So NYX literally have to be my new makeup obsession. If you read my mini NYX haul that went up this weekend (here) you will know that these products I picked up are a very new addition to my makeup collection, I love everything and I'm already eyeing up more things to buy from the brand. I'm so excited, because I actually want to give everything a full review - I think everything I picked up deserves a little bit of spot light on my blog. So today I want to rave about the High Definition Blush that I picked up because its so gorgeous and definitely a good one for summer.
First of all we can just take a moment to admire the pretty packing. At a first glance this blush just looks like its wrapped up in its black shiny box, but the clasp is not just any old clasp! Wait for it ... Its in the shape of a bow! How frickin amazing is that? I mean any makeup that has bows for packaging gets a huge thumbs up in my book, I just love that tiny detailing and you can bet your last penny that I'll be adding some more to my collection just for this reason.
As for the actual blush, I'm so impressed. The shade I picked up 'Intuition' is a gorgeous dark coral shade that has slight pinky tones to it. It's not until I watched this for the first time that I noticed it has avery subtle iridescent gold reflect in it. As soon as I swatched this I was like this looks just like Nars Orgasm. Now I've not actually tried the most famous blush on the plant, but from the pictures I've seen 'Intuition' looks like an exact dupe. I had no idea when I purchased this blush as Boots online don't have proper examples of what the product looks like, so this is such a huge bonus!
Whether this blush is a dupe or not, I don't care because it is so pretty once its on. The shimmer is so subtle, its more like a highlight on my cheek and the pink and coral tones just add a lovely touch of warmth to my face. This is definitely a winner for summer. With a tan this blush is going to look stunning, so if your off on your holidays, you have to pick this up!
The actual powder is really lovely, theres little fall out and you only need the slightest bit of product as it's highly pigmented. I am so happy with this purchase as I've discovered a new favourite blush and I can't wait to pick up some more next payday.
Let me know what blushes you've tried from NYX? Are you a fan of this shade?
