NYX ♥ Powder Blush Review

Hello My lovely dolls ♥

For the past weeks i wasn't able to make a review on these pretty blushed that i purchased at a online shop. And these past weeks i was like obsessed with makeup, i'm kinda like a makeup FREAK at the moment.. O_0 hehehehehe!

But any ways i needed to purchase myself these pretty cute powder blushes which are famous and they are n the brand of NYX. But i purchased these babies at a online shop because here in Legazpi where i live there's NO pretty branded makeup & stuff here :'( 
It's a good thing on some online shop they encourage you to try and purchase but before i purchase anything i make sure that the online seller is 101 % TRUSTED & NOT A SPAMMER. Luckily i came across at a online shop called the Hotboutique shop by Carmella  and the owner is Miss Carmella Yza Miguel.
Honestly i have brought lot's of cosmetics on her shop and yet i haven't got time to give them reviews :( s sorryyyy!!

But anyways i bought from miss Carmella's shop two Powder Blushes :

Rose Garden 
I just bought two Powder blushes from her shop :)

The third powder blush i purchase from Rosita Gonzales owner of Shopgirl :

Desert Rose

Off to the Review. . . . . . . .

Starting with Taupe , the color of this powder blush is a soft light choco grey-ish brown. 
This blush can be used for contouring the face, because for medium - light complexion it's best for this type of blush & also for yellowish warm tones too. 
For skin types like pale tones it can be used as blush because the color will stand out great for pale tones. 

I honestly use this as for my contour because it gives my face more structured and a bit slimmer since my face is turning out to be like a "SIOPAO" :(.

Below is a comparison without the flash of my camera.
The blush looks a but medium light.

Now with the flash of the camera you can tell that the blush turns into a bit light, meaning it will look naturally fine if you use his as for your contour.

Next is Rose Garden, this type of blush has some gold iridescence in it, it's not that pigmented, and this is best for as your highlight. If you want to have those pinkish gold highlight on areas like on top of your apples of your cheeks this blush can give you that pinkish iridescence gold highlight.

The last blush is Desert Rose, the blush has a a dark pink with a mixture of a slightly red on it. Plus with one swatch of my finger it is very pigmented.
So my advice for this tyoe of pigmented powder blush is too be careful not too overload it too much because if you overload this powder blush, honey you'll look like you just got spanked a lot. hehehehehe!!
Just try to pick up tiny amount of blush and apply it on the hallow of your cheeks. Why hallows? Because this can create your face a bit slimmer plus you can move your brush going a bit further to the apples. 

NO. 1 ADVICE  do not over load your blush on the cheeks because it wont turn out that great.

Below are my swatches of the powder blushes,
You can tell that Desert rose pop's out though without the flash of the camera, and Rose Garden isn't that pigmented but the light itself catches the tiny tiny gold iridescence in it. While for Taupe it stands out just fine.

Now with the flash of the camera, it did catch the colors of the powder blush, plus the colors is still the same too.


If i rate the powder blushes from scale 1 - 10 i'd go for 8 .
 The blushes has NO SCENT AT ALL. 
 The pigmentation is just fine. 
 The container that holds the blush in it is GREAT, because it holds the powder together.



Over all I have no Judgement on the powder blushes because it's easy to use with the right amount to use it. And it's not Chalky at all. Because i am very particular when it comes to blush. 

other than that Have a nice day & Take Care!
