NYX Cosmetics is a really fun brand that has an array of colors for a great price. Their powder blush in Cinnamon has easily become one of my favorite orange blushes- and the $6 price tag is more than reasonable. Do I think this name is appropriate for the color? Not so much…but who cares! This just shows that you can make a great looking blush for anyone- even those who can’t afford higher end brands. I wish more mass brands incorporated orange- it isn’t as scary as it seems! In my opinion, orange is the new red.
Don’t be frightened- this blush’s bark is bigger than it’s bite. It applies at the perfect opacity so you don’t end up with clown cheeks. (Makeup PET PEEVE!) There was this girl in my high school that wore bright orange blush striped from her nose to her temple, pretty much. Yikes! I like to apply blush with an angled contour brush, such as the Sigma F40 to get the perfect look. If you apply your blush too harshly, blend it out using your powder brush so you don’t deposit any more color to your cheeks!
