Review: NYX Baked Blush


NYX has recently come out with quite a few new products for the spring, including these beautiful baked blushes. Baked blushes are perfect for the spring because they add just a bit of highlight to your cheeks. Not only are these bad boys delicately cute, they come in 12 different shades! I was able to pick up two blushes in Chiffon and Foreplay from my local Ulta.

NYX Baked Blush is said to be “Baked to sheer perfection, this luxurious formula is packed full of pigments to provide a natural glow and highlight to the face.”

These blushes can be used either wet or dry, but I have only tried them dry so far. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with these colors! However, they do start to fade a bit after about 6 hours, but there was still a good amount of color payoff on my cheeks towards the end of the day. When I first applied them, I noticed that I was not picking up a lot of color but then I read that you have to work your way through the tough surface before you can actually see the blushes’ true colors. Even though they do apply sheer, these baked blushes are very buildable!
