NYX has fastly become my favorite drugstore brand. Once impossible to locate, Ulta is expanding their selection and I have found some wonderful products that I considered ordering online only a few short weeks ago. I especially love their blush!


My little collection is growing!


My must-trys:
Powder blush - Pinched (left) and Angel (right).
I've read several reviews that claim Pinched is a dupe for NARS' Orgasm. I don't own that one so I can't really agree, but it definitely does offer that same pinky-peach glow with slight golden shimmer. Angel is beautiful! I've had it for about two years now and it's the perfect light pink flush.



Creme blush - Natural (left) and Glow (right)
I'm one hundred percent on a creme blush kick. With the weather getting warmer, I think cremes are natural and  youthful looking. These are both extremely creamy and pigmented. In fact, I think I care for the texture more than the MAC Cremeblends because these glide on more evenly.



Body Bronzer in Daydream of Lanai.
I ordered this from MsCuppyCakes.com awhile back, and although I think it's way too shimmery as a face bronzer, I love it as a blush! Just one sweep across your cheeks and you get a beautiful bronzed flush. This is also great for dusting over your shoulders or anywhere else on the body you want a golden cast.


HD Blush in Menage A Tois (left) and Mosaic blush in Love (right)
It's no secret that bright poppy and orange are the IT colors of the season. Flip through any magazine and vibrant, saturated color is spread across the lips and cheeks. I love these colors! The HD blush is a bit messy, so I'm not a fan of that. You turn the container and a finely ground powder is dispensed, but it goes everywhere. I still love this particular shade though. The same goes for the mosaic blush in Love. I swirl my brush throughout each block of color and a pretty orange appears on my cheeks.


Have you tried NYX cheek products? What are your thoughts?

  1. Thanks for writing about the blushes! I've been considering trying some of the NYX blushes, as right now, I only have NYX eyeshadows (love them!) Thanks for the review!

  2. I love your posts! I can't find NYX brand in any of my drugstores. I guess I'll have to buy online; I've been wanting to try it for a while now.

  8. Oh, I have a quick question regarding the creme blushes - do you find them to be complexion clogging? That's always been my fear of creme blushes (or foundation, or all of that) since I use mineral make-up and powders.

  12. Ooo I've never tried before but I am definitely down for trying it, especially if I can find it locally at the drug store! Thanks for the great review!

  13. Cute products - I love the quilted packaging.

    NYX isn't that easy to find where I live - I think I've only seen them sold in certain pharmacies (Rexall/PharmaPlus).

    I've tried an eyeshadow (great colour but felt kind of "soft"), some chubby lip pencils (they're ok), a lipstick (hated it - discoball glitter!) and a lip liner.

  14. Andi, Lilly, Katherine, and Natasha: I hope you do give them a try!

    Girl and Closet: Thank you Veronika! I hope you had a great Wednesday as well ;)

    Kate: I do not find them to be complexion clogging, but I don't have oily cheeks. My t-zone is oily, while my cheek area has a tendency of being a bit more normal, even dry at times. I can't completely say with confidence that they won't clog pores, but for the price, I do think they are worth a try!

    Fash Boulevard: Thank you so much, I'm happy you enjoy my posts =) I enjoy yours as well.

    Mimi and omgitstiffduh: Thank you =)

    Ella: They are so hard for many to find! I'm lucky enough to live relatively close to an Ulta, but they aren't in my CVS or other drugstores. The only other products I've tried from NYX are the shadows (which I do love), and also the jumbo pencils which I also like quite a bit. I think their cheek products are the stand out in the line!

  17. Natasha and Lisa: I recommend the blushes over anything else! They really are comparable to higher end brands. I hope you are able to find them at an Ulta near you.
