NYX Cream Blush Glow review & swatches

I love cream blushes as they provide a gorgeous dewy glow and have great array of yummy shades but at the same time I find them hard to apply and blend as they take time.However,these NYX cream blushes are hard to resist and this particular shade is most raved one!!!

???????????????????????????????

ABOUT: More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry and long-lasting.

???????????????????????????????

PRICE: 6$ OR around rs.650 in India.

PACKAGING: The packaging is simple and sturdy with a black round pan packaging having a transparent lid .The shade name is provided at the back.

???????????????????????????????

THE SHADE: Glow is a gorgeous bright pink shade.It has warmer tones which makes it suitable for Indian skin tones.It looks very bright in the pan and on swatching but once blended out,it looks very subtle and gives a healthy glow to face!!

MY VIEWS: The texture is very creamy and the blush is highly pigmented.I just put 3 dots below the cheekbone and then blend.It blends easily without leaving any patches or streaks.The finish is dewy and it staying for about 7-8 hours on me.However,after a few hours I feel some oiliness and need a dust of compact to freshen up the look.

MAUVE PINK (RES05): Pink with gold and silver glitter.I totally agree with this description but i find silver shimmer to be more prominent than gold!!

???????????????????????????????

HOW TO USE: I use this shimmer roll on directly on to  the eye lids over a cream base shadow as it has a lot of fallout without  a proper base.

???????????????????????????????

PACKAGING: As per the name,the eye shadows come in a transparent body which shows the shade of the shadow and a roller ball tip which helps in applying the eye shadow directly on the eyes preventing loose pigments creating too much mess although with this also,i have a bit of fallout!! The name of the eye shadow is provided at the bottom of the tube.

PERFORMANCE: I loved the shade as it is a mauve pink actually but i knew i wont be able to use it much as it is way too glittery for everyday use.

???????????????????????????????

The product comes out smoothly on eyes when the roll ball rotates.It is not at all chunky or gritty. I fel like i ma applying some wet pigment on eyes when i use this although they are completely dry and in powder form. You have be be very careful whilel applying this as it can easily be overdone.

???????????????????????????????

I try to settle the shadow with a flat eye shadow brush after using the roller pen as this has the tendency to fly and can ruin the entire look.

???????????????????????????????

The shade is decently pigmented and comes out beautifully when used over a darker base.

Staying power is around 7-8 hours after which i could see minor fading.
