Review: NYX Taupe Blush
|Yours will look less used, promise. Well, at first.|
NYX Taupe has had a super weird relationship to the internet. People love it, but they are also bizarrely convinced that it has been discontinued. NYX has had a hell of a time squashing these rumors. They have said, though, “We don’t have any plans to discontinue our Powder Blush in Taupe”.

This blush is awesome in terms of pigmentation, since it can easily be applied so that it’s nice and sheer or built up into something dramatic. I do recommend diligently cleaning this blush in addition to your brushes, as I have found that oil builds up on this product pretty easily. Other than than that, my only complaint is the general bulkiness of NYX blush packaging… an easily forgivable flaw, certainly.
I have absolutely no visible cheekbones when I do not contour, and I think that the effect of this product is quite flattering. I have yet to find a higher end product that is as attractive and easy to use as the NYX Taupe Blush.
