NYX Stick Blush in Orchid

_20140208_193337

I’ve never really ventured out when it comes to blushes. I’ve pretty much stuck to typical blush powder compacts with and occasional dip into something new. This was one of those times. You get .21 oz and I purchased mine from Ulta for a measly $6. I tend to go crazy for anything that has a peach or coral shade to it, so I chose the shade 06 Orchid. I had super high hopes for this one…

The product comes in a twist up tube. The color is creamy, slightly tacky, and very pigmented, with flecks of gold glitter all throughout.

The consistency was a little weird to me, and I never got used to it. I always felt it on my skin. Oh, and It looked horrible on me. Absolutely horrible. I think my skin type was the reason though. Oily skin, large pores…not the best canvas for this product. I looked like I had a slightly tacky, pink smear on my face, with a gold glitter bomb as the cherry on top. It just wasn’t meant for me. But with a different skin type, this could be great. I’ve read great reviews on this, but when it comes to me, maybe next time NYX.
