NYX Rouge Cream Blush 'Glow' & 'Rose Petal'

Sorry to bombard you all with post upon post featuring NYX cosmetics but I promise these are the last products to show off from my CherryCulture 'Haul'.
At $4.75 these only cost me about £2.90 each - I know, bargain!
I'd had my eye on 'Boho Chic' for the longest time so when I found out it was out of stock I was slightly gutted and opted for 'Rose Petal' and 'Glow' instead. Of course I instantly compared these to my Mac blushcreme in 'LadyBlush', both are highly pigmented, creamy, easy to blend and have a dewy finish. The Mac blushcreme's have slightly more product (2.5g more) but that's reflected in the price, and the packaging is very similar except Mac is sturdier and more expensive looking. The consistency is pretty much identical, if anything I'd say Mac 'LadyBlush' is slightly tacky on application.
The only real difference between the NYX and Mac cream blushers is the price, at £17 Mac is a nice luxury item but if you've looking for a cheaper alternative the NYX cream blushers are just as good!

Rose Petal is a gorgeous, very flattering cool toned pink shade which is a very close match to 'ladyblush
Glow is a true deep pink, that reminds me of the classic 'English Rose' look

  1. Rose Petal looks gorgeous! xx

  2. I love LadyBlush, it's one of my all time favourite blushers. I'm always open to new cream blushers though and at £2.90 it would be rude not to! Rose petal is amazing looking!

  13. I love both of them! Brilliant picks.
    Did you know that NYX is available now in the uk? Only on the website but they are trying to get it into shops.
    Gosh also released very good cream blushes. I recommend the peach one it's sooo pretty and it dries a bit matte.
