NYX Cream Blush in Hot Pink Review

 My first venture into the world of cream blushers had to be the NYX Rouge Cream Blush range. Whilst there isn't much coverage and huge advertising campaigns surrounding the brand, the reviews I did read promising intense pigmentation lead me to track them down on ebay. You can order them off the NYX website here but at £5 pound for postage I'd rather buy two!


I got the shade Hot Pink as it's such a versatile shade and pinks are quite a safe option when it comes to blush, so I couldn't really go far wrong.

The packaging is your typical plastic case with a clear top that allows you to see the product and a sticker at the bottom signalling the shade name and ingredients. It does tend to get fingerprint marks over it but it's not really a big deal.

The shade itself is a bright fuschia and can be a little intimidating! However you can always sheer it down by applying the minimum product for a rosy glow instead. I'd rather have a pigmented product as a little really does go a long way!


The formula is a velvety soft cream that blends smoothly on the skin leaving a satin finish. You have enough time to blend it out but I would work fast, mainly because it's so pigmented you could end up applying a bit much.

The NYX cream blushers are some of the most pigmented products I've tried, most people will only need a light tap of product for both cheeks. The blush is also versatile in terms of application. You can go for an effortless look using your fingers or you can use brushes for a more precise application. I prefer using a small blush brush to deposit the colour and then blending it across my (imaginary) cheekbones. I'm yet to try it with a beauty blender but I have high hopes!

The shade swatches almost neon pink but turns into more of a blue toned medium pink when applied. It's still a flattering shade on my slightly warm skin (foundation references here) and it really is a shade that will suit all skin tones! The wear time for me is great, it lasts the full day (I like to save it for special occasions, although I've barely made a dent in it having owned it for a couple of years!) The blush gives a lovely fresh, rejuvenated look without any excess shine.

People with dry skin will love it for the dewy look, although that doesn't mean those of you with oilier skin won't love it equally! I've found that powdering over the blush doesn't make the colour payoff any less vibrant and can help with the wear time. You can also go over it with your foundation brush for a lit from within glow!

Overall, the NYX cream blush has been one of my favourites for a long time, and it's a great affordable product to have! I've been meaning to pick it up in the orange and red too but those pesky delivery charges put me off! You can get it from here for £6.88.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

  4. NYX needs to become more readily available in the UK because ether website is awful for stocking products back up. I've ordered before off amazon but sometimes it's a bit more expensive. Love the shade you have here it's gorgeous x

  5. what a lovely shade. I'm not a fan of NYX because the quality is just not up there, even up to Rimmel standards.
