NYX Boho Chic

As I said a while back, I’ve never really used cream based blushers. I don’t know why…. They just never seemed to grab my attention. Over the summer months I really enjoyed using the Collection Speedy Blush stick, and found it made applying the product super easy whilst also leaving a really natural and dewy look on the skin. Now, since the colder months are drawing in, I thought I’d swiftly want to move back to my powder products…. However then I started thinking why? My skin starts to get rather dry during the colder months, so why would I want to use a product that will only emphasise this issue? It just made no sense to me and I thought that surely a creamier product formula was look far more natural on the skin, giving a more flawless finish as opposed to clinging to all the dry areas you’d rather not highlight.

On my girly day out with Levinia last weekend we hit up Boots (of course) and headed straight to their large NYX stand for a browse. I spotted this cream blush in Boho Chic and gave it a swatch and loved the natural rosy colour it gave off. So of course, it came home with me.

As it isn’t in a stick formula like the Collection one I own, I wasn’t sure how to apply the product best onto my skin. After a bit of playing around I found that using my middle and index fingers to initially apply the products onto the cheeks, followed by the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to blend it out gave a flawless finish, leaving my cheeks with a natural rosy glow.

What I really like about this product is that it’s pretty damn hard to overdo. No one likes to have that clown look going on, and I often find that with powder blushes the colour can so easily go from nothing to ridiculously strong pigmentation. Since this NYX blush is cream based it gives off a subtle pinky colour which can easily be built up as desired. Also, due to the finish, it means you can just use a sponge to bop the product into the skin as much or as little as you want, meaning that even if you add a tad too much colour, it’s super easy to rectify the issue, blending it into the skin as if nothing ever went wrong (hallelujah).

I’m definitely going to have a look at what other colours NYX have in this blush formula the next time I’m browsing one of their stands!
