Today I'm going to be reviewing one of the products that I kindly received from Blanc II Noir a few weeks back and that is the NYX Rouge Cream Blush in the shade 'Glow'.If your unfamiliar with this company then you can check out my introductory post here,basically I just mentioned what I received,when I'll be reviewing the products,who the company is and what they do, so I would defiantly advise you to check out that.Here in Ireland NYX isn't available as far as I know so the only choice is buying online and this is one of many websites that offer NYX products for a cheap,affordable price and ships worldwide.

Packaging:I really do like the packaging on these cream blushes,they remind me of Mac in a way,quite similar.It's black with a see through flip back lid and the name of the brand and how much product your getting is on the front and the shade,ingredients,and any other information is on the back.It's very sturdy and is not cheap looking what so ever which I like,as it is a cheap product compared to the Mac Cream Blushes.
Product:First things first your getting exactly 3.5g of product which is a nice amount for the price,it's going to last you.As you can see from the swatches above these blushes are very pigmented and the shade 'Glow' contains no shimmer,which is good in a way as most people do prefer a matte blush.I have to say when I first seen it I was slightly shocked,it looked almost red in the pan and personally I don't think that shade of blush suits me and if not applied correctly can turn out horribly wrong but once applied to the cheeks it gives a gorgeous natural glow,hence the name and I would describe the colour as a deep rosy pink rather than full on red,you can see the true colour once it's blended out,it's not as crazy looking as I made it out to be.The constituency is very smooth and creamy and literally just glides onto your face,after I used this I thought to myself why am I actually using powder blushes? These are just so much better! Seriously more brands should start making cream blushes because there amazing.
Lasting Power:When used with a primer and setting spray this does go a long way and would last a good 6 hours+ before you can see it slightly fading but you don't need to bring this around with you for touch ups,that's something I never do with blush because most of them do last you the whole day anyway and by evening you can just notice a small change but nothing major.
Colour Range:These are available in 13 different shades altogether ranging from bright pinks to dark pinks,oranges to browns so your bound to find a colour to suit you,there defiantly is a nice selection of shades to choose from which I like in a brand.
Price:The Rouge Cream Blushes are priced at $5.53 on the Blanc II Noir website so when converted to my currency they defiantly are very cheap and affordable which is a huge thumbs up for me.
Would I Re-Purchase? I don't think I will have to be re-purchasing this shade for a while but I defiantly have a few more shades down on my wishlist that I would like to try out so I most defiantly will be re-purchasing these.Overall I would rate this product 9.5/10
