The simply named Blush is yet another standout from NYX Cosmetics. The mica- and talc-based powder blush has a smooth, non-flaky texture and soft, sheer application that builds well for darker skin tones (or simply those who want more color).

As for the shades, there are some beautiful options that have a matte or soft shimmer finish. Some of the colors are very shiny, but those are easily avoided or embraced, depending on your preferences and the look you're going for.

This fragrance-free powder blush is recommended for all skin types.

This small Los Angeles–based makeup line was founded in 1999 by a woman named Toni Ko. The company's Web site is vague about Ko's background, merely stating that she developed an interest in cosmetics as a teenager (you know, just like about 99.9% of teenage women) and wanted to create her own line of cosmetics. Ko's goal was to produce high-quality products at affordable prices, and that's the draw of NYX (pronounced "nicks") Cosmetics. We are pleased to report that, for the most part, Ko succeeded in her childhood dream.

It is important to note that this line offers a full selection of makeup products, from foundations to lip gloss. However, the only place to access everything NYX Cosmetics has to offer is their Web site. The Ulta chain is the largest distributor of NYX Cosmetics products in the United States, but they carry a smaller selection of NYX products. The good news is that most of the few NYX products Ulta stocks are impressive, especially the powder eyeshadows, which compete evenly with eyeshadows that cost a lot more.

    Finally a reasonable priced blush that lasts...
    • This blush is as close as I can get to a dupe for Tarte's Amazoian clay 12 hour blush w/out the 26.00 price tag. I am fair skinned & I have the Pinched shade which is a dark pink. Usually powder blush disappears on my face w/in an hour & this stayed on four.

    Surprisingly nice
    • These blushes were so cheap I thought that I could toss them (or gift them) if I didn't like them. Well, that didn't happen! These are as good as, if not better, than other dept. store blushes I've used. Nice color selction - Peach and Mauve, both matte, and Pinched, with a slight bit of shine, work good on my light skin. Good pigmentation and adherence, and small enough to carry in a purse. Packaging is kind of flimsy and no mirror but minor considerations. Definitely worth a try.
