Favorites: Pink Blushes.

Hello Beauties! If you pay any attention to my posts it is no secret that I LOVE blush! This blush obsession really came quickly and skyrocketed out of control.

I figured I share a few of my favorites and what a better way to start with the color that started this whole thing, pink.

Some of these blushes have a coral/red undertone but for the shake of this post they'll be pink.

NYX Powder Blushes.

Hello Beauties! When I first got into makeup I bought a NYX powder blush and it shattered before I even got the chance to use it so after that I put those on my "do not buy list" but after I saw a few posts with swatches I decided to give them another chance.

Lately Ulta has been having NYX BOGO 50% and these are the shades that I have so far.

From left - Amber, Desert Rose, Cinnamon

Description: "NYX Powder Blush is a highly pigmented silky powder blush that combines rich color with long-lasting wear as it delivers a healthy, natural glow to the skin"

Amber - peachy pink color

Desert Rose - deep pink color

Cinnamon - light orange color

Swatches from left: Cinnamon, Desert Rose, Amber

Initial thoughts:
So far I'm glad I decided to give these another shot because they are really pigmented and I like the texture of these. I really like like diamond pattern that they have.
