NYX Blush Stick Swatches

Amanda, a reader of mine, was very kind to e-mail today to say “hey, want some swatches of the new NYX Blush Sticks?” I haven’t indulged myself so I was ever so grateful for the swatches, thanks Amanda.

Here’s a look!

Swatched Left to Right: Orchid, Hibiscus, Pink Poppy, Tea Rose and Pink Lotus

Thanks Amanda!

Very helpful!

They look lovely, she may have convinced me I need a few.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    You’re quite welcome! I was pleasantly surprised when I bought 3 yesterday and enjoyed them enough to go buy two more today 😀 At the moment i’m at 6.5 hours of wear and it still looks as if i just applied it. Using Pink Poppy today.

      NICE wear time Amanda! I think I might pick up a few for Spring ;-D thanks again for the swatches so helpful!

      • Amanda

        Not a problem at all! The total wear time for me was 11 hours before I removed it. In hours 10 and 11 there was a little fading but not a whole lot. I’m very impressed 😀

            formula is difficult to work with but they are GORGEOUS when you get them on correctly ;D!

      whoa! They wear THIS well? Thanks for the tip – NYX for me typically is hit or miss! love their eyeshadows, their lipsticks are great color and creamy, but don’t last long on me, same for their lipglosses… dont like their pigments, don’t like their matte cream lipsticks.. 🙂 may have to try these! Any issues with breaking out?

  • Cosmetics Aficionado

    Those look gorgeous! I have a few cream blushes in pan form that I love, so I may try these too.

  • Majick

    THe colors are really great – doesn’t look like theres a bad one in the bunch. Wear time sounds FAB. Thanks Amanda!

  • Chels

    Amanda– can we use these on lips or do they have a nasty taste? Also, really great swatches.

    Muse, get Amanda to guest post more often!

    • Amanda

      I just tested this out, I didn’t notice any taste at all. They’re small enough to apply like a regular lipstick if you want, or you can use your fingers/brush. I would recommend a lip liner or balm under them however.

        thanks for the swatches, Amanda. Have you seen what Tulip looks like? I am drawn toward this one from what the package looks like, but I have not found a swatch..
