I’m already thinking summer, people. Yes, NYX Blush in Summer Peach has been transporting me to sunny summer days even while the temperature is still cold and it feels amazing!
NYX Summer Peach – a beautiful warm peachy-pink shade with golden reflects

Do I need another peachy pink blush in my collection? Probably not, yet this is the one that (of course!) drew me in when I was in Ulta last week. I was most intrigued by the gold reflects in this blush and wondered how it would transfer to the cheek, and I wasn’t disappointed. The base of this blush is extremely pigmented and as such I went a little crazy and ended up having to blend it out quite a bit, which I think are two signs of a great blush: highly pigmented yet easy to blend out. Summer Peach is easy to apply, and if you are scared of the golden reflects in it then don’t be – they are only slightly visible on the cheeks, but give a nice soft look with extra dimension that I love, which gives a nice glow in the matte base. It is not like a mineral blush that tends to give immediate radiance (and can be tricky to apply around larger pores) so I think this is a perfect balance for someone who wants a little extra in their matte blush but isn’t ready to sport full-on radiance! I’m loving it!
What are your favorite NYX blushes? I have Natural and Taupe which are amazing! I’d love to read your recommendations as well.
