NYX Powder Blush Pinched Review, Swatch

NYX Powder Blush in Pinched review

While I do own NARS blushes, I didn’t buy Nars Orgasm because I knew I would rarely wear something with shimmer anywhere. But that doesn’t stop me from buying any Orgasm dupes that are out there for cheap. So when NYX came up with the latest addition in their collection NYX Power blush in Pinched (Rs 550), and was said to be the dupe for the big O, I didn’t even blink before I buying it.

The blush is a very natural and soft peachy pink with tiny gold glitters that is not chunky like many drugstore brands. The pigmentation is great, maybe not as much as Nyx’s other powder blush shades, but it’s the perfect kind of sheer for it to look natural and radiant.
The blush texture is really smooth and silky, very finely milled. I think its really pretty and has made me think of buying more blushes with a hint of gold shimmer. I think it will suit our Indian skin tones pretty well since it has warm undertones. My only complain would be the packaging which is not as polished as compared to other NYX products, it felt kind of cheap.
But at this price, I am not complaining. The blush lasted about 5-6 hours on me, not as long as other pigmented blushes though.
