I always want more and more shades of any type of makeup product. It’s definitely a problem for my bank account. It can also be a problem for my makeup storage. So when I received the NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette after the NYX After Dark party a little while ago, both of those issues were solved.
This palette contains 8 different blush shades and retails for $20 US/$29.99. Now I know that $30 for a drugstore brand is a little expensive but each blush works out to $3.75 which makes this seem much more affordable. I’ve swatched out all 8 blush shades for this post and have a few thoughts about the palette as well.
I’ve been playing around with this palette a fair amount since receiving it. I can say that there is some great pigmentation with these blushes but they still apply and can be blended out very easily. And don’t be afraid by the darker shades in the palette. Just use a very light hand and use the buffing technique (buffing out with a powder) to leave just a sheer wash of colour on your cheeks. There are only 2 shades (the ones in the bottom right) that are remotely similar so this palette will be great for travelling.

Have you tried the NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette before? What were your thoughts?
