New Beauty Buys – NYX Blush Palette

NYX blush palette

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€.NYX blush palette colors

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?

      That’s exactly what I thought! I was afraid it might not be pigmented or long lasting but I’m pretty happy with it, and the shades are really good, thank you! xx

    I love a good bit of blush, I always use it when going for a natural makeup look. I’ve not tried any powder products from NYX so will be on the look out for something to take my eye when I’m next in Boots!

    This palette looks amazing! It’s been years since I wore blush and I usually just use bronzer. However, lately I have seen so many beautiful blushes that I really think I should try it. In my opinion a bit of blush looks so healthy😊 Will definitely keep this one in mind.

      I too usually just wear bronzer but I’ve found that blush can add a little extra to a makeup look and indeed looks really healthy xx
