As soon as I saw the NYX Ombre Blushes I knew I wanted to try them. The design alone drew me in – how beautiful? There are 8 different shades on offer for just £9, which meant that I quickly got my hands on the shades that most appealed to me – Code Breaker, Insta Flame, Sweet Spring & Mauve Me.
Out of all the shades I own, Sweet Spring is one of my favourites. The mix of the blue toned pink moving into the brighter yellow toned pink is definitely a shade that I find flattering.
The Ombre Blushes are extremely pigmented, more so than any of the blushes I have tried from NYX in the past. I will admit that they feel a little ‘drier’ than your usual blushes, however this is not a huge problem – I just find that it means a little more fall out when swirling your brush into the blush pan. They blend well and last for around 7-8 hours. Due to the intense pigmentation of the blushes, I tend to use a duo-fibre brush as I find that it helps to not apply too much product.
If I’m honest I do wish the packaging of the Ombre Blushes was a little more exciting. The black plastic casing feels study and very protective but I just wish it reflected the design of the powder a little more – a small thing to complain about, I know. I do however like that it includes a big mirror.
I would recommend the NYX Ombre Blushes to everyone. The design of the powder and the pigmentation it holds makes a winning combination. Sweet Spring is not currently available in Boots, but can be ordered directly from the NYX website www.nyxcosmetics.co.uk
