NYX Rouge Cream Blush Red Cheeks Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello everyone,
So autumn is here and if autumn comes can winter be far behind?! Absolutely not!! Winter means fuzzy socks, over-sized sweater, bold lips and cream blushes for dolly cheeks. Yes, winter is a time when you can take out your favorite cream blushes and can also experiment with colors. 
So today I am here with a review on a blush that is my winter favorite; it is NYX Cream Blush in Red Cheeks.

I have always wanted to try NYX cream blushers, because they have carved a niche of their own in the world of cream blushers. As to why I chose this shade, it is still a mystery.
So without blabbering any further, lets jump into the review…
NYX says:-
“More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting. Available in cream blush 12 shades.”

The blush comes housed in a black pot with a transparent lid. The transparent lid helps in detecting the shades from outside.

Red Cheeks looks ravishing, stunning and a very scary pinkish red on the pan; but on my cheeks this looks a very pretty dolly pink. I agree that it looks scary to be worn as a blush; but once you blend it well, it gives gorgeous flush of color to the cheeks.

It has an amazing formula. The texture is creamy, soft and blends flawlessly for a natural finish without settling on pores or lines. It gets absorbed fast and doesn’t result in greasy looking cheeks. If you have oily skin, you can always dust some powder after applying the blush.

This is the most pigmented blush I have ever come across. It is super intense and I need the smallest dot possible. Use a stippling brush for best results; but you can always use your fingers to dab and blend. Be careful with the quantity, because chance of going overboard is quite high.

Staying Power:-
Color lasts at least 8 hours on me. It'll fade just a bit, but you can still see a good bit of color.

Summing up my LIKES and DISLIKES:-

What I Like about NYX Cream rouge Blush in Red Cheeks:
  • Stunning shade that perks up my face.
  • Soft, creamy texture.
  • Light-weighed.
  • Blends seamlessly.
  • Doesn’t make cheeks look greasy.
  • Insanely pigmented.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Stays all day.
  • Doesn’t settle on pores or lines.
  • No irritations, no break outs.
  • Travel friendly packaging.

What I don’t like about NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Red Cheeks:
  • The packaging. I hate dipping my fingers in the blush.
  • It’s easy to go overboard with this shade
  • Availability in India.

Final Thoughts:-

I love this blush. It gives a dewy look, is soft textured, light weighed, pigmented and long staying. I love cream blushes that are easy to use and looks beautiful, and this is undoubtedly one of such blushes. You just have to keep in mind the amount you are using.
