Shimmermint Eyes + Nyx Stick Blush Review

Muted greens are oh-so pretty for spring. Although it's past that now, especially that I'm in winter. I suppose that's where the grays come in handy, haha. I don't believe in restricting certain looks for certain times of the year, especially mostly everything is opposite to me and I get inspired by summer looks when it's winter, mmkay!! :P
Saturation enhanced to show the colours better.

Nyx Stick Blush Review
*not my pic*

 This is a beautiful blush that is great for just a hint or a lot of colour, depending on how much you apply. I bough mine in the colour Tulip from for $6.

To apply I like to use my index & middle finger to apply to the apples of the cheeks & then blend out with the Sigma 84 Angled Kabuki brush to really blend into the skin. It also looks lovely on the lips as I thought to try out later haha.

This blush looks great by itself but to make it last even longer I'd advise to dust either translucent powder or a similar blush colour over the top.

The first 2 pics are not long after I applied it with a tiny bit of translucent powder over the top, but you can see in the last pic after wearing it all day it has not worn off.
These were released for their spring collection and although it is now winter for me I get a spring feeling from these.
Picture from the Nyx website, I don't think the colours are as accurate as to what I've seen of different swatches.
Although I've only tried one I definitely want to buy more so I would recommend these for a beautiful natural glow.

P.S I've just added this look to the MUG Idea Gallery
