NYX Cinnamon Blush Review & Swatch

This is the first NYX blush I have tried, and I was very excited about it because of the color. The blush is in the shade Cinnamon and it is a very bright orange color. I haven't seen a blush exactly this shade of orange before, so I thought it would be a great addition to my makeup collection. 




Here is a swatch on my skin. It is a little heavy, but I apply it in lighter amounts when I wear it on my face.


I am going to try to keep this review short, so here are the pros and cons of this blush:

Pros:
-nice color payoff
-not chalky
-adds a nice amount of warmth to my skin tone
-blends very easily and it's very easy to work with
-great price and nice amount of product ($5-$6 USD)

Cons:
-This only lasts about 4-5 hours on my skin before I need to reapply.

Overall, this is a nice blush. The color is nice and unique, and it isn't expensive. My only issue is the lasting power. This may be because I have oily skin, but I own blushes that last a lot longer than this one. Other than that I really like this, and I want to try more NYX blushes in the future.

Have you tried any NYX blushes before? If so, what is your favorite shade?

  1. so fun! 4-5 hours is generally a good amount of time for a blush. Usually they only stay on my skin for a couple hours :P

    1. Yeah I think 4-5 hours is pretty good, I was just comparing it to other blushes I one that last me way longer. I really enjoy this blush though!
