Makeup Talk: NYX Powder Blush in "Bourgeois Pig"

Hey! Long time no makeup review! Today, I wanted to review one of my favorite affordable blushes for anyone who is interested! I have a mixture of high and low end beauty products, and this definitely includes blushes. Blushes and foundations are my weakness. I always am looking for the "perfect" one. This blush is in the running for being nearly perfect...but let me break the details down for you!

 Price: $5.00
Amount: 0.14 oz (4 grams)
Finish:  Matte with a glow (is this even possible?!)
Pigmentation: Great. It is buildable, but I find that I only slightly dab my blush brush into it, and then tap off the excess- for each cheek.

Wear time: 6+ hours. I honestly don't time the hours I have my makeup on...but I do know that when I get ready at 7 a.m and finish classes for the day, sometimes I won't wash my makeup off until 9 or 10...and the blush is still there. Not perfect, but it really can rival high end brands! Granted, I wear a primer basically anytime I wear foundation, blush, etc. so that could increase wear time. If you are happy with your foundation routine and think it holds up throughout the day, then putting any blush over it should give you a long last result, as long as the blush is of good quality!
Irritation: None for me. I haven't had any issues with it causing any breakouts or irritation!

Using a light hand for everyday application gives me this result. See the glow I am talking about? I have oily skin and do not think this accentuates it or makes me look more oily. 

Do I recommend this? Of course! If you are looking for an affordable line of blushes, I do recommend NYX's line of powder blushes!

Any product review requests? Just let me know! Thanks for reading!
Xo, Kelsey
