Most Helpful Positive Review Great pigment
Ok so first impressions .... packaging is simple and plain. Quality is not the best but I am guessing in order to make it affordable at about $5-$7, it is what it is. Scent is slightly "perfumey" so was not a fan of that but not overwhelming so I was ok with it. The Container does hold allot of product. It does have a light shimmer and it does have allot pigment so when you apply start light and build from there. My skin is light to medium and i had to blend it out a loos more than my other blushes. I received this product for feee so the color would not be my first choice. I usually go for something little lighter BUT for summer it will be great with a tan especially it has some shimmer. Good product for the money.NYX Sweet Cheeks Creamy Powder Glow Blush (Product received free for review purposes only. All opinions are my own) #free #contest #NYXsweetcheeks
Most Helpful Critical Review Pretty blush, want to try more shades!
I was so excited to receive my NYX sweet cheeks blush in the shade bang bang ! I'm a big fan of NYX products :) The shade I got has a beautiful subtle sparkly glow to it and when I swatched it on my hand the pigmentation was great. Unfortunately the shade that I received was randomly selected and therefore it didn't quite fit my skin tone and personal taste. Still, I tried to use it with a very light hand and it was still very beautiful, though I believe on someone with a darker complexion it would be stunning. I am just very fair. The texture of it was so smooth and buttery and I loved the subtle sparkly glow it adds to my cheeks almost like a highlighter would. I didn't notice it fading away quickly or it lasting very long.. Pretty standard for a drugstore blush. And the packaging is pretty minimal, but I feel like you get plenty of product as far as a blush goes! I'm definitely interested to try other shades! In the left photo I swatched the blush with a brush and then three swipes of my finger without dipping back into the pan. And in the photo on the right I used tons of NYX products: foundation, 8-pan powder\contour palette, strobe of genius highlighter palette, glitter glue and loose glitter on my eyelids, epic ink eyeliner, and micro brow pencil in the shade taupe. And of course, my new sweet cheeks blush! I received this product complimentary for review purposes.

This blush has a decent amount of pigment. It is cute, easy to use, and good quality. Great for beginners just starting to use blush

I really like this blush. It is easily blended but a little goes a long way. I applied with my fingers with just a dot and then blended. You can always add more and it did last all day. My only complaint is that the compact is tough to open and you end up digging your finger nail into the product before you even apply
So glad I tried it.

I was running low on the old formula in Taupe and I saw the new formulas on sale, so I picked up the matte and the shimmer version...
WOW I was surprised. They changed the Taupe color yet again in both the matte and shimmer, but I am fair skinned neutral tone so they both still worked for me and may actually be better then the two previous versions (I still have)
The shimmer was luminous not glittery. It works well with both matte and luminous foundations. I think it gives your face for lack of a better word animation.. the light softy plays with this color. I cant wait to try the blush, I have been using matte blushes for so long.

Shimmery/like a highlighter
Jojomakeup from NWIndiana
I was looking for a buttery type blush to give a nice glow. This was super shimmery. More like a highlighter.
kennya from fort Lauderdale, florida
this is the perfect blush for my medium deep skin tone, it's not to shimmery but adds a nice touch if you're not j to the matte look.
MJB from TX
Discovered while browsing online and wanted a new blush (Revolution is my go to). Citrine Rose is peachy & perfect for my complexion! Will get Red Riot next (was sold out at the time)
Not as expected, but not bad!
Bee's Knees from Minnesota
It's very difficult to find a very bright blush that actually works. As for the color, I would say this was what I was looking for! At first I was nervous that it wasn't going to work out because I swatched it on my hand using my finger and nothing showed up. Luckily I stuck with it and used a fluffy brush to try it out on my face and found out that it's actually nicely pigmented and easy to build up more color. It does have a few downsides. They weren't kidding when they labeled the product as 'glowy' because this blush practically doubles as a highlighter. It's an unexpected quality, but I kind of like it! It's also a little greasy, but I kind of expected that from a cream blush. If you put it higher up on your face so the shimmer looks more natural and you maybe pat it a few times with a tissue to remove some of the grease, it works great! A lot of people in the reviews are saying that it's too dark, and I think that's dumb. If it's too dark, then you bought the wrong color. That's not a fault of the product, that's a fault of you! I have very fair skin so I carefully picked one that I thought would work for me and luckily I was correct. The pictures match pretty well to the product. Overall, not my favorite blush, but it works pretty well!
Stephanie from Oregon
I don't really use this because it's so pigmented and dark. I think a lighter color would be better for me. When I do use it, I use very little. It is a nice color though!
Not for my cheeks, but awesome eyeshadow!
KLittle from California
I have this in the shade So Taupe, which I bought as a possible contour shade for my fair skin. The powder itself is lovely, but it does have some glitter particles in it, so it would t be a contour for me, not a blush if it were an appropriate blush shade. That said, the powder is soft, pigmented, buildable, and blend able, and I am loving it as an eyeshadow. Plus, it's inexpensive and cruelty free. Will repurchase for sure.
Disappointed broken product
Jenn82 from Texas
I gave it two stars because the product is beautiful but I couldn't use it because it was completely broken. So sad
came in broken
sav from mississippi
it's a good product, well pigmented & a nice color, but it came in broken.
Not bad but not great either
Kristina from Scranton pa
I believe I should have purchased a different shade but it was the only shade available at the time. It's very bright. Need very little. Goes a long way. Will last me a very long time because it's very high pigmented. Doesn't give me a "glow" look though. It appears matte on me. I like just a little glow(shimmer). But it does look nice when used with highlighter. I also wouldn't say it's creamy. It appears powdery to me. I've used better NYX blushes in the past so this one just isn't my favorite.
Very pigmented and cute

I live the color and it shine too no need to add hilight it's more like a blush / hilight product
Great Pigment - My New Go-to Blush!
Alicat from Indianapolis, IN
I was on the hunt for a similar shade of blush I ran out of and NYX matched up pretty well! I got the "Bang Bang" shade and love it. It applies so smoothly and doesn't take a lot to achieve a pretty glowing effect. I will definitely continue to buy NYX's blush products!
True to color

Silence is golden and Bang Bang work very well with great pigmentation and easy to blend. Love the glow these both give as well

Can you say PIGMENT!...
ashleyk182 from undisclosed
Can you say PIGMENT! this blush is beautiful! It goes on really pigmented so you do need to go in with a light hand. It blends beautifully too! I love this blush and was very surprised with its color and pigment, and performance! I have this one and a darker color (can't remember the name) but I will be getting more! I definitely recommend!

I think the shade I got is too red for my skin color, however it still looks amazing. Radiant, strong enough and it spreads around like a gorgeous subtle glittery cream

tabassumhoquetasnim from undisclosed
Hands down one of my favorite blushes. It's a little too pigmented but easily blendable. You can also start with a little and build up. I find that this lasts all day as well. It blends in like a cream but the product itself is not cream so you can apply it after powdering down your foundation. The colors are beautiful as well.

luza_gp from undisclosed
Price is good for quality and for the fact that there arent any yellow blushes on the market. the matte one is as good as this one, Id recommend it totally
Not the greatest blush...
midwest_glamour from undisclosed
Not the greatest blush in the world but I guess it will work in a pinch. It is more shimmery than I prefer and it is not very pigmented but it did blend out nicely. I would recommend it if you like extra shimmer.
