My Experience with NYX Cream Blush (DIVA):
Packaging: Comes in a compact container with a see through cap, makes it easy to identify the shade. There’s no inbuilt mirror for on go touchups or any applicator. Also the packaging is fragile.
Texture & Pigmentation: These blushes are very smooth & creamy. They are highly pigmented and a little amount is enough to show color on cheeks. Colors are buildable.
Staying Power: The staying power of the blush is quiet decent. It stays on me easily for about 5-6 hours without fading and leaves a slight sheen on my cheeks at the end of the day.
Shade CB06 DIVA: I saw my friend wearing this blush and instantly liked it. But when I saw shade in the container I was not sure of buying this as it’s dark red /Raspberry colored blush having warm undertones which gives very prominent and intense color. She then took a lil amount of this blush as a swatch and blend it& blend it & blend it….voila! the red color completely gone, blends beautifully into skin to give slight hint of pink peachy color to your cheeks. But need to very careful with the amount to use as one may easily go overboard with this shade.
Very tricky shade I must say. You can build color according to your choice. I prefer to blend it till I get lightest hint of this shade. You can ideally keep the color a bit bold on your cheeks for parties, nightouts etc……
Availability in India: NYX has very less number of outlets in India. Even if they have their complete range is not available. Also the price of the product in India is much higher. So better go for online shopping from sites like cherryculture, urbantouch or ebay where they offer for discounted prices.
