Finally! Thanks to my finally becoming an Amazon Prime user, I was finally able to snatch NYX’s ‘Taupe’ blush. I have been fiending over this since I began watching Nikkie on YouTube. As a side note, if you don’t watch her videos, DO. She is so talented and absolutely hiiiiilarious. You’ll love her.
I had heard that this blush was the perfect shade for us ghostly gals for contouring. Until now I have been using Too Faced’s Chocolate Soleil bronzer which in all honesty, is still dang good for my complexion. It warms me up enough without making me orange and look terrible. NYX’s ‘Taupe’ is really good strictly for contouring as you won’t get much warmth from such a cool-toned product.
It’s almost as if NYX made this specifically for contouring as I have absolutely no idea how it could be pulled off as a blush on any skin tone. The issue I had had continually is that Ulta (the only store around me that carries a full-ish NYX line) does not carry this shade. I also wasn’t into placing an order on their website for one five buck blush. Another side note, yeah. This is only $5. Crazy!! But finally, as I said, Amazon Prime has saved my butt and I got free shipping and was able to order this through there.
To get a precise contour, I apply this with my Sigma E40 brush to pack the color on and then continue on with a large powder brush to blend it out smoothly. Such a hit for me! So happy with the color.
