NEW NYX Cosmetics Baked Blushes
As I've mentioned in prior posts, NYX Cosmetics is one of my all time favorite makeup brand, they offer "high end" beauty products at drugustore prices! As soon as I saw that they came out with brand new products I knew I had to purchase a few, well today I am here to briefly talk about their NEW Baked Blushes. They come in 12 different colors, each with .23 fl oz of product, and they retail for $7.00. I have the color BBL12 SUGAR MAMA which is a beautiful peach colored blush.
Here's what NYX Cosmetics had to say about their new Baked Blushes: "Baked to sheer perfection, this luxurious formula is packed full of pigments to provide a natural glow and highlight to the face. Uniquely designed to be used wet or dry, depending upon the makeup statement you want to make. When used dry with a brush, the look is light and fresh. Want more color? No Problem! Apply wet with a makeup sponge for more intensity. Baked blush tends to be hard on the surface, but once you get through the top layer, you get true, intense color payoff!" I completely agree with NYX this product does act like a blush yet also like a highlighter as well; the blush is not matte at all but does have tiny bit of gold shimmer specks similar to a highlighter, so it looks very natural and provides a bit of color and bit of highlight to the skin as well.
What I also love about this blush is that it feels amazing on the skin, when you touch it the blush feels very soft, almost like velvet, and it applies amazingly on the skin, without any effort at all. The blush also blends in so perfectly and a little bit of product is all you need because this blush is very pigmented yet does look very natural on the skin. It is not powdery at all, and it doesn't feel like any other baked blush I've tried before. Also, this blush is very long lasting, I've had it on for an entire work day (over 9 hours) and the blush still looked amazing as it did when I first applied it.
I decided to go with a peach color because I have so many other pink blushes, however seeing how amazing these are I plan on purchasing a few other colors including some of the deep and light pinks. They do have a wide variety of different shade variations which is great because anyone of any color can find a blush that looks great on their skin -- the range goes from peach, orange, bright pink, light pink, deep rose, tan pink and many more. Please be sure to visit the NYX Cosmetics site for additional color and product information.
Also, can we talk about how cute the packaging is? Each blush comes in a very sturdy high quality plastic see-through box, with a cute bow as the opening. This is also why NYX is one of my favorite all time brands because they truly do put so much time, effort, and thought into their packaging and of course into the quality of their products. I also wanted to mention that I've only tried this blush dry and not wet just because I feel like it's already so pigmented. In addition, depending on your skin color all of these blushes can somehow become a blush, highlighter or even a bronzer which is pretty amazing! Have you purchased any of the new NYX Baked Blushes? Which color are you planning to pick up?
