From the reviews on here, it would seem like the blushes are a bit different depending on the batches? Mine is a light pink with some very small shimmers. The staying power for this is not bad and the colour looks natural enough on my nc20 skin, but it is so powdery. I had the same problem with another blush by NYX in the shade Dusty rose (the only 2 NYX blushes I own). No matter how gently i tap or touch the blush with my brush, A HUGE amount of powder appears on the top and it's a hassle to not get it all over the place.

This is an okay product, nothing to rave about, but I'd say give it a try if you don't mind powdery fallout :)

I was hoping this blush would be the nice, light mauvey-pink color I've seen in most swatches, like the one in the second picture on this page. Instead, it's much more like the third picture. This color is not flattering on me, personally. I'm a pale (NC-15) girl and this blush is peachy/coral color which makes me look sunburned. Not a good look for me.

Price wise, it's fairly inexpensive (I purchased off Amazon), but I paid too much for a blush I'll rarely use, unless by some miracle I manage to tan.

The batch number, if anyone is interested is: 04102011. I'm guessing this is the date of production and one of the newer versions.

Overall, I would recommend trying before buying if you can.

Love the blush. Very soft and natural looking, with a nice texture. I am a NW15 and this is a wonderful shade for me. However, I'm not sure there would be much pay-off if you not a pretty fair person.

Angel is a flattering neutral light rose-pink that gives a flush of satiny sheen and not a shimmery/sparkly finish on my NC37 skin. The color and finish are perfect for those who are going for "dewy natural" and not for a brighter shimmery pink. In fact, the satiny sheen glow of this finish is one of my favorite blush finishes - perfect for every day, any season and whatever color coordination.

However, NYX Angel is quite possibly the most powdery blush I've used - to the point that it sort of crumbles in the pan when I dip my brush in to get product. As a result, a massive amount of product gets everywhere every time I want to use it. Also, since the blush is so powdery, that means that the blush is loosely packed and prone to breakage. A bit of a corner of product in the pan somehow got loose when the blush was in my mu bag (I never dropped it!) and blush was all over the place. I cleaned the blush out, hoping that it would be ok. Big mistake.
The part that broke off only gave way to more opportunities for blush to break off, since more edges of the blush were exposed to nothingness (aka no support to hold it in the pan from the rest of the product.) The next time I looked at the blush, a fourth of it was loose in the packaging.
The blush is also in cheap plastic packaging. The flip top lid is already loose on mine so it sort of falls back and forth without any of its original control.

The old formulation of this blush was HG for me (matte and muted baby pink); I just received a replacement and it's definitely shimmery, pinker (less dusty), and I detect micro-glitter...not sure what I think about it yet, but I'll re-review after giving it a go.

Most light pink blushes dont show up on my nc40 skintone or turn coral on me (like tarte dollface or pf happy booster). However, I bought this blush because of its cool undertone and it looks lavender rather than a light pink. Its looks like a lighter version of nyx raisin. Its a pretty color but not an everyday color. if you are fair and have cool undertones, it may look more pink than purple. I may try nyx peach as I heard its not really a peach but a light pink.

This blush is the perfect pale pink colour! I use it for my everyday make up, and it gives me lovely rosy cheeks.

One thing that I don't like about it is that it crumbles... a lot. So when I dab my brush into the blush, it gets everywhere. That's really the only reason to why I didn't give it a 5.
Although, it's still very creamy and easy to work with when you got it on your skin.

In sweden where I live, NYX is really expensive.. This blush cost me about 14 $, and that was on SALE. So I'm guessing the regular price must have been about 23 $ , which is TOO much! Next time I want to buy something from NYX, I'm going to order it online :)

All in all, this is a great blush. And I will definitely buy it again!

This is nothing like I thought it would be. I had to order it online because my Ulta does not carry this color. First of all, it is NOT a dupe for MAC Well Dressed blush. I've seen people say that on beauty blogs and reviews and I totally disagree. Well Dressed is not matte, and is way pinker and brighter. Angel is more of a dirty brownish pink. It looks almost like a tan/brown color in the pan. On my NW20 skin it looks more pink than in the pan but I'm not crazy about it. It's kind of blah. Definitely won't repurchase.

I looked at a couple of blog swatches online before ordering this and it appeared darker in the photos than the actual product. To me, 'Angel' is a pale blue-toned pink with minimal shimmer and in terms of pigmentation, it is a bit sheer. On my NC30 skin-tone, I found it hard to show up properly and needed to layer this several times. I wouldn't choose to use this on it's own, but it has been great for layering on top of creme blushes. The texture lets me down too. It's quite chalky/powdery and crumbles a little when I sweep my brush over it. It doesn't last for very long and I think this would best suit paler skin-tones because they would have an easier time with this colour showing up.

As with Peach, the texture of this shade of blush is a little chalky and powdery. The color is sheer, but not totally unpigmented. I think this color is as cute as Peach... but in the pan only. On my cheeks, this is, ironically, pure hell for me. I blame this on the lilac undertone, which is a color that will never look good on my NC30 skin. Therefore, this one will be going up for swaps!
