I Heart NYX Rouge Cream Blush

So here’s what you need to know. MAC blushcremes (not to be confused with Cremeblends) were, in my humble opinion, the best cream blushes in the World (review here) and since they were sadly discontinued I’ve searched high and low for a replacement. The best I've found are Stila’s convertible colors, however there’s a new contender...

Some of my lovely readers recommended NYX (thanks girls) unfortunately in the UK it’s only available online – and I’m a swatch first buy later kinda gal so that’s why I procrastinated.
Natural  A creamy, natural light pink with a tiny hint of peach (the closest colour to MAC Blushcreme Ladyblush)

Glow A bright pink that gives cheeks a natural pop of colour. It's fairly sheer, but buildible.

Tickled A gorgeous peachy/corally/pink with a gold shimmer running through it.

First of all they look just like the MAC ones. The packaging is almost identical and they’re available in lots of pretty and bright shades.
Texture & Pigmentation – tacky and creamy, just how I like it. I’m not really into the cream to powder types. I like them to go on creamy and stay creamy. Sadly they’re not as creamy as Blushcremes and depending on the shade they’re fairly sheer but certainly builible. The colour pops on and blends easily, leaving a soft dewy glow.
Application – finger application works fine, but if you want a flawless finish, go with a brush. Stippling brushes work fine, but my go to for cream application is Real Techniques Expert Face.
Longevity – I wear them for work and they easy see me through a 8-9 hour day. Tip – dab a little face powder or pop a little powder blush on top and it will stay put even longer.
Value - £5.50 + postage, what do you think? Far cheaper than MAC and Stila, I just wish they sold in store this side of the pond.
Fantastic and affordable cream blushers, one of  the best on the market. They give a natural, dewy glow that lasts all day. Available in 12 colours £5.50 here. I want more already!
