NYX Blush Mocha Review, Swatches, Photos

Hey everyone,

How important it is to wear blush? If you ask me, the importance of blush was most of the time disregarded by me, simply because I didn't understand exactly where and how to apply. But my love for blushes grew just last year when Anamika sent over a box of 8 gorgeous blushes. It gave me ample of opportunities to experiment and fall in love with this beauty product.
So once on my trip to Sephora few mont
hs, I was randomly swatching the NYX blushes and fell for this shade instantly. Yes, I didn't think twice before buying it.


But 'did the impulse buy was worth the buy'? Read on to see how it fared…


NYX says:-
Our pressed powder blush delivers sheer silky color that glides on easily blends beautifully and creates a natural glow. The formula is richly-pigmented and lasts for hours. Available in 24 radiant colors!

Packaging:-
The blush comes safely enclosed in a square shaped case with rounded corners. Lightweight and compact. The transparent lid makes it easy to detect the actual shade inside. Love the diamond pattern on the blush.


Color:-
NYX describes Mocha as Matte Mid-tone Pink and I can’t aree more. It is a great everyday wear shade and very versatile. You can either apply just a little for natural looking flushed cheeks, or you can also add a nice visible coat which would definitely rock any evening look.
But don’t you think the name is misleading? The color is nowhere close to Mocha. But it is gorgeous and I don’t complain ;)  


Texture:-
It has a soft powdery texture and applies smoothly on cheeks. It is non chalky and gives a really natural, beautiful and feminine flushed look.

Pigmentation:-
It is awesomely pigmented. But you can easily go sheer to bold. It is simple. Planning to wear it to office? Then use it with a light hand for a pretty flush of color. Planning to hit the dance floor in the evening? Then play around for a bolder look…


Staying power:-
It lasts for hours on me and I always get compliments when I wear it.

Summing up my Likes and Dislikes:-

LIKES:-
  • Beautiful shade.
  • Looks natural (if worn properly)
  • Versatile, can be used both during day and at night.
  • Matte finish.
  • Soft and smooth texture.
  • Blends well.
  • Well Pigmented.
  • Stays long.
  • Sturdy packaging.
  • Decently priced.


DISLIKES:-
  • It is very easy to go overboard with NYX blushes. So you have to be really careful about the amount you are taking on your brush.

Final Thoughts:-
A beautiful dusty pink with warm undertones, I guess it will look beautiful on almost everyone, especially on most of us Indians. Yayyy…!! It has a wonderful texture, color payoff and staying power. I would definitely recommend this blush to you all. It is totally worth every penny. It is a hit and you shouldn't miss. I am already planning to lay my hand on the other shades.
