Swatched: NYX Powder Blush in Pinched

Friday, 10 August 2012


This NYX blush was one of the items that I requested in my recent US Drugstore Swap.  With such a great shade range to pick from, I had trouble deciding which one I'd like to try, so I let Betzy do all of the choosing and she sent me Pinched.


Pinched is beautiful peachy-pink which has a hint of gold shimmer.  In the swatch below, the gold shimmer looks more prominent than it actually does when it's properly blended on the cheeks.  It might look a bit NARS Orgasm-esque, but Pinched is much more pink and a lot less shimmery.  NYX powder blushers are famed for their great pigmentation and I was not disappointed!  The powder is silky soft and blends so easily.  On my oily/combination skin I found this blush to last on me all day without a primer, amazing quality for a budget brand!     


Have you tried NYX powder blushers?  Which ones are your favourite shades?

  1. I really want the Taupe shade! Just wish NYX was a bit more readily available in the UK. I've got their lipstick in Snow White which is great, really creamy! xx
