Review: NYX Baked Blushes!

Glowing Cheeks!

NYX Baked Blushes
Yes... more blush! haha but these are baked so I had to try them out! ;-) I'm a blush fanatic so I love purchasing different colors and finishes to add to my collection. The NYX Baked Blushes retail for $7 but I purchased them during a 30% off sale so it was the perfect time to try them out! There's a total of 12 colors in the line from lighter shades that can be used as highlighters and darker ones that serve as blushes. The color range is pretty nice too!

When I first received these I was surprised by how tiny they were! For some reason I thought the packaging would be bulkier but they are very compact. Plus they have the cute little bow as a clasp, just adorable! The NYX site claims that these are baked to sheer perfection to provide a natural glow and I must agree! If you're expecting a really pigmented blush like the Milani Baked Blushes then these aren't for you. They give your cheeks a subtle color and luminous sheen that looks really pretty. Now, the site does say you can use these wet for a more intense color but I haven't tried them that way. I just recommend to apply these before your foundation fully sets so it has something to adhere to thus providing more color. Here are the swatches:
NYX Baked Blushes
*Journey- a soft pink, very muted but still provides that pretty glow!
*Foreplay- a brighter pink with gold shimmer, really pretty! It actually leans more coral on the cheeks.
*Ignite- a muted orange and my favorite from the bunch! Looks gorgeous on the cheeks and since its sheer it's fool proof to apply.
Bottom line: I think these blushes are great! When wearing these you can skip a highlight since they are baked so it's dual purpose product. They blend really well on the skin and the color is buildable but not as opaque as the Milani ones( but... sometimes you don't want a super pigmented blush!) The price point is great so overall I really like these! These would be perfect to wear when you go all out on your eye look because they don't compete with the rest of your look. If you've been wanting to give them a try I say go for it! :-)


  1. really like the finish of those! I tried out their cream blushers and wasn't that impressed..but I'd be willing to give these a chance ;)

    1. Yeah these are great! :-) Ignite is a must have!
