I am a big fan of the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges, but these NYX cream blushes are just as good for so much cheaper. I was looking for a pink cream blush that would actually go on true to color on my cheeks without turning warm. This is definitely what I was looking for. It is VERY pigmented and creamy, so careful application is a must. A slight tap with a stippling brush into the pan produces an intense amount of color. I am an NC40-42 in MAC and I find that this shade really brightens my complexion. Not only does it instantly make me look healthy and awake, but it also lasts all day! Definitely a great product.

I LOVE this stuff. Ive tried all kinds of cream and powder blushes and a lot have one ingredient in common: bismuth oxychloride. I am very sensitive to this ingredient as well as Carmine, which is Crushed beetles if you are interested.
Tarte Cheekstains have both ingredients, as well as MAC cremeblush In fact MOST blushes and foundations contain Bismuth, and it causes intense itching and red bumps.
Cheapness is a virtue, and NYX has learned it well. Super cheap stuff is garbage we all know that, but I've found more often high end stuff is even crappier. NYX cream blushes are high quality, as well as highly pigmented. I've tried the res,t from 2 bucks to 50 bucks....this is the BEST...and its ten Canadian dollars.
I have Hot Pink and Glow. I have just ordered Red Cheeks. I am NC42 and these colors look real on me. I don't want to look like I'm made up and this formulation is super-blendable with your fingers, a brush or a sponge. What's not to love: The fact that my local drugstore doesn't carry ALL the colors! <3

Finally one of these I really like, since Boho was a bust. "They" say that in order to find your best blush color, you should pinch your cheeks and use the color they turn after that. Mine turn hot pink, probably like everyone else. Still, it gave me an idea so I exchanged Boho for Hot Pink. It is HIGHLY pigmented so just a touch of my MAC 188 blended like crazy gives me the nicest, in-from-the-cold flush, I love it. Seems to last a long time too, at least all day (I have dry cheeks) so no worries about reapplying. At the rate I use this, in miniscule amounts, it will probably last me the rest of my life. Which is fine, since I like it but hopefully won't get bored too fast and ignore it. However, it's a cool toned pink so I also grabbed Glow for a more peachy-pink when I wear warmer tones and that works just as well and looks just as good. I'll probably get Golden and Rose Petale next, but have to order or eBay them since Ulta doesn't carry those. I'm now sorry I waited so long to add them to my blush collection and will be swapping out most of my powder blushes for creams (these, if I can) since my skin is a lot drier now, they just work and look better. I wish they'd make some more shimmery shades but still, good stuff!

I just bought this product and love it. It is so pigmented so with just a little dab you'll be good. The packaging is nothing amazing but I like it. I don't think ill ever finish this blush but its such a nice color.

Wow, I absolutely love this. I've never tried applying it with a brush but with my finger I just dab the product slightly and it's enough for one cheek. It has a nice creamy consistency, almost like a cream eyeshadow and it is very pigmented. I've never had any problems with it, I just have to remember that less is more with this product. The color is a bright pink, it reminds me of the Flamingo blush by the brand Sleek. I like the packaging too and you get so much product it would probably last me years even if I used it every day. Would repurchase this one and I definitely will purchase the other colors.
Edit: I love wearing this as a lipstick as well, it's not very moisturizing so I have to layer a gloss over it but the color is beautiful.

UPDATE 18. March 2012: upgrading this to 5 lippies - I like this because it lasts on me longer than my other cream blushes. I have Tea Rose by NYX too, and t has a more mousse-consistency, but doesn't last as long as this one on me. I still use it just like described under: on my cheekbones, do not bring it much downwards, but rather towards the side of the face, do not go close to centre of the face. I DO like it, but a small duo-fiber brush would me much better to apply this with than my big MAC one... Oh, and the colour is pretty pigmented, so one should be careful with the amount - I think this would last me probably 10 years using it daily with the amount I use...! This would probably work really well for dark-skinned girls :)
I don't really want to give this a bad review, because it's a good blush, but sometimes a bit difficult to wear, as I have to place it slightly different than my regular blush (which by the way is the same type, just another colour). With my regular blush I can make a very natural cheek colour, and just swipe it over almost the whole cheek, while with this I have to concentrate more on the cheekbone to make it look nice, and also can't bring it as close to the centre of the face as with my regular one. It DOES look nice on me (NC20-25), but I just don't use it as often because it needs a little more work, but it's definitely a good blush - easy to use, nice staying power and brightens the face.

This blush is......bright.. It scared me when i first bought this because i am super pale! I apply this by very very VERY lightly tapping a mac 188 or 187 into in and then dot it on my cheek. Then i take a flat-top power brush and blend it out. It looks natural, unlike all the powder blushes i own! Its like i am blushing from within! I would buy this again if i ever ran out which is not likely!

This is a very pigmented product for my skin tone so a little goes a long way. It gives me a nice color on my cheeks, and it was very affordable at $7 at my local Ulta.

Amazing cream blush, I've tried expensive makes and cheaper makes, but I bought this on a whim, and I haven't looked back! It is EXTREMELY pigmented, perhaps too pigmented, so a tiny little swipe is all that is needed with my fair skin. Staying power is amazing and I can tell that this pot is going to last me ages!

Wow, this stuff is bright and lovely. A little goes a very long way and it lasts fairly well, even in a California heat wave. At first I thought it was going to be similar to NARS creme blush, which has a slightly drier formula but NYX is far creamier and so only a tap of product and blending like crazy is the key and because the formula is very moist, its finish is dewy and so oily skinned girls will probably want to finish with maybe a light dusting of powder (bronzer looks really pretty with this blush), while dry skinned girls (like myself) will love the formula. It doesn't feel unnatural or sticky and hasn't broken out my sensitive acne-prone skin. I probably won't buy it again, only because a) you get a lot b) you use very little. *Tip: If you find that it is still too bright for you, even when using just a pinch, mix with a little Aquaphor/ Eucerin skin salve - it sheers it out just a touch, color will still has its lasting power and it won't cause breakouts... and it makes a very pretty lip tint.
