NYX Rose Gold HD Blush
NYX Rose Gold HD Blush

NYX Rose Gold HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a brightened, medium orange-coral with warm, reddish undertones and a strong, golden frost. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to mostly true-to-pan color. The texture was silky to the touch, which made it easy to blend and work into the skin, and the fineness of the powder helped it adhere smoothly. The only downside is that it is a little powdery and kicks up excess in the pan, but luckily, that powderiness doesn’t translate on the skin. This shade wore for seven and a half hours on me. Makeup Geek Romance (DC, $9.99) is cooler (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Trippin (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar).

NYX Intuition HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, rosy plum with warm undertones and a frosted finish. This blush has an incredibly soft, finely-milled consistency… that gets everywhere, because it is so powdery that is easy to get far more product than you need on the brush and onto your face (it also wastes some!). You need a really, really light touch and just lightly pat the surface of the blush with your brush to minimize the mess. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a more heavily frosted finish, though it didn’t emphasize pores once it is blended out. I noticed fading with this one after seven hours. Stellar Beauty Flare (P, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Geller Fruit Punch (P, $28.00) is cooler (95% similar). Becca Rose Spritz (DC, $34.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

Laura Mercier Peach (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Peachy Keen (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Pearlescent Pink (P, $2.99) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). YSL Passionnee (6) (P, $47.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Sweet Vision (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). theBalm Hot Mama (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Star Wonder (LE, $34.00) is darker (90% similar).

FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a glow, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours.

Intuition is sooo pretty! I have to get to ULTA this week for something else, so hopefully there will be a decent selection of these blushes in stock, as I don’t want to order online, LOL! They’re fragile enough as it is…

That was one of the first dupes I thought of, too! Maybe you could try it next to Orgasm in the swatch gallery since that’s a dupe for Luminoso.

I’m really loving the look of Rose Gold…I wonder how that would look on deeper skin….Hmmm I might be brave and just buy it…Great review…

These are SO pretty! You are positively glowing, like you spent a week at a spa, or maybe you did? I love glowy blushes, and NYX delivers at a crazy cheap price. I only have 1 NYX Blush so far (Amber- love!), but will definitely be grabbing some more shades at the next sale. Will you be doing a round-up of these?

Both really pretty dupes for the Oragasm type look. Christine, did the Colourpop fall collection sell out in a day or something? Or has it not launched yet?

Ahh, I already have Peachy Keen so I guess I’ll pass, though I’m obsessed with orange blushes! It looks great, especially for the price. Love nyx, thanks for the review!

Both these blushes look lovely – very subtle colours that glow. They look gorgeous on you Christine and suit your complexion well. For the rating and the price they are a bargain.

Pretty nice blushes, especially Rose-Gold! Only thing that worries me is that seeing how these tend to be fragile, and that most of Nyx new blush shades are not yet offered by Ulta, I’m not so sure how confident I could be having them shipped. But I really love Rose-Gold!

When I had them shipped from NYX, I think they arrived fine (I think it was just the Prismatic eyeshadows that still had one arrive broken, but I could be misremembering!), but when they shipped from ULTA, several were broken.

Thanks, that’s definitely good to know! I have heard that Ulta is the worst when it comes to packing items carefully (thoughtfully?), so I’ll get it through Nyx instead!

I used to work for Ulta. You should have seen the boxes that store shipment came in. Fragile product just tossed into a box, no padding at all. It scared the bajeezus out of me, as shipment manager.

Both of these blushes look absolutely stunning on you. Rose Gold gives you such an awesome glow! Can’t wait to try these out!

NYX might be disappointed their Rose Gold didn’t get Nars Orgasm as a dupe listed in your review! But Rose Gold looks smoother than Nars Orgasm in my opinion….. or maybe I’m mixing it up with Super Orgasm, one of the two was chunky glittery for me
