It can be incredibly intimidating when you are standing in front of a cosmetics display, looking at multiple shades of a single product. Modern day cosmetic companies give us more choices than ever in eyeshadow shades, lipstick colors, and blushes. We like to think of Beauty Gala as “window shopping” in a way – you get to see photographs and swatches without dishing up the money. NYX Cosmetics Blush is an all-around great product…it’s inexpensive, and it is incredibly rich in color, so you only need a little swipe every time you apply. Unfortunately for us indecisive babes, it also comes in twenty-five different shades. One of my favorite shades out of the NYX Blush collection is “Pinky,” a bright, bubblegum pink blush that looks sweet and feminine on the cheeks. To see more photographs and swatches,
Pinky is a bright, bubblegum pink blush that adds a doll-like look to your cheekbones. This blush is highly pigmented, so you can apply lightly for a sweet flush, or apply heavier for really defined cheeks. One of the reasons I love this blush so much is that it’s so versatile. I can wear this with so many different makeup looks – everything from a smokey eye to a neutral brown eye to a bare eye with nothing but mascara. This blush complements and adds to each one of those looks in a different way, but Pinky always comes off as sweet, girly, and glowing.
The swatch above looks intimidating, right? Keep in mind that this blush is very pigmented, and I typically apply two or three coats when applying on my hand for a swatch. The blush just gives you a bright, gorgeous wash of “wow” pink. Also, the fact that this blush is so pigmented is great for beauties with darker complexions. Finally, a pink blush that can stand up to darker skin tones!
Pinky also makes a great eyeshadow and lip color, which I have admittedly used it for before. For my lips, I will sweep a dab of petroleum jelly on my lips, and then rub this blush onto my lips. For eyeshadow, I have dipped my eyeshadow brush directly into the blush and used it for a bright bubblegum eyeshadow shade.
