Today we’re halfway through NYX’s collection of $6 powder blushes. What’s impressive about the line is the range of available shades (well beyond pink). Taupe is most widely loved as a contour shade (used to create a shadow in the hollow of your cheek, making your cheekbones look more pronounced). Raisin, a softly browned plum, reminds me a cross between Lancome’s limited edition spring blushes, High Maintenance and Extravagance.
Sand is sparkly, somewhere between MAC’s Soft & Gentle and Honey Light Highlight Powder. Terra Cotta (yes, two words) is so sparkly it’s almost frosty in a heavy swatch.
