NYX Powder Blush in Stone review
My love for NYX product continues with one more blush. Although this time I got the blush for
contouring rather than using it on my cheeks.
NYX Powder blush in Stone(Rs 550) is a good brown smooth matte blush for contouring Indian skin tones. I used it to mainly contour my cheek bones and slim my nose.
As stated on their website-
Brighten and define your cheeks this season with NYX Powder Blush. NYX Powder Blush has fabulous check colors to choose from. For a touch of soft color on your cheeks, apply these sheer and easy to wear shades.

Those not familiar with contouring can check out the video below, it is explained really well.
I prefer this matte color over bronzer or anything with any shimmer. I even tried with liquid foundation darker than my skin color and it ended up looking really weird. The pigmentation of this blush is great as ever, the blush texture is really smooth and silky, very finely milled. The key to contouring is blending it well and putting it on the right area of your nose and cheekbones. You have to be careful to not overdo it or use it very darkly.
Pros of NYX Blush Stone
- Nice contouring matte blush.
- Can be layered on to slim face or nose.
- Good price.
- The formula is silky and pigmented.
Cons of NYX Blush Stone
- Might not be the right color for more darker skin tones.
- Availability in India.
While I don’t do contouring every time I put on makeup, it really does make a lot of difference especially in photographs. You have to try it a few time to figure out the right placement and blend it out well, you will be surprised how much of a difference it can make on your face.
