My Go To Cheek Color For The Summer!

All through out the summer I found myself reaching for this NYX Cream Blush in Glow as my go to cheek color! Its super creamy, easy to blend and nicely pigmented! I think it would look really great on fair to tan skin tones to give you a really fresh, slightly pinky, well..."glow".

Amazing Cream Blushes!

I stumbled upon these blushes at the end of last year while watching Youtube. I am so glad I did! They are so creamy and pigmented. I have 4 in total. They range from Tea Rose to my favorite which is Golden because you can use it all year round. The packaging is okay not anything special. The 5 star rating is just for the product!=D When I first started using these last year I applied them with a stippling brush. My favorite way now is using a foundation brush it is better for placement and blending. I love the color selection that NYX carries. They have colors for every skin tone & the price is unbeatable!

Great Product!

This was my first ever cream blush and I have to say that I am very pleased with it! I love the color it gives on my cheeks. I use my ELF stippling brush to apply this. Gives such a nice color and glow on the cheeks! I love that this product is versatile as well! You can use it on your lips or even on your lids as a base! Works great! The color is pigmented and very buildable. Long lasting! LOVE it! I love that NYX has so many colors to chose from and super affordable!


I love these cream blushes these also have been added to my staple products. My absolute favorite is the orange shade it give my cheeks such a soft pretty glow.

Great color for deeper skin tones

I absolutely loved this shade. A lot goes a long way, so last a good while. It blends smoothly, and it's lasting power is decent. I have oily skin, so that's saying something, believe me.

So pink, and yet so natural

This blush is in my top two. I have dry to normal skin and this blush looks so natural it's just unbelievable...
It's cheap, got a fair amount of product and it's so easy to apply.. One important thing you must remeber is that you should only use a tiny amount of color and build it if you want it to, otherwise you'll end up looking like a porcelain doll :-)
In terms of texture on the cheecks, it has this ''part of your skin'' look to it. Will definitely repurchase.

Friggin' amazing

This was the first cream blush I've used, and I'm a little disappointed. It looks really good when you first put it on, but it doesn't stay on long at all. And I'm not the type to layer it with another blush. I think that defeats the purpose of using a cream instead of a powder. I have normal/dry skin.

So pretty

This is my first cream blush and it really had me wondering... why did I ever use powder blush? This goes on smoothly, stays on throughout the day, and looks so natural when blended out underneath foundation. I really can't speak highly enough about this product. I'm going to buy one of the brown shades soon to use for contouring.

Sticky Formula, Color Misrepresentation on NYX's Part

I adore NYX's Powder Blushes and Mosaic Blushes, and thought I'd give their Rouge Cream Blushes a whirl. I swapped for one in Boho Chic, which I had hoped was a dusty rose shade as represented in swatches on the NYX web site, but it was in fact a soft, rosey pink shade instead. NYX is terrible at properly representing accurate color swatches for their products!

Color mispresentation aside, the formula and pigmentation was a bit disappointing. I was comparing this to Topshop's Blush at the same time. The Topshop blush is a cream-to-powder formula, which I enjoyed because of my combo-oily skin; the cream-to-powder formula felt clean and weightless once set.

NYX's Rouge Cream Blush, on the other hand was a cream blush that stayed creamy. It melted in the pan if stored in even slightly hotter than room temperature, and was a sticky mess both in the compact and once applied on the face. I always had to set this blush with powder after applying, because it stayed tacky for a while. The pigmentation was also lacking, and was difficult to build up the intensity of it since it seemed to stay a little wet after applying.

If you do feel compelled to try this blush out, there is one thing I could recommend it for and that is as a base for powder blushes. Because it's so tacky, I have used this cream blush as a base underneath Maybelline's Mineral Power Powder Blush. It helps set the cream blush, giving the stickiness of the cream blush something to hold onto, while intensifying the pigmentation and staying power of the powder blush.
