NYX Cream Blush Swatch and Review

I purchased these NYX Cream Blushes during Cherry Culture 40% off sales. The regular price is $6.50 and I paid $3.90 each. I've never really been fond of cream blushes but wanted to give them another try. Perhaps I'll find one I love.

  • The packaging looks very similar to MAC but certainly has less weight to it. These blushes weigh .12 oz each and a MAC cream blush weighs .21 oz, which is almost double.

  • They have 13 different shades to choose from but I picked 3.

  • Tickled looks like a cream blush version of NARS Orgasm. It's a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmers.

  • Natural is a creamy nude pink

  • Boho Chic is a light pale pink. Looking from the pan, Boho Chic and Natural looked almost identical but they are different when swatched
Swatches from left to right is Tickled, Natural, and Boho Chic.

These are how they look when blended

  • These blushes are very creamy and the pigmentation is pretty decent. I see these colors would work best on fair to medium skintone.
  • I personally feel that they are best applied with a brush but you can still work it with your fingers if you don't have a brush.
  • I like the fact that they don't feel tacky afterward, which is one thing that really annoys me in cream blushes.
  • They do leave a glossy but natural flush on your face. If you don't like shimmery or glossy finish in a blush, then you are not going to like these. I do not recommend these if you have oily skin. You are going to look extremely shiny.
  • They don't last very long. After 3 hours, I notice a significant fading. So you will need to reapply.
  • They work very nicely as a gloss! Tickled looked the best on the lips. Natural and Boho chic may be a bit too light for some skintone.
I like these but I don't love them. They are nice and blend easily. I wish they were less glossy looking and that the staying power was better though. I rarely reapply makeup throughout the day. Heck, I barely have time to check out my face throughout the day so I need long-wear makeup. If you are on a budget and don't mind the listed flaws in these blushes then you might enjoy these. My rating 7.5/10.


  1. Tickled and Natural suits your skintone the best!

  2. I've been wanting these for awhile! I've never used a cream blush but I have a bunch on my "to buy" list haha. How do you apply your cream blushes? I have oily skin but I don't really mind the dewy look so these will be staying on my wishlist~ The colors you got are gorgeous!

  3. Thanks Lucy, I think you're right. Boho Chic is kinda light. It still shows but looks very subtle on me.

    AngelicBetrayal, I prefer to use my coastal scent tappered duo fiber brush for these.
