NYX Cream Blush - Shade Natural (CB02) Review

Phew! I am back ladies, for the time being that is :P ! This short break gave me a little time to try out a few products too. And that bring us to what I am going to review today, which is another blush from my recent haul :). It is the NYX Cream Blush in Shade Natural (CB02). I am sure sure you have seen dozens of reviews on these NYX cream blushes, as NYX itself is the most sought after, affordable brand that mostly gives quality products. So here I am, adding my two cents :P

PRICE: $6.5  (Rs.650/- in India, available for Rs.488 on StyleCraze)




Left: Blended Right: Unblended


Ya, another night time experiment of mine :P. Didn't want to show you guys my droopy eyes and horrible dark circles. The close up pic shows all kind of imperfections on my face...aarrgghhh /:). Applied the NYX Cream Blush on bare cheeks. On my lips, Lotus Herbals MoistPetals™ Lipstick in Red Rover (#112), topped with Lotus Herbals Seduction™ Botanical Tinted Lip gloss in Lychee Squash (#40).

MY EXPERIENCE: This is my first cream blush and I was really excited to try it out. However, I found the shade to be a light baby pink on swatching on my hand, that I thought it might make me look clownish. I apply it with fingers as well as blush brush and also with a stippling brush(the last one worked best) and all of them gives almost similar results. On application it looks a bit stark on my skintone, but after it gets a bit absorbed by the skin it leaves a dewy glow to the cheeks. It is very light and doesn't weigh down on skin and blends easily. However, the staying is hardly 3 hours on my dry skin, even in this dry weather. I don't know how it will fare in the summer months.

  • Easy to apply and blend with fingers/brushes.
  • You can layer it for more intensity.
  • Doesn't feel heavy on the skin.
  • Didn't cause any breakouts.
  • The quantity is pretty decent and going to last really long.
  • NYX has an extensive color range for these cream blushes and are so affordable.
  •  Pricey in INR.
  • Available mainly through online sites (though I find this option better, many may not find it feasible).
  • Doesn't stay long on me.
  • IDK why I didn't find this particular shade flattering on my skintone.
VERDICT: I really liked my first cream blush from NYX, but I am not sure whether I like this shade on me. I might try out some other shades from this range.I read somewhere they can double up as lipcolors too ( I am yet to experiment on this ;) ). Do let me know if you have tried this trick.

RATINGS: 3.75 out of 5


  1. didn't feel flattering? :O) amay diye de plss :P :P

  2. Pooja, I feel this looks great on you when compared with the Deborah Blush you have :)

  3. This natural blush doesnot look very natural on indian skin tones! tea rose ans rose petal are very flattering 4 us!

    1. hai na...even I felt same :) ...but I guess every1 has their own perception :)

  6. Love the shade <3 I love NYX products <3


  7. Why do you think it came off so quickly? I'm thinking of getting some in tickled as a summer blush but I might not bother if it comes off in a few hours.

    1. It just fades away within a few hours if applied on it own...its better to top it off with some powder blush..if u have high temp in summers then I don't think this would last long!
