Review: NYX Powder Blush in Taupe

Hello possums :)

Absolutely ages ago when I made my first Cherry Culture order, I bought this powder blush purely on the basis of Leanne's recommendation. She said it was a great contour shade as it was matte and wasn't too dark. So, it kind of ended up in my basket, and voila, here it is!


NYX say: Powder blush comes in a silky-textured, quilted compact powder with rich pigmentation that provides long-lasting wear. All shades deliver a healthy, natural looking glow.

I say: I really love the feel of the powder, as it does feel soft and silky. Taupe is a lovely shade and perfect for contouring as it's not too dark and is a buildable, blendable shade that lasts all day.


*Heavily swatched*

NYX say: Made with the same silky texture and rich pigmented formula of our eye shadows, the powder blush gives cheeks a healthy looking tone with quick ease.

I say: Totally agree. Taupe feels the same as the NYX eye shadows and is just as pigmented. Really pleased with this, so thumbs up to Leanne for the recommendation!

Price: RRP $6.00 (£3.84), current price $5.00 (£3.20) on Cherry Culture. Compared to an RRP of £7.95 in the UK?! Bit of a no brainer no?
