NYX blush in Espresso is a nice neutral color that really blends into my skin. On my skin complexion I do not get a really bold color pay off unless I build the color up so if I do not build the color up I will get more shimmer than color which is ok with me since I do not care for really bold blush anyway. This blush has a really soft smooth texture to it but not so soft to the point it breaks and crumbles up. So far I only have two of the NYX blushes but I will for sure be purchasing more of these blushes. NYX is a great alternative for a diva on a budget.
