NYX Beach Babe HD Blush
NYX Beach Babe HD Blush

NYX Beach Babe HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a brightened, gold-shimmered brown with warm, reddish-yellow undertones and a frosted finish. Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $45.00) is less red. Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (P) is slightly darker. Too Faced Sun Bunny #2 (P) is lighter. Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is darker. Disney by Sephora Golden Sands (LE, $55.00) is darker. MAC Global Glow (P, $30.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It was nicely pigmented with color that could be applied at true-to-pan intensity. The texture was soft with a fairly silky feel that didn’t get too powdery–the least powdery shade I’ve tested so far from the new HD range–that blended easily on the skin. I also found that despite seeming rather shimmery when swatched, the finish is softer and more luminous than a true frost on the skin. It seemed to buff and diffuse especially well in practice. When I wore this blush (or bronzer), it stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I really like this one. I wish Ulta had free shipping because I have a feeling these are going to sell out and we are snowed in again,UGH! So, awesome to see quality in affordable products. I also appreciate your idea to use these more sparkly bronzers as blush. I have so many that come in kits or whatever and overly sparkly bronzers aren’t my thing generally. But as a blush! Eureka! Thanks for the Idea! You look so cute with this look too..very festive ! Not something I could pull off for sure.

Wow – that looks stunning on you Christine – and your eye look is gorgeous. What a great colour for you. I think it might be a little too dark for me, but it is a fabulous product.

One of my favorite parts about your face test pics is seeing what other products may be making their way to the blog in the future days. Your eye look is stunning! 🙂

The blush is such a lovely summer shade.
I’m so drawn to ur lip color too. Hope to see your reviews on NYX’s new Intense Butter Glosses. ^^

At the price tag formula looks really good.. though I am not into bronzers but would love to give this a try!! 🙂

The blush looks lovely on you
