NYX is one of those companies where a large majority of my favorite or every day makeup comes from. And one thing that I really wanted to try was the Sweet Cheeks Blush palette granted I know a lot of these shades I will most likely not use for blush unless I’m doing it for a specific look. I got this a little while ago but never got around to actually using it until now. So I thought it would be a great idea to do a review/first impression of it.
The order of the swatches are bottom right to top left.
This blush palette costs $20, which isn’t that expensive for a eight highly pigmented blushes that have 0.12 oz in each pan. So it’s roughly $2.50 per shade. I find each of these shades to be very buttery and have no issue blending onto my skin. And my skin loves to be oily one day then dry the next then over sensitive the day after, and I never have issue with the palette. So it’s goes with all skin types and with the wide variety of shades in the palette there is something for everyone.
The top row of blushes are your more peach tone shades, while the bottom row is more of your pink tones. And there are both matte and shimmery finishes depending on your preference. The only shade I know I absolutely cannot make work as a blush as it’s just too dark for my porcelain skin tone is the second on the left in the bottom row. I would use this shade instead for an eyeshadow. My favorite blush out of this palette is the first shade in both the top and bottom row as they go the best with my skin tone. So I can see these shades be used the most out of the entire palette. Well the others don’t get used on a daily basis. Which isn’t a bad thing, as I’m thinking about using the entire palette for an avant garde look at some point during my 100 Days of Makeup over on Instagram.
But overall, I really recommend this palette to anyone!
