NYX Mauve Blush

NYX Mauve Powder Blush ($5.99 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “matte light mauve.” It’s a medium, rosy pink with subtle warm undertones and a matte finish. NARS Anguilla (P, $39.00) is warmer. Hourglass Radiant Magenta (P, $35.00) is warmer. Burberry Misty (P, $42.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Naked Rose (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Overexposed (LE) is similar. MAC Formal (LE, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture was soft, fairly silky, and very blendable on the skin, so it was easy to use and difficult to overdo, as it could be sheered out for a softer color if you felt like you over-applied. It had good color payoff that went on with true-to-pan color. I could see this shade working well as an everyday blush for someone with a fair to medium skin tone. If some of the cooler-toned, rosy pinks haven’t worked out for you, this one might with its warmer undertone, which is what made it more unique within my stash. Applied, the color wore well for almost seven hours before starting to fade.

This is just a general question about NYX’s blushes. I’ve never tried any of their blushes, but based on the one’s you’ve purchased and tested. Overall would you suggest buying any? I like their lip products, but I’ve never jumped on wanting to try any of their blushes.

They’re some of the better budget-friendly blushes I’ve tried, though they’re not the absolute, very best blushes of all time – does that make sense? If you’re on a tight budget, they’re worth a look, but if you’re just looking for the best products, maybe not these.
