Something New: NYX HD Grinding Blush

it's true when they say "when it rains, it pours.." only this time, we are being showered with good (and beautiful) new stuff from NYX Cosmetics.

we all know about HD makeup...it's makeup that is made of superfine, micronized pigments that allow people to achieve a flawless, almost airbrushed look. in front of HD cameras, the slightest amount of imperfections can be seen if makeup of inferior quality are used. so having said that, if we can use everything HD..we will, right!?

the first HD blush that i came across with was that of CARGO (which i still have, and still love)..so when Sol told me about that the new HD line from NYX has blush, i was just too excited.

NYX HD Grinding Blush

A revolutionary system for face blush. This genius system grinds mineral-enriched high-definition blush powder that deflects light from skin an makes pores appear smaller and smoother. Perfect for photos an filming. Grinding powder allows you to control the amount you need and keeps remaining product fresh. Say goodbye to oil trappings on powders, contamination, and cracking.

the lid comes with a mirror

alright, i know what you're thinking...it does remind us of this grinding foundation from another brand. yep, it does look like the Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

(wait til you see the grinding foundation also from NYX)

to get this to work, just rotate the lid clockwise until the desired amount of blush is chopped off:

now on to the swatches:

American Girl, Apricot

English Rose, Georgia Peach

Menage a Trois, Nutmeg

Sangria in Madrid, Terra Cota

my personal favorites are English Rose, Menage A Trois, Sangria in Madrid and Georgia Peach (though Sol doesn't approve of it...well, i guess i don't really look good in peaches!). these blushes are pigmented and blends easily into the skin. with the "grinding" technique, you can control the amount you need and it does keep the product from contamination.

priced at Php750, i can say that it does come with a hefty price tag for a drugstore brand...but hey, it's HD and still affordable as compared to other brands that offer HD line.

again, these babies are not available locally but you can get them by placing your orders at Digitaltraincase. and yeah, i am just one of you ladies waiting for these to be available in her online store soon!

Does anyone know when Sol will be having another NYX Pre-order? I want to have Menage a Trois, Sangria in Madrid, Apricot, and Georgia Peach!

Basically, I want to have most of NYX's HD line. I sent her a text the other day and she said Menage a Trois isn't available anymore on-hand.... =(
