Swatches: NYX Powder Blush in Pinched

Finally here's the swatches of the NYX powder blush which I bought not too long ago. I bought this at SG$8 from Smoochiezz. I was contemplating between a few shades but in the end decided on this since this is the only color I would wear on a daily basis.

NYX Powder Blush in Pinched

As pigmented as it is, the blush however does have it's downside. I find that it can be pretty powdery. As you can see from the pan, the powder is kinda all over the pan. It can be quite messy especially when I dab my brush in hurry in the morning.

The color is more of a pinky/peachy tone and has shimmers in it. I do find that the shimmers can be quite chunky some times, and I don't think it's milled as finely as the high end blushes. So I have always been pretty careful not to over apply it on my cheeks. But for SG$8, this is still really worth the money!

Overall Rating:

p/s: I'm planning to purchase the other colors, let me know what's ur fav blush from NYX. =)



  1. I have 3 blushes from them that I love - Pinky, Peach and Natural! <3 Love 'eeeem!

    They are all quite powdery, but they're also very soft.. Pinched is actually their newest shade : D

    1. I'm planning to get more from them....I think NYX's blushes are definitely worth purchasing..

  2. My fave NYX blush is 'Terra Cotta''s kind of like a blush and bronzer all-in-one. It's a warm peachy/cinnamon(?) color. I'm terrible at describing things :)

  3. I just ordered a few NYX blushes :) I've never tried them before but they seem to be really nice quality. I'd say yours is gorgeous :D It's a nice warm color :)

  4. Nice swatch, it reminds me a little of Orgasm by Nars :) I love Angel and Natural by NYX, two beautiful colors for people with fair skin :)
