NYX Stick Blush Swatches

I know I don't use this blog anymore (I'm over here if you're looking for me), but since all my other NYX swatches are here  and 99% of the hits on this blog are people looking for NYX swatches this is the logical place. 

I haven't done more than have a bit of a play with these so I can't really give a proper review as yet. First impressions are - highly pigmented, easy to blend, might need a powder over them to last the distance on oilier skin.

Orchid (the apparently compulsory Orgasm dupe), Tulip, Hibiscus

I bought these on eBay from Joy's Cosmetics, but Aussies can also get them from Cherry Culture and Crush Cosmetics.

  2. Tulip looks really great. I agree with the orgasm comment, pretty much every brand has one

  3. You know, if I saw these solo I wouldn't pay a second glance, but they look so tempting lined up like that in a delicious trio.

  4. Wow they are beautiful colours, wonder how they compare to the NYC ones. Have you tried those?

    1. No, never have - they don't sell NYC here. I was thinking of putting one on my New York shopping list for when Ben goes over in April. Because I really need more blush...

  7. Thanks for the follow! :) Followed you back (on all your blogs hehe).
    It's so weird - I'm pretty sure I came across this page sometime this week when I was browsing for NYX reviews and then found out it belonged to you!
    These look pretty good especially for dry/mature skin. Have you managed to try them out yet? Maybe might buy one but if BeautyJoint sells 'em though.

    1. You're welcome, and thanks for the follow(s) back!

      I did try these out and they were really nice. However I have eleventy million blushes so I ended up getting rid of them in a blog sale. I do actually prefer NYX's regular cream blushes to these ones, they're just a bit creamier and easier to blend. :-)

  8. I recently came across deedee255.blogspot.com and would like to discuss the possibility of paying you to display an advertisement on the site.

    We have a large customer base of clients prepared to pay to display discrete adverts, contextually matched to the content of the page on high quality sites like yours, and this can be a great way to generate an income without compromising your website.

    Please email me back if you would be interested in finding out more and I will send you a follow-up email outlining the opportunity in more detail.

    I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
