Review/Swatch: NYX Cream Blush in Rose Petal

Hey! I haven't updated my blog in a while because I'm so buzzzy this week...I'm also kinda depressed this past few days so I really have no will to do anything when I'm depressed, even fun things like blogging.

Putting depressing matters aside, I bought my first NYX cream blush. I bought it at the same time I bought my first NYX lipsticks...I know I have many reviews to make and I'm way behind my schedule with things I should've reviewed a long time ago.

NYX Cream Blush in ROSE PETAL

Natural light:

My original plan was to buy NYX cream blush in "NATURAL", but my seller accidentally made a mistake and gave me the "ROSE PETAL" one. It's ok with me (^_^) no hard feelings because I collect things...hahahah! and she said that they almost look the same so I'm not really missing anything major...but I will still get that "NATURAL" one because I'm always curious! hahaha!

w/ Flash:

- very creamy!
- very pigmented! a little goes a long way!
- pigmentation is still good even after a long day in a very very hot weather like here in the Philippines! I'm amazed that most of the blush did not wear off even if I sweat like a pig...literally...I sweat a lot as early as 10 am in the morning because of our very very hot weather.
- the blush is quite big! I'm surprised! it would take me a very long time to finish this.

- not readily available here in the Phil., but I ordered online from digitaltraincase. No hassle, fast and efficient ordering from her and I like that! Don't worry I'm going to order more! She gives the lowest prices of NYX products, so far, here in the Phil.
- a bit expensive (P360) than the price offered in the US, but hey! I'm not in the US!

Here are the swatches:

in natural light:

the unblended (left) and blended side (right). I made the blended side darker to make it more visible for ya. Giving you the idea of what to expect with the pigmentation when applied on the skin.

w/ flash:

I'm not really the blush type of girl (I only own 2 blushes -- one is from a local brand here in the philippines and the 2nd one is this). I'm more of a lipstick, lipgloss, and nailpolish girl, but having this would make me want to try more blushes next time! (^_^)

have a nice day!
