:: Lips to Cheeks Pt. 2::

as i promise, now i'm going to do bit reviews and swatches on NYX blushes that i owned at the moment.

there are 24 colours of NYX Powder Blush to choose from and i only have two in my hand which are natural and peach.what i love about NYX powder blush is the texture is fine and smooth and the colour is well pigmented. i love natural because it has a very soft pink blush which makes my cheek a natural flush of blush and great for everyday look. Peach is great for smokey look as the colour is coral-pinkish and suitable with a nude lipstick.

next is the NYX Rouge Cream blush which range from 10 shades and i only owned 'Glow' at the moment. i'm quite dissapointed with the shade since at the website the colour appears to be pink but when i received it, it's kinda red and not suitable for daily look. the colour also tends to appear strong. i normally used this blush as a base for my powder blush on certain occasion to make my blush long lasting. it's great to be used after foundation and before setting powder to enhance the glowing cheek. with this kind of blush, i use my ring finger and blends it on the apple of the cheek only. just a small dab is enough as the blush quite hard to blend and tends to give unnatural look if applied wrongly so be careful~;)
here u go..

i will definitely get more NYX blushes next time since there are a lot of colours to choose from and the quality is great.i'm planning to get these pretty babies: NYX Powder blush in Angel, Pinky,Nutmeg and Sand (work for contouring, i guess) and NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Rose Petal, Natural, Hot Pink and Golden. i am yet to try the mosaic powder blush tho~

stay tune for MAC blushes review and swatches (that i owned;d)~

till then,
