I bought the NYX (nix) Powder Blush in Rose Garden about a year ago, and it sat unappreciated for quite a while. I got around to trying it about six months ago. I loved it, so when Target started carrying NYX I immediately picked up Pinched as well. Well, after freaking out at my computer screen when I first heard that on Nouveau Cheap. Anyways, on to the actual review!

Rose Garden is a light yellow pink with golden shimmer. Its pigmentation is medium, but that just makes it more foolproof. It applies smoothly and looks very natural.

Pinched is a darker corally pink, again with golden shimmer. The pigmentation is stronger, but it blends out easily and still looks natural.

Large shade selection
Pigmentation isn't on par with, say, NARS
May be too shimmery for some- there are matte shades
Packaging is somewhat delicate
So overall, I love these, and would recommend them to anyone looking for an inexpensive powder blushes. I think Desert Rose and Peach are next on my list!
Have any of you tried these? Thoughts?
