Though NYX Tea Rose Rouge Creme Blush was technically the first creme blush I’ve ever bought, it wasn’t the first I’ve tried. My NYX stuff has been sitting around in the “to do” box ever since the whole debacle, and I’m finally almost done with it.
Swatching through everything did help me forgive the brand a bit. I am in love with their shadows and their lipsticks are pretty great too. And you can’t beat that price! I don’t know if I’ll ever care to order from their site again, but I would definitely pick them up at Ulta or Cherry Culture.
Tea Rose pops more orange on the NYX website swatch, in real life the color is more of a peachy rose. It’s nicely pigmented and quite easy to blend.
As a novice with creme blushes, I did have an easier time with Le Metier de Beaute Ginger Lily, which was more buildable, but if you’re in the market for something less expensive, NYX Rouge Creme Blush should suit your needs quite nicely.
