Say hello to my current love: NYX's blush in the shade "Mocha".
With the most deceiving name (quite possibly ever?) I knew that we were going to get along from the beginning; considering I get called "Casey" (rhymes with "lacy") 85% of the time upon reading my name (Cassie), I understand that names can be confusing even when there's really no need for them to be (Mocha has a clear top so you can see what color you're buying, I've never seen a Casey spell her name C-a-s-s-i-e, etc.).
Slight rant aside, take the jump below for full swatches and review!! :)
Though I only own two NYX blushes (I'm telling you, my restraint level has been strong this year!!), they really are fantastic bargains. At only $4.99 (and often times a BOGO 50% off offer at ULTA), I really have nothing to complain about.
NYX blushes have a lovely pyramid quilting pattern, are smooth as silk, and have great pigmentation.
Please excuse yet another paper cut that I was unaware of on my figer *head hang of shame*
Like said, "Mocha" has absolutely no correlation between the delicious chocolate coffee drink and its actual color (I really can't even begin to imagine what NYX was thinking when naming this one).
"Mocha" is rather a delightful matte rosy-pink which really wakes your face up in these awkward not-winter-but-not-spring-either months we're currently trudging through.
If you're looking for a cheap makeup fix I'd definitely recommend perusing the NYX section at ULTA and nabbing one (or five) of these blushes; no regrets here!!
Have you tried any NYX blushes?
Love 'em? Hate 'em?
What are your favorite beauty on a budget blushes?
