NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette!

NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette!
Hey everyone!

Back to the normal Wednesday post this week and I realised I haven’t been doing a lot on makeup recently as I’ve been broadening my blogging horizons so I thought today would be a perfect opportunity to talk to you guys about a product I’ve been using for quite a while now and LOVING.

I’m sure you’ve all heard of NYX and if you haven’t then you need to get on their site right now and purchase yourself something because they are an absolutely fabulous brand and I’m SO happy they’re properly in the UK now. My all time favourite product from them would have to be their Lip Lingeries, why I haven’t written a post on these yet I’m not sure but that will be on my list now, you should try them out in the mean time. BUT ANYWAY today I will be talking about their…

Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette // £17

I’m not a big contour-er, I never have been and doubt I ever will be which is surprising as I have a round and chubby face but hey, just gotta embrace it. The only other cheek palette I own is the Kat Von D Shade and Light which I am absolutely in love with but I’ll only use it on special occasions when i want my makeup to be looking professional as I don’t wanna be wasting such an expensive and fabulous product, haha!

Now I haven’t actually seen a lot of press or promo on this palette at all but I’m sure it’s a pretty recent release, I was lucky enough to receive it from a friend for my birthday along with a Violet Voss Holy Grail palette which you can read about here. I saw it on the NYX website and thought this palette would be perfect for me as it has 8 different shades in so you can completely change what you’re going for every day, this is just what I need really as I tend to change my hair a lot and I don’t own very many blushes at all.

It has pinks, purples, a brown, a peach and a gold. Admittedly, I never thought I’d actually use the peach or the gold on my cheeks but since recently dying my hair yellow, they’re the only colours I’ve been using as the contrast is a lot softer and nicer on my skin with the bright hair.

Every single colour is really pigmented especially the darker ones and they are perfectly easily blendable, they’re also a mixture of matte and subtle shimmer finishes which is great to have in one palette as it means you don’t really need to carry multiple things. This palette has really become a big staple in my makeup bag now and I even use the shades as eyeshadows sometimes if I’m feeling super lazy or forget to bring a palette with me when staying out. It’s just a shame they didn’t also pop a highlight or two on the end! Overall, I think this product is brilliant for the price, it’s compact, convenient, versatile and works out just over £2 for each shade.

What are your favourite contour/blush/NYX products? Do you prefer shimmer or matte?

’Til next time,

    I love the look of this palette, I’ve got the NYX contour palette and it’s a god send. I love that the blushes are a mixture of mattes and shimmers that’s fab. It’s a great way to try a few different shades too x

      Yeah definitely a good way to try different shades! I would never have thought to use peachier colours before getting this! Will have to try out their contour palette 🙂 X

    There is shades for literally everyone! I don’t usually like blush but this palette is beautiful! If I was to get blush I would always get matte, I can’t do shimmer because of the amount of Highlight I put on, it just looks a little too much!xo

    I’m not a blush wearer, but for contour, I’m enjoying my NYX contour and highlight palette which is all mattes! The shades in this palette are gorgeous though and it literally gives you everything you would need x

    This is SUCH a gorgeous palette! I’m not really a blush kinda gal but I think, coming into autumn, I’d love to try more natural looks with rosy cheeks! Need to get my hands on this palette! And btw your photos are LUSH!!!?

    This is so worth the money, there’s so many gorgeous shades! I love a shimmery blush usually but matte is good if I wanna go more natural x

    This blush palette looks absolutely gorgeous! I’ve been on the lookout for a blush palette that has quite a few nice matte shades in and this looks right up my street!

  12. 17th August 2017 / 8:36 pm

    This palette looks great!! The colours are so lovely. x

    I love NYX. I’m totally obsessed with their bright lights eye liner right now. I haven’t used any of their face palettes before but this looks like a total bargain and great product. Great review x

    I always love the idea of blush palettes but i just love individuals so i can bung em in a bag and take them when i’m travelling or staying with my manfriend.

      It’s not too big a palette, I manage to fit it in my makeup bag 🙂

    I wish I liked wearing blush!! It just doesn’t look right on me but maybe I haven’t found a good enough one. This actually sounds pretty good xx

      My advice would be to just experiment and always blend!! I think a palette would be good for you to play around with 🙂 Xx

    Such a pretty palette! I definitely need to experiment more with colour though. This sounds like a pretty good palette as well.
