Hi lovely ladies,
Hope you enjoyed the weekend. I took rest and lazed about because I had a hectic week. Now, I am ready for the week and raring to go; I thought of reviewing a product which I discovered in my stash. It’s a blush from N.Y.C and you need to scroll down for pictures and details.
Highlight and accentuate the natural beauty of your face with NYC New York Color Cheek Glow Single Pan Blush Powder. This natural-looking blush instantly adds color and vibrancy, with a soft, pink glow that’s ideal for a variety of different skin tones. The pressed blush powder contains calendula extract to soften your skin and allow it to breathe freely without clogging pores. Oat flour acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps to soothe and moisturize dry, irritated or sensitive skin. Rice starch absorbs oil and reduces shine, for a long-lasting sheer, matte finish. NYC blush, West Side Wine, can be used over foundation and pressed powder or swept over tinted moisturizer for a subtle flush. The soft, natural finish is ideal for day or night-time use.
My Experience with NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush West Side Wine:
The packaging reeks cheap quality. Honestly, the packaging is flimsy. The transparent plastic cap is not sturdy and may break if excess pressure is applied. The cap is difficult to open and may crack long nails. It has a brush enclosed. The back of the blush has the product label. Although the packaging is compact and handy, it is not travel friendly.
The color of the blush is a dusty rose. It is a very pretty shade with mauve tones, and will look nice on pale/fair/medium skin tones. The pigmentation is not great, so it takes multiple swipes to show up on tanned medium/wheatish skin tone. If you are pale or fair, this would be a perfect daily wear blush. It is a perfect option for those who hate blushes with red/pink undertones.
This blush comes with a black synthetic brush which is okay, but I would definitely suggest using a better quality brush, something from Real Techniques. With a good quality brush, you can disperse the color evenly. The texture is finely milled, but slightly powdery. It doesn’t feel chalky or gritty at all. The biggest problem is that it kicks up a lot of powder in the pan. Just see the pictures and you will find loose blush powder on the black pan interior and even sides.
If you like natural-looking cheeks with just a hint of color, you will enjoy this. You cannot go overboard with this, and you need to invest some efforts in building it up. It’s very easy to blend. It doesn’t look patchy or feel dry, neither does it accentuate pores. It has a staying power of 3 hours or so before it fades off.
Pros of NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush West Side Wine:
- Dusty rose shade.
- Gives natural-looking rosy cheeks.
- Good for lighter complexions.

Cons of NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush West Side Wine:
