Company’s Description

Add a touch of color with our creamy and extremely pigmented Stick Blush! Available in eight rich shades! Apply and receive the perfect glow every day!

NYX’s Stick Blushes are cream blushes that come in stick form and in eight (8) different shades. This review is for the shade Pink Lotus–a bright blue-pink shade with gold shimmer.

If you would like to see swatches of all eight (8) shades, please see this post.

Packaging: 9/10

These cream blushes come in small, cylindrical tubes made of plastic that show the color of the blush inside. The caps slide off and snap shut. The bases twist to push up the product inside.

Quality: 8.25/10

Pink Lotus is a bright shade with noticeable shimmer particles, particularly when applied to the lips. The color needs some layering and blending before it will leave a smooth finish on the skin.

The formula of the cream blush is actually pretty solid in the packaging, but it’s surprisingly non-drying on the skin. You can use this product on the lips as well, though I found that Pink Lotus makes dry patches stand out and the shimmer particles look a bit strange on the lips.

The shade faded after about five (5) hours of wear.

Ease of Use: 8.25/10

Despite being stiff in the packaging, this blush transfers onto the skin well, though it does require putting some pressure onto the tube. Like many cream blushes, you’re best off applying several thin layers of the blush to help the color blend out evenly.

Price: 9.5/10

For $6.00 you get 0.013 ounces of product. This isn’t a ton of product, but it’s still a great deal for the price.
