NYX BASKED BLUSH + ILLUMINATOR + BRONZER REVIEW



You know what I've realised lately? It's that no matter how long you've been on hiatus from something you love - you'll always go back and make time for it. I'm speaking about blogging and some other things. It's 11:53 pm Sunday, MNL time right now but I'm in the mood of ticking my keyboard away - and I'm enjoying every bit of it! Same is true for friendship, they say that people make time for things that matter to them. #SoTrue

Yesterday, I've had a 9-hour long bonding with Heather, my best friend. Time flies! Bitin and never enough time as usual. We stopped by NYX at SM Makati and obviously, we went gaga ogling their lipsticks and blushes. I'm not a fan of online buying {yes, I'm lola like that} so NYX being available at SM Department Stores since last year was a good news for me!

WHAT IS IT?
Baked to sheer perfection, this luxurious formula is packed full of pigments to provide a natural glow and highlight to the face. Uniquely designed to be used wet or dry, depending upon the makeup statement you want to make. When used dry with a brush, the look is light and fresh. Want more color? No Problem! Apply wet with a makeup sponge for more intensity. {Source}

CMK HAPPY THOUGHTS
It's fairly pigmented. Few swipes and you'll see the colour pop on your cheeks. I got the Spanish Rose {BBL07} as it's perfect for summer! As always, NYX products did not cause any break outs on my skin. Yay! Plus, it's long-wearing too. 


CMK WISHFUL THOUGHTS
To me, the packaging seems vulnerable. One wrong drop and it will smash to pieces! Gulp. Remember my NYX POWDER BLUSH {Review HERE}?, that's exactly what happened. Nadurog siya. *Sniff! I can't seem to decide if it's a good or bad point - the item costs Php 490. Well, if you'll compare this to MAC and NARS, it's def a steal no doubt. Another wishful thought is it has some hint of shimmer dusts, which I'm not a fan of.


CMK THINKS
Summer is a good excuse to revamp your blush collection. If looking fresh and perked up is on your checklist, this fits the job description. I'm using MAC PINK NOUVEAU lipstick above, by the way. -CMK
