IMATS Spotlight: NYX Rouge Cream Blush

Happy Friday!!! :D

Summer is officially over, but it's still so hot here in California!
Even though I cannot wait for cooler weather, instead of complaining, I decided to just take advantage of the "still summer-y" temperature and attempt to recreate this look:

Beauty Spy: Sexy Poolside Glow
A flush of pinkish coral across the cheeks is summer at its prettiest. Dab cream or powder blush (both work) on the apples of your cheeks somewhat irregularly -- so the shape is more of a spray than a circle -- then blend with your fingers. Add a nude lip gloss for total haphazard, natural-looking sexiness.


The NYX cream blush I got at IMATS works perfectly for this look, I'm so happy! :)

NYX ROUGE CREAM BLUSH
More delicious than peaches and cream? We like to think so. Our velvety smooth mineral Rouge Cream Blush offers a sheer wash of radiant color. The glorious payoff is dewy, sultry, and long-lasting. Available in 12 shades.


I got mine in Glow (CB05).
It's described as "plummy-pink", but it's really more like a pretty, sheer pink. 
I really love the color, it's very beautiful, especially when applied and blended.

I also dust a bit of powder blush on top of this -- it makes it last longer.


It's so creamy and so easy to apply.
It gives me a beautiful, natural-looking glow!

A little goes a long way, so this will definitely last a long time. :)

At $6.75, this is a great buy!
I actually want to get it in other shades... help me choose? ;)

This cream blush is available in 12 shades:

Rose Petal/ Natural/ Tea Rose/ Glow/ Diva/ Red Cheeks

Rose Petal -- Rosy-pink
Natural -- Soft light pink
Tea Rose -- Medium beige-pink
Glow -- Plummy-pink
Diva -- Plum
Red Cheeks -- Red-pink

Hot Pink/ Orange/ Golden/ Boho Chic/ Bronze Goddess/ Tickled

Hot Pink -- Bright hot pink
Orange -- Soft orange
Golden -- Shimmering golden brown
Boho Chic -- Light blue-toned pink
Bronze Goddess -- Shimmering bronze
Tickled -- Shimmering peachy-pink

What do you guys think? Have you ever tried NYX's Rouge Cream Blush before?
Which shades caught your eye?

Happy Weekend!!! :D
