My take on Nyx Cream Blush in Diva:
This is my first cream blush and I am so glad I got it. It is absolutely amazing. Diva looks like a deep reddish maroon in the pan which would scare most of the people. I was quite skeptical about using this blush when I got it but now this has become my go to blush. Though it looks dark maroon in the pan, when blended properly it gives more of a peachy pink look on the cheeks with a hint of red. It doesn’t contain any shimmer or shine. Being very dark, one can easily end up with clown cheeks with this blush. To prevent this, I always apply just one or two dots of this blush on my cheek and then blend it properly by tapping it on cheeks and then using a brush to blend it towards my temples and it ends up giving me a very matte pink toned color. I love it more than any other pink blushes because it gives a natural flush. This color can be used in the day time as well as in the night.
The texture of this blush is amazing. It s very creamy and smooth. It spreads very easily on the cheeks and is super easy to blend and gives a dewy look on the cheeks which can be subsided by a light touch of powder. The pigmentation of this blush is superb. Only one or two dots are required for a natural color. Pigmentation can be builded up. It easily lasts on my oily skin for about 5-6 hours with no base and without any fading. It leaves a slight hint of color even at the end of the day. Despite having oily skin, it hasn’t broken me out. :touchwood:
Swatches: Without blending / After blending:
(I applied 3-4 dots and the blended it using my fingers)
It comes in a plastic packaging with a see through cover and flip flop cap. I find the cap to be fragile. It does not contain any mirror or brush in it. Being a cream blush, it has hygiene issues. It is important to pick the blush with a clean brush or after sanitizing your fingers.
