NYX Rouge Cream Blush Review and Swatch



Another product review to color up this blog. I know this blog lacks of color so let's get more colored products to face summer and have fun together wooohooo!

And what's better than go with the famous NYX Rouge Cream Blush? I've been wanting to get these babies! Especially because NYX is famous for their cheap but pigmented products! And my new sponsor, Rie Butik, is really generous to send me half of the available colors for a review purpose

You sure don't want to miss this one out :D













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. Available in cream blush 12 shades.



Packaging :

NYX Rouge Cream Blush comes in an usual black plastic jar NYX packaging. It prefer this packaging compared to my own Canmake Cream Blush because this one looks more professional and sleek. The front packaging is also made transparent so we can know the color of the blush itself without have to open the cap. Moreover, they also print the number and the name of the blush, yet put information the ingredients there

.





Application :

You can apply this by using your fingers, or with a stippling brush. If you use fingers, Take an appropriate amount and make a dot on the apples of your cheek, like 3-4 dots, then blend it! Also you can use duo fibre/stippling brush for more natural result, just dip the brush on the product, pat it on the back of your hand, and gently pat it on your cheeks

For more long lasting finish, you can set it with powder blush on top! Also, this cream blush is buildable, so you can always put more layer to achieve bolder color


Colors :


NYX Rouge Cream Blush comes in 12 different shades and I must say that it's quite a wide color selection to choose from. I dont know why but they don't carry number 4, so the numbers are up to 13, but no 4 is skipped :0

I'm lucky enough to be able to get half of them, so here are some of the colors that catch my attention :

CB01 Rose Petal




A neutral nude pink, with a hint of coral. I'd say that this is the safest and the most natural color among my collection, it gives a rosy healthy cheek

.

CB05 Glow



A neutral warm medium pink. This shade is really popular and many has reviewed it before. It's slightly darker than CB01, and compliments medium skin tone color nicely.

.

CB07 Red Cheeks



This bright red blush is really red! If you're a make up junkie and would love the blush to be the attention, go for this one. Especially for those with fair skin tone who wants to enhance the cheek, be a snow white with this! Super difficult and rare to find this kind of color for cream blush

.

CB08 Hot Pink



A cool tone hot pink color, reminding me of barbie look! This hot pink color is super fun to use. The color is bold like CB07, so be careful

.

CB09 Orange




I don't know why but I am interested with tangerine-orange color lately, and this orange blush is just so cute! Not so many stores sell this color, and it's really bright and fun! Perfect for summer!

.

CB13 Tickled



A peachy pink color with a hint of gold shimmer. It is the sheerest one compared to the others, and I think that this one a good dupe for NARS Orgasm

.

Texture :

I really praise the texture, it's amazingly really really creamy and smooth! Also it's really pigmented, the colors show up really nice, so I don't have to use a lot or put pressures when blending them. It blends beautifully on my cheek, gives it dewy radiant finish. Also, they last for a really long time! So much love :heart:

.

Swatch :

As you guys can see that the colors are really pigmented, blended easily, and so vivid! I can't believe to get this kind of result from cheap products! :-o After trying this, I am not sure whether I will buy Canmake Cream Blush any longer because this is far better in my opinion!

.

.



Where I Got This and Price :

NYX is very accessible because it has a lot of stores worldwide, but the price on the counter in Indonesia is quite expensive. That's why there are a lot of online shops sell it. Be careful, avoid fake and untrusted sellers dear :)

As for me, I got mine from Rie Butik, a trusted online shop based in Indonesia. Price for each cream blush is only Rp 78.000, and I think that it's pretty affordable! The retail price on the US is USD 6.75 so I think the price is super fair already

If you're interested you can buy from them through pre order HERE, and mention Code STL6RIE to get 6% discount for min purchase Rp 100.000

Final Opinion :


Pros :

  • Affordable

  • Creamy texture

  • Blends easily, and glides really smooth

  • Very pigmented

  • Comes in 12 colors to choose from

  • Long lasting

  • Accessible for everyone

  • Can be used for cheek and lips

Cons :

  • N/A

I can't find what's wrong with this product, honestly . . .

Some people said that it didn't last long for them, but lemme tell you a secret, when I swatched the product, I quickly and half-heartedly cleaned it with cleansing oil because I had to finish my assignment, then in the morning when I looked at my wrist, it's still there! :-o :-o :-o

So I really don't see any point why it's not long lasting . .

Also it's affordable, comes in many colors, super creamy and easy to use, and can be used for lips also because of its consistency! Max awesome, tell you

This is one of my rarest review where I cannot find the flaw of a product, and I am glad that I am able to try and share this with you

Go ahead and try this stuff, because I am super pleased with it :) I know MAC and Illamasqua also carry good pigmented cream blush, but NYX offers better price, it wont hurt your pocket so seriously, give it a try! :)


What's your most favorite color from this collection? I love the Red Cheek! Will play and create a fantasy make up with it probably in the future! :D

Jadi pengen beli *o*
kmaren itu pas k cp hampir beli, cuma mama bilang dy uda ada.. dan ternyata aku tertipu =_=

Gabby said...

Yes.. red cheek looks so intense in the first swatch but looks so pretty after blending! <3

Stella Lee said...

Beli di counter stauku harganya 2x lipat :( Beli sama si riebutik aja :D salah satu OS termurah menurutku :)

Melinda said...

I once was really obsessed with Glow :) I love the color so much, too bad the finish is dewy so it doesn't complement my oily skin. Even with finishing powder (blot powder, hd powder) I still notice the added greasiness on my cheeks. At first it looks lovely but after a while (and I got oilier) it's bothersome. I think it's more recommended to ladies with normal or dry skin. :sweat:

Right now I haven't given up on cream blush and found my savior in Inglot's. It's matte and not so expensive too :) But I haven't found the similar shade as Glow's... :silly:

Stella Lee said...

Couldn't agree more! :heart: I love how it creates a super pigmented red cheek! Not so many products can create it!

Stella Lee said...

Have you tried using primer for oily skin before you put your foundation and cream blush? The step would be primer, foundation, cream blush, loose powder, and if you want, add powder blush as well to mattify it, that's if you have oily skin :)

If you still have problem, you can talk to me on twitter http://www.twitter.com/stellalee92 or on my formsrping as well http://www.formspring.me/StellaLee92 !
Good luck :heart:

I'VE BEEN YOUR SILENT READER FOR SO LONG DEAR <3 but really love all of your reviews! Anyway, is Tickled a really good dupe for Orgasm? Been thinking about buying new blush, if Tickled made a good one, I wouldn't for Orgams or Super Orgasm :p

I feel it can be, and i heard many said that as well on the internet, you can try more research before buy it tho ^^ I dont like super orgasm cos it's too shimmery :(

cmiw said...

omg I WANT have you ever tried the shade golden? I'm the kind who will not suit a blush at all so I'm kinda looking for a super sheer one packed with goldenish glow ;/

Stella Lee said...

No I havent >.< This is the first time i tried the cream blush! :-D
Get bronzer instead then? :D I owned Laura Mercier Bronzer and must say it's great ^.^ pretty sheer but gives healthy looking finish

Pinkerbelle_Cosme said...

great review! i saw some comments at your facebook group that some of the ladies think it doesnt last long.. but in my own opinion it did.. and i didnt even use any primer or set it with loose powder.. just dab a little on my cheek bones and voila! last for hours ;D

stella lee said...

thank you!
I think it depends again on the skin type. cream blush tends to last longer on dry skin compared to oily skin as far as I know. Also the activities that you do also matters :) what's your favorite color? :D
