I'm A Blush Whore

Can someone stop me? I have a bad addiction when it comes to blushes...and lipsticks.

I bought these guys from cherryculture.com which I know you are all familiar with. They have great customer service and the blushes arrived within two weeks. Great job Cherry Culture! Very impressive. I really recommend checking the site out They carry a lot of affordable brands such as Milani, Sinful Colors, and NYX.

Say hello to my newly acquired NYX blushes- I bought 5 powder and 2 cream blushes.

I have a photo of me wearing NYX Espresso on my cheeks with a little MAC Strobe lotion as a highlight. Espresso is warming, and it bring your cheeks out. 
So all in all, my favorite is Mauve and Espresso


Mauve being a...well mauve and matte
Espresso being a warm mauve with a hint of pink 


By the way, Peach isn't a peach shade at all..well maybe a little bit, but it's more of a light pink. Think MAC Well Dressed without the silver flecks.


I love how it looks on my cheeks because I own a lot of cool-toned blushes already, so a little change is good right? I'm happy that got these two babies from NYX.


Do you own any blushes from NYX?


Have a great Wednesday!

  2. @Julianne- It is so you need a really light hand :)

    @mw- They are not. They are better than MAC cream blushes and very easy to blend :)

  3. Hmm, my NYX Peach blusher is definitely light peach with a satin finish.

    Also, I have to say I've had some bad experiences with cherry culture - they didn't send one of the items I ordered, and didn't reply to my emails. I don't purchase from them anymore and get my NYX on ebay instead. x

  4. @Rocaille- Mine is a bit peach but I can see more pink than peach. I'm sorry to hear that, but I had good experiences with them. Well this is only my 3rd time purchasing something @ cherry culture. :)

  5. I agree with you about Peach, I was disappointed when I got it cause it's not peach like I thought it would be. I love their cream blushes! I have one of their mosaic powders in love and it's a great peach, but it breaks me out in little whits bumps every time that I wear it.

  10. @Tracy D- PLACE an order! im an enabler haha! Its so worth it and theyre having a sale, so dont miss that! x

    @ Winnie- the cream blushes are NOT sticky at all. If you have a MAC cream blush, that is way stickier than these NYX cream blushes. Super easy to blend. x
