NYX powder blushes come in a sleek plastic black square case with transparent lid. They have nice quilted pattern which looks appealing. The packaging looks good but is flimsy & appears tacky with regular usage. Not fond of it much. Earlier I had reviewed shades SPICE & TERRACOTTA from the range.

Cut short- They have soft & smooth texture without kicking up any loose stuff around and are superbly pigmented. But unfortunately they lag well behind in wear power with most of the shades (I have used) looking at how pigmented these are. I would rate them average in terms of application & blending where you do need some efforts to make the formula look & behave well. However looking at the budget friendly price & the huuuugeeee shades selection to satisfy your cosmetic cravings, I would definitely recommend them.
Cinnamon is a scary bright orange in pan which replicates as a beautiful toned down warm apricot orange on my NC42 skintone. Though NYX describes it as Matte finish, could detect tiny microscopic shimmers scattered around. Nevertheless the finish is *almost matte*. The shade is decently pigmented coming out quiet sheer with the first brush giving enough room to build up according to one’s preference. It blends well with little efforts to get a seamless finish. Cinnamon lasts for 4-5 hours on me with subsequent fading. See more pics & swatches:
- Simple easy to locate packaging.
- Soft & smooth texture without being powdery.
- Nicely pigmented giving enough room to intensify the shade.
- Applies & blends well.
- Well priced.
- A very wearable orange.
- The packaging is flimsy which is easily prone to breakage.
- Poor wear time. It barely lasts for 4 hours on me.
- Pricey in India.
Cinnamon though looks scary in pan is one of the most wearable orange I have ever come across. It will rock on dusky beauties. However the poor wear time kills the whole experience with a fabulous shade & silky soft formula packed with rich dose of pigmentation.
