NYX Cosmetics Cream Rouge and Powder Blush

nyxrougecreamI received both NYX Cosmetic’s Cream Rouge and Powder Blush recently. The Cream Rouge came in that bright pink color shone here. I was a little nervous about using a color that looked like hot pink. However, I found that as I worked the color in and blended it with my other makeup, it seemed to appear more of a “rosy glow” type color than “I am stuck in the 80′s” type color. I didn’t really need much product at all to highlight the apples of my cheeks. I applied it using a wedge sponge because I really didn’t want bright pink fingertips.

The Powder Blush came stating that the color was “Cinnamon.” However, on the NYX website it shows Cinnamon to be a pink color, which this was not. It was orange in color just as the blush here appears in the picture. Again, I was skeptical about using orange blush, but it really didn’t look that bad. I think it would actually look really good in the summer when I have a nice tan. The orange tint to the powder would give it more of a bronze look. If you happen to have a blue-ish tint to your skin, orange is actually really good at minimizing blue (just as green and yellow minimize red).

Have you tried either of these blushes? What did you think?

      I haven’t tried the NYX blushes, but I’m willing to give them a try. I’ve tried the loose powder shadows and really like them.

      i used to be turned off of nyx because it wasn’t a really well known brand, but blogs like yours and nessasarymakeup.blogspot.com show me that there are a lot of great brands! nyx also has tons of colors, which is awesome for trying new looks

      I agree with yoyosushi, Makeup Minute and Nessasary Makeup have really proven the ability of nyx to compete with MAC~ if only I could get my mitts on some here in Denver!

      I haven’t tried NYX’s blush, but I do love cream blushes. Those colors look a little crazy though, I’m sure you need to have an extremely light hand.

      Never tried any of these products, but I think the cream rouge would go really well with my complexion.

      I think I have tried NYX Blushes before but not on myself. I think that’s what I used once when I was doing makeup for a college fashion show once, but I wasn’t using any of my makeup kits. The packaging struck a cord when I just saw it now though. The color deposit is great, but you need a good control of the brush you’re using because it’s easy to go overboard.
