MY TAKE ON NYX SWEET CHEEKS BLUSH PALETTE
Packaging: The palette comes in a very pretty case with 8 shades. The packaging is quite sturdy and makes the product travel friendly.
Texture: All the blushes in palette are perfectly compacted and do not feel loose or powdery. Any brush would pick up the right amount of product without much fallout. The blushes leave behind a soft hit of color with dry-matte or dry-shimmery finish.
Shade: There are a total of 8 shades in the palette out of which 2 are shimmery and one has a very slight shimmer in it. Starting from the first shade on top (clockwise), below is a summary on each-
Shade 1- This is a frosty/pearly pink shade with shimmer in it. Gives a natural-subtle glow to your cheeks without much pigment so people with any skin tone can use this. This shade is also perfect as a highlighter.
Shade 2- This is a coral-orange shade with shimmer in it just like the first shade. The shade is a dupe for the highlighting shade in Colourpop The Knockout Pressed Powder Duo.
Shade 3- This is a natural nude shade with a very slight shimmer in it that gives a natural glow to your cheeks.
Shade 4-This shade is truly matte-orange and looks absolutely lovely on the cheeks!
Shade 5- This shade is matte-light coral and looks almost baby pink on medium-dark skin tones.
Shade 6- This is the darkest shade in the palette and is deep burgundy. Go light handed for a subtle color because the shade itself is very dark and highly pigmented. I absolutely love this.
Shade 7- This is a light pink shade and looks lovely on all skin tones without looking too frosty or funny.
Shade 8- The last shade in the palette is the lightest of all yet can be used by every skin tone; because it is build-able and you can always start off light handed for subtle hint of color and then build it up if you prefer it dark.
How I use and staying power: To use, go light handed initially because all the shades are very pigmented and then build it up for a well-pigmented flush on cheeks.
If you do not own any blush or want just one palette full of blushes to avoid carrying/keeping blushes of different shades, this is one palette you can fully depend on! This has everything you need, whether you are a beginner or pro makeup artist or if you prefer light everyday makeup or simply like to go glam. Since some shades are shimmery, they can be either used as blush and you may skip using a highlighter or use them as a highlighter. I love the fact that the palette is suitable for every skin tone and that the shades are all build-able. The finish is very comfortable and long lasting; also because you do not need a lot of product per use, this palette should last ‘forever’! From light-neutral to dark or shimmery shades, the palette has everything! I give this a big thumbs up.
