Since I saw these on Instagram months ago I have been watching the Boots website like a hawk waiting for the NYX Ombre Blushers to be released in the UK. Six shades have been released in the UK but the US have a few more shades. The ombre design is just so pretty, it was so hard to narrow it down to what shades I wanted. NYX are really pulling it out of the bag lately, these blushers are amazing.
All the ombre blushers have a light shade at the top which slowly turns into a dark shade as you go down. You get 8g of product which is really good for the £8 price tag. I love that these are bigger than most blushers. The light shade is probably a quarter of the blush with the dark shade being the main shade.
The first shade I went for is Strictly Chic which is a peach/orange toned blush and the second shade Mauve Me is a lilac/mauve toned blush. You can use the light and dark shades on their own or mix them together to create a different shade.
I love how both shades of Strictly Chic look, the light shade is a light peachy with shimmer whilst the darker shade has a more orange tone and more matte. When they are mixed together they create a gorgeous shimmery darker peach shade.
I think I will be wearing this blush alot more in Autumn/Winter as the shades are more mauve/berry toned. The light shade is quite lilac looking which I love. I own MAC Full of Joy which is a lilac blush, it is stunning. The darker shade is more on the dark berry tones. When mixed together you get the most stunning mauve shade.
Overall I love both of the shades I picked up. I love how you have the option of using each shade on it's own or mixing them together. There is a shade for everyone. I hope NYX release the other shades in the UK.
