I've owned both this and cinnamon for years. While I do use cinnamon more this is also wonderful. It's a warm red. Very very pigmented; finely milled; easily buildable and blendable, either over tinted moisturizer; in conjunction with matte bronzer or baked under powder. While I am prone to hives and milia, this causes no adverse reactions. It just creates a luminous flush (not sparkly) on my NC 30-35 olive skin. I apply very lightly and sparingly with a big brush; when applied this way, I think this could be universally flattering. One compact is probably a lifetime supply. Since it can go from a subtle flush to saturated war paint, I think this could be suitable for a variety of complexions. Although this is a powder, it works on my combination skin and doesn't accentuate dry patches.

I was looking for a true red blush and found the red NYX very nice to use gives a healthy look on cheeks. Use sparingly with a light touch. Very good quality for price.

This blush is insanely pigmented but when applied right, it gives the face such a beautiful flush of color. When I first saw this blush in my drugstore, I thought it was ridiculous for people to wear a red blush but when I got home and searched up reviews of it, it looked amazing! I'm usually a pink or coral blush fanatic but this color is absolutely gorgeous sheered out on the skin. There is very little fall-out and the texture is not powdery at all. Also, due the bright color of this blush, it wears pretty well. (You can definitely still see color on your cheeks after a full work day). I personally think it would be flattering on all skin tones (fair skinned people, use a light hand) and work for all four seasons. An amazing find!

Love it because this is so close to MAC's Frankly Scarlet. I was contemplating just buying the MAC but when I saw NYX's Red I was like wow very close and both are blue based reds which I love! This shade is very pigmented and very soft. I only have to touch my brush to the product and that's plenty of colour for my NW15-20 skin tone. It gives me a beautiful healthy flush. I love this shade it's so pretty and not a colour to fear because when done right it can look fantastic on a ton of skin tones:) Doesn't last as long as I would like about 4 hours on me. Still this is a great blusher to have in your arsenal that's for sure. Plus for the price I'm very happy with this. Recommended!

Long have I searched high and low for a highly pigmented true red powder blush. Found very good cheek stains in the color (bonne bell and pixi)..but no powder!I am a sci-art "true winter". I need very pure, very saturated color in my pigments for them to even show up on my skin! After some serious research I came across this little gem that fit everything I was looking for. It applies very well with blush, fan, and bronzing brushes. I have also used a dampened beauty blender with very good results. I do have to use a light hand because of the pigment intensity. But in the end ( even on my pale skin) it looks like I am naturally flushed. Pinched cheeks, not fake or overdone. For the price, it truly is a HG product.I did have to order off of amazon because Ulta did not stock this particular color.

This is a universally flattering red blush. Its more of a bright tomato red with a hint of coral. This is very pigmented. I just tap my brush lightly in this and I still have to sheer this out with face powder. I think that it lasts throughout the day as well. I just think that the packaging is a bit cheap and the formula is somewhat hard to work with. I think that it is not as blend-able as MAC, NARS, and now discontinued UD (powder) and Milani (Mineral) blushes. But this a great cheap blush. NYX variety of shades/finishes and quality ranks among the best at the drugstore IMO.

Purchase Place: Ricky'sPrice: $6.00Product: NYX Blush in Red PB24Skin type: Asian, Olive and SensitiveI'm a huge fan of NYX, mostly their lip glosses but I have recently grown fond of their blushes. Daily I use the Cinnamon but I finally got up the courage to try something bolder...I love the Red blush. I was so hesitant because it's such a bright color but I'll tell you it's just right and not too much!This is a definite go to on a day that needs a little color.

After about an hour of swatching different samples of NYX blushes in the beauty store, I decided on this one. Since I'm quite new to make up, I was heavy-handed on the 2nd pass and on my med-dark skin I looked like a circus clown! They weren't lying when its said that this brand is pretty pigmented which is a good thing for us woc. Anyway, with a light hand I had a nice subtle flush to my skin. However, I don't think this color is for me. In general, NYX blushes are great and I'll definitely repurchase more- they have a fan out of me for sure!

I love this blush! It is a beautiful deep blue-red. Some people say it is a dup for Nars Exhibit A, but I think that is more of an orange-toned red. I put that I would purchase this again, but I doubt I will ever hit the pan--it's not a color you would want to wear everyday, and you really have to apply it sparingly. It is really pigmented! That said, it looks absolutely gorgeous on, and I cannot recommend it enough. For reference, I am MAC NW15.
