I got this Nicka K New York blush in my January Glossybox. The blusher I currently use also came from a Glossybox about a year ago. I’ve just hit pan on it and wanted to know if I could use this as my next staple or if I should buy a new one.
First off, the packaging is adorable. It screws open and there’s a sponge/pad that you use for application. There is a mirror on top which is pretty small, though you could get away with using it if you had no other option as you can just about see one cheek at a time.
It’s that plastic that looks metal which can come across tacky. You pick it up expecting a heavy glass tub but it’s light plastic. Good for carrying around, but if you’re after quality packaging it’s probably not for you.
I found the application process pretty easy. I tapped the sponge on my cheek which realised a puff of product, then blended it in. It doesn’t release more product if you just blend so there’s no need to worry about a lack of control.
This is me with no blusher:
And then again with blusher:
A apologise for the scabby nails. I didn’t realise they were so naff. Waaahh. THIS IS REAL LIFE, PEOPLE. They’re worse now, by the way.
Overall I like this product and I probably will use it in place of my old blusher when it runs out completely. I like the tone of it and feel like it gives me that flushed cheeky look that I’m after.
Are you a fan? What’s your blush of choice?
