Believe it or not, I didn’t ownany Nyx blushes until recently. My Ulta had the worst selectionof Nyx blushes so I would always browse but never picked up any. Then one day I was at my Ulta and they must have newly restocked their Nyx blushes because they had about 10 different shades! And they were buy one get one half off! So a cheap product already just got cheaper because it was on sale, and then there was a large selection. I picked up 2 and am pleasantly surprised.
I’ve always had my eye on terra cotta because its a shimmery nude blush and then the bourgeois pink seemed like a good staple blush since its a bright pink matte.
I really like how the Nyx blushes have that raised pyramid texture. I’m going to warn you, these swatches are god awful. I seriously had the hardest time trying to get a good picture that showed the actual color after I blended the blushes a little.
Terra Cotta. You can see the shimmers in this swatch. The blush seems to stray to the orange side, or maybe it does on my skin but its almost like a shimmer bronzer that has too much orange in it. I like it, I’ve worn it a ton since I bought it.
Bourgeois Pig. This one is much more of a traditional blush. A matte pink should be in every girls collection because its such a staple color, plus its universally flattering.
Overall, I really like these blushes especially for the money. Its hard to top some of my all time favorites but these have come pretty close. I think terra cotta is a little hard for everyone to pull off, sometime it looks a little too orange on me but bourgeois pink is the type of blush that every girl needs to have. These are ultra ultra pigmented! So use a light hand and you won’t have a problem making them look beautiful!
Grade: A- (amazing quality, extremely pigmented, sometimes because they are so pigmented they are tricky to blend)
Price: $5.99 always on sale at Ulta buy one get one half off!
