Product Review; "NYX Powder Blush"

Choosing lipstick colors at my local beauty supply store was the main point of my shopping trip late last week, but obviously I couldn't stop there. Alongside the multiple lip shades was a new schematic of products from the makeup firm NYX Cosmetics that boasted a huge array of colors at very agreeable price points.

I decided to play a little with the few testers available and found a product that was sheer in texture, lightweight and pretty densely pigmented. NYX Powder Blush is a formula that, although rich in color, read as looking more like a highlighter on skin. All the tones, depending on your interpretation, are either shimmery or pearlized but offer a good amount of, yet refined, "glow" to the skin. Ideal if you want your skin to look bright without chunks of glitter drawing too much attention.

I liked the array of color choices because it seemed as though each one had multiple shades blended together to create a kind of dimensional effect. I found that most of the gold tones serve well on deeper skin tones without looking "ashy" and seemlessly blend with other powder products like foundation or other blushes. Some colors I thought were a bit too bright, but I got a little excited to play with them and opted to buy them anyway. But, no remorse here, you can't really go wrong with $6 a piece.

Hey Meanwhile,

You can buy NYX products at pretty much any beauty supply store around the city.
Usually locations that carry misc. beauty essentials and supplies like wig-caps and professional hair color.
