My Experience with NYX Powder Blush in Cocoa:

Cocoa is a beautiful deep reddish brown shade. It does not have any shimmer and goes on completely matte. The powder is very finely milled and feels very silky and glides smoothly on skin. This shade is not as pigmented as other NYX blushes. It actually goes on sheer, but it is definitely buildable. Staying power is great, about 4-5 hours on my skin. The packaging is decent and good. Its plastic and not too sturdy, so you have to be careful not to drop it. The top is see through which helps in locating it in a messy drawer.

The only con for me is this particular shade. My skin tone NW23 already has pink undertones and I also have some reddish-ness on my face. Using this as a blush makes me look muddy and blotchy. This shade could be used for contouring for people with fair and light skin, but for dusky skinned girls, this shade would blend with the skin and hardly show up and if it does show up, it will look like a very natural flush.

Overall, a good quality blush at a good price but a difficult shade to work with.
