Thrifty Tuesday: NYX blushers

DSC_1700In case you have been living under a rock for the last few weeks, NYX has launched in Ireland. Let’s all just knell down and offer thanks to the makeup gods above and the people at Market Match pr, for bringing this absolutely amazing brand to our shores. You have no idea how much I absolutely love this brand. I don’t think there is a product in this brand that I don’t love, and some are well up their as holy grail products. I mean their butter glosses are probably my most used makeup product. I always stock up when I go to the States, so the fact they are now available in Ireland makes me so unbelievably happy.

NYX blushers are one of my favourite NYX products. As you can probably tell from the picture above, I have a bit of a thing for pink toned blushers. They come in 27 shades, but I am not sure if all shades are available to Ireland. These blushers are seriously pigmented. I quick swipe of your brush picks up loads of product and creates a natural sheer finish to the cheeks. The colour is build able if you want a more full on look.

Not only are these blushers really pigmented, they create a lovely natural glow.They can be a little chalky and some are a little difficult to blend, but if you apply a small amount of product and build up to your desired colour, this shouldn’t really be a problem.The key is not to go in heavy handed. They are not as finely milled as some of my more expensive blushers, but to be honest it is not something you really notices that much, especially when they cost only €6.49

DSC_1706I now have 4 colours in my collection.

Mocha: This is a highly pigmented warm coral colour.This is a very strong colour and is best applied with a light touch, for fear of looking like Bosco. When used lightly on the cheeks, it is beautiful.

Desert Rose: This is a matte vibrant pink . This is beyond pigmented, so like with Mocha, go easy when applying. It is so gorgeous on the skin and doesn’t look as scary as the swatch below suggests.

Natural: This is the latest addition to my collection. This is the traditional baby doll pink colour and is fast becoming my favourite of the collection. This gives the skin a gorgeous hint of colour and of the four colours, it is most suited to Irish skin.

Peach: This is a darker shade of baby pink than natural, but again it gives the skin a fab hint of pink. Don’t actually know why it is called peach!!!


These blushes have been raved about by so many bloggers and it is not hard to see why. For the bargain price of €6.49, they are a great addition to any makeup collection and the colour above are perfect for a summer look. Unfortunately NYX are not being stocked everywhere, so hopefully some of the stockists below are close enough for you to grab a number of these blushers.

    […] The NYX blusher are fantastic value for such a great little product. They are seriously pigmented and 1 quick swipe of your brush picks up loads of product and creates a natural sheer finish to the cheeks. However, the colour is buildable if you want a more full on look. They can be a little chalky on the chalky side, but if you apply a small amount of product and build up to your desired colour, the work out really well.The key is not to go in heavy handed. There are 27 colours in the range, but only 12 are available in Ireland. A cult favourite that I am yet to get my hands on, is Taupe. This is said to be the ultimate contouring product for fair skin. These blushers cost €7.49 and you can read a full review here. […]
