Today I’m reviewing a beautiful blush from NYX – Powder blush in shade Silky Rose.
Price : US $6.00 (approx. Rs 365)
My take on the Product
I am a big fan of NYX products – especially their blushes and lip products. I’ve tried a lot of NYX blushes in the past and while I really liked some of them, some have been a little lackluster in terms of pigmentation and staying power. Silky Rose is one of the best NYX blushes I’ve tried. The formula is impeccable – the texture is soft, silky and smooth without being powdery, it is quite pigmented and blends well. And best of all, the staying power is amazing! I wore this for a maximum of 10 hours and there was very little fading when I took off my makeup after a full day of wear (including being outside for a couple of hours). I was quite surprised because I rarely get such amazing longevity from blushes on my skin especially NYX blushes!
At this price, this is truly a steal!
Silky Rose is a beautiful warm rose color that would be very flattering on the Indian skin. It reminds me a lot of NARS Dolce Vita blush. Use it with a light hand however because it is very pigmented and one could go overboard especially on paler skin. The color warms up and brightens my complexion and matches well with variety of lip colors. I think this would suit a lot of skin tones. Highly recommended!
Rating : 5/5
Availability : Available online at cherryculture.com (they ship worldwide). This shade has been part of the NYX lineup for years now so stores like Beauty Center in Mumbai should have this.
Also available online at Amazon India though very overpriced.
