Dusty Rose is a muted rosy color with undertones of both mauve and brown, but on the whole pretty neutral. The reviews speak to the fact that this color can work on practically all skin tones, and the matte finish is universally appealing. I love a good shimmer blush just as much as the next person, but consistently find myself reaching for matte shades that aren't super bright and work with multiple eye and lip looks. Dusty Rose is a contender in that department.
Unlike my experience with a NYX HD blush, these powder blushes aren't so highly pigmented that you're afraid to apply them but they are definitely buildable and provide a natural looking flush. This color in particular is creamy and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb, it is subtle and classy.
On a final note, NYX prices are consistently among the lowest at the drugstore; I believe even Cover Girl and Maybelline blushes might cost more than these do. Very superior quality for the price. I wish I could find these powder blushes in more stores, they are currently MIA from some of my local stores :(

Amazing product, great value. The shade is a pink colour but with a lot of warmth and a "neutral" quality about it (not bright pink at all). Peach blush lovers like myself will be comfortable with using this colour. It gives me (NC30, dark hair) a classic rose makeup look. The pigmentation is not as strong as many high end brands but decent and can be built up. The lasting power is average but does get a little blotchier near the end. I love this colour so much and it's unique in my collection. I may be searching for a high end dupe because this packaging doesn't seem like it's going to last as long as the product and I hoped for better staying power.

I love love love the colour of this blush. It is, like the name suggests, a dusty muted rose shade, which is very flattering on my skintone and features (Nc25, blonde).The pigmentation is also on point, in my opinion: it's not overly strong, so you can be a little careless with it, but it does add colour to your cheeks and you can always build it up. The finish is beautiful: satin, shimer free and skin-like. It blends easily and it doesn't kick up a lot of powder.

The only downside I found is that it doesn't last very well on my skin. I'm not sure if this happens to a lot of people or if it's just me (although nothing tends to last well on my skin). I was actually willing to give up on it, because it would completely fade within 1.5 hour, until I started using a primer underneath and now it lasts several hours :)

The packaging is standard, not amazing but reasonably sturdy and functional. It comes with 0.14oz/4g of product.

It's very affordable and it comes in a sturdy plastic case. The pigmentation is just right and I don't get a lot of fall out when I dip my RT blush brush on pan. It gives of a beautiful old rose blush on the cheeks. I was not expecting that a product cheaper than other drugstore brands can be this impressive! Worth every penny I spent!

Let me start off with telling you guys that Im pretty impressed with NYX. Lipsticks, eyebrow magic marker thingy are awesome. This blush...not so much. Of course, I'm old and pale, so there's that. Might try one of the cream blushes, because I can't stop buying makeup! For the love of god, somebody stop me!

One of my top 5 blush choices! Love this color and formula. Pigmented, blendable and looks quite natural. Very buildable as well. It performs as well as my Nars and Tarte blushes.

FINALLY a cheap blush that compares to the big leagues. In the past I've used the likes of NARS Orgasm and Marc Jacobs Shameless Blush in Promiscuous. I searched high and low for a dupe of the aforementioned Marc Jacobs blush that was less expensive (because ain't nobody got $36 to spend on blush, even though the colour was perfect) and finally found this NYX formula.

The colour: perfect on my super pale, cool toned skin. Most drugstore blushes, in my experience, are a little... off. Colour is surprisingly close to MJ Promiscuous when it's applied.

Pigmentation: surprisingly awesome.

Formula: goes on great, blends seamlessly, and lasts longer than the MJ variety (!!).

This is my new HG staple blush. I can't see myself switching it up in the near future. I do, however, want to experiment with more shades - because after all, at $5.00 I 'could' play with nearly 7 colours for the price of one of my old Marc Jacobs go-tos!

Doesn't last at all on my fair combination skin, even with a primer. Nice color but it just doesn't perform:(
