Review: NYX Cream Blush in Glow

Today's featured product is NYX's cream blush in Glow. I bought it at IMATS NY back in April when I went nuts at the NYX booth. (I'm sorry, I was a bit overwhelmed and I had never seen NYX prodcuts!) Glow is a bubblegum pink blush. I can't remember how much I bought it for but it was a show price. You can buy it on for $6.99! 

I really didn't like this blush at first, I was still unsure about how to apply cream blushes because I absolutely hated applying it with my fingers. I can never manage to blend it out. I used it once, made myself look like a clown and then disowned it. I still have all my IMATS purchases in a small bag and feel bad that I never get a chance to use any of the products. So I came back to this blush just recently and I don't know what's happened but it's gone amazing.

Glow. It's properly named because it does leave you looking like your cheeks are glowing! I find that it's easier to apply this blush with a stippling brush. The stippling brush magically and lightly blends it in to your skin and it's just gorgeous. Now a thing to note, A LITTLE GOES A LOOONG WAY. I'm not joking! The swatch on the left is when I rubbed my finger in the pot for a second and then so much product came off! It took me a good minute to blend out the swatch on the right! This cream blush is super pigmented (which would explain why I looked like I clown when I applied with my fingers)and it lasted me throughout my entire work day and was just brilliant! Highly reccomend it and I can't wait to try some more!

Have you ever used a NYX cream blush? What are your thoughts on cream blushes in general? :)


  1. I have glow too I really enjoy it on hot summer days. To make sure I don't take to much product at once I dip my finger in and distribute that little bit evenly on both cheeks. I really want to get a stippling brush for it though!

    1. Maybe that's what it is! It's one of those seasonal colors cause I love it right now! Ha, I tried that as well, I guess I'm just not good at dispersing color, haha!

  2. This is such a pretty color I just wish it was easier to find NYX products in Canda :(

    1. Oh I know what you mean! I've only ever seen it at IMATS. Can't find it anywhere else :/ There's a website that sells NYX products pretty cheap if you'd like to check it out! -> :)
