I did a little too much damage during the 50% off site wide sale at NYX during Thanksgiving weekend. Ouch! But who resist at these prices?
I was excited to haul some of the mega palettes they had and I gotta tell you, so far, I’m not disappointed!
Even if you missed the sale, NYX still calls to the beauty budget souls among us. Check out their blush if you’re seeking pigmented yet wallet friendly.
I tried the shade Desert Rose and loved it!
Powder blush at a budget price!
Variety is the spice of life and variety you get with NYX which includes a range of more than 24 shades of blush at a $6 price tag. I only picked up one blush for some silly reason but I sure wish I got more.
The shade I indulged in was Desert Rose which is a deep, rich dusty rose. It comes across very warm and almost peach-like on my cheeks and leaves behind a nice burst of glowing color with plenty of pigmentation and a formula blends easily and wears long. I was deeply impressed with the color pay off which honestly can compete with higher end blushes such as MAC or even NARS.
Packaging is very industry black standard which isn’t cute but hey MAC fans could pretty much relate and get used to it. It doesn’t come with a brush but that’s perfectly fine as well with me.
- Anyone that loves pigmented blushes.
- Anyone wanting high quality blush at a low cost.
- Anyone wanting a budget blush that can compete with the likes or NARS or MAC.
- Anyone who desires cute or elegant packaging (this is pretty much to the point sans frills).
NYX is popping up in CVS lately! Which is great as hopefully we’ll see an entire range of it available soon at our local drugstore. It’s probably one of the best budget brands out there with plenty of pigment and quality to back it up. The blush was amazingly good and I was more than happy with my purchase, particularly because I paid merely $3 during the sale! Such a deal! Desert Rose will look fabulous on most skin types but darker ones will absolutely love how pigmented and warm this comes across.
Loves it! Total Muse Approved for purchase!
