looked in the mirror and felt I looked too orange. Plus it is a little too shimmery. I still absolutely love dusty rose and this one is okay if used very sparingly.

This is a pretty neutral blush with shimmer. In the pan, the shimmer looks a bit scary but on the skin it isn't overly noticable and gives off more of a glow than anything. Good pigmentation and blends out nicely. This is the only NYX blush I own, but after trying this for the past several days I will probably buy more. Great price, good product. I took off one lippie because it isn't very long lasting. I have to touch up every 3-4 hours.

I love this blush. It's neutral enough for everyday wear, but gives subtle Colorado. It contains some shimmer, but it's light. I love this and won't go anywhere without it.

Ok i hate the multicoloured glitter in this. Seriously i looked like a discoball when i wore it. Its a light pink-gold...sort of like a watered down, filled with chockfull of glitter version of Rubenesque paintpot. I love the colour, hate the glitter. I use this as an eyeshadow. Awesome! Just make sure you use a primer under this, or it will crease and dissappear. Decent pigmentation though.
As for price, this is the cheapest you can go and its great coz i can buy different shades to try and see what looks nice on my skin, esp since i'm a noob to blush and am still scared of packing on the colour (for fear of clown blush). I bought 6 actually, which i will review as well.
The quilted pattern is cute, but the compact itself doesnt open easily i find. Not a huge problem i guess. Would i buy this again? No man. No.

I own six or seven Nyx blushes and like them very much. They are good bang for the buck. They provide good pigmentation, blend well, and I find them among the easiest to apply. I prefer application with a 187 or a fan brush, then buffing out as needed with a kabuki or full brush.

All Nyx blushes fail to last long on me, though. I get 2-4 hours and then need a touch-up. That seems typical of most brands, though. I have very dry skin. I apply over moisturizer, primer serum, foundation and (sometimes) powder, and I think my cheeks just suck up the moisture from my foundation and makes everything else disappear.

I have probably NW10 skin: very pale with strong cool undertones. I have auburn hair and blue-green eyes. Terracotta reads as a sheer, warm coral with a hint of cool berry. Maybe I'm making the berry up, but I tell myself it's not too warm for me.

I like terracotta when I am trying to swing to the warmer side of things, either because my lippie or eyeshadow is too warm for me, or I want a more neutral cheek for a red lip shade, in which case I apply very lightly with a fan brush and buff. (Mac Blushbaby is a better choice for neutral on my skin, but I never get around to buying it!) It's the one non-cool blush I have, and I will buy it again.

The packaging is a bit flimsy, but it manages being stuck in my day makeup bag and squished in my purse. I will someday depot my Nyx blushes and shadows...

This has been my go to blush all summer. I'm NC 35-40 for reference and this blush looks beautiful on medium or tanned skin. Leaves a nice peachy glow with shimmer, and the price is fantastic I ordered them from ebay I got 3 blushes for about $10.00.

This a beautiful, sheer, shimmery peach blush. I often dust this over another blush and it instantly gives it a sheer peachy glow. Love this for summer. I really like these NYX blushes. I can't buy these locally and have bought mine on Ebay or Cherry Culture. So you are guessing a little on the colors. This is one I really like.

This somewhat reminds me of NARS Luster- which I also just bought. It's a pretty shimmery apricot. It goes on sheer and shimmery, but you can layer it with Golden or Orange cream blush from NYX. It's also better used as a highlighter on darker skintones.

When i saw this blush in Ulta, i was a little hesitant to buy it. It was a color that i never pictured myself wearing and had a bit too much glitter for my taste. But im so glad that i took a chance and bought it anyways! lol. Its so beautiful! Looks amazing on my warm skin tone! Gives me a glowy look. The color transfers so much different on my skin. In the pan, it looks like a orange, bronze, rusty, slight red shade, but on the skin its just a nice golden coral blush with gold glitter. Its a gorgeous summer shade. Its very pigmented, only one dab will do. Its super soft and lasts for more than a few hours. The price is also nice, only 5.99 at Ulta, and its definitely worth more than that! lol. Amazing product :)
