Face: NYX Cream Blush in Rose Petal & Natural

10 July 2012


A few years ago I found my HG blush..it was one of the old MAC cream formulas in the shade 'lilicent'. It was the only blush I've ever completely used up (my sister fell just as in love and between us we scraped the entire pan out), and I was heartbroken when I used it all up because it was discontinued :( Since then I've kind of given up on blusher and I'm all about the bronze - I hate powder finish blushers, the main reason I loved lilicent was the dewy finish and nothing else really compared! Until these baby's dropped through my door that is. I'd read online that NYX 'natural' was a dupe for lilicent, but I didn't realise that it was available in the UK until last week, when I hastily placed an order!

I picked up both of these shades because I love a nice nude/peachy blush and both of these are spot on. I'd say lilicent was (sobs) somewhere in between the two colour wise but they're both so gorgeous that I don't care! These are the perfect shades for me, and the formula is a dream to work with. They smooth right on to the skin and leave such a healthy glow, I literally have no complaints. Wear time is around the 6 hour mark, but that's not a problem for me as it takes me through the working day. The price is incredible too - such a bargain.

I'll definitely be picking up a few more of these and trying out some more daring shades. Seeing as I haven't tried anything else from the range, does anyone have any other NYX product recommendations?

  6. I've wanted natural for so long! I got their cream blush in boho chic because it was meant to be a mac ladyblush dupe but it was full of chunky glitter! xxx

    1. Natural is my absolute favourite! Glad you said that, I was tempted by boho chic but chunky glitter does not sound good

  12. I have a love/ hate relationship with cream blushers. I love the colours and how they look tested on my hand. But whenever I put them on my face I feel like they just rub off my foundation!
    These look really nice though! xx
