Review & Swatches: NYX Cream Blush in Natural

NYX Cream Blush in Natural

A few days ago, I raved about the benefits of switching to cream blush for the summer in a review of Revlon's PhotoReady Cream Blush in Coral Reef. Given how popular cream blushes are throughout the season, I'm back with another affordable option for those that are still going strong with their summer makeup routine!

NYX's Cream Blush in Natural is a soft dusty rose that appears to have more brown undertones when in the pan, but leans more pink when applied. While it might fall flat on deep skin tones, I think it could flatter a wide range of light to medium shades with both warm, neutral and cool undertones. It's very smooth and creamy, but seemed stickier than I might like at first. Swatched heavily, it maintains a thicker, tackier consistency. But once blended, it doesn't take long for it to dry down to something of a powder finish – perfect for a long-lasting cream blush. And this blush is long-lasting! Considering how affordable is at $, I expected it to be relatively short-lived. Not so! I found it wore evenly throughout the day and even when it started fading around the 9 hour mark, it did so evenly. The blush is buildable, but there's obviously a point where it will reach max capacity and regain the same sticky texture that comes with a heavy swatch. Still, I I'm not sure how practical that kind of pigmentation is for anyone.

Bravo, NYX! This is a superb and affordable product that should be on any cream blush-lover's to-buy list.
