The next blush is Mocha and it is a shade that appears much more pinky on my darker skin. In the pan it looks like a terracotta/pink. I think Mocha is one of those blushes that suits most skin tones because the pink looks different on each person. For more lighter skin tones, it will look like a brighter pink.
The final blush is Pinched, which a lot of people say is a dupe for NARS Orgasm (separate post will be done). Pinched is a shimmery, peachy pink with gold shimmer. I have found that it's quite sheer, and does need to be built up. This is a shade that will suit all skin tones.
The next 2 blushes that i am going to talk about is the cream blushes. I do like wearing cream blushes, especially in the summer because i like layering my cream and powder products together to give some longevity to the cheek colours. I find the cream blushes very buttery and easy to blend. They don't leave a greasy or tacky feeling to the skin. I would suggest applying this with a stippling brush because it would be easier to blend. It gives the skin, the most beautiful dewy appearance.
Red Cheeks blush is a bright red, however when applied with a light hand and blended, it gives the skin a gorgeous pinky bluish flush to the skin. This maybe a colour that is a tad difficult to wear, however on fair skin, it will look absolutely stunning.
The final blush is Orange, and it looks like a bright tangerine orange in the pan but when applied to the skin, it is a more peachier orange. This is a shade that can be worn on all skin tones, but will enhance more tanned, dark complexions.

I am very impressed with NYX blushes, not only are they super affordable, but they are extremely pigmented. I can not fault them at all, however i do wish they were in stores here in the UK, as it is very difficult to get an idea of the shades online and how they will look on my skin. Will i be purchasing more??! Errrr yes!!
NYX blushes start from £5.50 and can be purchased online HERE.
Have you tried any NYX blushes? Recommendations?
