Comes in a square packaging with transparent plastic lid from where the blush shade is visible. Packaging is not very sturdy and can break easily if dropped down. Doesn’t have an applicator or inbuilt mirror.
Texture is very soft & silky. Blendable & highly pigmented. It looks very light & natural on skin.
NYX powder blush has a very silky texture which is highly pigmented providing long lasting wear.On hearing spice one would think that it’s for warm skin tone but here its totally opposite. The shade Spice will look good on fair skin tones but I didn’t had a pink colored blush in my collection so bought it. Although it doesn’t look bad on me but I have to use it with a very light hand. As the color is buildable , I really need to control the intensity of it on my skin. The more lighter , the better it looks. Fair skin tones will definitely do justice to the shade.
The blush looks very natural on the skin. It stays on me easily for 5-6 hours as I apply quiet lightly otherwise you can expect it stay for more long. It is easily blendable and glides smoothly on the skin giving you a flushed look. A light layer will gives a good color on my skin.
