NYX Cosmetics was kind enough to surprise me with their new “Sweet Cheeks” Blush Palette. This palette contains 8 gorgeous, highly pigmented colours that are meant to suit any skin tone. The palette retails for USD$20.00 which can seem to be a bit on the pricey side for a drugstore item, but it is pretty reasonable considering you are getting 8 large pans that can also be used as eyeshadows! You can purchase the palette on their website here, or in your local drugstore that you know carries NYX.
The PR package also included 2 NYX brushes which are meant to be used with the palette. There is the larger “NYX Pro Dual Fiber Powder Brush” (USD$14.00) that is great to apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks for an even application. They also included the “NYX Pro Blending Brush” (USD$10.00) that is awesome for the crease of your eyes, as they recommend using this palette even for eye looks! That’s also another thing I love about this palette is how versatile it is.
I love the shade selection in this palette. You have 2 more shimmery shades which can also be used as a subtle highlighter, and then the rest of the 6 shades are matte/satin. You have your deeper oranges/terracotta shades, your more babydoll pink/berry shades and your coral pinky shades. You really have every colour you could want and they are beautiful on their own or even layered with one another to create your own custom shades!
The packaging is sleek and very travel friendly. It’s made out of a sturdy plastic and the cover is clear, allowing you to see the interior which I like.
As you can see the shades are all very pigmented but they can also be used more sparingly if you just want a touch of colour or you can apply more if you want something more bold. The shades are great for all skin tones and they are very long lasting which is a must! Overall I really love this palette and think it’s one of the best blush palettes I’ve seen in a while!
