OMG this product is AMAZING. I use a blush brush to apply this onto the apples of my cheek. It looks extremely bright in the pan but a small amount of this on my cheeks has the most amazing ethereal glow. I'm an NC42 and this blush is without a doubt the most natural glowy blush I've ever used. It gives a dewy finish to the cheeks and the color is very build able. Use a thin layer for a sheer glow or build it up for a more intense pinky color. Lasting power could be better but I am definitely impressed.

Ok this product it great for blondes. i cant use it sence i when brunette. it is sooo pigmented and has a great texture, will last you forever. the lid on my pacaging broke of in like a day though. just from tossing in on my bed. I HIGHLY RECOMEND that you only buy this if your fair skined, I tested it on all my friends(of every race/ ethnicity) and it looked clown like on every once skin , except for the less pigmented girls.

This blush is really pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I was a little scared because it looks so bright, but it was on sale, so I decided to give it a shot and I really like it! It looks much more natural after it's applied to the skin. I think this is going to last me a while, but I'll definitely repurchase after I'm finished with it.

Wow...I'm shocked by how much I adore this blush. I would always eye it while browsing the makeup department of my local drugstore, but I was never actually brave enough to purchase it. The color (a true hot pink) looks scary in the pan, but fabulous when applied (VERY SPARINGLY) onto the cheeks.

Ladies, be aware that a little of this blush goes an incredibly long way. This is one of the most highly pigmented blushes that I've ever owned. I literally tap my MAC 130 brush into the pan and it picks up enough product for BOTH cheeks. If you don't have a stippling brush, you could also use your finger tips (once again, a single gentle tap into the pan is enough).

The texture of this blush is very smooth and creamy. Some cream blushes are slighly waxy/hard and difficult to get onto a brush, but this picks up well and blends like a dream.

How would I describe this blush when applied? It gives the look of a natural, radiant flush. Despite how loud it appears in the pan, it's one of the most natural looking blushes that I've ever owned when it's sheered out onto the cheeks. I suppose I'd call this a true, cold weather blush. And I'm also shocked by the huge array of complexions that this suits. I tried this on myself (very light brown with warm undertones), my mom (olive with warm undertones), my friend (very pale with cool undertones) and my other friend (dark skinned with neutral undertones) and it looked great on all of us.

I would most definitely purchase this product again, but the one that I have now will probably last me for the rest of my life. Don't be intimidated by how garish it looks in the pan ladies! This blush is a great addition to any makeup collection. Kinda makes me want to try some more of the NYX Rouge Creams :D

ALSO, this blush is free of bismuth oxychloride, so it will not irritate sensitive skin.

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.
