I love how creative one can get with makeup. I find it so much fun to play with formulas, textures, colors, different looks and matching my makeup look with how I feel like looking that day.
I have to say, so far NYX has never disappointed me (read my NYX soft matte lip creams review here) with their products so when I saw that my local NYX cosmetics store was doing a discount, I pretty much rushed there.
This Sweet Cheeks blush palette caught my eye immediately. All of these different blush shades and – the fact that it was 50% off – contributed to the fact that it took a whole 10 seconds for me to put it in my basket. It retailed for 17,90€ and I paid 8,95€.
I think NYX nailed it with the color selection. I feel like these shades could suit so many skin tones and create very different makeup looks from natural, to romantic, edgier, summery, wintery, etc…
The formula is really good, it’s not powdery, it’s easy to blend, pigmented enough so that one doesn’t have to dip the brush in too many times but not too pigmented that you have to be very careful with it either. It lasts for a good amount of time and never looks cake-y. The three shades at the top are shimmery with the third one being more subtle and the rest are all mattes.
I’ve been wearing them everyday for the past 10 days and absolutely love how they make my makeup come together. This palette is very travel-friendly and though it lacks a mirror – but for the price, I’m totally okay with that – it’s very handy. The pans are the right size for the brush (I use the real techniques blush brush) and there are no fallouts so the colors don’t mix.
Have you tried this palette? Which product from NYX is your favorite?
