NYX blushers: Spice and Mocha

I'm so glad I finally had the chance to check out NYX's products at Shop at Sarah's a few weeks ago! Been dying to try out their blushers! I actually wanna try their Rouge Cream blush but the shop doesn't carry those so I picked up two of their powder blushers instead.

I got them for B$15.90 each which is a bit much I think but I got them anyway. It's not too bad considering you don't have to wait for shipping time and you also get to swatch the products in the store.

Spice is a rose colored blush with a slight silver shimmer. Nothing crazy though, you can't even really see the silver shimmer on your face unless you're standing an inch away from the mirror lol Also, this blush is ridiculously pigmented!! I'm so used to using Springsheen from MAC which is a sheertone blush that I always use by really dipping my blush brush into the blush before applying them on my cheeks. So when I do that with NYX's Spice, I literally look like I have clown cheeks. 
All I need is a gentle tap of my blush brush on Spice and then blending them onto my cheeks and I'm done! No kidding... this blush will last me a while! A little goes a long way with Spice.

I don't know why they call this blush Mocha? It's definitely less of a mocha and more of a peach! haha Anyways, Mocha is a very pretty peachy colored matte blush. This is less pigmented than Spice (thank goodness) but still quite pigmented nonetheless. I'm not sure of the other blushers by NYX but these two that I currently own aren't that powdery at all and they are so easy to work with and to blend. Totally worth the money I paid for. It makes me wanna go back to the store and buy all the other shades!

Check out the NYX stand the next time you're at Shop at Sarah's. I really do think that these blushers might actually be of better quality than the blushers of some of the other brands offered here locally. :)

  1. oo loved the color, I used to preorder from a facebook online shop, but then, everytime allowance is already out, the preorder would usually close, so last resorts would have to go there and try their products :D
